Tim Lindberg: Morris Public Library is a true community space
MORRIS – This summer the Morris Public Library found itself the unlucky victim of a confluence of events that led to the flooding of a large portion of the interior of the building. While damage to library holdings were limited, the resulting process of removing damaged walls and...

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: Welcoming new voices during the election season
Voting for the people who will represent us at the local, state and federal level is one of a citizen’s most important civic functions. I’m proud to live in a state that makes voting easy for everyone, and proud to work in an industry that tries to help citizens make informed...

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...

Talking It Over: In times of change
HANCOCK – For most of us it is difficult to accept change. Especially changes that affect your life or lifestyle. Sure there are those regular changes that are pretty easy to take such as a change of clothes, the change of weather, changing your mind, changing the sheets or even...

Michael Haynes: Working together will help build a bigger, better, bolder community
MORRIS – Teamwork, teamwork, and more teamwork. Individuals (and groups) working together as a team can make positive changes in Stevens County’s future, our future. An alarm bell is sounding right now. It began ringing some time in the distant past. Very softly at first,...

Down on the Farm: Goodbye - and Hello!
After filing about 760 consecutive weekly columns, it is necessary for me to take a hiatus – not because I am tired, or have run out of wind. No, I am off on a new venture which requires me to suspend the column for a time. In 2011, I was granted a two-year Bush Fellowship to...

Talking it Over: Precious furniture
There is a piece of furniture in my home that holds a dear place in my heart. It is not an expensive piece or even something of extreme beauty. Instead it is something that was built with care, determination and a lot of education. The piece is a gun cabinet that my son built...
