The Rice Creek Watershed District (RCWD) recently received a $3 million grant from the Clean Water Fund which will be used to improve the water quality in Long Lake.
The grant, which comes from the Minnesota Legacy Fund, will be used for various projects intended to curb pollution entering Rice Creek and surrounding waters that feed Long Lake, focusing on sediments and phosphorus, which cause algae blooms. The long-term goal is to reduce the pollution in the lake by 40 percent.

League of Women Voters notes 60 years of ‘meddlers’


The League of Women Voters of Roseville, Maplewood and Falcon Heights is celebrating its history by issuing a booklet with interviews with several of its pioneers and vintage photos and news clippings about the group. It’s available to look over at the Roseville and Maplewood libraries and Roseville, Maplewood and Falcon Heights city halls; people can also access the booklet and hear interviews at www.romafh.org. The local League’s motto was “Don’t Squawk if You Don’t Vote,” urging women to get out and have a voice on who represents them rather than complaining. (submitted artwork)

What could a group of young women in the 1950s, most married with young children, do to shape the future for themselves and the generations to come?
A better question: what couldn’t they do, given some compelling goals, a bit of free time and a little moxie?
That’s all it took for the pioneers of today’s Roseville, Maplewood and Falcon Heights chapter of the League of Women Voters to put on their hats, gloves and walking shoes and get to work.
