  • Nobody would guess her line of work

    Jeff Olsen|Dec 10, 2022

    by Jeff Olsen Almost 75 years ago, there began a long running popular TV show called What's My Line? The panel would try to guess a contestant's gimmick, endeavor, or line of work. Please meet Elizabeth Hendrickson, a young lady who possibly might be an educator, a dance instructor, a nurse, or a fighter pilot. The sky's the limit. Let's skip the questions. Elizabeth works in a prison and who would have guessed that? The 2009 Roseau High School graduate probably never would have imagined that... Full story

  • Coming Home to Roseau After Almost A Lifetime Away

    Jeff Olsen|Dec 10, 2022

    by Jeff Olsen For Neil Elsmore last weekend, it was returning to Roseau, a place he lived just briefly, maybe a year at the most, and marveling at the town he'd heard about only from his parents. Steve "Elsy" Elsmore and his wife Paddy, an original Swiss Miss, left Roseau 13 years ago. Steve had worked as a mortician for Helgeson Funeral Chapel, and Paddy worked for Border State Bank. They now live in Esko, near Duluth, and their son, Neil, 14, plays for the Cloquet Bantam A hockey team. Neil...

  • My Love For the Summer Season in Northern Minnesota

    Dec 10, 2022

    Essay by: Kayla Warne Roseau Community School Mrs. Didrikson, Advanced English 11 It was a hot summer morning and I immediately texted all my friends. I was ready to hit the lake at 10. I got up and packed my bag full of towels, a swimsuit, sunscreen, and my water bottle. I waited for my friends, Abby and Lexi, to come pick me up and we also ran out to Kayla's to grab her too. We started the 30 minute drive to the lake, blasting throwback songs the entire way. With the way Abby was driving, I ne...

  • The Power of Hope by Dutch Sheets

    Julie Elick|Dec 10, 2022

    (Facebook "Give him 15") November 16, 2022 "My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus' name."These are the opening lines of the song, Solid Rock, written in 1834 by Edward Mote, a Baptist pastor from England. The well-known refrain states: "On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand."

  • Baby It's Cold Outside!

    Sheldon Larson|Dec 10, 2022

    Why is twenty below so much colder than it was forty years ago? It is a phenomenon that helps explain the mass migration of mainly retired people to warmer climates in the winter. Snow birds as they are called are either unable to handle the cold or are smart enough to know they don’t have to. Most likely a combination of the two. Meanwhile the rest of us with brain frost tough it out and actually enjoy the nice days and read a good book while looking out the window once in awhile. It is now less than two weeks until the shortest day. The s...

  • No Need For Woke Exasperation

    Jim Jenson|Dec 10, 2022

    Historians long considered the first Thanksgiving to have taken place in 1621, when the Mayflower pilgrims who founded the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts sat down for a three-day meal with the Wampanoag. Quote, “November 26, 1789, the United States observed a day of Thanksgiving declared by George Washington in celebration of the new Constitution.” How did the Indigenous people fit into this equation of the first United States observed day of Thanksgiving? In 1621 this was an unknown, unclaimed land that has had many small and big wars fou...

  • Changing Seasons

    Shelly Nelson|Dec 10, 2022

    Tis’ the Season once again! No, not that season. The illness season. If your family has been affected by any of the major players this year already, you understand the season. This year seems to be a real doozy! They all seem to have their impact in different ways each year, don’t get me wrong- maybe it’s just hitting home to us this year, as it is having a big impact on many aspects of our overly busy life. As the lil’ is older and taking on many more extra-curricular activities; mom and dad ar...

  • When the Chips Go Down

    Tom Palen|Dec 10, 2022

    The other day I overheard two ladies' conversation in a restaurant. They were discussing (gossiping) the possible consequences of a third person's actions. One of the ladies used the term, when the chips are down, which refers to a difficult situation. It seemed to me she used the idiom out of context. Perhaps she meant to say, let the chips fall where they may, meaning to allow events to unfold naturally and accept what occurs. I couldn't correct her without seeming like I was eavesdropping on... Full story

  • God Cares For Us Through One Another

    Pastor Joe Elick 1940-2021|Dec 10, 2022

    "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength. Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12;28-31) This is strong stuff and we need help in doing this. The trip-up word here is, "all." God says, "All," and the best we can do is some. In fact, if we're honest, many times we don't even do it. Love doesn't sound dangerous until you've tried it. Dangerous. Perhaps when it comes to the... Full story
