Column: Stop to enjoy the sweet scent of lilacs
Last year at this time their season was over and this year the buds are just beginning to appear. What a difference a year makes. The lilac bush is one of the most fragrant and beautiful signs of spring. Some years they are past their peak by Memorial Day, their flowers spent, and...

Column: Support Veterans; donate to Poppy days
In 1918 Miss Moina Michael on impulse bought a boquet of poppies at New York's Wanamaker's Department Store. At the YMCA business meeting where she worked, she asked everyone to wear the poppy as a tribute to all our veterans who sacrificed their lives for our country. Later she led...

Column: Happy Mother's Day
Sunday is Mother's Day and I think of my mother. Growing up, little things that both comforted and irritated her in our daily routines have now become automatic in my life. I recall her short frame swiftly moving from task to task with few of our modern conveniences. When we came...

Column: Appreciating a simpler way of life
Last week I was looking forward to watching the Twins-Yankee game when I heard it would not be televised due to conflicts between cable companies. I channel surfed and all that was on was the earthquake in Japan, talk of a government shutdown, the budgets on state and national levels...

Column: Grilling season is back in Minnesota
With the warmer April temperatures, our thoughts turn to barbecuing and outdoor cooking. Texans claim the barbecue was born in Texas and spread to other states while other sources give credit to our pioneers, the cowboys, hunters and early Spanish explorers who out of necessity cooked...

Column: Keep your mind and body active
I sent a birthday card to a special lady who turned 91 years old. She is more like a 40-year-old than 90. Ginny is always on the go. She enjoys camping, traveling, reading, gardening, taking photos, compiling a scrap book for each trip, walking and hiking to name a few of her many...

Column: Celebrating, Irish style
On March 17 hardly a person with Irish blood or those who wish they had some, forgets to wear the traditional Emerald Isle green honoring the patron saint of Ireland, St Patrick. The shamrock symbolizes the Trinity and is one of the best known symbols of St Patrick's Day today. Decades...

Column: Lose the stress, find some relief
We all have days when we are stressed out and worry about something. It may be a sick child, or a student a term paper or speech. In our economy, it could be being laid off, work atmosphere or a legal problem. Some stress is healthy, but the other is harmful to people. The American...

Column: Sleepless in Rosemount
It isn't very often I have problems falling asleep. Most of the time my eyes are closed before my head hits the pillow. However, several nights ago I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep. I'm not much of a television watcher. I'd rather listen to the radio or read. Due to circumstances,...

Column: Saturday storm was an old-fashioned blizzard
It's been many years since I recall hearing the phrase, "It wasn't just a Midwestern, but rather an old fashioned blizard." Being raised on a prairie, the wind directions changed so fast. First it would be a gentle South wind. We would rush to get things done knowing the mild weather...

Column: Giving up a year of holiday baking
It seems this past year went so fast, starting with our early spring election ads, meetings, and candidates filing for open spots. Our spring was followed by an almost perfect summer, just the right amount of moisture, very few mosquitoes and a few days of hot weather that resulted...

I am not sure what is happening this year. One day we are talking about oil spills, then traveling to a summit, the illegal immigration, health care issues, the election, unemployment, more stimulus packages and wars. We do a lot of talking, nothing gets resolved because the next...

Column: Taking time to give thanks for life's blessings
Our lives are constantly changing. Our Thanksgiv-ings of yesterday are memories of the ones we celebrated today. As youngsters growing up we so enjoyed spending the day at our grandparents and later at our parents' home. The memories of foods being prepared by grandma and her apron;...
