BEMIDJI -- Although the Bemidji State men’s basketball team came up empty during its last road trip, the Beavers are taking away what they can in hopes that it helps this weekend.
BEMIDJI, Minn.—In times of need, the sports world has no rivals. Hurricane Harvey has continued its destruction and devastation in Texas, but the Bemidji State men's and women's basketball programs are teaming up to lend a helping hand. Houston men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson tweeted on Monday his idea for relief: He asked all coaches from all levels to send any team apparel—shirts, shorts and shoes—they could for those affected by Harvey. Thousands of teams have taken action, including the Beavers.
BEMIDJI, Minn.-- The 40th celebration of International Day at the Concordia Language Villages was as lively as ever on Friday, as participants paraded around, honoring their heritages and cultures with pride on their sleeves.
CASS COUNTY, Minn.—Down winding roads and through thickets of trees, the Centennial State Forest rests peacefully in Cass County as the newest state forest in Minnesota. The 3,394-acre land is home to timber production, wildlife habitats and recreational activities. Animals such as white-tailed deer, black bears and timber wolves all reside within the area, while red-shouldered hawks, bald eagles and a variety of warblers circle the skies above. And outdoorsmen can find themselves just as lost in the lure of the lush.
