Every morning I seem to go through a battle with my alarm clock. And it’s not pretty. I never seem to come out on top. It begins innocently enough when the alarm clock begins with the radio going off indicating to me my earlier intentions of wanting to get up. Because I’ve had difficulty getting up...
We honored fallen police officers during National Police Week last month. It’s only fitting to recognize those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect others. However, there appears to be yet a different and potentially more dangerous crisis facing our law enforcement warriors: police...
Let the caps fly and the celebrations begin. That’s exactly what is happening around the area. Seniors have finished their school work and now have diplomas in hand for the next venture in their lives.  I can’t believe how it has been 32 years since I graduated from high school. I can assure you...
The two O names stole the show in 2017. Oliver and Olivia were the most popular baby names in Minnesota, according to the Social Security Administration.  I’m still agonizing over the fact that Rick didn’t come out on top.

One of the hidden treasures in my hometown of Brownton that has always had a lasting impression on me turned out to be an icon in community journalism across Minnesota for decades. I was fortunate enough to get my start in the newspaper industry back in the early 1980s under Chuck Warner, the long-...
  I recently had the opportunity to attend the 2018 Hendrickson Forum in Minneapolis.  The keynote speaker at the forum was Jackie Freiberg, an international best-selling author, who shared some unconventional, business-best practices of global leaders.  Even though her advice was geared towards...
It was nearly 30 years ago when Annie Anderson felt like she died. She really didn’t, but what she experienced that night has set off years of torture and torment mentally, physically and psychologically. At times, Anderson, the advertising director for the Dodge County Independent, wonders if she...
