PRAIRIE ROSES: To Oakport Township Chairman Greg Anderson, who after years of fighting off water in the flood-prone neighborhood, is moving to a lake home far away from the flood zone. Well, sort of. Despite the move, he intends to be available to township residents regarding flood matters. After all, Anderson's experience is a veritable encyclopedia of the long flood struggle in Oakport. His knowledge will be valuable as the township protects itself against future floods. He's been a front-line leader during high water and in the effort to secure funding for flood protection. The township still will be able to tap his knowledge as the flood protection effort continues. That's good news for the people of Oakport.
PRAIRIE ROSES: To all the people who came out to help find Huck, a hunting dog who was spooked and ran off when his owner, Mark Michaels of Burnsville, Minn., rolled his SUV near Downer, Minn. It was quite an effort, and it ended well. Huck showed up at a Clay County farmstead near Sabin, Minn., where he was found by Mark and Sherri Anderson. Dog and owner were reunited. Huck had a leg cut, but otherwise seemed OK. It was a nice outpouring of support from the people of the area where Huck went missing. And a very nice ending, too.
