Congratulations to the Ipswich Lady Tigers for their Region 2B high school volleyball win last week. Their initial opponent in the tourney, the North Central co-op, played well in a loss and both teams will return a solid nucleus next year. It is...

It seems like during a somewhat wet year there are more tree leaves than ever and even trees that were slowly getting to be half dead got a temporary reprieve this summer. There are various methods of collecting the leaves, starting with the old...

Congratulations to the cross country runners at the State B in Huron on Saturday. It turned out to be quite a decent day and the calm before the storm. From then on it's felt more like November or even December, but on the plus side it didn't...

There's a first time for everything, they say. And now this is true of the Northern State University Gypsy Day parade. That's right the parade was wisely canceled because of the winter storm that was persisting in the Aberdeen area well into Saturday...

I can't believe it! Apparently it has already become that time of the year for rapid and extreme weather changes, in transition from summer to winter. And I still too vividly recall all those late winter storms earlier this calendar year that lasted...

October, I can't believe it. Yes, it's the start of the holiday seasons especially if you wish to think of Halloween as a holiday of sorts. And the stores certainly do! We will also be ushering in pheasant hunters, which has become a holiday season...

This is homecoming week at IHS, so hopefully the weather will cooperate as well as it did for the earlier Edmunds Central homecoming festivities. That weather was awesome. But the advance forecast for Friday looks like we might actually slide by in...

The month of September reminds me of June, there's something going on every weekend. For instance we just attended the Northeast South Dakota Celtic Faire, not right in Aberdeen this year, but at the youth camp on the beautiful shore of Richmond...

The weather for Edmunds Central's homecoming picnic lunch, parade and later that evening football game versus Deuel in Ipswich was ideal, perfect actually! Not even windy! But the only bad thing was that the football team sustained its first...

One nice thing about Monday holidays is that they make the next Friday roll around a little faster and this week for sure, since it’s EC homecoming week. Congratulations to the royalty and good luck in all the activities the rest of this week....

With the upcoming long Labor Day weekend, our deadline for news and advertising content will be on Friday at 4 p.m. And it is always important to remember that our regular deadlines are always on Monday at noon for our Wednesday weeklies. Generally...

Welcome to a new school year, because it's now here. Or if you'd still rather want to say that school is right around the corner, it's now a very sharp and short corner. Of course there'll be a little interruption of our area school schedules with...

Baseball season on the local level took its final swing during the 2019 campaign with the Warner-Ipswich-Northwestern Legion baseball team attending their state tournament this past weekend hosted by Groton. The W.I.N. team also includes some...

The school year is rapidly approaching and time for the Class of 2020 to make some memories of a lifetime. It is quite a coincidence that the year 2020 will have such historical significance, the...

It is definitely that time of the year. We noticed a maple tree with hints of red last week. Stores are trying to sell school supplies. We've already experienced some cooler overnight low temperatures than normal, preceded by more rain over the...

Our area just emerged from a wet period that in some instances included too much hail. Yes, last week everyone seemed to receive ample moisture in varying amounts. Right here in Ipswich we recorded around an inch and a half in my two gauges. One is...

We had planted a small tree a few years ago and for some inexplicable reason it was one of the few relatively new trees in our entire yard that survived the horrible winter. The thing that's even more amazing was that I didn't realize that it was a...

We got another shot of overnight rain earlier this week and that was timely. Quite a few of the crops that were able to be planted are catching up with that rain, heat and humidity all factoring in. So this is definitely encouraging, barring an...

Last Saturday was a great day to stay in Ipswich and stay close to an air conditioner. Like Saturday, I'm seeing things weatherwise from time to time that kinda makes you wonder. The climate does seem to be gyrating out of control, giving us wild...

The end of June is rapidly approaching and it finally might be gradually turning hot again, according to the advance weather forecasts. So that could turn out to be really decent Ipswich Rummage Sale weather on Saturday, June 29. As long as it isn't...

As is usually the case, June is flying past quite rapidly. And various areas of the state are still seeing some spotty heavy rain showers, but nothing to the widespread extent that we measured earlier in the spring. And I guess that a trend towards...

Intermittent light rain showers started right after the Trail Days parade in Ipswich last Saturday and continued on and off all day, depending greatly on your location. But they definitely converged onto the Trail Days Arena grounds for a late...

From the Ipswich Tribune Thursday, May 30, 1935 edition LIFE IN SHANTY ON CLAIM STORY OF PIONEER LADY Part 1 Mrs. L. L. Caborn tells of Prairie Fires, Bad Blizzards and Frugal Early Life. I was certainly a very young and inexperienced woman when I...

Dear editor: I am a professor at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada, where I research rural population change on the Great Plains. It is my understanding that Edmunds County and surrounding areas experienced considerable outmigration in the 1970s...
