Discontinued . . .

By Lisa Nelson

For a woman, it can take a lifetime to find that go-to lipstick. The one that makes her feel as though she can face any job interview, hot date or blistering break-up. The one that transforms her from ordinary to extraordinary with one creamy swipe across her lips. I found mine the summer after my […]

Dad, Chicken and Sparklers

By Susan Sundwall

Few things excited Dad more than an upcoming celebration. He had a great imagination and a sense of fun that permeated the air around us for weeks. Even for lesser celebrations he would enthuse. I learned how to pronounce Punxsutawney from Dad. Groundhog’s Day deserved at least that. He also delighted in reading candy hearts […]

As Father’s Day draws near, like so many, I think about my Dad. I remember him to be a man of honor, courage and heart – a kind, loving father – but I have to admit, I didn’t always see him that way. When I was a kid, I referred to my father as “my […]

Why Are You Looking Up Here?

By Linda DeMers Hummel

Why Are You Looking Up Here?

It took a few years for Uncle Tom to remodel his kitchen. Maybe it was only months (life moved more slowly when I was a kid), but every time we’d visit, there was a tarp hanging somewhere or an open bucket of paint on the floor. Toward the end of the project, the only part […]

The Monster

One of the worst epidemics in the history of the United States occurred in 1952. That year a monster virus stalked the country. It inflicted a disease called poliomyelitis, which often was called simply polio. This particular virus was unique because of its specificity for humans and its highly contagious nature. Nearly 58,000 people fought […]
