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...

Talking it Over: Things you should never say out loud

Talking it Over: Religion and school
The first day of school is not too far away. I have seen a lot of postings and articles on social media about keeping religion in our schools. There seems to be a movement to try to keep God out of our school systems. Many people, including myself, feel that it is important to keep...

Sue's Views: Making an effort makes it worth it to shop local
The last few weeks have been wildly busy in Morris and it is the stuff that makes small town living worthwhile. Helping Eul's Hardware Hank celebrate 85 years in business with a picnic lunch and cake is just about the best way to spend part of a Saturday afternoon that I know of. A...

Talking it Over: Pictures can speak volumes
A life can be defined through pictures. Quite often for special events we use pictures to chronicle a life. We start with pictures of a person or couple when they are very young and move through the years with pictures that show some of the highlights of their life. Those pictures...

Literature in a Hurry: Weekends at home and weekends away
This weekend, I'm getting out of town. By 5:30 on Friday afternoon, I'll be on the road with friends, heading to my parent's cabin in Wisconsin for a long weekend. It's my first weekend at the lake this year and I couldn't be more excited. I told a friend in the audience at...

Michael Lackey: Using gay marriage as a wedge issue is a losing strategy
Senator Marco Rubio recently said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network that contemporary advances in gay rights will lead supporters to characterize mainstream Christianity as hate speech. There are so many problems with Rubio's claims and "logic" in this interview...

Katie Erdman: Nurses are something special
There was a week that was recently observed in a relatively quiet way. There were no big celebrations, open houses, or even articles written. Instead, National Nurses Week came and went without a lot of hoopla. The observance is almost like the nurses themselves, unassuming and quiet...

Talking it Over: Always at the end of the line
When I went to school, I was almost always at the end of the line. That is because the first letter of my last name was V for Van Eps, which fell at the end of the alphabet. Nearly everything we did was by alphabet which meant those of us with the last letters were usually last. I...

Literature in a Hurry: Bringing more voices to Morris
Filling space on the Morris Sun Tribune opinion page has always been a challenge for me. I'm a reporter at heart, so I tend to spend more time thinking about and writing content for the news pages than I do on what should take over page six. But I know that readers value a robust,...

Talking it Over: Powering up the country
It has been nearly 100 years since the rural area of west central Minnesota became electrified. In the early 1900s, poles and lines were put up along country roads to eventually bring electrical power to the rural areas. Power that nearby communities had enjoyed for several years. You...
