Prime Time: Evan Hazard: Playing ecclesiastical hooky Sunday morning
The Bemidji United Methodist (BUMC) bulletin for Dec. 23, 2012, said Pastor Gay would be on vacation Dec. 30, and announced a substitute preacher for that Sunday. However, it occurred to me that a favorite theolog, Linnea Papke-Larson, was an associate pastor at First Lutheran (FLC),...

Prime Time | Art Lee: What's in a name? Well ... it depends
A Bemidji area audience was wonderfully entertained a few weeks ago by a well-known Minnesota vocalist named Prudence Johnson who, with her piano accompanist, put on an excellent two-hour show at the high school auditorium, the show titled “Tiptoe Through The Sixties.” The program...

Prime Time | Ann Daley: The life and times of John Buhn
I’m guessing that many of you who read this story will have visited the Inn at Maple Crossing at one time or another. If you haven’t, and you want to take a ride sometime, it’s easy to find. Just take U.S. Highway 2 west to Mentor. Take a left at the Dairy Queen, go two miles...

Prime Time | Evan Hazard: You thought she had only one?
During my mid-December trip to the clinic in St. Paul, Stuart and Carol had company in their Minneapolis place, so I stayed at Natalie’s. She had planned a cross-country skiing weekend in the Arrowhead with Ely friends, and the weather cooperated. Since she was to leave early Friday,...

Prime Time | Marilyn Heltzer: The iPad, iPod and iPhone are far from Grandma Ida’s reality
You recall my column in last month’s Prime Time, don’t you? Of course you do. Then again, maybe not. As we age, our minds get more and more cluttered: people, places, stories, even recipes and directions on How to Get There. But you may (or may not) recall that one of the items...

Prime Time | Sue Bruns: Forgetting people’s names – it happens to all of us
“Hi! How ARE you? I haven’t seen you in AGES!” Conversations that open like this make me fearful. Sometimes they lead to fond reunions with people I haven’t seen in a long time; but other times, I find myself responding mentally and verbally in completely different ways. My...

Prime Time | Marilyn Heltzer: Playing the list game
“I’m in dispersal, not acquisition.” I say this often as I explain why I’m giving away things that were once treasures. It comes with age. After all those years of coveting and acquiring, I have enough stuff. And little by little, I’m getting rid of it. And now comes the...

Prime Time | Alice Collins: A new experience for Christmas
It will be a different holiday season for us this year. Since last Christmas we have moved from our Grant Lake home of more than 40 years to an assisted living apartment at WindSong. There are plans for holiday celebrations here that we will enjoy, but it will be different from any...

Prime Time | Muriel Keaveny: The country stays in the girl who left
You can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl. How true. I couldn’t wait to get to the big city when I was 18, and I loved the bright lights for many years. However, things change. Seventeen years ago when I retired and moved to Bemidji...

Prime Time | Sue Bruns: The snowman that never was
The sun breaks through the winter clouds making the fresh snow gleam. I test the texture. Sticky. Good day to build a snowman. I roll up a huge snowball until I can’t push it any farther. That’s where my snowman will stand. I add a midsection snowball and a snowball head, top...

Prime Time | Jeb Monge: Walking is enjoyable transportation
Growing up in the 1940s and ’50s meant walking. There were not that many cars due to World War II where the metal and oil were needed. So I grew up walking everywhere: school, downtown, church, etc. If the soldiers were called the Greatest Generation, I suppose the rest of us would...

Prime Time | Art Lee: The usual and unusual at a homecoming parade
Homecoming. Even the word by itself evokes the feelings of fun, happiness and surprises, and certainly nostalgia — like greeting old friends, eyeing old teachers, visiting old haunts. It’s an especially wonderful event for those returning alumni who come back to the campus they...

Prime Time | Evan Hazard: Everyone pulled out all the stops
Last month, I left you hanging, mentioning a “groom’s dinner.” What groom’s dinner? In early 2011, Stuart’s daughter Anna, a junior at the University of Minnesota, met Sam Caldis, a senior. They hit it off, and Carol told me last spring to save a date, Saturday, Aug. 18....
