This sainting goes to an incredible soul. I forgot my wallet in a shopping cart and the saint never stole.
It happened at Target Store on Robert Street. The humble saint who turned it in was quite discreet. Alas I recognized my mistake and returned to the Target store, imagining that cancelling my credit cards would be a big chore. But there it was, waiting for me in the customer service area. (You should have seen me, there was a bit of hysteria).
No one knows who turned my wallet in. The saint who found it surely could have done a big sin. There was cash inside, gift cards, and credit cards too. But the wonderful saint decided to eschew. Nothing was taken. My hope in humanity was waken. THANK YOU, kind soul, for returning my wallet and money. May you be blessed as an outstanding human being, as you are a honey.

Sainted and Tainted
Sainted: The state trooper and EMT personnel who helped get us out of harm’s way and assisted us after we were rear-ended on the notorious north-bound middle lane of the Lafayette Bridge.
Tainted: The creep who hit us and sped off, leaving us with a $7,000 repair bill. The bonehead administration that was responsible for implementing the bridge departure lane scheme that has led to numerous accidents and the administration that refuses to fix it.

Recently I buried the ashes of my much loved cat, Duffy Boy. He was with me for 17 years, and had become quite ill. The ache and sadness of letting him pass on to The Rainbow Bridge was softened by the genuine and heartfelt compassion from the staff at Rivertown Animal Hospital in Stillwater,
My sincere thanks to you all.

A heartfelt sainted to the kind gentleman in the Frattalone jacket who picked up the tab for two 80+ year-old high school friends at the Vadnais Heights Perkins. I am recovering from a fractured spine so just getting out then and receiving such a super treat was very special. Thank you, Sir!

I would like to give a big Sainted to a Cub employee at the White Bear Avenue location. My father went in to shop on Friday Sept. 23 and was having issues with his bank card This employee paid for my father’s groceries.
It’s amazing to see the kindness of others — we will pay it forward.

A very, very tainted to the Pioneer Press. The U of M Gophers women’s volleyball program is first class and has been one of the top programs in the country for years but get virtually no coverage in this paper.
Our female athletes deserve better.

A big shout out goes to Dave and Matt, of the InWood HOA Board, for their act of kindness on Saturday, Aug. 27. On their own accord, they pruned the lower branches of the birch trees in the west rain garden of Lower 8th Place North in Lake Elmo. They are to be Sainted for beautifying our loop.

A “Sainted” to Bill Morelock and MPR’s Friday Favorites show for making my daughter’s 22nd birthday so special by playing her requests. Not only did we enjoy it, but family across the state were able to simultaneously celebrate her birthday through the experience of beautiful music and Mr. Morelock’s excellent commentary. Well done and thank you!
