Norah Jeanne Dodge was born on Friday, March 22, 2013, to Magen and Dustin Dodge of River Falls. Also welcomed by sister, Cambria; and grandparents: David and Nancy Chenal of Fredric.; and David and Dawn Dodge of Spooner.
The big chill that settled over River Falls this past weekend heaved the earth, splitting the side of a cast-iron water pipe eight feet beneath Ninth Street and prompting cancellation of Monday classes for Meyer Middle School students.
River Falls Police Chief Roger Leque said city street department crews would be in "full snow operations" mode, beginning around midnight Sunday and residents are urged to move vehicles off city streets if possible.
River Falls’ firefighters responded shortly after 3:30 p.m. Thursday to a fire in a harvested corn field along HWY. 35 near Radio Road.
The fire started behind a tractor working in the field and burned about a one-quarter mile swath of land along the east side of the field near the highway.
Pictured during 1956 River Falls Memorial Day services were front row, left to right, Randy Morrow and sisters Twila Morrow Marquardt and Karen Schumaker, along with cousins Ed and Tom Fiedler. Randy Morrow photo.
After beginning a major expansion and remodeling project in last June, the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 110 N. Third St., has finished its 12,500-square foot addition and invites the community to come see.
First Covenant Church, 1374 N. Main St., held a “Living Nativity” earlier this month where folks could drive through seven outdoor scenes manned by actors and animals, beginning with the angel telling Mary she’ll have a baby to the manger scene. Here, Melissa Ertsgaard and Bill Hickox are at the manger.
Recently elected to the St. Croix Valley Foundation board of directors were Katrina Larsen, director of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Outreach/Continuing Education Office and Rod Rommel, a retired agricultural lender, also from River Falls.
The River Falls Fighting Fish won’t be traveling far for their first Wisconsin Baseball Association playoff game.
The Fish, champions of the St. Croix Valley Baseball League with a record of 14-2, earned a No. 1 seed in their bracket and will take on the fourth-seeded Oulu Blue Jays on Saturday, Aug. 13, at 6 p.m. at Oakey Park in Osceola.
The River Falls Post 121 baseball team defeated top-ranked Beaver Dam 8-7 Tuesday night to win its first ever Wisconsin American Legion state baseball title.
After falling behind 2-0 after one inning of play, River Falls scored six runs in the top of the second and never trailed, turning an inning-ending double play in the bottom of the sixth to preserve the 8-7 win.
