A High-Speed Chase, Rising Tide of Flu and New Council-Roseville Rewind

A look at some of the top news stories of the past week on Roseville Patch.

Two schools in Roseville District 623 _ Emmet D. Williams and Brimhall elementary _ have had enough cases of students sick with influenza this week to report that information to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

That news comes as the Health Department released new data today showing that there have been more than 1,000 hospitalizations for influenza this season and now 27 confirmed deaths.

The rising tide of flu cases in the state, and Roseville, was among the major news stories of the past week on Roseville Patch. To see the complete report, click here.
