Central Lakes College women's basketball coach Brian Voigt enters his first season as head coach with two things working in his favor. The first is that as assistant coach for men's basketball coach last season he had the opportunity to see the women's team pay on a nightly basis. The second is that he is coaching a team that is driven, and wants more success after a trip to the Region 13B tournament last season.
Not one but two angels were in the parking lot at Super One recently. I cannot walk without my walker unless I use a grocery cart at the store. I tripped somehow and fell flat on my face. Two "angels" came to my rescue, picking me up, loading my groceries into my car. They didn't leave until I reassured them I had not hit my head and felt I could drive the short distance home. Thank you doesn't seem adequate. I'm so grateful to the two angels in the parking lot. Katy Badgerow Baxter

It's no secret that nature helps soothe a troubled mind. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources advises spending an afternoon at a state park with a veteran this Veterans Day where the "awe" factor increases as the stress level decreases. "A state park visit can provide a healthy dose of nature therapy," said Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota State Park and Trails. "All park visitors benefit from time outdoors and for those exposed to a lot of stress, the benefits can be especially acute."
