Moondance Jam 2015 was epic. I had never been before so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I have heard many horror stories about WeFest being full of drugs, alcohol and sexual abuse, and I hoped that Moondance Jam would not be the same. To my relief, Moondance Jam was nothing of the sort. My friend and I arrived to the grounds of Moondance Wednesday evening and met with her husband and some other friends. We did have a few drinks, but nothing crazy. Hairball was playing Wednesday night and it was with great anticipation that I walked down to the concert area for their show.
Years ago, I had a friend who was a bartender and liked to experiment with different mixes. I remember going into his bar and asking him to whip me up something a little sweet and a lot feisty. He took up the challenge and created this cocktail, which he called Fun Drink No. One. The flavors are explosive, yet not too sweet. It quickly became a favorite of mine and I hope it will become one of your favorites too. Enjoy! Fun Drink No. One Makes one cocktail • 3 oz. Stoli raspberry flavored vodka • 1 oz. cranberry schnapps • 3 oz.

A funnel cloud was spotted in Verndale at 6:20 p.m. June 29, according to the National Weather Service in Grand Forks. "The entire sky was rotating," said Travis Hensch, a Wadena man who saw the storm. Hensch was driving through Verndale when the storm approached. He said he could see the line of clouds coming, lightning, rain and dark skies.
Moondance Jam 2015 will be my first ever. I am more than a little excited about the experience. I have been looking forward to this for months and now the final countdown has begun. Just seven more days. I have heard so much about these summer festivals. Most of my friends told me I should go to We Fest, but country music isn't really my scene. I am a rock girl, through and through. So, Moondance Jam is much more up my alley. And this year's lineup promises to make me a fan for life.
This Fourth of July, my family and some friends are going camping, RV style. Normally we stay home and have a golf tournament followed by a feast, prepared in a fully stocked kitchen. With a limited amount of cooking space, we have to get creative with our holiday dinner. This recipe, courtesy of Allrecipes.com, is a perfect side dish that can easily be cooked over a grill, freeing up much needed space within the camper. Enjoy! Grilled cantaloupe Makes four servings • 1 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cubed • ½ c. honey • ¼ c. butter • ⅓ c.
10 years ago Excerpts from the June 30, 2005 Pioneer Journal • Storm cleanup continues Cleanup efforts continue after a storm swept through Wadena June 20, but no cost estimates have been made. In Wadena, major cleanup was completed by the end of the week, but city employees will continue working on other cleanup, said public works director Ron Bucholz. A brush pile was created at the old airport for people to bring brush and tree stumps. The city is responsible for parks, streets, alleys and boulevards. Storm cleanup put other city work on the backburner.
