John Eggers: Dr. King’s dream still resonates
Where were you on Aug. 28, 1963? I remember that it was a warm Wednesday in Minnesota not unlike it has been in this area lately. It was my custom to go home for lunch while working at my hometown Red Owl store. I had worked there part time since I was in seventh-grade. I was now...

John Eggers: A penicillin to help troubled youth?
Often the answers to life's most challenging problems are finding solutions seldom used or even thought about. Who ever thought that a mold would result in the discovery of penicillin? Whoever thought that some hooks attached to a painted piece of wood would catch fish? Or, how about...

Become an artist. That may be the best way for kids to succeed in school and for adults to solve big problems. Artists come in all sizes and shapes. There are young and old and big and small and tall and thin and short and not-so-thin artists. They all have one thing in common: their...

John R. Eggers: Being a game warden can be a dangerous job
It will be 73 years ago this July that the worst tragedy involving Minnesota Game Wardens or Conservation Officers occurred. It happened in my hometown of Waterville, Minn. I was reminded of the incident this winter when I was in my fish house and I heard the sounds of approaching...
