The need for workers, the lack of housing and a desperate shortage of daycare slots are the three biggest challenges facing New Hampton in 2021. And in a sense, they are intertwined. So New Hampton city and business leaders went outside the box to tackle the three-headed monster, and the result —...
The Chickasaw County Attorney’s Office will lose both of its lawyers next month, leaving county officials scrambling to fill the two vacancies. Chickasaw County Attorney Jennifer Schwickerath last week submitted her resignation, effective Aug. 13, and she confirmed later in the week that the county...
Kids line up to check out their books with Children’s Librarian Kayla Wendland at the Upham Memorial Library in Fredericksburg last week.
Summer is in full color at libraries around Chickasaw County as summer reading programs kick off, some this month, some next month, for children and families. The New Hampton, Fredericksburg, Ionia, Alta Vista, Nashua and Lawler libraries are bursting onto the scene in an array of color after a...
While many town celebrations have grand marshals, Frederika does things a little differently. It has a king and a queen to represent its town and lead the annual parade. And just what does the royalty — this year it’s Shirley Mack and Sylvan Mutschler — have to do to be selected? Live a long...
New Hampton could see the construction of a dozen new homes soon and the city’s lone day-care center may also benefit from the new housing development after the City Council approved the preliminary plat for the “Croell’s Fourth Addition” during last week’s meeting. The addition will extend...
There's a car in there somewhere as it plows through water on Linn Ave. in New Hampton during Friday's storm.
It did not rain on Nashua’s Water Over the Dam Days Parade Saturday morning, or at least, for the most part, it didn’t.

From 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. that day, the New Hampton museum will host a reception for the exhibit that includes a...
Toni and Rod Friedrichs will be honored as Grand Marshals this Saturday, June 5 as AV Day arrives.
Rod Friedrich is kind of partial to northeast Iowa — Alta Vista in particular — and a few weeks ago he found out Alta Vista is pretty fond of him too. That’s when he found out the AV Day board had chosen him and his wife Toni as Grand Marshals of this year’s parade, which will be held during the...
Kirk Lynch has been around cattle his entire life; his wife, Mary, is a relative “newbie.” But they still make a heck of a team on their cattle farm northwest of New Hampton. “I’ve learned a lot, but I still only know a fraction of what he does,” Mary said, “and the funny thing is I always told...
