I love shopping at Kowalski's. Mr. and Mrs. Kowalski have created a shopping environment withRead More excellent products and great responsiveness to their cusstomers' needs. I'm sad to read about this, my condolences to the Kowalski family during this difficult time.

He was also a big part of the old local Red Owl and Country Store foods chains. I had worked at theRead More Country Store in Maplewood, and I remember him as a very nice person. What a tragedy. My heart goes out to the Kowalski family and the many who called him friend.

Just saw this on the B-52 Burgers & Brew Facebook page: Thanks to all the generous friends andRead More family of one of the great human beings that have ever touched our lucky souls, B-52 staff was able to raise $4200 for Jesse's family. We never thought we would be able to reach that much money on such short notice. It shows just how loved this man was by everyone! Stay tuned for our big benefit that will be coming soon! Once we have a date, we will let you all know when it will be. The B-52 staff greatly appreciates all the donations we received last night. We will love and miss you Jesse!!

Kristen, I found this because my husband is dying from ALS also. He was diagnosed 01/2010. He isRead More 44 and we have 3 young kids. I watched the video. It's brilliant! I tried to get my husband to leave a similar legacy, but it was too painful for him. You had a Love Warrior as a husband! Kristen, I will keep you, Eva and Miranda in my prayers and I wish you love and light forward!

I worked with Glen at Revenue. He and I bantered whenever we encountered each other. Glen wouldRead More always hold up his fist to meet mine and call me brother. He was one of the nicest and most genuine people I knew. I feel very privileged to have known Glen. I will miss him.
Kris Janisch February 2, 2013 at 01:05 pm
I only met him once Matthew, but I thought the same thing.

I was on the board when the Christian Cupboard was founded and worked with both Dick and Sharon offRead More and on for years. Dick always had a warm smile and had a genuine concern for all the individuals that passed through the doors of the Christian Cupboard. When the scouts had their big food drives, Dick was right there bright and early with loads of encouragement and big thanks to the scouts. Both he and Sharon were a joy to work with! Dick, you played your part well, rest in peace: Matthew 25:23 "Well done, good and faithful servant!"

I have two kids at WHS and they both had Mr. Sommer. He was their favorite teacher and they wereRead More devastated when he passed away. The school was having a tough time replacing him but that is because he can't be replaced. He loved his students and they knew it and loved him too. Mr. Sommer is missed every day at WHS.
Kris Janisch February 7, 2013 at 08:01 pm
Thanks Parent.
Kris Janisch May 3, 2013 at 01:30 pm
Just saw this from the Woodbury High School announcements today: So many things continue to remindRead More us about Senior Sommer this year. And here’s another: The Andy Sommer Spanish Studies Scholarship has been established for graduating seniors THIS YEAR. This scholarship has been established to financially assist students who plan on pursuing Spanish Studies after high school. If you are interested in applying for this scholarship, applications are available from Ms. Bandholz in the counseling office.

What a jolly picture of a lovely man. Condolences to Mr. Roger's entire family and especially to hisRead More wife, Ms. Laura. We can only hope to grow old like this couple, to be loved by someone, like they truly did for one another. They seem to thoroughly enjoy each other so much. My hope for this great loss is peace of mind for the family, and less grief as time goes by...

Oh my god!!! I didn't believe anyone till I saw it on web... Mickey is my sons godfather... My sonRead More was born 4 July 1992.... Who else but our American cousin to be his godfather.... And his Harley was 1992 make....ironic.... REST IN PEACE MICKEY.... We will always love you... Joanne and boys!!!

It's been almost two years...and I still can't believe it. What a man of God. Sure influenced myRead More life in the short time I knew him. Walking with your Lord Frank walking with your Lord.

AHS does not receive taxpayer money. They are a non-profit that does not receive any govermentRead More funding. The 5 day holding period mentioned only applies to stray cats and does not apply here. To create additional legal holds would be an issue for people to take to their elected officials.
Susan January 4, 2012 at 01:39 pm
rfos- it wasn't the daughters decision to make, and the AHS should have known this. Just becauseRead More there is a "next of kin" does not give someone legal rights. The law is very clear that pets are clasified as property and as such AHS should have asked the daughter who the administrator of the estate was. Had they done this Jimmy would still be alive.
Mike Fry January 4, 2012 at 02:36 pm
Right, Susan. And, ironically, the daughter says she never requested Jimmy be put down. It is alsoRead More interesting that on one hand AHS is saying Jimmy was "stray". Then, they say he was not stray... If even the most basic rules or procedures had been followed, Jimmy would be alive.

We've had screen items (tv, computer, wii, etc) be treat and earned activities. Meals have alwaysRead More had a selection of healthy options and we look at a week, not a meal alone for balance. Now, my six year old asks if something is healthy and quite often the dessert in his lunch comes home because he chose not to eat it. He also wants to be outside running as much as possible. Hopefully it will work as well with his sister (and maybe even his parents) one day and be patterns that stick.
Tonya Holt | Primrose School of Woodbury June 16, 2011 at 01:09 am
Physical fitness for our children is a priority (along with a healthy diet). Like most children, ourRead More kids love to do whatever we do, so we try to lead by example, getting at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. I realized my kids would participate in more physical activity if I did. Soon my kids were riding their bikes with me while I took a daily walk, and encouraging me to jog! Now, we walk together, ride bike, play catch, or simply garden together. At Primrose School of Woodbury my children participate in a structured physical fitness program where they engage in games, activities and exercise all designed to get their hearts pumping and engage them in physical fitness and create a positive self-image. You can read about the program on the website http://www.primroseschools.com/Schools/Highlights/HighlightDetail.aspx?schoolID=233&HighlightID=16783
Kim Wolfe June 17, 2011 at 12:05 pm
Be the example! My kids live in a different world from the one I grew up in. We didn't have cable,Read More microwaves and all of the ready to eat foods that are available today. We played outside with large groups of kids who went to the same schools. These days our kids are sent to charter schools and choice programs which remove them from their neighborhood social group. As a result, we transport them to their playdates and activities much more than our parents did. This new lifestyle makes schedules tighter and free time more limited. This new lifestyle also lends itself to grabbing food on the go. It is up to me to be the example, to get up and move, to make the right food choices, etc. My kids rarely see me watching tv. Also, I limit fast food and soda, 2 of the culprits contributing to obesity in our society. I expose my kids to the pleasures of my childhood to get them moving, i.e., pogo stick, stilts, frisbee, badminton, baseball, rollerskating (quads versus blades), etc. They think it's way cool!
