The Star Eagle recently received a letter from Joan (Radke) Cutajar, who resides in Australia. Joan graduated from Ellendale High School in 1965, which means in 2015 it will be the 50th anniversary of their graduation. Joan is concerned and anxious to get in touch with former classmates and to find out if anyone is doing anything to organize this historical event.

Wind, rain wreak havoc around area




The NRHEG area has experienced a lot of storm activity the past several days. Above is a partially-flooded New Richland City Park, in the middle is a very flooded Legion Field and at the bottom is Riverview Golf Course Wednesday afternoon. Rain and high winds have caused much damage to crops and structures throughout the area. Between Saturday and Tuesday, six inches of rain fell in Waseca County, according to the Southern Research and Outreach Center, making it the third wettest June in recorded history — so far. More rain is in the forecast. (Star Eagle photos by Jim Lutgens)
