BATTLE LAKE, Minn. — Lee Evavold still doesn’t know which cow kicked him. The lifelong farmer was delivering a calf last month when one of his animals struck from behind, breaking his shoulder blade and five ribs. Evavold spent the better part of a week in the intensive care unit at Sanford Health in Fargo after his wife insisted he go to the hospital. But the Evavolds still had planting to do.
FARGO — Albert Myers had three wishes in life: to build a log cabin, to publish his experience of the Vietnam War, and to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. He built the cabin in Casselton in the 1980s. His second wife, June, had his book published in 2011 as Alzheimer’s disease ate his memory. And Friday, he got his third wish. “It brings me to tears,” said his step-daughter, Jeannine Johnson. “It’s exactly what he deserves and should have.” It’s been a long road to Arlington for Myers, who died in February at the age of 66.
