The Bethany Lutheran College Chamber Orchestra will perform in New Hampton, Jerico and Saude this weekend.
Pastor Peter Faugstad has more than just a casual interest in the Bethany Lutheran College Chamber Orchestra. It may have something to do with the director, Benjamin Faugstad. “Ben is my brother, but I don’t call him professor,” quipped the pastor of Redeemer, Saude and Jerico Lutheran Churches....
A farmer chops corn for silage in a field north of Jerico last week as the weather finally gave area growers a chance to get into their fields.
Last week was a boon for area farmers; the weekend and the start of this week … not so good. “We have a lot of guys out in the fields and they’re making good headway,” ISU Extension Agronomist Terry Basol said Friday, “but what they really want is to keep the momentum.” Unfortunately, that momentum...
Volleyball fans take in the Waukon-Decorah match during the Northeast Iowa Conference volleyball tournament on Saturday. The tournament provided the first competition to be held in the gym that was part of New Hampton Community Schools’ $19.415 million building project.
Although the original plans were to have the new gym completed in time for the start of the 2019 school year and volleyball season, New Hampton had to wait until this past weekend to finally open up this facility for the Northeast Iowa Conference volleyball tournament. However, it wasn’t the first...
Iowa Pork Producers Association President Trent Thiele presents Pub at the Pinicon owner Dale Reicks (left) and the restaurant’s manager, Phil Zwanziger, with Iowa’s Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Award.
Minutes after the Pub at the Pincion received the 2019 Iowa’s Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Award, the folks from the Iowa Pork Producers Association issued a warning: Expect a “pork tenderloin tsunami.” They weren’t kidding. Just ask Pub at the Pinicon Manager Phil Zwanziger. “Oh my God, since the...
New Hampton High School students eat lunch in the new cafeteria that opened last week. The cafeteria will also serve as the lobby for the new competition gymnasium that officially opened on Saturday when the Chickasaws hosted the Northeast Iowa Conference volleyball tournament.
It’s been, as Superintendent Jay Jurrens put it with a weary smile, a “process,” but New Hampton Community Schools’ $19.415 million building project is complete. Or at least it’s 99.9 percent complete. Save for a few little things here and there, the project that began when voters approved a bond...
From left, drum majors Ethan Rosonke, Julia Havlik and Hannah Meier keep the band on pace as they lead them in a song during last Wednesday’s practice.
If you have been in the vicinity of the high school any of the recent mornings, you have probably heard some music blowing on the breeze from the football stadium. This is none other than the high school band, practicing for their big moment under the Friday night lights. Leading the charge are...
Pub at the Pinicon Manager Phil Zwanziger finishes cooking a tenderloin at the New Hamtpon restaurant.
Phil Zwanziger had no idea that the three people who came into the Pub at the Pinicon for a late lunch recently were judges for a statewide contest sponsored by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. “I walked by a few times, asked them how everything was and didn’t even think that all three were...
A New Hampton resident made a pitch last week to the City Council to have members of the New Hampton Light Plant Board elected, rather than appointed, but he may have to first lobby the Iowa Legislature to change state law. Larry Throndson, a former member of the Light Plant Board, last Monday...
The ballots are in and that means voting for the Nov. 5 municipal and school elections is now underway. The Chickasaw County Auditor’s Office received the ballots last Thursday and early voting started on Friday and will run through Election Day, and election officials are reminding voters that...
Area farmers were praying for a little rain a month ago; today, they’d love Mother Nature to turn off the spigot. “It could stop anytime,” said ISU Extension Agronomist Terry Basol, who is based in Nashua. “We have quite a few soybean fields that are coming around — we’ve even had a few taken out...
