Column: Storing memories or boxes of clutter?
During the past month, I've been sorting 45 years of clutter in our house. My friend said, "I fall in love with too many things but now I have to let go." I remember saving so many things for our children. I think there were 13 boxes of ribbons, trophies, pictures, favorite toys,...

Autumn is synonymous with the apple harvest in Minnesota. No matter how old you are, nothing tastes better than biting into a juicy, snappy, crisp apple for an evening snack or a quick after school snack. Because of our ideal apple weather this summer, the crop is ready two to three...

Book Report: Restaurant owner pre-dates Kroc
As a wee tad, I saw a movie called "The Harvey Girls," starring Judy Garland and a bevy of '40s beauties. I thought it told the story of how a restaurateur named Fred Harvey recruited a bevy of '40s beauties to work in his restaurants along a railroad line called "The Atchison,...
