Kindness forecasted for Lake Elmo in 2018


submitted image • The Lake Elmo Rotary Club plans to hand out “pass it forward” cards to residents to promote its Kindness Campaign.

The back of the card also lists examples of random acts of kindness, such as paying for the order behind you in the drive-through, visiting someone in a nursing home who doesn’t often get visitors and leaving a book you’ve finished where someone else can have it.

Lake Elmo Mayor Mike Pearson recently declared 2018 as “Random Acts of Kindness Year” in the city.

Maplewood business setting interior design trend


Aundrea Kinney photos/Review • Steve Cody, owner of LuxNova Stone, opened his Maplewood showroom July 2017 to display thinly sliced stone, which can be used for any number of home or business design projects. Because the stone is sliced so thin, it is lightweight and often can be backlit with white or colored light.

For about six months, Maplewood has been home to LuxNova Stone, a company which, according to the owner, is at the forefront of the stonework and home design industries.
