Talking it over
I had a great time at the Stevens County Fair this year. I hope everyone who attended did too. The weather was nice, the food was great, and there were so many people I knew, it was hard to do anything but just visit. After a summer of heat and rain, we got by with just one shower...

Kim Ukura: Old is just a matter of perspective
By the time you are reading this column, I will have turned 30. This is a milestone that I've been dreading for the better part of a year that also means absolutely nothing. A year or two ago I started to discover more and more gray hairs, all coming in at the same place up near my...

Elizabeth Golombiecki: Don't forget about National Ice Cream Month
I can hardly believe that June is over already. I hope everyone enjoyed June Dairy Month and took the pledge to get your recommended three servings of dairy every day at www.midwestdairy.com. It's been a hot start to summer, so what better way to cool off than with ice cream? July...

Katie Erdman: Fun on a dairy farm
Living on a dairy farm is a lot of work but there can also be a lot of fun. I grew up on a dairy farm and know that life was not all work but also a lot of play. I enjoyed going out to the barn whenever my dad and brother were milking. While they were busy doing that, I would play...

Kim Ukura: Special session and long-term reforms needed in Minnesota government
The past week, the 2016 Minnesota Legislative session came to a chaotic close. I'm sure most Minnesotans didn't watch and couldn't stomach the messy end to another legislative session.

Katie Erdman: A true to date Memorial Day
This year Memorial Day falls on May 30 which is the original date for the observance before it was moved to the last Monday in May. The earlier holidays were also referred to as Decoration Day since it was a day to decorate the graves of soldiers. Over the years the holiday has changed,...

Kim Ukura: Political letters policy is now in effect
Given the number of debates, the volume of campaign commercials, and the multitude of election-related think pieces being published in print and online, you'd think that this year's general election was coming soon. In reality, we've still got more than five months to go. Hooray?...

When people ask me where I am from, I say Mankato, Minnesota. Everyone may be thinking, oh, she is from a big town. What people don't know is that I actually went to grade school and high school in St. Clair, Minnesota, population 862. I was a little scared coming to the University...

Sandy Tubbs: All people should have the opportunity to be healthy
For many reasons, the month of April represents a time of great optimism and celebration. Winter is essentially behind us for another year; birds begin to sing and the white or brown landscape begins to evolve into a blanket of varying shades of green. It's a time to look ahead and...
