  • Paving the way

    Sep 12, 2022

    The long-anticipated results of the New Rockford Street Improvement Project are finally taking shape. After weeks of milling and other preparations, Bituminous Paving began paving streets on Tuesday, Sept. 7. Crews started on 5th Avenue North with the intention to complete paving on the west end of the railroad tracks in New Rockford by week's end, according to Wade Senger of Interstate Engineering. For residents on the west side of the tracks, that means the daily struggle of avoiding road...

  • Leagues return to Wonder Lanes

    Nathan Price|Sep 12, 2022

    Bowling leagues are finally making their return to Wonder Lanes. Leagues haven't taken place at Wonder Lanes since the spring of 2020, when operations ground to a halt because of the COVID pandemic. The New Rockford Area Betterment Corporation (NRABC) purchased the bowling that fall after longtime owners Leroy and Pat Krueger decided to retire, and then raised more than $300,000 to renovate the space. Those renovations turned Wonder Lanes into one of the most modern bowling alleys in North Dakot...

  • Photos available for purchase

    Nathan Price|Sep 12, 2022

    It’s long been a tradition to cut out a nice photo in the newspaper, perhaps of your kids or of a relative, to remember the time they made the front page or got a good tackle during that week’s football game. However, the photos that actually make it into the print newspaper are only a fraction of the high-quality pics the Transcript takes every week. Over the course of a football game, for example, the photographer is likely to capture dozens of excellent photos, most of which, of course, can...

  • Dakota Gardener: A lesson in planting zucchini

    Carrie Knutson|Sep 12, 2022

    As most gardeners are, I am overly excited at planting time. If I have the room and the weather cooperates, I usually plant way more than I can eat and preserve. One never knows what the growing season will bring, and you don’t want to be short on vegetables! One vegetable that I have learned the hard way not to over plant is zucchini. Zucchini is a member of the Cucurbitaceae or gourd family. This family includes pumpkins, squashes, cucumbers and melons. Zucchini is also called summer squash as it is harvested when it is immature and the s...

    Jodi Hovdenes|Sep 12, 2022

    September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Several Carrington entities came together to organize Carrington’s first ever Walk to Fight Suicide on Sunday, September 11. Our community and surrounding communities have been impacted too much by suicide and its ripple effects.

  • The danger of silencing words

    Christine Flowers|Sep 12, 2022

    I've been called a lot of things in my life, some of them endearing, most of them not. When Barack Obama referred to conservatives like me as people who cling to our guns and religion, I was offended. Later, when Hillary Clinton called conservatives who weren't going to vote for her a "basket of deplorables," it looked as if another Democrat was employing crude, awkward rhetoric to gin up her base. It had the opposite effect, which helped put another guy in office who wasn't shy about insulting...

  • A little Homecoming nostalgia

    Amy Wobbema|Sep 12, 2022

    I have a song by Kenny Chesney in my head right now, “The Boys of Fall.” “Standin' in the huddle listenin' to the call “Fans goin' crazy for the boys of fall” Yes, it's Homecoming, and this time of year, I drift back to the autumns of my youth. I’m a football fan to the core. It’s one of the only things I actually like about the fall season, in fact, other than the beauty of the leaves changing color. If I’m home and there’s a game to watch, it’s probably on the flat screen in my living room. Th...

  • Shelley v. Kraemer: "My Little Soul is Overjoyed"

    David Adler|Sep 12, 2022

    In 1947, in the context of changing attitudes about race and a historic shift in federal policy on the practice of segregation in housing, punctuated by President Harry S. Truman’s spirited attack on discrimination in America, the Supreme Court delivered a landmark decision in Shelley v. Kraemer that rendered racial covenants unenforceable. In a 6-0 opinion authored by Chief Justice Fred Vinson, the Court destroyed the most efficient and systematic tool for maintaining Jim Crow traditions and denying racial minorities from accessing decent h...

  • Sermonette: God's Playbook Series #2

    Pastor Joe Greiner|Sep 12, 2022

    This September, we are examining God’s Playbook. We’re looking at the various choices and decisions that God has made preserved in the Bible. Plays God has run, that we would be wise to expect he might run again. If you open your Bibles to the very first page of the New Testament, what you’ll find is a list of names. Matthew chapter 1 begins with the genealogy of Jesus, the Messiah. In that list you’ll find some absolute studs. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Hezekiah, and Josiah, to name a few of the absolute rock stars of God-followers you’ll...

  • Living on Purpose: God builds His temple with living stones

    Billy Holland|Sep 12, 2022

    As a Christian faith writer, I am blessed with God providing me with spiritual insights and considerations to relay to others. He creates opportunities for me to share, however, what I do is not anything more special than how millions of other Christians are serving Him, and I humbly acknowledge that most are more talented and effective than myself. I’m just a small piece of a large puzzle, one voice among many who is pointing toward the one who has all authority, who created everything, and k...

  • Savvy Senior: How to find travel companions for older travelers

    Jim Miller|Sep 12, 2022

    Dear Savvy Senior, I am interested in finding some type of travel escort service to help my elderly parents fly across the country. My son is getting married in the fall and would love for my parents to attend, but they’re both in their 80s with health issues, so they’ll need help getting there. Can you direct me to any travel services that can help us? Looking for Assistance Dear Looking, Traveling can be challenging under the best circumstances, but for seniors with medical problems, phy...

  • A deafening Thunder clap

    Kyrie O'Connor|Sep 12, 2022

    After the Medina/Pingree-Buchanan Thunder took a close loss to the New Rockford-Sheyenne Rockets last season, the Thunder came back this season looking for revenge. And that's just what M/P-B got: bitter sweet revenge. The Thunder struck right at the start, with big blocks coming from sophomore middle blocker, Maddie Gefroh, and kills that stung from outside hitter, Allison Thomas. But those two weren't the only outstanding players for the Thunder. Brynn Sorenson and Kelsey Vandeberge also...

  • Tornadoes blow past Rockets

    Nathan Price|Sep 12, 2022

    On Friday, Sept. 2, the New Rockford-Sheyenne Rockets took on an old nemesis: the Cavalier Tornadoes. Though NR-S had just come off an impressive win the week prior, the Rockets undoubtedly faced a tougher challenge against Cavalier, who are pegged as one of the best 9-man football teams in North Dakota and are expected to compete for this year's state title. To make matters more difficult, Rockets Head Coach Elliott Belquist wasn't on his team's sideline, as he traveled to Nebraska to watch...
