Glancing at the top stories in the Star Tribune in the break room the other day, I came across a truly frightening headline. No, it wasn’t a catastrophe like an...
Everyone is a photographer nowadays. Even if you don’t have a fancy new camera, you probably have a cell phone with a built-in camera. It’s never been easier to take...

You can always depend on your car to get you where you are going – that is until it breaks down. When it does break down, getting it back on...
Raising children is an amazing experience. It certainly is not easy, it involves a lot of pain, sacrifice and hard work, but it is worth it. When your children are young, it's hard to imagine loving them any more than you do. Yet as the days, months and years go by, you realize that you really do.

We try to make them happy.
It's 9 p.m. and getting dark. The road we've been following through the desert is getting narrower and rougher, and our shiny, red convertible is getting all dusty. We haven't seen a sign, house or another road in hours. We started the journey with no plan and without thinking things through. The road looked interesting and we'd never been on it before. Not only did we not know where we were going, but we didn't really care at the time. As long as we were having fun, who cares where we'd end up? Besides, when you're going nowhere, any road will get you there.

I can't believe it's all over. After looking forward to Christmas for so long, it now seems strange to be done with it all for another year. Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. It's fun picking out gifts and trying to surprise people. It's exciting getting everything ready in preparation for the perfect holiday. Christmas dinner is always delicious, and opening presents is even better. Yet, as great as getting gifts is, it's even more satisfying giving them to others.
Megan Friedrich, a senior outside hitter, and Megan Kokett, a junior libero, were both named to the Little Eight All-Conference volleyball team for Brandon-Evansville. Kinsley Randt, junior setter; Caroline Jansen, junior outside hitter; and Emma Friedrich, sophomore middle hitter; all received honorable mention after the team finished the season 5-5 in the conference, good for a third place tie with Rothsay and Battle Lake.
