Opinions

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...
My baby cousin, Harper, was born exactly a week befroe my birthday. Between Oct. 10 and Oct. 17 I feel as if I'm allowed to celebrate for a week straight. Harper is a lot like how you would imagine most 4-year-olds, but somehow she's just a little bit more. I don't typically hang out with children...
Today, Feb. 8, is national Laugh and Get Rich Day, according to the good folks at timeanddate.com, a website featuring good-humored holidays for every day of the week. (Jan. 7 was “Old Rock Day,” Jan. 17 was “Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day,” Jan. 20 was “Penguin Awareness Day,” and Jan. 21 was “...
Minnesota’s high court will soon face a major decision regarding cameras in the courtrooms across the state.   For more than two years, a pilot project has allowed news organizations to capture video and photographs inside some sentencing proceedings - mostly murder trials and other high profile...
I suprisingly get lost quite often. I don't particularly like to let on that I am lost, as it typically wounds my pride. I don't do well with vague directions. Or any directions. While I don’t like to pass blame, I’m just going to blame it on my grandmother. Children don’t just get lost, someone...
