Gophers win big in Wagner's college debut

Wagner, who has yet to lose a game at Williams Arena after leading the NRHEG Panthers to consecutive state championships, had six points, five rebounds and four assists in her first collegiate contest.

Lee Johnson talks about WWII like it was yesterday


RIGHT THERE — Lee Johnson of Ellendale points to a picture of himself during Basic Training in Arkansas in 1945. Also in the picture, fourth from top in the far right row, is rural New Richland resident Richard Crumb, featured in an earlier article in the Star Eagle. Johnson, 90, is a 69-year member of the American Legion. (Star Eagle photo by Jim Lutgens)



Lee Johnson still remembers the day the lieutenant pulled him aside.

“He said, ‘Lee, you might think I’m nuts, but I just wanted to know if you wanted to re-up for another two years,’” said Johnson.

The lieutenant was right.

“I said, ‘Hell no! I’m ready to go home,’” said Johnson.

And so it was at the end of World War II for Johnson, a lifelong area resident who still lives in his home across the street from NRHEG Elementary School in Ellendale.

Interviewing Johnson is not like talking to a normal 90-year-old.
