Glo Wollen reacts with glee as she is named the 2014 pickled herring contest winner sponsored by the Sons of Norway Lodge.

Petersburg's Fedrelandet #23 Sons of Norway membership should take a bow. According to Rikke Saetermo who hails from Alta, Norway, Petersburg is more Norwegian than many communities in Norway. Saetermo (a visiting foreign exchange student) elaborated that Petersburg's version of Little Norway represents a time past in her home country. (See interview in last week's Petersburg Pilot)

Saetermo explained, "It's old Norwegian. Norway is nothing like this at home, but I definitely see some old stuff that I know that my great-grandparents had.... Norway tries to be America."

What a great complime...
