WORTHINGTON — Growing up on a farm near St. Kilian, Carol Hieronimus may have been destined to work in health care. “I grew up in a home where my parents took care of their parents,” Hieronimus said earlier this week at Sanford Worthington Clinic, where she works as an LPN. “I was around older people a lot, and I think that’s kind of what triggered me to choose my career.”
WORTHINGTON — Donkey basketball is returning to Worthington next week for an encore performance. The second annual King Turkey Day Donkey Basketball Fundraiser event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Thursday (doors open at 6 p.m.) at Worthington High School. The 2017 version of the event was so successful, KTD board member Susanne Murphy said, that it was an easy decision to bring the unique brand of hoops for a second go-round.
WORTHINGTON — A yearly celebration honoring the women of the Worthington area will take place next Monday night.

A 6 p.m. meal will be catered by Hi-Lo Catering, and entertainment in the form of a presentation by Willow Sweeney is scheduled for 7 p.m.
WORTHINGTON — For many in the medical field, Sanford Worthington represents a wide range of outstanding employment opportunities. That’s true for people who grew up far from Worthington, as well as folks come from its backyard. A number of Sanford Worthington employees, in fact, were raised in Worthington or nearby communities, then subsequently made the decision to return home for a career with Sanford.
EDGERTON — It wasn’t all that long ago that Patti Van Essen spent a majority of her time helping her husband, Rod, on their rural Edgerton farm. To say she’s a bit busier now would be no small understatement. She’s now the owner of Tally Ho Koffie and the Gray Wolf Saloon, located next to each other in Edgerton’s downtown.
WORTHINGTON — In 2006, the first annual Hospice Cottage Fundraiser banquet was hosted at American Reformed Church. It was a bit smaller in scale than it is today, as event co-chairperson Susanne Murphy recalls.
SIBLEY, Iowa — Since his arrival at Sibley-Ocheyedan High School in the fall of 2000, hundreds of students have passed through the doors of Peter Carlson’s band room.
FULDA — It will be 20 years ago this August that Beth Cuperus came on board to work at Fulda Memorial Library. Little did she expect that she would be appointed as the library’s director a short time later, and still be in that post today. Cuperus, originally from Lead, S.D., grew up in the Black Hills before moving to southwest Minnesota for college.
WORTHINGTON — As has been the case since the very first Women’s Expo coordinated by The Globe, Saturday’s event will feature a wide variety of vendors, a mix of health-related seminars, wine tastings, prize packages and much more.
WORTHINGTON — Bart and Sherry DeBoer have continued on what could be described as an amazing road to recovery over the last 20 months. On Saturday, March 24, they’ll share the “amazing power of prayer” with attendees of the 25th annual Community Prayer Breakfast. The community is invited to attend the non-denominational event, which is set to begin at 8 a.m. at the American Reformed Church, 1720 N. Burlington Ave., Worthington.
