In my humble opinion "YES".
My husband and I lived in Daytons Bluff for 7 years in a beautiful Queen Anne home that was on the National Historical Register. We left because there had been a stabbing at the local elementary building down the street. We lost two St. Paul Police Officers (one a close friend) and a police dog, just one block from our home.
We cried when we left, but are very happy in White Bear Lake, where I grew up and have just celebrated our 27th year here.
I worked for the School District and both of our daughter received excellent educations.
