Jane Prince helps broker deal
In her first week on the job, Ward 7's new council person, Jane Prince, has already helped cut a deal to give six properties in Dayton's Bluff's historic district a fighting chance.
The solution, she said, was simple: get the interested parties together for an in-person discussion.

Exploring Oregon’s ring of fire — Mount St. Helens & Crater Lake
When Mount St. Helens in Washington exploded in 1980, the world watched on TV and saw lava and steam pouring out from the northern slope of the mountain.

The proposed Red Rock Corridor bus rapid transit line would connect southwest suburbs as far out as Hastings to St. Paul. The route would link up with the Gateway Corridor’s stops in Dayton’s Bluff before continuing on into downtown St. Paul. (submitted graphic)
East Side stops added to plan
East Side residents could one day use a bus rapid transit line to go to jobs in Cottage Grove.
By the same route, southwest suburbanites from Newport all the way down to Hastings could easily travel into the East Side to visit restaurants or go to school at Metropolitan State University, or commute to work in downtown St. Paul. And from there, they could link up with other transit lines such as the Green Line light rail route between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
