  • Caleb Eide named honorary fireman
     

    Chatfield’s newest firefighter is brave, he’s tough and he’s got what it takes to face peril. Did we mention, he’s 7 years old and three and a half feet tall.

     
  • Knee high by the Fourth of July…You bet!!
     

    The old saying, “Knee high by the Fourth of July,” hasn’t pertained to the stands of corn in southeast Minnesota for many years. During most of our recent growing seasons, the maxim is more like “head high by the Fourth of July.”

  • Aggen gets winning hit for Central in win over PEM
     

    The Central Legion baseball team racked up 13 hits against Plainview-Elgin-Millville, but it was two hits in the bottom of the seventh that were needed to give the locals an 8-7 win a week ago Thursday.  The Falcons scored six runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and another run in the bottom of the sixth but gave up three runs in the fifth and four more in the top of the seventh as PEM tied the game, “forcing the Falcon heroics” in the bottom of the seventh.

     
  • Twins Talk: Quite an endeavor by Trevor Plouffe
     

    Trevor Plouffe has developed into a solid major league third baseman. Trevor was drafted in 2004 after an All-American high school career, chosen in the first round (20th overall) by the Twins as a shortstop. Through the years as he learned his craft in the minors, he was occasionally called up to the Twins when someone was injured. But he would bounce around, playing every position — from short to third, second, first, and even a stint in the outfield.

     
  • Big guys, little guys busy on the diamonds

        There were a half dozen Little League baseball games last week while area men enjoyed their third week of action in the Canton Men's Softball League.

    Earlier this month I had an opportunity to listen to a speech that State Sen. Jeremy Miller (R-Winona) made during a breakfast luncheon. The second-term legislator reviewed the bills that came out of the recently completed legislative session. He also provided his thoughts on where our state was going and issues that need to be addressed in upcoming sessions.

    In the spring of 2013, I wrote a column suggesting the time was right for Minnesota to legalize same-sex marriage. After it was published, I was prepared for repercussions.

    I’ve been staring at my computer screen for about a half hour, trying to come up with some entertaining story, some piece of wisdom or even words of nonsense that could at least fill the page.

    “The Chosen Valley Chamber Music Series will include three concerts that be held in the Legion Room of the Chatfield Center for the Arts (CCA) on Sunday evenings, July 26, August 9 and August 16,” said CCA volunteer Tom Hilgren. “Chamber music is music that is performed by a small number of performers, traditionally in a smaller performance space — a chamber, rather than a concert hall.  It is generally associated with classical music, but a broader definition often includes other genres as well. The July 26 concert, for example, is excerpted from a jazz concert performed in Rochester last February.”

    The 23rd annual Habitat 500 Bike Ride will soon be coming through the Spring Valley area as 120 cyclists and 33 volunteers begin the 500-mile journey through southern Minnesota on July 12.

     
  • On Sunday, June 28, the Rushford Municipal Airport will be a flurry of activity, as the third annual southeast Minnesota Jumps for Hope skydiving event will take place. More than three-dozen persons have signed up to jump out of a plane at over 10,000 feet for a breath-taking tandem skydiving experience. The first jumps will take place around 8:30 a.m. and continue throughout the day.
