Lukas Seely, Mark Dawsons, Edi Zanidache and Halli Borgfjord, who have collectively performed on Showtime, Spike TV, Great American Country, the Bob and Tom Show and other comedy programs, are excited to visit the area.

A Rick Santorum supporter could buy 5.4 million of his vests from Woolen Mills, and an average student who volunteers for Barack Obama could pay their own $25,250 in college debt, and then pay $10
BEMIDJI - Villella's Bada Bing!, a notorious sports bar that opened in the Union Station building in June 2008, closed one year later, leaving the space open for the second time in three years for prospective restaurateurs. Michelle Soltis, along with her brother John, quickly took the opportunity to bring a fresh new concept to the area, opening Blue Ox Bar and Grill. The Soltis siblings moved from Fargo, N.D., to Bemidji and started work on the building in May 2010, opening just two months later in time for the summer tourist season. "There was a lot of work, so it was just initially, 'Ge
