  • Trojans fall in state championship game
    Every team had a game plan for Noah Carlson, but Minneapolis North finally had one that worked.
  • Myrah repeats as MVP, all-conference
    The defense led the way for a young Caledonia/Spring Grove/Houston boys soccer team during the fall season. The team roster was made up of a lot of young players, but there were two experienced veterans who took on the job of leading the team.
  • Schwichtenberg, Scott repeat, joined by Troendle as All-District
    Lanesboro football standouts Cole Schwichtenberg and Collin Scott were selected for the 2016 All-District football team for the second season. Teammate Jared Troendle joined them as a First Team member, his first selection to the squad while T. J. Ruen and Shane Sorum received Honorable Mention honors.
  • Star Trek experience is more than entertainment
    A week or so ago I wrote in this diary about having missed two important dates this fall. The first was in September, the 50th anniversary of the first airing of Star Trek. The second reminded me of having missed the first: it was Space Week in October.
  • Natural wonders abound in Haines, Alaska
    I watched bald eagles feeding in November upon spawned-out chum salmon in an area outside Haines, Alaska, where a reservoir of warm water kept the Chilkat River from freezing. Each bald eagle eats around a pound of salmon each day. There were over 2,000 eagles counted. That’s a lot of salmon lunches.
  • Special days provide plenty of choices  for holiday shopping, giving, even hiking
    I’ve never been shopping on Black Friday. It’s not that I’m philosophically opposed to the frenzied day. It’s more a practical matter. Our small business can’t afford to take two holidays in a row for all our employees since we still have deadlines to meet and publications to print.
  • New Harmony vet finds good fit with local clinic
    When one first meets Dr. Erin Petro, it is hard to imagine this petite young lady wrestling large dairy or beef cows, horses or feeder pigs, but that’s exactly what the newest member of the Harmony & Cresco Veterinary Clinics does. Petro became the seventh veterinarian working with small and large animals at the vet clinic that serves a large area of southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa when she joined the team earlier this fall.
  • Area musician releases new album after 16 years
    “I guess it was time to put this together. I hadn’t done any recordings since 2000. I’ve been doing solo gigs for the past couple of years and decided it was time to do a solo album,” said Spring Grove resident Bob Bovee.
  • Lanesboro hosts Christmas inn tour this weekend
    Visitors to Minnesota’s Bed and Breakfast Capital this Sunday will discover a festive atmosphere highlighting Lanesboro’s many accommodations, both old and new. 
Black Friday

Do you look forward to Black Friday each year?
