my $.02 is a blog about a young woman on a quest to see her small rural town in Minnesota become what she believes it has the potential to be: a rural hot spot and desirable tourist destination in the Midwest. She writes with poetry and ambition as she tracks the journey she is taking to help the community she holds so dearly to her heart find its true beauty and hidden potential. She encourages positive comments and is open to ideas and free inspiration.
Windom needs this beautiful song composed and written by Jim Austerman to be played on our courthouse bells. I love waking up to the bells of the courthouse and hearing those bells play on the hour, and how wonderful that Jim Austerman has composed this song for Windom. We should be proud and honored he has done this for our community, and this melody needs to be a part of our downtown in respect of his gift to us.
