About Us

Norman County News Online was created because neither of the county’s newspapers (Norman County Index or the Twin Valley Times) had a website that was user-friendly with in-depth reporting and an up-to-the-minute online presence that could handle multi-media news.

From 2008 to 2018, I wrote for the Twin Valley Times, but I wanted to learn more about reporting and writing so I enrolled in multi-media journalism at Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) at the age of 70.

I graduated from MSUM (magna cum laude) two years later in May, 2018, and I wanted to use what I had learned in all those classes. That only makes sense, right?

So here I am, launching this online news site, hoping that others will find it useful and be willing to subscribe for the low, low price of $30 per year. If you calculate that out, it comes to slightly over eight cents a day. What a bargain!
