  • Bluff Country holds hidden gem at Highland Prairie

    Highland Prairie Lutheran Church is a quiet, sacred place nestled in the hills and bluffs of northeast Fillmore County. The people who attend this small church know that. However, the beauty of this place is easily missed by those passing by on Bowl Road and nearby on State Highway 43.

  • Kiwanis members fighting tetanus around globe

    “A woman and her unborn children are protected by the mother receiving a series of three shots at 60 cents each,” explained Spring Valley Kiwanis Club member Nancy Cornell, speaking of the Eliminate Project, a collaborative effort with UNICEF to combat the statistic that seven newborn babies die each hour as a result of maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT).

  • TEC debuts new energy technology

  • Members of my family met for an afternoon in Story City, Iowa, recently to celebrate my parents’ golden wedding anniversary. 
  • The candidates taking part in a forum in Spring Valley last week — the only public forum in Fillmore County this election cycle — tended to agree on most issues raised, with only subtle differences in opinion. Since the questions came from the public, it would indicate there are no burning issues that are separating citizens, or candidates, in the county. For those divisions you have to get more local to items, such as the referendum in the Rushford-Peterson school district or the actions of the Wykoff City Council regarding its previous mayor.

  • It’s likely that many Bluff Country area “transplants” have had a similar experience. They spend some time exploring a beautiful part of Minnesota and, at some point, have an “aha” when they get the idea of actually moving here.
