Not to be confused with Locks of Love, Clip for the Cure is a Regis Salon program that raises money, not hair, for those fighting breast cancer. On Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 pm., haircuts are $15 at Regis Salon and that $15 will be donated to the Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. Approximately 22,000 haircuts will be given nationwide that day at Regis Salons. Last year, said Regis Salon Manager Amber Trana, the Washington Square Mall location raised $1,200.
Thinking 20 volunteers would be a success, organizers were more than pleased when 50 volunteers showed up Friday, Sept. 19, to help remove flowering rush along the Detroit Lakes city beach area.

DETROIT LAKES - Detroit Lakes area citizens have joined forces to pick flowers. The invasive flowering rush, that is, that's taking over the city beach area and infected many of the lakes in the Pelican River chain.

During an emergency meeting Thursday morning, the Frazee-Vergas School Board denied a request to put the referendum question on the November ballot. "The District ... had determined that the petition was insufficient ... because each petition page did not include a statement summarizing the purpose of the petition," a written letter from School Board Clerk Kathryn Kallis said. The letter was addressed to Oscar Birkeland, who had turned in the petition to the school district on Aug.
