Arts Minded column: Coming together as 'Crokicurl'
Flying back home to ice and snow country, I dug into a story in the January 2018 issue of Delta Sky. Ordinarily I might not pay it much mind, but an article titled "Right on the Button" referenced my home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. My interest was peaked. You may ask what's...

Sarah Nigbor column: The circle of life
It's been awhile since I wrote a column, and one of my resolutions in the new year is to connect with our readers more, now that I have my feet under me a bit more solidly since becoming regional editor (at least I think I do!) One way of doing that is helping people get to know...

Woodworking column: They don't write obits like this, anymore
My late mother had a fine friend in Evangeline Vold, who watched over me after my mother died when I was a kid. She wasn't my godmother, but you might have thought so by the way she kept in touch until the day she died, showering my wife and me with gifts, like her ten-volume piano...

Arts Minded column: Iris Apfel — inspiration to anyone of any age
As I contemplated my wardrobe choices for a fancy, black tie New Year's party last week, I was reminded of a documentary film about a woman whose life is a serious work of art. If you are unaware of the nonagenarian, Iris Apfel, you are missing out on someone whose free flowing vision...

Woodworking column: Bringing movie magic
When I was growing up in a little town back in the 40s, the new Pix movie theatre became the cultural center of my little universe. My cousin Bill and I lived with my grandparents and, fortunately, they knew we needed more than a meal and roof over our heads, so they shelled out...
