WORTHINGTON — Craig Stewart not only likes reminiscing, but has a special interest in memory care. As a result, Stewart — who resides at Ecumen Meadows in Worthington — has found a way to look back with others and lend a hand at the same time.
Not long before my dad left his multi-yurt home in upstate New York earlier this month for Worthington, he announced his plans to bring what amounted to a full recording studio with him. Well, good, I thought. My dad, now retired, has a master’s degree in music composition, and I was happy he’d be spending some time working on some sort of new piece during the extended visit to our place that he’d planned. Little did I guess, though, that his next piece would involve my entire family.
JACKSON — Plans for a park that would be home to a splash pad, veterans memorial and more are continuing to evolve, and it’s hoped that work on an initial phase of the project begins this summer.

There’s plenty of opportunity for new amenities on the site, Jackson City Administrator Matt Skaret said Friday.

Jasper faces felony charges of felon convicted of a crime of violence-firearm violation and fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance-not a small amount of marijuana while in possession of a firearm. He also faces a misdemeanor charge of possession of a small amount of marijuana.
Earlier this month, Becca and I went to a marvelous Worthington Chamber Singers concert. We were both greatly impressed at the quality of the performance and with the talent demonstrated by people living here in our community.
WORTHINGTON — DeWayne McIntyre spent several years in the Kansas City, Mo. area, as well as many years in Maryville, Mo. He likes the size of Maryville — with a population of slightly less than 12,000 people — better, and that’s reason he’s now happy to be in Worthington, where he’s Hy-Vee’s new store director. McIntyre began his duties at the store on Nov. 26.
