Most good food writing is not found in recipe books or in cooking magazines, which usually focus on nuts and bolts issues of technique.
Charley Kempthorne has spent more than half his life teaching other people how to write, first as a college English professor and later as the founder of the first reminiscence writing workshop in the nation, back in 1976. He's helped all manner of folks get published, including a charwoman in Kempthorne's hometown of Manhattan, Kan., who was given $1,000,000 for her manuscript. The old lady didn't share her good fortune with her mentor, so he and his wife continued to work as a successful painting contractor in Manhattan. Kempthorne has an M.F.A.
A Saturday morning accident on HWY 35 in Pierce County injured three Minnesota residents -- including a 23-month-old child. The accident occurred at approximately 10:30 a.m. when Debra Morgan, 51, Red Wing, was southbound of HWY 35 driving a 1995 Plymouth minivan when she attempted to make a left-hand turn into a driveway just south of HWY 63. While making the turn Morgan's van was hit by a northbound Chevrolet pickup driven by Natasha Chester 23, Minnesota City. Also in the pickup was Chester's 23-month-old daughter Jolissa Nelton.
Dear Editor, The roots of education in the Midwest go back to country schoolhouses. The farmers who served on the boards of education made sure their school teachers had the classroom supplies they needed to educate the students, plus coal to keep the buildings warm in the winter. Those necessities were provided for first. The Hudson Board of Education seems to have forgotten its roots. They don't appear to remember that their first priority is to provide for the proper education of students in the classrooms. Next year classroom supply budgets will be cut by 15 percent.
