Talking It Over -- Journalism careers
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Hancock English Teacher Nicole Schmidt. She asked me if I would be willing to speak to her Senior English Class about the field of journalism. Specifically what is involved in writing articles and such for the newspaper. I readily agreed and spent...

Talking It Over -- In the midst of a move
We are now in our new location and about 80 percent moved. However, I would say we are more like 50 percent set up and ready to go. It will take a little more time to get everything into a routine so I hope you will bear with us a bit when it comes to the next few weeks and issues...

Talking it over -- Hancock Record 9-24-09
As we prepare to make our move to the Morris office, Joyce and I have been busy sorting through cupboards, boxes, file cabinets and desk drawers trying to decide what needs to be kept and what can be discarded. It is astounding how quickly our garbage cans fill up as we finally throw...

Not an easy column to write
Change is not always welcome or even anticipated but sometimes is simply necessary. In the last 17 years of my working at the Hancock Record, we have seen many, many changes and with each one I have taken on a bold front and approached them with acceptance and hope. This latest change...

Talking it over -- Hancock Record 8-27-09
There seems to be a lot of give and take going on at this time of year. As garden plants begin to bear fruit and gardeners fill their freezers and cupboards, the excess is often spread among family, friends and neighbors. Farmers also get into the giving by sharing their extra sweet...

Talking it over -- Hancock Record 8-20-09
Another Stevens County Fair is over and while I am totally exhausted, I am also thrilled with the results from the weekend. I want to thank everyone who took the time to congratulate me on my 'big' cabbages and I really don't have any secret method of raising them to their over 30...

There are few things that make a person feel older than when you are asked to help compile a history 'because you can remember being there'. Over the last few months our Homemakers Club has been trying to compile a history. Since it is the 150th anniversary year for the Extension,...

Fun at the playground
Last week I had my first opportunity to get a close look at the new playground equipment at West Side Park. I had my granddaughter for a few hours and decided to entertain her at the park. She absolutely loved it. She was so excited when she saw where we were headed and immediately...

Talking it over -- Hancock Record 7-23-09
This last weekend my husband and I, along with another couple, took a drive up north. One of our goals was to take a look at a few resorts and lakes for a possible fall vacation. It was a fun and interesting day that left us almost more confused about where to go than we were when...

Talking it over -- A good country doctor
This area lost a wonderful man and good country doctor last week. Dr. O.A. Eide served this area for many years as a doctor and spent many of those years right here in Hancock. There are many people who have fond memories of him and his family and probably several who have reasons...
