An urban forest is growing in a surprising area of Maplewood. Where one might expect to find a desert of paint lines, concrete and vehicles, an oasis of trees, gardens and art is popping up.
Last week, the Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District’s stormwater infiltration retrofit project at the Maplewood Mall parking lot was highlighted as part of the 2013 International Low Impact Development Symposium.
The symposium, which garners the attention of thousands of engineers, professors, environmentalists and other professionals each year, is hosted by the University of Minnesota at the St. Paul RiverCentre. The conference is a series of lectures and presentations about various programs across the Midwest that work to address urban water quality issues like stormwater runoff and sewer overflows.

Volunteer teams paint NSP, Maplewood homes

If you live in a community in the Twin Cities, chances are good you’ve seen a house that has been painted by a Paint-A-Thon team. Over the last 29 years, Paint-A-Thon volunteers have painted 6,300 homes in the seven-county metro area.
Saturday, Aug. 3, was the official “paint day” for the 60 teams that participated in this year’s Paint-A-Thon, a program offered through the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches. Now in its 29th year, the program caters to low-income seniors and the physically disabled, who may not be able to paint their homes on their own.

The Minnesota Department of Health published a report of findings last week that says the death of a Ramsey County Care Center resident in April was the result of staff error.
The resident, who was supposed to be on a diet of puree-texture food, choked and died April 1 after being served an Easter holiday lunch. The resident did not have any teeth, and her care plan called for attendants to only serve her food the consistency of pudding. Additionally, the report says, the woman had a history of choking on solid foods.
