Capitol chatter: Minnesota primary to be different

Beverly Godfrey column: Sharing food — for the win
You know you’ve just won the potluck if you come home with an empty crockpot. I recently felt like a winner when my fried rice disappeared at one of those end-of-school-year-awards-ceremony-potluck events you probably have attended. It wasn’t exactly homemade, being mostly from...

Beverly Godfrey column: Flipping out over Canadian money
A recent visit to a fast-food drive-through may have been a life-altering experience. I ordered my food, drove forward, paid and was handed my change. Before continuing with the story, some background becomes relevant: I was raised close enough to the border that it’s a lifetime...

Capitol Chatter: The Minnesota ‘L’ gets lots of political attention
ST. PAUL — Few people other than politicians think about the Minnesota “L.” But the L is very important this election year as statewide...

Jim Souhan column: Seeing oneself in potential hire typical Minnesota
If the Timberwolves hire Dave Joerger as their next head coach, they will be perpetuating a theme in Minnesota sports. Many decisionmakers hire in their own image. Wolves President Flip Saunders, who is running the coaching search, looks at Joerger and sees the younger version of...

Beverly Godfrey: Rules of rummage
It’s time to declare my favorite hunting season open — rummage sale season. I enjoy time spent getting snacks and taking a pleasant drive with the kids. Give them a dollar, and they can shop all morning. Meanwhile, I can prowl my neighbors’ garages for rain boots, Columbia...

Beverly Godfrey column: Thinking of brighter days
As the sun has started to appear with more frequency, I feel happier, like my old self again, and realize how much my energy was depleted by our long bout with gray, cold and snow. I would have needed the constitution of a robot not to feel depressed this past winter. A lot of people...

Beverly Godfrey column: The drama of plastic bags, part two
After writing last Sunday about recycling plastic shopping bags, I got a nice email from Sandy Leake, who volunteers at the CHUM food shelf in downtown Duluth. She said they always can use donated bags to distribute food. Happy for an alternative that didn’t involve me trying to...

Beverly Godfrey column: Bagging the future
I drew a line with a peanut-butter jar last week and threw it in the trash. I believe in recycling; it’s good for the planet, and it is the law to separate recyclables from the trash. But peanut butter jars are such a mess. How much water am I wasting to wash it? That must negate...

Column: Time for college hockey to abandon 'neutral ice' playoff sites
The building was sold out. The fans were crazy. The atmosphere of Wednesday night’s Wild-Avalanche playoff game was quite a sight, no different from any other game in that series. Anyone think it would have been better played in Grand Rapids, Mich.? Didn’t think so. It’s...

Beverly Godfrey column: ’Tis some season
The scene outside my window reminds me of last April’s snowfall, which I was cleaning up when my shovel broke. I went to a big-box retailer to buy a new one, but their inventory had moved on to garden shears and weed killer. No shovels. I was a bit dumbfounded when a salesperson...

Beverly Godfrey column: What should parents expect? Frustration
The Internet headline was something I couldn’t help but click on: “Police: Florida man killed infant son because he was crying too much.” It’s the kind of story that makes me wonder whether I should be in the news business because reading it, I felt a little dizzy, like I...
