Doug Wolter: Twins fans need convincing
In March, a young man’s thoughts turn to spring. Old men, too. So even though everybody else is fixated on the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, naturally I’m thinking about baseball. The Minnesota Twins open the 2014 regular season on March 31 at the Chicago White Sox, and...

Column: Bubba Bobby Jindal waves war flag
WASHINGTON — This town can get pretty wound up when a politician misbehaves. Given some of the reactions to Bobby Jindal’s off-script remarks Monday, you’d think he’d been caught with a mirror on his shoe in the ladies’ restroom. No, it was much worse than that. Hide...

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...

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...

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...
