Business Professional Association (BPA) members from Wadena-Deer Creek High School recently completed their annual Empty Stocking project. A total of 270 toys were collected. Mrs. Smith's second-grade class collected the most toys with a total of 67, followed by Ms. Berg's with 31 and Mr. Savoie's with 24.

Question: What are the differences in the new youth driver's license laws? 15 year old farm permit user, provisional 16 year old driver's license through age 18. Please include how many non-related passengers they can have and what times of the day they can drive. This is a good refresher to the parents with teens this age.
Wijunjon, Pigeon Egg Head to you, was handsome and fearless, someone the Assiniboine Nation could be proud of. He was a warrior without peers. The scalps of his victims swung by the dozens from his doeskin clothes. His father was a chief. When Indian agent Major Sanford invited Pigeon Egg Head to accompany him to Washington to represent his tribe, he agreed. It was an honor.
Question: I'm wondering, is the use of blinkers a state law or only an optional courtesy suggestion? It seems to me that the use of cell phones has increased, the use of blinkers has decreased. Also, if it is a law — in changing lanes or making a turn, at what point should the blinker be put on (how far ahead of the turn?) Thank you!
According to an article published in a 1927 edition of the Pioneer Journal, the first meeting to seriously consider the improvement of roads was held in Wadena in 1912. It was attended mostly by automobile owners. A year later, the auto owners met again, this time in Sebeka, and took the first steps to arrange a systematic road building program for the entire county. In 1915, it was announced that the Jefferson Highway would pass through Wadena and in August of that year $1100 was raised by public subscription and spent in improving the road approaches to the village of Wadena.
