To the Editor: The Luverne Area Chamber and CVB has successfully completed the 2016 Rock River Beerfest on Saturday, Aug. 20.  With over 120 profiles of craft beer and wines, there were abundant flavors and tastes for everyone to enjoy. The day might have seemed flawless to the people who attended...
To the Editor: I am writing this letter to encourage all voters in the first and third county commissioner districts to be sure to vote in the upcoming primary.  It is very important that those of us in agriculture maintain a balanced county board.
