'Al luck' strikes again

I just might be the luckiest person in the world.
Only hours after finishing last week’s column about the reliable ol’ Jeep, I headed out to the parking lot after the end of a long work day to find my Jeep didn’t start.
I tilted my head back in frustration and let out a big sigh before panic set in. I was supposed to meet my cousin Tina in Hanover for dinner at 6 p.m. and was already running late.

Here's to the reliable ol' Jeep

As much as I write about the troubles of the Jeep, I don’t give it enough credit when it does get me to where I’m going.

Barking dog ordinance main topic of City Council meeting

In a short meeting last Tuesday evening, the Brownton City Council heard an update from Police Chief Ken Bauer about the city’s pet ordinance regarding barking dogs.
Bauer said he talked with the city attorney about the recurring nuisance of a barking dog and found that in Minnesota, “barking dog offenses” can be charged as misdemeanors and offenders can be fined up to $900, “which is something for a couple of our frequent flyers,” he told the City Council.

From fussy to food fanatic

It would be an understatement to say I ate well this 4th of July weekend. Most of you know I love food, and will find any way to talk about it, but I’ll admit, I didn’t always.
I was quite the fussy eater when I was younger. I despised onions, cauliflower, peppers, brussel sprouts, beets, cranberries, cabbage, celery, olives, liver, brats, and anything that typically made kids stick out their tongues and say, “Yuck.” 
But I was mostly known for my hatred of cheese.

Ronald V. Jungclaus, 62, of Glencoe

Mr. Jungclaus died peacefully at home on July 5, 2014, with loved ones by his side following a two-year cancer illness.
