David Hanson has operated Hanson’s Apple Barn outside of Dodge Center for nearly 20 years. He has suffered with polio since he was a teenager.
One of my favorite fall activites is heading out to the apple orchard and loading up on some delicious apples.  A few weeks afo I had the pleasure of spending a couple hours at Hanson's Apple Barn on the west side of Dodge Center. David Hanson has been operating on orchard for about 20 years. ...
My mind on hyperdrive (about 99 percent of the time): Twins baseball Trump corruption nuclear war hot weather’s killin’ me how am I possibly going to get all this done can’t no way no how totally overwhelmed where to eat tonight maybe Chinese what’s going on this weekend I can’t believe so-and...
Something that I find so interesting about people is how they change.  People adapt and change with the flow of society or the trends of today. People change their looks, their hair, their clothes, the way they speak, the way they talk, and the way they think.  They say children are very...
Many churches have been featuring ‘Rally Sundays,’ kicking off the new educational year over the past few weeks. It’s like a fresh start as fall rolls around. Among other things, Sunday School, confirmation classes and Bible studies are topping the events at many area churches, along with, of...

My grandpa loves the newspaper.  During the summers when I was younger, we used to stay at my grandma and grandpa's house. We didn't like daycare, and my grandma was more than willing to watch us.  There are plenty of memories I have of my grandma's house, but the most distinct one is walking down...
This year’s Minnesota State Fair marked a special milestone for Minnesota newspapers. It was the 30th anniversary of the Minnesota Newspaper Foundation’s museum at the Fair.  I have been fortunate to be part of the foundation as one of its board directors for several years. During that time,...
My feet and back still hurt as I write this, nearly 35 years later. Young college students returning to school might be amazed to learn that, once upon a time, your predecessors had to stand in line to get their classes. And then they stood in line to get their books. Oy. Yes, it was the Dark...
