Kim Ukura: Musings on main street
One of the best parts of my week was the chance to attend Soup and Substance, a monthly event hosted by the Office of Community Engagement at the University of Minnesota, Morris where community members gather for lunch and a discussion. The topic for this month — a conversation...

Blaine Hill: Local Government Aid is the lifeblood of Morris city funding
Every citizen in Morris should be concerned about LGA. It will be our number one priority in the upcoming legislative session and possibly the fall election. Without an increase, the city of Morris will be faced with some important decisions about taxes and/or service cuts in the...

Katie Erdman: Living without the internet
What would we do without the internet? Many of us had to find out recently when we woke up to no internet service. Not just here in Morris, but in a large area surrounding us. Even though the service was down for just a few hours, some of us had to take a hard look at what we would...

Blaine Hill: Morris water treatment plant needs legislative support
The Morris water treatment plant needs legislative support. This means citizens need to get involved with the process. We need you to contact Rep. Jeff Backer, Sen. Torrey Westrom and Gov. Mark Dayton to ask them to support the needed funding for our project.

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...

Talking it Over: Growing up too fast
Recently, my five year old granddaughter, Josie, said to me, "I wish I was a grown up." I told her, "No you don't. Kids can have way more fun." She looked at me like I was telling her a terrible lie. After she said that, I started thinking about the big differences between being...

Literature in a Hurry: Lessons from a ten-dollar Founding Father
For the last several weeks, I've been obsessed with the soundtrack to Hamilton, a new Broadway musical all about the life of Alexander Hamilton, our "ten-dollar founding father without a father" who "got a lot farther by working a lot harder / by being a lot smarter / by being a...

Talking it Over: Recalling long lost friends
There are times when a person will come to mind who you haven't seen or heard from for years. It could be someone you were once close to or just a passing acquaintance. So many people come and go in a person's life, and at times you can lose touch with one who was once very important...

Michael Lackey: Ignoring differences is not the right approach to combat bullying
The school board recently approved the Gay Straight Alliance as a student organization. School board member Stan Wulf voted against the measure, but what is important is his explanation why: "There's always been differences and there will always be differences — that's why...

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...

Talking it Over: The price we pay for good health
We pay a high price to stay healthy. The cost of medical care and prescription drugs is steadily increasing and almost getting to the point where many people simply can't afford to go to the doctor or take prescribed medication. Even with insurance or medicare, many Americans face...

Jacob Just: Student representation on school boards

Michael Lackey: What is the difference between Fox News commentators and university professors?
As a Fox News junkie, I am frequently amused by the network's representation of university professors, who supposedly devote their lives to converting unwitting students into liberal socialist communists. So that there is no confusion about professors, let me clarify the record. Fox...
