BEAR’LY OPEN: Founder of fundraiser retires from board PAGE 3A
Chamber leadership transitions with familiar faces in Anoka County before landing the position in his hometown. The White Bear Area Chamber has over 400 members from 12 surrounding municipalities, said Wilson. That is many more members than there were before Snell took the lead; members tend to stick around when they see the value of the chamber, she added. “Tom worked hard,” she said. “It has grown ... it continues to each year.” Snell said he has planned interesting chamber events and meetings, discussing such topics as a

Tom Snell, executive director of the White Bear Area Chamber of Commerce, will step down from his role in March and Shari Wilson, current director of marketing and member relations, will take the helm. Snell has led the chamber for almost nine years. A 1968 White Bear Lake alum, he has lived in White Bear Township most of his life. His career took a path to White Bear chamber after he started selling chamber memberships in the western suburbs. He eventually became director of the Metro North Chamber

ST. PAUL — As the state Supreme Court considers whether claims against the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) were brought under the correct statute in the lake level lawsuit, plaintiffs in the eight-year-old case say there is a positive outcome regardless of the decision. “Because of our action, the DNR is finally paying attention to managing its (water appropriation) permits,” said Greg McNeely, chair of the White Bear Lake Restoration Association, which sued the DNR in 2012 for mismanaging permits, blaming the agency for historic low lake levels. “Win or lose, I believe our efforts have brought awareness of water conservation to the table,” McNeely added. The state’s high court heard oral arguments Jan. 6 from the restoration association’s lead attorney, Katie Crosby Lehmann, and lake homeowner’s association attorney Byron Starns. The homeowners joined the plaintiffs early on as an intervenor. The DNR was represented by Oliver Larson with the attorney general’s office. Attorneys for
the city of White Bear Lake and White Bear Township, defendant intervenors, did not speak. Plaintiffs based assertions of DNR mismanagement under the Minnesota Environmental Rights Act (MERA), Minnesota Statute 116B.01 to .13. They theorized that the agency inappropriately issued permits for groundwater extraction that caused decreased water levels on White Bear Lake, which harmed the lake’s value as a recreational and aesthetic asset. The homeowner’s association asserted claims both under MERA and the common-law public trust doctrine. Both groups sought an order requiring the DNR to amend groundwater appropriation permits in municipalities within a 5-mile radius of the lake. The DNR challenged the claims, arguing they were not properly asserted under Statute 116B.03, under which the plaintiffs brought their claims, but instead fall under Statute 116B.10, which does not provide for injunctive relief. After a bench trial, the district court found in favor of

Food shelf celebrates years of service, founder of Bear’ly Open For more than 15 years, Ken Galloway has been actively involved with the White Bear Area Food Shelf. He started as a donor, then contributed time as a volunteer. For the past nine years, he has served as a member of the board of directors. He will step down from the board this month. "I've been connected to food my entire career — fi rst as a chef, then in hospitality, " said Ken. "So, as I looked for ways to help out in the community, the food shelf was the obvious place." “Very transformational” is the way Ken describes the changes at the food shelf over the past decade. As a member of the building committee during the renovation, he saw growth in size; he also saw a huge expansion in the services offered, which included the current choice-model shopping. He feels the welcoming and respectful culture is vital for the future of the food shelf. “Ken has been a great resource as the board has evolved over the past few years, providing excellent perspective and insights,” said Board
Chair Scott McCune. “I especially enjoy his ability to connect with different resources in the community in a very low-key, comfortable manner. Ken’s passion for helping SUBMITTED others quick- Ken Galloway has served ly become at the White Bear Area apparent Food Shelf for 15 years. He during any helped launch the Bear’ly conversaOpen – Golf on Ice fundtion.” raiser. Ken will become the fi rst emeritus board member as he ends his third term of service at the end of January. One of Ken’s most satisfying accomplishments during his tenure at the food shelf is founding the Bear’ly Open – Golf on Ice event. The winter fun takes place this year Jan. 31-Feb. 1.
Ken was fi rst exposed to the idea of a golf event on ice as a member of t the Wayzata Rotary. He brought up t the idea when he transferred to the W White Bear Lake Rotary. The club w challenged to come up with a was n new community-focused event with a charitable endeavor connected to it. “I promoted the White Bear Area Food Shelf as the benefactor, because that’s where my heart was,” K said. He has been amazed by Ken h how the community has embraced t the event and enjoys that his kids have made it a family tradition since the fi rst year. “The Bea'rly Open is not only a fun and unique winter event but a great example of the White Bear area community coming together to make a substantial impact for neighbors in need,” said Executive Director Perry Petersen. “Ken’s leadership with the Bearly Open event and the board of the White Bear Area Food Shelf has been instrumental in seeing the food shelf grow to helping 1,200 families any given month in 2019.”

Homes or commercial
s our communities change, grow and develop, some of our towns are maxed out, land-locked, and have limited opportunities for new development. Others such as Lino Lakes, Hugo, Centerville and the surrounding areas have an abundance of open space for development and are building out neighborhoods, industrial parks and retail areas. I attended the Vadnais Heights City Council meeting last week, where a presentation was made to change the land use of a 13-acre parcel at McMenemy Road and Highway 96 from commercial to mixed use. It is a required step before rezoning. The buyer of the land would like to build a combination of townhomes and apartments. The council chamber was packed with residents opposed to the change in zoning, citing concerns about safety and the increased noise and trafﬁc Publisher’s the townhomes and apartments might bring to the neighborhood. View As I drove home, I began to think Carter Johnson about how I would react if this project was being proposed in my neighborhood. While I do not live in Vadnais Heights, my family is in a neighboring community and I have a vested interest in the socioeconomic impact of communities in the region where I live and operate a business. We care about the future of the northeast metro communities. Our reporters have sat in countless meetings over the years and have seen some great, mediocre and really bad decisions made. I actually lost a little sleep over it. Why are the neighbors so against this change in the zoning and allowing the developer to build? I understand the pain of additional trafﬁc, and I know that area already has a trafﬁc problem. However, consider other potential issues with that land being zoned commercial. If a single or multiple manufacturer built on this land, like an injection plastic molding company, or a metal plating company that runs three shifts, it would cause signiﬁcant trafﬁc 24 hours a day, along with the sights, sounds and smells of a factory – with possible risks such as emiting hazardous waste. Or, this commercial property could be the next site for another hotel in Vadnais Heights. I’m not opposed to businesses having a right to build where they can buy land, but it would seem industrial facilities or a hotel would have signiﬁcantly more late night and early morning trafﬁc. The perception of local residents about the drawbacks of this proposal may be far worse than the reality. Additionally, a little background on the developer, At Home Apartments, will show it has had success building and owning high-end, high-density housing in other communities such as Minnetonka, Mendota Heights — and closer to home — The Boatworks Commons located in White Bear Lake off of Highway 61. A few years ago, that was highly controversial. While I’m not sure they got everything right with the design of the building (especially small balconies facing the lake, or none at all), overall it has been a huge improvement to what was a blighted property on the lake. The people who live there have great things to say about it. The nearby businesses appreciate it, and I believe it has helped improve that entire stretch along the lake. I imagine many people who were initially opposed to that apartment building now think it was a pretty good idea. Some even reside there, or might like to. The bottom line is, this land is up for sale and the land owner has a right to sell it. I’m shocking myself by saying this, but I believe At Home Apartments is an outstanding ﬁt. As it is currently zoned, there is potential for a business, or multiple businesses, to come in. It’s a ﬂip of a coin whether commercial development will drag down property values of the neighborhood. A residential housing complex is perhaps more likely to have a positive socioeconomic impact, as well as to enhance the look, feel, and charm of the community of Vadnais Heights. It was impressive to see the turnout of residents at the City Council meeting, and they have valid concerns. We all have a tendency to claim open land as our own. Development is difﬁcult and it’s great to see the engagement of citizens and careful process of our city leaders to make the right decision for all. God bless our leaders, communities and the people involved. Carter Johnson is publisher of Press Publications.

