ISD 623 welcomes Harambee to the family


Harambee students head in for one of their first days of school.

Classes resumed Sept. 3 at Harambee Elementary Community Cultures and Environmental Science School along with all other schools in District 623.
Initially, it appeared as though the school would sit dormant this year until a deal was struck in June between the East Metro Integration District (EMID) and ISD 623.
EMID had announced it was no longer able to operate Harambee, located on County Road B in Maplewood, or its other school, Crosswinds East Metro Arts and Science School in Woodbury, due to funding issues, and bills to transfer oversight of the schools to other school districts failed during the 2013 state legislative session.

Roseville gardener wins two State Fair blue ribbons for tomatoes, despite challenges

John Swenson’s dreams of taking home another Minnesota State Fair blue ribbon for his prized tomatoes were almost crushed, literally.
The tomato-growing season was off to a rocky start this year thanks to a late spring and cool start to the summer. But little did Swenson know those weren’t the only challenges that Mother Nature had in store for him.
This spring, Swenson planted ten tomato plants, which when he purchased them from Linder’s Garden Center, near his Roseville home, were just a few inches tall. His plants grew slowly because of the cooler spring and early summer temperatures, but Swenson persevered, believing if he took special care of his plants they’d surely thrive.
