Soaring high: Some people give their time. Some people give their money. Paul Bringgold does both.
The former owner and president of First National Bank of Cannon Falls recently gave Cannon Falls School District $1.16 million. That’s in addition to hours and hours dedicated to growing that district school’s foundation. Bringgold also has been generous to Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical.
He calls schools the foundation of a town and a state. We agree, and add that good citizens like Bringgold are the bedrock of a community.
Soaring high: Red Wing firefighters responded to three house fires this week, one Tuesday, one Thursday and one Friday. Conditions certainly weren’t prime for fighting fires — windy, bitter cold, slippery — but the department extinguished each blaze quickly and safely.
