The North Union High School FFA Chapter held their annual banquet on Tuesday, March 12 at the Armstrong Community Center in Armstrong. Those attending enjoyed a meal provided by Vickie’s Country Catering with cupcakes by Cami Paulson.
After months and years of hard work by those in the community, the Bancroft Apothecary is a reality.
About 175 turned out Saturday night for the 12th annual Emmet County Nature Center Foundation banquet at the Estherville Elks Lodge. For numbers, that figured significantly better than about 150 that turned out last year.

What a way to welcome in Spring. We decided a couple of weeks ago to put the word out that our readers could submit their best winter photos at a chance to win the cover of this newspaper. We had a great response in all four towns (Armstrong, Bancroft Ringsted, and Swea City).


Due to the inclement weather on Tuesday, the Iowa Secretary of State declared an Election Emergency and has postponed the Iowa Lakes Community College Special Election until Tuesday, February 9, 20
