Jesse Griffin, left, and Jon Bohlinger, right, who have been friends for 15 years, hope to open Gentleman Scholar Distillery in Lauderdale by the end of the summer. The distillery is home to two 26-gallon stills, pictured above. (Johanna Holub/Review)

Consider this the “before” picture. From the outside, Gentleman Scholar Distillery doesn’t look like much, but give it a few months - and a federal operating permit - and its true potential will become crystal clear. (Johanna Holub/Review)

The bottle that will hold Gentleman Scholar’s craft vodka and gin is square and will be hand-stamped with a batch number. The label was designed by Savage-based StepStoneGroup, Inc., which is owned by Kevin Burkart, a third-part investor in Gentleman Scholar. (Johanna Holub/Review)

Roseville author wins Midwest Book Award


Roseville author Mary Clare Lockman recently won a Midwest Book Award in the young adult fiction category for her 2013 novel, “They’re Always With You.”

“They’re Always With You” is Lockman’s third publication. The book, which is set in Red Wing, Minn., in 1970, opens a window into a young girl’s life as she unravels her family’s secrets.

A decade ago, a one-page writing assignment inspired a student to write a book. The student spent years gathering information, writing, rewriting and editing pages into a 200-page book, finally publishing it last year.
