Young company faces big hurdles


On behalf of their New Brighton-based company and many interested in their idea, Jesse Lammi and John Louiselle, both 24, helped draft a bill in the Legislature that would make it easier for tiny homes to be utilized as temporary dwelling spaces for the elderly, injured and disabled and located near the homes of their loved ones.

New children’s book focuses on St. Anthony history


Gail Olson’s new children’s book tells the tale of St. Anthony Village’s history and features illustrations by St. Anthony Village High School art instructor Sarah Gunderson.

Accompanying bus tour up for discussion

Historical records show that St. Anthony Village was once home to more livestock than humans. 

After digging through archives at the St. Anthony Village Historical Society, that tidbit stuck out to local author Gail Olson and inspired the title of her new book, “More Pigs Than People!” 

Olson, a Columbia Heights resident, has worked with the historical society in recent years as a commissioned author, writing books centered on St. Anthony’s history. 

This is her third book about the small suburb, but her first for children, complete with colorful illustrations by St. Anthony Village High School studio art instructor Sarah Gunderson.

Police ask for help identifying woman 

A woman who was found dead in New Brighton 15 years ago has never been identified, but now the image of her face has reemerged through facial reconstruction technologies, and though it’s only a likeness, police are hoping it will lead to new information in the cold case. 

The investigation of the woman’s death began in the fall of 2000, when her body was found by two hikers just off a little-used path in Long Lake Regional Park. Police believe the corpse had been lying there for at least two months by the time it was found Sept. 15.

The New Brighton Department of Public Safety requested assistance from the FBI last year, specifically to have them reassemble characteristics of the woman’s face using facial reconstruction. The image was released to the public last week.
