I don’t know about you, but I can’t remember the day I told my parents about my lifelong dream to own horses.  I was so young, I probably didn’t even know how to spell “horses” properly, much less understand the responsibility of what my dream entailed. However, I do remember the day that my...

In the middle of May, John Uecker, chairman of the Albion Township Board, sat around fewer people that could comprise a standard jury. Their goal was to get enough signatures on a petition to stop the bonding process for the $60 million combined Government Center/Tactical Training Facility – a...
“I prayed for love one lonely night; a prayer sincere, serene. An hour later as I stood in line,  I turned and faced a dream.

Leading by one stroke after 18 holes, the Buffalo boys’ golf team finished second to Alexandria in last week’s Section 8-3A tournament at Headwaters Country Club in Park Rapids. The Bison’s total of 597 finished 12 strokes back of Alexandria’s 585. The Cardinals shot an incredible 287 in last...
If one word best describes this year’s Section 8-4A baseball tournament, it likely would be “crazy.” If one word best describes the first three games of the same tournament for Buffalo, it too, would likely be “crazy.” The chaos started with No. 4 seed Buffalo winning 5-4 in its opening-round home...
It was supposed to be a down year – a rebuilding year. The impact lost from the departure of the 2018 senior class brought out the doubters, and rightfully so. Spotty pitching and defense, combined with untimely hits on offense, led to a 1-4 start, and even Head Coach Brad Zrust wondering what type...
There will be plenty of runners wearing Bison purple on the track this weekend at Hamline University – 13 to be exact.

I decided to do something goofy last weekend – instead of going out and seeing a film on the big screen, I opted to stay home and rent a movie from my local Redbox. It was definitely nice to be home...
