This is Fathers Day weekend, as well as Trail Days in Ipswich. Tena's nephew Zach just became a new father of a little baby girl born on yet another June holiday Flag Day, June 14. Her proud parents, Zach and Tristan Beitzel, currently live in Rapid...

Sometimes Tena points out articles that I may find interesting. Napping — that is a subject I know about! Some experts have come to the conclusion that a good night's sleep might not be all that easy for whatever reason(s) and that an afternoon...

The wind decides to blow out of the north several days in a row and then from the south for multiple days and most recently back to being predominately from the west. The bottom line though was that the area did not get a whole lot of rain during...

Tena put up a red, blue and white wind sock on a flag pole. You may have noticed the new strange flags on Monday, because that is the 17th of May (Syttende Mai). And they indeed are the Norwegian flags celebrating that country's own birthday similar...

What a difference a year makes! Last year this special edition was printed in July due to COVID-19. This is an important milestone in the life of a high school graduate and it is indeed pretty much beginning and maybe even a brand new beginning in...

We were talking about those radical temperature swings in spring and fall and they have occurred again to open May's weather. The weekend was really warm, even for this time of the year, and all you outdoor enthusiasts could get out there and do your...

April is trying to find its own identity as the month is rapidly passing by. How so? Sometimes it thinks its March and other times it provides a hint of May and this can change from day to day, as we have been experiencing lately. But almost always...

Just think how much wind energy has gone to waste the past several days, when it could have been generating electricity all over the place with even more wind towers than what South Dakota currently has! The good news was that the snow accompanied...

We might hopefully get at least a few of the showers that they were predicting a little further south. At any rate Tuesday dawned a lot cooler than the past weekend into Monday. And that wind is still a force to be reckoned with! Any rain would help...

What about that South Dakota wind earlier this week? It was surreal, good thing there wasn't any snow flakes in the air. But instead there was dust. The last measurable moisture in Ipswich only amounted to :03, not 3 or even .3 inches. That is how...

The Summit League occasionally produces an upset or two during the NCAA men's and women's national basketball tournaments and it appears that has already happened this year. But not regarding the women's brackets. The lower seeded women's teams from...

This is Sunshine Week and we all would like some sunshine for a few days, especially this year. But that obviously isn't quite what that means. Open government and transparency in our various political entities are what Sunshine Week focuses upon....

We were listening to the 70’s channel on the car radio and heard “Short People” on Casey Kasem. The song had been a hit in the top 10 for a few weeks. You could not even sing that song now. If you’re too young to remember the song, I’ll...

Is this latest iteration of February weather rather surreal? We go from where we had experienced at least 12 straight days with a below zero low in Ipswich to Monday's near 60 above afternoon high. But that was only if you could actually see to read...

Could the groundhog see his shadow? I doubt he could even see his nose in front of his face, seeing how foggy and frosty it has been lately. So we might have six more weeks of winter or we might not. Especially with climate change occurring on...

February is right around the corner, believe it or not. And one of the first things we associate with February is a ground hog for obvious reasons. And I guess there will also be a Super Bowl in early February despite the coronavirus pandemic. Our...
