A Woodbury man reported April 23 that his neighbor from two doors down was shouting at him, calling him an "old pedophile." Police attempted making contact with the name-caller, a Rimbley Road woman who refused to talk to police. Police were called April 23 to a suspicious situation at Target, 7200 Valley Creek Plaza. A caller reported seeing a man staggering around the entrance huffing a substance from a can. Police found the man unresponsive 10 feet from the store's entrance.
It's awful tempting. With thousands of bargain hunters scouring the streets of Woodbury from Thursday to Saturday this week, the thought has likely occurred to many of us: "Say, why not get in on the action?" These thoughts surround the annual Woodbury Lions Garage Sale event, where scores of residents register and pay to be part of the sale, which draws visitors from far beyond city limits.
Woodbury senior Renard Suggs posted on Twitter he is signing with the University of Wyoming of Gillette to play basketball. Gillette, a Division 1 junior college, is the school his older brother Rickey played for this past year. Suggs, a shooting guard, averaged a team-best 19.1 points per game this winter for Woodbury. Woodbury head baseball coach Kevin McDermott returned to the team last week from a two-week suspension. Sources said McDermott was disciplined after being reported for using foul language toward a player.

When an allegedly impaired driver rear-ended another vehicle on a chilly January night and burst into flames, three area residents leapt into action, risking their lives to save a 29-year-old man and his dog. Because of their bravery and quick thinking, all parties in the accident were rescued, an extraordinary feat the city of Cottage Grove recognized last month when Cottage Grove City Council presented awards to Chris Donahoe, Matthew Labine and Roger Gibney. "Because of your prompt action and humanitarian regard for the disoriented driver in the face of an extremely dangerous situation, y

The Royals may be playing catch-up with Mother Nature, but they're holding their own against Suburban East Conference competition. Woodbury improved to 4-1 in SEC following wins last week over Hastings and White Bear Lake. The Royals' lone conference loss came Thursday, May 2, against unbeaten SEC leader Mounds View. "I'm happy with where we are right now," said Woodbury tennis coach Michael Moran. Woodbury started off the week on April 29 with a 6-1 home win over Hastings. Once again, the Royals' singles players dominated each of their games. No.
Talk about a rebound performance. One week removed from a double-header where Woodbury gave up a combined 27 runs, the Royals bounced back and built a 5-3 record behind big wins over Roseville and Mounds View. Woodbury began the week on April 29 with a double-header - the second of many the Royals will play this spring, due to a long stretch of inclement weather that barred play - at home against Mounds View. Woodbury won the first game 8-5 behind a strong outing from junior pitcher Caitlin Balsimo, who allowed five on the way to her second win of the season.
Woodbury junior pitcher Ben Meyer walked a tight rope on the mound at times Thursday against Tartan at Midway Stadium in St. Paul, but Meyer battled back from jams to help lead the Royals to a 6-3 victory. Meyer allowed nine hits, struck out five and walked one in a complete-game effort and worked out of a third inning jam to prevent the Titans from taking the lead. Woodbury led 1-0 heading into the bottom of the third inning when Tartan loaded the bases after three consecutive hitters reached base with one out.
