Gratitude is a winning attitude -By Harvey Mackay 2

0 2 0 has presented challenges for all of us, not the least of which is wondering if life will ever return to normal. It’s been tough sometimes to be grateful for much, considering what is happening all around us. But I have an idea that a friend shared with me when I heard grumbling about not being able to go to a ball game, or gathering with friends, or having to cancel a long-awaited trip. “Yes, I know it feels like so much has been taken from us. But there’s still plenty of material to mine,” she suggested. “Start by finding joy in small things. Think of all that you have instead of wishing for what you don’t have.” Her point was simple: If you are not grateful for what you have, it is doubtful you will be grateful for what you will get. I’ll admit, at first it took some time and thought to adjust my attitude. But once I started listing what I was grateful for, I just kept going. My list was pretty long. And most of the items were not “things” at all. They were the people and experiences in my life. I’m betting that all of you can make a similar list if you try. Start looking for little things that you can appreciate. November is National Gratitude Month. That seems logical with Thanksgiving always falling on the fourth Thursday of November. But you don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving to show your gratitude and appreciation. There’s something to be grateful for every morning you wake up. Challenge yourself to greet each day with an attitude of gratitude. “Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions,” said Zig Ziglar. “The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.” In fact, there are some pretty significant physical and mental benefits to gratitude,

which include: • Improved physical, emotional and social well-being. • Greater optimism and happiness. • Improved feelings of connection in times of loss or crises. • Increased self-esteem. • Heightened energy levels. • Strengthened heart, immune system and decreased blood pressure. • Expanded capacity for forgiveness. • Decreased stress, anxiety, depression and headaches. • Improved self-care and greater likelihood to exercise. • Heightened spirituality – ability to see something bigger than ourselves That list alone should provide the impetus for looking for reasons to be grateful for what you have. And remember, where you are isn’t where you have to stay. As you ponder the things that you are thankful for, you can also look forward to how you can use those gifts to move to the level where you want to be. Maybe your job isn’t as challenging or fulfilling you’d like it to be. But you have gained professional experience, developed people skills that could lead you to take on more responsibility, provided opportunities to grow your network or discovered that your real passion lies in doing something different – all while being able to pay the bills with a little left over. That kind of education is a reason for gratitude, especially when you move on to your new and better job. Have you told the people around you how grateful you are for their roles in your life? It doesn’t need to be flowery or formal, just sincere. You might be surprised at how they respond –perhaps because no one has ever told them they’ve made a difference.

Now here’s the bonus: not only have you given them a boost, but you’ve also moved your own gratitude meter. Saying thank you out loud has genuine rewards. If a face-to-face conversation is awkward, why not go back to the best kind of mail anyone can receive: the old-fashioned hand-written thank-you note. And I don’t say that just because I’m an envelope guy! Start looking around for reasons to be grateful. It won’t take long, and it won’t cost you anything. You don’t have to be a psychologist to understand that you are responsible for your own happiness and attitude. A four-year-old actress was appearing in a movie with an aging, crotchety star. One day, the star came on the set all made up beautifully, and the little girl said to her, “Gee, you look so nice.” The actress made a pouty face and replied, “What am I supposed to say to that?” The little girl politely remarked, “You could say thank you.” Mackay’s Moral: Thanksgiving is good, but “thanksliving” is better.

“The Good Old Days” -By Tom Kuehne Native Americans

Clothing was primarily the skins of animals and in some cases they were also used for shelters. These skins were taken along when moving to a new location, but other structure framework and coverings were left behind. It was easier to create new structures at the new location rather than to carry these items for miles. These original groups felt the land was a mother figure that fed, clothed, sheltered and warmed them. They cared for the land and found it hard to understand why the white settlers wanted to change the land for their own purposes. They didn’t like to see their earth being changed and their way of life being destroyed. For feedback or story ideas, email Tom at tom@swanvilleinsurance.com.

I was contacted recently by an apparent native American asking me why I had neglected to include any reference to the people that lived in this area before the European settlers began the idea of owning land. They were living here for many years before this country became “civilized.” It seems that being civilized includes the elimination of any person, natural growth or animal that challenges the existence of the new occupants. The historical local residents moved into Minnesota shortly after the disappearance of the last glacier, about 8,000 years ago. It seems that one of the original languages included Athabaskan, which still is common in Northern Alaska. The original Minnesota residents lived off of the land, which means that their diet was primarily made up of foods that were harvested from the woods and waters when they were in season. There is some history of planting foods in plots to aid in the harvesting process. There were disputes among native groups regarding who had a right to occupy a geographic area, which seen to be primarily caused by other groups trying to take possession of a food supply, which had been discovered and developed by one group for many years. The groups were frequently family groups and seemed to be constantly moving to different locations, rather than building a permanent residence. The movement usually followed the availability of food. Fishing, berry picking, wild rice harvesting, acorn gathering and wild game availability caused the natives to move near the food source. A local historian gives another reason for movement. He owned an area which had been a location of a native village. The group came to that location for about 6 months almost every year due to the availability of food, but since there was no sewer systems in existence, the gathering of human waste was also a reason for moving on. These original groups depended on stone tools to help accomplish their needs, There were no horses and no wheels. They did use watercraft as a means of transportation, but most of the movement was by walking and carrying.

