Michelle's column: The Great Turkey Experiment of 2013
I took my little 11-pound turkey out of the freezer and put it into the refrigerator Sunday afternoon. That much, I knew to do. Anything else, from here on out, is all going to be part of what I’m now calling The Great Turkey Experiment of 2013. For the record, I am 46 years...

Nathan's column: Our most dangerous holiday
We celebrate Thanksgiving is this week: America’s annual opportunity for friends and family to come together, sit around their dining room table and make plans for their Black Friday shopping. It’s just like the Pilgrims, who were notoriously cheap when it came to their Christmas...

Student column: A worthy event for local veterans
Veterans Day. It comes around once a year. At Farmington High School, we like to celebrate Veterans Day in a special way. We celebrate our veterans by hosting a Patriotic Day dinner and presentation. The food at this event is spectacular. It’s something that many people look...

Guest column: Kline says Minnesotans lose with ‘ObamaCare’
The numbers are daunting. 140,000. That’s the number of people in Minnesota who already have been notified their health coverage will be canceled as a result of the President’s health care law, referred to by most including the President as “ObamaCare.” For many Minnesotans...

Nathan's column: Time again to answer the call
The latest edition of the video game Call of Duty came out earlier this month. There’s a part of me that feels like I shouldn’t know that, considering I’m old enough now to have played Super Mario Bros. when it first came out on the original Nintendo Entertainment System in...

Michelle's column: Something special in Farmington
I felt a little out of sorts Monday. It was Veterans Day, and I was sitting at my desk all day, instead of spending time with Farmington’s veterans. It was unsettling for me. This year is the first I can remember when the American Legion and VFW didn’t have a Veterans Day breakfast...

Nathan's column: Squatting for the Olympic spirit
With the 2014 Winter Olympics — official motto: Everybody’s Second-Favorite Olympics — just a few months away, it seems like everybody’s getting into the spirit. The Olympic torch is making its way around the world and even into space on its way to Sochi, Russia. Athletes...

Student column: Getting ready for finals
First day of school: Two months ago. MEA break: Come and gone. Halloween: Over. First trimester of the school year: Three weeks left. Why is it that time always flies by so fast? It seems like just yesterday I was getting ready for my first day of sophomore year. Now we are already...

Nathan's column: Bring on basketball season
It’s been a rough run of things for men’s sports teams in Minnesota. The Lynx have won two WNBA titles in three years, and the Gopher women’s hockey team might not lose again until global warming forces everyone to switch to roller hockey. But the XY set? Things are not nearly...

Michelle's column: Technologically savvy, one step at a time
I’m a little bit excited about my new phone. Now I just have to figure out how to use it. Monday was my birthday. I worked a half day, then took the late afternoon off so The Beau and I could celebrate. Well, honestly, “observe” may be more like it. “Celebrate” is...

Nathan's column: Sexiness is mother of invention
Some people worry the United States has lost its ability innovate. That we no longer chase scientific advances or other breakthroughs the way we once did. That we are being left behind by more ambitious nations. Generally, that we’d rather kick back with some corn chips and a...

Student column: Why the rush to grow up?
Growing up is typically something that young kids look forward to. They want to have more freedom. Hanging out with your friends without your parents having to set up your “play date,” getting your license and being able to drive yourself places and being a cool high school student...

Nathan's column: Tales of some sexy beasts
I try not to get too involved in other people’s matters of personal preference. Some people like spicy food. Others need to chug a glass of water after eating a slice of pepper jack cheese. Some enjoy TV shows about spoiled housewives. Others watch documentaries. I don’t judge. Like,...
