  Roller-skating at Skateville in Burnsville Darin Kamnetz Prince’s “Erotic City” blasts from the multi-speaker sound system as the mirrored disco ball ricochets colored prisms on the roller skaters moving in circles around the rink. We have been skating for about an hour now and my hips are starting to feel the exercise and I have to tie my sweater around my waist to cool off. Experienced skaters zip past me with remarkable precision, dancing to the beat, zipping around the rink and practicing spins and jumps while newbies hug the wall as they slowly wobble back and forth ..read more

The sky suddenly darkened, the wind picked up, the crickets sounded, and three planets came out when the moon passed in front of the sun just now. “That was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” my kid exclaimed after today’s solar eclipse totality passed about 10 minutes ago. The sun during the total solar eclipse. Amy Nelson We cheered on the eclipse with visitors to Nebraska on our left, and travelers from Colorado on our right.

It’s finally here! After more than a year of planning to get both our college-aged kids home for the eclipse—and a week of worrying and watching weather patterns and predicted cloud cover—we headed out on our epic road trip Saturday afternoon. As I wrote earlier, after seeing the total solar eclipse in Wyoming in 2017, I’m hooked. It was an amazing experience, something I now plan trips around to view. Last time, our daughter and French Rotary exchange student joined us, but our son had just started his sophomore year of high school at an international school in Botswana. He had some great adv ..read more

The Parma Pizza at OG Zaza Provided We are all pizza experts. We eat pizza more than any other type of food. Some surveys show 1 out of 7 of us is eating pizza on any given day. It’s also the fastest-growing type of restaurant in Minnesota, with new pizza styles and new locations opening every month. My list of favorites is constantly changing, depending on my mood, and is very style-specific. The pizza closest to your home, or freshest out of the oven, often is the best pizza. For me, the key to quality is an intense focus on the basics: dough and sauce. Remember when people used to say ..read more

What to Know About Minnesota’s Pay-Gap Law

Media outlets dubbed last year the “Year of the Girl.” Onscreen and onstage were Barbie, Beyonce, and Taylor Swift. On trend were bows, sequins, and pink. It was like ’90s girl power but for today’s culturally savvy. There was knowing scorn, after all, in actor America Ferrera’s viral “Barbie” monologue, about the state of women. Holding court in a rainbow-streaked set piece, Ferrera’s character marvels at the contradictions: Be a boss, but don’t be mean; be pretty but never tempting or threatening; “…always stand out and always be grateful, but never forget that the system is rigged,” she fu ..read more

The red dirt of Cuyuna’s Bison Run Aaron Huatala Aaron Hautala saw something in the red dirt of the former mining area of Cuyuna, Minnesota, and its surrounding region. As the then “volunteer president” of the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew, Hautala envisioned a grand expansion of the existing 25 miles of iron-rich trail that could, he believed, become “the renaissance of the whole community.” As with many new ideas to reinvigorate struggling mining towns, there was some vague disbelief that something like this might work—tactically, logistically, philosophically, and otherwise. How could a s ..read more
