Minnesotan Sunisa (Suni) Lee brought home the gold in Olympic individual gymnastics. Lee, an 18-year-old from St. Paul, had the entire country behind her bid to bring home the gold after Simone Biles withdrew from competition. Lee grabbed the gold when she turned in a brilliant floor exercise to...
Most people have had one of those days when reality crowds out life itself. I’ve had one of those months and July is not over. It started out with the Fourth of July, our nation’s birthday. It was a rather uneventful day for most of us. July Fourth is a big deal across the nation. However, Kasson,...
Dodge County Free Fair was over the top successful! Cars were lined up on Mantorville Avenue looking to find a space to park. Mini donuts were flying out of the machine and the Dodge County Dairy Association’s shakes and malts were in high demand each day of the fair. Keep in mind this was the...
As we embark on the Dodge County Free Fair, holding true to mid-summer heat, the hot humid days of summer are encroaching on our county. Corn has been surpassing the knee high by the Fourth of July and pushing to head high by the fair. Without rain, however, the corn and soybean crops will begin to...
Droves of people will be making their way to the one-year delayed Dodge County Free Fair that begins Wednesday, July 14 at the fairgrounds. After a year off due to the global pandemic, the excitement is building to get out and do what’s normal in southeast Minnesota. I’ve been enlisted to assist...
It would seem that the far left in this nation has lost its collective mind. For the first time in Olympic history a person born a male will compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as a woman. That’s right, Laurel Hubbard will be the first transgender in, get this, weightlifting for the New Zealand...
Just over a year ago the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul erupted into fiery chaos as a Minneapolis police killed George Floyd, a black man, after he (Floyd) had attempted to pass a fake $20 bill. Portions of the Twin Cities were set ablaze. The chaos spread to other cities throughout the United...
Corn and inflation are rising at a breakneck speed. Corn is nearing the height it normally is at July 4 – knee-high. Inflation is nearing an eight-year high of 4 percent. Couple that with higher gas prices, meat increases, and one gets a bleak look into the future as the world digs out from...
Corn is screaming in the field as hot weather invades southeastern Minnesota and causes a growth surge following our cool, wet May weather. Corn that was only a few inches a week or so ago is now a foot or more tall. It’s crazy to watch the surge. Who knows, corn may reach “knee high by July 4” if...
Graduation is over, the Twins are clawing their way out of last place and we’ve had enough rain to stave off a draught at least until mid-summer. May was, and usually is, an extremely busy month. Yes, there are graduation ceremonies (as opposed to the 2020 awkward commencement) and some had the...
