  • Twins Talk: Quite an endeavor by Trevor Plouffe

    Trevor Plouffe has developed into a solid major league third baseman. Trevor was drafted in 2004 after an All-American high school career, chosen in the first round (20th overall) by the Twins as a shortstop. Through the years as he learned his craft in the minors, he was occasionally called up to the Twins when someone was injured. But he would bounce around, playing every position — from short to third, second, first, and even a stint in the outfield.

    “The Chosen Valley Chamber Music Series will include three concerts that be held in the Legion Room of the Chatfield Center for the Arts (CCA) on Sunday evenings, July 26, August 9 and August 16,” said CCA volunteer Tom Hilgren. “Chamber music is music that is performed by a small number of performers, traditionally in a smaller performance space — a chamber, rather than a concert hall.  It is generally associated with classical music, but a broader definition often includes other genres as well. The July 26 concert, for example, is excerpted from a jazz concert performed in Rochester last February.”


    The 23rd annual Habitat 500 Bike Ride will soon be coming through the Spring Valley area as 120 cyclists and 33 volunteers begin the 500-mile journey through southern Minnesota on July 12.
