Bemidji State University hosting 42nd Annual Northern Minnesota Math Contest

Close

October 28, 2014

On Oct. 28, approximately 900 high-school students from across northern Minnesota will descend on Bemidji State University’s Gillett Recreation-Fitness Center for the 42nd Annual Northern Minnesota Math Contest.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. in the center’s Hall of Fame lobby, and activities for students begin at 10:45 a.m. The one-hour test begins at 11:30 a.m., and the afternoon features open time for students and advisors.
The contest is divided into two mathematics tests: a lower-division test primarily open to freshmen and sophomores consisting of arithmetic, elementary algebra and geometry; and an upper division designed for juniors and seniors covering higher algebra, geometry and trigonometry. Each test consists of 40 multiple-choice questions, and many of the test problems utilize general problem-solving skills rather than rote memorization and application of formulae. Students may enter a division above his or her grade level, but not below.
Participating schools will compete in class A or AA, according to Minnesota High School League classification, for team awards. Team awards will be given to the top four teams in Class A and the top two places in Class AA in each division. Team finishes in a respective division and class are determined by a sum of the scores of a school’s three highest-scoring individuals.
Awards will also be given to individuals with the 10 highest scores in each division without regard to class, and the top three individuals on each team will receive a Northern Minnesota Mathematics Contest t-shirt.

CTIC Transition Expo

Close

October 28, 2014

The Bemidji Area Community Transition Interagency Committee (CTIC) will host a Transition Expo on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Bemidji High School Commons Area, located at 2900 Division Street NW. The purpose of this event is to inform students and parents of the services area agencies can provide to young adults as they are about to transition from secondary school life to post-secondary school life and adulthood.
This is an opportunity to learn about the many service providers available to assist in planning for transition to adulthood so young adults may connect to the services before graduation. The service providers will be stationed throughout the Commons area of Bemidji High School and will have information on services they offer and how to access their services.
There is no cost and it is a great way to speak directly to service providers that can assist with post-secondary plans such as education, employment, life skills, and other services.
For more information, please call: Stephanie Hubbard @ 333-3100, Ext. 31104, Paula Lind or Jen Voge @ 444-1600

The Story of WWII Ace Don Beerbower
Program date October 29
Location: American Legion in Bagley
Free/ Open to the public/ all ages
NELL program: The Story of Don Beerbower: WWII Ace with author Paul Sailer.
Author Paul Sailer will talk about the book he wrote “The Oranges are Sweet” a biography of Minnesota's leading fighter pilot in aerial and ground victories, Major Don Beerbower.
Beerbower grew up in Hill City, near Grand Rapids. Sailer describes Beerbower’s life there, college in Iowa and then the war. It involves his wife, Elayne, who was his hometown sweetheart and mother of his surviving child. The program will deal with the life of a fighter pilot, the importance of relationships and the loss people experience when they are touched by war.
The Oranges are Sweet is a deeply moving story about Major Don M. Beerbower and the men who served with him during World War II. When he died strafing a German airdrome north of Reims, France, on August 9, 1944, he was the leading ace in the Ninth Air Force.
The 353rd Fighter Squadron was one of three squadrons of the famous 354th Pioneer Mustang Fighter Group, Ninth Air Force. Along with its other two squadrons (355th and 356th), the Pioneer Mustangs made aviation history by flying the first combat mission in the P-51B/C Mustang on December 1, 1943. In The Oranges are Sweet, the author uses many primary source documents, numerous pilot and ground crew interviews, letters, and personal memoirs to tell about the men and machines that went to war with Don Beerbower.
Sailer will address his personal connection to Major Beerbower and Hill City and about the important role Elayne Beerbower played in the writing “The Oranges are Sweet.” Sailer brings his experience in military aviation into the presentation as well.
Paul Sailer has been interested in World War II aviation history for many years. He received his B.S. degree in Social Studies (emphasis in American History) from Moorhead State College, Moorhead, Minnesota, in 1969, and a pilot’s rating from the U.S. Army’s Advanced Flight School at Fort Rucker, Alabama, in 1970. Sailer flew UH-1D Iroquois and OH-58A Kiowa helicopters with the 20th Engineer Brigade in Vietnam in 1970 and 1971. The author was born and raised in Minnesota. He and his wife, Lois, have lived on a tree farm in rural Wadena County, Minnesota, since 1984. Paul Sailer was named 2012 Writer of the Year by the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame
The program will be on Wednesday October 29 at the Bagley Legion Auditorium. The program begins at 9:30 am and is free and open to the public.

