Little Dipper playoffs

The Elrosa Saints Little Dipper baseball team defeated Freeport 12-4 in the Stearns County League playoff opener on Sunday night. They advance to face Lake Henry in the SCL's little league-level semifinal round. The next game is Sunday, July 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Elrosa.

Don't forget! The B-B-E school board will meet in regular session on Monday night at 7:30 p.m. at the elementary school library.

Also! Later in the week, the Pope County Fair in Glenwood will run from Wednesday to Saturday. They have large advertisements in my newspaper (July 5, 12, 19 issues) outlining their feature events and the full schedule. It's my job to help promote their very nice, free fair and steer the public to take in all they have to offer.

Also! It's never too early to plan ahead for the Region 15C amateur baseball tournament. This year all games - evening and day time - are held in Farming, as their stadium lights are now installed. The first region game is Friday, August 3, and the tournament wraps up on Sunday, August 12.

I have much to report on from the now-completed Bonanza Valley Days celebration in Brooten. I will put 99 percent of that into my upcoming Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper issue. I have approximately 48 hours to get it completed, which means I have little or no time to be providing Internet updates. I don't know how many pages it will be...but "it will be big!" If you are a subscriber, you will be rewarded with a great July 19 issue.

I wish more newspapers could put a little more swagger into their step. Part of me wants to shout at other newspaper publisher and say, "Come on! This is a time to display confidence in your product!!!!"

"Go big or go home!"

(Video) Saturday street dance

Here's a brief glimpse of the Saturday night street dance at Bonanza Valley Days in Brooten! It features Wasted Time, made up of supremely AWESOME musicians from the Sedan and Terrace areas. Time to get back to dancing!

Note: the video is very shaky at first, as I was still setting up my tripod.

It has been a PHENOMENAL day three of Bonanza Valley Days 2018!

...and here's a link to the Bonanza Valley Voice website and a video from Worship at the Park on Thursday night last week. https://www.bonanzavalleyvoice.com/story/2018/07/12/news/worship-in-the-park-kicks-off-bonanza-valley-days/657.html.

Don't forget! Bonanza Valley Days gets going this weekend! The first event is actually tonight with Worship in the Park at 7 p.m. at the Brooten city park. Father David Grundman will be leading the non-denominational style service.

Below is near the end of Sunday worship at West Lake Johanna Lutheran church this past Sunday (July 8):

I want to take a moment to introduce Central Heating and Air Conditioning as the newest advertiser with the Bonanza Valley Voice.
