ST. PAUL — Along with the usual caveats about muzzle control and keeping the safety on, Garth Guyer, a youth firearms safety instructor in Dakota County, gave his class of 30 one more order for range day on Saturday, April 21. "Bring your permethrin!" he said. "The ticks will be out." The delayed spring, followed by an upcoming week of temperatures reaching 65 degrees, has created a perfect storm for tick season. They have been waiting to emerge, and they are ravenous.
ST. PAUL — Megan Freitas, 21, was heading to her last class of the day in downtown St. Paul on Thursday, Dec. 14, when she got an email that would change everything. “It is with deep regret that we are writing to you to inform you that McNally Smith College of Music must discontinue all course offerings at the end of this fall semester, 2017,” stated the email sent out by college officials.
