This holiday season, as temperatures drop and we gather with loved ones, it’s important to keep safety front of mind. Yes, that means driving more carefully on icy roads, but it also means keeping your family safe from a less obvious winter hazard — carbon monoxide. According to the Minnesota...
A sequence of events over the past several months is raising some important questions about how one area school district is communicating with the public when it comes to critical information about the operations of the district. The district in question is Triton Public Schools serving the...
Things were hopping in Dodge County last Saturday as community Christmas celebrations were held in Kasson, Mantorville, Hayfield, Dodge Center, and West Concord. Although each celebration was different, there were a few similarities. Santa Claus was everywhere. In every community he was there to...
I’m one of those people who does not like to rush the Christmas holiday season. October means Halloween, November means Thanksgiving. When those two events are over, it’s time for Advent and Christmas to begin. In fact, I kind of feel sorry for Thanksgiving. It seems to get lost in the commercial...

Even though the holiday displays have been in the stores for several weeks now, likewise Black Friday sales, the holiday season is now officially under way. Among all the holiday activities that will take place in the next month, shopping will be at the top. There are gifts to buy for family and...

On a five-day trip to Branson, Missouri recently, we were able to revisit fall. While in Minnesota, we’ve already had snow and freezing temperatures, southern Missouri was still in the midst of fall. Before we left, most of our trees had dropped their leaves and I’d taken four truckloads of leaves...
It was on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11 a. m. that the WWI armistice was signed. On Saturday, we celebrated and honored our Veterans. Every year, we have a responsibility to gather and to honor the brave men and women who serve and defend this nation’s freedom and security; we can honor them...
When we travel, getting ready to go usually is more work than the trip itself. Even if we are only going for a short time, like a weekend, getting ready takes considerable effort. Of course, the biggest problem is we take too much stuff. On our first trip to Europe, we had no idea of what to take,...
