Area residents will get their first look at the new Rushford-Peterson school this month, and Superintendent Chuck Ehler is excited to show off the district’s new building.
  • Ten years ago southeast Minnesota was hit with record rainfall impacting many towns in the area, Rushford being the most severely hit. The flood of 2007 left residents without drinking water, a usable sewer system, power, or use of their phone. The flood destroyed equipment in the AcenTek office and cell phones also did not work.
  • The Rushford City Council approved a motion not to extend the contract with CEDA (Community & Economic Development Associates) for economic consulting services for the upcoming year.
  • Budgeting and number crunching were the main topics of the August 9 meeting of the Rushford Economic Development Authority (EDA). 
  • After six months of service, Peterson Councilor Jake Sandeno submitted his letter of resignation at the Aug. 9 city council meeting. Sandeno recently accepted a job that would require a move from Peterson and render him unable to fulfill his duties. 
  • Judge Matthew Opat ruled in favor of the Rushford-Peterson school district last week ending two years of complaints and an eventual lawsuit on behalf of Glen and Denise Palecek.
  • Fillmore County’s commissioners held a brief meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 8. 

    Highway engineer Ron Gregg and Highway and Airport office manager Pam Schroeder came before the board with a resolution to accept a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for pavement improvements at the Fillmore County Airport and for producing an airport master plan for the county airport.

  • The City of Rushford Village Council’s frustrating relationship with McHugh Excavating is coming to an end. 
  • The experience of a lifetime: Part One
    The most fun I have ever had was going to Costa Rica with the Rushford-Peterson Spanish Club. Not one picture can showcase the beauty and diversity of this country. Our Spanish Club was blessed to have a phenomenal Costa Rican tour guide, Jose, who did everything in his power to show us their way of life and all the country has to offer. 
  • Root River Floral celebrates five year anniversary
    Cindy Thesing hopes the anniversary celebration of Root River Floral on August 14 goes as well as her initial open house. “I had no idea what to expect that day five years ago,” she remembers. “Not many people knew me. We weren’t downtown then, so you kind of had to look for us. I wasn’t sure if anyone would even show up.”

  • Montini Café reopens for one-day event
    The Montini Café, a source of food and fellowship for flood victims and relief workers, is reopening for a one-day commemoration of the 2007 flood. The August 20 event will feature a short program, entertainment and, of course, food at St Joseph’s Catholic Church.
