Red Rock Corridor plans coming along

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.

Veterans organizations look to recruit younger members
As one of North St. Paul's few remaining World War II veterans, Ellsworth Erickson, 92, considers the completion of the new North St. Paul Veterans Park one of his greatest life achievements.
He may not have attended every committee meeting during the design and constructions phases, but he's credited with igniting the idea with some initial sketches, years back.

Sitting on a train with windows draped in black, Lizzie, 10, and her brother Peter, 7, were among a group of fearful, anxious children being sent to the safety of Swainedale in the Yorkshire countryside to live with strangers during the World War II bombings in England. Some host families welcomed the children and others, like Lizzie and Peter's, found them a burden.
