I got to work with some great people and create some software that I was proud of."— Laverne Schrock '17 Students taking Software Development at the University of Minnesota, Morris gained hands-on experience when they developed an application for the West Central Research and Outreach Center (WCROC) earlier this year. Rolling out this month, the app allows visitors to WCROC's Horticulture Display Gardens the chance to rate and comment on flowers they're viewing.

Do you ever get deja vu when you listen to the radio? It's happened to me a few times over the past several weeks. I've been traveling between appointments and the same song is played at the same time on the radio as it was a few days before. For a few seconds I think I've just dreamt that I've heard the song days earlier at the same time of the day, but then I realize, I really did hear it at the same time on two different days. And lately I've been thinking Michael Jackson has been sending me messages from beyond the grave.

As the buzz of chainsaws filled the air June 14 in Alberta, Stevens County and Alberta City officials were already working on how to help pay for the costs of the clean-up from the June 13 storm that toppled dozens of trees in Alberta and did other damage in the county. On the morning of June 14 it seemed it would take nearly dozens of chainsaws to remove the damaged trees that nearly filled several streets the night before. And it will cost money to do that clean-up.
The Morris Area Board of Education gave Winkelman Building Corp. a $19 million budget for a possible school renovation project, primarily in the high school. The board honed down potential renovation projects during a June 19 roughly 2 hour and 45-minute work session. The proposed project will require a public vote in November if it continues to advance through planning stages. The board plans to take action on a referendum resolution at the July 24 school board meeting.
When Bethany (Eastvold) Barnett was a student at the University of Minnesota Morris she wasn't thinking she'd someday write a book. Now, 15 years after graduating from the university she said developed her heart for hard work and an interest in literature and English, Barnett did the unexpected. She wrote a book.
When Kim Schroeder and Ashley Christianson were judging the Miss Morris contest several years ago, they started thinking about a way to give young girls in Hancock a similar opportunity. Hancock teenaged girls could compete for the Miss Morris title and the two women weren't looking to create a Miss Hancock competition. They did however, think a Little Miss Hancock contest would be a good idea. Five years later the Little Miss Hancock Contest continues to be part of the community's July 4 celebration. The Little Miss Hancock event is July 3.
