WINDOM - Betty Rydell may have been billed by the Cottonwood County Fair as a "world famous yodeler," but she's quick to point out that she's probably not that well renowned. "I don't know about world famous, but I have been yodeling for a lot of years," Rydell said, shortly before she and her granddaughter, Randi Friedl, took the stage Wednesday afternoon inside the fair's Entertainment Tent. "I have played and sang in a lot places."
WORTHINGTON -- Youths in Roxanne Hayenga's "Pinterest Live" class Wednesday afternoon were enjoying the creative process of making art. "We took a glass bottle that was kind of tall, and we were supposed to glue newspaper clippings on it," explained Max Langerud, an incoming Worthington eighth-grader. "Then we took things we kind of like and glued them on the outside. After that, we put a lot of glue on the outside so everything will stay down." "The whole idea is to cut things out that pertain to your personality," Hayenga added.
WORTHINGTON — The American Cancer Society will offer its “Look Good…Feel Better” program to residents in South West Minnesota and Northwest Iowa on July 29.
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.
