I recently had the opportunity to sample some of the craft beers being made by Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. The craft beer market is heating up in our region and it's nice to see local companies having success.
As August slips away, officials are running out of time to complete road construction projects that are on the docket for the summer of 2014. As in years past, Minnesota Department of Transportation officials are utilizing night crews to help projects finish on schedule.
The middle of August is a good time to check in with all of the summer road construction projects going on in our area. The Twin Ports has been hit hard again with orange cones as the first-phase of the two-year Bong Bridge rebuild has progressed and other projects have left detours and road closed signs in the path of just about everyone.
