If you’ve been in Ben Franklin on Jefferson Street in Wadena, you’ve seen they are proudly displaying their laundry – and for a very good cause. During the entire month...
Are you like me, too frozen to put much thought into Valentine’s Day plans this year? Or maybe you just aren’t sure what would really blow the socks off your...
If you are like me, you have a freezer full of meat that your fall hunters and/or winter fishermen brought home or maybe it is game you bagged yourself. I have grouse, pheasant, wild turkey, fish and deer wrapped up all nice and neat waiting to be used for dinner that night. Since I grew up eating wild game, I've obtained quite a collection of recipes and ideas on how to cook it.
Newlywed couple Kayla (Wegscheid) and Adam Hanson welcomed identical triplet daughters on June 21. Their names are Brooklyn Hope, Mackenzie Faith and Zoey Grace. Maternal grandparents are the late Greg Wegscheid and Brenda (Skalman) (Wegscheid) Coile - both graduated from Wadena High School and their great grandmother is Nellie Wegscheid. Odds of having identical triplets is anywhere from 1:10,000,000 to 1:100,000,000.
Every year on the last day of December many of us pick a few things to improve starting the next day. We are only two weeks into 2014 so New Year's resolutions are (hopefully) still going strong. I've picked a few of the most common - drop a few pounds, eat more fruits and vegetables, get to the gym more and to be diligent about bulking up our savings account.

Back in October I was in Alexandria for a training class. Before heading home I looked at my cell phone and saw I had forgotten to turn the ringer back on. I had four missed calls from my dad. Instant fear set in. What was wrong? You don't call someone four times if everything is okay.
You’ve probably walked or driven by 220 Jefferson Street South, the building nestled between The Uptown and Commercial Apartments, hundreds of times, and if you are like me, you didn’t...
Nothing sends shudders down my spine and puts me into a cold sweat faster than having to speak in front of a crowd. The bad news is that I have a big event coming up and there's no avoiding it. Trust me, I've tried. I'm the matron of honor in my best friend's wedding. Bowing out is not an option, she won't let me. She's already told me that if I don't show up, she will find me and it will not end well. I'm thinking her threats aren't idle. She means it. The bride said she is actually looking forward to my speech. Fool.
Have you ever wondered what your DNA could tell you? Not only what your true nationality makeup is, and I mean down to the actual percentage, and what your specific...
