Little farm in the big city


Marjorie Otto photo/Review • The Rivoli Bluff Farm, located in the Railroad Island neighborhood at the western end of Minnehaha Avenue, consists of a large garden, an orchard, beehives and a gravel garden for starting trees. New this year, a high tunnel greenhouse is being constructed, which will extend the time for produce to grow. The farm is run by Urban Roots, an East Side youth organization that employs area high school students and teaches them agriculture, cooking and conservation skills.

Walking down to the Rivoli Bluff Farm, some may forget they are still in the heart of the city as they breath the smell of fresh-turned soil and watch bees whiz by.

Traces of lead found in New Brighton water


Solomon Gustavo • A resident talked about water softening services at the end of New Brighton City Manager Dean Lotter’s water update presentation during the New Brighton Community Open House at the New Brighton Community Center May 5.

Roseville firefighters learn empathy with dementia simulations


Mike Munzenrider photo • Roseville firefighter Chris Rice readied himself for a dementia simulation May 9 at Cherrywood Pointe of Roseville at Lexington with help from Roseville communications specialist Carolyn Curti. Rice and 16 others from the Roseville Fire Department went through the simulation the first week of May at the senior community across the street from the city’s fire station to better understand what it’s like for people who have dementia.

The dementia simulation at Cherrywood Pointe of Roseville at Lexington is decidedly low tech, but it’s effective virtual reality, nonetheless.

Rosedale management says its options are wide open with Herberger’s closure


Mike Munzenrider • Rosedale Center now owns the soon-to-be vacant Herberger’s, and is keeping its options open for the 150,000-square-foot of space. Mall management said it could be used for retail, medical, office space, a hotel or even housing.

Despite the large “going out of business” signs on the Rosedale Center Herberger’s that catch motorists’ eyes as they pass on Highway 36, Rosedale general manager Scott Michaelis said the state of the mall is “fantastic.”
