A new food vendor at the Friday night car shows in downtown North St. Paul quickly caught the attention of locals. Who was serving barbeque off a patio grill at a former eatery? And what were the donations going toward?
Before most people had time to get acquainted, the unlicensed vendor was shut down, simply unaware they were breaking any rules.

Shepherd of the Hills celebrates its 50th
On Sept. 20, a local church congregation will celebrate its golden anniversary. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Shoreview is about to turn the big 5-0.
The first ever Shepherd of the Hills service was held on Sept. 19, 1965 at Island Lake School. 154 people attended this inaugural service. Fast-forward 50 years and the church is still going strong.
Let’s see, what am I going to do today? Whether we think about it consciously or not, we probably do have the question. The little child may say, “Mommy, I’m hungry.” The older person may just do what he or she wants to do without saying anything. At ages 78 and 84, my dear wife and I do things by habit or by planning. Whatever and however we do it there is value in thinking about and having a plan. And of course this is always subject to change.
It can be fun to think back over life. If we remember back, as best we can, our schedules can amaze us. Older folk often do a little reminiscing over a cup of coffee or whatever. The older we are the more likely we grew up on a farm or in a small town. The changes vary but certain pathways are similar. Whatever the pathway, certain elements were always present. The road went from childhood to adolescence to adulthood to middle age to senior citizen.

The 2014-2015 school year is history. This means that some parents will need childcare for their young school children. Let’s suppose that one set of parents has two children. One just finished kindergarten and the other second grade. They can no longer take the bus or be dropped off at school for the day. Both finances and time may be a factor with this family. Somebody needs to be with them. Ten years down the road the whole picture will change. Larger families have more hurdles. We have known a couple of families who have taken in abandoned street children. If you go down to the Union Gospel Mission or some of the other safe houses, you can get a real feel for their situations.
