Back in 2008, Dan Malina was minding his own business one day when a young child got in harm’s way. Without thinking, he bent over to scoop the youngster to safety—and in so doing, did severe damage to his neck and back.

Even though it’s too late to get tickets to the 2016 Ryder Cup in Chaska through the Ryder Cup’s public lottery, there’s still a chance to see all four days of play. Premier Golf is offering travel packages to the popular event starting at $2,895 per person (for a double occupancy room).

There will be a little more ice in downtown Chaska this winter. This month marks the much anticipated opening of the Chaska Event and Curling Center.

“When I step on the ice everything from the day disappears from my mind,” Katherine Johnson, 13, says.

“I like the feeling of defying gravity when you’re jumping,” says Chaska High School senior Morgan Simon, 17. “It helps you believe in yourself.”
