Editorial

Finally, it looks like spring may be here. I say that cautiously because we all know what kind of snow March can bring to southern Minnesota. I guess we better enjoy it while we can. A couple of short notes. First, this week we are continuing our series on addressing the food insecurity needs of...
  It was kind of interesting on Saturday morning watching a group of young people on ice, with brooms and pushing a ball toward a net. In a way it was like ice hockey, but not really. It was called broomball. And it is an event that the Blooming Prairie Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored at the ice...
Driving along on Minnesota roadways has basically become like swerving around an obstacle course.  If there’s not an idiotic driver you’re trying to avoid from bad driving behaviors, there’s always a pothole or two or three to dodge.  Our roads are nasty, disgusting and downright frightful.  The...
March has been known as FoodShare Month in Minnesota for years. It’s a time when individuals, churches, organizations and businesses can all come together and agree on one goal – restocking food shelves throughout the state. For once, there seems to be something everyone can agree on. It also...
Heading into March the old weather saying is if that March comes in like a lion it is going to go out like a lamb. Or Vice versa. In Blooming Prairie this saying goes out the window during the third month of the year.  Each month the Blooming Prairie Area Chamber of Commerce sends out a little...
Momentum worth reading. If you’ve never considered subscribing to our newspaper before, this may be the time to do so because we have incredible momentum that makes us worth reading. We’re in a similar situation as to what a Twin Cities TV station went through years ago.   Back in the early 1980s...
Sports to the front When the shooting is below average against a good team, winning is always a problem.  The Awesome Blossoms boys found that out in the sub-section finals, as they lost to a patient and good-shooting Goodhue team. The Blossoms had only seven turnovers in the game, but they couldn’...
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office has been very busy since the election with its new administration and transition plans. The first two months have been very productive with many improvements made by staff. We have a great group of men and women here at the sheriff’s office. With everyone...
Beyond frustration. That pretty much sums up my feelings toward the U.S. Postal Service after the past three weeks of our newspapers going AWOL.  At the beginning of the month, the newspapers for Owatonna subscribers began showing up several days late at the Owatonna Post Office. The postal service...
It can take 15 minutes to change your life. And that is exactly what happened to me. Between 9:45 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 20 I have no recollection of what happened to me. I had just finished taking photos at Blooming Prairie High School of the drug dogs checking out the school grounds...
