  • Madi Pulk is a lifesaving big sister

    Jeff Olsen|Apr 18, 2020

    by Jeff Olsen They never saw it coming, a tragedy in the making - not a car accident, but a near drowning one mile north of Strathcona. It was just after 5 p.m. on Monday, March 30, and nothing beats running along a ditch pretending the ice chunks flowing by are fish. Andy and Heidi Pulk's five-year-old twins, Henry and John, full of life, were running along towards a big culvert a little more than an eighth of a mile from their farmhouse. For a while, the boys were accompanied by their sisters...

  • Write On "Lost" at Shopko

    Apr 18, 2020

    by Megan Mooney, English 7, Mrs. Didrikson I'm going to be telling you about a very embarrassing story that happened to me while on a family trip this summer. My immediate family (brother, sister, mom, and dad) and I, went to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, because my brother was looking at a college there. My family and I toured some of the college, and my brother stayed with some of the current students attending it. While he was hanging out with college students, my family and I went sightseeing...

  • Seven Wounds

    Pastor Dave Peterson|Apr 18, 2020

    Easter week is over but I want to share with you some of my message from Easter or as I call it, Resurrection Day. When you ask most people of faith they will surely be able to tell you the basic meaning behind Easter. Jesus was crucified, buried, then resurrected. All of this to take away our sins. I want to share with you a deeper viewpoint. Over the years I have heard hundreds of Good Friday/Easter messages that focus on the seven things said by Jesus while he was on the cross. I want to share with you something new; seven times Jesus bled....

  • 2020 Egg Take Operations Canceled Due To COVID-19 Social Distancing Protocols

    Apr 18, 2020

  • Coronavirus, Kiss My Proverbial Old Ass!

    Jeff Olsen|Apr 18, 2020

    Don't you feel better already thinking sentiments like that. I sure do. My sweet old mother, a saint of a lady with extremely fast hands to slap us, used to remark about taking a PTA sponge bath when she was up here visiting. We didn't have a shower because was no running water. PTA represents parts of a female's anatomy. I bet you can guess all three of those body parts. Today, we will cover several important topics of interest - Guns, toilet paper, face masks, along with Harry S Truman. Since...

  • Essential, Nonessential, mask, no mask, 6, 3 or 13 feet apart

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Apr 18, 2020

    I've been trying to live by the 'one day at a time' motto for awhile now. I think it probably goes back to when Kevin and Dyan passed away. it made me realize that no matter how hard you try to control or worry about a situation, you can't change or control it. Thus is why I found it best to try to live life one day at a time. I've been trying to keep the same mindset to deal with the Coronavirus, but I'm struggling. Everywhere you look and everyone you talk to it's all you see and hear....


    Apr 18, 2020

    by Priscilla Krahn, Warroad First off, yes, I know there’s a lot of uncertainty, and grief, and anxiety, and stress. I could make a list equally long of stressful things in life, but let’s focus on the encouraging thing. 1. I’m encouraged with families. I feel like every day, I’m hearing about families working through school and employment trouble together. I’m SO encouraged by all the families growing closer through this time. 2. I’m encouraged with church. Yes, I know many church buildings are closed, but THE CHURCH is not closed, and... Full story


    Pastor Joe Elick|Apr 18, 2020

    Have you ever read or heard a statement that stopped you in your tracks, took up immediate residence in your mind and continues to create an echo in your heart that reverberates out through your life? This happened to me recently, but before I get into what's gotten into me, I'd like to offer a couple of examples out of my past. Words that stuck. The first one goes back more than fifty years. It came from the lips and heart of President John Kennedy. Here was his challenge to America: "Don't... Full story
