It’s still unclear what killed hundreds, possibly thousands of fish in Lake Owasso over the long Thanksgiving weekend just days after the lake froze over. The prevailing theory is that high oxygen levels in the lake may have caused the fish kill.
“Right now it’s a theory,” Dave McCormack, assistant regional fisheries manager with the Department of Natural Resources said. “We are not exactly sure what caused this.”

Carp-free Casey Lake in North St. Paul benefits east metro watershed


North St. Paul public works staff installed an aerator at Casey Lake on Monday, Dec. 2, to help provide oxygen over the winter to bluegill and bass, which were stocked in the wetland that used to be a breeding ground for thousands of carp. Casey is connected to the Phalen chain of lakes, where multiple groups have been working to get rid of the invasive common carp. (Kaitlyn Roby/Review)

With ice still too thin to skate on, most of the action at Casey Lake in North St. Paul is bubbling beneath the surface.
City staff recently installed an aeration system at the lake, which is surrounded by sports courts, trails and a playground. Air is now being mechanically pumped into the water to keep up oxygen levels, helping native Minnesota fish stay alive over the winter to boost fishing and keep out the common carp.

East Side youth center breaks ground on expansion

180 Degrees has been on the East Side only for a couple of years, but it’s already looking to expand services to a population that needs them badly -- they’re adding shelter for underage girls who’ve been victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking.
The youth and adult social services organization, based in Minneapolis, opened a youth-oriented facility on the corner of Minnehaha Avenue and Johnson Parkway in 2011. About two years later, on the last week of November, the organization broke ground on a new building which will provide 12 dedicated beds to female victims ages 10-17 who need short-term shelter.
