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.
A small flock of hooded mergansers jump off a roadside pond Wednesday afternoon near Henning. The colorful fish-eating ducks are one of the first gamebirds to return to Minnesota in the spring.

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.
John's Car Care tow truck operator Randy Schmitz pulls a cable out to a black Nissan Frontier truck that left Highway 71 and rolled over in a ditch Thursday morning six miles north of Wadena. Heavy winds, snow and slippery driving conditions existed at the time of the accident. No one was believed to be injured in the crash.
