It doesnt get much better than this: A gourmet dinner cooked by the master chef himself, Jeff Tiedeman, brought to our home in a fancy Dutch oven and served to us at our very own dining room table... Posted on 5/8/13 at 5:02 PM
This “Vegetable” Lasagna is the best recipe that has ever crossed my path. No other lasagna I’ve made sets up like this one. My family eats meat, so I cheat in this recipe and add hamburger of the buffalo variety — raised by my nephew, Mike, in north central North Dakota.
Sean Patterson stepped into the emcee’s shoes when his church, Grace Baptist in Grand Forks, served as a viewing site for the “Stepping Up” simulcast. Thousands of men across the country watched it the day before the Super Bowl.
Sometimes having to wait is annoying, but it recently paid off in a big way for me. I had time to reflect on someone’s words of wisdom which left me clothed in peace and reassurance. Both of which I needed.
Never will she leave — permanently. Never will she forsake — her people — her mother country. It is for them that Eunita Odongo is temporarily away, learning in the United States what she can do — with her heart and hands — to improve the lives of people in her beloved Kenya.
Even at the ripe young age of 7, the Rev. Bob Ludwig was dead serious about his piano lesson. So much so that he rolled out of bed to practice every morning from 6:30 to 7:30 before the school bus came to his country home near Culver, Ind.
The memory is as clear to me as if it’s happening as we speak. The door opens and in walks someone who brightens my day like a beacon in the night. She has come from her upstairs classroom to wrap an arm around me and assure me that all is well. She is my one and only sister!

For starters, I asked my grandchildren, Elyn and Ethan, if they knew the meaning of the word “multitude?” Two little heads shook from side to side.
Ethan just completed first grade and Elyn third. I guess those words are yet to come for them.
Crookston man finds his biological family at age 60 Anyone who knows John Reitmeier knows he’s never lost for words. Otherwise known as the Cool Site Pick of the Day guy for 1310 KNOX radio, Reitmeier has quick and witty comebacks for everything, stemming from many years in radio.
But on the evening of April 13, John was somewhat subdued as we neared a white house with a full-width front porch situated on a flower laden street in Charles Town. When John spoke it was softly.
