•Luverne High School senior Lauren Christensen joined a select group of former Cardinal girls’ hockey players during the course of Thursday’s home game against the Sioux Falls Flyers. When Christensen lifted a wrist shot into the net to account for Luverne’s first goal in a 7-5 win, she became the fourth LHS player to enter girls’ hockey program’s 100-goal club.
Natalie Domagala, a 2005 LHS graduate, is the program’s all-time leader in goals scored with 272.

•Josh Winkelman, a seventh grade student at Luverne Middle School, is being published two times this winter. His short essay, “The Song of the Country,” is included in the junior high edition of the February 1997 High School Writer. Later this year, one of his book reviews will be published in Voices in the Middle, a publication for middle school English teachers. Teacher Elizabeth Petersen said students use journals to do what she calls quick writes. To stimulate thought, she reads a poem or a short story to the students. They listen and start writing, responding to what they have heard. Petersen said she is continually amazed at the way the students articulate their thoughts.

•The new Chevrolet for 1947 is now on display at Connell Chevrolet here.
E. L. Connell, owner, states that this new model has been made bigger and better looking than the 1946 model, and is offering a greater measure of big car quality at lowest cost than ever before.
Combining all the popular features of the 1946 model with a number of added features, both inside and out, this newest Chevrolet must be seen to be appreciated, Connell said.

•During the month ending with Wednesday, the city of Luverne had paid a total of $4,563.23 as freight on coal shipments for that period for the municipal light and power plant.
This represents about one-half the cost of the coal, the price ranging close to $7.87 a ton, whether it is purchased at the head of the lakes, from the Southern Illinois coal fields or elsewhere. The freight rate form Duluth is $3.37½, and from Southern Illinoi $4.79½, but the difference in freight is made up by a greater charge for the coal secured at Duluth. The kind of coal being bought is two-inch screenings.
On January 10th the coal bunkers at the municipal plant were virtually empty, but since that time a total of twenty-four carloads has been received, and it is on this number of cars that $4,563.23 has been paid for freight. It is estimated that the coal now on hand will last the city for about two months.