Support Breast Cancer Patients in the Brainerd Lakes Area! 5th Annual Pink Tie Party

Close

October 30, 2014

Join us to celebrate the 5th Annual Pink Tie Party to support Breast Cancer patients in the Brainerd Lakes Area from 6:00-9:00 pm on Thursday, October 30 at Arrowwood Lodge at Brainerd Lakes in Baxter. The Pink Tie Party will feature hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dessert samples, music, silent auction and engaging activities. Silent auction includes a private plane ride over the Brainerd Lakes area, a sunset cruise on Gull Lake, a 5-day Cancun vacation and much more!
The Pink Tie Party hosted by Charter Media offers a special occasion to socialize with the members of your community while supporting an important cause. All proceeds benefit breast cancer patients through the St. Joseph’s Foundation at the Essentia Health Cancer Center and The Pink Ribbon Cupboard. Last year the Pink Tie Party raised over $7,000 and we hope to surpass that amount at this year’s event. In addition to the silent auction, we will feature a reverse raffle of a diamond pendant necklace donated by Riddle’s Jewelry.
The funds are used to support patients who are undergoing active treatment for breast cancer through continued improvements in care and non-medical assistance. The St. Joseph’s Foundation and Pink Ribbon Cupboard distributed to patients the following with last year’s funds:
· Gas cards
· Wigs for breast cancer patients
· Rent for a month to lessen the stress on a family
· Payment of mortgage for a month to prevent home foreclosure
· Payment of auto insurance to keep this transportation resource available to the family
· Payment of utilities to keep the lights on
· Grocery gift cards for help with family grocery expenses
“It’s one way that as a community, we can collaborate to extend our outreach to improve the life of cancer survivors and their families in the Brainerd Lakes Area,” said Marian Foehrenbacher, Cancer Center manager at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center. “Having resources for helping to treat the entire patient, not just physically, spiritually, and emotionally through compassionate care by Essentia Health staff, but practically by helping to meet the needs patients have beyond the disease.”
David Jeremiason, Director of St. Joseph’s Foundation, comments, “We are so excited and appreciative to Charter Media, Arrowwood Lodge at Brainerd Lakes, Riddle’s Jewelry and all the individuals and businesses that are supporting this event. We hope both men and women will attend and help us raise money to support breast cancer patients and their families through The Pink Ribbon Cupboard. All money raised will stay local—to help the men and women in the community undergoing breast cancer treatment.”
Come and join in on the excitement of this event! Advanced tickets receive a great swag bag filled with goodies at the event. Tickets may be purchased through Kristin Larsen of Charter Media, David Jeremiason of Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Foundation, Kathy Buxton of The Pink Ribbon Cupboard, Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center Gift Shop, and Riddle’s Jewelry located in the Westgate Mall. Tickets are $25 per person in advance, $30 per person at the door.
Please come and show your support for this great cause within your community!

