Opinions

I remember about seven years ago, I was at the urgent care with my mom. I don’t remember what I was there for, some sort of illness or sports injury, but that doesn’t matter.  What matters is I looked up at the TV in the waiting room and saw nothing but pure sadness as the news broke that a...
I was smothered in patriotism at the Steele County Free Fair last week. U.S. President Donald Trump has been caught showing his love for America by embracing the American flag. I got a little wrapped up in America on opening day of the fair. I was part of the Blooming Prairie Honor Guard that...

A Christian music heavyweight ended up bringing church to the fair in Albert Lea last Friday night. It was a welcome sight at the Freeborn County Fair as Casting Crowns brought church to the fair and packed in a large grandstand crowd. What made it even more extraordinary is that this was the first...
From the time I got picked up in Bloomington by my first publisher to visit St. James, there has been one thing that has constantly told to me.  There’s only two seasons in Minnesota winter and road construction season.  After living in Minnesota for more than two years I have realized that it’s...
From my battle of the socks to my latest skir- mish with the brush inthe yard, my summer has been filled with drama of all kinds. Life is relent- less. The more I try to duck the battles, the worse they hit me. Take my latest battle, for example. Mowing my yard became an obstacle course earlier...

In fact I am currently binge watching it on Netflix for at least the 10th time.  I think what I really like about the show aside from the...
Faded flowers end up in the compost. Sour milk goes down the drain. And old socks? Well, they normally end up back on our feet. Unless, of course, you have the problem I’m experiencing.  I’ve waged a war on my assortment of socks. And it’s one that I am quickly losing. Sport socks, dress socks,...
Almost anyone I ever talk to in my personal life can all agree on one thing.  They don’t like change.  When it comes to my professional career of listening and telling stories I find this to be the same thing. Whether it's someone retiring after a 40 year career, or a company going through major...
A poll released this week regarding retirement caught my attention. While I’m still many years away from being retired, it always seems to somehow peak my interest. The poll shows that nearly one-quarter of Americans say they plan to never retire. Another quarter of those surveyed say they expect...
