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...

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...

May was and is and still will be an extremely busy month. This seems to be the case every year and this year is no exception. Even if the weather does feel more like April! Of course, this time of year that can change almost overnight and we could...

Good luck to the area high school track and field and golf athletes, who will soon be involved in your post-season action. It's indeed time for outdoor sports enthusiasts, beginning with the 2018-19 end of school-year activities! And if you listen...

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 some cases. Yes, it's a milestone, but hopefully only one of many yet-to-come achievements in the...

Our April weather for the most part has often seemed more like March from time to time and the May Day weather forecast more like April Fools’ Day. That has been a trend for the last two or three years -- winter and spring are pushed back because...

Having to put in a new sump pump over the weekend was a highlight of our Easter vacation. And let's just say that our basement floor is now quite a bit shinier than it was before its unexpected bath. But we were at least able to find a brand new...

There are two historical events to mention in this week's short column. The first one is that record-breaking snowfall last week in our local area and the second achievement is pro golfer Tiger Woods winning the Masters for the umpteenth time after f...
