Column: The high points of a visit to southwest Minnesota
I learned only last week that Al Tlam — Elvin Tlam — died two years ago. He was 88, and he lived in State of Washington for decades. An engineer for Boeing. I would be surprised if half-a-dozen people from the local area know of Al. I knew Al because we each had rooms in Pioneer...

Column: Rockin' around the Christmas tree with classic tunes
By Ray Crippen I’ll tell you when we had a good time at Christmas. We had a good time at Christmas between — oh — 1934 and 1958. I’ll tell you why we had a good time. We’ve talked about this before. We had a good time because when someone at Wilmont heard a new song,...

Column: Junior college prepared pilots for WWII
WORTHINGTON -- A Worthington boy was telling his dad about Pearl Harbor as they drove home from the cemetery on Memorial Day. He had watched a Pearl Harbor DVD he said. "The Japanese missed our carriers, but we had no way to fight back. We weren't ready for a war." I said nothing....

Column: Fritz's Christmas story is one that bears repeating
WORTHINGTON -- Christmas is a time for twice-told and thrice-told tales. Oh, and even more. How many times through the passing of 20 centuries do you guess the story of the birth of Christ in the stable at Bethlehem has been told? This would be a total beyond comprehension. I have...

Column: One of our own plays role in crucial battle
WORTHINGTON -- As we carry our flowers to graves this weekend none of us is heard grumbling, "Been here, done this. I won't be back." It is our intent to make that prickling walk to the gravesites again and again. So it is for a column which this year will go to print at the onset...

Column: There's always something -- or someone -- to fear
WORTHINGTON -- I never have known a Bolivian or a Bulgarian. I can't speak about people in Bolivia or Bulgaria. Speaking of Americans -- I know quite a few of those. I think Americans always need to be afraid of something. It is our heritage. Paul Revere rode to shout (shudder),...

Column: Buffalo Ridge -- our answer to the Hoover Dam
WORTHINGTON -- When you get above age 30, people sometimes ask you about things you remember that are not often seen any longer. Or maybe it is when you get above 40. You know what I am talking about. I even have people ask me about such things. I have told some people of barns,...

Column: Community orchestra not new to Worthington
WORTHINGTON -- The first guitar music I ever knew came with cowboy movies, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers at the Grand Theater. "I'm back in the saddle again, out where a friend is a friend ..." Cowboy shows were rated B-movies. I heard people say guitars were B-instruments. Very big...

Column: Remembering Eddy Arnold, and a memorable drive
WORTHINGTON -- Eddy Arnold died last month. I would have guessed Mr. Arnold's passing would have earned greater attention from the press. My word. In his career, Eddy Arnold had 37 recordings in the Top Ten of the pop charts. On country music charts, Eddy Arnold's records spent more...

Column: Think spring: Here's a love story
WORTHINGTON -- Now and again a story or an interview from a day long gone will come mind. I thought lately of a wonderful love story. I talked with Achsah Payton Christensen at Slayton in 1984, when she was 91. (Achsah is from the Bible, she said; she cited the verses from Joshua...
