WORTHINGTON — As always, fingers are crossed for good weather as Spomer Classics hosts its 14th annual Classic Car Show ‘n Shine this Saturday. Highs on Saturday are expected to be in the low 70s, and there’s not a significant chance of precipitation at this point. That’s in stark contrast, of course, to what has been the case for much of this spring.
The License Access and Public Safety Act — known more informally as the Freedom to Drive Act — has been a hot topic this session in the Minnesota Legislature. It’s also been a popular subject of conversation in Worthington.
WORTHINGTON — For Lecil Arends, every birthday she celebrates marks a new milestone for her and her family. Turning 105 years old, after all, is a special accomplishment reserved for a select few. So what does Lecil credit for her remarkable longevity? “Faith,” she said during an interview in her Ecumen Meadows apartment earlier this week. “And my kids.”
WORTHINGTON — Live music is coming to this year’s Nobles County Fair. Not only that, but a nationally known country artist will be taking the Worthington Arena stage.
WORTHINGTON — John Koller has always loved to write — a trait not always common in a math teacher. Koller, who’s in his 21st year at Worthington High School and taught 10 years before that in the Sioux Valley-Round Lake-Brewster district, had been writing math-related material for years, but had something different in mind for his latest effort — a novel.
WORTHINGTON — Four additional bands have been tabbed to join headliner Parmalee at the 20th annual Windsurfing Regatta and Music Festival this June. This year’s Regatta event, set for June 6-9 at Worthington’s Sailboard Beach along Lake Okabena, will also feature musical acts County Line Drive (6 p.m. June 7), Good for Gary (8:30 p.m. June 7), MoJo Monks (4 p.m. June 8), Capitol Sons (7 p.m. June 8) and Parmalee (9 p.m. June 8).
BREWSTER — Chad Kremer is quick to acknowledge that he has gotten help along the well in strengthening his construction business. Kremer, who launched Chad Kremer Construction in the fall of 2016, is grateful to others in the building trade who given him both experience and positive word of mouth. Kremer stays busy with his construction business year-round and said his volume of work has continued to grow.
WORTHINGTON — A band that has charted six Billboard Country Airplay Top 40 singles and received multiple Academy of Country Music Awards and Teen Choice Awards nominations is headlining this year’s Windsurfing Regatta and Music Festival.
WILMONT — Rita Vaske knows full well that, at any time, she’s probably far from the most popular person in Wilmont. That comes with the territory, she believes, of being city clerk/treasurer for the Nobles County community. Still, she enjoys the opportunity to help residents with a variety of needs and shape positive change for many.
SIBLEY, Iowa — Given the frequently humorous banter shared around the table of Brad Willemssen’s kitchen recently, the three individuals who coordinate WeCare of Osceola County events care about each other a great deal.