Writing Group started in 2000 celebrates with Reading

Close

November 1, 2014

On a January evening in 2000, a group of individuals interesting in writing met at Bookin’ It in Little Falls and started The Great River Writers. In January 2004, the group celebrated their 4th anniversary with their first ever public reading at the Great River Arts Center. The free event featured readings by eight members of the group plus readings by featured guests, Long Prairie Poet Dave Bengtson and Nimrod chronicler Jerry Mevissen. The tradition of an Annual Anniversary reading continued for several years.
Now in their 14th season, the Great River Writers will be reprising their annual public reading. As an added surprise, Jerry Mevissen (The Nimrod Chronicles, Broken Heart, and Good Shepherd) – now in the process of completing his fourth book will once again be our featured guest. The public - readers, writers, anyone who loves a good story, or poem – is invited to join the Great River Writers on Saturday, November 1st, at 7:00 PM at the Art Center. Books by several of the writers in the group plus those by Jerry Mevissen will be on display and available for purchase. Mr. Mevissen will be available to sign books from 6:30-7:00 and during the intermission.
Local writers who will be reading include Dan Dambowy, Karol “Pinky” Charon, Laura Hansen (Why I Keep Rabbits, Diving the Drop-off), Patty Wilczeck, and Judy Jeub along with past member Bill Green (Plunging to the Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea ). Readings will include essays, poems, creative non-fiction/memoir, excerpts from mystery novels, and more. This is an opportunity to see what projects our area writers are working on and to learn more about the local writing scene. Past events have been well-attended and provided a great sense of camaraderie, community, and a great deal of laughter.
The event is free and open to the public. Food and refreshments will be provided by Great River Writers. Donations accepted to further the work of the Great River Arts Association. The Art center is located at 122 First Street SE in downtown Little Falls. For more information, contact Great River at 320-632-0960, Pinky Charon at 320-749-2382 or Laura Hansen at 320-632-8841.

Choose the option that best meets your needs. It is recommended that you register for childbirth education approximately eight weeks before your due date.

The next all-day Saturday class is scheduled for November 22. The one-day Saturday class runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and meets in the east lobby of the hospital.
Online: Understanding Birth online class offers 24/7 access to learn more about the childbirth experience in the comfort of your own home. Simply login with your unique password, provided to you upon registration. The online version includes videos and interactive activities.
In the classroom or online, both options cover the following topics:
· Stages of labor and birth
· Coaching the mom through labor and delivery

Show and Tell Showcase
Northern Exposure to Lifelong Learning will wrap up its Fall season of programs with a “Show and Tell” Showcase
Everyone enjoys Hobbies, Collections and personal interests. Who doesn’t have a collection of something in their house? NELL invites you to bring your collection or samples of your hobby to a show and tell showcase on Wednesday Nov. 5 at 9:30 am at the Clearbrook Community room. (in the old Clearbrook school) 200 Elm Street.
Each person will have a few minutes to talk about his or her hobby or collection and then answer questions from the audience in an informal round table. NELL has confirmed that four collectors; Robert Paulson, Virgil Prestby and Keith and Karen Gebhart will be bringing items and stories to share. The audience members are also invited to bring items to share as time allows.
Bob Paulson will share his collection of Norwegian Folk Art. Bob has taken classes in rosemaling, woodworking, weaving and knife making with Norwegian instructors. In doing this, he was able to learn in the context of a living culture. Bob will also talk about why this has been a satisfying hobby for some thirty-six years. He enjoys working with his hands and explains that he has met some of the nicest people along the way.
Virgil Prestby has been a long time collector of all things trapping and fishing. He will display and discuss collectible old traps {size 0 to bear}, spearing decoys, fishing plugs and spinners.
Keith & Karen Gebhardt are bringing their collection of rare Alaskan Eskimo ivory carvings, historical artifacts, furs and other Alaskan items they collected while living and working in Alaska. Most of the carvings and other items are from artists on St. Lawrence Island, near Siberia, where Keith taught school for two years. Most traditional ivory carving skills and specific animal designs are handed down from father to son over many generations. However, in recent generations, there are fewer ivory carvers learning to carve, which makes these pieces even more special. Some of the carvings on display were done by artists who have companion pieces in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. Some of the historical artifacts are from hundreds of years ago when the Eskimos used ivory for sled runners, whale harpoons and other everyday tools.
The program will be on Wednesday November 5 at the Clearbrook Community room. The program begins at 9:30 am and is free and open to the public.

Hope for the Holidays - Grief Presentation

Close

November 6, 2014

Hope for the Holidays is for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one and wish to join in a supportive and caring group to help them through the holidays.
By long tradition, the holiday season is the best of times. But when a loved one is missing from these traditions it can be the worst of times, casting a harsh spotlight on pain and loss. The flood of memories triggered by the season’s familiar sights, sounds, and smells can create an overwhelming yearning for the return of the absent loved one.
The pressure to balance personal grief with the expectations of “joyful” social obligation is a common experience. The Hope for the Holidays Presentation, facilitated by professionals, will provide an opportunity for honest dialogue and tools for coping with the upcoming weeks. Please join us at Essentia Health - St. Joseph's Medical Center from 4-6 pm on Thursday, November 6, 2014.
For more information about Grief Support and to register for Hope for the Holidays please call 218.828.7442 or 218.828.7531.

