On July 5, Minnesota Independent Wrestling put on a free show under the big tent in Delano as part of the town’s 4th of July celebration. If you had the opportunity to see the show, you were in for quite a treat.   The opening match featured a three-way bout between high-flying athletes. These men...
Here’s a friendly reminder that the price of postage will increase on July 14. Postal rates were last increased in January and have been on a steady rise over the last few years.  The increase in postage cost is largely due to the decreased volume of mail that post offices around the country are...
Hard to believe that another 4th of July is upon us. Two hundred and forty-eight years have passed since 1776, the first year of our country’s independence. I remember traveling with my parents and sister as a young boy to Philadelphia in 1985 and standing outside of Independence Hall. Looking...
Summer is a great time for a road trip. My family looks forward to loading the truck and hitching the camper each year to explore state and county parks, discovering the many interesting and sometimes hidden attractions around Minnesota and the surrounding area.  Last fall, we asked our daughter...
It’s hard to believe that another school year is in the books and summer is in full swing. Day one seems like an eternity ago. Those first-day jitters are history, replaced by a sense of jubilation for students and teachers alike.  This year saw my youngest complete her final day of elementary...

Fatherhood doesn’t come with a blueprint or an instruction manual. We learn through experience, often...
Camping brings my family much joy. Along with camping is another thing that brings me joy, outdoor cooking. I enjoy grilling and have done a fair amount of it over the years. Grilling and outdoor cooking isn’t limited to burgers and hotdogs, although I still consider them to be my go-to favorites...
Summer reading challenges are beginning to pop up. Summer is a great time to kick back, grab a glass of cold lemonade or iced tea, and get lost in a good book. Many library systems come out with reading challenges and programs which are a great way to keep kids reading throughout the summer months...
I made it thirteen days into No Mow May and have decided to forgo future attempts. I’ve seen a fair amount of conflicting information in recent years as to whether or not mowing your lawn in the month of May is a good or bad idea. I’m not an expert on the subject and I do not have a background in...
My family discovered the joy of camping during the summer of 2016. I don’t recall what prompted that first trip to Lake Auburn campground near Victoria, MN. My wife and I weren’t what you would call avid campers. Our experiences prior to that first trip were minimal, but we both enjoyed the...
