Firemen dealt with a blaze March 29 in Wing River Township after power lines were taken down by a wind-toppled evergreen. Todd Wadena Power was contacted to turn off the power and the fire was put out before it could spread very far. The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Verndale Police Department, the Verndale Fire Department and Nimrod Forestry.
If you were a Minnesota Twins baseball fan last year you probably came away from it feeling like you had been on a roller-coaster ride. There was so much about the Twins that was new and exciting going into the 2015 season. After a sharp dip in expectations to start the season the ride went up, up and up. By the All-Star break in July the Twins had everyone convinced they were playoff material.

Anyone with doubts about the worth of Adrian Peterson to the Minnesota Vikings should have kissed them goodbye last Sunday. Peterson scored 12 of Minnesota's 20 points on a pair of touchdown runs in a 20-10 win over Atlanta. He also rushed for 158 yards on 29 carries and caught two passes for 18 yards. If he had been packing a musical instrument, instead of that odd-shaped brown ball, he would have been called a one-man band. Clearly, the Vikings run with much more authority than they pass.
