A fine line: November's election is important

Inhuman Newman: It's not always about sports

Willi Nilli -- Pokemon Go: Gotta catch them all!
For the last few weeks, the world has been overrun with Pokemon Go players hitting the streets to find that rare Dratini, to hatch their 10K eggs and to level up their characters to Level 20 to get their hands on Ultra Balls so they can “catch them all.” I’ve heard a lot of...

One thing: Peace
Just to refresh your memory, the question was, “What is the one thing that everyone should have, regardless of the cost?” It is the question I have been asking a lot of different folks during the course of interviews I have been conducting on behalf of the newspaper including...

Another summer vacation, another road trip
Over the last few years I have gone on my fair share of road trips across the country, be it to Texas for the FCS National Championship games or to Mount Rushmore for a vacation with my wife. By the time you are reading this I will have just gotten back from another fun-filled and...

INHUMAN NEWMAN: With every day, a battle against cancer is won
Having been deeply entrenched in sports my entire life, it has helped me to take a competitive approach to most things. Especially so, in my battle with leukemia. And every day that I am still here, I feel I have won a battle. A cancer diagnosis blind-sides you, like a hit from a...

No longer bored with board games
Until I moved to Worthington (Minn.) for my first job out of college, I wasn’t much of a board game or even card game player. I just never...

The one thing: Our story is the story of water
Several months ago, on my way into our weekly editorial meeting, a question came up during a discussion on MPR that was so thought-provoking, I commandeered it for my Inquiring Reporter question that week. I have continued to incorporate it into almost every interview I’ve done...

New dog teaching a not-so-old man new tricks

Great to be at the top
The announcement last week that New Richmond High School was once again ranked among the best of the best of all high schools in the state and the nation doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. But it shouldn’t be an overlooked honor either, even though this is the third straight...

Living in the new world
