Opinions

It’s that time of the year that gives me a little extra spring in my step. I love every year when March rolls around and Daylight Saving Time goes into effect. Most of the United States began DST at 2 a.m. this past Sunday.  Even though there are still piles of snow dotting the countryside, I feel...
Kasson-Mantorville Middle School’s drama department students presented Patrick Derksen’s detective comedy, “A Lighter Shade of Noir,” Feb. 23-25 at the Minnesota WiFi Performing Arts Center at Kasson-Mantorville High School.  This is the school’s first comedy, and the students did an excellent job...
Mark Matuska was attending a training event in Nashville when he learned about America’s latest school shooting. A young man named Nikolas Cruz is charged with killing 17 students and injuring 14 more on Feb. 14 at his former high school in Parkland, Fla. It’s happening again and again. Mass...
As a journalist covering news stories of all sorts, I know first-hand how quickly things can change in life. Just when you think things are moving forward in a positive direction, life gets in the way and changes everything very quickly. Such has been the case at the Steele County Free Fair over...
My mother and I decided to go on a college visit this past weekend. Luckily it happened to fall on the same weekend we had decided to visit my sister in Winona. For some odd reason we thought it was entirely reasonable to take a four-hour car ride up to the University of Minnesota-Duluth, and then...
It's a;ways fun to visit with high school kids. You've gotta love the humor, the nuttiness, the innocence, the angst. Overheard a while back buring lunch in the commons of an area school: High school guy: “What do you think? Should we just be friends?” High school girl: “Yeah, I guess. That sounds...
Every so often I run inot people, mostly young children, who ask good questions that sometimes make me even think for a moment. Such was the case last week when I attended Ash Wednesday services and heard some children asking about the ashes. In between kids exchanging hearts and treats for...
Getting rid of family dinners can affect you more than you think.  Family meals are important in people's everyday routine. Sometimes families don't have the time to eat dinner together due to sports or work. Eating dinner as a family helps you save money, improves your health, and is mentally...
It's ever so much fun pulling your hair so much that only tufts are left, because you are at war with the computer. We ran such-and-such a story not too long ago and it should be available, with the photos I took, in our virtual library. But lo, it has vanished into the ethernet. Just gone. I am...
One of my most memorable assignments in covering the news came nearly three years ago when I ventured to North Mankato to meet a woman celebrating a big birthday. Oh, but this was no ordinary birthday. At the time, Otilla Anderson was already a centenarian and getting ready to celebrate her 105th...
