Marilyn Heltzer: Brrr. I can’t believe how cold it is
It’s what we say these days. And being we’re on the verge of winter, let’s talk about the favorite topic of Minnesotans: the weather. More specifically, climate change. It’s not an idea that folks who meet regularly for coffee discuss. We tend to hang with people who...

Marilyn Heltzer: Fall time is best time of year for me
What could be more lovely than Minnesota in the fall? Many of us, including me, claim this season as our favorite. Then there are the folks who head south or west sometime after Christmas. They say it’s OK to miss Minnesota winters with the cold and snow and ice. And we, the...

Marilyn Heltzer: Stars of the garden
Cucumbers, cabbage, and carrots are the stars of my garden this year. While I admire folks who can, my "putting up for the winter ahead" is aimed at filling my freezer. Or, in the case of the cucumbers, filling the fridge. Memories of my past life in St. Louis Park, Minn., come to...

Marilyn Heltzer: A hair-straightening realization years in the making
Let’s talk about hair. Long, straight hair. All of the young women newscasters on TV have it, and mostly they’re blondes. But there are a few brunettes. Now, I’m not an avid TV watcher, but when I flick through the news channels, there they are: Young. Beauitiful. And straight-haired....

Marilyn Heltzer: Your vehicle says a lot about you, so remember you are what you drive
My next car is going to be bright yellow. I’ll be able to spot it in the parking lot at the grocery store and according to a Dutch study (there’s always a study), yellow cars are stolen less often than cars of any other color. The police can spot them as soon as the theft report...
