BREAKING NEWS: MOWER FAIR CANCELS FOR 2020 One of the last fairs in the area has announced it is canceling for 2020. On Sunday, the Mower County Fair Board decided to cancel its 2020 fair. In making the decision, the board said: “With concern for public health and the constraints put in place, it is not possible to hold an event as large as the Mower County Fair.” The board has vowed to work with Mower County 4-H to provide the space needed to allow members the opportunity to show their projects and have them judged in a format that is allowed. Board members say they will start planning for a bigger and better 2021 Mower County Fair. Most other area fairs canceled their 2020 runs after the Minnesota State Fair decided to pull the plug in May.
BREAKING NEWS: Owatonna Police investigating stabbing death Dartts Park Owatonna Police along with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are investigating a weekend murder at Dartts Park in Owatonna. Officers responded to a 911 call of a stabbing at the park located at 600 Cherry St. NE around 5:17 p.m. Sunday. Police found an unconscious man on the ground with what appeared to be stab wounds. Police and emergency workers attempted to save the man, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. He has been taken to the Southern Minnesota Regional Medical Examiner’s Office for identification and an autopsy. The BCA’s mobile crime unit responded to the scene. Crime scene personnel recovered two knives at the park. Investigators are asking any members of the public who witnessed or have information about the incident to contact Owatonna Police at 507-444-3800 or 911. The Times will have more information as it becomes available.

Good afternoon. I recently started a fundraiser to help the MN Zoo as they very low on funds due to being closed for COVID-19 and are at risk of closing. So far, the state has not approved a bonding bill that will help. Please share or contribute. All funds go through Facebook without fees and directly to the MN Zoo. Thank you.
Why don't you update this page
Congratulations to the Steele County Times on this week's publication, particularly the section on the Steele County Free Fair. The picture of Sleeping Beauty should win awards. The article on the pen pals was inspiring and uplifting. I appreciate this publication and the fact that the fair articles are not about the editor as in another publication. I will intentionally shop at advertisers of this publication as the quality is best and the written communication is vital to our community.

I captured my 1st tornado yesterday evening at about 4:30 pm. It was brief and lasted between 1 to 2 minutes. This was taken looking west near I-35 between Hope MN and Ellendale MN.
