Area cities regulate e-cigarette sales

More and more cities in Ramsey County are updating municipal tobacco ordinances to regulate the sale of electronic devices that deliver nicotine such as e-cigarettes. Products like e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, but contain the same -- some times higher-- amount of nicotine found in regular cigarettes. People who use e-cigarettes often refer to it as “vaping,’ since the heated nicotine produces a vapor instead of smoke.

Archdiocese discloses sexual abuse claims against nine more priests

On Monday, Feb. 17, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis released a list of nine more priests thought to have been credibly accused of sexual misconduct.
The archdiocese released the names following a comprehensive file review by Kinsale Management Consulting, an outside firm based in Los Angeles, Calif. The review began in December 2013, when a Ramsey County judge ordered the archdiocese to release the list of priests who had been credibly accused of sexual abuse. At that time, the archdiocese disclosed claims against 33 priests.

Mail thefts spike during tax season


The red Toyota RAV4 suspect vehicle that authorities believe was used to commit mail theft in Roseville and Woodbury. A homeowner living on Dunlap Circle in Roseville sent this image recorded by her home surveillance camera to police. St. Paul Police pulled the same vehicle over in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood and arrested two St. Paul men early Friday, Feb. 7.

Local police departments are asking residents to keep a close eye on their mailboxes following an increase in mail theft in Roseville and other communities across the metro. With tax season under way, some thieves have been rifling through people’s mailboxes searching for documents containing personal information that can be used to commit identity theft.   
“We’ve noticed an uptick, which typically starts around the holidays, but really starts fast and furious in January when employers send out W2’s and 1099’s,” Roseville Police Lt. Lorne Rosand said.

Unrelenting cold has schools scheduling makeup days

Due to bitterly cold temperatures -- caused by what the National Weather Service has dubbed as “polar vortices”  -- several local school districts are scheduling makeup days for students after five days of school cancellations in January.
Under state statutes, school districts must provide a minimum of 1,020 hours of instructional time per school year, or 165 days.  School districts vary, however, in how many extra days are added to each school calendar year to act as a buffer for weather-related cancellations.
