WEEK OF MONDAY, MAY 14, 2018
Tegan Rodgers is a 6th grader at Winona Middle School. Tegan is a Mini Kix dancer for Winona Just for Kix. Tegan was injured in January, which side lined her until April. Tegan was so loyal to her team, she came to every dance practice and competition to cheer on her team, and was able to rejoin her team just in time to take 2nd place at the Just for Kix Nationals competition in Rochester. Tegan is a great role model for younger athletes, she is a fantastic listener, and a great team mate. Tegan is also involved in diving and softball.
Twins were born in Utah on Friday so of course they had to be named after the Star Wars legends, Luke and Leia. The parents have a Star Wars themed nursery at home and when they realized mom would be induced on May the Fourth, they decided that had to be their names. It's their middle names that are named after the famous characters. The twins are named Rowan Luke and Kai Leia. Check out the full story HERE
If you're on the market for a new grill, the possibilities can seem just about endless. If you're buying your very first grill, it can seem like a whole new language figuring out specs and sorting through what bells and whistles you really need. Get one you don't like, though, and you're kind of stuck with that expensive purchase for a while.
So before you shop, beware these mistakes to avoid when shopping for a new grill.

Alexa Cappelli is only 18 and already on her way to becoming a big star! We had a chance to check in with her about her experience so far on NBC's The Voice!
Alexa's bio from The Voice website:
Hometown: Upland, California
Resident: Upland, California
Alexa may only be in high school, but she has already made a huge impact on her community through music. Alexa's younger brother passed away from Hypoplastic left heart syndrome when he was just 32 hours old, and her family created a non-profit organization in his memory to provide essentials for families with seriously ill children. Alexa acts as the entertainment coordinator for the foundation and always incorporates music into the events. She is excited to audition in front of her idol, Kelly Clarkson.

Justin Kilgore's amazing experience on The Voice sadly ended this week when he was eliminated in the Knockouts but he has big plans for the future! We chatted with him about his experience and what's next:
Justin's official bio from NBC's The Voice's Website:
Hometown: Buffalo, Texas
Resident: Austin, Texas
Growing up in a small town, Justin felt the need to suppress his sexuality, and in turn, he didn't feel that he could pursue his love for country music unless he was hiding who he really was. In his sophomore year, he made the difficult yet precedent-setting decision to be the first male cheerleader in his town. Justin came out at 19 and moved to Austin soon after to pursue music full-time, but he was still struggling to chase his true musical passions, which led him to try pop/EDM music. Feeling discouraged, Justin ended up quitting music altogether. But when an opportunity to audition for "The Voice" came up, he could not ignore his love for country music and knew this was his chance to be the artist he was meant to be.
