Inver Grove Heights school district hones in on potential new start times


courtesy Inver Grove Heights Schools • Inver Grove Heights Schools is looking at possibly switching the start and end times of its elementary and secondary schools. This would put the start time of secondary students in better alignment with research that shows later start times are better for their sleep habits. The change, which would need to be approved by the ISD 199 school board, wouldn’t take effect until the 2019-2020 school year.

West St. Paul residents call for change following allegations of sexism on city council


Hannah Burlingame/Review • It was standing-room-only in a full West St. Paul City Council chambers May 14 as woman after woman stepped up to the podium to speak out in support of Samantha Green and Mayor Jenny Halverson, who speakers said they thought were treated in a sexist way by others on the council.

The May 14 West St. Paul City Council meeting was filled to the brim, with people standing in doorways straining to hear what was being said, while a table inside the council chambers was stacked two feet high with feminine hygiene products.

Little farm in the big city


Marjorie Otto photo/Review • The Rivoli Bluff Farm, located in the Railroad Island neighborhood at the western end of Minnehaha Avenue, consists of a large garden, an orchard, beehives and a gravel garden for starting trees. New this year, a high tunnel greenhouse is being constructed, which will extend the time for produce to grow. The farm is run by Urban Roots, an East Side youth organization that employs area high school students and teaches them agriculture, cooking and conservation skills.

Walking down to the Rivoli Bluff Farm, some may forget they are still in the heart of the city as they breath the smell of fresh-turned soil and watch bees whiz by.
