WORTHINGTON — If the local Honor Guard had a motto, it might be similar to what’s inscribed on the General Post Office in New York City: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
In the case of the veterans, however, it could read: Neither snow nor blizzard nor rain nor sleet nor gale-force wind nor cold nor heat stays these men from honoring their fellow veterans.
SIBLEY, Iowa — Sometimes, fighting for our country isn’t enough.
Even beyond the combat zone, members of the VFW strive to do good things for fellow veterans and citizens on both a community and national level.
Graffiti on the Worthington VFW sign appeared overnight and was first reported Monday morning. Because the sign hangs high over the sidewalk, the vandalism was likely done from the roof of the building. The nearby Elks Lodge also had graffiti marks, a source said.
PERHAM — Thrust suddenly into a corner, with its back against the wall, the dilemma facing Worthington’s VFW baseball team late Thursday afternoon was simple: win or go home.
After suffering a sudden and disheartening 5-4 loss against Grand Rapids in the first round, Post 3958 regrouped and responded just hours later with an 8-3 win over Perham to avoid the nearly five-hour trek back to Worthington and to extend its stay at the state tournament for at least one more day.
Worthington will face Maple Grove at 10 a.m. today. With a win, it will play at 7:30 tonight. A loss means elimination.
