ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Zimmerman running back Camerin Morey broke through the line and with 80 yards left to cover to the end zone, all 11 St. Cloud Cathedral defenders were behind him. He certainly wasn’t counting on a 12th coming from the sideline. Brad Reuter, a Cathedral senior captain, ran onto the field and tackled Morey at the 12-yard near the end of the game Friday night, Oct.
An 8-year-old girl who grew up in the Twin Cities and now lives in Sweden made the discovery of a lifetime earlier this summer while skipping rocks in a Swedish lake: a 1,500-year-old pre-Viking age sword. Saga Vanecek, who lives with her family in Sweden after spending the first seven years of her life in Minnesota, pulled the 33-inch sword from the bottom of the murky lake, held it up in the air and declared “Daddy, I found a sword!” her father, Andy Vanecek said in a recent Facebook post.

LE CENTER, Minn. — Lloyd Tiede never cries. "I have never seen my Dad cry besides when his father passed away," said Adrianna Tiede, Lloyd's daughter. But in a phone call with his daughter Thursday, Sept. 13, Tiede, 55, simply couldn't hold back the tears any longer. And neither could she. "I could tell right when I picked up the phone that it wasn't good news," Adrianna said. "I answered and it was quiet on the other end." For Adrianna, the silence was telling, perhaps even more than words.
MINNEAPOLIS — Alex Frecon was tired of explaining. A proud native of the western suburbs of the Twin Cities, Frecon, who currently lives in Minneapolis, moved away in 2005 to attend Connecticut College in New London, Conn. Naturally, Frecon's state of origin would frequently be a topic of conversation among fellow his fellow college peers, who primarily resided from coastal concrete jungles such as Boston, New York City and Los Angeles. "I'm from Minnesota," Frecon would tell them. Then came the questions. Like, a lot of questions.
