Parks and Rec to install archery range

Funds come from DNR grant
After winning a $10,000 grant from the Department of Natural Resources, St. Paul Parks and Recreation will look to put in an archery range at Pigs Eye Park, just down the hill from Dayton’s Bluff.
Eric Thompson, former East Side director for Parks and Rec who still works for the department as a certified park and recreation professional, said the initiative to get archery resources in St. Paul came from a meeting in St. Paul City Council member Russ Stark’s office, back in the spring.

Carolers sent from across the country
The scene: following a fresh sprinkling of snow, 14 young carolers from Edgerton Elementary School file into Cecilia Gresback’s living room, filling her Maplewood home with song and good tidings. The 97-year-old rocks her chair back and forth and claps her hands, keeping tempo with the carolers as they sing “Holly Jolly Christmas” with a keyboard accompaniment.
Her daughter, Rita Shor, sitting by her side, can hardly keep her eyes dry.
