Well-known News Anchor in Southeast Minnesota Saying Goodbye After 13 Years

If you missed the news during the news broadcast on Monday, May 23rd, Chris Kuball and Laura Lee shared the news that after 13 years, Besty Singer was leaving the news desk at ABC 6 News to spend time with her family and take care of her parents.

It's hard to believe... after 13 years as an anchor at ABC 6 News - KAAL TV Betsy Singer is saying goodbye.
Betsy and I have worked directly with each other for nearly the last decade. We've joked around, shared lots of laughs, griped about a few things and helped each other with some of life's daily happenings along the way. I will always appreciate our time spent together on the desk and some of the knowledge you've shared.
She's an amazing soul... a dedicated journalist, anchor, wife, daughter and one of the hardest workers I've every seen. She does it all, in the community, helping out with countless events and organizations... in the newsroom too, always booking that next interview.
I will miss seeing you every day, friend. I wish you all the best in whatever direction the path takes you down next. - Chris Kuball Meteorologist Facebook page

Personal note for Betsy

Betsy, I know the community will miss you.  I personally have enjoyed hearing you speak and emcee at many events and have admired your professionalism for years.  Thank you for all that you have done for this community and the people in it.  Glad you are still going to be in the area.  And since we seem to know a lot of the same people (or so I'm told), I'm sure I will see you in the future! - Jessica Williams

Rochester, Minnesota Athletes Need a Miracle for Their Field!

The Miracle Field in Rochester, Minnesota needs a miracle!

Back in 2006, Miracle Field was constructed to allow all abilities the opportunity to get on the field to enjoy a game of baseball rather than just cheering from the sidelines. The field is a barrier-free, handicapped-accessible baseball field that is enjoyed by many but unfortunately, the field is no longer safe and needs to be restored.

The cost to restore Miracle Field is $200,000 and thankfully, over $90,000 has already been donated.

With the communities help, the goal of $200,000 will be met, and "Play Ball" will once again be cheered in June 2022.
