    It can be dizzying keeping up with the upcoming changes for Mabel-Canton and Southeast Conference football. The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) doing away with traditional high school football conferences in 2015, 2016 and presumably beyond is certainly a major alteration; the final SEC grid season of 2014 will be different as well.

  • Families are busy with sports year round. That's why Winneshiek Medical Center Clinic (WMC) in Decorah and its satellite clinics in Ossian and Mabel offer reduced-rate athletic physicals year-round to all area athletes for only $30.

They include Sara Lind, Kourtney Coyle and Emily Brumm.
