CALLAWAY -- This winter, if you happen to be driving past the former Callaway Elementary School building, you may notice a hole in the ground where the baseball diamond's outfield used to be.


The former ballfield will soon be the site of a new 75-kilowatt, Loland wind turbine that will be used to power the old school building, which now houses the headquarters of the White Earth Land Recovery Project (WELRP).
