Pioneer Editorial: Cheers and Jeers
Cheer: Local girls make generous donation
Maggie Buckanaga, 12, and Mariah Dobson, 11, put a twist on the traditional lemonade stand enterprise last month. The girls donated their proceeds to the Northwoods Coalition for Family Safety shelter. The girls' generosity earned them the thanks and congratulations of the shelter board, director and guests.
Cheer: Cleaning up
Faculty and staff from Schoolcraft Learning Community, TrekNorth Junior & Senior High School, Voyageurs Expeditionary High School and St. Philip's School undertook a series of community service projects last week, including pulling and bagging weeds.
Jeer: Strange encounter
A Winona, Minn., woman came home Sunday to find two teens, a boy and a girl, playing dress-up in her bedroom. The girl was trying on the woman's clothes and jewelry, while the boy watched. When they saw the woman, the girl took off the clothes and jewelry and the pair fled out a side door.
Cheer: Breaking ground
After long planning and searching for a suitable tower site, staff and board member of KAXE/KBXE broke ground last week for the new radio tower to serve the Bemidji/Bagley area and points northwest. About 8,000 residents in the area have no access to public radio. The community public radio station will give them a new take on news, features and music.