The production includes lyrics in 15 different languages, but the driving force is the universal language of music. Providing a context for the music are quotes taken from immigrant guidebooks, Ellis Island documents, immigration legislation, and articles about life in New York’s Lower East Side tenement district.

Minnesota National Guard Band performing Veteran’s Day tribute at BSU

November 10, 2014

Bemidji State University’s Department of Music will host a performance of the Minnesota National Guard’s 34th Infantry Division “Red Bulls” Concert Band as part of a free Veteran’s Day tribute concert on Nov. 10.
The concert will begin at 3 p.m. in the Main Theatre of Bemidji State’s Bangsberg Fine Arts Complex. Admission is free for everyone.
The concert will be a patriotic tribute to our nation’s veterans and dedicated to Bemidji resident Betty Masoner.
Masoner has been a long-time supporter of veterans, veteran’s programs, music education and the Minnesota Military Museum. She is a retired educator who taught high school in communities across northwest Minnesota before settling in Browerville High School. She coordinated Veteran’s Day programs at Browerville High School for 35 years, helping thousands of students understand the contributions made by veterans and to educate them on the service and sacrifices veterans make in defense of our nation. She also served as adjunct faculty at BSU.
The opening and presentation of the colors will be coordinated by BSU’s Veterans Assistance Center.
The band will arrive in Bemidji on a pair of CH-47 Chinook cargo helicopters, which will land on the BSU football practice fields on the west side of the Gillett Recreation-Fitness Center at approximately 1 p.m. on the day of the concert. The band will depart on the helicopters between 4:30-5 p.m. following the show.
The concert is being presented by the Military Historical Society of Minnesota and the Minnesota Military Museum at Camp Ripley, Minn.

Unlimited Learning: Minnesota’s Lost Towns

Close

November 11, 2014

Rhonda Fochs, a retired teacher, spent nearly five years researching the history of Minnesota’s lost towns. Her first book, “Minnesota’s Lost Towns” includes about 120 towns, which no longer exist starting from Morrison County including more northward counties.
She writes about how these towns started, what they were like in their prosperous years, why they are extinct, and what is there today. Her passion is collecting and telling stories of the people who lived there.
Fochs contacted local historical societies, searched on the Internet, visited area libraries and read history books about the area. In Morrison County several towns in her book of towns which don’t exist any longer include Aitkinsville, also known as Swan River, Gravelville and Lincoln.
Fochs plans next to publish a book on Central Minnesota towns. Fochs lives in Lincoln with her husband Lenard and their dog DeeJay who accompany her as she travels the state researching more lost towns.
Tuesday, November 11, 1:30-3:30, Heartwood Senior Living, Crosby, non-members $5.00, everyone is welcome. visit www.unlimitedlearning.net

Sanford Foundation Hosts Seminar Genetic Counseling, Imagenetics and National Family History Day

Close

November 24, 2014

The Sanford Health Foundation of Northern Minnesota and its Community Relations Committee are proud to present a Lifestyles for Wellness seminar, Genetic Counseling, Imagenetics and National Family History Day. The seminar, presented by Sanford Bemidji Genetic Counselor, Jennifer Leonhard, MS, is scheduled for Monday, November 24 from 12 to 1 p.m. at Sanford Bemidji Medical Center in the Education Center. Jennifer has earned a Master of Science degree in Genetic Counseling from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, AR. She has extensive clinical experience working in prenatal, pediatrics, cancer and adult genetics as well as multidisciplinary clinics including: craniofacial clinic, Down syndrome clinic, neurogenetics clinic and pulmonology clinic.

Genetic Counseling at Sanford
Sanford genetic counselors have expertise in helping people understand genetic disease, including cancer and how genetic testing could affect them and their families. Genetic counselors are uniquely trained health care providers and work closely with other providers.

