Opinions

I’m old, but it wasn’t age that caused my problem, it was the headlights I have seven different woman friends that I go out to lunch or dinner with on a consistent basis. They range in age from 41 to 85. Three of them go out with me on a regular schedule and they help me with my writing. One of...
It seems the state of Minnesota has some extra money. A lot of extra money. The November Budget and Economic Forecast issued last week by Minnesota Management and Budget shows that the General Fund is projected to have a surplus of $17.6 billion for the 2024-2025 biennium. So now the suggestions...
During our lifetime we tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. When my wife and I were first married we started out with almost nothing for our first apartment. We got a bedroom set as a wedding gift from one set of parents and a dining room set from the other. We bought a couch, but the rest of the...
Our religious culture has forgotten God’s holiness and justice. We have embraced God’s grace and love to the exclusion of His other attributes. Jesus was as much a man of judgment as He was a man of grace. If fact, you can’t have grace without judgment, for without judgment, you can only have...
To the Editor: I read with great interest the minutes of the last Dodge County Board of Commissioners meeting (dated November 22, 2022 — 5:00 PM) and their discussion of giving themselves a raise. Commissioners do not get cost of living increases (there’s a reason for that). Commissioner Peterson...
As the we move into the Christmas season it is apparent that the Holiday Spirit is alive and well in Dodge County. Cities and towns throughout Dodge County had their annual community Christmas elebrations last weekend. Most were sponsored by the local Chambers of Commerce and local businesses and...
There was a time in most of our lives that deciding what to do was easy. We had jobs, families, and responsibilities so our schedules were pre-arranged. We had a job to go to, deadlines to meet, and kids to either pick up or drop off. It was often hectic, but we seldom wondered what we should do ...
We have a story on the front page of this week’s DCI about the successful opening of the Chaotic Good Brewing Co. taproom in the former Kasson car wash building. The taproom, which includes pizza ovens, opened for business at the location on November 15. Scott Stroh is the owner of the business and...
It is December, and this is Minnesota, so why are we often surprised that it is getting colder? Yet every year when the temperatures begin to drop, we complain about how cold it is. Our initial fear is the first frost that will kill our outdoor flowers. In the late fall, we battle back by covering...
Here we are in the month on December. This is indeed, the most wonderful time of the year! The boys and girls are all excited. The mothers and dads are busily getting everything ready. The tree will soon be trimmed, and the stockings will be hanging over the mantle. One of the most enjoyable parts...
