Stearns: St. Cloud-Minnesota Outreach

(old site)

Read our blog and follow us on facebook and twitter!

I (Sal) used to travel through St. Cloud on my way to the cities to visit a friend back in the early 2000. Now that friend lives in Morris. I drop in this mid-point city between Morris and the Twin Cities whenever I need to do an errand or something.

Other Cities/Towns in Stearns County


I decided to do a site on this small town /citiy I've heard about at times today after meeting the manager of the Groen Turkey Farm (29200 County Rd Ne Belgrade, MN 56312 (320) 254-3410) here yesterday (Saturday, June 23rd of 2007). My friend Eric and I met him and his family at Taco Bell in Alexandria, MN after watching an air show there.

  • World's LArgest Crow, from

  • ""AAWWRRR! AWWWWR! Welcome to Crow Country!"
    A huge black crow sits atop a 31-foot-long branch, itself atop a 25-foot-tall cement pedestal. Eighteen feet tall -- in all, 43 feet high -- this biggest of all birds has an eerie, pagan idol quality, particularly since it's so massive, so well-done, and so out in the middle of nowhere.
    The crow and broad surrounding pavilion were erected in the wake of the 1988 state centennial, funded partially by a grant from the Celebrate Minnesota Committee. The encircling wall is made of 6,000 individually purchased bricks. Flags of the 50 states and many European nations flutter over the park. Descendants of the early German, Polish, Danish and other settlers can picnic under their respective flags.
    Crow statue.Inside the crow's base is a tiny self-guided museum. Only a few displays of bleached, dusty detritus from the Centennial celebration survive: Belgrade T-shirts, commemorative Frisbees, and beverage insulators. Push a button and a prerecorded narration tells you more than you'd ever want to know about the crow and the county. The voice excuses all of this weirdness because crows, like the humans who admire them, are "resourceful" and "mate for life and remain close to their families."
    The crow, a fiberglass sculpture created by F.A.S.T. and supported with a metal skeleton, is painted with black automotive paint. The black surface and high angle on the pedestal make decent photographs of the crow a challenge."

  • Former St. Cloud drug addict now helping others, Posted at: 11/03/2008 12:31:26 PM (KSAX) ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP)

  • "... - Susan LaSota saw what was happening but supported her son, Korey Sufka. And Sufka made that difficult.
    Sufka began using drugs at 15 while a student at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. Plenty of trouble followed, including Sufka spending time in half a dozen juvenile correctional facilities before he was 18 and then time in several Minnesota jails after he turned 18...
    Carol Tembreull has known Sufka for about five years. She is on the Re-Entry Project's board of directors and got to know Sufka while volunteering for Residents Encountering Christ. REC is a two-day retreat for jail or prison residents designed to give them a chance to learn about how Christ can change their lives...
