times when a whole community mourns. Such is the case this week
in Warroad and Roosevelt with the death of 18 year old Clint Quibodeaux. Clint died when his pickup
was struck by a
train Friday evening, January 2nd, in
At the family service held on Tuesday evening, his family and friends remembered Clint as a fun loving guy and a good friend. Laughter and tears were abundant as they reminisced about Clint after his mother, Denise Grussing, told of the evening they had spent with Clint and the subsequent crash that took his life.
I attended the visitation and service since I have met Denise through some of the events I’ve covered. I’ve worked with her husband and Clint’s step-dad Jon Michael of KQ-92. John Quibodeaux, Clint’s dad, is one of Bill Marvin’s caretakers so I’ve talked to him on occasion. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Clint’s family and close friends at this time of loss.

Management and I got a taste of what hockey parents go through

After the Bantam game, I took the family home. Then Alyssa and I went to Warroad to watch the Roseau versus Warroad Girl’s Hockey game. We again met my cousin there since his niece, Shelby Amsley-Benzie, plays goalie for Warroad. The storm must have kept people away because there were many empty seats. I thought both teams played well and Marvin, a goalie in High School, liked what he saw in the Roseau goalie. The rematch between Roseau and Warroad should be another good game.
The next morning, we trekked into Roseau to watch the B-Bantam Championship game between White Bear Lake and Grand Rapids. White Bear, which had three easy games in the tournament coming into this one, running one score to 18-1, ran into a buzz saw. Rapids dominated, again winning 5-2. Cousin Marvin was ecstatic as his son played very well and was the team captain to receive the trophy.
Another week in the Great North, see you next week!
Where is this scenic river shot taken? Hint: Last year, the owner of this land hired a horseman with his team of Percherons to skid logs that were cut from the banks of the river.
Last week’s picture was taken in the famed Avenue of Pines stretch of State Highway 46 between Deer River and Northome.
