Erich SchaffhauserI’ve learned many valuable lessons pushing manure. As a kid I spent countless hours in the barn, developing a strong work ethic and creative imagination. I never thought those times would prepare me for my career, but now I’m in Aberdeen to prove that they have.

As the bureau reporter in this area, I look forward to telling your stories, but I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you mine. It starts in a village of northern Switzerland named Kradolf where I was born and lived for three years. At that point, my family moved to Northwest Minnesota where I grew up on a dairy farm. My parents sold the cows when I was entering junior high and bought horses that I always enjoyed riding.

After high school, I went to the University of Minnesota to study broadcast journalism and also learned American Sign Language while there. Now that I live in Aberdeen, I enjoy putting my ASL skills to work every Sunday and Wednesday interpreting for church.

I haven’t lived on the farm since high school, but I’m not too far removed from the days of shoveling manure and fighting with cows. So if you have a story idea that would involve getting mud…or anything else on my shoes, don’t hesitate to send it my way. I’ll be happy to cover it.

Wagon train celebrating South Dakota's 125th anniversary is nearing an end. (Quick side note that has nothing to do with the wagon train but working on a story about the wagon train made me think of it-- My dad road horse from Canada to South America back in the day. He's a strange but interesting.) Now back to my story for today, it'll run some time tonight on KELOLAND. Have a great weekend everyone.

I was outside last night. The spraying helped, but there are still plenty of mosquitoes. Oh well, I live in eastern South Dakota. There are a lot of perks to life here, too.
