Tom VanErp's Wadena-Deer Creek cagers left their best basketball at home Dec. 29 as they fell to the Fergus Falls Otters 43-33 in the Otter Holiday Classic. "We didn't play with a lot of energy for most of the game," VanErp said. "We missed many easy shots, especially early in the game." The Wolverines were rusty after a 12-day layoff. They connected on only one of their 13 three-point shots on the new Kennedy Secondary court and made just 11 of their 47 field goal shots for a 23.4 percent clip.

Skylar Schwab will grow up hearing a fantastic story. Tri-County Hospital's first baby of 2011 arrived Jan. 1 and the baby girl was given her name for an amazing episode that occurred seven months ago. Skylar's mother, Samantha, was in the third month of her pregnancy when a twister roared over the Troy Manselle farm two miles southwest of Bluffton on the afternoon of June 17. Skylar's parents, Samantha and Gene, and Samantha's cousin, Manly Beach, were in the house when they saw the twister approaching.

Viking fans will always remember 2010 as the year the wheels fell off -- but take heart, we are not alone. Some teams have had fantastic seasons. Other clubs are just wondering what went wrong. Last year, the Vikes were in the penthouse. This has just not been their year. You can say it started in August when Brett Favre had to be coaxed into camp like a donkey with carrot (or a lot of lettuce) held just in front of his nose. Camp had barely started when we started hearing about Percy Harvin's migraines.
A farmer near Henning was looking out a window of his home one night during a full moon recently and realized one of his fields was "crawling." He knew what the four-legged invaders were and before he was done he had counted 24 of them. Whitetail deer and wild turkey are pretty bold this winter as the snow amounts increase. Both can be a problem for livestock growers. DNR wildlife manager Rob Naplin of Park Rapids has been monitoring snow depths. Snow in the forested country around Park Rapids is around one foot. The snow depth in the Wadena area has been near eight inches.
