Last week a story about the March 1 caucuses was accompanied by a box titled "If you go ..." that incorrectly listed the cities in the Bulletin coverage area for state House Districts 42A and 42B. The Bulletin regrets the errors.

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.

Suzy Tomlinson's bear books address 'troubles' younger kids encounter
Teddy isn't just a teddy bear, at least not in a local author's recent book series.
Sure, he's a little stuffed animal who talks, but Suzy Tomlinson of Shoreview created this bow-tied bear and his friend David, a little boy, in part to portray her relationship with her brother, David Dobis, who died of stomach cancer in 2002 at the age of 53.
Mayor honors the creators of giant octopus
It's been six years since New Brighton has seen a new face in the mayoral seat, but at its first city council meeting of the year, a new mayor was sworn in.
First-time candidate Val Johnson won the mayoral seat with 39.36 percent of the vote, for a total of 1,143 votes, winning the race over incumbent mayor Dave Jacobsen and current council member Gina Bauman back in November.
