Some of the Newsleader team and their families join together Dec. 8 to sing carols and ring bells for the Salvation Army at Coborn’s on First Ave. N. in Sartell. The group received high praise from store-goers for their Christmas-lyrics improvisation skills, which has prompted them to cut their first album, “Extra-Extra! Sing all About It!” From left to right are Matt Bertsch of Sartell, Dave DeMars of Sauk Rapids, Janelle VonPinnon of St. Cloud, and Connor Kockler and Tracy Rittmueller, both of Sauk Rapids.

Bertsch has worked for the Newsleaders since 2015. She and her husband, Matt, and their three children live in Sartell where they also own and operate Four Seasons Window, Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning. Bertsch also stewards the “Reads and Seeds and Other Needs” Little Free Library in Sartell. The “Other Needs” portion of the library functions as a collection site for donations to the Salvation Army where Bertsch serves as a board member. Her other hobbies include volunteering at the food shelf, cooking, baking, and growing a vast array of fruit in her backyard orchard. Bertsch believes that every single person can choose to make the world a better place for someone else and at the end of the day the only question that matters is, “What kind of difference did you make?”
