  • Local FFA chapter named Outstanding Chapter

     “I am proud of my students because they put a lot of time and effort into their projects and judging contests. It takes a lot of time, studying and practicing to make it to state and to place as a finalist in your project area or top five team. That requires time and effort above and beyond what is asked for from their advisor. These are the students who are logging hours all year round,” said Chatfield High School FFA advisor Stacy Fritz.

  • Kingsland grad biking across  country to support cancer research

    “A few months ago, I was looking for some motivation to help get me through a particularly long stretch of homework.  I was brainstorming some adventures I could go on this summer, and I thought of riding my bike across the country,” said Minnesota State University, Mankato, student Kvanli.

  • Pam’s Corner and Convenience  receives new look, new branding

    On May 2, 2005, Pam Brand took over ownership of The Corner Convenience Store, which was a locally owned business for 25 years. The store was then dubbed “Pam’s Corner” by Brand, who had been employed at the store for 22 years before taking over ownership. At the same time, Brand reestablished the station as a Clark station. Now 10 years later, Pam’s Corner is making another big change as they are switching from Clark to Gulf Oil, a corporation with over 3,300 locations in 31 states and the Caribbean.

  • Monday morning as I was flying from Pittsburgh to Minnesota, I was writing this column, editing news stories, formatting photos and, if I had time, designing pages for this week’s edition. In other words, I was at my desk, which just happened to be a laptop more than 10,000 feet above earth.

  • After the first couple of days in Bangkok this winter, I realized I had not really brought along clothes that were practical for the real tropics. I looked at all of the things I had unpacked and realized I had not been really thinking about Bangkok; I was ready for a Minnesota summer. After all, that was where I was when I packed and in the hubbub of this last winter, I will just say I wasn’t paying enough attention to what I was doing. As a result, I had very few pieces of clothing that would be truly comfortable in the typical heat and humidity of Thailand.

  • Minnesota State FFA Secretary Valerie Earley was the main speaker at the Spring Valley-Wykoff FFA banquet last week.
