Members of the Wolakota Youth Council have coordinated a Prayer Run for World Peace in conjunction with World Peace and Prayer Day that will convene in the Black Hills of South Dakota on June 21st. The relay run, which starts in the four directions, North, South, East, and West, will consist of youth and adults carrying sacred Native American prayer flags and staffs on their journey to the Black Hills.
The run from the East, organized by Northfield High School graduate, Grace Horn, will pass through Northfield to Winthrop in the afternoon of Thursday, June 9th.
Recent Northfield High School graduate, Nell Holden, is organizing an all-volunteer luncheon for the runners and participants as they pass through Northfield. If you would like to make a food donation, you may email Nell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plans are to host a "sandwich bar" lunch at Riverside Park, Thursday, approximately 1pm.

Cell phones don't work at all, apparently. Local calls from 645 to other 645 and 663 numbers seem to be working.
I'll post an update as soon as I hear something.
11:28 Update: Sergeant Bill Olson said that 911 is working but running on backup.
Noon Update: no change. Twin Cities area phones don't seem to be having a problem, according to my relatives. (I used Instant Messaging to confirm.) Local 645 calls to local 650 numbers (Hickory Tech) do not seem to work.
1:35pm Update: St. Olaf email to all staff at 11:38 am:
Our Internet connection went down about 11:15 this morning. The outage is likely due to either a hardware problem in the Qwest Northfield Central Office or a fiber cut somewhere between Northfield of Owatonna. Qwest is working on resolving the problem.
2:40pm Update from Chief Gary Smith:
Apparently a phone line was cut, (maybe a fiber optic) line that feeds most of the cell phones, internet stuff, DSL, and all our T-1 communications for the public safety channels.
Our backup system to allow us to continue to talk to Dispatch is working. We are dispatching non-emergency calls received at our office in our emergency operations center. 911 lines still work but people should not overload those with questions, only life threatening emergencies.
It looks like the cable modems are working as I'm still getting stuff.
It was supposed to be fixed by 1pm and it's now 2:45 and no word from Quest. This is the second time in the past several years that constructions crews have cut this line.
2:55pm Update: Phone services seem to be restored.

"We were having all kinds of problems, the usual things you see in youth sports," said Bill Szydlo, president of the Northfield Youth Baseball Association at the time. "We had problems with parents...
A vital part of the Northfield plan is a simple little card. If a fan gets out of hand, he or she is handed a card that reads in part: "If your behavior continues, we will stop the game until you leave the premises."
