PIPESTONE — There’s a reason Pipestone Civil War Days is only put on every two years — it’s a massive undertaking.

PIPESTONE — The Pipestone Housing Redevelopment Authority (HRA) is weighing turning over its Section 8 housing choice voucher program, and the Worthington HRA has been identified as a potential recipient.

AVOCA — In some ways, Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church is as old as Avoca itself, as the church’s roots can be traced back to Lime Lake Evangelical Church, formed along with the town of Avoca by early settlers in 1878. At 10:30 a.m. Sunday, the church will hold its final service, closing the book on the church’s 140-year history.
