Stargazing - by Eli Lutgens

Two of our readers had significant birthdays this week: Dolores Sommers and Helen Fowler. The Sommers family put a birthday notice in the paper last year when she turned 100 and did so again this year. That got me thinking. Deb Bently really enjoys the company of Helen Fowler each time they’ve...
I came down with a cold this week, so less “newsing” than usual. I only made it to one of the two Braves playoff games this weekend. I arrived late to the 5-4 loss to Blue Earth, a team we beat twice earlier in the season. Energy was down when I arrived, and unfortunately my presence alone was...
“It’s like Heaven.” That’s what Blaine Nelson told me after my latest Braves game.  I can officially call myself a baseball player now that I’ve notched my first inning in the field after 6 years away from the sport.  Blaine was right. It really is Heaven.  Or Iowa. To quote the famous...
I am sitting here writing this at the conclusion of Farm and City Days. It was another packed weekend. The car show included more cars than ever before. During the nightcap Saturday, I lost count of the number of people who commented about the band. By all accounts, it appears to have been a hit...
Celebrating the Fourth of July this year, I felt some noticeable absences. This was the first Fourth since my grandfather, Dean Richardson, passed away last August. He loved fireworks. He and my mother’s boyfriend would go all out for fireworks. Every year, it seemed, someone barely escaped with...
I only managed to make it to one Brave’s game this week. We won 8-7 over St. Louis Park. I believe they were state-level competitors or something big like that last year.  Chaz, the new guy, pitched the first 7 innings. For those of you who don’t know, Chaz (whose last name I can’t remember) is...
I have finally played in a Braves game. We won 10-3 over Eagle Lake Wednesday night. Kelvin pitched, but didn’t have his best stuff. And he was afflicted with “the old.”  Eagle Lake had their biggest threat in the first after a couple errors allowed them to load the bases. Kelvin kept it to one...
I have made my season debut in a Waseca Braves uniform–although I’m not sure it can be called a debut considering I haven’t played yet.  To be honest, the first couple practices and games I attended have served as a chance to brush off six years of rust. It wasn’t until this last game on Sunday...
It appears everyone has a Blair Nelson story. He had a way of making each person in his life feel special. That was reinforced Monday as I heard story after story before, during and after Blair’s funeral.  A story from Tenille about a Cubs game she attended with Blair was shared. It reminded me...
Like many folks, I enjoyed Waseca’s city wide garage sales this past weekend. The experience was delightful. When all was said and done I didn’t purchase many items but enjoyed the trip with friends.  Among our many stops was the Stensrud estate sale, where I ran into Sarah Born-Raetz. It seems...
