Just like most things now, I find that the holiday season comes and goes far too quickly. I don't think I was allowed much time to prepare for the season, much less celebrate it, but it is what it is. The one week that I get off pales in comparison to the month that my sister has been home now,...
You'll see lots of the same old New Year's resolutions on patch.com, a website featuring "an innovative way to find out about, and participate in, what's going on near around you." A total of 37 percent of people responding to a site poll said they resolved to Eat Better, Exercise More, and Spend...
There was no shortage of news- both good and bad- in Dodge County and across the region during 2017, and the stories and photos od decisions and events filled the pages of the DCI each week. In this edition of the DCI, we are recapping 2017 in a variety of ways. On the front page, we have the Top...
I’ll admit I have a bit of a problem.  I’m not sure if everyone has this problem, but I tend to keep … everything.  Throwing things away is hard sometimes, and other times I’m just lazy. But I really do have a problem with letting things go.  Recently my mom and I decided it would be a good idea to...
Sugarplums aren’t the only things dancing in my head this holiday season. As I gear up for another round of adventures with my college-aged children, visions of studying abroad and terroristic attacks are dancing through my head. On Saturday, my son, Caleb, will be leaving for a four-month study...
Jim, our good ol’ junior high physical education teacher, loaded a bunch of us kids onto the back of a pickup truck. The driver took us four miles out into the country east of Rochester, dropped us off, and left. A few of the older kids asked Jim what in tarnation was going on. “You can run, you...
It's been unbearably cold for the past few days. Just thinking about earlier last week and how it was in the 50's makes it feel like a completly different lifetime. Usually I’m not one to complain about the cold, as it never really bothers me. What bothers me about this unwelcomed cold, though, is...
Manny and Delia Guajardo hoped to assist 100 children with sweet deals on toys and clothes during the Christmas for Children Drive at their store, Sophia’s Thrift Store and Clothing Bank in Kasson. “It’s not going to happen,” Manny said. That’s because the number jumped to nearly 140 kids. And...
I don’t know how many times I’ve heard the phrase, “It’s just a number,” over the past few weeks. The unthinkable happened to me a week ago. I turned 50 years old on Dec. 12. As my family and friends celebrated the grand occasion with me, they kept reminding me that I shouldn’t worry about turning...
As the sun has set on another harvest season in Minnesota, perhaps one of the state’s oldest farmers reaped another bountiful crop, though not a record one. Within the past couple weeks, Lowell Trom, who farms on the south end of Dodge County, completed yet another harvest. The 88-year-old...
