Well here we are: - Volume 3 Issue 6
Wie geht es dir?
My son Ben and I are heading to Park Falls - long weekend at the shack - opening weekend of deer season. I’ve been seeing a nice little six pointer hangin’ in the neighborhood the last few days – somebody will be chasing him - we’ll go north. Going to make a nice batch of chili to take along - that always goes good. Did I mention Ben took first place at his workplace chili “cook off” – he used my recipe, gave it a little personality and won by a single vote! See, every vote counts and that’s as political as I’m going to get for now…
Bob Frankenstein’s article on the 32nd (Red Arrow) Division provides an excellent account from a very local perspective. I still remember riding aboard that Greyhound bus with my mom – all the way to Fort Lewis to visit my dad. Many neighbors still recall those frightening times. Remember President Ronald Reagan’s speech delivered at the Brandenburg Gate? “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” … 25 years ago - November 9, 1989 the Berlin Wall finally fell…
We’re changing up the routine a little - going forward Erik and I will share this space to make room for more community content. This is your magazine – you don’t need to hear so much from us… Cheers!
And from Erik: Our perspective is shaped by what occupies our minds. I don’t read or listen to the news in traditional media. Mainly because it just makes me sad. I think far too much credit and publicity is given to all the bad things going on in the community. There is plenty of good news to celebrate that deserves the spotlight of the front page.
The Beaver’s caretakers on Park Avenue are a great example of people making a difference in their own unique way. Driving by always lifts my spirits no matter what mood I am in. We should all find a way to contribute in our own unique way. If a Beaver on a tree stump can – can’t we all?
The holidays are here and I cannot think of a better time to share with you what we have been working on for a few months. Fred The Beavercorn! Enjoy a sneak preview on Page 14. We will be taking pre-orders soon. If you would like to be notified when the book will be available, sign up on LocaLeben.com
