It's ever so much fun pulling your hair so much that only tufts are left, because you are at war with the computer. We ran such-and-such a story not too long ago and it should be available, with the photos I took, in our virtual library. But lo, it has vanished into the ethernet. Just gone. I am...
One of my most memorable assignments in covering the news came nearly three years ago when I ventured to North Mankato to meet a woman celebrating a big birthday. Oh, but this was no ordinary birthday. At the time, Otilla Anderson was already a centenarian and getting ready to celebrate her 105th...
My baby cousin, Harper, was born exactly a week befroe my birthday. Between Oct. 10 and Oct. 17 I feel as if I'm allowed to celebrate for a week straight. Harper is a lot like how you would imagine most 4-year-olds, but somehow she's just a little bit more. I don't typically hang out with children...

I don't know about this back-to-school thing. Buy the books and a notebook or two, get the student ID card, find the right classroom, get ready to learn. Again. Holy J. Moley. Have wanted to do “something different” for a while now. A light flashed on in the ol’ cerebral cortex and I mumbled...
As a 15 year old, I remember being humbled in receiving a couple of state awards for photos I took for my hometown newspaper where I worked throughout high school, and being in awe of the professional journalists who captured many of the big awards. They seemed like giants in the newspaper industry...
It's suddenly prom season. Unbeknown to me, the season has crept up on us. While the date still lies three months away, my friends have taken no notice of it. They are concerned with much more then the fact that prom is still three months away. We have to get ready now. This minor fact was left...
It's offically Super Bowl season. The sports worl turns its attention to Minnesota. Millions of Americans will be watching as the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles afec off in the big ga,e. which will be held in Minneapolis, just 75 miles northeast of Kasson.
