Two boys, ages 13 and 14, were arrested Tuesday morning for stealing video games from the i play store at 1830 Tower Ave. A web camera surveillance system installed by i play owners just last week recorded the burglary and arrest. Building maintenance worker Gary Meysman called store co-owner Sam Smith on Tuesday to tell him that one of the store's rear windows had been broken out. Smith called co-owner Luke Hauser, who logged in to the web camera and saw people in the building.
Susan Slater makes tough choices nearly every day about which horses get a chance. "You can't save the world," said Slater, who owns Animal Rescue and Farm Sanctuary in Trego. The farm, which serves a six-county region, gets about 100 calls a year to take in horses. But only half of them find sanctuary. "A lot of people, they don't say 'No,'" Slater said. In those cases, she said, rescuers end up in need of rescue. Of the horses that find respite, many are cared for and adopted out.

Sometimes, all it takes to make a neighborhood is a single neighbor. Or, in the case of Connors Point, two. A trio of houses huddle together along what was once Superior's busiest roadway -- Main Street. The rest of the point, which boasts a ringside view of vessels gliding under the Blatnik Bridge, belongs to industry. Deer and ducks are familiar sites, but not playing children. This 1.5-mile spit of land has been Helen Carlson's home for 89 years.
