WHY DO I BLOG?
I decided to grab another cup of coffee and sit down and write my blog on a rainy Saturday afternoon. As I sat down in my comfortable recliner and contemplated on what to blog about, I asked myself “Why do I write a blog each week?” Before I began writing this week’s blog I looked back over the 300 blogs that I have written and … Continue reading WHY DO I BLOG?
HANG WITH ME AT STATE
Spending time at state girls’ basketball in the cities never gets old for me. Once again the Minneota Vikings girls qualified for the state tournament and I am lucky enough to be able to broadcast their games on KLQP. What I like the most about being at state is visiting with people I see every year at Williams Arena. Thursday it was raining as I … Continue reading HANG WITH ME AT STATE

I make a number of … Continue reading FRONT ROW SEAT

So with that being said, here we go. I know … Continue reading PERSONAL BLOG

I never talk to complete strangers in a elevator, but all three of these ladies started talking to me to my surprise. The two day state dance competition was over and I was on my way home. In the elevator one … Continue reading STATE DANCE IS AMAZING
THE STORM IS COMING!
Saturday was my 22nd year of covering the section dance competition in Montevideo. I know more about dance team competitions now than I did back in 2001. I knew nothing about dance when I started covering it on the radio. I have been so blessed to have Grace Johnson and Ken Franzky on the radio broadcast with me the last few years. The knowledge they … Continue reading THE STORM IS COMING!
