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: 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...

COLUMNIST: Geothermal heat pump opps open
