And the questions flowed — more than 100 residents and business owners came to the event armed with their opinions about redesigning the intersections at Highway 120 and Hadley Avenue. They are the only remaining signalized intersections on Highway 36 west of Interstate 694.

‘Wheelage’ tax passed to keep up Ramsey County roads

The Ramsey County Board of Commissioners voted Tuesday to introduce a $10 “wheelage” tax to improve the county’s ailing roads.
The $10 per-vehicle charge, added onto license plate tab fees, will bring in an estimated $3.8 million dollars to fund major construction projects, according to a statement from the county.
Jim Tolaas, director of the county Public Works department, called the new funds “a major infusion that will actually make a meaningful difference that people will be able to see.”

The powerful storms that swept through the Twin Cities metro over the Summer Solstice weekend uprooted thousands of trees and cut power to thousands more. The storms were also detrimental to local wildlife.
The soaking rains and violent winds swept countless baby songbirds from their nests, leaving them defenseless on the soggy ground below.
Luckily, compassionate Minnesotans responded to their rescue, delivering hundreds of them to the capable, hard working staff and volunteers at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in Roseville (WRC).
