Tell your stories

June 11, 2018
Estherville News

The Estherville News staff is looking for local people to be in some of our upcoming stories. If you or someone you know is a fit, contact us at or 712-362-2622.

Thanks, Dad: Please call the office or email to set up a time Amy or Karrie or David can talk to you about the impact your dad has had on your life for our Father's Day story June 14, and for a lighter sidebar, what is something fun you and your dad do together? We are also open to dads' stories about how you've changed due to becoming a father. Any of these would be best with a photo of you and your dad, dad and the kid(s) as appropriate. We would love to take the photograph, as possible.

Memories of Vietnam: We are working on a special section to run in the Thursday, June 21 edition about local people touched by the Vietnam War. Specifically, we would like to talk to spouses and other family members who have saved letters from war, our local veterans who have a friend named on the wall, "kids" now in their 40s-60s who remember when a family member was away or are connected (e.g. they don't remember but were born while dad, uncle, etc. was away), parents and other loved ones with memories, the families of Emmet County vets whose names are on the wall.

Summertime: Send us your photos of summer vacation fun, whether you travel far away or have a staycation nearby. We can use clear photos with all the people in them identified. Depending on the response to this, it might be ongoing in the paper or saved up for the August edition of Our Hometown.

Women farmers: Last fall, Amy published two stories about women who have inherited and are managing their family farms in Emmet County. Other journalists Amy met at Columbia University this past week were very interested in those stories and in learning more about women running farms. We want to talk to any women (including teenaged girls) who are taking an active part in managing or learning to manage their family farm. Based on feedback from journalists Amy met, this story could go national.

Thank you for the privilege of telling your stories and for being part of the Estherville News.
