Opinions

Take time to pause this next weekend during the 19th An- nual Blooming Prairie Cancer Auctions and think about how cancer has affected you, your family and friends. Cancer has indeed touched all of us in one way or another. Our hope to finding a cure and for protecting our loved ones in the future...
Steele County Times publisher Rick Bussler takes on the role of editor for the day at the Minnesota Newspaper Museum at the State Fair. Bussler also serves on the board of the Minnesota Newspaper Foundation, which operates the museum during the fair.
Part of my enjoyment with the Minnesota State Fair is to go work at the fair doing, what else, newspaper work. Besides doing stories and taking photos of local people at the fair, I also volunteer at the Minnesota Newspaper Museum, which is operated by the Minneso- ta Newspaper Foundation of which...
Janelle Kendall is the lead singer and guitarist for Walter’s Wheelhouse, which performed at the Steele County Free Fair. Kendall grew up in Blooming Prairie and now is the top prosecutor in Stearns County.
For the past several years as the top prosecutor handling what will likely go down as one of the greatest crimes ever in Minnesota’s history, Janelle Kendall has needed a stress reliever more than ever. She has found one through a love of music and sharing that passion as the lead singer for a band...

It’s with great sadness that I noticed yet another Minnesota newspaper has ceased publication within the past couple weeks. This is at least the second newspaper in the state to shut down this year.  The Aug. 1 edition of the Farmington-Rosemount Independent Town Pages was its last. The newspaper...
I remember about seven years ago, I was at the urgent care with my mom. I don’t remember what I was there for, some sort of illness or sports injury, but that doesn’t matter.  What matters is I looked up at the TV in the waiting room and saw nothing but pure sadness as the news broke that a...
I was smothered in patriotism at the Steele County Free Fair last week. U.S. President Donald Trump has been caught showing his love for America by embracing the American flag. I got a little wrapped up in America on opening day of the fair. I was part of the Blooming Prairie Honor Guard that...

A Christian music heavyweight ended up bringing church to the fair in Albert Lea last Friday night. It was a welcome sight at the Freeborn County Fair as Casting Crowns brought church to the fair and packed in a large grandstand crowd. What made it even more extraordinary is that this was the first...
From the time I got picked up in Bloomington by my first publisher to visit St. James, there has been one thing that has constantly told to me.  There’s only two seasons in Minnesota winter and road construction season.  After living in Minnesota for more than two years I have realized that it’s...
