Telling the stories from where the wind blows
I was playing in the grass on a farm in northwest Iowa when the wind blew one of my toy structures over and upside down. I marched into the house to complain about the wind to my mom. My mom didn't exactly empathize but she did offer some wisdom. The wind always blows, especially...

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...

Katie Erdman: Celebrations are fun, but also a lot of work
Summer is a time for a lot of town celebrations. These can be fun and relaxing or lots of hard work, depending on your involvement. For those who are relaxing and enjoying the festivities, be sure to thank and appreciate the other group. I have been on both sides of these scenarios....

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...

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: 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?...

Karisa Lehmann: Finding the unexpected in Morris
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...

Blaine Hill: Doing nothing is not an option
As the legislative session winds down, everyone is waiting to see if legislators do something. I traveled to St. Paul to participate in a press conference and lobbying effort and it was obvious the outcome of the session is not clear. My message to our legislators and the rest of...

Kim Ukura: Finding new skills through mentoring
Because January is National Mentoring Month, I thought I’d write a bit about one of my most meaningful mentoring opportunities through a YMCA program called Youth in Government. Youth in Government is a leadership program in Minnesota that focuses on youth development. The heart...

Katie Erdman: Challenges our children face each day
I thought when my children graduated, I would no longer be affected by what I term loosely as "school politics." These are things that affect our children during everyday school activities. However, I didn't realize what would happen when my grandchildren started school. Now I am...

Michael Haynes: Stevens County needs more people to fill existing open jobs
Stevens County is a wonderful place to do business, kind of. Kind of because some businesses are attempting to grow but may not be able to because they are unable to find new employees. Kind of because at the same time some businesses are struggling to remain open for the same reason,...
