  • History continues to be written at Spring Grove Communications

    There was a time that phones were connected to a wall and were on a “party line” — meaning they shared the line with other households each having their own distinct set of rings. Times progressed to houses having private lines and if a person wanted a little privacy during a phone call, they had to have a long and stretchy spiral cord so they could sneak into another room or to a set of stairs to get away from others. People could only be contacted when they were at a home. Times have drastically changed and now people can be contacted practically everywhere via cellular phones.

  • Lanesboro to welcome new antique store this spring

    Ann Hanner and her husband, David, own the incoming antique business, Willow Creek Antiques, in downtown Lanesboro. The community has been in dire need of an antique shop — or so they have been told.

  • Folz is national P,P&K runner-up
    Alex Folz placed second in the national finals of the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick competition in Renton, WA last Saturday. He was one of only four finalists in his division for 14 and 15 year-old boys. 
  • Vix scores 600 career coaching wins
    The Rushford-Peterson boys’ basketball team has reason to celebrate after the Jan. 13 win against Southland. Not only did the Trojans beat the Rebels handily and earn their 12th win of the season, but coach Tom Vix won the 600th game of his coaching career. 
  • Boys wallop Waukon, hold off Lyle/Pacelli
    The Spring Grove boys (13-2, 10-1 SEC) sprinted past Waukon in a non-conference contest last week before fending off a late rally by Lyle/Pacelli. Just after this edition went to press, the Lions hosted sub-section rival and state-ranked No. 3 Rushford-Peterson. 
  • LHS boys go 3-0 for week

    The Lanesboro boys basketball team had a successful stretch last week, winning all three games it played.

  • Something I thought was never possible has happened. I have been reading the sports pages in the daily newspaper. Well, I don’t read the whole sports section, but I have become interested in reading whatever the writers are saying about the Gopher women’s and men’s basketball teams.

  • Proponents and opponents have already lined up on the proposals by DFL state senators in Minnesota and President Barack Obama to make tuition free for community college education as long as students meet certain criteria, such as reaching a certain grade point average and staying in school for two years.

  • I finally gave up my old LG cell phone when it no longer kept a charge in the battery. It worked just fine as long as I was “plugged in” to the charger, but that kind of defeated the purpose of having a “mobile” phone. I had that phone for many years, resisting the urge to upgrade to a smart phone.


Do you support the 600-mile crude oil Sandpiper line, which is proposed to run from North Dakota through Minnesota to Wisconsin?
