Editorial

It’s hard to imagine that May 1 will be here in the next two weeks. That means the first four months of 2015 will be history. Where has it gone? On Saturday, I already saw farmers out in the fields north of Blooming Prairie and west of Waseca. This means farmers and producers are anxious to get the...
The bright orange cones along Interstate 35 in Owatonna signify one thing: the start of the summer road construction season in Minnesota and around the country. And it is going to be a busy road construction season in Steele County. Medford will be completing its work, while Blooming Prairie will...
About this time last year, the New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva School District was celebrating a state basketball championship – the girls’ second  consecutive title. This year the Panthers won another highly competitive competition and it wasn’t in basketball or in any other sport, for that...
Christ has risen! Christians across the world celebrated Holy Week and Easter to mark the most significant event in human history—the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  My parents always instilled in me the importance of Easter going back to my childhood days of getting up in the wee...

For the past couple of weeks the News Enterprise has been looking at some of the ways people in Dodge County and the surrounding areas are dealing with food insecurity problems. Food insecurity doesn’t have to mean going hungry. Rather, it’s not having a consistent, affordable access to healthy...
Writing a weekly column can be difficult at times. It’s not so much the writing aspect of it, but rather coming up with a relevant topic that is going to have broad appeal to readers.  Over the past five years since I began this column, I have written about a variety of topics. Some of them seem to...
Last thoughts of winter Although the weather may not be conducive to moving on to a new season, some last thoughts from the winter sports are still in order. I was sad to see the girls lose to Goodhue in the sub-section semi-finals, as I have followed the team closely all season and had hopes, like...
