The Day All Hell Broke Loose! (11/22/05)


The fall of 1940 was a warm one. In some ways similar to the fall of 2005.   With gardens still yielding vegetables well into October, winter seemed far away.

By midday November 11th, some areas of southeast Minnesota topped 60 degrees, but a huge storm was just to the west. Here in the Land of Rocori, the day was one where kids going to school wore little if any jackets.

CORNER COPY... Cold Spring Record (11/24/05)

Sometimes we hear conversations where the topic is how our world has changed . . . never would any from our generation have ever thought to take a gun to school, much less use it there. Never did we dare talk back to dad or mom . . . either way we dealt with dad. We would have never entered another person’s home (whether under construction or not) and take things that didn’t belong to us.

Today’s world seems much different. Why? Probably because when we were young and growing up there were morals and values distilled in us by our parents, grandparents, or anyone else who would qualify as being older than us.

We remember sitting together with our family and eating breakfast – every day – whether we had school, or not; whether we were off to church, or not; or if we had plans with friends, or not – we always sat at the table with our family for breakfast. When we were home for summer vacation we ALWAYS sat down at the dinner table for a meal with our family. Nearly everyday, the rest of the year, we sat down at a specific time to eat a meal with our family in the evening; some called this meal dinner, our family called it supper.

River Lakes vs Shakopee – GIRLS HOCKEY

Its a brand new season for the girls hockey team wearing the Stars jerseys. They start the season at home against the very tough Shakopee Sabres. River Lakes would have to play catch up throughout the game. Their first period play showed some great intensity.
It's the second period of the game and the girls trailed by one. The second period would go the way of the Shakopee Sabres as they would pull ahead from the River Lakes girls .

The final period would be the best that the River Lakes Stars would play all game. They would not allow another goal in the final frame. It was a good start for a very young team. There is great expectations that the team can build and move forward to great things this year.
