Robin Washington column: Rather than repeat it, let’s just call it an ethnic slur that rhymes with bagel. And even if it’s self-applied, it’s still derogatory. So it was more than a little surprising to find it in a Lake County Sheriff’s Office report recently.
JIMMY BELLAMY: As president of the Duluth Amateur Soccer League, it’s common for me to receive e-mails from people new to the area looking to join a team. But I’d never read one like the message Matt McCune sent me three summers ago.
The months of summer fall into the church season of Pentecost. The season continues from the summer through November. We began the Pentecost season with a celebration of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday, which fell on May 27 this year.
Column: This month witnessed the unspeakably tragic death of a young, talented and vivacious girl. An outpouring of grief from the entire community of Two Harbors spontaneously arose to confront the loss.
So I’m experiencing a great deal of frustration right now, a frustration that grows out of things beyond my control. I know, I know, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, recognize the things I can’t control ...” blabbity blabbity bloo. All I know is, things aren’t going the way I’d like them to go, and no Serenity Prayer is going to help me out of this funk.
We suffered a detrimental fire in our home a couple of weeks ago. Everybody was safe, most of our stuff is wrecked; but again, everybody is safe. As of now, I don’t care about the singed wedding dress, charred antique study desk or smoke-damaged couch.
I am a sports fanatic, and there’s nothing wrong with that. “Fanatic” is where the word “fan” comes from. I always have been one and I always will be. Anybody who knows me knows that sports is a huge part of my life. They know I’d rather be in the stands at a Bulldog hockey game or watching a Twins game on TV than doing almost anything else.
In case you don’t already know the origin of Halloween, here’s how it came to be. During the Middle or Dark Ages, many people believed that a lord of death sent evil spirits into animals to play terrible tricks on people. To frighten the spirits away, they wore scary disguises, built bonfires, and sometimes even burned animals in the fires because they believed this would appease the spirits. Sometimes treats were set out in the hope that the spirits would stay away. Nowadays, we might see these beliefs as silly superstitions.
