Pasta with Bacon and tomatoes Serves four to six • 4 slices of bacon, diced • ½ c. chopped onion • 1 teas. minced garlic • ¼ teas. crushed red pepper flakes • 2 cans (14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes • 1 lb.
15 years ago Excerpts from the March 25, 1999 Pioneer Journal • First guests check in at Wadena Humane Society shelter They're a bit ahead of schedule, but the Wadena Humane Society shelter has its first guests. Nine dogs arrived from Otter Tail County on Friday and were placed in the runs. Though the building isn't completed and volunteers had planned to paint a second coat, need overcame interior design. Carol Schraaf, Otter Tail County's Humane Society director, called the shelter volunteers for assistance.
I really enjoy potato salad, but I get bored with the same recipe. This variation of potato salad is crunchy, firmer, and includes bacon - who doesn't love bacon? Red Potato Salad Makes 12 servings • 2 lbs. scrubbed red skinned new potatoes • 6 eggs • 1 lb. bacon • 1 onion, finely chopped • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped • 2 c. light mayonnaise • Salt and pepper to taste
10 years ago Excerpts from the March 18, 2004 Pioneer Journal • County takes aim at radon The second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States could be filtering its way into your house.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer.

State competition was a long time coming for the Wadena-Deer Creek boys hockey team, but they finally can lay some ghosts of hockey past to rest. They've been close before in Section 4A playoffs, but fell short of their dream of making it to state. The Wolverines hockey team had made it twice to the championship game of the section playoffs and lost both to Fergus Falls back in 1993-94 and 1999-2000.
I love spicy food, but my kids do not. This recipe for Hobo Hot Dish balances my need for heat with their mild tastes. It is really easy to make and so delicious.

Last week, I took my daughter, niece and nephew to see 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman.' I thought the kids would enjoy it, even if I didn't. I was therefore surprised at how much I enjoyed this fun family film. The backstory of the film is that Mr. Peabody, a dog, was never adopted from the animal shelter and instead works hard to educate himself, becoming one of the smartest beings on Earth, and adopts Sherman as a baby when a judge says, "if a boy can adopt a dog, I see no reason why a dog can't adopt a boy."