Dave Says -By Dave Ramsey Dear Dave, I let my fiancée use my car to get back and forth to work, and it has a lot of miles on it and a few mechanical issues. The money we’ve put into the car to fix the issues is about the same or more than the car is actually worth. We just started your plan a couple of months ago, and we’ve almost got a beginner emergency fund saved up. We also have very little consumer debt to pay off. I’m afraid, though, if we get into a second $1,000 to $2,000 car, we’ll just experience the same kinds of issues and it will turn into another money pit. I bring home about $5,000 a month, and she works part-time and goes to school. How do you think we should handle things? -Thaddeus Dear Thaddeus, Well, if you’re serious about following the plan, you don’t really have a choice right now. But you’re bringing home a nice paycheck, man. You ought to be able to buy a better $1,500 to $2,000 car with cash in a month or so, just to give you some relief. Then, stick some money aside each month until spring and get something that’s a big step up in the $5,000 to $6,000 range. Listen, I don’t want anyone driving

around in a rust bucket longer than they have to. And it sounds like you really need to get up out of the junk. But if you do some research and buy wisely, you can get a good year or two out of a $1,500 car. The car may not look like much, but you’re not trying to catch a girl’s eye. You’ve already got a fiancée. If you find an old Honda or Toyota that’s still mechanically sound—and yes, they’re out there—it’ll get you by while you save up for something a lot better. But remember, you and your fiancée don’t need to own anything together until you’re married. The kind of arrangement you have now can cause real problems. If you guys get married and combine your resources and dreams, it’ll be better for everyone relationally and financially. You’re playing house already, so you might as well go ahead and get married and combine your lives on every level. It’s time to paint or get off the ladder, dude! -Dave * Dave Ramsey is CEO of Ramsey Solutions. He has authored seven best-selling books, including The Total Money Makeover.

Irene Evelyn Botz

The world lost a beloved woman, our sweet mother Irene Evelyn Botz, 96, of Long Prairie peacefully went home to be with the Lord, Saturday, November 14th, 2020 at the Mother of Mercy Nursing Home in Albany, MN. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 1:00 PM, Friday, November 27, 2020 at Saint Mary of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Long Prairie. Visitation will be one hour prior to services at the church on Friday. Fr. Omar Guanchez will officiate and burial will be at the Long Bridge Cemetery in Little Sauk at a later date. Irene was born September 13, 1924 in to Clarence and Julia (Leseth) Thompson in Little Sauk, MN. She attended school in Sauk Centre. At a very young age, in the depression era, she had to work just so she could stay in school. Even so, she was unable to complete High School. Her goal was never lost. In 1981, at 57, she earned her diploma. During WWII, as a teenager, she met and fell in love with a handsome blond haired, blue eyed sailor, Norbert Botz. They married when he returned on leave November, 22, 1943. When Norb return from the Navy they settled on a farm south of Long Prairie where they raised seven children. Money was scarce and work abundant on the farm but loving and caring for the children left little time to dwell on it. Irene was a “doer” and when something needed to be done, she met the challenge. She made sure her family went to church each week and enjoyed fun times with her growing family. Sadly, the marriage to Norb ended in 1980. Life was hard but she persevered with strength and grace throughout. Irene, meaning “peace” demonstrated that trait throughout her life. She was kind, caring and loving person who was known to be humble and soft-spoken. Her great faith was apparent in the way she lived her life. Giving of herself to others if someone needed help, she was there to lend a hand. Irene also worked as clerk at Lubert’s Grocery, a nurse’s aide at the LP Hospital, later at the LP nursing home, and as home health aide. Irene did not let any grass grow under her feet, even after “retirement”, she worked with a good friend, painting houses and apartments, inside and out, until she was 79 years old. Even though the jobs she held did not pay much, Irene could make a lot out a little. Somehow, she always found ways to attend graduations, weddings and special events of family and friends, no matter where they were and enjoyed regular vacations. Irene was absolutely the best mother offering everything she could to her family - faith, time and love! Her legacy lives on through her four sons, Marvin (Jeanne) of Wall, SD, Norman (Janice) of Chiniak AK, Conrad of Eagan MN, Tom (Connie) of Delano, MN; three daughters, Norene (Roger) VanValkenburg of Reno, NV, Marie ( fiancé Gene Miller) George and Janet (Rick) Byland both of Sauk Centre, MN; in her grandchildren Nichole, Julie, Kara, Michelle, Jason, Jackie, Angie, Jody, Dusty, Jeremy, Tim, Jon, Katie, Conrad II, Jasmine, Tyler, Ben, Rochelle, Lucas, Mackenzie, Molly, Jess, Ricky, Whitney and is further continued in 61 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Loved ones preceding Irene in death are parents; infant son John; son-in-law Dwight George; her brothers Gordon and Donald Thompson; a sister Lorraine Loheim and several grandchild and greatgrandchild losses.

