Finding unexpected spring fun in Columbia

Loblolly pines and cypress trees tower over the swamp boardwalk at Congaree National Park.

Late winter is definitely not a fun time in Minnesota. That was especially true this year when even the hardiest Paul Bunyan-types among us were crying for mercy.

Tackling lead on the East Side and across the state


courtesy of East Side Neighborhood Development Company For the first year of a program created by the East Side Neighborhood Development Company — called the LeadSafeMN Initiative — three East Side census tracts where children showed high levels of lead in their blood were the focus. LeadSafeMN aims to create funding sources and resources to bring lead poisoning down to zero. The initiative will eventually address the 40 census tracts statewide where kids are testing for high levels of lead.

Lead poisoning is often thought of as a problem from the past, one that has been solved through requirements for safer paints and materials in homes.

More East Side road projects planned for 2019


graphics courtesy of City of St. Paul Margaret Street is a bike boulevard, meaning the road is meant to be shared between cyclists and drivers without separate, marked bike lanes. Work along the street this year will include the installation of traffic circles and curb bump-outs to serve as traffic-calming features to slow down vehicles on the street.

The City of St. Paul has a number of construction projects it will be managing on the East Side this summer.
