Opinions

At some point during this time of the year, I say the same thing. Why did we plant so many trees?  This occurs when I am raking a lawn full of leaves. Before we moved in over 40 years ago, the area had been a corn field, so there was nothing here but a new house and a newly seeded lawn. So...
The shovels are going to be flying with dirt this Friday as state leaders, law enforcement officials and others mark the ceremonial beginning of the Hwy. 14 expansion between Dodge Center and Owatonna. This is a long time a coming. Nearly 30 years to be exact. That’s right some people have been...
Music definitely gets into your bloodstream and that's what happened to our foursome that attended the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre successful production, Mamma Mia. Judy and I have seen many wonderful productions over the years at Chanhassen, which seems like it is on the other end of the world. Even...
It became a ritual for me every year during the fall harvest season. I hopped into the bright green John Deere combine with a Dodge County farmer. When I first started this tradition back in 2014, it basically was to get a personal perspective on the harvest season and what the crops looked like....
As the editor of a local community newspaper, it’s common to field lots of questions throughout the week from various people regarding different aspects of the newspaper.

As long as I can remember, the newspaper always played a relevant role in the community I grew up in as well as in my own life. From the time I had my picture along with my prize-winning hog published in the local newspaper as a young 4-H member, I have always cherished the local newspaper as being...
The Minnesota Twins are champions again, claiming the Central Division crown in the American League with 101 victories. If you have been on the Twins bandwagon before and jumped off, jump back on and enjoy the excitement of possibly heading to another World Series. The 2019 regular season has been...
