Column: Believing the best
I was bored and grumpy: a bad combination for a 4-year-old. We were taking a trip to Oregon, and my grandma, my sister and I were all in the back seat of our car. Mom and Dad were in the front. I’d gotten in trouble a few times already that afternoon, what with being squirrely...

Column: Far be it from me ...
Last week I had the privilege of speaking to a group of roughly 100 ladies at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fulda. I had a great time that evening and enjoyed meeting many of my readers! As I was preparing for the evening, I was praying. A lot. I didn’t want to waste anyone’s...

Column: Longing for home
My parents have a friend. Dr. Dan. I suppose I should say, “had” because Dr. Dan went to be with Jesus a few months ago. He’d been ill for a long time, and he was old. His wife died a few years ago, and he missed her very much. Dr. Dan had been dying in bits for a long...

Column: Retiring Otero left big impression at Worthington Christian
By Mark Woitalewicz, Worthington Christian School WORTHINGTON — Welcome from the Worthington Christian School(WCS). As the dust settles from the first couple of weeks of school, it made me think of a person named Angel. Angel Otero is a man who, each summer, came in to our school...

Column: The value of vegetables (except for beets)
WORTHINGTON — It’s late summer, and when I was growing up that always meant canning. Mom loved vegetables, and she canned (or froze) them all — tomatoes, beans, corn, peas. Oh, how I remember the sweat-filled hours my mom would spend “putting up” vegetables and fruit every...

Column: A different kind of lullaby
The concentrator machine is breathing for my mother. It separates the oxygen out of the air, removing nitrogen and other trace gasses. She uses it whenever she sleeps or lies down to rest. A lullaby of clean air. In out. In out. In out. I hear it as I lie down to sleep on Mom and...

Column: For the love of a blanket named Blue
I was reminded not long ago of a cliché, which remains true despite its overuse: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I was talking with my youngest daughter who, at 8 years old, still loves the baby blanket that she’s had since she was small. The blanket’s name is Blue, which,...

Column: Grade school lessons
For several days now my daily routine has taken me across The Grade in Worthington, which is a man-made stretch of road that crosses Lake Okabena, separating the lake from Sunset Bay. I am not fond of driving across The Grade, which is why it is capitalized in my mind, like it’s...
