Anyone who has seen the police drama “Hill Street Blues” will remember that usually one of the first scenes of each episode was a sergeant giving a duty list to a room full of police officers, plus other information that would show up later in the episode. At the end he would remind his officers, “...
For the past 11 years, my family has rented a cabin at Boyd Lodge near Cross Lake for one week every summer. 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...

It’s the quietest week of the year—at least, at my house. Our 10-year-old Ellen is off having the time of her life at summer camp. She looks forward to the week-long adventure all year. Not 10 minutes after I picked her up from Camp Omega last year, she spouted: “Mom, it’s the BEST place ever. I...
Sports fans or alumni of Ohio State University likely heard in the last week that the university has been successful in trademarking “The” when referring to the college. For anyone that doesn’t know beginning around three decades ago Ohio State started a campaign to make it stand out by referring...
The subject of this column might be a little late, but the message is still as relevant as ever. In the United States history, many groups have not been treated the same (women, blacks).
