November is, as usual, a busy month at the Veteran's Service Office. We'll see another Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving come and go. I'd like to remind veterans that there are still veteran's benefits available through the State Soldier's Assistance Program. Call the office for more details. Item of interest: During training last Monday at the VA Medical Center in Minneapolis, I learned that Two Harbors now has a VA Contract Nursing Home. Of course, a veteran must meet certain eligibility requirements. Benefits and Information in Brief Veteran's Day is Monday, Nov. 11.

Exercise has been shown to decrease levels of tension, elevate and stabilize mood, improve sleep, and improve self-esteem. Physical activity helps to bump up the production of your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins. Regular aerobic exercise can bring remarkable changes not just to your body, your metabolism, and your heart, but also to your spirits. Housecleaning can fill this role as easily as exercise at the gym.
If you have ever had your child bite either you or another child, you have undoubtedly asked yourself why. Not all children go through a phase of biting, however, it is not uncommon either. There are many reasons why children bite. It is your job as a parent or caregiver to figure out which of these reasons best describes why your child is biting. Once you have identified why they are biting you can better deal with the problem. Biting can occur due to anger, frustration, or as a means of communicating a message.
Thanks to the excellent article in the News Chronicle and the Duluth News Tribune, we got more publicity for our Knife River Lutheran Church Fish Cake Supper than we have ever had. As a result, we had more people visit our church than we have ever had for this annual tradition and we ran out of food! Please accept our apologies if you were one of the people who came to our church anticipating an excellent fish cake supper only to be turned away. We hope you will make a note for yourself to come back again in 2014 - and come early!
