For 79 years, the Red Wing Noontime Kiwanis Club has been recognizing 4-H clubs in Goodhue County, selecting and announcing a 4-H "Club of the Year" every October at the Kiwanis 4-H Club Banquet. Kiwanis members choose the 4-H Club of the Year based on each club's submitted application and evaluation of the club's activities throughout the year. The esteemed award is given to a 4-H club that has shown exemplary involvement of all its members, development of its youth leaders and generosity to its community.
Numbers can say a lot. Minnesota families have adopted 12,500 children from the state's foster care system in the past 20 years. With more children in our system in 2016, families adopted more foster children — 868 — than any other year over the last two decades. Adoption is cause for celebration, not only for the newly created families but for all of us in Minnesota. More than anything else in their lives, children need safe, stable, nurturing families. That is what enables them to learn, gain confidence and grow into healthy, productive adults.

Because Veterans Day falls on the weekend in 2017, the closure schedule is different than in typical years. Government agencies and related businesses will be closed Friday, Nov. 10, to observe Veterans Day, which is Saturday. Schools are in session. The U.S. Postal Service will observe the holiday on the actual date, however, so first-class mail will not be delivered Saturday and post offices will be closed.

Kelsie Ward knows that she's a logical person, one who plans things out. To her there it was logical, not simply impulsive, for her to decide one day that "I did not want to pursue what I was pursuing" in college. The Cold Spring, Minn., native, who was in residence during October — the final month in the 2017 season — at the Anderson Center, was a senior at the College of St. Benedict when she realized that her degree in economics and psychology could not be the end of her education.
ZUMBROTA — Songwriter/composer/liturgist John Hermanson's melodic and lyrically driven songs weave stories that provoke questions and inspire deeper contemplation of the world and our place in it.

He is a member of the acclaimed acoustic duo Storyhill, appearing on Prairie Home Companion and Mountain Stage, and was a Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition winner.
