“The Ownership of being a student. What tools are your students missing? ” Presented by Megan Stone


Megan will discuss the reasons why many students are not equipped with the tools to be successful in school and what we can do to help them to take ownership of their school experience. Some tools that will be discussed are homework help, homework completion, self advocacy, and organization.


Megan Stone has her masters in science education and was a teacher in the Eden Prairie and Edina. She has been working with students and faculty for over 15 years. She is the founder and president of Stone Foundations of Learning. The mission of Stone Foundations of Learning, Inc., is to help students and faculty build confidence in and outside of the classroom by teaching organizational skills and improving their quality of work, while developing a student’s ability to advocate for themselves and encouraging them to take responsibility for their own actions through ownership.



CEU certificate available.

Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Route Change Along Lake Nokomis

share save 256 24 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Route Change Along Lake Nokomis

In 2013, the October 6th Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon route is changing and this affects residents in the Hale and Diamond Lake neighborhoods. The starting line for the race has changed slightly in anticipation of construction around the Metrodome, and to make up for the resulting lost distance, runners will now run along the west side of Lake Nokomis on W. Lake Nokomis Parkway (see map, attached). In previous years, runners have followed Cedar Avenue across the lake before turning on E. Lake Nokomis Parkway.


Traffic will not be allowed on W. and E. Lake Nokomis Parkway and road closures will begin at 7:30 a.m. Please be aware of special NO PARKING restrictions along the routes; signs will be posted on each block. Residents living in the affected area should utilize westbound streets and southbound avenues. For northbound travel, 35W and Nicollet Avenue both go over the course and will be unaffected.


Twin Cities In Motion works closely with the police and traffic departments to ensure safety and minimal disruptions. The race route will be opened to traffic at approximately 11:20 after the runners and TCM cleaning crew have passed the area. As a major community event, we strive to be a good neighbor to all residents who live and work along the course and ask our runners, spectators and volunteers to respect public and private property as if it were their own.


Thank you for understanding and we hope that you will come out and cheer on the race!

Burglars Strike 11 times in 3 days in 4 neighborhoods July 20, 2013



Eleven burglaries have been reported in the last three days in Sector 3 of the 3rd Precinct, with 5 in Morris Park, three in Page, two in Keewaydin, and one in Diamond Lake. Both homes and garages were targeted.

Forced entries included a brick being thrown through the window of the back door in one home burglary. In others, the rear doors were kicked or doors pried. One unlocked car parked outside a garage contained an automatic door opener which may have been used to open the garage. Items also were taken from an unlocked vehicle inside another unlocked garage.

Stolen items included jewelry, seven bikes, and other items. Loss is still being determined in some incidents.

Possible suspects were seen only in only one incident: a witness walking his dog early in the morning saw some bikes lying in an alley, and a white male and a black male, both 15 to 17 years of age, running down the alley.

Here is a summary of the incidents:
