A one-of-its-kind winter sport had its day Saturday at Buck Hill in Burnsville. WinchFest 2013 celebrates a sport dreamed up by brothers Alex and George Miller. They started it a few years ago in the front yard of their parents’ Mendota Heights home.
Have you ever seen an extreme sport and wondered who the heck thought that was a good idea? Well the creators of WinchFest went ahead on rolled with a crazy idea.
The smooth flight through Congress that President Barack Obama’s education plans enjoyed could soon crash into Republican Rep. John Kline, a deficit hawk and retired Marine pilot who once carried the nation’s nuclear launch codes for Ronald Reagan.
