Their view: Seniors deserve affordable prescription drug prices

Column: A star in the family
OK, I admit it. Watching the Super Bowl on Sunday was weird for me. Because, first of all, I was watching football. Me. The girl who never watches football. Never ever. At all. Not even the biggest game of the year. Nothing against it, I just never got into it. I'm the soft-hearted...

Column: A plea to parents: Set a healthy example
Hello everyone! I hope you all are staying active and warm throughout this cold weather we've been having. This past month, I had the privilege of going into the elementary school with Marilyn Hofland to talk to students about the importance of exercise in preventing type II diabetes. This...

Column: The pitter-patter of little paws
Don't let that cute face fool ya. He's not as innocent as he looks. Meet Wally. He's a four-month-old Basador (half Basset Hound, half Labrador), and for the last week, he's been the unholy terror of my life. He's like a toddler, but with bigger teeth and no diapers. He chews...

Editorials: Loving and hating the state spending plan
And here we go. The Minnesota Legislature's top priority this session - setting a two-year budget that, hopefully, also puts the state on more-solid, longer-term financial footing - kicked off last Tuesday with the release of Gov. Mark Dayton's proposed spending plan. The state's...

Editorial: Keep pets warm in winter
With subzero temperatures the norm lately, we've been hearing an awful lot about how to keep ourselves and our kids safe and healthy in cold weather. But what about our furry friends? We heard a report recently of cats running loose in town, and dogs being left outside all day in...

Editorial: Make sure your vehicle is ready for cold temps
With temperatures continuing to plunge below zero, it's a good idea to make sure your vehicle is ready to handle the weather. Having a vehicle break down in cold weather is not something we look forward to. It's not too late to have your vehicle checked, saving you from the cost...

Column: Diving for Fish
I'm honestly not sure which hit the icy water first - the fish or my husband. The line snapped just as the Northern was coming up out of the ice hole. Within a second, my husband dove after the fish, his body crashing on the floor of the fish house while his right arm submerged completely...

Editorial: Bet on science to (eventually) show us the way to the truth
Sometimes, it shows up in amusing ways, as when people dismissed last month's Mayan prediction of the end of the world. And sometimes, it shows up in more meaningful ways, as noted below. But through it all, a pattern emerges. It's one that has held up for centuries, and in all probability,...

Guest Editorial: Healthy choices need to be taught at an early age
A new year offers an opportunity for a fresh start for kids and adults alike. Research shows that obesity is linked to cancer, and what's true for adults is true for young people, as well. According to the National Cancer Institute, between 1980 and 2004, the prevalence of obesity...
