  • On the long Road in the UP to Help Others

    Jeff Olsen|Aug 19, 2023

    by Jeff Olsen Wyatt Crist probably has two percent body fat - if that - and could easily run a marathon. That's even after a 10 day, 1,200 mile bike ride through the Upper Peninsula in Michigan. In late July, the incoming Roseau sophomore, who ran cross country for esteemed Warroad coach Rick McBride and then played on the Roseau Bantam A hockey team which earned fourth in state honors last winter, had an explanation on how he managed to compete for two schools in one school year. "I was...

  • Roseau Couple Is Living the Good Life and Much More

    Jeff Olsen|Aug 19, 2023

    by Jeff Olsen Some like it hot! Jaeden Johannesson, a 2015 Roseau High School graduate, was reached in Fort Myers, Florida, where he and his girlfriend, Emily Skoglund, also a 2015 RHS grad, are enjoying the change of scenery. For the past two years, they haven't had to use a snow shovel, worry about the wind chill, or scrape frost off their windshields. Just an occasional sunburn! "This September, it's going to be two years," he said, adding that they are bartenders at Miller's Ale House, a...

  • Distracted by a "Pit Fall"

    Julie Elick|Aug 19, 2023

    The following was taken from "Streams in the Desert"; by L.B. Cowman: Rehearse your troubles to God only. Not long ago I read in a paper a bit of personal experience from a precious child of God, and it made such an impression upon me that I record it here. She wrote: "I found myself one midnight wholly sleepless as the surges of a cruel injustice swept over me, and the love which covers seemed to have crept out of my heart. Then I cried to God in an agony for the power to obey His injunction,...

  • Life Comes Down to the simplest equation

    Jeff Olsen|Aug 19, 2023

    On Tuesday morning, I came walking through SuperOne in Roseau, which is a daily experience during these months of July and August. Lately, I buy a single item or two. If something is forgotten, it's not a big deal. I'm always back the next day if I remember to bring my list. What I look for, besides a good deal, are young kids and their parents, usually the mothers. Once I threw a fit in a grocery store back in 1948 or 1949 and my mother only smiled. Everyone probably thought, "Doesn't she have... Full story

Gardiner, Montana is where we chose to spend some time this year. Our rental has elk and fluffy cows that come into the yard and a hot tub out on the deck. You can say we are all a bit excited! We are just a couple minutes from Yellowstone National Park, too. They say...No vacation to the Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton National Park...

  • When You See...

    Sheldon Larson|Aug 19, 2023

    While sitting on the porch at the shack up at my dad’s the other day I heard what sounded like the hum of a very large plane off in the distance. The hum turned out to be a huge hornet. It flew in just a few feet from me, grabbed a fly out of midair and left in the direction it came from. Over the next half hour or so it made five more trips grabbing a fly each time. Bees are a lot like people. As long as they are busy all they ask is to be left alone. When one shows up in the boat when miles from shore they are not in a good mood and are troub...

  • The "Word" Was Out

    Pastor Joe Elick|Aug 19, 2023

    The "Word" was out: Jesus was back in Town! Back in Capernaum, to be exact, for Capernaum had become the home base of his ministry. His return had caused no small stir in the community. In all probability he had come home to rest (presumably staying at Peter's house) but this was not to be. "So many gathered that there was no room left (there was no room to receive them), even outside the door..." Mark 2: 1-12, Verse 2. This return to Capernaum was not the first time, however, that his presence...

  • 18th Annual Femme Fatale

    Aug 19, 2023

    The 18th Annual Femme Fatale was held August 5th at Clear River Campground in Beltrami Island State Forest with 225 riders participating. The theme for this year was "Pirate" and so many excellent costumed characters made an appearance that it looked like the movie set of Hook! The much beloved Roseau County Masons/ Shriners were on hand with the SnoNoble Machines on display for our viewing pleasure. Decked out in aprons, they whipped out an amazing walleye fry to feed the masses. This is an...

  • There are many ways to to Can Tomatoes!

    Aug 19, 2023

    Preserve summer's best-and that fresh-garden flavor-by canning tomatoes for the year to come. In the cooking world, we often treat tomatoes as a vegetable even though they're actually a fruit. Canning is a culinary exception. Because tomatoes have high acidity, they are canned like other fruits in a boiling-water canner with only a splash of added citrus or vinegar (but you will learn how to pressure-can tomatoes, too). You can process them whole, halved, or stewed. We'll also show you how to...
