There’s plenty of high school sports action this week leading up to a brief holiday break before several teams hit the road for holiday tournaments all over the state.
It’s hard to believe that there are just two weeks left in the high school football regular season. It’s now also that hectic time of year as teams will play Friday night, then get just a couple days to prepare for their final regular season game next Wednesday.

On the shores of White Bear Lake is a city that could be overlooked for the bigger town on the west side of the lake. But Mahtomedi holds its own with a small town feeling that the community embraces. Early on, this area was popular for the Wildwood Amusement Park that was built by the streetcar company to give metro residents a reason to ride to the end of the line. You could say back in the early 1900s when people said they were “going up north,” this was where they were going. Even though the amusement park is long gone (it closed in 1932) there is still plenty to see and do that’s old and new. From enjoying the outdoors to relaxing with a cup of coffee and knitting needles, head to the smaller city next to the big lake.