This year let’s stop TCE from harming another community
ou’ve likely heard about the Trichloroethylene (TCE) emissions concerning the local business Water Gremlin. TCE is a volatile organic compound that is a known carcinogen and is associated with kidney cancer, liver cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as other health effects. While Water Gremlin had been using TCE legally to manufacture Movers & its products (lead battery Shakers terminals and lead Keely Cervantes ﬁshing sinkers), state regulators discovered the company was violating its state air emissions permit by venting TCE at high enough levels to threaten human health up to 1.5 miles around facility in Movers & the White Bear Lake Township. This Shakers violation had been Nels Paulsen happening since at least 2009 due to a failing carbon absorber used to clean air emissions, and the long-term implications to human health are yet to be known
in the surrounding communities. These unfortunate events led to something remarkable at the state legislature in 2019—a bipartisan effort to ban TCE in Minnesota. During the 2019 state legislative session, both the Minnesota House and Senate voted to phase out and ban TCE (with some ﬂexibility built in for speciﬁc, carefully regulated uses). The efforts were led by Representative Amy Wazlawik (DFL-38B) and Senator Roger Chamberlain (R-SD 38), an important show of work across the aisle. Though the bills and the ban ultimately failed to make it through a conference committee at the end of the legislative session, a larger conversation of how to pass a statewide ban of TCE will likely be back on the table in the 2020 session. There are already safer alternatives to TCE, and Minnesota has the ability and the responsibility to act now—especially in light of what we’ve seen happen in the White Bear area. TCE continues to be used by manufacturers across Minnesota. In addition to air emission releases like the Water Gremlin problem, TCE can leak into groundwater supplies and a number of Minnesota communities have already been forced to take action to protect their drinking water. A bipartisan effort to ban TCE would continue to emphasize Minnesota’s commitment to getting harmful chemicals out of
our society and making all of our communities safer. We can prevent another community from being harmed by TCE, and this legislative session we should make it so. It is imperative we as Minnesotans come together to protect our families, our neighbors, and our environment. At Conservation Minnesota, we are working with your elected ofﬁcials to ban TCE in the 2020 legislative session and prioritize a safer future for Minnesota’s communities. The issue may have started in White Bear Lake, but pollution does not have borders and our air and water are affected every day by this chemical. It’s important to contact your legislators about this issue as the new year begins and we look forward to a successful 2020 legislative session. Help us protect the Minnesota we all love.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Apathetic women with a sole purpose? With the change of one repeating word in this quote and its longer version, I could not have said it better ... “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke, 1770. That’s the short version. A longer version reads as follows, same author. “Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel, and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each other’s principles, nor experienced in each other’s talents, nor at all practised in their mutual habitudes and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not infl amed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can fl atter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavours, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” –Edmund Burke Quote below is by the same person: “Woman is not made to be the admiration of all, but the happiness of one.” Edmund Burke It’s as true today as it was 200 years ago — except for now, in modern times, the sin of giving into political apathy would be extended to women, too. In my humble opinion, this — taken literally — is where we are in the U.S. today. Humans come in two genders for a purpose. For many reasons, neither should rule. Another quote, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Golden Rule ... practice it. Jan Carlson White Bear Lake
About global warming It looks like the city and citizens of River Falls, Wisconsin (population 15,000 and 36 miles from White Bear Lake), are doing something about “global warming.” Starting small seems to be one answer. Gary Zweig White Bear Lake
Regarding the bike trail North Branch, Stacy, Wyoming, Forest Lake, Hugo, Stillwater, Maplewood, North St. Paul: What do these towns have in common? A bike path that connects them to the 4,000 miles of bike trails running throughout Minnesota. What small town in
this region doesn’t have such a connection? White Bear Lake. Why does the city choose to cut itself off from the bike trail? Are its citizens, city planners and business owners so averse to the progressive, environmental and recreational movement of biking that the rest of the state is known for, that it intentionally shuns the idea of moving bikers through its downtown? I don’t believe that can be true. The citizens who live here burst with pride in bragging about White Bear Lake’s downtown. The construction of a four-lane highway through this adorable downtown always seemed counter-intuitive to me, as it rushes car drivers past the businesses that make the city attractive. But one positive outcome to the behemoth of traffic running through the downtown would be to accommodate a bike path on one side, and there is room if the city wanted it, which I have to believe it does, for what city does not want to attract visitors of all kinds? It takes creative vision and a positive, bold attitude to rectify former decisions that excluded a bike path through the downtown. Navigating bicyclists from areas around the metro region into our residential neighborhoods, which is a plan on the table, makes no sense whatsoever. I have lived in a town in which millions were spent on such a roundabout path, and no one uses it. Bicyclists still ride on the direct and more hazardous street to reach the downtown faster, because that is the more natural path to take. Bike racers want to stop for a beer or lemonade, but only if they can see the beer garden or pop shop. Why cut White Bear Lake off from what our great Minnesota is known for around the country: 4,000 miles of trails and some of the best bicycling in the nation? Jim Muellner White Bear Lake
Not all voices are represented by East Goose Lake Homeowner Association We have lived on East Goose Lake for 25 years but had no knowledge of a homeowner association until I recently read about it in the Press. I do not think that any of our seven nearest neighbors are aware of its existence, either. Thus, our voices regarding the treatment of our lake have not been represented. Plus, the number of homeowners on the lake (quoted as 19 by the association in the article) is short by at least eight more houses. I am further puzzled as to how some who live on the lake were aware of public meetings regarding a possible treatment of the lake. If a mailing was sent out, to my knowledge none of us were notified. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed living on the lake. The view is wonderful. But having heard about the lake’s pollution years ago, we never dared to put a toe in the water. Throughout our decades of living here, we have observed very little activity on the lake, which is not surprising, having smelled and seen the lake’s poor quality. Even the wildlife seems to have diminished. Now reading in the Press that this is the sickest, most impaired lake in the entire watershed, we are extremely grateful that VLAWMO is making efforts to improve the quality of the lake. It seems all the more imperative to do so, learning that our
lake is the headwaters for Lambert Creek and Vadnais Lake, which is the source of St. Paul’s drinking water. That is a scary awakening. Improving the lake quality for the greater good seems the only logical option. The health of the lake is at stake and everyone throughout the watershed will benefit. The funding may not remain available for long. If we don’t take advantage of it, it will get diverted to another “sick” lake in about a nanosecond. Thank you, VLAWMO, for your research, knowledge and commitment to come to an agreeable solution to best improve our beloved little lake. The benefit it will have for all of us and future generations cannot be measured or overstated. Dennis and Page Stevens White Bear Lake
Facts are facts Recent letters stated there’s no scientific consensus on humans causing climate change. They couldn’t be more wrong. The official position of the 13,000-member American Meteorological Society states that humans are a primary cause of global warming. Same thing for the Canadian, Australian and British Royal meteorological societies. The 60,000-member American Geophysical Union is the main U.S. professional organization for earth science, including climatologists, oceanographers, atmospheric scientists and geologists. Their official positions state without doubt that humans are the primary driver of our current climate change, that we should act now to reduce the economic and societal damage, and that the costs of inaction are greater than the costs of reducing greenhouse gasses. Folks are free to not believe the professional societies that develop and apply our knowledge about climate, but that is akin to not believing the American Medical Association when it says that smoking causes cancer. Citing a single scientist shows a common misconception about science. There are always alternative hypotheses in science, and failed ones are discarded on the anvil of observation. We arrive at a general scientific consensus through thousands of studies, testing alternate explanations. Some scientists cling to pet theories long after they’ve been proven wrong by the mass of evidence. Why believe them, when they can’t even convince their thousands of scientific peers? The writers also trot out statements by the thoroughly discredited “Lord” Monckton, an apologist for fossil fuels industries. Much like the tobacco companies before them, energy companies have an economic interest in the status quo, even though it will cost the rest of us in the long run. Their paid, nonscientist shills make up data, cherry-pick results and magnify uncertainty, all to sow confusion. Fact is, meteorological, climate and earth scientists have stated their consensus view that humans are a primary cause of climate change. Rather than believing armchair experts who’ve read a few op-ed pieces, shouldn’t we believe the official position of the scientific societies? Our kids and grandkids will pay for our folly of ignoring science. Paul Bolstad White Bear Lake

WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF’S REPORTS The Washington County Sheriff's Offi ce reported the following selected incidents in Birchwood, Dellwood, Grant, Mahtomedi, Pine Springs and Willernie:
Dellwood • A resident on Augusta Lane on Dec. 10 reported receiving an email stating the party had possession of the complainant's Facebook information and password, along with access to his computer webcam. The email writer threatened to leak a video of the complainant if he didn't pay $1,899 worth of Bitcoin. Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies advised the complainant of the scam and to change his password, delete the email and block the email address.
Grant • A resident in the 11000 block of Irish Avenue N. on Dec. 10 reported receiving a phone call from two different numbers with a prerecorded message saying there was legal action against him and to stay on the line to take care of the legal matter. The complainant hung up on the caller, knowing it was a scam. Deputies advised the complainant to block the number. • A female motorist was cited Dec. 11 on northbound Manning Avenue N. at 75th Street N. for cell phone hands-free violation, after deputies waiting alongside her at the red light observed her talking on a cell phone held in front of her face. When deputies explained that she could not use the hand-held phone while driving, the motorist said she knew that and was about to hang up. She was also verbally warned for the incorrect address on her driver's license.
Mahtomedi • A suspicious vehicle slowly driving around the neighborhood of Ridge Way on Dec. 10, stopping to let out four adults to go around from house to house, turned out to be religious people out knocking on doors. The video the complainant took of the suspicious activity showed two elderly adults who were dressed very nicely and knocking politely on doors before moving on. • A light pole on Long Lake Road was reported knocked over by a vehicle Dec. 10. Pieces of the vehicle were left on the scene. Mahtomedi Public Works was called out to inspect the light pole.

RAMSEY COUNTY SHERIFF’S REPORTS • A resident of Warner Avenue S. reported receiving a voicemail Dec. 10 claiming to be from the Washington County Sheriff's Office and that she was being investigated for harassing phone calls. Deputies advised the complainant that the number did not come from the WCSO and called the number. The woman who answered said she did not make the call and that the person who had been calling and bothering her was probably the one who spoofed her number to make the scam phone calls.
The Ramsey County Sheriff's Offi ce reported the following incidents:
• A mysterious camoufl age backpack was reported found Dec. 10 next to a fence in the 900 block of Wildwood Road. Deputies said the backpack looked like it had been thrown over the fence from next door and took possession of it for safekeeping. Two hours later, deputies were dispatched to the property next door to check out a suspicious male seen walking behind the property. The male was not seen taking or damaging anything.
• Employees at Chipotle Mexican Grill in the 900 block of County Road E on Jan. 2 reported theft from their restaurant.
• The manager of the Holiday station on Stillwater Road on Dec. 12 reported the driver of a red Impala for covering up his license plates and driving away from a $26.15 tab. Fortunately, the plates weren't covered all the way up, because the manager retrieved part of the number. Deputies were able to look up the registered owner from Oakdale but were unable to make contact.
• Two vehicles were reported broken into at 3:30 a.m. Jan. 4 in the 3200 block of Moray Avenue after a car alarm went off. A neighbor heard the alarm, looked outside and saw a light-colored SUV without lights driving down the street and the complainant's car door open. A purse with wallet and credit cards was taken from one vehicle, and gift cards were taken from the other vehicle. A wallet and driver's license were recovered in the neighborhood later that day. The purse and credit cards remained missing.
• An unidentified woman was cited at 10:49 a.m. Dec. 12 on Dartmoor Road for disorderly conduct after she yelled a vulgarity at the complainant that morning. The subject denied everything and slammed the door in deputies' faces when they tried to serve the citation. Deputies left the citation between the door and storm door before retreating. • Approximately $7,000 in tools were reported stolen Dec. 13 from a business on Long Lake Road. The complainant had suspect information to aid in the investigation.
Pine Springs • An unidentified male was cited at 11:44 p.m. Dec. 13 on Hilton Trail N. and 66th Street N. for driving after suspension after deputies on routine patrol ran his license number, which showed his license suspension. The driver had to park the vehicle and call for a ride.

