By PAUL DUFFNEY Detroit Lakes Newspapers All good things must come to an end is a popular proverb that is probably overused. In the case of the Frazee softball team, a very good season came to an end against a very solid Warroad Warriors squad. Frazee head coach Dave Trautman was a man of few words after the game. "We do not feel bad losing to Warroad, they are a very good team, and they capitalized on a few mistakes we made," he said.

The Perham Pirates dropped their first game of the season to the Moorhead Miners 4-0 Friday night, but rebounded to pick up a Hi-10 League win in Pelican Rapids Sunday.

The Dent Wildcats have clawed their way to the top of the Countryside League standings with a record of 4-1, after a successful holiday weekend. The Midway Snurdbirds traveled to Dent for an exhibition game Friday night. In a close and well-played game by both teams, the Snurdbirds came from behind in the seventh inning to win 7-6. The Wildcats struck early, scoring a run in the first inning. Brock Collins singled and scored shortly after on a triple by Jeff Ronning. Midway came right back in the top of the second inning to take the lead, after a Jake Lund double and a Dent error.
Last fall, I studied the origins of our country's government in my government class. Don't ask why I suddenly remember all of this (because I don't even know myself), but in one of my first lectures, I was told of the beliefs of a man named Howard Zinn concerning democracy in America. Zinn, a historian and political scientist, has written numerous works discussing his views on our government and has become one of the most well known figures in the political left of the United States.
Graduation has come and gone. The anticipation has departed, leaving relief and uncertainty to take over. Our future has yet to be written, and we are all wondering if we are prepared to be authors. With graduation comes responsibility and drastic changes. Not only do our schedules change, but also our maturity levels. I cannot speak for everyone in my graduating class, but I think the majority of us have reached a level of maturity containing enough sustenance for us to survive on our own. We are spanning out and moving past high school, yet we will never completely move on.

About six years ago, Racer opened a studio in his barn-style garage, and that's where the name Greybarn Studios came from. Greybarn holds two studios.
