As you are probably aware of, there are a number of ways you can tell when we are about to embark on a change of seasons — the calendar being the most obvious, but there are other signs as well. When spring is just around the corner, you start to see more boats being trailered down the highway and...

Wow, July 4 already! Where has the summer gone? The Fourth is the unofficial midpoint of summer, and for me it’s going to be over with before I know it. Buffalo Days is over, tomorrow is the Fourth of July, and after next week Hot Dog night will be in the books for another year. Again, where has...

One of the most popular — and of course most read — sections of our paper is the On the Record report. Each week On the Record recaps the calls that came into the local sheriff’s department. We have, on occasion, inadvertently left the On the Record report out of the paper, and rest assured, we...
When you start to age, that’s different from getting older — at least I differentiate between the two. Getting older has more plusses than minuses. On the plus side, as you get older, you get your driver’s license. A few years older you can vote. Tack on a couple more years after you’re old enough...

It would seem the month of March, or at least this third week of March, is birthday week for the Peterson family. First, our son Nate turned 40 last week Tuesday followed by Mary celebrating her birthday on Saturday, the 23rd. Then our youngest grandson, Owen, lights eight candles on his cake later...

In my last column I mentioned a guy leaving Bomgaars with a new shovel he had just purchased, and the thought had occurred to me that it was a little late in the season for a new shovel. Boy, was I wrong! It seems I find myself in the market for a new shovel even this late in the snow-shoveling...
For What's It Worth — Rick Peterson
I am sure many of you experienced date confusion over the recent holidays. By that I mean it was difficult at best during the weeks of Christmas and New Year to keep track of what day of the week it was. It seemed for two weeks in a row we had two Mondays each week, and to kind of balance that out...
