Our chance to be on Leno
For several decades, one of the great fears of virtually every Minnesota newspaper editor was that one of our headlines, stories, or ads would appear on late night TV.
At the time, both David Letterman and Jay Leno ran weekly segments featuring newspaper goof-ups. Letterman's was called "Small Town News" and Leno's was simply titled "Headlines." Both comics weren't shy about throwing the newspaper's name in there, right along with mistakes so funny, I admittedly almost died laughing.

Live a little at the county fair
Whenever the Cottonwood County Fair rolls around, I cannot help but recall the first time I attended the fair.
For me, it was a challenge just finding the grounds. The year was 1988 and I had started working here just a couple of days earlier, having arrived from my editor position at the Montevideo American-News.
