Did you feel the coolness when you left the house last Thursday? Our weather’s beginning to change from the dog days of summer to the crispness of Canadian fronts pushing into our neck of the woods. 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 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...
