Here comes the sun: Mounds View schools put up solar panels


Solar panels were recently installed on the roof of Chippewa Middle School. Five more Mounds View schools, including Island Lake, Pike Lake, Pinewood elementary school, and Irondale and Mounds View high schools will have panels installed by the end of the year. (submitted photo)

Some roofs are meant to do far more than protect a building from weather, critters and a beating sun. 

According to Chippewa Middle School principal Rob Reetz, some roofs do all that and generate energy as well.

Rice Creek Commons’ development could assist in name change

Attempting to change the name of County Highway 10 is nothing new for the city of Mounds View. It’s been an ongoing topic since the early 2000s. 

At points, the undertaking has seen progress, solutions and agreements with other cities. However, an equal amount of setbacks and delays have been a part of the story as well. That’s why the busy thoroughfare is still called County Highway 10, according to Mounds View City Council member Gary Meehlhause.

Local 15-year death investigation rekindled by reconstruction of victim’s face

Police ask for help identifying woman 

A woman who was found dead in New Brighton 15 years ago has never been identified, but now the image of her face has reemerged through facial reconstruction technologies, and though it’s only a likeness, police are hoping it will lead to new information in the cold case. 

The investigation of the woman’s death began in the fall of 2000, when her body was found by two hikers just off a little-used path in Long Lake Regional Park. Police believe the corpse had been lying there for at least two months by the time it was found Sept. 15.

The New Brighton Department of Public Safety requested assistance from the FBI last year, specifically to have them reassemble characteristics of the woman’s face using facial reconstruction. The image was released to the public last week.

Precinct party caucuses are a week away

Parties prepare for Super Tuesday

Precinct party caucuses are a week away on March 1 — Super Tuesday — when voters in Minnesota and 12 other states will caucus for presidential candidates, among other party business.

The events, which begin at 7 p.m., are run completely by state political parties and deal with internal party business so caucus rules and happenings will vary, district by district.

Roseville Review area Republicans and DFLers who plan to caucus likely live in either House District 42B or 66A; officials in both parties are expecting lots of caucus participation during this presidential election year.

Mounds View puts an end to the trash talk

On any given Mounds View street all four city-licensed trash-hauling companies can be seen represented by their garbage bins awaiting pick-up. The City Council has decided not to pursue looking into organized collection, which would essentially reduce the number of garbage trucks on individual residential streets to one truck, while dividing and designating geographical sections of the city to the hauling companies.

The trash talks are over, according to the Mounds View City Council, which said the contentious discussions concerning the city switching to an organized system of collecting garbage will be “discontinued.”
