Swift Current

called the South Saskatchewan River ''kisiskâciwan'', meaning "''it flows swiftly.''" Fur traders found the creek on their westward treks in the 1800s, and called it "Rivière au Courant" (lit: "river of the current"). Henri Julien, an artist traveling with the North-West Mounted Police expedition in 1874, referred to it as "Du Courant", and Commissioner French used "Strong Current Creek" in his diary. While it took another decade before

being officially recorded, the area has always been known as "Swift Current". Tourism Swift Current The settlement of Swift Current was established in 1883, after the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) surveyed a railway line as far as Swift Current Creek. In 1882, initial grading (Land grading) and track preparation commenced, with the first settlers arriving in the spring of 1883. During the early part of its

Northfield, Minnesota

in 2004 (November 2004). The next year, following the acquisition by MPR, WCAL was transformed into MPR's third service, "The Current". Services With the addition of later stations, MPR originally offered a mix of classical music and NPR news talk programming on a single service. Beginning in 1991 (1991 in radio), MPR's programming split in two, forming separate news and classical music services (although one station in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan still carries a combination of those two services). The 2005 acquisition of WCAL (KCMP) in Northfield, Minnesota, which covers the Minneapolis-St. Paul and Rochester (Rochester, Minnesota) areas, provided the opportunity to launch another music service, "The Current". This third service has gradually expanded to most of southern eastern Minnesota. About The Current Programming on The Current is mostly locally-produced. The Current is carried on seven transmitters, serving a majority of the state's population. The main transmitter is KCMP (89.3 FM), licensed to Northfield (Northfield, Minnesota) on the southeastern periphery of the Twin Cities, though the signal covers most of the metro area. A lower-power station, KMSE (88.7 FM), serves Rochester (Rochester, Minnesota) and southeastern Minnesota, and KCMP translators serve Hinckley (Hinckley, Minnesota) and Mankato (Mankato, Minnesota). http: radio services the_current about In addition, the station is broadcast on a HD Radio sideband channel to listeners of KNSR in St. Cloud (St. Cloud, Minnesota) and KPCC (KPCC (radio station)) in Los Angeles. The Current also streams online at http: radio services the_current streams.shtml in a variety of formats. thumb right Riverside, 1876. (Image:Riverside-1876.jpg) The city was founded in the early 1870s beside the Santa Ana River by John W. North, a staunch temperance-minded abolitionist (abolitionism) from Tennessee, who had previously founded Northfield, Minnesota. A few years after, the navel orange (Orange (fruit)) was planted and found to be such a success that full-scale planting started. Riverside was temperance (Temperance movement) minded, and Republican (Republican Party (United States)). There were four saloons in Riverside when it was founded. The license fees were raised until the saloons moved out of Riverside. Brown and Boyd, Vol 2. Investors from England and Canada transplanted traditions and activities adopted by prosperous citizens. As a result, the first golf course and polo field in Southern California were built in Riverside. thumb right Riverside, 1900 (Image:Riverside-1900.jpg) History Sherrill was named for two brothers, Adam and Isaac Sherrill, and was originally called Sherrill's Mound or Mount, since the city is sited at the base of a prominent hill. In 1856, Peter Fries, an Austrian immigrant (immigration), built a large, stone inn at the main crossroads of the city. It was popular with newlyweds, and Jesse James (Jesse James (outlaw)) and his gang were reported to have stayed there prior to their famous raid on Northfield, Minnesota. The structure has survived and has been restored as the Black Horse Inn. Sherrill and the surrounding rural district received large numbers of German (German American) immigrants in the 19th century. German Catholic (Roman Catholic Church) (Ss. Peter and Paul (Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church (Sherrill))), German Lutheran (Lutheranism) (St. Matthew), German Methodist (Methodism), and German Evangelical (Evangelical and Reformed Church) churches were founded and remain active. Sherrill was one of ten "Beer Towns" incorporated in Dubuque County in 1933, to ensure that the city's taverns could serve beer, under a possibly mistaken interpretation of Iowa law that licenses to dispense beer could only be granted to premises inside incorporated places. Sherrill's post office was established in 1858, with Peter Fries as postmaster. Its Zip Code is 52073. * Lakeville (Lakeville, Minnesota) (to the north-northwest) * Northfield (Northfield, Minnesota) (to the south-southeast, just across the county line in Rice County (Rice County, Minnesota)) Today, the town is chiefly a bedroom community for nearby Northfield (Northfield, Minnesota) and the more distant Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. The juxtaposition of Dundas and Northfield and their disparate zoning policies and attitudes toward development have led to some unusual growth patterns. Dundas is home to a number of businesses, such as an off-sale liquor store and two bars that would be unable to get licenses to operate in Northfield. Another attraction is the recently opened bistro, Fermentations '''Goodsell Observatory''' is a building on the campus of Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. It was constructed in 1887 and was, at the time, the largest observatory in the state of Minnesota. It was named for Charles Goodsell, who donated much of the land on which Carleton was founded. Goodsell was built to replace Carleton's original observatory (built in 1877), which was razed in 1905 to make room for Laird Hall. Goodsell Observatory is on the National Register of Historic Places. Ordained as Congregationalist minister, he preached first in Brodhead, Wisconsin for two years, and then in Faribault, Minnesota beginning in 1865. The Congregational Church in Minnesota had established a college in the nearby town of Northfield (Northfield, Minnesota) in 1866, and in 1870, Strong was invited to become its first president. Initially, Strong declined the position, since the college's outlook seemed poor. Northfield College (Carleton College) had few students in its preparatory academy, and up until that fall, no students in its college department. It was operating out of an old hotel, the construction of its new building stalled due to inadequate materials and a lack of funds. The trustees were convinced Strong was the man to provide the leadership to improve the college's reputation and financial status, so they made him a more generous offer and this time he accepted.
