Talking it Over: Holiday leftovers
The holidays are over and for most of us the leftovers are also gone. However, for some, there may be some leftovers that hang on. I'm not talking about those extra pounds, food, or even lack of sleep. The holidays may leave us with some extra baggage that we didn't expect to take...

Talking it Over: Surviving our youth
If you were born in the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, or even 70s I have a question for you. How did we ever live to this ripe old age? It is amazing that we survived with all the hazards there are around us. As children, we would ride in cars with no seatbelts or airbags. Riding in the...

Socialism has gotten a bad name in the United States, because most people don’t understand it, and while there are many forms of socialism and no clear definition that encompasses them all, most Americans would be better off were the United States to become more socialist. I say...

Talking it over: Not good for hunting
This is the time of year when I write my annual deer hunting columns. Leading up to this week, I have been doing a lot of thinking about the hunt and some of the adventures we have had over the years. I recalled some very nice days and some pretty nasty ones. It is beginning to look...

MORRIS – Snow season is soon to be upon the residents of Morris, which means it is time to address the issues of snow storms and snow alerts. It is probably good to talk about this now, because, either for good or for bad, the city of Morris never called a snow alert during...

Jaya Mukherjee: Morris' location has benefits and challenges for visitors
Telling a non-Minnesotan that I will be visiting Morris in Minnesota invariably got me a blank stare and a “Where?!” But, it is this anonymity of Morris’, the ignorance of most people about its existence that was the unique selling point of Morris when we were helping our daughter...

Talking it Over: Fun times at drive-ins
Summer, with its long days and short nights, makes me think about drive-ins, drive-in theatres and drive-in restaurants. I spent a lot of summer time in my youth at both of these. Drive-in theatres have pretty much disappeared from our landscapes. At one time, you could find these...
