Collman’s celebrate century Farm on the lake

PRAIRIE LAKE, Minn. — The Collman family recently recognized as a Century Farm by the Minnesota State Fair and the Minnesota Farm Bureau. Richard, Arnold and Eric took time out to share a little bit about the “Farm on a Lake.”

The history of the Collman homestead dates back to 1916 when Richard and Arnold’s grandfather, Henry purchased the property on Prairie Lake. It was later, in 1938, that Richard’s father, Forrest came to homestead the property. “The agreement was that if my father came to homestead the property, he would inherit the land,” said Richard. “So, in 1938 our father piled everything into a car and a truck and moved to Prairie Lake from Southwest Iowa.”

The depression contributed to the move, but Richard also noted that their father liked to hunt and fish.

Forrest and his wife, Doris, had two children, Arnold and Richard. Forrest first got a job at the Prairie Lake School. “It really was a great opportunity,” noted Richard. “The teacherage was upstairs, grades 1-8 below that and the gym downstairs.

Firearms Safety Training Course Scheduled

FLOODWOOD, Minn. — Youth and adults in the Floodwood area who are interested in hunting or shooting are invited to enroll in a MN Firearms Safety Course.

Students complete the online course at HunterCourse.com at their own pace. (Students should expect that this class will require at least 12 hours to complete.) The online learning program is approved by the Minnesota DNR and provides a narrated, illustrated, and interactive online method to cover what was previously taught in classroom sessions. When the student has completed the course, they take a 50 question examination. Once they have passed the exam, they pay a fee of $24.95, and are allowed to print a voucher that will allow them to attend the two hands-on sessions.

Hands-on training sessions will be held in the Council Chambers of Floodwood City Hall (111 W 8th Avenue) on Tuesday, July 26 from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. (A parent or guardian must accompany student for the beginning of the first class to complete paperwork.). The second session (field training) will be held Wednesday, July 27 beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Students must bring the following to both sessions: article of blaze orange to wear, hat, and survival kit they make to the first class (information included online course). Students must dress for the weather – we meet rain or shine.