• A St. Paul woman, 27, was arrested at 10:12 p.m. Jan. 4 in the Panera Bread parking lot in the 900 block of County Road E for second-degree DWI after her husband reported her for driving drunk and for refusing to let him into their vehicle. When deputies arrived on the scene, they noted a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage when the subject rolled down her window to them. Deputies also noted her bloodshot, watery eyes and slurred speech. After she admitted to consuming alcohol, deputies spotted an open container of "White Claw" in the center console. The subject failed the horizontal gaze nystagmus field sobriety test, which measures involuntary jerking of the eyeballs, and refused to participate in three other intoxication assessments. At the time of the arrest, the subject's toddler was present in the back seat of the vehicle.

Human remains from 1982 identiďŹ ed as White Bear Lake man The remains of a White Bear Lake man missing since 1982 have been identified in Wisconsin. Kraig King's decomposed remains were identified by the Barron County Sheriffâ€™s Department with the assistance of the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation and DNA Doe Project. On Sept. 21, 1982, loggers found a pile of clothes in the woods on private land about 100 yards from the tree line near Highway 25 about 4 miles north of Ridgeland, Barron County, according to a Jan. 7 press release from the sheriff's department. Upon closer inspection, they discovered it was actually badly decomposed human remains. After conducting an autopsy, a pathologist reported the deceased was a white male, between 18 and 22 years old, weighing 180 to 195 pounds and was between 5 feet, 8
inches and 5 feet, 9 inches tall. The subject had brown hair and a husky build. It is estimated time of death was April to May 1982 and the manner of death was Kraig King in 1979 1979. homicide. King had been stabbed in the chest. The 1979 White Bear Lake High School grad suffered from mental illness, said his parents Judy and Paul King. They don't know how or why their son was in western Wisconsin, but they knew he didn't have a car and he was carrying a couple
thousand dollars when he was last seen. "Kraig was so well liked," said his father Paul, a retired physical education teacher in the district. "He was a hockey and golf athlete and an excellent student. He was very personable. He must have talked to the wrong people." Learning the details of their son's death has been painful, say the Kings, but friends have gathered around the couple to offer comfort. They are longtime members of St. Mary of the Lake Church, where a memorial Mass will be held once the remains are released to the family. The Barron County Sheriffâ€™s Department is seeking the publicâ€™s help as the investigation of Kingâ€™s homicide continues. Anyone with information on why the victim would have been in Barron County in 1982, or any knowledge of this
case, should contact the Barron County Sheriffâ€™s Department at 715537-3106. The DNA Doe Project, which was key to the identification, is a nonprofit volunteer organization that uses forensic genealogy to identify unidentified deceased persons. The Kings said a niece had her genealogy tested and agreed to have results added to a database. A close DNA match to the John Doe remains in Wisconsin alerted the organization to the family. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said the DNA Doe Project also wanted to acknowledge the assistance of DNA Solutions, Hudson Alpha Discovery, Justin Loe â€“ Full Genomes Corporation, Dr. Greg Magoon â€“ Aerodyne Research Corporation, and GEDmatch.

Legislators urge action in White Bear Lake massage parlor Water Gremlin investigation owner convicted for sex trafficking ST. PAUL â€” In a Jan. 9 letter to Legislative Auditor Jim Nobles, Rep. Ami Wazlawik (DFL â€“ 38B), Rep. Peter Fischer (DFL â€“ 43A), and Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn (DFL â€“ 42B) asked the status of the special investigation on Water Gremlin. Noble's office indicated last September it planned to investigate environmental violations by the township company. â€œOur community deserves to know what happened at the Water Gremlin facility. Our goal is not to point fi ngers, but to fi nd answers for residents and Water Gremlin employees who have lived in fear and uncertainty for many months, and information that will help us work collectively to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again," the legislators wrote. "We will continue working with community members and local and state officials to protect the health and well-being of Minnesotans.â€? The three representatives reminded Noble that state officials discovered the manufacturer emitted high levels of the carcinogenic chemical trichloroethylene (TCE) for more than a decade, violating the terms of its air quality permit. A few months later, investigators found TCE and other toxic chemicals in air, water and soil on the property.
WHITE BEAR LAKE â€” A Washington County jury took less than an hour to convict Shuxin Lan, 52, of White Bear Lake, on multiple sex trafficking related charges. The jury also found that Lanâ€™s illegal operation resulted in multiple victims. The sex trafficking convictions stem from a several month investigation conducted in 2018 by the East Metro Sex Trafficking Task Force (EMSTTF). The EMSTTF includes members from the Woodbury Department of Public Safety, Oakdale Police Department, Washington County Sheriffâ€™s Office and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations. The case was tried before the Honorable Richard Ilkka. The case was prosecuted by the director of the EMSTTF, Imran Ali. According to the complaint, members of the EMSTTF initiated a proactive investigation into a commercial sex operation that was occurring at a massage parlor located in Woodbury. During this investigation, it was discovered that Lan also owned a massage parlor in White Bear Lake. â€œThe fact that this brothel was active in two cities, in bustling shopping centers open to the public, and in broad daylight is a testament of what these traffickers will do for money,â€?stated County Attorney Pete Orput. â€œOur office will continue to aggressively prosecute these cases to achieve justice for the victims with no voice.â€? On Sept. 11 of 2018, members of the EMSTTF served search warrants at both locations. There, law enforcement found copious amounts of evidence relating to prostitution and recovered several victims at both locations. â€œThere is no question that these illegal businesses would continue to be operational today if law enforcement had not intervened,â€? stated Washington County Sheriff Dan Starry. â€œThe partnerships with other law enforcement agencies and the county attorney has been instrumental in tackling this epidemic.â€?

Residents not at home with At Home BY DEBRA NEUTKENS STAFF WRITER
VADNAIS HEIGHTS — Judging by the number of residents who spoke in opposition to a proposed multifamily housing project on the corner of County Highway 96 and McMenemy Street, support appears to be lacking. City Council heard one neighbor after another request denial of a concept plan proposed by At Home Apartments LLC, the same company that owns and manages Boatworks Commons in White Bear Lake. The company wants to build 77 two-story townhomes and a 91-unit, four-story apartment building on a 13.9-acre parcel currently owned by IC System. The development requires a Comprehensive Plan amendment to change land use from office/ business to mixed. The change would be consistent with the city's 2040 land use plan and supports housing goals, noted Community Development Director Nolan Wall. In his presentation to council, Wall said the project would bring new housing units to the community and put underutilized property on the tax rolls. Wall reminded council the city does not have the authority to regulate whether a property should be a specific use: for example, senior housing versus market-rate apartment, or the type of occupancy, rental versus owner, if the development is compliant with the Comprehensive Plan and zoning code. The city does have the right to deny the requests. Rezoning would follow once land use is changed. Those opposed to the project mostly had issues with traffic. Oakwood Terrace homeowner Jin Baik said he lives closest to the development. "I'm worried about traffic. I've had many close calls," he told council. According to the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office, there have been 15 accidents at the intersection of Highway 96 and McMenemy in the last five years and one at Oak Grove Parkway and McMenemy. The city's consulting engineer, SEH, reviewed trip estimates provided in the applicant's submittal, and also analyzed the potential trip generation for an office/warehouse use on the property. The analysis showed estimates similar to the applicant's study. SEH showed a total of 928 trips if an office/warehouse occupied the site and 1,060 trips if multifamily housing was constructed. Traffic data from the applicant showed 1,690 daily trips to and from an office, compared to 1,112 by residents of the units. At the public hearing, Nicole Roy called the calculations underinflated. When she bought her house on Foothill Terrace five years ago, Roy said she looked closely at zoning to make sure her neighborhood would remain quiet and doesn't want to see it change. Tim Ewald echoed her thoughts on the traffic data. "It seems very low," he said, adding a transient population could impact his property values. Resident Chris Messerly, Timberline Trail, urged council to deny the application, noting safety issues. According to Messerly, an attorney, the plan has insufficient sight lines and is likely not allowed under traffic laws. "The only exit for my

