The Mantorville Theatre Company needs your help. 2023 saw a decline in revenues from pre-pandemic times (Theatre Arts groups have their own version of long COVID — not fun for people who have it or for organizations still in recovery.) To help start 2024 on a positive note, the Rochester female...
The recent article in the Dodge County Independent titled “Changing of State Flag is Short-sighted” written by Sheriff Scott Rose was spot-on. The only thing I might add is the expected costs to implement these changes and who will ultimately be stuck paying for it. Per state statue, the state...
Congratulations are in order this week to two individuals honored at last Friday night’s Kasson Chamber of Commerce dinner and annual meeting. Tanya Young was named Business Person of the Year and Kirk Swenson received the Chamber’s Legacy Award. Young is well-known in Kasson and Dodge County for...
Trump voters: Nearly four years in and here’s an updated list of Trump’s 40 biggest broken promises. 1. He said coronavirus would “go away without a vaccine.” You bought it. But it didn’t. While other countries got the pandemic under control and avoided large numbers of fatalities, the virus has...
