At the opening of the Buffalo City Council meeting on Monday, February 3, Mayor Teri Lachermeier declared the week of February 7 – 14 as “A Week for Hearts: Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week.” Joining in the proclamation were James and Elise O’Neill and their daughter Avery.

Judging by expressions, one would never tell who won last Friday’s girls basketball game between Buffalo and No. 2 ranked Wayzata. While Trojan players and coaches looked less than satisfied going through the post-game handshake line, Bison players were sharing a few hugs and smiles. The final...
A regular-season record of 10-13-2 is hardly eye popping. However, when you play a top-20 ranked team on a weekly basis like the Buffalo girls’ hockey team did, a 10-win season doesn’t look all that bad. Among the 10 wins was a key 2-1 road victory last Thursday at No. 19 ranked Rogers. Bison goals...
