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.

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!
The Pink Tie Party will be held Thursday, October 30 at Arrowwood Lodge, located on 6967 Lake Forest Road in Baxter, MN from 6-9 p.m.

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.
Classroom Option 1: Over the course of three evenings, experienced labor and delivery nurses provide information about what to expect during childbirth.

Classroom Option 2: Additional classes have been scheduled for those who may not be able to spend three evenings in childbirth education, but still prefer the face-to-face classroom education. 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

Location: Clearbrook Community room

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.

His style has been used by many companies large and small for national advertising programs off and of for the past 30 years. Living in Bemidji, he works as a freelance product designer & developer and seldom shoots professionally, but keeps a hand creating images for personal joy and stock image banks. Assorted photo images featuring unique lighting techniques, shot the old way - free of any digital retouching whatsoever. Most people don't believe these are original.

Theater Latte Da: Steerage Song

Close

November 7, 2014

Performed by Theater Latte Da of Minneapolis. Created by Artistic Director Peter Rothstein along with musician and writer Dan Chouinard, this musical docudrama tells a story of the journey immigrants took from Europe to America through Ellis Island. Rothstein and Chouinard spent over three years gathering immigrant songs from 30 different European countries then narrowed their selection to 40 songs. 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.

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.

Faith in Action is a community-based, volunteer, nonprofit organization that provides nonmedical support to older adults, people with disabilities, and other individuals experiencing difficult circumstances.

There’s no need to RSVP, just come and watch the drawing for the happy raffle winners on Wednesday, November 12th at 5:00 p.m. For more information on the raffle, or about volunteering or receiving services from Faith in Action for Cass County, call 866-675-5435 or check out the website at www.faithinactioncass.com.

The Mask and Rose Theater of Puposky, MN presents

Close

November 15, 2014

The Mask and Rose Theater of Puposky, MN presents an original , derived
physical theater work entitled “Labels” on Nov. 15th, 7:30 PM at The Long Lake
Theater in Hubbard , MN .
The tendency to classify and categorize objects is a deeply ingrained aspect of human nature.The
problem is really statistics 101: whenever you convert a continuous measure into discrete
categories, you lose valuable information.
We inhabit a world in which we tend to put labels on each other and expect that we will then
march through life wearing them like permanent sandwich boards.
This original theater work explores through masks, movement , and multi- media the concept of
how humans label each other .
The cost is free.
Women for Women International supports women in war-torn regions with financial and
emotional aid, job-skills training, rights education and small business assistance so they can
rebuild their lives.
Tickets can be reserved by credit card by calling 218-243-2685 or maskrose57@gmail.com and
limited tickets will be available at the door .
The play is directed by Cate Belleveau as fulfillment of her McKnight Artist Fellowship
appropriated via the Region 2 Arts Counsel and attendance at Dell Arte’ International’s School
of Physical Theater in Blue Lake , CA. in July .
“This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Region 2
Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.”

It’s impossible to crown any one performer as country music’s biggest star, but Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash would all be near the top of any list. Each broke barriers and changed country music and popular culture forever. Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is a new revue that presents the best loved songs of these classic artists along with stories of their colorful lives and careers.
