Our nation watched in horror, via television, as a Minneapolis man was allegedly killed by a Minneapolis police officer. Riots broke out. Stores and homes were looted and burned. Police were forced to abandon the Minneapolis Police Department’s third precinct because of George Floyd’s death had...
Of all the fruits I love to eat, strawberries would have to be my top choice. I always love this time of the year because you find fresh berries. You can either go out and pick your own or grab some at stands and farmer’s markets around the area. Last weekend, I got the chance to take my mom...
Smart phone companies have partnered with coronavirus contact tracing, whether a users has an iPhone or an Android. By merely flipping a switch, on a smart phone there will be contact tracing, which is called “Exposure Notification.” However, the “COVID-19 Exposure Logging” toggle is disabled by...
Last weekend a young boy and his mother visited Kasson. Usually, that doesn’t make headlines. However, this young boy’s name is (wait for it) Kasson. He came to Kasson, Minnesota to view our fair town for which he shares the name. It’s not often that an individual has a name in common with a town....
By now, everyone probably is aware of my love for the fairs. As many fair lovers are finding out this year, the COVID-19 pandemic is crimping our lifestyle for the summer. On Saturday, I set out in the search of fair food to at least wet my appetite with some treats. I brought my oldest daughter...

Excitement was building for area pools to open for the shortened season. Moms, Dads and kids full of pent up energy were looking forward to the opening of pools around Dodge County. Kasson’s pool opening was set for last Friday. Wouldn’t ya know it, kids were awakened by rain pelting the roof of...
We’ve all been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic in some way or another over the past three months. As crazy as things have been during the crisis and under all the problems and issues that have resulted from the outbreak, there are countless stories of people that have made a difference and...
It’s only mid-June and I’m to the point where I feel I’ve already been through a full year of ups and downs. I was talking with our editor, Karen Jorgensen last week and we were recounting the significant things that have happened since January 1, 2020. The year began with the Iowa caucuses. The...
For the past several weeks, well okay maybe months already, I have felt like a shaggy dog. There have been days where I have felt like hiding and not showing my face any where. It seems my hair is growing out of control and there is no one around to take care of my problem. For those who know me, I...
