Before we close the books on Memorial Day 2016, I would like to extend a thank you to Lois Nelson. It wasn’t until Memorial Day this year that I learned of Lois Nelson and her commitment to playing taps as part of military honors at local veterans’ funerals for the past 20 years. A few years ago I...

If you haven’t notice already, today’s edition of the Star Herald has a number of mentions of the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. Today’s editorial reminds us of the many blessings we have as free citizens because of the sacrifices that tens of thousands of American servicemen and servicewomen have...

You know, sometimes no matter how well you plan something, sometimes things can go ... well, not as planned. Such a scenario happened to our daughter a couple of weeks ago. Emily, who lives in Des Moines, Iowa, was hosting a Garth Brooks concert gathering for her brother and his wife and her sister...

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I am here to tell you this old dog can still be trained.

A few weeks back I wrote about 4-year-old Owen’s debut on the ice at a local hockey tournament. Owen is the youngest Peterson grandson, and I must admit I was impressed by his drive, determination and apparent enjoyment of the game. We also took in a Sioux Falls Stampede game that same weekend....

On Monday I attended a video presentation at the Palace Theatre by Roger Brooks. The video screening was made possible by Gary Papik and the LIFT Executive Board. It was kind of a continuing education piece on the ongoing “destination branding” process Luverne is undertaking. The video was titled “...

It’s been a couple of weeks since the youngest Peterson grandson took the ice for his first mini-mite tournament. Tournament maybe isn’t the right word because they didn’t keep score; there was no goalie in the net because there was no net. Come to find out that for the mini-mites instead of nets...
To the Editor: This is a reply to Rick Peterson’s question as to why the red line in hockey is red. The line has two purposes: first, to divide the rink in half; second, as a line to help with a game delay called “icing.” It started as a solid line, but with the invention of black and white TV, the...
