This week, as Americans gather for their Thanksgiving feast, they will have plenty to be thankful for. We can be thankful for our family, who love and support us in our daily lives, who are there for us when we need help, and who, in turn, receive love and support from us when they need it. We can...
The last few months have seemed to go by in a blur at the newspaper. It seems like it was just a short time ago when we were preparing for the school year and fall sports to begin and elections to take place, and now they’re all over, we’ve already jumped into the winter sports season and are...

Since first starting as editor of the Le Sueur News-Herald in 1988, I have covered close to 30 elections. Some of these were major elections and others included just local races. The way elections are covered has changed a great deal during that time, but some things have remained unchanged. I...
We are less than three weeks from Election Day, and in this week’s issue of The New Prague Times we are presenting our Voter’s Guide, with information on the candidates for local races for the Minnesota Legislature, county boards, city councils and school board. We encourage every citizen to...
“Journalism Matters - Now more than ever.” That is the theme for National Newspaper Week, which is being celebrated October 7-13. The New Prague Times joins newspapers across the nation in celebrating the free press and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which keeps the news media from...
