Sara Tischauser column: It's not just forgetting a memory or two

Literally Lorna column: Downsizing -- Oh, what a relief!
Would you believe me if I told you downsizing your life and living quarters could be a huge relief? Most likely not too many would agree with me. A year ago my husband and I downsized our living quarters from 3,000 square feet to 800 square feet. I was wondering how this was going...

Greg Andrews/Leon Morrison column: Soil conservation and soil health
Soil conservation has been around since 1934, when the first contour strips were laid out near Coon Valley, Wis. Since then, most of the highly erodible land (HEL) eventually had some contour strips with hay in the crop rotation. The goal was to reduce erosion and conserve the soil....

Country Pastor column: Reclaiming evangelicalism
Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and said, "Athenians, I see how extremely religious you are in every way. For as I went through the city and looked carefully at the objects of your worship, I found among them an altar with the inscription, 'To an unknown god.' What therefore...

Ellsworth Library Notes: Spring is here, but we're thinking about summer!
With spring having barely made an appearance, it's hard to believe that summer is just around the corner. Library staff have been working on plans for a fun summer library program for all ages. Elise is promoting the youth program with performers at Ellsworth Elementary and St. Francis...

Country Pastor column: God is your Good Shepherd
I can't count the number of times I've watched a movie and the extras are all dressed in black while the pastor/priest reads "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death..." [Psalm 23:4, KJV]. So there tends to be a tendency to think of Psalm 23 as the "death psalm."...

Literally Lorna column: Which pump should I choose?
When I recently pulled into Kwik Trip to fill my tank, I noticed the middle octane (88) was cheaper by 5 cents than the 87 octane I usually use. What the? I literally paused and didn't know what to do. I'm your average "I can do it" kind of gal, but I knew putting the wrong fuel...

Country Pastor: The mercy seat
There are some moments that glimmer like gold. I remember a discussion with my tutors in college and the air around us seemed to shine as we talked. Where do these moments come from? In the Bible we learn of the the "mercy seat." The mercy seat was the cover of the ark of the covenant....

Sarah Nigbor column: Finding my roots, and Finnish ones at that

"Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb." John 20:1 Even though Easter has come and gone we are still in the Easter Season of the church year. When Jesus rose from the dead,...
