    Garver’s Movie Review Bob Garver “The Lost City” is the kind of movie that looks like it was a lot more fun for the actors to film than it is for the audience to watch. Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum got to spend time in each other’s company, goofing around in a comedy in the jungle… Read More

    Stories in the Rear View Mirror Delta Daggett I have been writing about Frazee and my experiences in growing up and what we did in those days.  A few have contacted me that sharing my youth with the Forum subscribers has jogged their memories of what they did in their youth. Some of us have reached… Read More

    From my desk Bob Williams One of the first questions I got from someone outside of the Frazee-Vergas area after taking over editor duties here was, “There can’t be a lot going on over there to report on, is there?” On the contrary, there is plenty to report and one thing that has really stood out to… Read More

    The Prairie Spy Alan “Lindy” Linda As if it isn’t bad enough that this winter of 21-22 has come at us time and again with a kick-butt-and-take-no-hostages attitude, it now seems determined to last forever. Driveways all over are shrieking their outrage. Sidewalks scream obscenities, demand better shovels more often. Vehicles drink more and demand less salt… Read More

    Ask A Trooper Sgt. Jesse Grabow Question: I have heard some talk about HEAT patrols that the State Patrol is a part of. Can you explain what this is? Answer: HEAT stands for Highway Enforcement for Aggressive Traffic (HEAT).

    We are so happy with the turnout at the benefit. Words do not express all the Thank You’s we owe you for your generosity. Your support (spiritually, emotionally, and financially) is so appreciated, but more than anything, your love is lifting us up.  This rocky road we are traveling is easier to walk with the support… Read More

    Publisher’s Perspective Chad Koenen If riding a bull is the most exciting 8 seconds in sports—Easter egg hunts could be the most exciting 5 minutes of the spring.  On Saturday, Dani, the girls and I attended three different Easter egg hunts in the area for the newspaper. It’s our annual Saturday of Easter tradition and… Read More

    The Prairie Spy Alan “Lindy” Linda A recent trip to my snowy mailbox down at the end of the driveway produced a letter from the Jury Summons Processing Center for this county. Oh for joy: A summons for jury duty. I’ve never served on a jury. I know without being told that jury duty is nothing like… Read More

    Ask A Trooper Sgt. Jesse Grabow Question: I’ve noticed you use the word “crash” and not the word “accident” when talking about incidents while on the radio. T.V. and the newspaper. Why is that? Answer: I’d be glad to talk about this as I am passionate about this topic and it is certainly intentional.  The spark for this issue… Read More

    From my Desk Bob Williams Taking over editor duties at the Frazee-Vergas Forum continues somewhat of a family legacy in this area.  I might be a familiar face to some from covering sports for newspapers in both Perham and Detroit Lakes the past decade. If that does not ring a bell, countless area graduates knew my father… Read More
