As I’m sure many of you are figuring out, it’s tough to find anything to do this summer in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have a love for art and specifically Terry Redlin, I have the perfect respite for you to enjoy. Take a short road trip over to Watertown, S.D. to visit the Redlin Art...
There’s continued hysteria coming from various groups in our nation to abandon those who protect all the people of this nation. One must ask…and replace them with what? Having two nephews in law enforcement, I am concerned for the safety of them and their fellow officers. Theirs is a dangerous...
How can someone accused of murder be smiling? That’s what many people were asking themselves after they saw last week’s newspaper offering the most recent booking photo of Lois Riess from the Steele County Detention Center. I know I was one of them a little taken back by her smug smile. Though she...
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...

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...
Our readers in Owatonna got a dose of the postal blues a couple weeks ago, most likely without even really noticing it except for a delay with their delivery. As we do every week on Wednesday (unless it’s a holiday), we delivered the newspapers to the Owatonna Post Office. The newspapers are tied,...
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...
