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.

Midsummer in winter


The show must go on, and that’s just what happened for South St. Paul Theatre. Students performed “Midsummer 2019” April 11-14, just as a spring blizzard descended on the Twin Cities. The production, based on “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” brings together heroic figures from Greek mythology, mystical creatures from English folklore, young lovers from a Roman comedy and working class actors putting on a community theatre version of “Romeo and Juliet.” They all meet in the woods, where craziness ensues.
