Shots took down heavily armed, drunken man with mental health issues
A Ramsey County grand jury has found that two St. Paul police officers will face no charges after shooting a man to death during a tense standoff at his rental house on the 400 block of White Bear Avenue last March.
“The Grand Jury determined that probable cause did not exist to charge either Saint Paul police officer with a crime,” a statement from the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office reads.

Jane Prince helps broker deal
In her first week on the job, Ward 7's new council person, Jane Prince, has already helped cut a deal to give six properties in Dayton's Bluff's historic district a fighting chance.
The solution, she said, was simple: get the interested parties together for an in-person discussion.
The proposed Red Rock Corridor bus rapid transit line would connect southwest suburbs as far out as Hastings to St. Paul. The route would link up with the Gateway Corridor’s stops in Dayton’s Bluff before continuing on into downtown St. Paul. (submitted graphic)
East Side stops added to plan
East Side residents could one day use a bus rapid transit line to go to jobs in Cottage Grove.
By the same route, southwest suburbanites from Newport all the way down to Hastings could easily travel into the East Side to visit restaurants or go to school at Metropolitan State University, or commute to work in downtown St. Paul. And from there, they could link up with other transit lines such as the Green Line light rail route between Minneapolis and St. Paul.

New Ward 7 council member’s eyes are to children
Starting this week, a significant chunk of the East Side will have a new city council representative.
Long-time Dayton’s Bluff resident Jane Prince will step into the shoes that were for over 17 years filled by Kathy Lantry, who’s now the city’s Public Works director.
