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...

Tim Lindberg: Morris Public Library is a true community space

Talking it Over: Who owns the fair?
Grandma, who owns the fair? It was an innocent question asked by my granddaughter while we were walking around at the Stevens County Fair last weekend, but one of those questions that actually had me stumped. After thinking for awhile, I said, “We all own the fair.” The question...

Literature in a Hurry: Citizens deserve better from their elected officials
Stevens County Auditor/Treasurer Neil Wiese has, in the past, characterized himself as a champion of the taxpayers of Stevens County. But his actions since submitting a letter of resignation to the Stevens County Board of Commissioners last week tell a different story. There are...

Ashraf Ashkar: Demand justice for all in Israel and Palestine
Most of us have been watching the news about what is going in Gaza and Israel for the past few weeks, or at least know that there is a war going on, again! When I moved to Morris with my family three years ago, I was surprised how many people are interested to know about my home,...

Talking it Over: Names my grandchildren call me
I have been called by several different names or nicknames over the years. Some are fun and memorable, others I would just as soon forget. But my favorite names in recent years are the ones my grandchildren call me. It seems that they each have their own unique way of addressing...

Literature in a Hurry: Opportunities for rural are available in Morris
I was on vacation last week, visiting friends and sightseeing in New York City. It was a lot of fun, and a strong reminder of while the city can be fun to visit, I really don’t want to live there. On every trip, large or small, I always have a moment when I just know that it’s...

Talking It Over: What will they say about me?
Some day, someone will be writing an obituary about me. I could write my own, I suppose, but I would rather leave it up to someone else. However, I can’t help but wonder how my life will be summed up in a few words. I am sure there will be the basic information, birth, schooling,...

Talking it Over: Paying to hear music
I like music just like most people, but I just can’t understand paying a lot of money to listen to it. I hear about people going to concerts, shows and performances that cost lots of money and I wonder why they don’t just listen to it on the radio or buy the CD. Through the...
