For these past 17 months we have been living in a sad limbo. In May of 2013 three families lives changed forever when Matthew Jensen broke into their houses and killed and injured their family pets. Yesterday, on October 22 he was finally sentenced to up to 57 months in prison.
 
57 months. It doesn’t bring back our pups. It doesn’t bring back our feeling of safety. It doesn’t bring back all the innocence and love that we lost.

Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg

Note: July 2 marks the 150th anniversary of the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, which was marked by the charge of the 1st Minnesota Regiment down Cemetery Ridge. The Northfield Historical Society will be hosting a talk on the Gettysburg Campaign on Thursday, July 11, at 6:00 pm, at the historical society museum. Meanwhile, it's possible to make a short trip from Northfield, to Cannon Falls, to visit the grave of one of the heroes of the 1st Minnesota. The cemetery is across from Cannon Falls High School on Highway 19, east of Cannon Falls.

On July 2, in the heat of the Battle of Gettysburg, Union general Winfield Scott Hancock realized that there was a dangerous weakness near the center of the Union line on Cemetery Ridge. He needed time—five minutes—to shift reinforcements into position to meet the oncoming brigade of 1,600 Alabamans, so he ordered the 262 men of the 1st Minnesota Regiment to charge. The Minnesotans bought Hancock the time he needed, but only 47 men survived the attack. One of the survivors was the six foot five inch officer who led the charge, Col. William Colvill.
