The handsome red brick building known as “Old Engine House No. 24” hasn’t been used as a fire station for a long time.
The St. Paul fire station, built in 1916, is one of about six old neighborhood-based stations. It’s located at the corner of East Seventh Street and Flandrau Avenue, one block west of White Bear Avenue, nestled in the largely residential Greater East Side neighborhood.
Golfers get in an early fall game out at Phalen Golf Course.
City officials say St. Paul’s four municipal golf courses have long been a black hole for city funds.
Though the courses were once self-sustaining, since 2008 the four courses have gone a total of $5 million into the red, said Brad Meyer, spokesperson for St. Paul Parks and Recreation. The city needs to take action, he said.
A 15-year-old involved in the Aug. 4 assault on 27-year-old Ray Widstrand was sentenced to 1 1/2 to two years in a juvenile corrections facility, according to the Ramsey County attorney’s office.

As plans move forward for a new fire station for Maplewood, St. Paul city officials say the city and its residents were left out of the planning process.

The original zombie, back to undead
If you can’t handle an onslaught of zombies -- a zombie from the left, a zombie from the right, a zombie from behind and a zombie head on -- you may want to stay at home, rather than go to the Historic Mounds Theatre’s production of “Night of the Living Dead” on Halloween weekend.
Scares, gore and a sense of claustrophobia are what Derek Dirlam and Sal Niteo are hoping will pull you into their immersive, live production of the classic 1968 zombie horror flick.

It’s not everyday that you can walk down lower Payne Avenue, turn off half a block, and run into thirty CEO’s wearing blue jeans and holding circular saws.
But that was the scene on Monday on the 600 block of Whitall Street where the leaders of companies like Cargill, Andersen Windows, Allianz Life Insurance Company, and Bremer Bank spent the day fitting siding onto a Habitat for Humanity town home.
