Duncan Slick climbed the ladder to the top of his loft barn, saw the John Deere blanket, the John Deere stuffed toy tractor and the tractor pillowcase. The little 4-year-old stopped for a second and took it all in. “Oh my God,” he said with about the biggest smile a 4-year-old can flash, and the...
New Hampton’s City Council decided last week that it would eschew hiring a new street superintendent and, instead, will create a public works director position. The idea, Councilman Bruce Diiro said, was that having someone oversee the street, wastewater and water departments would help with...
We’re not sure, quite honestly, if Beth Henningsen is going to like this story. She’d rather this tale be about the volunteers, the donors and the recipients of an organization she started … basically anyone but herself. But to understand Heavenly Days Dream Rooms, to recognize why it’s so...
It’s nothing fancy, but that sign, well, it’s a staple of Alta Vista. For 42 years, Dean Folkers “changed out” that sign that sits on the “four corners” of the little town in northern Chickasaw County. Sometimes the sign touted upcoming events in the “Friendly Town,” other times it celebrated an...
