Superintendent Lunn to talk on levy

Stillwater Schools Superintendent Corey Lunn will discuss the district’s upcoming levy proposal at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Lake Elmo Public Library, 3537 Lake Elmo Av. N.

Voters are being asked to back a request for $16.2 million in funding annually, up from the $11 million now being raised by a levy set to expire in June 2014.

The Nov. 5 ballot proposal would cost the owner of a median-valued $250,000 home about $167 more in levy costs than they pay now.


‘Fun run’ event slated at Wildwood school

The Mahtomedi Area Educational Foundation (MAEF) will hold its second annual “family fun run” fundraiser on Sept. 28 outside the new Wildwood Elementary in Grant.

The event runs from 8 to 11 a.m. and will include both the 5K fun run and a kids’ 1-mile contest.

The activities coincide with Zephyr Days Homecoming Week in Mahtomedi.

According to Jen Ruhland, event coordinator for MAEF, last year’s inaugural run drew 212 participants on a course that crisscrossed the Mahtomedi community. This year, optional obstacles and in-course entertainment will be added along both courses, she said.

MAEF is in its 25th year and has provided nearly $1.5 million in support to teachers and students in the Mahtomedi community. To register, go to
