Horizon Study Circles to start Feb. 25

Decreasing poverty through leadership and city improvements is the goal of the Horizons II program.

The City of Philip was chosen as a participant in the Horizons II project. Residents have been working with the program since the middle of last year.

Last Thursday evening, February 15, a few local residents gathered for a meal and meeting about the next step in the program. Some of those in attendance were unsure of what the program is about.

The program started in 1998 after the Northwest Area Foun-dation, (NWAF), revamped its mission and awarding of grant dollars.

Chateau LaRoach Milesville comedy production can really "bug" you

For whatever is bugging you ... Mistakenly using toxic bug powder on his spaghetti, thinking it was Parmesan cheese, the British bicyclist and supposed health inspector (Troy Solberg, left) begins hallucinating. Watching in horror is Faye Piroutek (back), and oblivious to the whole problem are Nina Pekron and Rachel Parsons.

Visit the beautiful lakeside Chateau LaRoche for a peaceful weekend get-away, where you will be greeted by a friendly host of ... cockroaches.

The Milesville actors will present the comic farce Chateau LaRoach over the next two weekends. Written by Lauren Wilson, the humorous play consists of two scenes in the first act and three scenes in the second act.

Crawling with slapstick humor and stage action, it takes the audience through a weekend in the lives of Francois and Mimi LaRoche, the French proprietors of an American chateau hotel.

Love? Oh, right ...

Hearing or saying "I love you" is like the calm before the howling storm. These simple words have been the mystery that has befuddled men and women for centuries. And, that mystery has rarely been completely figured out. Rarely, but on occasion it has.

Young people (like we all once were) either hesitate to say these words, or repeat them offhandedly at almost every conceivable occasion. Men quake at the thought of uttering them to "that special woman". Young girls dream of saying them to "that hot guy" but never actually do.

SIOUX FALLS - Kevin Schieffer, president of Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad, said the Surface Transportation Board's decision to require another environmental impact statement is a hurdle the railroad expects to clear this year.
