Seeking a third World Championship

It has been a crazy couple of months for two-time NHRA Pro Stock drag racer Jason Line. The Wright native has been tearing up the track and the most recent success began the end of July when he defeated V Gaines in Sonoma, California. He then proceeded to string together three wins in a row with wins in Seattle, Washington and Brainerd, Minnesota.

The only drawback, the rain delayed Lucas Oil Nationals in front of Jason’s home fans was finished at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Nevertheless, Jason defeated Dave River and was awarded a final-round meeting with Jeg Coughlin. Along the way to the Brainerd final, Jason also picked up a whole pile of bonus qualifying points. He was the quickest car in the first, second and third sessions with a 6.623 seconds at 208.78 m.p.h., followed by a 6.593, 210.01 and then a best time of 6.589, 209.98.

McGregor, Minn. — ,September 16, 2014
 

MCGREGOR, Minn.—Seven years ago the Shamrock Township ball field, home to the Sandy Lake Little League team, was lost to the development of a new maintenance building.

Good news for baseball fans—a new field has been constructed and is ready for family fun.

According to Shamrock Town Clerk Candace Kral, a $10,000 grant from Twins Community Fund along with several local donations helped construct a new ball field. “The Twins Community Fund was used to help pay for the fence installed by Century Fence,” she said.

Other donations included $1,500 provided by Operation Round Up (Lake Country Power Community Trust); a Black Dirt donation from Tim Turner and also use of some equipment; Dugout Benches donated by Wayne Floe of Floe International (to be completed and installed soon); and Roof construction on the dugouts by Aitkin County Sentence-to-Serve.

For the Johnston family, owning and operating a farm isn’t just a passion, but a way of life. A way of life that puts God first and foremost.

Jerry and Cora Johnston, along with their five children, recently celebrated their first batch of 60-day aged Gouda Cheese after starting a vision back in 2012. “Our goal has been to run a small-scale, sustainable, family business in farming the way God intended,” said Jerry and Cora. “We put God first in all things and seek his wisdom and guidance.”

The family farm includes a herd of grass-fed milk cows with a licensed cheese plant (creamery) on site. The raw milk is taken from the cows and turned into Gouda cheese. Gouda, or “How-da,” cheese is named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands. The cheese is one of the most ...
