  • Harmony woman enjoys many  ‘days of fun’ during 100 years of life
    Ollie Piehn of Harmony has known great love and wonderful friendship during her 100 years of life. After celebrating her milestone birthday on July 6, Ollie claims she doesn’t feel any older.

  • Local churches send representatives  to visit sister congregations in Colombia
    America is rich. It is a rich, developed country where the people live in style…compared to people in countries like Colombia, South America, that is. However, one does not understand the depth of this statement until personally traveling to such a country. Recently, a group of Southeastern Minnesota residents learned just how vast the difference is between the United States and the Republic of Colombia. 
  • Local skater spends summers on ice
    Barbie, Ken, the family dog…all should learn the routine, set to Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon,” according to Spring Valley figure skater Laci Skifter, whose trophy shelf is lined with awards from her recent rink accomplishments.

  • As my wife and I were taking shelter in the concourse at Target Field Monday, July 14, a man with damp clothes said, “The Metrodome wasn’t so bad now was it?” His comment made me pause, but didn’t change my mind that Target Field is far superior to the indoor multi-use stadium that has now been torn down. 
  • I was so excited to be part of the Fillmore County Relay for Life event again this year. Held at the Harmony Community Center, I was busy setting up with my family during the afternoon of Friday, July 11, and we stayed busy with our task until 8:30 p.m. when the Balloons to Heaven were released and we relaxed and had fun through the early morning hours of Saturday, July 12. 
  • Spending time with my grandchildren also means spending some time with the Disney Channel, which is one of their favorite channels on television. If they are going to watch television, we figure it is a better option than most channels in the lineup.

  • This summer, there will be two 4-H Day Camps scheduled for third to fifth graders to attend to engage in educational and recreational activities as well as meet with other 4-H members around the county. The day camps are scheduled for the two Tuesdays following the Fillmore County Fair, which are July 29 and Aug. 5. The timeframe for these camps is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
  • All parents along with their students, grades seven to 12, who intend to participate in extra-curricular activities this upcoming school year are invited to the annual PAC (parents, athletes, coaches) meeting and Kingsland Athletic Booster Club (KABC) grill-out Monday, July 28. 
  • Keep the Pool Cool – fundraising event for Spring Grove SWIM Center
    What better way to spend hot summer days than in the cool refreshing water of a pool. Spring Grove is lucky to have a wonderful pool facility that interests people of all ages with the zero-depth entry pool, exciting drop slides, long, winding flume slides, a “ship” toddler slide, and a diving board for doing dives and flips. There are also plenty of places for relaxation under the large umbrellas. When hunger hits the busy swimmer, they can visit the Snack Shack for delicious snacks and treats to be re-energized for more swimming fun.
