I think the deal was, I was the 3-year-old king of our house. Was the youngest of five and as the attention all to myself. Photos show me next to my big brother, smiling like a champ. Then they brought Bob home. Immediate competition. And for the next several years we fought and scratched and...
There are times when I love to see conflict and hardcore drama in movies, but one movie offering right now at theatres offers something a bit different. It provides an inspirational uplift and hope. The movie is “I Can Only Imagine,” and it shares the story of a popular Christian band, MercyMe,...
Mister Rogers made quite an impression on his cousins back in rural Kasson. The future children’s TV star visited Roger and Ruth Rogers in the mid-1940s, long before Fred Rogers became the genial creator of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the hugely popular kids’ TV show which aired from 1968-2001. “...
Approximately 74 percent of adults in Minnesota said they identified as Christians in 2014, according to a religious landscape study conducted by the Pew Research Center.  Consequently, nearly three-fourths of us will be celebrating Easter this Sunday. Most of us can give a brief explanation of why...
Easter bunnies, bright baskets, chocolates, eggs and a whole lot more. They’re just some of the memories I have as a child around Easter time.  But perhaps one of my greatest memories surrounding Easter was getting to bed early the night before and rolling out of bed at 3:30 in the morning. Yep,...
As a tyke I stood in our backyard at home and joined my mom in chatting up neighbors over the fences.   To the south was Ella Mae, a feisty lady whose garage smelled like apples and who paid me $4 to mow her lawn and shovel her walk and driveway. That was more than enough cash for a kid to buy...

When I was growing up, it seemed so simple to know exactly what agriculture provides society. Granted I grew up on a crop and livestock farm in central Minnesota to help bolster my knowledge.  I guess I had the inside scoop on many facets of agriculture that have served me well throughout my life....
Anything can happen. That’s what the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament (aka ‘March Madness’) is all about, and why millions of Americans will be watching the first round this weekend.  However, to discover why we love this tournament, we have to go back to the founding of America.  Back...
Guess what? I’m retiring! My fellow Baby Boomers are retiring at a furious rate – about 11,000 each day, according to the Washington Post. This includes high school classmates and many friends born from 1946-1964 (a long generation), who saved their money and can sleep late and do nothing if they...
