Roseville Citizens: If you don’t want to lose your freedom to choose who you can do business with at your home, be aware that the Roseville City Council will consider the option of organized trash collection for Roseville at its October 21 meeting at 6 p.m.
Ramsey County’s $10.6 million bid for the white elephant Vadnais Heights sports center is a total waste of precious taxpayer dollars. RC citizens of all ages and sports interests have plenty of outlets now; our sports-mad society doesn’t need to take on this loser project.
As a former member of ISD 623 School Board and the parent of two recent Roseville Area High School (RAHS) graduates, I am asking you to “VOTE YES” for the Roseville Area Schools Levy Referendum on Nov. 5.
Just like thousands of other Roseville parents, a few weeks ago, I sent my daughters off to their first day of school. It’s hard to believe that we have a senior and a sophomore in the house. It seems just yesterday I was putting kindergarteners on the bus!
It is most interesting to note the massive loss the city of Vadnais Heights and all of the investors are going to take in the sale of their large Sports Center when it sells for half of what it cost to finance it.
Thank you to residents of Senate District 66 for the opportunity to represent you in the Minnesota Senate! I have appreciated hearing from many of you during the last few months. Although I was disappointed in some of the outcomes, there were many significant gains that will make Minnesota a better state.
This is in response to Deb Eckberg’s Viewpoint article on fighting to get your kids to wear bike helmets. Bike helmets are not just for kids! I was raised in the 60’s and 70’s in rural Minnesota and rode my bike EVERYWHERE.
I fell off my bike a few times ending up rolling in the road ditch.
Somehow I never injured my head... that I remember!
As the lead story of your June 18 issue annouces, “The City of Roseville is inviting residents to check out local neighborhood parks for some playtime and themed activities this summer.”
Terrific. Let’s make the primary themed activity: NO SMOKING. As a former employe of the American Cancer Society, I invite them and you to check out the websites of ACS, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, Minnesota Commissioner of Health and the Minnesota Medical Association, among others, and realize that smoke is a killer and we must smoke out smokers from our parks and other rec facilities to protect our children, ourselves, and visitors.
Your article, “The family that eats together” is one that I am sure is well meant, and in fact a good practice. However, as good a practice as that may be, it will not replace from which it was taken, “The family that prays together, stays together.”
If our governor read the warnings from his commissioner of public health about the dangers from smoking and second-hand smoke to us citizens, the tax on cigarettes not only would be raised significantly more but smoking be would banned as a threat to public health.
