Where do you work and what do you love most about your job? Red Wing Arts Association. I love being surrounded by so much creative spirit! What's your favorite spot in Red Wing? Share what makes it special. The Depot, of course! Beautiful art and the river right outside. I love the trains, too. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Morning person, definitely. Love my morning coffee. What's your favorite local tradition or event?
The recent article about "Affordable housing in short supply" was, unintentionally, humorous. Two years ago, my wife and I moved from the Twin Cities to Red Wing, partially because we found a home here considerably cheaper than anything comparable in the Twin Cities. The couple who found it "near-impossible to buy an affordable home in the city, much less one under $300,000," need a reality check.
The Hedin-Hartnagel Memorial Fund celebrates its 60th year this spring, offering an excellent opportunity to honor its efforts to support the post-secondary pursuits of over 1,000 Red Wing High School graduates over the years.
Where do you work and what do you love most about your job? I work part time at Red Wing Ignite as a program coordinator. It's a pleasure to be part of a team with Neela Mollgaard and making an impact on the community in small, yet significant ways. My position provides me with a great deal of flexibility so for the rest of my time I am able to do interior design, marketing and social media consulting and gift show sales. What's your favorite food (if it's made locally, all the better) book or movie?
Where do you work and what do you love most about your job? Goodhue County Health & Human Services. I like the variety of things I do and all of the people I work with for the prevention and control of communicable diseases. There's always something new happening and no day is the same. What's your favorite spot in Goodhue County? Share what makes it special. My favorite place is the Mississippi River. I like boating, watching the barges, paddleboats, eagles, and the changing seasons.
Qualities that are at the heart of any Cinderella tale — kindness and consideration of others — play an important role in "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters: an African Tale," which will be staged March 31 at the Sheldon Theatre.
The Beach Boys or the Bee Gees? Madonna or Donna Summer? Regardless of which musical era you enjoyed growing up, the Friends of the Sheldon promise there will be dancing music for you at the first Adult Prom, April 1 at the Sheldon Theatre. A fundraiser for Red Wing's historic theater, the Adult Prom will have a professional DJ playing music of the past half-century, according to Anna Ostendorf, Friends board member and prom chairman.
As we hear about federal budget proposals, I'd like to let the community know how a 14 percent reduction in the federal education funding will impact our children's programming and adult basic education. In straight dollars.
Viewpoint: Minnesota House District 21B President Donald Trump made a campaign promise to "drain the swamp" and eliminate the putrid sludge and corruption that infests our federal government. With that in mind, I am championing a series of bills that attempt to drain Minnesota's swamp and eliminate wasteful spending and welfare for politicians.
Where do you work and what do you love most about your job? I am a social worker on the Public Health side of Health and Human Services. I work with adults with disabilities. What I love most about my job are the incredible people I have had the privilege of meeting over the years. My job has taught me that everyone will struggle at some point in their life, so it is important to be kind to each other.
