WORTHINGTON -- A little more than two months ago -- April 27, to be exact -- the redesigned Daily Globe made its initial appearance. It marked the culmination of significant work by many here at the newspaper -- as well a bit of feedback from selected folks from the general public -- and we were confident that the new look would be greeted with no shortage of enthusiasm (though we also knew, of course, we wouldn't -- couldn't -- please everyone). For the most part, that assessment has been accurate.
WORTHINGTON -- For Andrew Korta, 10, and his dad, Tom, the first 30 miles were relatively easy. The rest, though, were a challenge, but the father-and-son team was not to be denied.
WINDOM -- Ron Schilman wasn't even as hungry as he could be, yet it didn't matter. Schilman, the winner of the inaugural Riverfest Pie-Eating Contest in 2012, defended his championship against four foes Saturday afternoon inside a jam-packed River City Eatery. Schilman downed three full pies over the course of the competition to edge out fellow Windom resident Brandon Ambrose. Schilman was having little difficulty digesting his second victory in as many years.
WORTHINGTON -- The Minnesota West Foundation is off to an excellent start with its fundraising for the Center for Health and Fitness. The facility, located on Minnesota West Community and Technical College's Worthington campus, will benefit from a $55,000 gift from the Kruger/Nasers family.
WORTHINGTON --For the 42nd year straight year, The Achievement Center is hosting a rummage sale that will serve as a key source of revenue for the organization. The sale is scheduled to begin May 10 -- the start of the event was pushed back one full week Wednesday because of a need for donations and inclement weather that has slowed organizational efforts -- and will continue through May 25 at the Worthington Hockey Arena. The sale could also be extended additional days, TAC Manager Don Brands said. Hours for the sale will be from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
WORTHINGTON -- No, it was not a bad dream. It really did snow on the first of May. Residents of southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa, just three days removed from temperature readings of 70-plus degrees, had their winter coats and gloves out once again Wednesday, clearing snow from their vehicles and shoveling sidewalks.
WORTHINGTON -- It was time for a makeover at the Daily Globe. For the first time since May 1997, this newspaper has a new look starting with this weekend's edition. Our new redesign represents the work of many people over many months, and our end goal has consistently been to deliver our readers a vastly improved paper in numerous ways. "After 16 years, we knew it was more than time for a redesign," Daily Globe publisher Joni Harms said. "With all the changes going on in today's world, we thought it was time to present our print product in a new and exciting way.
Editor's note: This is the final part of a five-part series related to the history of Avera Medical Group Worthington. WORTHINGTON - To Treva Marks, the new ambulatory surgery center at Avera Medical Group Worthington is all about offering a choice. Marks, who joined Avera in Worthington six months ago, is the Surgery Center Nurse Manager inside the new facility, which opened on Ryan's Road earlier this month.
When leaving for work Wednesday morning, it was impossible not to notice the devastation surrounding my home. Several thoughts came to mind, including: No. 1: Thank goodness our home was unscathed, and that we weren't hurt. No. 2: Quite simply, an overwhelmed feeling of "wow." No. 3: My wife (a teacher) and our kids are going to be out of school for more than just Wednesday. No.
