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. Wadena County is in the high-risk zone for radon, an odorless, colorless and tasteless gas, which can find its way into your home anywhere there is an opening between the home and the soil, said Karen Nelson, Wadena County public health director. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer.

10 years ago Excerpts from the March 11, 2004 Pioneer Journal • Hockey goes to state Sixteen years. 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.

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."

As most of you know, I have three African-American children through adoption. My ex-husband and I both grew up in liberal communities and our family has been blessed with very little racism in regards to our children. We have lived in communities where no one blinks an eye at seeing two white parents with three black children. Although it is rare, perhaps it is because of this that it is always so surprising to me when someone in makes a racist comment towards one of my kids. This is a relatively new experience for us since moving from Alaska to Minnesota.
