"Can Art Save Small Towns?"

Even in small town rural America we value our culture.   But it’s much more than just the dollars and “sense” of it all.   Perhaps what the arts contribute most is that important intangible – “quality of life” – that helps us enjoy the experience of living, wherever we are planted.

A Crossroads Riddle

Here's a question for you to consider: what do a lay minister, a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution, a failed political run for Governor of Minnesota, draft horses, and one of the largest renovations of a timber-framed barn in America all have in common?  You'll find out when you watch the next episode of Lakes Country Living!

 Okay, I'll give you a hint: who is the pioneer family in this photograph?   If you think you know, post your guess.  I will answer this riddle in just a few days.   Until then, stay warm.   The next polar vortex is about to descend!
