Margaret: Story of a Teen Girl

By Todd Ford

I won’t go into how I know be­cause it might get me in trouble, potentially operatic trouble, but the lives of teenage girls are filled with drama. Reading their Face­book profiles makes daytime soaps su­perfluous. How often have you heard someone accused of being a “drama king?”

Not Much to Say About Political Ads During the Olympics

Kelly Hagen

By Kelly Hagen

I’m a humor columnist, which is shorthand for “I can’t tell a com­petent story to save my life, so … fart.” Anyway, in an effort to counteract the fact that I really don’t have 450-600 words worth of a story to tell any of you this month, I’m try­ing out a new format. It’s like, if I was editor of a daily newspaper, and I knew I didn’t like a page out of yesterday’s newspaper, but I didn’t know how to put a newspaper together myself, so I just took a scissors and cut out the parts that aren’t awful, then rearranged them and glued them back together into a weird collage, like I was an overpaid second-grader.

Traveling isn’t personal, it’s only business

Kelly Hagen

By Kelly Hagan

I know that the first column I can recall writing for the Prairie In­dependent, I wrote about how I was a stay-at-home dad, and how great that was. What I neglected to mention since then is that I went back to work. Sorry, had to be done.

Spectacular North Dakota Hikes Bring the Dog

By Barb Price

As I began reading Spectacular North Dakota: Hikes Bring the Dog, I realized that Susan Wefald has already written a review for her book so I will use her first paragraph which so perfectly states the purpose for Spectacular North Dakota Hikes Bring the Dog. “This book is for anyone who wants to explore North Da­kota’s diverse landscape and learn more about its history.

And it’s for people who love the idea of hiking with their dogs.”
