WORTHINGTON — Representatives of many nations will converge in downtown Worthington for this year’s International Festival.

New multi-use winter recreation trails are currently being planned for both the former Prairie View Golf Links property and Minnesota West’s campus. From Robinson’s perspective, this recreation-development decision is simply a smart use of current resources.
WORTHINGTON — The American fascination with finding the healthiest food and dieting has been evident since at least the late 19th century, when Dr. John Harvey Kellogg invented corn flakes in 1894 as a form of improved food for his sanitarium patients. Diets and advice books written by medical professionals have offered a dizzying array of oftentimes conflicting opinions to the public. Many of these diets — see the grapefruit diet and the cookie diet for faddish failures — have been less than healthful and completely unhelpful.
