Couple glad to say “I Do” again


Angela Reed and her husband, Aaron, celebrated 13 years of marriage with the storybook wedding they never had.

At age 18, a young woman was working in Des Moines as a page for the Legislative Service Bureau. She was only months away from her high school graduation. After developing a comfort level with her superiors, her assistant supervisor decided to introduce her to a young man who was stationed in Great Lakes, Illinois as a United States Navy SeaBee. This young man was stationed with her assistant supervisor’s fiance. After a trip to the Senate, she returned to the office only to find her assistant supervisor handing her the phone. On the other end was a young man offering his name and information he had been told about her.

Glawes honored as Century Farm

Nestled in a lush valley at the end of a steeply meandering road sits one of Clayton County’s most beautiful farms. Owned for 100 years by the Glawe family, the farm, which is located just off Highway 13 a bit north of Elkader, could’ve been inspiration for a Grant Wood painting: well groomed yards, gently rolling fields, and pristine barns and sheds.

All about apples

 

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” is more than a cliché: It’s sound nutrition advice. Apples are a low-calorie snack that’s high in fiber and vitamin C. In addition, preliminary research indicates that apples may help to reduce the risk of colon, prostate and lung cancer.
