To the Editor:   My name is Dylan Soberg and I am running for Kasson-Mantorville School Board. My family and I have resided in Mantorville since 2016. We moved to the Kasson-Mantorville area because it reminded us of the rural communities that my wife and I grew up in, where the community and the...
To the Editor:   We are writing this to express our continued support of the K-M School Board and for their support of giving parents a say in their own child’s education and safety. Two school board members who are running again this year supported our K-M parents during the recent pandemic by...
To the Editor: The Electoral College is one big mistake in the Constitution. It makes the USA a Republic in presidential voting and susceptible to corruption – the president is selected by “electors” from each state and allows for elections of presidents who didn’t win the popular vote, which has...
Election Day is fast approaching. Voting is a right, but it is also a responsibility. Good government requires citizens who know the issues and have thoughtfully made decisions on who to vote for. To help voters make those decisions the Dodge County Independent is publishing a Voters’ Guide in this...
That is the nickname that was given to eight retired Byron teachers that meet once a week at Otto’s bakery in Byron. Since the last of the eight retired in 2009, they have gotten together for an hour to keep alive rather unlikely friendships. The friendships are unlikely since none of the eight...
Halloween is fast approaching. Bags of candy will be purchased, costumes will be carefully chosen, and the trick or treating routes will be planned. I have always loved Halloween. I am not into the scary, horror movie, blood and gore parts that can be associated with Halloween. I like Happy...
To the Editor: My letter is in response to Karl Huppler's October 13 letter who had the usual attacks against the Republican party.  He believes this party is trying to "eliminate freedom  of a woman to control her own body and her own life." Abortion, unfortunately is legal in Minnesota despite...
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the United States. It is a month when pink seems to be everywhere. Pink ribbons, pink hats, pink posters. You name it, it may be pink this month. That’s because pink has come to signify being aware of breast cancer and offer support to those who are...
Before everyone carried a phone/camera/recorder/minicomputer with them at all times, people used to write things down. If you wanted to do it in a hurry, you learned shorthand. But even if you never learned that now outdated skill, it has become necessary for all of us to learn another sort of...
To the Editor: These days, we seem to be more inclined to vote against someone than forsomeone. This year, perhaps you will- vote against the party that claims to be the champions of individualfreedom, but is doing everything in their power to eliminate the freedom of awoman to control her own body...
