The subject of this column might be a little late, but the message is still as relevant as ever. In the United States history, many groups have not been treated the same (women, blacks). In the beginning, they have been denied access to public places and not protected under certain laws (Nope, not...
This coming Monday is the Fourth of July. A time for gatherings, parades, picnics and fireworks. It is a celebration of when the United States declared its independence from the United Kingdom. The Declaration of Independence was a document that basically said a people of a nation had a right to...
What about them? They are interesting, at least at the time you read them. And maybe even down the road when you bring up some of this useless information just for conversation sake. I was rummaging through a book called The Best of Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader and pulled out many facts which mean...
Tuesday was the first official day of summer and it was a warm day, although not as warm and humid as the previous two days. One thing we can count on with the weather in Minnesota is that it can go from extremely cold days in the winter to extremely warm and, at times, humid days in the summer....

My daughter Ellen’s fourth grade class just finished memorizing all 50 states and their capitals. We studied those darn things for weeks, using maps and homemade flashcards.
