100 years ago (1913) A near fatal accident occurred near Lake Itasca when two men in a horse- drawn sleigh came upon a "bunch of deer." They hollered at the deer and as the deer began to run, the horse team began to gallop. A sharp bend in the road threw the sleigh box from the runners, the sleigh and the two male occupants striking a tree, rendering Mr. Frankenberry unconscious. "Mr. Pierce was cut up some about the head, but the force of the blow was across his breast. "Both men were helpless and Mr. Frankenberry did not recover himself for nearly an hour.

Elementary students have been creating Valentines for Veterans for over 15 years at Park Rapids Area Schools. These second grade students created special valentines last week. On the back of each valentine was a special poem written for the veterans. "My Valentine" I made a valentine, so different and new. The heart isn't all red, but red, white, and blue. It's real patriotic And real loving, too. I almost forgot; I made it for you! - Clare Miseles

On Monday Representative Ron Kresha, R-Little Falls, officially introduced HF933, a bill with wide bipartisan support and a number of DFL co-sponsors that would promote existing tax credits to businesses in Greater Minnesota. "Far too few small businesses in Greater Minnesota are taking advantage of these angel investment tax credits," Kresha said. "In 2010 and 2011, just 10% of the businesses who received the tax credits were from Greater Minnesota. These tax credits were design to boost businesses in all of Minnesota, not just the seven-county Metro area.
