After three years as a reporter in Minnesota, I have decided it is time to move on and I will be retiring at the end of March. As I move toward that date, I am working on two big projects that will round out my second act career as a journalist. First, I have been working on a series of articles about bridges in the region. That will be published in our annual Progress Editions which will be delayed a few weeks this year because of the transition from RiverTown Multimedia to O'Rourke Media Group. The second project is a seven-part series on land and water quality. It will look at concentrated animal feeding operations - CAFOs - and how they affect agriculture. Then the series will look at how water is protected, both for drinking and for other uses. Then the series will end with a good look at sustainable and regenerative agriculture. There are some interesting people doing work in all of these areas. I'll be listing link to the articles in both series as they become available. Check back here.
