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.

As ‘last resort,’ city may seek private partners for its golf courses


Golfers get in an early fall game out at Phalen Golf Course.

City officials say St. Paul’s four municipal golf courses have long been a black hole for city funds.
Though the courses were once self-sustaining, since 2008 the four courses have gone a total of $5 million into the red, said Brad Meyer, spokesperson for St. Paul Parks and Recreation.  The city needs to take action, he said.

Letter: ‘New absentee vote rights’

On Nov. 5, we will elect a new Mayor and two City Council Members for Maplewood. Last year a bill was passed that we would have a no excuse needed for the right to vote on absentee ballot, so you can go to City Hall and vote anytime convenient for you. No waiting in long lines, or fearing bad weather.

As plans move forward for a new fire station for Maplewood, St. Paul city officials say the city and its residents were left out of the planning process.
“I wish I could unring the bell,” said city council president Kathy Lantry, who represents the St. Paul neighborhood across the street from the proposed Maplewood fire station. “I had no idea.”
