Things Are Always Changing

Personally, I go back and forth with the idea of change. The world and society is ever evolving. Everyday we choose to either go with it or try and "change" it back to the way it was. My first thought that I've been struggling with lately is the upcoming election. I want to bring it to ...

What’s For Dinner?

Do you go out to eat? I do! Proably a little more often then I should, but I tell myself I"m helping support the community! Ha! Plus, I love being out and about seeing people and catching the "news!"As much as I enjoy going out, I love to cook! For me they go hand in hand, because it's great to ...

Awestruck By Our Community

If you don't know me, I have tendency to be passionate about a number of things and to be honest pretty sentimental. I've been thinking this week on how amazing our community is and how we seriously come together when needed. It seriously makes my heart sing and smile until I feel like I'm ...

It’s About Property Values, Not Taxes

I was a little shocked at the property assessment meeting that took place Tuesday evening. First, I've heard some squabbles around town about the assessments; however, in a community of just shy of 3,000 only a couple dozen people show up! As was stated in the meeting if it be regarding the ...

Here Comes The…

I knew living in a small town that word travels quickly, but I learned it first hand how fast news really travels! I am so grateful for life. I never knew in a million years that moving back to Rugby would be as blissful as it has been. For starters I have always enjoyed the newspaper industry, ...

Let the Sun Shine

It seems ironic that at this month's City Council meeting Monday, March 7th, the council considered approval of the proposed City ballot measure: Shall the City of Rugby publish the minutes of its meetings in the official city newspaper for the next four years?It's ironic because it happens to ...

Say You’re Sorry

Why is it that many people say, "I'm sorry" all the time? I catch myself doing it from time to time, throughout the day. And I hear it from others constantly. It almost seems to be the new norm to be accepted.What are our brains telling us by constantly saying "sorry". I don't necessarily mean ...

Be Informed

As the paper is quickly filling up, that does not leave much space for me to write, which is ok!On a serious note, I am glad to see that people are taking the time to write in about issues and expressing their concerns in either direction they may be. I ask you to be informed about what is ...

Let’s Build Our Future

I've been back to Rugby now two years. It honestly seems like I never left. I can not say enough how friendly the community is and welcoming. I'm not sure if this is the case for outsiders, but I hope it is!One large difference I see is in businesses. Rugby is kind of in the middle when it ...

Let’s Stay In Touch

What happened to the good old written-by-hand postal letter, like we used to get in the old days?I'm talking the friendly fun letters that kept you informed of what was going on in someone's world. The letters that started with, "Hey Old Friend," or "Hi Sister". Then always led to, "I miss ...
