A truck and the spare time are all one man says he needs to help
It was just after 9:15 a.m. on Oct. 27, a couple hours into the final farmers market of the year at the Catholic Church of Corpus Christi in Roseville, and Gerry Sande was confident he'd met his goal.
"Beautifully," Sande said when asked how the day was going, as he stood in front of his red pickup truck that sported a sign listing the total pounds of donated food he'd collected from customers and vendors at the seasonal market this year.

The Fox Cities area is full of surprises

Who would have thought that in 1882, the beautiful Victorian Hearthstone home overlooking the Fox River in Appleton, Wisconsin, would be the first home in the world to be lighted by hydroelectricity from a central station using the Thomas Edison system?
The event put the area on the map and launched unimaginable changes in how people cooked, cleaned, lived and entertained themselves in their homes.

City, DNR negotiate to appease residents

Some homeowners on Casey Lake would like to invest in some property improvements.
But they may have to put their visions on hold until the city smooths out a few kinks in its newly revised shoreline zoning code.
Lakefront property owners raised issue with the ordinance regulating shoreland setback requirements of up to 150 feet at the Sept. 1 North St. Paul City Council meeting.

Sam Sellie won't let prosthetic leg slow him down
This past April, Sam Sellie, 21, went in for a routine heart surgery to have a leaky aortic valve replaced. The next day, he went into cardiac arrest and ended up back on the operating table. He spent the next two weeks in a medically-induced coma with a machine supporting his heart and lungs.
When he woke up in a hospital bed, he was completely unaware of what his close friends and family already knew: his heart had been saved, but his left leg had been amputated below the knee.
