I have had the chance to y the friendly skies many times over the years, but none of those came close to matching up to my experience last week. As part of a media promotion, I had the unique opportunity to experience the excitement of the Roaring Twenties Thursday afternoon in Rochester. I...
For most of us, summer is a time when life slows down. So, make the most of your summer by doing those activities that you didn’t have time for during the school year – like reading. For students, summer gives us a chance to read for fun instead of having to read textbooks or the works of...
Memorial Day through Labor Day is usually the cause for great celebration, as it is summertime in Minnesota. But it is also a dreaded time, at least on Minnesota roadways. To police officers, this time period is known as the 100 deadliest days for drivers. Statistically speaking, this is when...
"What are your plans for the future?"   It’s a question that’s been asked and answered in hundreds of different ways. It’s a question that I despise but I find now follows me as I trek my way through high school. My answer is a continuous “I don’t know,” but as of recently I’ve taken to...
Another superhero swung into theaters this weekend, and he is a welcome addition. Spiderman: Homecoming is exactly the superhero movie the summer needed. Following the adventures of Spiderman, alias Peter Parker, the movie picks up after the events of Captain America: Civil War with the teenage...
A few weeks ago I had one of the most surreal experiences in the middle of nowhere. Well, actually it was in Dodge County. At a strawberry farm, nonetheless. Some family members and I tooka break from reality and headed into the strawberry patch at the Miracle Strawberry Farm outside of Dodge...

With the sixth month of the year ending this past week, we’re o cially halfway done with 2017. You’re probably thinking, ‘Where has the time gone?’  If you’re like me, it may seem like you haven’t done anything noteworthy this year. However, it’s important to remember and celebrate all...
This past weekend was one of the most special times of the year. Father’s Day always proves to be extra special for me as I’m sure it does for countless other dads out there. Though my kids gave me a wonderful family portrait canvas of my daughter graduating from college, the best gift was being...
I am ready to ditch my new best friend.   Maybe it’s ‘buyer’s remorse,’ but this new smart phone is confusing and infuriating. Boxes are constantly popping up, and the tiny keyboard is apparently meant for use by ants, or amoeba.   I push buttons and nothing happens. Push buttons and get three...
