Graduation Day is coming soon for those across the Steele County Times and News Enterprise coverage areas. Over the next few weeks those graduating will be getting everything together for that special day in May, or in some cases, June. Our publications have two senior interns that will also be...
Seeing photographs or watching videos of inmates locked up in Minnesota’s prison system or any images of prison won’t be happening anytime soon.  The Minnesota Department of Corrections has placed a camera ban for any prison interviews conducted by the news media. In changing the policy in February...
I have a confession.  I recently was locked up behind prison bars in a facility that once was deemed the bloodiest 47 acres in America. In fact, it was a family affair as three other members of my family joined me in prison.  It was short lived, however. After three hours of confinement, my family...
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?

This week marks the 20th consecutive week in which we have published letters to the editor on the opinion page under the heading of “Mailbag.” Many of those weeks going back to early...
Happy first week of spring. If this week has proved anything, it is that March weather in Minnesota can be unpredictable. Just when we thought winter might be over, we got hit Sunday afternoon and evening with another shot of snow. Fortunately, the weather is warming and the sun is getting high...
This past week’s temperatures makes it seem like spring is here. But living in Minnesota, I’m sure that there will be at least one, if not more, days of cooler weather and possibly even snowstorms heading our way. When I think of spring I really think of baseball.
