Notes from the Small Pond: Here's what happens
One year, I covered both the Democratic and Republican state conventions. Amazing. Mirror-image events, candidates and supporters, echoing each other like wolves howling in a gymnasium.

Here is some more information I received from Elaine Crouch on the Violet Cemetery just northeast of Wright on East Mud Lake Road: The Violets, James O. and Angeline Trepanier, lived there in the 1890s. They had three children who died in 1897, so were likely buried there. When James...

slices of life: Returning home
We appreciate their efforts. But we also fully appreciate there will be disarray. And a surprise or three. Sometimes the surprises are even good ones. They did not disappoint. First, the disarray: Of the three bathrooms they had access to (this does not include the backyard), only...

>First, from Elaine Crouch: "I think the Violet family had a hotel in town, and some of the family lived nearby, on what was the Frank Hanson farm when we were young. They had at least two small children. One of them, a young boy, wandered down the hill to what was the "sinkhole"...

Slices of Life: Razzle-dazzle berries
You could hardly tell if they were alive, but I had faith in those little brown and green clumps. I plopped them in a bare spot in the garden and waited for my bounty. And waited. The first year generated no harvest. Zero. The plants were alive and growing. They just weren't producing....

Friends of Animals: A valuable resource to our county
To that end, FOA would like everyone to know that even though the doors will be closed for now, we will still need to be fundraising. Why? Because it is our intention that this will be overcome.

Minnesota Finnish-American group to meet
Few Finnish events are scheduled during August, but here are a couple if you need to get your "Finnish fix" this summer before regular activities start up again this fall. The summer state meeting of the Minnesota Finnish American Historical Society (MFAHS) is Saturday, Aug. 4 at...

Guest Commentary: One-way ride, right at home
A singletrack trail is designed to keep you moving on a bike, even when you're head-up. It meanders along the hillside with sharp switchbacks that keep you engaged. It rises and falls like a roller coaster. It's honestly one of the best biking experiences you'll ever have.

Will CEC hockey tradition continue?
Now, with the departure of coach Kevin Smalley, the 2018-19 Lumberjacks will have their third head coach in the last three seasons — an unheard of turnover in one of the state's most storied programs.

It was only three short years ago that we thought Wrong Days would die, but with the help of many, many volunteers, especially Linda Kalli, the chairperson of this event, it is now well on its way to many more years of success.

What's in a name?
Names are chosen carefully and with great attention to detail. What sort of mean nicknames could kids in the schoolyard find to taunt little Dicky with? Will a weird spelling haunt a kid for life? Does the name of choice rhyme with any swear words? Do initials spell out anything with...
