Over the past two seasons, the Roseville Area High School volleyball hasn’t lost a set in the section playoffs. The Raiders will try to keep that streak intact this week when it plays in the Section 4AAA semifinals.
Roseville recorded three consecutive three-set sweeps en route to a berth in the 2012 state tournament and began defense of that section title on Thursday with a three-set sweep of Henry Sibley, 25-18, 25-11, 25-11.

Hoppy and Friends, a group of three seasoned musicians (four if you count the stuffed frog drummer) have been steadily building a following at Dunn Bros Coffee Shop in Roseville on Monday mornings.
The band is made up of Owen Rasmussen, a New Brighton resident originally from Roseville, Wally Walstad of St. Paul and Merlin "Brunkow" Bronco of Minneapolis. The three men range in age from their mid-sixties to early seventies and have been playing music since they were teenagers, although not together.

Jim DuRose became a Roseville resident when he was just a lad of eight, following his family’s move from St. Paul. He began his career at the Countryside as a dishwasher and bus boy while attending Mounds View High School, graduating from MVHS in 1976.
The Roseville Area High School girls cross country team ran its state-meet streak to five consecutive years thanks to its second-place finish at last week’s section meet.
The Raiders ended up with 88 points at the Section 4AA meet on Oct. 23 at the Les Bolstad Golf Course to hold off third-place White Bear Lake, which had 102 points. East Ridge won the section team title with 51 points.

Join in a new Roseville holiday tradition - the first annual Ovalumination lighting event - to mark the Guidant John Rose Oval’s 20th anniversary. Hundreds of trees will be illuminated around the OVAL from early November to Jan. 31, and will be free for all to view.
Individuals, community groups and local businesses are invited to chose a 12-, 20- or 30- foot arborvitae or evergreen from over 300 surrounding the Oval and sponsor the LED lights that will illuminate it during the holidays.
To address a controversy that seems to be growing in New Brighton, the city council recently established an urban farming task force, charged with making recommendations to the council on all things grown on a farm, from apples to zucchini, from pigs to butterflies.
But chickens seem to be at the core of the issue, and that will likely be the focus of the group.
