Opinions

It feels like fall out there. Except for three or four hot days (maybe a couple more?), it’s been a cool, wet summer. Great sleeping weather. Odd but nice to wake up wrapped in a sleeping bag in August in Minnesota. Normally it’s too hot even to think about sleeping bags, sweaters and jackets ‘...
I don’t like public speaking. Not many people do. Once you find someone who does, it’s like a diamond in the rough. They are so rare, so special. Generally, people who enjoy speaking, and speaking to a crowd are the people you see up on stage. People who seem to shine just a little bit...
It’s hard to believe, but my summer internship with the DCI has come to an end. My time here has been a BIG learning experience. From asking the right questions, interviewing the right people, and most importantly not backing into a sentence, I’ve learned a lot about how to be a better writer...
The Steele County Fair wouldn't be the fair without a little polka music, and yes, one man in particular along with his concertina.  Throughout the six-day fair that wrapped up Sunday night, Luverne Wanous of Owatonna logged in yet another fair. For the 81-year-old musician, he has been...
"I'm sorta glad that them people got hit and I'm glad that girl died. They were a bunch of Communists out there protesting against somebody's freedom of speech, so it doesn't bother me that they got hurt at all."  - Justin Moore, Grand Dragon of the Loyal White Knights of Ku Klux Klan, to WBTV in...
As the summer days dwindle to a close, so does the peaceful bliss that cover the town.  I know it will get colder soon, and I know I’ll need to start waking up earlier soon. Summer comes and goes far too quickly for me to fully enjoy it, and I know when September comes I’ll wait for June to...
It seems like you just graduated high school, but in a week or two you're going to start college. Even if you aren’t a freshman, it’s never too late to start new habits, meet new people, or start new extracurricular activities. As someone who has attended both public and private universities,...
As I look back on my childhood days, there was one ritual in our household that created some anxious moments in the middle of the week. It was the arrival of the local newspapers.  There was always a mad dash scramble to see who could grab the local newspapers first. We usually received at...
No doubt you noticed that the front page of this week’s DCI is ... blank! Goes to show what you’d miss if every page of every newspaper was blank, if us journalists did not plug in the news, week after month after year, so help us God. You would not know:                      -How much fun...
I was born into this world with the sole purpose to be a playmate. Any second child knows the struggles of having an older sibling. Any middle child knows the struggles of having a younger sibling. That’s why they had me, so I could entertain and one day play with my older sister. They didn’t...
