Opinions

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...

He has been gone for 11 years already, and I ache because the memories are sepia-toned. There’s the photo of my dad holding an infant me on one hand, a big grin on his face. I will always remember how he broke into a little run as we returned home from ice-skating just a couple of years later...
Just as rooms in your house often demand a little extra tender loving and care with improvements and changes, the newspaper you pick up each week is really no different. And for those of us whose job it is to put together the newspaper each and every week, that challenge becomes near and dear...
Open to all who are concerned about domestic violence, the Promoting Peace conference returns for the third year in Waseca and Owatonna on September 27 and 28. Speakers are planned for the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. events. The conference idea can be credited to District Judge Karen Duncan, who states, “We...
