Last week, I took my daughter, niece and nephew to see 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman.' I thought the kids would enjoy it, even if I didn't. I was therefore surprised at how much I enjoyed this fun family film. The backstory of the film is that Mr. Peabody, a dog, was never adopted from the animal shelter and instead works hard to educate himself, becoming one of the smartest beings on Earth, and adopts Sherman as a baby when a judge says, "if a boy can adopt a dog, I see no reason why a dog can't adopt a boy."

As most of you know, I have three African-American children through adoption. My ex-husband and I both grew up in liberal communities and our family has been blessed with very little racism in regards to our children. We have lived in communities where no one blinks an eye at seeing two white parents with three black children. Although it is rare, perhaps it is because of this that it is always so surprising to me when someone in makes a racist comment towards one of my kids. This is a relatively new experience for us since moving from Alaska to Minnesota.
Congratulations to Mark Johnson of Wadena, who correctly identified the location of the mystery photo as the cornerstone at the mausoleum at the Wadena cemetery. Mark won two $10 certificates...

The position, held by Cory Carr, was cut by the previous council in December due to budget concerns.

I have been a Seahawks fan since I was a little girl. I grew up just outside of Seattle surrounded by wilderness. One of the highlights of my childhood was going to a Seahawks game with my dad. He would take each of us kids to a game and I always looked forward to spending time with my dad, no siblings in sight, at the Kingdome. We would listen to the oldie's station all the way in and walk what seemed like miles from the car to the Kingdom. My dad would always buy me a program, a huge tub of popcorn and a drink.
