Around the Bend: Tales of chicken dreams followed by hillbilly drama


Daneele and her husband Jay Shipman live in rural Frazee with their children Carter and Cassidy. Daneele is originally from the Chicago area, but has lived in Frazee for over 20 years. Daneele enjoys reading, quilting, knitting and gardening. She is a freelance writer for the Frazee-Vergas Forum and a Frazee Area Community Club director.

Gale Force Winds: ‘It’s too dry, it’s too wet’


Delair Kaas raises his dock as water levels are on the increase.

 A while back we were in an apparent drought and now the rain just won’t quit.
