Editorial

After at least 20 years of talking and construction is it possible that Highway 14 will finally be upgraded to a four-lane roadway through all of Dodge and Steele Counties? It seems like the project has been in the talking stage for almost as long as anyone can remember. The project has gotten a...
This week brought several milestones to the high school sport’s scene.  Senior John Rumpza reached a significant plateau when he scored the 2,000th point of his career. That is a goal that not too many high school basketball players achieve, and that is really a mark for which to take pride.   Also...
Walking with a cane in hand is about the only way Jonathan Isenor can get around these days. It’s a far cry from the way he was able to maneuver while acting on stage in high school and college.  Isenor, who grew up in Blooming Prairie, went on to St. Cloud State University where he majored in...
I’ve mentioned them several times over the past month or so but once again the cast and crew of the Triton One Act Play deserve a mention. Last Thursday they performed “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” before an audience of play goers and three judges at St. Catherine...
The cast and crew of the one-act play are scheduled to perform tomorrow afternoon at the state finals at O’Shaughnessy Auditorium on the St. Catherine’s University campus in St. Paul. McKaila Klejeski, a member of the Triton FFA and co-president of the organization, has recently been named the Star...
Gala a resounding success By all accounts, the annual gala in support of the local Boys and Girls Club proved to be a most satisfying event. Early estimates indicate a profit similar to last year’s $20,000 total.  From the raffle drawings, to the auctions, to the program, to the food provided from...
In the newspaper world, it doesn’t do us any good if readers can’t get our paper.  Such was the case last week—at least for some of our readers. For almost three days, our newspapers mysteriously went missing in action.  We have a large base of subscribers in Owatonna who normally get their...
Wins and losses Last week the girls’ basketball team clinched at least a tie for the Gopher conference title with two league wins, and a victory in either one of their last two conference games will hand them the championship outright. They will supplant neighboring NRHEG as the titleholder after...
To say I was the least bit dumbfounded at our successful run in this year’s Minnesota Newspaper Association awards contest may be a gross understatement. Astonished may be a more accurate description of how I came away after winning one of the most coveted journalism awards in the state last week....
It is funny how sometimes stories just appear when you least expect them. I recently stopped over at Triton Middle School to talk to Principal Mark Raymond about the robotics program that he hopes to start at Triton. When I went into his office, there was a woman sitting at the table signing a book...
