As a first-year gardener I’ve made plenty of rookie mistakes this growing season. … Planting too late in the spring, spacing plants too closely together, and not reading the directions on the seed labels. Actually, the garden wasn’t intended to be a garden in the first place. It started as a swath...

My sisters and I met Sunday afternoon at the farm for an impromptu social gathering. There are five of us, but only four could make it on short notice, and it was just us — no husbands, no kids, no grandkids and, of course, no Mom and Dad. Mom died in September of 2019, and Dad died in August of...
To the Editor: The Luverne and Rock County community is fortunate to have generous organizations like the Luverne United Methodist Church and ATLAS of Rock County. The Methodist Church hosts the Rock County Emergency Food Shelf, every week providing free nutrition to local families and individuals...

The day might have seemed flawless to the people who attended...
To the Editor: Maybe it’s just me, but I think farmers are all kicking each other while they’re down. The family of a close personal friend of mine is struggling to keep their dairy afloat, and loan payments are sucking up their savings. According to Minnesota Public Radio, the same thing is...
To the Editor: I spent last week working in downtown Luverne and was amazed to see all the walking traffic. Whether it was the dad pushing a baby stroller, the postal worker, a day care provider taking her children on an adventure, customers heading to downtown stores or businesses , others heading...
To the Editor: I am writing this letter to encourage all voters in the first and third county commissioner districts to be sure to vote in the upcoming primary.  It is very important that those of us in agriculture maintain a balanced county board. Everyone in Rock County is affected by agriculture...
To the Editor: Luverne where were you? I attended the Badlands House Band concert Friday night, July 29, at the Rock County Fair. The band was awesome, and I met some people I haven't seen in a long time. I had a great time. But I was very disappointed with the attendance for a band of this caliber...
