Editorial

As I walked around the Steele County Fair last week, I couldn’t help but think how the fair is built on tradition. Some of those traditions keep growing stronger year after year. Such is the case with the 4-H livestock auction, which was held Saturday morning. It’s referred to as the 4-H Sale of...
As we all know, life is all about making the right choices. One of the areas where this is most imperative comes from operating a motor vehicle, especially when personal safety is at risk. Beginning this week, Minnesota is sinking some teeth into its texting law with higher fines. Drivers who...

In amongst all the lessons about the dairy operation at the Clover Glen Farm near Claremont, some folks received their breakfast through the air. Jim Kuper, known as...
In today’s issue, the staff at the Steele County Times is providing our readers something different than most weeks in our newspaper.  Granted, we have had special sections, tabs, etc., but we have never combined two topics into one section before. And that is what our readers will get in the first...

Well, that really depends on one’s perspective.  Perhaps this should read: And the losers are small town newspapers and the rural communities served by US Bank. The forthcoming Minnesota Vikings stadium in Minneapolis will be called US Bank...