entire neighborhood is McMenemy," he pointed out. "Increased congestion means increased traffic concerns. This doesn't belong here." A representative from IC System, John Erickson, told council his company purchased the lot in question 38 years ago when they relocated from Arden Hills. "It was for expansion of our business, but proved too grandiose," he said. Since there is "no good reason" to hold the land, it was listed in 2018. "We've been approached occasionally," Erickson recalled. Walgreen's backed out, Lifetime Fitness showed interest. A hockey rink was proposed at one point. There have been four offers: all residential. One proposal was for 300-plus apartment units. The company liked At Home's plan, Erickson said. "They put up nice projects. It's a 30-year-old family business, and we like them. It struck the right balance and would be a good addition for the city. Vadnais Heights would be lucky to have them." At Home principals also attended the meeting to answer questions. Their architect emphasized the quality of the luxury units, noting they use "highend condo fi nishes in a rental unit." Their target market is empty nesters who rent by
choice, a trending lifestyle for baby boomers and millennials alike. Units would rent at market rate. A three-bedroom townhome, for example, would go for $2,500 per month. Asked what kind of income would be required to pay those rates, principal Alan Spaulding said a rule of thumb is income of three times the monthly rent. Spaulding emphasized that At Home is an apartment manager, not a developer. "Our motto is always buy, never sell," he said, to assure residents they are committed to the project. Those in the council chamber were also shown a promotional video by At Home featuring The Reserve at Mendota Heights, a resort-style apartment complex that features many upscale amenities. The complex has 139 units. Over half of its tenants are older than 50. The Planning Commission recommended denial of At Home's application 6-1 at its December meeting, noting the project did "not fit with the character of the surrounding area." Council tabled a decision until its Jan. 21 meeting. The application review period was also extended another 60 days.

LAWSUIT: ‘100 straws in the bathtub’ FROM PAGE 1A
the plaintiffs and issued injunctive relief imposing restrictions on the DNR’s groundwater permitting activities under and around the lake. A majority court of appeals panel reversed and remanded the district court to institute proceedings under section 116B.10. The appeals court concluded that section .10 provides the exclusive remedy under MERA when the challenged action is that of a state agency issuing a permit. The issues presented to the Supreme Court are whether appellants’ (plaintiffs) claims that the DNR improperly managed groundwater under the lake are governed by section 116B.03 or 116B.10 and whether the public trust doctrine extends to groundwater not directly beneath a navigable water. In her opening remarks, Crosby Lehmann, a partner with Ciresi-Conlin LLP called it “ironic” the case was tried in what former Gov. Mark Dayton called the year of water. “Minnesota holds water in high regard, as it should,” she said. “Yet trial showed there is a systemic level problem in how the DNR fulfills its statutory mandate as steward of our water.” The restoration association attorney noted that the Legislature passed laws providing “guard rails” for the DNR’s permitting activity and the “DNR blew by them. Then the court of appeals gave the DNR judicial immunity for its violations of law.” Crosby Lehmann said courts must be allowed to step in “when there is clear abdication of all responsibility and a complete failure by the executive branch to follow its legislative mandate to manage state waters and comply with environmental standards. Otherwise, the DNR is the accused, the prosecutor and the jury of its own conduct.” Chief Justice Lorie Gildea asked counsel to help them understand how the two statutory provisions work together. “Section .03 regulates conduct; .10 allows for change in the law or permit,” replied Crosby Lehmann. She added that Section .03 applies to all persons, including government agencies. Section .10 can’t change how the DNR behaves, maintained the attorney. “We can’t win under section .10. This case is about the DNR’s behavior in violating the law. They ignored the accumulative impact of all the permits. “This isn’t an issue about one straw in the bathtub,” Crosby Lehmann explained. “There are 100 straws in the bathtub. When we look one by one, we
don’t recognize the harm. Section .10 deals with permits one by one. Section .03 deals with the systemic level, the accumulative impact (of all the straws).” Justice Margaret Chutich voiced concern about interpreting section .03 too broadly, leading to more lawsuits in other cases involving agency permits. “What prevents open season on any permit given under any application, such as mining?” she asked. Crosby Lehmann said the case is unusual and about the DNR’s behavior in violating the law. The judge said the court may be undermining an administrative process set up years ago. Attorney Starns maintained that the DNR abdicated its responsibilities through an “absence of action.” Justice David Lillehaug said he wasn’t sure that was right. “The DNR knew what it was doing,” he said. “It was preferring pumping of groundwater versus protection of White Bear Lake. The DNR was making a choice.” Starns argued that the DNR was not acting prudently under its trust obligation. “The DNR knew its action was causing harm and did nothing. That is what the court found,” he said. DNR attorney Larson said the district court ordered the agency to amend its permits, dictating the terms of what the permits were going to be. “The DNR doesn’t deny permits impact White Bear Lake,” he told the court. “It makes sense to reopen some of the permits even if they don’t violate the law. There are more people, global warming, change in resource use; the permits need to be revisited. But the appropriate vehicle is under section .10. That is the better remedy for changing a permit.” Larson pointed out that 11 permits account for 90% of the influence on the lake, so “it doesn’t make sense to open all the permits.” The hearing took about 70 minutes. At its conclusion, the chief justice thanked counsel and said an opinion will be issued “in due course.” Township attorney Chad Lemmons felt both sides did a good job of presenting their case. “It was well argued. I wouldn’t go so far to say there was a clear winner or loser. The justices had a clear understanding of how the statute works. Is there a connection between section .03 and .10? In my opinion, there is not. They are mutually exclusive sections when it comes to permits.” If the court affirms the court of appeals decision, then it goes back to dis-

trict court for a new order, Lemmons said. If they don’t affirm, it goes back to the original order. Justices could also reverse just a portion and affirm a portion. All cities within the 5-mile radius received notices that permits are under review. That will go forward no matter what, Lemmons added. The hearing in the Capitol courtroom was a first for Crosby Lehmann. “It was an honor to argue before the state Supreme Court on a case that could impact sustainable water management not only in Minnesota, but across the country,” she said later. White Bear Lake Homeowner’s
Association President Jim Markoe expressed gratitude for the “extraordinary pro bono commitment” of the plaintiffs’ legal team. “I am gratified knowing that we have all worked to do everything possible to pursue solutions through the courts, Legislature and conservation education,” he commented. “We have worked conscientiously and persistently for eight years to educate people regarding the systemic problem of unsustainable high-volume groundwater pumping from the Prairie du Chien aquifer. This problem has been temporarily masked by two of the wettest years ever, but it is not gone.”

