JACK HITTINGER COLUMN: Santa gives gift of confidence to Bemidji State hockey team heading into holiday break
I met Santa Claus last weekend at the Sanford Center. He gave me exactly what I wanted Saturday night: An overtime-free hockey game. That’s right, readers: As the final seconds ticked off during Bemidji State’s 5-1 victory against then No. 10-ranked Denver that night, I became...

Hittinger column: The ‘new guy’ checks in
Oh, hello there. I don’t think we’ve met. Well, maybe that’s not true. I’m sure you’ve seen me around at various sporting events, at Bemidji State or otherwise. And my byline has appeared in this space many times since April, when I started working here. But my face has...

If the current weather trend continues, this month will go down as one of the coldest Octobers on record in Minnesota. This comes after last month was one of the warmest Septembers. Who knows what we can expect in November. Surface water temperatures have cooled into the low 40s...

Paul Nelson fishing column for Oct. 16: Anglers still hoping for some fall fishing
