Junior varsity, freshman football complete seasons The junior varsity and freshman football teams have wrapped up their seasons. Though the wins were not as many as the players would have liked, there was marked improvement in many areas this year. The JV coaches were pleased with the progress made by many players in- dividually and the team as a whole. "All season it seemed we were patching holes due to injury or illness, or because of some moving to the var- sity level," said Coach Ryan Daniel- son. "We are very proud of the way the kids responded to such challenges. We were in every game this year and now just need to build on that to learn to get over the hump and win those games." The players and coaches would like to thank the parents and fans who sup- ported them all year, and look forward to an even better year in 2012.

Popular class on raising bison scheduled in November The Minnesota Department of Agriculture's (MDA) Minnesota Grown Program and the Minnesota Buffalo Association are offering a free class for farmers and producers inter- ested in raising bison. The nation- wide demand for bison meat has skyrocketed in recent years and as a result more people are interested in raising bison, according to Minnesota Buffalo Association President Dale Rengstorf. "We've been offering this free class for two years now and it's a ter- rific opportunity for our members to share their insights on starting a herd and techniques for raising these ani- mals," said Rengstorf. "Bison are ex- tremely hardy animals making them a good alternative to other livestock. We see more and more Minnesotans raising bison in addition to carrying out their other farm activities or work- lng a day job." The "Bison 101" class will be held Friday, Nov. 25 from 2-4 p.m. at the Central Livestock Sales Barn, 34412 County Road 10, in Albany. The barn is located just off of Interstate 94 west of St. Cloud at exit 147. The follow- ing day, the Minnesota Buffalo Asso- ciation will hold its annual live buffalo auction - the only bison auction in the Upper Midwest. Although walk-ins are welcome, those interested in attending are en- couraged to register and reserve a take-home educational packet by emailing or by Calling 507-454-2828 with names of attendees. For more information on the class or the auction, visit the Min- nesota Buffalo Association website at or call 507-454- 2828. Salvation Army Angel Tree Project underway in County It's time once again to ask for the public's help in providing a merrier Christmas for the children in Big Stone County. The Angel Tree project provides gifts of clothing to children whose parents have asked for a bit of help at Christmas time. Tags with the children's age, sex, and sizes may be picked up at Cen- Bank or Minnwest Bank in Or- tonville, First State Bank in Big Stone , City, Clinton State Bank in Clinton, and Liebe Drug in Graceville. To participate in the program, sim- ply pick up a tag or two from one of these locations and purchase the items requested. Return your unwrapped gift to the location from which you picked it up by November 29. This would be a great opportunity for church groups, civic clubs, or other organizations to help a local child. Those of you who have taken tags in the past will notice that the tags ap- pear different this year. The yellow tags are for girls; the blue, for boys. Information on the tags is the same as in the past. In the event that you would like to help with the project but are unable to go shopping, you may also help by leaving a cash donation. We have a group of people who are willing to do the shopping so feel free to contribute by leaving cash. Checks may be made out to the Salvation Army Angel Tree Project. Your help in past years has been outstanding; we are hoping for the same great response this year as we do have a greater number of children to provide gifts for. If you have any questions, please call Sandy Helgeson at 273-2331. SNOWBLOWER REPAIR We have on hand.., tires, chains, belts, cables, oil and spark plugs.