CHAMBER: New leader around 20 years humanoid robot at Century College and a Mars lander with high school students, to bring attention to the community. He hopes to bring more young, creative entrepreneurs to the White Bear Lake area to move it into the future. “That would be my parting shot,” he said. He'd like to see White Bear Lake and Vadnais Heights listed on national sites as one of the “best medium-sized communities for millennials to move,” he added. The chamber is currently working on a project to bring an automated vehicle to the area, which will also be an opportunity for college and high school students to learn about automation. One of the biggest projects Snell is most proud of over the last decade was advocating for a bonding bill for the rail line. It saved hundreds of jobs. “That would not have happened without the chamber,” Snell said. Snell will continue to work part-time for the time being. His focus will be on membership sales and legislative work. In his time off, he plans to spend more time with his grandchildren and on his hobbies — astronomy, playing guitar and following the New York Mets. Wilson will assume the leadership role at the chamber. For now, the chamber plans to stick with its three employees, including office manager Maureen Francis. Wilson has been on staff at the chamber four years but has been around for two decades. She joined the chamber in 1998 when she worked for Muller Family Theatres, now rebranded as Emagine White Bear. Through her career and chamber involvement, she learned the value of chambers for business networking and growth. “I truly believe in what it does and can do for your business,” she said. Wilson was on the White Bear Area chamber from 2001-2011 and was chair before she came on staff. She recently received training from the U.S. Chamber Institute of Organizational Management. “I'm excited to work with this community, and we have so many businesses coming into this town,” she said. The chamber is currently working on a new logo it expects to unveil soon.

1945 Fire was discovered in the Sunset Bowling alley Thursday at midnight when prompt response of firemen saved extensive damager or possible destruction. The fire was in a store room back of the pin-setters section in the extreme rear of the building, and was discovered by Keno Dybdal. As near as can be determined the origin of the fire was due to a cigarette being carelessly cast away, lodging behind several cartons of pins which were stored against the wall. The fire went up the wall and through the ceiling.

Carter is also active in the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC), where she previously served as its president, and is a member of the board of directors of the National Association of Counties (NACo).

Fairview, U of M brand together Several clinics in the area have undergone name changes due to a clinical agreement between University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Physicians and Fairview Health Services. The agreement was made in 2018; branding and name changes began at the end of 2019. HealthEast Clinic – Vadnais Heights is now officially M Health Fairview Clinic – Vadnais Heights, according to M Health Fairview Senior Communications Specialist Aimeé Jordan. St. John's Hospital in Maplewood is now M Health Fairview St. John’s Hospital and the nearby clinic is M Health Fairview Clinic – Maplewood. The Fairview Clinic in Lino Lakes is now M Health Fairview Clinic – Lino Lakes. HealthEast Clinic – Hugo's clinic name will change in the future. Branding is being rolled out on a gradual basis, Jordan explained. The M Health Fairview name is paired with an iconic symbol: The University of Minnesota’s block “M” and maroon and gold colors. The health care system began to brand hospitals and clinics with the M Health Fairview name in late 2019. M Health Fairview created the partnership to combine the best of academic and communi-
ty medicine, according to a press release. The partnership will provide access to world-class, breakthrough care at 10 hospitals and 60 clinics. The goal creates an easier, simpler health care experience for patients. Each service line organizes around specific health conditions rather than traditional boundaries, such as geographic areas or departments. Led by a single leadership structure pairing academic physicians with operations leaders, the service line approach translates health care innovations developed at the University of Minnesota into breakthrough care at the community level. M Health Fairview closely links the University of Minnesota Medical Center. “We have opportunity in Minnesota to transform how we deliver and experience health care,” said Jakub Tolar, MD, PhD, dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School and vice president for Academic Clinical Affairs. “The health system is a platform to deliver better care, more efficiently. We will leverage the advancements and discoveries of our researchers and physicians and bring them to people in the community on a large scale. This will positively impact the health of Minnesotans, bringing specialty care to
more neighborhoods, and strengthen our reputation as a national and global destination for care.” “A major goal of our collaboration is to reinvent health care by creating an easier, simpler experience,” said James Hereford, Fairview President and CEO. “By organizing care around health conditions rather than being constrained by traditional boundaries, we are simplifying the care experience and bringing top experts together for patients no matter where they see us, which could include a clinic, hospital, home, the workplace or via telemedicine.” M Health Fairview also plans to create a Health Transformation Center, which brings system challengers together to remove burden for patients and providers. Educational trips to NASA’s Johnson Space Center, FedEx and Southwest Airlines helped Fairview create its own “mission control,” which uses artificial intelligence to better manage patient traffic and reduce patients’ length of stay so they can return home faster. Telemedicine will also increasingly become part of the M Health Fairview experience to provide improved access and convenience for patients throughout the state and beyond. Sara Marie Moore

Bears trail all the way but nip Zephyrs at the end 68-65 BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR
White Bear Lake boys basketball trailed until the final 21 seconds but pulled out a 68-65 win over Mahtomedi, led by freshman Jack Janicki and junior Will Forsythe, at home Saturday evening. “The guys really battled back,” said coach Keith Lockwood after the Bears (5-6) rallied from a 10-point deficit late in the game. “Jack got hot, and we stepped up our defensive pressure.” The last two baskets came from Forsythe — with 0:21 left for their first lead, and again with 0:05 left. Forsythe struck for 18 points and eight rebounds. It was a breakout game for the 6-8 junior who was averaging 4.3 with a previous high of seven. “Will has been struggling, so it was great to see him have a big game like that,” Lockwood said, noting that Forsthye shot 8-for-8 from the field. Janicki pumped in 23 points, 18 of them in the second half. Brice Peters chipped in 10 points and Kanye Raheem nine. Brody Fox led Mahtomedi (6-5) with 23 points. Cal Greene tallied 14 and Cole Chapman 12. The Zephyrs
were 8-for-9 on free shots while the Bears were just 5-for-13. Janicki, a fleet, left-handed 6-2 guard, jump-started the Bears rally from a 10-point deficit by sinking two straight long 3-pointers, then snagging an errant mid-court inbounds pass by the Zephyrs and dashing for a layup. With the Bears down 65-64 and the clock winding under 25 seconds, Janicki tried for the lead with another launch from outside the arc. This one missed, but Forsythe snagged the long rebound in the lane, pivoted and laid in the go-ahead shot. Mahtomedi had two unfortunate turnovers in the time remaining — one for inadvertently stepping across the over-and-back line after snagging a tipped pass, the other when Greene dribbled on the baseline after rebounding a missed free throw by Alec Garza. Garza missed two freebies there, but, after the lucky turnover, made up for it with a perfect inbounds pass to Forsythe under the hoop. Forsythe was fouled while making the shot. He missed the free throw, giving Mahtomedi a chance to tie, but Greene’s long shot at the horn fell short.
BRUCE STRAND | SUBMITTED
Will Forsythe, shown here while jostling for rebound position, tallied 18 points, including the last four for the lead.
The Bears always seem to find a way against Mahtomedi despite facing talented Zephyr teams. Lockwood noted that the Bears have lost to their next-door neighbors just twice in his 15 years. The Bears (2-3 in conference) split two conference games earlier in the week. They lost to unbeaten Mounds View 57-41 Tuesday evening in which Peters tallied 17 points, Garza 12 and Janicki 10. They beat Woodbury 70-64 on Thursday with Janicki hitting 25 points, Peters 15 and Raheem 10.

