Mark Lennox, the director for NextEra Energy’s Dodge County Wind program was at last week’s Dodge County Commissioners meeting to give an update on the project. The project will install wind turbines, primarily in Dodge County, but also in Steele County, that will be able to provide up to 260...
Of all of our facial features, the nose is the most often complained about. It is too big, too small, too pointy, to flat, too curved, or too crooked.  Nose jobs are the most common of all cosmetic surgeries. It is also distinctive from the other body parts we use to sense the world around us. We...
It turned out to be a great weekend in Mantorville. I was a little bit concerned on Friday afternoon when the skies opened up and it started to rain. My immediate concern was that the Cambodian dance group that was scheduled to perform outside at the County Seat Coffeehouse in Mantorville would...
There are some dates that are etched into our collective memory. Those are dates you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when some event happened.

Students in Byron returned to classes last week and students in Kasson-Mantorville, Hayfield, and Triton are heading back this week for what everyone hopes will be a normal school year following two-plus years of COVID disruptions. Disrupted academic schedules, reduced...

While meat and potatoes are thought of as American as apple pie, its history may tell a different story.   If fact, potatoes did originate in America, but not North...
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6,7   Every year during the summertime...
