A journey to recovery

Mother and son tell their story of overcoming addiction

It was never something Martha Wegner thought would happen to her family. 

Her teenage son, David, became addicted to drugs, and she was forced to give him a “tough love” ultimatum: get treatment or get out.

“Most people say they could never do that, but we didn’t have any choice. There was nothing left for us to do,” Martha says. “He wasn’t getting the help he needed, and it was really causing havoc in our family.”

This moment was just one stop in David’s three-year battle with addiction. Now, Martha and David travel to area churches talking about their family’s struggle and how they overcame it.

Maplewood’s ‘new beginning’ has begun to show


Maplewood’s new logo, top, incorporated a clear maple leaf that will take on the color of whatever is behind it, or it can remain white.

Maplewood’s city logo changed when the website was updated last October, but over the past few months as the city has been phasing out the old logo, residents have begun noticing the change.

Option for a fourth Mounds View liquor store denied by city council


Mounds View’s former Snap Market at 2408 County Road I is being eyed by a possible tenant interested in opening a liquor store. The landowner, however, first needs to pay back taxes on the property before continuing the application process for a liquor license. (Jesse Poole/Bulletin)

Back taxes stall application for liquor license

Relatively small compared to its neighboring Ramsey County cities, with fewer than 13,000 residents, Mound View is home to three off-sale liquor stores, each located just off County Highway 10 and less than a mile apart from each other. 

The possibility of adding a fourth liquor store was voted down by Mounds View City Council last week at the recommendation of city staff, much to the appreciation of several residents in the council chambers that night. 

The 5-0 vote, however, was not based on the residents’ comments opposing the idea of a new liquor store opening at 2408 County Road I. Instead, the denial was due to ordinance restrictions that the applicant needed to sort out before continuing the application process.

Construction to last until November

Monday marked the start of a new round of road construction on Interstate 694, when crews began preliminary work on a project that will eventually add a third lane to the westbound segment that goes through Shoreview.

Specifically, the new lane will be added between Rice Street in Little Canada and Lexington Avenue in Arden Hills. 

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, lane restrictions will be in effect between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Friday so construction crews can work to widen the roadway in preparation to shift traffic in mid-June to new temporary lanes.
