Beverly Godfrey column: An army of foul, foul creatures
“Out of it came a stench, … a foul reek, as if filth unnameable were piled and hoarded in the dark within.” — J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Two Towers” In the fall of 2000, there was about a week when you couldn’t walk through my backyard without getting hit in the face by...

Beverly Godfrey column: Sharing food — for the win
You know you’ve just won the potluck if you come home with an empty crockpot. I recently felt like a winner when my fried rice disappeared at one of those end-of-school-year-awards-ceremony-potluck events you probably have attended. It wasn’t exactly homemade, being mostly from...

Beverly Godfrey column: Flipping out over Canadian money
A recent visit to a fast-food drive-through may have been a life-altering experience. I ordered my food, drove forward, paid and was handed my change. Before continuing with the story, some background becomes relevant: I was raised close enough to the border that it’s a lifetime...

Jim Souhan column: Seeing oneself in potential hire typical Minnesota
If the Timberwolves hire Dave Joerger as their next head coach, they will be perpetuating a theme in Minnesota sports. Many decisionmakers hire in their own image. Wolves President Flip Saunders, who is running the coaching search, looks at Joerger and sees the younger version of...

Beverly Godfrey: Rules of rummage
It’s time to declare my favorite hunting season open — rummage sale season. I enjoy time spent getting snacks and taking a pleasant drive with the kids. Give them a dollar, and they can shop all morning. Meanwhile, I can prowl my neighbors’ garages for rain boots, Columbia...

As the sun has started to appear with more frequency, I feel happier, like my old self again, and realize how much my energy was depleted by our long bout with gray, cold and snow. I would have needed the constitution of a robot not to feel depressed this past winter. A lot of people...

Beverly Godfrey column: The drama of plastic bags, part two

Beverly Godfrey column: Bagging the future
I drew a line with a peanut-butter jar last week and threw it in the trash. I believe in recycling; it’s good for the planet, and it is the law to separate recyclables from the trash. But peanut butter jars are such a mess. How much water am I wasting to wash it? That must negate...

Column: Time for college hockey to abandon 'neutral ice' playoff sites
The building was sold out. The fans were crazy. The atmosphere of Wednesday night’s Wild-Avalanche playoff game was quite a sight, no different from any other game in that series. Anyone think it would have been better played in Grand Rapids, Mich.? Didn’t think so. It’s...
