The nation's icebox - International Falls - warmed to a successful Make-A-Wish event last weekend.

At the get together, Justin Clack from Park Rapids helped Forrest Hess, a 17-year-old from New York, make his wish to ride a vintage snowmobile come true.


Clack, who collects and restores vintage sleds from the 1960s and '70s, said Dr. Jim Saurdiff of International Falls contacted him about helping. Forrest's wish list of machines to ride included a Yamaha SRX racer.
