  • Gopher volleyball team in three-way tie for TRC lead

    Not only did the Chatfield volleyball team go 2-2 at the Cannon Falls tournament this past weekend, but they also split a pair of Three Rivers Conference matches in a very busy week.  The team lost to Wabasha-Kellogg (3-0; 25-22, 26-24, 25-19) on Tuesday, but then rebounded with a win over La Crescent (3-0; 25-23, 25-12, 25-17) on Thursday.  The team is currently 9-1 in TRC play, tied with Wabasha-Kellogg (8-1) and Caledonia (8-1) in the loss column, but one game up in the win column.  The gals overall record is 15-10, with just two weeks of the regular season left to play.

  • My family is a venison-eating family. Actually, we’re a family with a lot of boys, which means that if meat is available, we consume it in large quantities. And since meat isn’t cheap, hunting is one of the ways we put meat in our freezer. We’ve come to rely pretty heavily on venison for ground meat, roasts, and even our homemade spaghetti sauce and chili.

  • Our newspaper received a request last month from two University of Minnesota scientists who are doing research on the origin of iron ore. The two, including Dr. Calvin Alexander, who is a well-known geologist in this area, wanted photographs of iron ore mining, which was prevalent in the area, particularly around Spring Valley, from 1942 to around 1970.

  • The blue jays of the yard were having a collective cow. A collective noun for those birds is a party. A party of jays is appropriate at times, but this wasn’t one of them. Their calls were of outrage.
