SARTELL (AP) — The Verso paper mill was a key part of Sartell before it was put out of commission by a 2012 fire. And now, a local artist and Sartell High School teacher have found a way to keep pieces of it in the community.

The pair is leading a project that will repurpose pieces of building into sculptures — which will also serve as bike racks around town.

Artist Heidi Jeub and Sartell High School technology education teacher Joe Schulte plan to start sculpting this summer.

The mill opened in 1905, two years before Sartell became a city. Jeub says the mill has always seemed sort of mythical. She says this is an interesting way to let people see inside the building.
