Community Corner

Community Corner by Shelby Hulstein
On January 2nd, I realized I had yet to pick my 2021 word (I usually spend the days after Christmas working on this). In past years, my word came to me fairly quickly, but I found myself needing a little more stillness this time around to quiet the extra noise and focus. I read through my current...

  As the great Rambo once said, “I’ve always believed that the mind is the best weapon.” What an incredibly different world we’d be living in if more of us shared this belief. Instead, we’ve become robotic in our daily scrollings through social media, cluelessly jump on political and social...

  It makes me genuinely sad that so many people are itching for 2020 to be over and done with. While I admit the year has been a rough one, this doesn’t mean it was a complete waste, nor will our problems end at the stroke of midnight. Every single day is a gift, and it’s a shame we’ve wasted so...

  At 25 years old, I still get giddy every Christmas Eve. When I was little, I’d put on my Christmas pajamas, mix up a mug of hot cocoa with a candy cane, and watch “White Christmas” or “It’s a Wonderful Life” with my family until it was time to go to bed. I’d beg to camp out in a sleeping bag in...

  As shoppers rush home with their treasures, stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and classic Christmas movies play on repeat, these final few weeks before Dec. 25 seem to hold a deeper meaning than past years. We’ve been through a lot in 2020, to say the least. Whether we agree or not on...

  One of the many reasons why I love Christmas is how people treat each other during the season. There are more smiles and greetings shared, patience and grace are extended a little faster than usual, and there’s an overall sense of festive joy. Though this year has not been easy, I’ve already...

  Decorate the tree! Drink all the hot cocoa! Wear the matching flannel pajamas with your family! Play those Bing Crosby and Michael Bublé records on repeat – it’s Christmastime! As I bade farewell to my autumn decorations the day after Thanksgiving, I felt that childlike giddiness as I put up...

  “You are not essential.” This is the message the governor conveyed as he imposed his latest restrictions on Minnesota, which includes banning restaurants/bars/etc. from offering dine-in services altogether, closing down fitness and indoor entertainment centers, kid and adult sports, wedding...

  I think it’s safe to say that life has slowed way down for many of us. Work may still be busy, families still need to be tended to, but a good amount of the extra chatter in our lives (concerts, events, parties, etc.) has been quieter this year. With this extra time comes the perfect opportunity...

  I have something extremely controversial to say, and I know it’s going to get people fired up: the Christmas season does not begin until the day after Thanksgiving. There, I said it. Don’t deck the halls just yet, folks! We still have an important season and holiday to recognize and enjoy. With...
