Wadena-Deer Creek Superintendent Virginia "Ginny" Dahlstrom reads the Dr. Seuss classic, "Green Eggs and Ham," to second-graders Wednesday as part of the "I LOVE TO READ" Month activities. Students enjoyed the reading, often joining Dahlstrom in reciting the lines from the book. Dahlstrom shared with students her dislike for broccoli when she was a little girl, but today, as a grown-up, she loves it. Dr. Dahlstrom also read to kindergarten and first-grade classes.

Perham High School math teacher Alyssa Rosenow met President Barack Obama recently when he flew into the Air Force Base at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport. Rosenow described the opportunity as "eye opening." She said, "When the presidential plane landed, the President jogged over to us and greeted us with nothing less than energy and a warm, personable attitude. He delivered handshakes and high-fives and even passed out a Challenge Coin to a Vietnam Veteran."

An angler was accused of cheating at the Park Rapids American Legion Community Fishing Contest on February 2. "It's unfortunate," said tourney organizer Jerry Benham of the alleged cheating incident. The case has been turned over to authorities, he said. Sheriff Cory Aukes escorted Tom Mead of Long Prairie from the ice Saturday afternoon after anglers reported him cheating. Mead said he was stunned at the accusations. Alexandria residents may remember Mead.
