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...

Sue's Views: All you have to do is ask

Talking it Over: On being a caregiver
When I was young, I dreamt of becoming a doctor. I would tell my siblings and friends that I wanted to be a doctor when I grew up. As I got older, that dream changed a bit as I realized that I probably didn’t have what it takes to be a doctor or any other part of the medical profession. The...

Rep. Jay McNamar: Heating assistance available for Minnesota families

Down on the Farm: At the Zoo
The Reid Park Zoo in downtown Tucson celebrated the birth of a baby tapir a couple of weeks ago. The tapir is an endangered and bizarre creature from South America. It looks like a pig with an elephant’s trunk, but it is related more to rhinos and horses than pigs. It uses its mini...

Talking It Over: Reasons to keep your resolutions
New Year’s resolutions are being made and broken quite regularly at this time of year. Those who make a resolution have good intentions at the time, but sometimes lack the resolve to stick to them. Maybe, when we make a resolution, we need to look deep and find out why we really...
