Notes from Steve

I’ve been listening to jazz lately. I’m not a huge fan of unstructured* jazz, but right now it’s meeting my needs. I played guitar in the high school jazz band, and we used to go to contest at Eppley Auditorium on the campus of Morningside College. It was a very...

Notes from Steve

Inflation seems to be the topic of the moment. Gas prices are extreme; food prices and everything else seems to be going up. I see posts on Facebook comparing our current gas prices to prices in late 2020. Personally, I don’t think any comparison to anything that happened in the...

The Brief by Reagan

Spring feels like it is upon us. As I write this article, it’s about 68F outside and I’m wishing I was out there instead of sitting in my office. This week the kids are ready to be done with school and spring break is not coming fast enough. Every morning...

Amy's Reflections

I can’t do it all! There, I said it, and I own it. I have been trying to split myself a million ways lately, and I have had to learn the very hard lesson of saying, “no, I just can’t make it work in my life right now.” I know...
