The Adrian wrestling team should receive the opportunity to rewrite recent history on Saturday. If the seeding process for the Section 3A Team Wrestling Tournament proves to be true, the second-seeded Dragons will meet No. 1 Minneota in the section championship match Saturday in Redwood Falls. If...

I never look forward to visiting a nursing home. Despite the fine efforts of local staff, these places simply are not attractive to me. From time to time I have considered the rest appealing — meals delivered, TV in one’s room, naps at any hour, time to read, but a day or two of that would be...

Well, I believe this weekend will be my hockey fan “coming out party.” The youngest of the Peterson grandsons plays on the mini-mites team for Redwood Falls, and they’ll be in town this weekend taking on the locals. It’s almost un-American not to be a hockey fan in Luverne, and while I never played...

With three weeks to go in the regular season, I’m interested to see how the remaining schedules play out for three area girls’ basketball teams. Wins have not exactly been piling up for the Luverne, Adrian and Ellsworth programs this winter, but there are times when the statistics can be misleading...
A Luverne High School senior made history at the Blue Mound Ice Arena Jan. 19. Senior Makayla Sterrett became the all-time leading point-producer during the course of a thrilling come-from-behind win over the Marshall Tigers that evening. Needing two points to surpass her first cousin, 2005 LHS...

Question:  I encountered a funeral procession along a two-lane highway (no roads entering this section of highway) and the lead funeral home vehicle had a light bar on the dash flashing an alternating red and blue light. Everyone on the highway going opposite the procession pulled over to the...
Rock County Opportunities Inc. clients and staff toured the Rock County Star Herald office in Luverne Wednesday, Jan. 20, to meet the news and production crew. They were photographed and interviewed and saw how a news story develops from a conversation into a headlined article on a page. Pictured are (front, from left) Eleanor Dicks, Casey Van Engelenhoven, (back) Nate Schloendorf and Arielle Carlson.
Newspaper offices were at one time fascinating places to visit — with noisy presses, oversized rolls of paper and ink by the barrel.
