Waconia's Marc Huebner competes on Food Network

There's an art to putting dinner on the table every night. Yet, for most home cooks, an empty plate is the best accolade they can expect. Waconia's Marc Huebner—who regularly cooks for his 16-year-old and 13-year-old daughters, as well as his girlfriend and her two teenage children—was hoping for a little more than empty plates and a satisfied family as he geared up to compete on the Food Network's "America's Best Cook" competition.

Garden Fever

Yes, we're stuck in a polar vortex (does anyone else feel like that's a term that belongs in a comic book?), but I'm pretty certain that's not stopping my fellow gardeners from dreaming of digging in the dirt. If you've been perusing seed catalogs or sketching up raised bed designs or debating on when you should start your seedlings indoors, I'd love to hear from you.

Looking for a few good students

We're looking for outstanding high school students from the class of 2015, who excel in terms of academics, athletics, arts, activities or volunteerism. The students should be residents of Chanhassen, Chaska, Eden Prairie, Victoria or Waconia, and they should be on track to graduate in the spring of 2015.
