Marie Oftelie wasn't really looking for something to do last May when she stopped by the Lyngblomsten volunteer display at Roseville City Hall after a talk sponsored by the Roseville ACT on Alzheimer's project.
But her sister-in-law had just moved to Lyngblomsten care center in St. Paul because of memory issues, and she was intrigued by the idea of helping out at one of the day programs staffed by volunteers for people with memory loss that Lyngblomsten supervises at nine Twin Cities area churches.

Ordinance would include e-cigarettes with Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act
At the recent Ramsey County Board public hearing on an ordinance that would ban the indoor use of e-cigarettes in the county where smoking is already prohibited, speakers were 8-0 in favor of the ban.
The Sept. 8 board meeting was the second reading of the draft ordinance that would group e-cigarettes, the use of which is commonly called vaping, with other smoked tobacco products that are regulated under the Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act.
