Golf honor comes with a price

Jim Pettit, 69, of Granville enjoys the game of golf and recently enjoyed the role of honorary observer at a PGA event. But it didn’t come without a price. An observer walks on the golf course during a round with professional golfers. In Pettit’s case, it was tour professionals Fred Funk and Bernard Langer on June 21 at the Encompass Championship in Glenview. He first met the two legends just before it was time to tee off.

After 52 years of marriage, it's still about respect and love
It is hard to believe that this month, “The Farmer” and I celebrate 52 years of marriage. That is a long time, but there are many who have been married longer. We are often asked what makes a successful marriage? I always answer “respect.” If you don’t respect the person you share your life with, it can make for a miserable time.

Kids idolize this Henry music man
Robert Eckert readily admits he can’t walk the streets of Henry without being approached by his rabid fan base. And that’s perfectly fine with him. Eckert, who has been teaching music for a total of 37 years, has been in the Henry school district since 1989. The grade school children he teaches yell his name when they see him in town and run up to him with all their youthful enthusiasm.

Prills spooked by crash
I was standing in my Italian garden just outside the back door making plans with “My Girl Tuesday,” who helps with the housework twice a month. She was saying she would be happy to take Mandy Dog if we decided to go. I was telling her that I was sure we would be invited, but we hadn’t received the invitation yet. With that, “The Farmer” appeared, waving an envelope which he had just taken out of the mailbox.

Oh what a beautiful day!
For the first time in two years, since I got this dreaded diabetes, I slept all night. I went to bed at nine after a cup of ice cream to ward off middle-of-the-night hunger. I went with my nightly ice pack. Yes, I’m addicted to sleeping with an ice pack on my “hypothalamus.” Because of that nightly procedure, the night sweats are gone.

Gone fishin'
Nestled along the banks of the Hennepin Canal are several places that area fisherman like to call hitting the jackpot. These places are sometimes so obvious that the average person may feel dumbfounded. These places are, oftentimes, vastly underutilized according to one avid fisherman and owner of Canal Area Tackle Shop (CATS) Tom Yourek.

What's in a lunch?
I’d like to send this column to First Lady Michelle Obama concerning her thoughts and plans and “fight” with the “House Republican effort to soften a central part of her prized anti-childhood obesity campaign. She says she’s ready ‘to fight until the bitter end’,” according to an AP story out of Washington. Mrs. Obama, your efforts are commendable, but you are barking up the wrong tree.

Commercial School meant business

In the mid-1900s, La Salle-Peru-Oglesby businesses looking for a secretary ready to work with minimal training needed would look no further than St. Joseph’s Commercial School, Peru. But 60 years ago this week, the NewsTribune opinion page carried an editorial, “A Tri-City Asset Goes.” That’s because 1954 was the year St. Joseph’s Parish decided to close the two-year business school that had produced a steady stream of 16- and 17-year-old graduates who were trained to thrive in business offices.
