I've done stories about people battling cancer before. They've been all ages, all types of cancers, and all stages of the cancer battle. I never thought I'd be the subject of the story.

Two of those homers came when the Tigers swept a double-header at Amery last Thursday. The games were played in wet, windy conditions, but that didn't stop the Tigers from generating 20-1 and 10-6 wins. The first game was stopped in the fifth inning after the Tigers had scored their final five runs.
To the Editor: Re: May 6, 2013 story, "Board votes to transfer disabled program" My, that was quick and seemingly easy, one vote and it appears St. Croix Industries is history. Yes, I know it has to be voted on by the county board. In reality can St. Croix Industries be replaced with 40 years experience to their credit? Will the new program accept the clients that attend the program now or will they want only the higher functioning clients.
To the Editor: Well, it appears that spring is finally here and more than the grass has been uncovered, or has it? The May 5, 2013, New Richmond News headline story caused the cows to give sour milk, the chickens to stop laying eggs and pigs to start losing weight.