White Bear Lake scored twice in the last 74 seconds to force overtime and Grant Hofeld notched the game-winner as the Bears nipped Stillwater 4-3 on Thursday evening in a duel of conference powers. The No. 4 ranked Bears (10-2-1) then lost to Minnetonka 4-3 Saturday, both games at home. Against Stillwater, the Bears had to step it up. “For the most part Stillwater was the better team for two periods,” Bear coach Tim Sager said. “The players decided that we were going to work really hard, which decided the outcome. In the third period we were the faster team and won puck battles, which gave us scoring chances.” The Bears were skating 6-on-4, on a power play with goalie pulled, when Tyler Schauer collected a rebound and scored with 1:14 left. The Bears pulled the goalie again with a minute to go. After Pony goalie Logan Bies rebuffed some good Love your neighborhood, house and area and don’t want to move? Bear opportunities, Lleyton Roed made a face-off pass to Grant Hofeld, who relayed directly to Billy Rose, Mike can redesign your kitchen, main ﬂoor and bathrooms. who one-timed it past the goalie with 11 ticks left. In overtime, a Triston Johnson forecheck knocked the puck loose, Sam Verkerke won the foot race to the puck and passed to Hofeld in the slot, and Hofeld snapped off a quick shot to the top corner. “As excited as the team was,” Sager said, “we are still learning how important it is to play three periods with the intensity they showed at the end of the game.” Ty Tucotto, Cooper Wylie and Carter Bies scored for the Ponies (8-3). In the Suburban East, Cretin-Derham Hall is 8-0, the Bears 8-1, Stillwater 6-2, and Forest Lake 5-2-2. Minnetonka (8-7) drilled three straight goals in the third period to take a 4-2 lead on the Bears on Saturday. Sam Newpower notched his second goal of the game at 13:59 to close the gap. Joe Montgomery Before had the other Bears goal. Tyler Steffens was in the nets both games.

as the Mustangs rallied from 10 points down. Late in the game, Becker broke the Mustangs career record, which was 1,568 by Jenny Cafferty. Close behind with 1,513 points is Ella Janicki’s mom, Stacy (Fields) Janicki, who was at the game. She joined the standing ovation for Becher, then had another occasion to applaud heartily when Ella came through at the end. The Bears defeated Woodbury 57-46 on Friday evening at Woodbury, with Janicki netting 15 points, Julia Juelich 13 and Hughes with 11.
Ella Janicki sank the game-winner with 2.3 seconds left as White Bear Lake held off Mounds View 43-41 in Mounds View on Tuesday, Dec. 7. With the Mustangs

