The current Benton County News building above was built in 1949 after a fire destroyed the previous structure.
Recently the Foley area was treated to scenes of winter beauty as hoarfrost formed on many of the trees. Hoarfrost forms when the temperature of items on the ground are below freezing, and condensation of water vapor occurs. It is similar to the formation of dew, as moist air will be cooled when it comes in contact with the cold surfaces. The Central Minnesota area also experienced unseasonably warm temperatures with readings in the mid-forties on December 13 and 14.
