Storm damage — consumer alert

The recent storm blew down some trees, and it also attracted people trying to make a quick buck at the homeowner’s expense.
If your home or property was damaged, you may get salespeople knocking at your door promising to make repairs. Although most businesses are legitimate, there are some who may try to take advantage of you. They’ll use high pressure or intimidating tactics to get you to buy their products or services.

Enjoy the parks but take your purse and lock your car

Roseville Police remind you to plan carefully before visiting a park, both locally and while traveling. Do not leave valuables in your  vehicle. Thieves know that visitors often leave purses, cell phones, laptops, GPS devices and other valuables in their vehicles while hiking or picnicking, so vehicles in parking lots become easy targets. Consider wearing a backpack or fanny pack to carry  your valuables.  If you don’t want to carry them, leave them at home. Do not put something in your trunk or under your seat while at a park. Thieves may be watching and note what you are doing.

Prostitution arrests down 76 percent in Roseville

Is it possible that Roseville has gotten such a bad name -- among pimps and prostitutes, that is -- that these entrepreneurs are simply not venturing across the city’s borders?
The Roseville Police Department says that’s what’s happening. A recent study showed prostitution-related arrests in the city have decreased by 76 percent in the first half of this year compared to arrests at the same time last year.
Neighboring cities could soon see similar results. The Roseville department cites its participation in a countywide campaign to stop prostitution as the main contributing factor for the decline.

Dr. Franz Halberg of Roseville, the man who coined the term “circadian rhythms” and studied their effects on the delivery of chemotherapy and the diagnosis of hypertension, died June 9, just short of his 94th birthday.
Halberg was considered the father of modern chronobiology, a term he coined for using science in tune with the daily, weekly and other rhythms of the body. He also founded the Halberg Chronobiology Center at the University of Minnesota.
At an international symposium held in Shoreview to mark his 90th birthday, he discussed his life’s work and said each person has a built-in, 24-hour rhythm that can make the difference between the success and failure of a certain treatment.

Booklet commemorates Ramsey County Fair’s 100-year milestone


Jim Lindner

Did you know the Ramsey County Fair was canceled in 1946 due to a polio outbreak that infected one out of every 2,649 residents in St. Paul?
History buff Jim Lindner discovered this fact during his research for a booklet he wrote to commemorate the fair’s centennial anniversary.
In his 36-page booklet, “Down Through the Years,” Lindner takes readers on a journey of the fair’s history, starting with its founding in 1913 in White Bear Lake to its present-day location in Maplewood.
