Singing is nothing new for 11-year-old Aedyn Colville of Marty.
Her mother Dina says Aedyn was barely walking when she started to hum, all the time.
Her kindergarten teacher took her aside to explain that her constant humming was distracting to other students. “But you don’t understand. Singing is my life,” was her response.
“I knew since she was little that she could carry a tune,” said Dina, Aedyn’s mother.
In March, Aedyn auditioned to sing the National Anthem at a Twins game. She was selected to sing at the 1 p.m. game Sunday, Aug. 24.

Only about four percent of Boy Scouts achieve the highest rank of Eagle Scout. Among the general population, it’s less than one percent.
Hunter Schreifels joined an elite group Sunday afternoon at the Boy Scout Honor Court, a ceremony officially making him an Eagle Scout.
A public service project is part of the process getting to Eagle Scout. Hunter’s project was completed this past summer. He expanded the overhang over the concession stand at the Pearl Lake ball park, extending it about 10 feet to be even facing the field. He also put cement under the overhang, and there’s a fresh coat of paint on everything. The overhang project provides a place for fans to get out of the sun or rain.
The students at Holy Cross Catholic School celebrated Catholic Schools Week last week. As part of their service project, the kids made seven fleece-tie blankets. These adorable blankets are being donated to New Beginnings in
