Brown dog whimpered as fall pheasant hunt closed
His full name is Bud Grant. No, I'm not talking about the iconic Minnesota football coach and well known hunter. It's the brown dog I hunt with and call to him daily as Buddy.
I always wanted to hunt with the real Bud Grant. Knowing that it was highly unlikely I ever would I gave my dog that name. Now, if anyone asks who I hunt with I can say Bud Grant and watch their eyes light up (or roll).

New year, new potential - ringing in a healthy 2018

. . . another woman's treasure
If you've driven north of Windom on Highway 71, you can't miss the decorations in the Myrt and Arnie Quiring yard.
Their home is the former Lasting Joy Church.
The Quirings have a small manger scene set up next to their garage and a barn door decorated with the word "JOY" leans against a nearby tree.
However, the two items that draw particular attention are a gate and an old grain wagon. Myrt and Arnie shared that those two ag items have some local history.

A special night in Mt. Lake during annual holiday tournament
Mt. Lake Area boys basketball coach Shawn Naas has seen his share of talented players come and go in his 23-plus seasons on the Wolverine bench.
A handful of his former players have gone on to coach at various levels.
But last Wednesday marked a first for Naas, which is pretty rare considering he is one of the more-veteran coaches in the entire region.
Last Wednesday marked the first time that a former Wolverine player had coached against Naas as a head coach.
