As the summer days dwindle to a close, so does the peaceful bliss that cover the town.  I know it will get colder soon, and I know I’ll need to start waking up earlier soon. Summer comes and goes far too quickly for me to fully enjoy it, and I know when September comes I’ll wait for June to...
It seems like you just graduated high school, but in a week or two you're going to start college. Even if you aren’t a freshman, it’s never too late to start new habits, meet new people, or start new extracurricular activities. As someone who has attended both public and private universities,...
As I look back on my childhood days, there was one ritual in our household that created some anxious moments in the middle of the week. It was the arrival of the local newspapers.  There was always a mad dash scramble to see who could grab the local newspapers first. We usually received at...
No doubt you noticed that the front page of this week’s DCI is ... blank! Goes to show what you’d miss if every page of every newspaper was blank, if us journalists did not plug in the news, week after month after year, so help us God. You would not know:                      -How much fun...
I was born into this world with the sole purpose to be a playmate. Any second child knows the struggles of having an older sibling. Any middle child knows the struggles of having a younger sibling. That’s why they had me, so I could entertain and one day play with my older sister. They didn’t...
I can’t remember the last time my father and I didn’t go to Vikings training camp in Mankato. I think our first trip to training camp was back in 2004, the summer before I began fourth grade. I still have a photo from that day featuring Chris Hovan, Kevin Williams, and other members of the...
Having attended so many events as a resident, a journalist, and a resident journalist in our little area of the world, southeast Minnesota, I have come to one inescapable conclusion: We are incredibly lucky to live here. In summer you can find festivals galore, unique shops, things to do, and...
It probably comes as no suprise to must. Health care is top-notch in Minnesota, especially in our corner of southeastern Minnesota. Of course, it doesn’t hurt having the mecca of health facilities right down the road just minutes away in Rochester. Mayo Clinic has once again been rated as...
I hate August! As a child, August signaled the end of summer and the beginning of the long days associated with school and homework. It also meant the never-ending stream of back-to-school commercials, which only multiplied my dread of starting school. The beginning of August was devoted to...
I had never wanted anything more than I wanted my driver’s license. I thought it was something that I couldn’t survive without, that it was essential to being a teenager. Being the dramatic person I am, I made getting my drivers license into a big deal. But anyone who is even slightly educated...
