Government of, by and for the people requires keeping "the people" informed.

Control and chaos. Order and impulse. The place where opposites collide is explored in "Wilderness," a new dance composition by Brian Brooks to be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 28, at the Sheldon Theatre.

WOODBURY -- A group of women who gather every month at a Woodbury coffee shop shows just how small the world is. Or how diverse the city has grown to be. The International Women's Group of Woodbury consists of members who come from all different parts of the world: Brazil, Mexico, Korea, Hong Kong, England, Canada, France, Lebanon, Egypt, Argentina and Chile, just to name a few. The group was started just last spring by Lisa Vale, an American whose family traveled for work to Brazil, Italy and Spain for 15 years before finally settling in Woodbury.
Nick Boyer doesn't think physical fitness should be limited to those who can afford it. The Woodbury resident and personal trainer recently launched an organization called Power of Exercise.

The plan, he explained, calls for Power of Exercise to receive nominations for prospective clients through the organization's website.

The significance of a driver's license never truly dissipates, which makes it difficult for aging men and women to address their abilities as a driver and whether they can still safely share the road with other motorists. Traffic statistics show there are reasons to be increasingly cognizant of a driver's ability as he or she ages. Drivers over 65 have as high a crash rate as teenage drivers, said Larry Nadeau, director of outreach with the Minnesota Highway Safety and Research Center.
