This week is Holy Week.  For some that means Chocolate candy.  For others it means special services at church.  It can mean a new dress or a new suit for a child.  But these are just the trappings.  They are supposed to help us remember the deeper meaning of the Cross and the Resurrection of Jesus...

Owatonna - It took a while to happen, but the bats woke up for the Owatonna High School baseball team at the right time. And when it did, the result was demoralizing.
