  • Chatfield Center for the Arts welcomes new director full of ideas to utilize center

  • Kingsland board looking  at special education contract
    The Kingsland School Board, during its regular meeting Wednesday, Jan. 21, heard a recommendation from the district’s special education committee for obtaining special education services through the Southeast Minnesota Education Consortium (SMEC). 
  • History continues to be written at Spring Grove Communications

    There was a time that phones were connected to a wall and were on a “party line” — meaning they shared the line with other households each having their own distinct set of rings. Times progressed to houses having private lines and if a person wanted a little privacy during a phone call, they had to have a long and stretchy spiral cord so they could sneak into another room or to a set of stairs to get away from others. People could only be contacted when they were at a home. Times have drastically changed and now people can be contacted practically everywhere via cellular phones.

     
  • Bulldogs down Chatfield, tie in Riceville

  • Vix scores 600 career coaching wins
    The Rushford-Peterson boys’ basketball team has reason to celebrate after the Jan. 13 win against Southland. Not only did the Trojans beat the Rebels handily and earn their 12th win of the season, but coach Tom Vix won the 600th game of his coaching career. 
  • Boys wallop Waukon, hold off Lyle/Pacelli
    The Spring Grove boys (13-2, 10-1 SEC) sprinted past Waukon in a non-conference contest last week before fending off a late rally by Lyle/Pacelli. Just after this edition went to press, the Lions hosted sub-section rival and state-ranked No. 3 Rushford-Peterson. 
  • Something I thought was never possible has happened. I have been reading the sports pages in the daily newspaper. Well, I don’t read the whole sports section, but I have become interested in reading whatever the writers are saying about the Gopher women’s and men’s basketball teams.

     
  • Proponents and opponents have already lined up on the proposals by DFL state senators in Minnesota and President Barack Obama to make tuition free for community college education as long as students meet certain criteria, such as reaching a certain grade point average and staying in school for two years.

     
  • I finally gave up my old LG cell phone when it no longer kept a charge in the battery. It worked just fine as long as I was “plugged in” to the charger, but that kind of defeated the purpose of having a “mobile” phone. I had that phone for many years, resisting the urge to upgrade to a smart phone.
