Lake Phalen waterfall to get a redo

A map of the waterfall plan shows how water will feed from Lake Phalen to the waterfall, and then back out to the lake, under ornamental grates. (submitted graphic)

Lake Phalen will get a little perking up for next spring, when water will again pour down the old manmade falls.
The waterfall, which sits on the west side of Lake Phalen, was built in the 1950s when the lake levels seemed to be receding -- the manmade waterfall drew from a nearby well and was a makeshift way of replenishing the water supply, said Brian Murphy, landscape architect with St. Paul Parks and Recreation, who is in charge of the project.

Cliff Gebhard’s shop is full of curiosities from bric-a-brac to an ìInformationî sign, much like the man himself. (Patrick Larkin/Review)

Cliff’s Barber Shop is one of those places that was always full of regulars, quirk and charm, and where the haircut service provided wasn’t necessarily the only reason you’d swing by.
Rather, you’d also be there to catch a story, and to chat with your neighbors.
It’s been a community of sorts for the owner, Cliff Gebhard, and his customers.
