The Farmer's Cooperative Co. purchased D. C. Behren's Store building, organized and opened it for business June 3, 1919. Shares were $10 each and it was incorporated with $10,000 and annual sales of $60,000. Shares are still only $10, and you must have a share to be a voting member...

Slices of Life: Winding down at the end of the season
Let's face it, being a parent can be taxing. Being a parent with kids in school can be exhausting. We start out strong in September — am I right? Lunch accounts are in the black. Healthy snacks line the shelves of the pantry and fridge. A dozen or more sharpened No. 2 pencils...

Guest Commentrary: The last of the lasts
I chided myself with trite warnings I'd heard from elderly ladies years ago who'd gazed wistfully at the barely contained chaos swirling around my feet: "They grow so fast. Time flies. Enjoy these days. Before you know it ..." As much as I tried, somehow I'd blinked. On Friday, May...

slices of life: Outworking worry
Unfortunately, I'm more familiar with embarrassment than the Seven Wonders of the World. Actually, it's more complicated than one list of seven wonders. The original list was compiled eons ago, in years B.C. Most of those wonders don't exist anymore. Since then, various entities have...

Off to college? What you need to know
Didn't get into your preferred college? Keep in mind that you can transfer. It's much easier to gain admission to another school if you have a decent freshman year record. Why? Because at every kind of college, many first-year students drop out. I started at one college, but decided...

Getting ready, being ready, baby ready
The little pink bundle we carried home from the hospital but a blink ago is soon going to be a mother herself. My baby girl is having a baby girl. It seems too good to be true — and scarier than heck, all at the same time. I'm the one who's scared, not her. Well, maybe she's...

From Voyageurs, to Grand Portage, to the Mississippi and Pipestone, our state is blessed with exceptional national parks sites which are seeing record numbers of visitors — and for good reason. They offer pristine landscapes, opportunities to hike, fish, camp and recreate.
