Opinions

Many strange things have occurred in 2020. Nothing compares to what recently popped up in Wisconsin. A snowmobile was being transported on Highway 63 in northwest Wisconsin when the vehicle carrying to sled was pulled over. Now transporting a snowmobile in that neck of the woods is not uncommon....
Last Wednesday evening I received a text stating that someone had published an announcement supporting President Trump on the DCI Facebook site and concluded the notice that the president would be at the Rochester International Airport for a rally with a “Woot! Woot!” Thursday morning I held a...
Most of us have our own opinions. Watching last Thursday’s presidential debate is confirmation that the candidates have differing opinions on how the United States of America should function going forward. There have been differing opinions on whether to lockdown or open our society, businesses and...
I’m growing weary of the conflicting political polls offered up nationally, yard signs that scream for attention in the neighborhoods, political ads on television, social media and newscasters who are more opinion-caster than they are objective purveyors of news. I’d rather focus on local folks. A...
Even during a pandemic creative minds are at work to develop items for the 2020 Christmas tree. These are not your typical stars, wreaths or a partridge in a pear tree. Nope. These are unique to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s Santa ornament is wearing a facemask. That’s right. Jolly Old...
In many ways COVID-19 has brought out some of the worst and best of humankind. Yes, we’ve had riots in New York, Portland, Minneapolis, St. Louis and Seattle. The virus has also brought out the best. Take for example, the 57-year-old farmer near Crosby, N.D. whose cardiac arrest prompted his...

Yesterday was the final page in the legacy of Jon Christiansen and staff as the County Market grocery store we know as Erdman’s closed at 6 p.m. Erdman’s County Market had been an anchor in Kasson for 95 years. It was the go to place for some of the best meat products...
Who’s watching NFL games? Anyone? With all of the political drama becoming a part of sports – National Football League bowing to advocates of kneeling for the national anthem, National Basketball Association knuckling under to the likes of Colin Kapaernick and LaBron James (whose net worth is...
B-r-r-r it’s getting cold out there!That was the sense of many as Dodge County temperatures slid into the 40s as most returned to work after the Labor Day weekend. Accompanied by light rain, the miserable index hit in the negative zone. I picked up the September Successful Farming issue and on...
There are only 112 days remaining in 2020. Many can’t wait. Pending something catastrophic or a dramatic resurgence of COVID-19, the New Year, 2021, will be a true time of celebration. Needless to say, 2020 has been a nightmarish year for most folks in Minnesota and Dodge County, specifically. No...
