Notes from Steve

My nephews were dressed in lederhosen for the first annual Octoberfest at Timbukbru this past weekend. They were working the festival at the local brewery as well as participating in the Polka and the chicken dances. Octoberfest at Timbukbru, this is a good thing for our little town - it...

Notes from Steve

“Be careful what you put in your mind” my dad used to say. He was talking about introducing negative or mean or bad thoughts to your mind - because our wonderful and amazing brains have the ability to obsess and fret. It’s a fact (at least in my life) that...

Thoughts from Holly

Yesterday our new Nutrition Services Director for ISH came to meet the staff. Suffice it to say prior to the meeting there was a lot of angst and fear of what he would be like and if he even existed. I feel after both meetings in Belmond and Clarion, the...

Notes from Steve

Holly and I were going back and forth from my office area to our then department, “Adult Day Care” (it’s where Accounts Payable is now) to watch the TV as the towers were going down. I remember it clearly. I remember calling my mom - who was battling cancer at...

A Word from Cindy

Where did the summer go? As the Iowa State Fair winds down, vacations come to an end, and school begins, I think about how quickly summer seemed to fly by. In our family our summers are spent participating in Farmers Markets, going to county and state fairs and trying to...

Notes from Steve

There’s this “calming” thing on my watch where I need to take deep breaths and settle myself. I’m supposed to keep the green background and stars flying - according to the watch. I failed. I almost hyperventilated breathing deep. It’s like golf for me - the most stressed I ever...