Mahtomedi racquet ace nabs 2 more world medals BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR
Ava Kaiser of Lake Elmo captured two bronze medals in the world racquetball meet Nov. 9-17 in San Jose, Costa Rica, in her first time competing in the 14U level. Last weekend, Kaiser place third in the state womenâ€™s tournament. The 14-year-old Mahtomedi freshman lifted her career total to seven world medals in four years as a member of Team USA. She qualified for worlds in June in Portland, Oregon. At the International Racquetball Federation Championships, Kaiser placed third in singles, beating two girls from Canada, two from Guatemala and one from Costa Rica before losing to Mexicoâ€™s Angela Ortega. After falling behind 6-1, she battled back and lost two
close sets 15-12, 15-14. She teamed with Kareena Mathews of Oregon for the fourth time at worlds. They beat teams from Costa Rica and Canada, lost to a team from Bolivia, and placed third. Kaiser, ranked No. 2 among Minnesota women, was hoping to face Vallena Peraullt, whoâ€™s been No. 1 for several years, in the Minnesota State Singles Tournament at the University of Minnesota. Kaiser had beaten Peraullt last summer and needed to beat her again to take over the top rank. However, after defeating Wendy Miller of Rochester 15-3, 15-7 in the quarterfinals, she lost to her doubles partner, Barb Hoffner of Bloomington, 6-15, 9-15, in the semifinals Saturday, and placed third.
Ava Kaiser cranked up for a serve in Costa Rica.
Mahtomedi council assigns duties for new year BY LORETTA HARDING CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The Mahtomedi City Council at its. Jan. 7 meeting welcomed new Councilwoman Jane Schneeweis and gave a fond farewell to the person who swore her in, City Attorney Jay Karlovich. Mayor Judson Marshall read a resolution honoring Karlovich for his 20 years of service to the city. Marshall said Karlovich, an attorney with the law firm of Levander, Gillen & Miller P.A. of South St. Paul, provided the city with excellent customer service. â€œHe took the extra step to assist city staff,â€? City Administrator Scott Neilson said. Karlovich, who is moving out of state, was always accessible and gave sound counsel, Neilson said. â€œHe played a major role in the successes weâ€™ve had and will be missed.â€? Karlovich, in his turn, described the Mahtomedi City Council and staff as professional and very efficient at providing services to its citizens. â€œIt was always a pleasure working with council and staff. Iâ€™ll miss you, but I wonâ€™t miss winter,â€? he said. The 2020 Mahtomedi City Council is made up of Mayor Judson Marshall and council members Richard Brainerd, Jeff Ledermann, Steve Wolgamot and Jane Schneeweis. It was introductions all around as Mahtomedi Fire Chief Terry Fischer introduced two new full-time firefighter/emergency medical technicians (EMTs) Brian Ness and Mike Valento. The two new fire department employees had just successfully completed their six-month probationary periods and will see their compensation increased by one step. Ness and Valento didn't even wait until the end of their probationary period or even for the first council meeting to introduce themselves to their new council member, Schneeweis: The two new firefighter/EMT's were part of the team of first responders on scene when Schneeweis' husband, Bob, became injured after falling on ice. Their professionalism â€œmade me proud of our response team,â€? she said. In addition, the city will officially welcome a new accounting clerk at City Hall by acknowledging the successful completion of the six-month probationary period for Accounting Clerk Amy Labelle. She will also see her compensation increased by one step. As required by Minnesota statute, council turned its first regular meeting of the month into an organizational meeting, figuratively shuffling chairs around. Council appointed its members to various advisory committees: council president (Ledermann), liaisons to the Finance (Brainerd), Environmental (Ledermann), Parks (Schneeweis) and Planning (Marshall) commissions, Law Enforcement Services (Brainerd) and Personnel Committee (Wolgmot and Brainerd). Council then appointed consultants in areas of accounting/auditing (CliftonLarsonAllen), legal (Levander, Gillen & Miller), engineering (WSB), fiscal consulting (Ehlers Investment Partners) and city planning (WSB). As in other years, regular council meetings will be held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.
Notable exceptions will be Tuesday, March 3 (changed to Monday, March 2, due to the nominating elections); Tuesday, Aug. 4 (changed to Monday, Aug. 3, due to Night to Unite) and Tuesday, Nov. 3 (changed to Monday, Nov. 2 due to the General Election). Council also approved its standing rules of procedure, based largely on Robert's Rules of Order. Required legal announcements will be published in the White Bear Press, the city's official newspaper. Designated depositories, which consist of eight financial institutions â€” all in accordance with state law â€” will be used according to their various specialties for the city's financial needs. Council appointed liaisons to neighboring communities: Willernie (Wolgamot), Dellwood (Schneeweis), Grant (Marshall), White Bear Lake (Marshall and Neilson), Birchwood Village (Wolgamot), Pine Springs (Ledermann), Century College (Brainerd), Mahtomedi School District (Marshall) and Washington County (Marshall and Neilson). Due to the number of advisory commission positions scheduled to expire this spring, council authorized city staff to advertise to fill those vacant seats. In the event that the people currently holding those seats don't wish to renew their appointments, citizens of Mahtomedi will be invited to apply for the two potential openings coming up on the Parks Commission, four openings on the Planning Commission, four openings on the Environmental Commission and five openings on the Finance Commission. In other action, the council: â€˘ Created a part-time accounting clerk position and gave city staff permission to advertise. The part-time position will average 20 hours per
week from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Duties will be the same as the full-time accounting clerk, with ability to assist with both utility billing and administrative and fi nance support. With the retirement of office personnel last summer, City Hall office support staff will decrease from four full-time equivalents (FTE) to 3.5 FTEâ€™s. The four office positions include city clerk, accounting clerk, office assistant and administrative support specialist. The part-time accounting clerk will take the place of a full-â€˘ Approved the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) mileage rate of 57.5 cents per mile for personal vehicle use, effective Jan. 1. City employees donâ€™t use personal vehicles very much, but the city would like to compensate for that use. â€˘ Approved a resolution calling for a public hearing on Feb. 4 about the cityâ€™s street reconstruction plan and the issuance of bonds. The city will prepare a plan for reconstruction of streets in the city over the next five years; the city would issue general obligation bonds to fi nance the cost of street reconstruction activities described in the plan. â€˘ Approved an agreement with Northeast Youth and Family Services to meet the needs of atrisk youth and families. The budgeted annual amount for 2020 is $14,015. â€˘ Approved construction pay voucher No. 3 for the Lake Links and Forest Avenue Streetcar Trails Project in the amount of $32,829.62 to Sunram Construction. The council next meets at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21, at City Hall, 600 Stillwater Road.

Township board keeps it short and sweet
In a total of nine minutes, the White Bear Township board held its fi rst meeting of the year on Jan. 6. As Board Chair Ed Prudhon put it, the fi rst meeting of the year usually deals with “housekeeping” tasks, such as confi rming appointments to city offices. In its short meeting, the township board: • Tabled a vote on accepting grant funding from Saputo for construction of a shelter at Bellaire Beach. It also tabled the scheduling of a town board meeting to tour the new covered bridge trail in Mahtomedi. • Recognized the citizens who serve on each of the township’s advisory commissions. Board members noted that citizens wishing to participate in city commissions would be especially welcome on the park board or the utility commission. • Designated the White Bear Press as the official newspaper of White Bear Township. • Some citizens present at the board meeting inquired about Water Gremlin’s upcoming building project, as an earlier draft of the meeting agenda included a presentation from Water Gremlin. Prudhon told attendees that Water Gremlin had not yet been issued a building permit. “We’re in the same boat that you are,” he said. “We’re waiting.” The next township board meeting will take place 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 20. Meetings are held at Heritage Hall, 4200 Otter Lake Road, White Bear Township.

Financial Management Advantages to working with a financial planner
Investing requires some measure of risk. Risk understandably makes people nervous, especially in regard to their ﬁnances. Investing is an important component of securing your ﬁnancial future, and the risk involved with investing should never prevent you from putting your money to work. Many people, including both novice and experienced investors, overcome their fears about investing and risk by working with certiﬁed ﬁnancial planners, who can do a lot more than make suggestions.
· Financial planners can make sense of complex products. Financial jargon can be hard to understand for those who do not work in ﬁnance. Financial planners simplify the complex array of products available to their clients, helping them understand each of their options as well as which of those options is best for them. · Financial planners can expand your investment options. Financial planners sometimes have access to products that are not directly available to everyone.
· Some ﬁnancial product providers work exclusively through intermediaries (i.e., planners), so working with a ﬁnancial planner can give investors more options in regard to how to invest their money. · Financial planners do the legwork. Even seasoned investors with a ﬁrm grasp of ﬁnancial products and services may not have the time to stay up on all the latest investment options. Financial planners do so for a living. A good planner will inform his or clients of the latest products available and then help clients decide if such products are right for them. That’s a lot of work that busy professionals often do not have the time to do on their own. · Financial planners are certiﬁed. Investors should only work with certiﬁed ﬁnancial planners. Certiﬁcation standards vary by country, but certiﬁed planners have been vetted by third party organizations and have met rigorous professional standards. In addition, to maintain their certiﬁcation, certiﬁed planners are required to provide their clients with straightforward advice and put clients’ needs ahead of their 655460

It certainly has been a mild start to the new year. Overnight lows have been way above average which led us to averaging nearly 10º warmer than normal. The airport finally recorded it’s first subzero morning (since Dec. 18) this past Saturday. With highs averaging in the mid to low 30’s and no snow until this past Monday, it had been easy getting around. I spotted my first pickup on White Bear Lake this past weekend. Most others were parked in lots or along the shore. No reports of breakthroughs. Arctic air is expected to move in this weekend and that will help thicken the ice.

This year, the Mahtomedi Middle School Student Council raised $6,446 during its Ka$h 4 Kidz project, a program to help local community members and families with holiday gifts. The donations allowed the students to purchase gifts for 58 people from 25 families in Mahtomedi. After the shopping, students were able to take the remaining donations and give them to the Mahtomedi Food Shelf.
