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...

Literature in a Hurry: New policy on student clubs needed more time for scrutiny
Talking about process can be boring, but I'm afraid it's important this week as we as a community consider the Morris Area School Board's decision to recognize the Gay Straight Alliance as an official student organization. I won't go through the details of Monday's school board...

Literature in a Hurry: Seeing drug court in action
One of the hardest things about reporting is deciding what you have to leave out of a story. The feature story for this week's paper is about the Eighth Judicial District's drug court, which has been operating for just over a year. By nearly every measure, drug court is a program...

Literature in a Hurry: Being 'busy' and living well
How many times have you had this conversation standing in front of the bagged carrots at Willie's? Person 1: Hey! How are you? Person 2: Good. Busy! How are you? Person 1: Pretty good, also busy. Some weather out there? Person 2: Oh my gosh, it's cold. I can't wait for...

Literature in a Hurry: My winter survival kit
Even though I was born and raised in Minnesota, I don't like the winter. I'm really a big wimp when it comes to cold weather. Any day where the high doesn't get above freezing is a day that I'd rather spend in bed with the covers pulled over my head. Last year, my plan to survive...

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...

Literature in a Hurry: Celebrating marriages for all local residents
MORRIS -- As a relatively young person, spring and summer are filled with friends talking about weddings and babies. Although I personally don't have any weddings to attend this year, I've already seen photos show up on Facebook from acquaintances and far-away friends celebrating...

MORRIS -- You may not know this about me, but I read. A lot. And while I don’t really plan what I’m reading to match up with current events, sometimes serendipity plays a role to put the perfect book in my hands at just the right time. That is the experience I had this week, when...
