Old and tired. No, I’m not referring to me, though I feel that way some days. That was actually the diagnosis given to us regarding the appearance of our newspaper last spring when we brought in a top-notch newspaper consultant to help us.  Kevin Slimp, who travels around the country helping...
Over this past year, we have been digging into the on-going battle against impaired driving with stories, columns and editorials about the devastating effects having one too many can have on our society. We had hoped to get through the year without an alcohol-related driving death in Dodge and...
It’s back to the magical world of Harry Potter, and even further back in time. This family friendly fantasy film follows Newt Scamander, a British wizard with an affinity for studying and collecting magical creatures, as he lands in New York City in 1926 with a magical suitcase full of fantastic...
May the force be with you for it’s certainly with this latest edition to the Star Wars universe. “Rogue One”, set between episodes three and four of the saga, follows a band of misfits and rebels on their mission to find a weakness in the evil galactic empire’s newest weapon, the Death Star. For...
An interesting cartoon came across my desk this week that not only gave me a chuckle, but it really hit it on the head in describing the plight of America’s newspapers, including your very own Dodge County Independent (DCI).  It’s a battle newspaper journalists face every day.  Silly in the sense...

Grabbing the Sunday newspaper has always been a weekend ritual around our house. For me, reading the front-page headlines allow me to satisfy my craving for the latest breaking news. Catching up on the news for a news junkie like me is nearly the same as a coffee drinker getting their caffeine fix...
Set sail with Disney’s newest princess, Moana. Set in the Polynesian islands, in an age of monsters and gods, “Moana” is a breath of fresh air in a genre normally packed to the gills with castles, fairies and dragons. Moana is a capable teenage girl and soon to be chief of her tribe. She wants to...
With the rush of the holiday season closing in on us, I encourage people to consider one important aspect of making the holidays joyful for others less fortunate—giving. As the year comes to a close, I’m so thankful for what I have in my life. I actually become overwhelmed with thankfulness,...
