Editorial

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...
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.

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’...
