Jim and Betty Williams have a house for sale on Eighth Street Southwest in Wadena but they had expected to close a deal and sign some papers before any new tenants moved onto the property. It hasn't quite worked out that way. Five baby cottontail rabbits have appeared in a hole in the backyard.
Moorhead veteran Joel Rovang ran away with the eight-kilometer title Saturday in the 25th running of the Otter Tail Lake Chase. The 45-year-old Rovang turned in a winning time of 29:05 to pace field of 144 runners. Finishing second was Jason Toth of Cornwallon, N.Y. with a time of 31:16. Fergus Falls' Nathan Jensen finished third with a 31:50 effort. The Top 10 was rounded out by Wahpeton's Keirann Smith (31:54), St.
Kevin Tumberg and Jake Seelhammer did it with the bats and Kyle Dykhoff tossed a five-hit gem Friday night as the Bluffton Braves whipped New York Mills 12-1 in Hi-10 League baseball action. Tumberg and Seelhammer each came up with a pair of singles, a double and a triple for the winning Braves. Dykhoff and Mark Sweere each scored two runs.
Wadena-Deer Creek boys' hockey coach Dan Savoie returned from a trip to Finland to find his team's hockey facility destroyed by a June 17 tornado. Tuesday morning, June 29, Savoie had a group of volunteers helping him sift through the debris of the Wadena Area Community Center for any useful equipment the tornado did not carry away. The question of whether or not the Wolverines will have a hockey program this year has been decided in Savoie's mind. "We're going to pick up the pieces like everyone else," Savoie said.
The Wadena-Deer Creek Legion suffered a 7-2 loss to Staples-Motley Monday night and ended the regular season with a 6-6 record. Kyle Dykhoff's WDC crew will now enter district play Monday with the most likely site being Menahga. Park Rapids and Staples-Motley are considered district tournament favorites. The tournament is slated for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The district winner will advance to Division II state tournament play at Bob Marshall Field in Dilworth July 30-Aug. 1. Jordan Riewer tossed a five-hitter over seven innings to lift Staples-Motley over WDC Monday night.
