Opinions

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...

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...
What started out as a normal work day last Tuesday ended up being quite terrifying and chaotic for several of our staff members at the Times office.  While in pursuit of a hot news story, managing editor Alan Van Ormer slipped on the icy steps leading into the Blooming Prairie Police Department,...
The sports week The loss by the basketball girls to Goodhue put the sub-section pairings into a bit of a muddle.  BP had the inside track for the number one spot until the Goodhue defeat, but now any one of four teams may wind up in the top position.  I am sure the locals would like another chance...
The awe of community journalism and its powerful impact on communities hit me at an age when most of my friends were busy concentrating on other things.  I still remember being a terrified 14-year-old sitting outside the office of my hometown newspaper in Brownton, hoping there would be some way to...
