  • Wheelin’ with WEB marks one-year anniversary
    I wrote my first WEB column for the Reader one year ago on Oct. 15, 2015, so this weekend I’ll be celebrating my one-year anniversary. I think I’ll find a football game on Saturday to honor the occasion. Many, many thanks to all of the sponsors of the page, it is very much appreciated. It sounds like we’re all signed up for another year. Also, a great big thank you to Melissa Vander Plas for all of her work on the article, and her patience. I know it isn’t always easy working with me!
  • Signs of fall include Honeycrisp apples, harvest
    I ate a Honeycrisp as I did some chores. The Honeycrisp is Minnesota’s state apple, appointed to that office in 2006. For years, the University of Minnesota said the Honeycrisp was a cross between a Macoun and a Honeygold. DNA testing has found that it’s actually a cross between a Keepsake and an unknown apple. No matter. It still tastes great.

Are politics today still able to meet the challenges our country is facing?
