    Setting the record straight
    Two weeks ago, the Montevideo based American Legion Riders were pictured in the paper giving a $250.00 donation to the Flags of Honor which is sponsored by the Montevideo VFW. It should be clarified that YES INDEED the American Legion Riders are a definite part of the American Legion Family and contribute to numerous veteran- and community-based organizations and causes throughout the year. The Montevideo Riders are the largest organization of its kind in the state of Minnesota and are proud to be a part of the American Legion family.

    Thanks to the community
    As the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child,” or in our case, it takes a county to make a successful fair and successful it was! It was so great to see all of the people enjoying the fair. Mother Nature even helped us out with beautiful weather every day.

    Summer vacations
    Have you had your summer vacation yet? It’s not too late. Many have not. Please take time to plan at least one day with your family and friends to celebrate the great times that can be had with family and friends. Summer is too short to just let it get away.

    Higher budget fair paid off
    Thank you to the people of Chippewa County and surrounding Counties. Thank you for supporting the new and improved Chippewa County Fair. The fair board has worked very hard all year to bring change and improvement to the county fair. The change required a lot of planning and we developed several written plans to navigate our way.

    I was watching CNN as they were doing a special on Beyonce, this was shortly after a piece had been done on the 50th birthday of Michelle Obama.

    Extremists in our government
    The demographics around the country have changed; and the extremists in the Republican Party see the presidency as out of reach.
