A long load, requiring the temporary dismantling of street lights and disruption of traffic, traveled on Highway 71 through Wadena Thursday afternoon. According to Jared Borth, project coordinator for Perkins...
Hobbies come in all shapes and sizes. Some people hunt, some fish, some like to shop, while others enjoy golfing, knitting or cooking. If you are Jim Childers of Nimrod,...
I do not smoke or drink coffee so every once in a while I hop onto www.pinterest.com and call it my "Pinterest at work" break. If you are not familiar with Pinterest, it is an online place to share craft, decorating, food, travel, clothing, hair and makeup — basically anything.

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.

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.
I knew being a rancher (and I use that word loosely) would be hard. I knew death would be part of this venture; I'm all too familiar with the circle of life. I thought I was ready...I was wrong.
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.
