A single mother, Carla Carlstrom has worked all of her life. But Carlstrom has had to take a break from her employment as a registered nurse at a Spring Valley health care facility after being diagnosed with lung cancer. A benefit for the River Falls area resident will be held this Saturday at the El Paso Basement Bar. "She thought she was having a stroke," Carlstrom's daughter, Carlavee, said Tuesday about an incident leading up to her diagnosis. The mother, grandmother and friend started having medical problems this past spring, according to information distributed for the benefit.
Signs of being conservation-minded are evident around Randy Bredahl's farm. There have been such signs at the farm along County Road FF in the town of Clifton for a long time. One of the dams at the place dates back to 1936, said Bredahl, who was named this year's Outstanding Conservation Farmer by the Ellsworth Lions Club and Pierce County Land Conservation Department. "My dad had a conservation plan," he said, referring to the late Raymond Bredahl.
