Doug Wolter: Vikings have a big mess to clean up
A little bit about a bunch of things regarding the dear old NFL: Da Vikings I don’t know who the Minnesota Vikings will choose to be their new head coach, but it’s interesting to consider how closely coaches’ futures are tied to the players under them. Recently fired head...

Les Knutson: High school football, Texas style
Les Knutson Daily Globe sports columnist ARLINGTON, Texas — A book, a movie and a television show all named “Friday Night Lights” are based on Texas high school football, highlighting the storied traditions at Odessa Permian in the west-Texas oil country region. While...

Doug Wolter: West football is much too much to toss aside
If the powers at Minnesota West Community and Technical College are serious about eliminating football, a brilliant first step would be to suspend the program first, and then do the obligatory review later. I would assert that a suspension-first philosophy puts the cart before the...

Steve Dudley was high school teammate of Cowboys’ Jay Novacek
Les Knutson WORTHINGTON — One of the best all-around area athletes of the past school year was Worthington’s Will Dudley. A junior in 2012-13, Dudley was a dedicated, hard-working varsity contributor for the Trojans in both football and basketball before really excelling as...

Jetsons football? No, not yet
It's never too early to think about football season and to speculate whether the NFL will ever resemble that episode of "The Jetsons" where the players are programmable robots. Personally, I think professional football - with real people - will continue to exist for our grandchildren's...

Scott Rall Column: No right number will ever exist
There is no bigger wildlife issue brewing today in Minnesota than wolves. The timber wolf was on the endangered species list for a very long time. They were hunted and trapped to almost complete extinction many years ago. Minnesota had a population goal of 1,600 wolves in the state....

Scott Rall Column: What's more fun than a good dive?
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. I decided that...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Disappearing pasture land accelerates
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. Seed...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Why do we value our resources so lightly?
WORTHINGTON -- So what is a walleye, a deer, or a duck worth? To me, they are worth thousands of dollars. Let me explain. I was reading the Star Tribune website the other day and they were reporting on a poaching ring that was busted in northern Minnesota. There, 31 native and non-native...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Trees, taxes, wildlife habitat all have deadlines
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. I, like almost every other...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Thirty in thirty is a fabulous score
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. Other things do seem to stay in my memory bank for...

SCOTT RALL COLUMN: Where on earth is Wally's Wood Duck World?
WORTHINGTON -- Where on earth is Wally's Wood Duck World? This is the name of a pheasant hunting spot Thad Lambert and I used to frequent east of Worthington. It was a shallow slough that never had any water in it in the fall, but seemed to be a paradise for a large number of wood...

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. About 11 percent of the population in...

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. There...
