Pawn America robbery, shooting suspects make their way through the legal system
Those who regularly read Roseville Police Chief Rick Mathwig’s “One Chief’s Perspective” newsletter recently got a look at the prosecution of the suspects charged in last year’s armed robbery of the Pawn America in Roseville
The May 8 newsletter offered an intriguing look at wha’s happened since the inital investigation, and as the Review delved into the topic, details revealed the robbery was anything but “the perfect crime.”
Quiet zones will be created at crossings along a stretch of railroad tracks just over 2.5 miles long, going from southern Shoreview down the west side of Little Canada at a cost of nearly $2 million, funded by the state. Safety improvements like crossing arms will be installed at the crossings, making it no longer a requirement for crossing trains to use their horns. From the top marked by dots, crossings will be improved at North Owasso Boulevard, Jerrold Avenue, Woodlyn Avenue, South Owasso Boulevard, Little Canada Road, Demont Avenue, County Road B2 and County Road B.

Railroad should complete work by early 2016
Almost a year after the Minnesota Legislature set aside nearly $2 million intended to lessen the noise at railroad crossings in Little Canada and Shoreview, deals are in place to move forward with railroad quiet zone plans.
Little Canada approved deals with the state and the railroad at its May 11 rescheduled meeting, following the lead of the Shoreview City Council at its May 4 meeting.
At its May 12 school board meeting, the Roseville Area School District sighed a figurative breath of relief as the board approved a contract with their chosen finalist for a new superintendent, following a six-month-long search.
