Let it snow

Robbie Tuesday, working for Daryl’s Custom Landscaping, plowed mounds of snow in the alleyway between Third and Fourth Street West yesterday afternoon. If they hadn’t already done it last week, people around town broke out the shovels and snowblowers yesterday morning after several inches of the white stuff fell here Saturday.

Canadians third at home tourney

Alex Higginbothan of the Wayzata Trojans battled with Fort Frances Canadians Jordan Sinclair (#8) and Ryan Shortreed (#7) to get the puck out of the netting behind the Wayzata goal here Sunday afternoon. The puck spent more time tangled on the other side of the twine, though, as the Canadians coasted to a 6-2 victory for the bronze medal at the Gus Lindberg Memorial Midget ‘AA’ tournament.

Eyeing ornaments

Jenny Moorman of Baudette, Mn. checked out some tree ornaments made by local artists as she enjoyed a cup of cider Friday during a Christmas open house at the Fine Line Art Gallery. Located at 529 Mowat Ave., the gallery offers a variety of gift ideas made by district atists.

Visit with Santa
