Young Students Making a Difference!

Pride, accomplishment and making a difference was all part of an incredible learning experience for a group of young Houghton elementary students here in the Copper Country. Mr. Klein’s 4th grade class read a book about an inner city school that was running out of funding for books and supplies and would have to close. The “characters/students” joined efforts and raised money through fundraising/donations to keep the school going.  This inspired this amazing group of young students and with the support of their teacher, Mr.Klein, school staff and administrators and Ross Linkinen of Thrivent Financial, the penny war began.  CCHS’s board member, Mac Marzke along with his beloved dog, Timber were honored to accept a donation for $1100.00 raised by this amazing group of students and teachers.  Thank you Houghton Elementary School, teachers, students, staff and the community for helping support the efforts of a determined group of incredible students who do make a difference!



Peanut and Butter, Purebred Bichon frise

Name: Peanut and Butter

Age: 13 and 11

Breed: Purebred Bichon frise

Gender: female

Story: SMALL DOG ALERT! Peanut and Buttercup’s owner died….so they need a home. Peanut, female, Bichon, age 11 and Buttercup female, Bichon, age 13 are in good health. They are spayed, up to date on shots and have recently been to the vet for a check up. They are used to being groomed every 6 weeks and would prefer a quiet home. They are bonded and would like to stay together. Peanut does get nervous if there is too much noise so older kids or a quiet home would be great. Buttercup is the alpha and she does mark occasionally – if she is watched she is fine. It would be best to have her on a special diet. They love to go for car rides, walks and sit on laps. They are looking for a forever home. The 2 of attached pictures are current with short hair the one picture of them with longer hair was when my mom was having them groomed more often. Thanks so much
