How do you pronounce some of the Minnesota town names where your ancestors lived?

So, how would you pronounce the Minnesota city name of New Prague? I can always tell when a new person is on a weather or newscast here. They usually pronounce it New Prahg. It's actually pronounced New Prayg with a hard g.

City Pages has a neat article about "17 Minnesota cities and streets everyone mispronounces." I don't think everyone mispronounces these names but the article itself is good. Be sure to read the comments for more items.
