This past weekend my father celebrated 60 years of being alive. Friends and family gathered to join the celebration, which was fun. I was told about the party a few weeks in advance, and I have been thinking about life this whole time.
“Catch and release” has become an important phrase in the fishing world.
Some movies are so much fun to not just passively watch, but to analyze their portrayals of our culture’s oddities. The main character Buddy in the movie Elf takes every single thing so literally, like a small child. An advertising sign in a coffee shop’s window claiming, “World’s Best Cup of Coffee” compels him to go into the store, beaming, authentically congratulating each store employee for this massive feat: “You did it!!” Buddy’s behavior is in stark contrast to everyone else, who simply walk on by without giving it a second thought. They are already accustomed to being told not-quite-truths, completely desensitized, merely walking through life without paying notice to so many types of lies. However, Buddy vigilantly and remarkably remains hyper alert, always aware of all that is going on around him.

The colder it gets outside this winter season, the more people will turn up the heater. We often forget that besides the refrigerator, our heater/AC, aka HVAC is one of the most crucial machines in our homes we need to keep our lives going comfortably. Until the heater stops working… heaven forbid that were to happen, but if so, who should you turn to?

Q: What is the most challenging part of your job?
On December 16 the Webster County Sheriff’s Department notified the public of a missing woman, Prem Kuar Prasad, a 65 year old Indian woman.
If you have a senior family member or an adult family member with a disability, it will come as no surprise that there is a house shortage for that population. Wait lists can be up to two years long for some housing centers. For Marshfield, that crisis will soon be less extensive.
