REPRINT 1945: Genevieve Almost Always Speaking
We get all kinds of odd mail here at the Daily Globe, some of it addressed to people who worked here 20 years ago, and some with the entirely wrong address, so I don't know how the Post Office manage... Posted on 1/19/10 at 12:00 AM
I was very surprised at the number of reader contacts I received about my column a few weeks back on the American Coot. I got lots of calls, emails and stops on the street. There are still plenty of them around town but they are no longer walking around in the snow.
All across Minnesota and the upper Midwest for that matter, pasture land is disappearing. It is not getting sucked up into an alien spaceship or anything like that but it is disappearing nonetheless. What is making it disappear? The answer is some more endless rows of corn and beans.
WORTHINGTON — I think it matters very little if you love them or hate them, this animal will always find a way into your field of vision. In fact, if you live in Worthington, you will very often find them under the wheels of your car.
WORTHINGTON — The only person who isn’t neck deep in work today is the person who is not responsible for even one tree. I drove to my office on Thursday to write this column and I told my Mrs. that I had never seen anything like this in 50-plus years.
WORTHINGTON — There are some folks who can remember a weather event from 30 years ago, or if it snowed last Halloween. I, for one, cannot. If there is not a record kept, I don’t do well in total recall of those types of events.

WORTHINGTON — Dad doesn’t hunt, mom wouldn’t even hold a gun and junior has no interest, why on earth would I send my child to a firearms safety training program?
What a great question and one I would like to take a few paragraphs to answer.
WORTHINGTON — If you visit the Sioux Falls Zoo and, if you are like me, you will get wide-eyed when you get a chance to look over all of the different wild animals that are displayed in the lobby area. Many, if not most, of these large mammals will be from other continents.
ST. PAUL - For more than a decade, Minnesota has spent more than we raised in revenue, cut essential public services and increased the burden on property taxpayers. State leaders borrowed billions from our school and pushed Minnesota's fiscal challenges off for another day. It is time for a change.

WORTHINGTON — Last week, I wrote about a spearing outing that took place on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes in north central Minnesota.
When I think about the diversity in nature, I continue to be overwhelmed. We have a certain number of fish species in southwest Minnesota and I know them all to a point.
