Community Corner

Community Corner by Shelby Hulstein
The events of 2020 and the beginning of this year caught up to me. Recently, as I was brushing my puppy, Brinkley, I started to cry, out of the blue. It wasn’t for a single, specific reason, but rather the weight of all of the different emotions my heart was carrying became too much; they...

Last week, our community was attacked when a wicked man opened fire in the Buffalo Allina Clinic. An innocent life was taken, and others are facing a long road to recovery. These past few days have been a roller-coaster of emotions, from saying some choice words about the shooter to holding back...

How do you give and receive love? This is the question author Gary Chapman explores in his book, “The 5 Love Languages.” Whether you’re married, dating, single, or simply want to better love those around you, I highly recommend reading this book and taking the quiz to understand your love language...

Last week, I received a phone call from a Wright County resident, who suggested I put together a group of trusted experts I can look to for answers and guidance; this was in response to the column I wrote about not handing over our trust to people labeled as such. Our chat was respectful (yes, it...

It’s about that time of year when I start itching to do some organizing. My husband and I moved into our home last summer, and since then, I’ve been eying the closets and cabinets that are begging to be better organized. I consider this time as my “pre-spring cleaning.” I’ve found that if I try to...

One of my favorite things about this job is the opportunity to talk with locals and have an understanding about what’s going on in Buffalo and Wright County. Whether it’s reporting on city council meetings or talking to people about special interest stories, there’s always something to learn about...

On January 2nd, I realized I had yet to pick my 2021 word (I usually spend the days after Christmas working on this). In past years, my word came to me fairly quickly, but I found myself needing a little more stillness this time around to quiet the extra noise and focus. I read through my current...

  As the great Rambo once said, “I’ve always believed that the mind is the best weapon.” What an incredibly different world we’d be living in if more of us shared this belief. Instead, we’ve become robotic in our daily scrollings through social media, cluelessly jump on political and social...

  It makes me genuinely sad that so many people are itching for 2020 to be over and done with. While I admit the year has been a rough one, this doesn’t mean it was a complete waste, nor will our problems end at the stroke of midnight. Every single day is a gift, and it’s a shame we’ve wasted so...

  At 25 years old, I still get giddy every Christmas Eve. When I was little, I’d put on my Christmas pajamas, mix up a mug of hot cocoa with a candy cane, and watch “White Christmas” or “It’s a Wonderful Life” with my family until it was time to go to bed. I’d beg to camp out in a sleeping bag in...
