Time to honor service members past, present

As Memorial Day approaches next weekend, it's important to recognize another important day that's observed shortly before.

This Saturday marks Armed Forces Day. The holiday is celebrated to thank those who are serving in our armed forces. We thank all of the brave men and women who are out there right now protecting our way of life.

Also, we are saddened to hear the tornado news from our friends in Barron County. You can make a donation to the Red Cross by calling (800) RED CROSS or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 gift.
