Von Maur to open second Minnesota location at mall

A decade after the last expansion of Roseville’s Rosedale Center, plans for another are moving along, now with a new wrinkle: The mall’s latest anchor tenant has been named.

According to a March 2 release, Iowa-based department store Von Maur will fill the 141,000-square foot addition to the mall that the Roseville City Council approved last year. 

The expansion will fill in what’s currently surface parking, between JCPenney and the AMC Theaters on the northeastern side of the mall.

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.

Local 15-year death investigation rekindled by reconstruction of victim’s face

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.

Precinct party caucuses are a week away

Parties prepare for Super Tuesday

Precinct party caucuses are a week away on March 1 — Super Tuesday — when voters in Minnesota and 12 other states will caucus for presidential candidates, among other party business.

The events, which begin at 7 p.m., are run completely by state political parties and deal with internal party business so caucus rules and happenings will vary, district by district.

Roseville Review area Republicans and DFLers who plan to caucus likely live in either House District 42B or 66A; officials in both parties are expecting lots of caucus participation during this presidential election year.

Mounds View puts an end to the trash talk

On any given Mounds View street all four city-licensed trash-hauling companies can be seen represented by their garbage bins awaiting pick-up. The City Council has decided not to pursue looking into organized collection, which would essentially reduce the number of garbage trucks on individual residential streets to one truck, while dividing and designating geographical sections of the city to the hauling companies.
