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.

‘Robot! Robot!’ Make way -- the future’s coming through


Robotics teams have team colors, referees in striped shirts, cheerleaders, mascots and their own devoted fan sections. (photos by Linda Baumeister and Holly Wenzel)

Make no mistake: these kids could hot-wire your car, hack its computer system, weld on enough hardware to make it do somersaults and secure corporate financing for the project in the time it takes you to parallel park it.
And then they’d put it on their college application forms.
Because the skills robotics students have learned -- from computer coding to negotiation, welding to presentation skills -- can power some pretty bright futures.

“Pea Soup and Tomatoes”


The title of “Pea Soup and Tomatoes” comes from the words of Scott’s parents. Before the storm, her mother said the sky looked like “pea soup,” while her father said it looked like a tornado was coming. The then two-year-old Scott misheard “tornado” as “tomato.” (submitted photos)

St. Anthony author brings tornado history to life
On May 6, 1965, six of the most violent tornadoes in Minnesota history swept across the Twin Cities area. Throughout the course of “The Longest Night,” as the event came to be called, the tornado outbreak killed thirteen people, injured nearly 700 and caused millions of dollars in damages across the seven-county metro area.
