Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column, December 18, 2014

Good morning! Talk about wet and foggy out there! Wow it was really scary getting into school today! I couldn't see anything! It was insane! Please drive careful out there everyone.

Jan 9th and 10th Workshop and Traditional Pow Wow at Black Bear Casino Resort. Sustainable Ag and Natural Resource Workshop on Friday from 8-5 and Sat 8:30-11. Pow Wow- registration  at 10 am Grand entry 1pm and 7pm and feast at 5. More information Niki Crowe 218-878-7148 or email

I hope this finds people happily getting ready for the Christmas holiday. I know that it can be a very stressed time of the year. If you are experiencing being overwhelmed, sad or depression please reach out for help. There are so many things that can set a person off and make whatever problem seem huge and overwhelming. Depression is not something to be ashamed of! I know personally we have recently gone through three suicide attempts and it is horrible. If you know of someone who has depression or needs some help please gently but firmly help them get the help that they need.

Good luck to all the students take finals! I know that you can do it! Just spend some time studying and it will all come out all right! Hope Mikhaila is doing good on her finals up at UMD! I am sure that that they are going fine!

Hope all the students have a wonderful vacation from school! Please be safe and do help your parents out around the house! Have a wonderful holiday!
