The GOP message is the same, so who to pick in Aug. 12 primary?

One can sure tell there is an election this year. The politicians, or their surrogates, have been showing up with more frequency of late. Especially the Republican candidates for governor, who have been stumbling over themselves to pronounce they are the most electable, thus the worthiest opponent for incumbent DFL Gov. Mark Dayton.
The GOP gubernatorial hopefuls are canvassing the state seeking support in the crucial Aug. 12 primary election. Yes, voters, there is a primary election this year.

I’ll never be like them; well, here I am

Nearly 40 years ago, I was sitting at my editor’s desk at the Fort Frances (Ontario) Times and in walks my predecessor, Carl Schubring. He is in his 70s, walks with a cane and had been the editor of the Times for more years than anyone could remember.
He came in with a little advice on how I should do my job and who I should talk to in order to get a story. It was unsolicited, and for the most part, wasted my time.

Community survey? 40 minutes of torture

I have an aversion to filling out forms.
I think it all started in my junior year of high school, when we started filling out financial aid applications for college. My dad, with his “misery loves company” philosophy, made me sit at the kitchen table with him to fill out the forms, when all I really wanted was to be out cruising around town with my friends.
So when the U.S. Census Bureau started sending me requests to fill out its American Community Survey online, I tossed the mail on the kitchen counter with the intent to get to it “later,” as in never.

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.
