Highway 96 bridge replacement draws nearer

Come the end of the year, the new Highway 96 bridge over Interstate 35W will be wider than before, more pedestrian friendly and have links to trails. Stop lights will replace stop signs and the interchange will become a diverging diamond interchange, which MnDOT says shifts traffic to cut down on potential accident points. (submitted graphic)

Arden Hills residents and commuters have long expected driving dramatics in the city this summer — so much so that Mayor David Grant referred to the situation as "The Bridges of Ramsey County" — though, readers can drive a little easier, for now.

North Oaks author's book to be released May 1

On one of her many walks through the woods near her North Oaks home, author Cheryl Blackford saw a "lone coyote trotting across the frozen lake" and wondered how it lived successfully so close to an urban area.

Blackford says she walks outside almost every day, regardless of the weather. It's her thinking time for writing stories, including imagining the setting for her newly published children's picture book, "Hungry Coyote," a story about a year in the life of an urban coyote.
