Clean up after yourself, get ice houses off and be careful on the ice
First, just a reminder that Monday, March 16, shelters need to be removed from the lakes north of Highways 10 and 34. It looks like most anglers took advantage of the nice weekend last weekend to get most of the houses off the lakes. There are still some shelters out, and for those...

Friday Matters: Everyday Supposed
Many of us are not fans of the words; “You’re not supposed to do that.” Hearing those words only makes us want to do what we’re told not to. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. I remember my friend Karen saying; “Today I went down the road that had a sign...

Too heavy by a half a glass of water
There are lots of ways to measure a heartbreak. Last year, for 9th grader Tanner Reetz, heartbreak was 3.2 ounces. Reetz was a Frazee, Minn., wrestler ranked No. 3 in Minnesota in the 120 pound division. He earned his way to the state tournament by outscoring or pinning one opponent...

Family vacations produce memories for a lifetime, but they can also teach kids great money lessons they’ll need as adults. Involving kids in planning family vacations not only helps them appreciate the overall benefits of travel, but offers an opportunity for even the youngest...

When you’re in a disagreement you usually have strong feelings about what you’re discussing. You want to win. I get it. I’ve been there. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. But gradually…and I mean at age 48….I’m getting closer to being more of an adult....

Ricotta can be eaten on its own, used in recipes
I am usually all about keeping things in the kitchen as easy and “real life-ready” as possible. Most of time, that involves buying some prepackaged foods and adding my own flair to it. However, this past weekend, I decided to do just the opposite. I decided I was going to...

Tuesday Matters: Everyday Sinners Club
God is love. God is holy. Sometimes we can get out of balance with both….too liberal in our definition of love or we become too legalistic in keeping God’s commands. Don’t miss the point; ABOVE ALL is God’s love. Hey this is Debbie Griffith of Everyday Matters. We think...

Monday Matters: Everyday It's Church
I’ve certainly complained about the church. Church, as most understand it, is a building we go to on Sunday mornings. The reality is we go to meet with others who are sinners, like me, to worship Christ. We complain about church because church is people and people can be super irritating...

The plain black raven is far removed from the ordinary
I just read a story about a little girl somewhere in England that receives little gifts from crows that she feeds daily handouts to. The crows evidently leave her (in kind perhaps?) with an array of objects. These objects range anywhere from tiny colorful trinkets that the crows manage...