Imagenetics
Sanford Imagenetics is the first program of its kind in the nation to fully integrate genetics and genomic medicine into primary care for adults. Providers are translating patients' genetic makeup to prescribe certain medications with even greater precision. It is only the first step toward offering more effective treatments, predicting future health concerns and preventing disease with a personalized health care plan based on the patient’s unique DNA.

National Family History Day
In 2004, the U.S. Surgeon General began recognizing the fourth Thursday in November, Thanksgiving, as National Family History Day. As families gather they are encouraged to talk about and record all known family health problems. By sharing and learning about family health history people become better informed health consumers and the information may help ensure a longer, healthier future.
Join us for a free seminar and learn the importance of genetics and family history when it comes to your health and the health of your family.
This free educational seminar includes lunch and is open to the public. Registration is required. Call (218) 333-5505 or email shfoundation.bemidji@sanfordhealth.org to register by 12 noon on Thursday, November 20.

The next all-day Saturday class is scheduled for November 22. The one-day Saturday class runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and meets in the east lobby of the hospital.
Online: Understanding Birth online class offers 24/7 access to learn more about the childbirth experience in the comfort of your own home. Simply login with your unique password, provided to you upon registration. The online version includes videos and interactive activities.

ROSENMEIER CENTER FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT RESCHEDULES PIPELINE FORUM

Close

November 24, 2014

The Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government has rescheduled a forum to discuss the future of oil pipelines in Minnesota in general and the Enbridge Sandpiper pipeline in particular. The forum had been scheduled for last Monday, November 10 but was postponed due to severe winter weather. The forum, Moving Canadian Tar Sands and Bakken Crude Oil to Market: The Minnesota Connection, will be held on Monday, November 24th in Central Lakes College’s Chalberg Theater at 7pm.
Rosenmeier President Eric Klang said “This is a complex subject, transporting oil across Minnesota, either by pipeline or rail. And it’s become a sensitive and contentious topic. We’d like solutions that will help the nation’s economy and America’s economic future but still keep Minnesota safe for our grandchildren. That’s a tough tightrope to walk sometimes. But we think this panel can chart the course or at least ask the right questions.”
Panel members include Minnesota Pollution Control Commissioner Jon Linc Stine, MN and ND Laborers District Council director Kevin Pranis, and photographer Richard Hamilton Smith, director of the Friends of the Headwaters. A representative of Enbridge Pipelines was not able to be a part of this forum but the Rosenmeier Center has tentatively scheduled a second forum in early 2015 on this topic to include the company.
There is no charge for the forum, it’s open to the public and begins at 7pm Monday night November 24th.

United Way Partners With Boomer Pizza To Promote Free Thanksgiving Meal

Close

November 27, 2014

Boomer Pizza of Baxter and United Way of Crow Wing and Southern Cass Counties are teaming up to help make Thanksgiving a little brighter for area families in need. On Thanksgiving Day, from 12:00 noon – 3:00 p.m., Boomer Pizza will offer complimentary pizza, along with coffee and sodas, to those who could use a little extra cheer this holiday season. Boomer Pizza owner, Chris Moran, says, “This is our 2nd time doing this and we take a lot of pride in it. Our local community is what keeps Boomer Pizza up and running and this is a small way for us to give back. One of the things that separates us from most other restaurants in the area is we are locally owned and operated, which allows us to host unique community events such as this without any hesitation. A major part of everyone’s Thanksgiving involves sharing a meal with friends and family, but some people do not have the means to make this happen. This is where we come in, a free meal from Boomer on Thanksgiving Day, no one will be turned away!”
Amy Gray, United Way Community Relations Specialist, said, “Thanksgiving is a day to relax and celebrate the many gifts in our lives in the presence of those we love. We are so happy to once again partner with Boomer Pizza on this event that allows families in need to do just that—relax and celebrate with loved ones.” Moran is reaching out to area schools while United Way is working with local nonprofits to help spread the word. Says Gray, “We love that Boomer Pizza wants to give back to our community in this way. We are blessed to live and work in an area that places such a high value on service to others.”
Boomer Pizza is located next to Cub Foods and Great Clips in Baxter. For more information, please contact Boomer Pizza at 218.454.4900.
