This hilarious piece appeared on The Babylon Bee newsletter. It’s a tongue-in-cheek satire that is worth a look.  Hey! Are you a kid? Are you being raised by normal middle-class parents who love you and care for you? Uh-Oh, watch out! They may be dangerous domestic terrorists! It’s important to...
Last Thursday was a bit more extraordinary than most days in Kasson or Dodge County for that matter. As people began migrating back to Kasson via Mantorville Ave., a combine lost its left front wheel. Fortunately, the operator of the unit was able to jump the curb (even with a corn head on the...
Kasson-Mantorville Lions Club is a local service club that puts words into action. It's a club that has had impact on Kasson parks, recreation areas and displaying Old Glory on U.S. holidays. At the September meeting of the KM Lions, a prestigious award was presented to two individuals who made...

With Labor Day behind us and Marigold Days this weekend, there’ll be plenty of family fun for those...
Most of our summer consisted of hot, humid sunny days, great for kids and adults who were able to spend those days at a swimming pool. Last Wednesday there were children with their adult supervisors at the Mantorville Dam fishing, playing on the rocks and there was actually water flowing over the...
Summer has been great for corn and soybean growth (occasionally, one could hear corn stalks groan as they shot skyward). It’s also been a tremendous summer for kids, moms and dads at the Kasson Aquatic Center, Byron’s pool, West Concord’s recently upgraded facility and the pool in Dodge Center. It...
Dodge County Independent has been around 154 years and counting. However, there’s one thing lacking—you. Our readership circulation is just a fraction of our population. Whose fault is that?
