A White Bear Lake firefighter who vowed to camp out until a U-Haul was completely filled with donations for the area food shelf has reached his goal – all before Sunday football. On Friday, firefighter Jeff Loeks said he wouldn’t leave downtown White Bear Lake until the U-Haul was filled with donations intended for the White Bear Area Food Shelf.
It will be a couple of days before a section of parking ramp reopens at the Mall of America. An overhead beam fell last night when a U-Haul truck hit it while driving past. It happened on the north side of the west ramp near Nordstroms.
