Brett Winkelman, a red-shirt freshman forward from Morris, drained a three-point shot in the closing seconds last Thursday, lifting North Dakota State University to a 76-75 win over Montana State in the semifinals of the Holiday Stores GranTree Inn Classic in Bozeman, Mont. He finished with his first collegiate double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds. One night later, the 2004 Hengstler-Ranweiler Award winner hit the game-winning shot, a layup at the buzzer, as the Bison (7-7) nipped Northern Illinois 57-56 in the championship game. He had 11 points and eight rebounds in that game.

I was told, if I were able to keep the lake from freezing solid, and food was available, our trumpeter swans would probably spend the winter here. If this indeed was the case, and they wintered over, I knew we would have a much better chance of having them as permanent residents. How hard could it be to keep part of the lake open throughout the winter? There must be many ways to keep a lake from freezing. Nothing is impossible; just some things are more difficult than others. I have seen boats left in lakes with air bubbles rising around them.
