For the past 18 years, Barb and Ed Gorski have been volunteering around the community, including Gramcery Co-Op, where they live. They are the 2016 recipients of the Service to Others Humanitarian Recognition.
Like clockwork, Barb, 78, and Ed, 83, Gorski pull up to Neighbors, Inc., in South St. Paul to unload their minivan full of bread donations.
This was the winning entry, by Ihrig, Panure and Goecke, in the design contest held by the U.S. Green Council and the Lower Phalen Creek Project. This shows what a possible design may look like for the future Wakan Tipi interpretive site. (submitted graphic)
With three months under her belt, Melanie Kleiss is as excited as ever about the future of the Lower Phalen Creek Project.
Kleiss became the new director of the Lower Phalen Creek Project at the start of 2016.
As planning continues for the Gateway Gold Line, a bus rapid transit line that would run from downtown St. Paul to the east metro suburbs, planners are finding that support varies from one community to another.

Warm weather and well work main concerns
With unseasonably warm weather and a return of outdoor water usage for gardens, car washes and kiddie pools just around the corner, New Brighton set the city’s water conservation status to yellow, as of March 11.
The city supplies residents with water pumped from underground aquifers, and according to city manager Dean Lotter, two of the city’s four wells require preventative maintenance, which he said should be done now, rather than later.
The yellow conservation status means New Brighton residents using municipal water will not be permitted to water yards and gardens between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. and will be required to follow an odd/even sprinkling ban. Residents will also be prohibited from filling swimming pools or washing cars.
