A St. Paul boy whose feet were severed by a moving train last summer got a chance to thank first responders Thursday. In August, Marshawn Robinson was playing by some tracks near his home as a moving train went by. He apparently slipped and fell, and both of his feet were severed near his ankles. Thursday, the emergency workers who were the first to provide medical care were honored by Regions Hospital. This was the first time since the accident that Marshawn had a chance to talk to the people who stood by him during the scariest time of his life. Officer Marshall Titus was the first to arrive on the scene.

On Tuesday next week — Election Day — voters in Minneapolis will head to the polls to choose a new mayor and a new city council.

They’ve been called electronic babysitters. All of that technology we love, our kids love too. But you can have too much of a good thing. A report from the American Academy of Pediatrics found kids spend, on average, eight hours using some type of “entertainment media” each day. Doctors say one to two hours a day is plenty.

Excess use of cell phones, tablets and TVs is linked to violent behavior, cyberbullying, obesity, lack of sleep and other health problems.
This year, many of the kids who ring your doorbell will be asking if you have any non-perishable foods that you’d like to donate to a food shelf. It’s a community service effort that comes directly out of We Day Minnesota.

Police in Minneapolis are on the lookout for someone who has been looking into windows with a video camera. Three times last week, people living in the Como neighborhood called police to report a peeping incident.

The Como neighborhood is a short bike ride from the University of Minnesota, making it a popular place for students like Michael Canniff to rent homes.
