WORTHINGTON -- The Biotechnology Advancement Center (BAC) on Prairie Drive has a new tenant whose business is quietly growing. Bioverse, which specializes in creating innovative ways to improve water quality, relocated from Pipestone to Worthington and began operating inside the BAC on Nov. 1, 2012.

December can sure be a stressful month, can't it? In many workplaces, December means end-of-the-year deadlines to make. But above all that is the often-frenzied nature of the holiday season, which means everything from shopping for presents to getting cards and packages out in time. At our home we've had a wild month, to be sure.

Randy Thompson, who serves at the group's treasurer, was emcee. "The Worthington Area Foundation endowment is over $200,000 now," Thompson told a crowd that filled the primary seating area of downtown Worthington's BenLee's to capacity.
For 10 years, the St. Paul Pioneer Press has published listings of things for which first-graders in that city are thankful. Appearing in conjunction with the Thanksgiving holiday, some of this year's samples are precious -- for example, more than one thanked a mom and dad for taking care of them. Some are a little heartbreaking; one boy was thankful for his mom because his dad wasn't around anymore.
