Recently at Prairie Creek Community School, the 4th and 5th graders created a plan to keep businesses unique to Northfield running. We have a pledge asking people to look in Northfield first for what they need before going to chain stores. When it’s time to go out for dinner we want people to consider local restaurants like Tiny’s or The Tavern. If nobody considers stores that only Northfield has, those stores will probably go out of business, and then there won’t be many unique-to-Northfield shops left.

As you no doubt have heard, my favorite bookstore, River City Books, will close its doors for good on March 29. This is sad news all around and it will, literally, be the death of me. But never mind that. My final keystrokes are dedicated to spreading the word that RCB will say goodbye in grand fashion, with a going-out-of-business sale you might want to catch.
The discounts will get progressively deeper.

The Winter Eat Local Challenge is coming up at the beginning of March (March 7-13, with a farmer panel kicking it off on March 6). But it's the middle of winter, and nothing is growing in our yards and on our farms. I don't know about you, but I certainly need a reminder that even in winter, local food is available, and that it is so important to know where your food is coming from. And so, I asked a few folks to inspire us on Just Food's new local food focused blog site.

Continuing with a tradition that dates back some eight decades, Carleton College and St. Olaf College presented their annual contributions to the city of Northfield at City Hall Jan. 9. Representatives from the two Northfield colleges and the city gathered as St. Olaf and Carleton made a total donation of $146,000 to the schools' host city.
Presenting equal amounts of $73,000 to Northfield were St. Olaf Vice President and Treasurer Alan Norton and Carleton Vice President and Treasurer Fred Rogers. Accepting the donations on the city's behalf were council member Kris Vohs and newly elected mayor Mary Rossing. Beginning in the 1920s, Carleton and St. Olaf were among the first colleges in the United States to make such gifts to their host city.

Like so many Americans, members of our community are feeling overwhelmed, stressed and powerless in these challenging economic times.
Now more than ever, we need to focus on the important areas of our lives where we have the power to make a positive difference — our health and wellbeing, our family and our community.
This is a good time for families and individuals to renew their focus on three areas that the YMCA believes form the foundation for strong, healthy families and communities:
