Column: A Dear John letter for a John Deere
It's been a long winter, so I was out in the machine shed, checking batteries, shoveling some snow, being bored with winter, but still, a little...

Column: Tips to avoid a head-on collision
Question: I am wondering what the best procedure is when you see an oncoming car headed right for you. If you steer to the left and have a passenger, you are probably putting them at great risk. If you steer right, you're probably the goner. Is it best to just slam on the brakes then...

Column: FMSC inspires mountain bikers
My introduction to Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) occurred a few years back on the job. I was writing a story on the organization, which had set up a satellite meal-packaging center in the Fergus Falls mall. I was new to the area and impressed with the global outlook of those...

Column: Drinking the orange Kool-Aid
Forgive me, Minnesota, for I have sinned. I spent my Sunday afternoon rooting for the Denver Broncos. Before you turn the page, hear me out. My allegiance to the Broncos has nothing do with Tim Tebow's recent rise in popularity or his dashing good looks - it has everything to do...

Column: Ready, set, referendum
I feel somewhat like a shrill old woman as I write this, but perhaps that's what I'm slowly becoming. Slowly. My Monday deadline morning and afternoon were consumed with conversations with people interested in submitting a letter to the editor regarding the upcoming school levy...

Column: The unknown - and Tuffy's
I was never the type of child who attempted to sneak a peak at hidden Christmas or birthday presents. It wasn't because I as an angel, but simply due to the fact that the excitement of the surprise meant more to me than the thrill of knowing what the gift was. In many ways, I'm...

Column: The perfect path to Perham
You know a thing is meant to be when everything about it falls into place; when the stars align in your favor, laying a path before your feet. That's how it was for me with moving to Perham. From the time I first saw the employment listing to the day I moved into my new home here,...

COLUMNIST: Geothermal heat pump opps open
