Due to rising costs, declining advertising and fewer subscriptions, we are faced with closing our beloved historical community paper. We need YOUR help to increase subscriptions and advertising. We have launched a subscription and ad campaign online and on Facebook. Most people have been supportive and we believe that with everyone’s help we can and will succeed. We have set our deadline goal for February 1, 2017. Our progress will be charted by utilizing a thermometer on our website. It can be accessed by going to or We will update it regularly! Why should you care you ask? The paper provides you with great articles and photos of school and community events, sports, obituaries, history and many other items of interest. We provide a great opportunity for readers to come together with stories and a mutual love for our community. Some of the problems we face, is that this is a paper that tends to be shared 3-4 times. We LOVE the idea that people read it and that it stays around forever, but, unfortunately, we need subscriptions to sell advertising and to help pay the bills. We are hopeful that interest in keeping the paper alive and well will be met with enthusiasm and a desire to pitch in and make this work! Our feedback so far, has been that everyone wants to see our paper grow and continue. We need YOUR help to do that. This paper has been a part of our community on and off for over 130 years! That’s a LOT of histo- ry! If you feel you can help out, a subscription costs a mere $25 per year. That’s less than a sub- scription for most other things.

During Monday night’s Lady Knight Basketball game against Kingsford, Jordan Kraemer was honored for scoring her 1000th point-something she had actually accomplished at the end of last year when they played Iron Mountain in the tournaments. She was given the game ball as well as a big hug from her coach Carli Kelly. And to show she isn’t finished adding up the points yet, she went on to become the top scorer of the night as Norway defeated the Kingsford Flivvers 46-31.
