There is nothing more welcoming than going home after your first day at a job that requires typing as main function than to cut your fingertip. I managed to accidentally cut myself Wednesday evening while removing a knife in a cardboard sheath from a new box of kitchen knives. I can vouch that the...
They say the world is becoming more modern all the time and technology will make things more convenient. Oh really? Wednesday, a trip to the University of Minnesota for a state swimming meet. While driving to the ‘U’ is no big deal, a byproduct of growing up in St. Paul, there is always some...
At the Monday, October 24 school board meeting, there were comments made during the open-forum regarding the district’s equity training that, as the superintendent, I would like to respond to. I would publicly like to explain the facts around equity and training for our teachers. The word “equity”...
As a high school freshman growing up in St. Paul during the mid- to late-1970s, New Prague was one of those far-away towns in Minnesota, a small city on the map we’d never heard of thanks in part to our provincial view of the world. Back then, a trip anyplace south of Interstate Highway 494 and...
We’re rookies. It’s obvious that my husband, John, and I need to step-up our game now that both of our daughters, Anna and Ellen, are active in school sports. Our 8th grader plays tennis.

The crew of eight includes: my husband, two daughters, parents, brother, sister-inlaw, and myself. We’ve been in the same cabin for 10 of the years. Everyone knows which bed they will be in...
Of all the different articles and subjects I write about each week, composing a personal column is always the hardest. Telling the world about my everyday experiences in an amusing and relevant way is the worst form of writer’s block. I’m guessing that in the 22 years I’ve been the editor of the...
In the last few months I’ve had a few people say to me that I’ve been at The New Prague Times forever. While it hasn’t been that long, this Friday, Aug. 19, I do mark 23 years at the newspaper. I arrived in 1999, just before Dozinky, the community’s Czech harvest festival. I was amazed at how many...
I went to the refrigerator to grab the carrots, but I found a stew of stinky old, rotten vegetable goo in the bottom of the crisper drawer. After emptying the drawer, discarding the bad produce, and washing the good veggies, I opened the under-the-sink cabinet to grab the cleaner to clean the...
