Library mural is a 'natural' fit (02/22/02)

FFA provides strong foundation for students (02/22/02)
Members of the Le Mars FFA organization join with others across the nation in celebrating National FFA Week, Feb. 16-23, 2002.

Anthem singer isn't worried; maybe a bit nervous (02/22/02)
Kelly Kruse plans to "let it rip" when she sings the national anthem at the state wrestling tournament in Des Moines Saturday.

Hinton faces comeback team, Newell-Fonda (02/22/02)
For a time Tuesday night in a Class 1A regional semifinal, there was drama -- an element missing in most Hinton' girls basketball games thus far this season.

Two Le Mars wrestlers win state openers (02/22/02)

AAH, Breathe in that fresh air?????? (02/22/02)
Have you noticed the wonderful bouquet in the air around Le Mars lately? If you haven't, please go to your doctor and get your sniffer checked. We don't know how to approach this subject delicately, so we won't. IT STINKS! Now that we have it out of our system, we want something done and done now. No more excuses, no more pointing fingers at each other, just get the wastewater treatment plant fixed...
