Just got the call—"No School Today" Yay---perfect day to come to the library for a book—well that is unless I decide it is also time for me to go home . I love snowstorms—but, in my own house...although being stranded in a library would not be the worst place..
As a longtime volunteer in the Morris community, Ardath Larson has done some heavy lifting. "I have carried an anvil," Larson said. "Put that on your bucket list." Doing some heavy lifting including lifting an anvil "comes with the territory" of being a volunteer at the Stevens County Museum, Larson said. Although she won't carry an anvil again, she continues to work at the museum and for other organizations in Morris. Larson was rewarded for her efforts with the Pay It Forward Stevens County volunteer recognition award.
Megan Thooft and Neal Erickson are happy to announce their engagement.

Although the policy does change how the student council can operate, the school district continues to support the council's ability to sponsor homecoming, the veterans day program and other activities, district superintendent Rick Lahn said in an interview this week.
