Keep fire hydrants clear

Roseville has more than 1,700 fire hydrants. Keeping hydrants accessible year-round is challenging. That is why the City of Roseville is asking for your help.
When the snow stops falling and it is time to clear your driveways and walks, please take a few minutes and check on the nearby fire hydrants. Dig out a three foot area around the hydrant. Ask a neighbor to help or have several neighbors take turns keeping the hydrants clear of snow. This act of kindness could benefit the entire neighborhood.

The ski facility is no longer the rustic, mom-and-pop operation that attracted skiers for decades. The redesigned resort now features high-tech snowmaking machines, a new guest-services building, with a  stainless steel look, and improved terrain park.

What a difference a portrait makes

Two Mounds Park Academy students are sometimes compensated for taking senior photos for Twin Cities high-schoolers who can’t afford a professional photographer, but usually not with money.
“We’ve been paid in hugs, candy and donations,” said Kendra Stone, who lives in Lake Elmo.
That’s payment enough for the 18-year-old and Phillipe Thao of Hudson, Wis., who teamed up in May to take portraits of teens nearing graduation for free.
