A couple of weeks ago a few of my hunting buddies and I spent a few days out in Winner, South Dakota, hunting pheasants. I’ve been making my way to Winner at least once a year for the past 20 years. Over the years a number of things have changed. We have always hunted the same land and have...

Just a second while I strap on my spurs because I am about to get on my high horse. A year ago on this page I wrote about the rising cost of health care because of the Affordable Healthcare Act, otherwise know as Obamacare. Well, affordable health care is anything but affordable. Premiums are...

My last column was about buying a new alarm clock. This one is going to be about time. More precisely, the following is more about the word “time” than how to tell time. I figured there is no better time to write about time than now, so I suppose you could say it’s about time. We have part time,...

I can’t tell you how long it’s been since we’ve bought a new alarm clock in the Peterson household, but it’s been awhile. The old one we brought with us when we moved here nearly 12 years ago. It had the standard features of the backup battery, digital display, AM/FM radio which we never used, and...

The Star Herald staff is busy putting together a special section featuring all of the 4-H winners. Look for that in next week’s paper. Next on the community...

I have one final thought on the tremendously successful Fourth of July celebration at The Lake in Luverne. That thought is, before we get too attached to calling the lake “The Lake,” let’s change the name. I know we had chances to throw a few name ideas around, but here is my thought: Seeing how...

Just in time for the Fourth of July we installed a new flagpole in front of our house. As with any project around our house, there is a certain amount of debate (argument) about the project. This time the debate (argument) was about the location of said flagpole. Before the location debate surfaced...

The first day of summer was Monday, and that means the days are now starting to get shorter. I know you didn’t want to hear that, so let’s put that thought on the back burner for a few months. I suppose it might be age, but summers seem so busy nowadays. So, for this column I am going to write...
