If you have been following my blog, it has moved from Area Voices to Staff Blogs at wctrib.com.

The change will be easy if you enjoy reading about my journey of moving from Florida and returning to live in the rural community of Murdock, Minnesota. You can find my blog by just going to wctrib.com, look under Staff Blogs found in the center of the home page or go directly to http://mnnativedaughter.areavoices.com.

I’m now working at the West Central Tribune as a reporter and photographer part-time. The job started this week and I’m very excited to return and live in area my family has lived for at least 133 years. My family of my father, the late Martin J. Walsh Jr., were immigrants that moved to Minnesota. If you are from Litchfield, you might just be one of my classmates from Litchfield High School!

In the years 1875 and 1876 the late Archbishop John Ireland started a Catholic colony adjacent to Murdock and DeGraff, the very location my family still has a farm. A church was first built in DeGraff, St. Bridget parish. The people in Murdock did not have a way to travel to DeGraff, so a second parish was started as a mission church of DeGraff in 1894 in Murdock, now know as Sacred Heart.
