A former Chickasaw County Board of Health member has filed a lawsuit against Chickasaw County and one of its supervisors claiming that he was libeled and slandered during the county’s attempt to remove him from the board. In a lawsuit filed last month by Osage attorney Aaron Murphy, Terry Johnson...
New Hampton resident Dawn Heying releases a balloon in honor of her daughter, Brittney, before the start of the Their Fight Is Our Fight 5K run/walk.
Dawn Heying stood in the top row of the Mikkelson Park baseball grandstand Friday evening and looked down at the crowd gathered for the start of the Their Fight Is Our Fight 5K run/walk.

Jerry Bodensteiner's love for farming and helping others has created a lasting legacy, and that love for farming began at an early age for the New Hampton man who passed away in the summer of 2020.
This is way more than a tale about a tractor that will do so much good in one of the poorest parts of the world.
