The corn harvest season for the Russell family ended Saturday, Nov. 13, with friends and family coming together to bring in the harvest. Farmer and Minatare native Scott Russell passed away on Oct. 29, from complications after surgery. While much of the crops had been harvested, Scott’s 130 acres of corn were still in the fields.
