Jennifer Nelson took a "bump in the road" on Thursday, December 14, during one of the preliminary double lung transplant tests. She had to be put in intensive care. At last report, she was stabilized, but sedated.

Even though this is a bit discouraging we have to remember what a little fighter Jenn is and please keep your eyes on the goal.

KOTA television was at the Philip/Stanley County basketball game Thursday night to report on the audience dressed in green, the color representing organ transplants. The footage was aired on KOTA sports on Friday evening.

Golf course's "new" clubhouse in place

The new Lake Waggoner Golf Course clubhouse building is now on its foundation.

According to club board member Glenn Parsons, several years ago a club committee investigated both the old building's need for repairs and the club's need for more building space. The old building is constructed of deteriorating cinder block, the roof and many rafters need to be replaced, and the floor is beginning to break apart. Repair would be too expensive.