Mark had a passion and intelligence for studying philosophy and theology, he studied philosophy in Ottawa, Canada and in 2004 received his Master’s degree in Theology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. A highlight of Mark’s life was traveling to Rome in 1980’s and personally meeting and shaking the hand of Pope John Paul II. Mark had also written four Catholic booklets, which are spiritual guides: Our Lady Comes To Fatima, My Lenten Companion, The Jewel of God, and The Sacred Heart Gives Light To The World. Mark’s Catholic faith was important to him, and he put God at the forefront. He would often visit the residents of Little Sisters of the Poor and other nursing facilities. As he aged his physical health became more difficult which limited his employment and in recent years required him to have full care. He enjoyed reading, writing, and watching a good Minnesota Twins game. Mark is survived by his brother, Bruce (Nancy) Schulzetenberg; sister, Mary Dawn (Tom) Johnsen; nieces, Emily (Ben) Olson, Hanna Schulzetenberg, and Nicole Johnsen; and nephew, Kyle Johnsen.

Ann M. Loehr

Private Mass of Christian Burial was held on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Spring Hill for Ann M. Loehr, age 95, of Melrose, who passed away on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at the Pine Villa Nursing Home in Melrose. Reverend Vince Lieser officiated, assisted by Deacon Charles Loehr. Burial was in St. Michael’s Parish Cemetery in Spring Hill. Ann was born on December 27, 1924 to Hubert and Katherine (Schoenberg) Athmann in Spring Hill, Minnesota; she was the third of ten children. Ann was raised on the family farm in Spring Hill and attended country school until eighth grade. When Ann was twelve years old, her father passed away, prompting the family to move from the family farm into Spring Hill. She met Art Loehr, a schoolmate of hers, at the Spring Hill Ballroom. They were united in marriage on September 6, 1943 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Spring Hill. Art and Ann loved to dance, especially to the Rangers Waltz, which extended to their 60th wedding anniversary. Together, they moved to Art’s family dairy farm, working hard to raise hogs, chickens, milking cows and tending to her massive garden. Ann enjoyed canning vegetables, making homemade noodles and baking bread and cookies. She also sold strawberries, raspberries, eggs and pickles. In 1979 they built their home at the edge of the farm, at which point Art retired from farming. Ann went on to work for Kraft Foods and later H.E.I. in Sauk Centre, retiring at age 70. After her retirement, Ann kept busy by giving of her time and talents by volunteering at St. Michael’s Church, working potato pancake suppers, rummage sales, and cleaning the church. She loved her church family. It was the hardest thing for her to leave her Spring Hill home and move to an assisted living facility in Melrose. She was a devout member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, the Christian Women, 500 and Solo Card Clubs and the Birthday Club. Ann was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loved to spend time with her family. She enjoyed gardening, flowers, fishing and camping. She was an excellent seamstress and crocheted countless doilies and scrubbies. Ann loved the Lord, she was a powerful prayer warrior. You were glad she was on your side. She attended daily mass, prayed the Rosary and read her Bible. She is survived by her children, Chuck (Jean), Mary Thielen and Jane (Kent) Brown; ten grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren, with one on the way; sister, Hortense Walz; brothers, Eldred, John, Norman (Marlene) and Vernon (Donna); and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Ann is preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Art of 67 years; sister, LaVera (Michael) Schramel; three young brothers, Leander, Joseph and Anthony; sons-in-law, George Ritter and Paul Thielen, sisters-in-law, Mary Ann Athmann and Kay Athmann; and brother-in-law, Michael Walz.

Automotive Advice from The Under the Hood® Show

Dear Motor Medics, I drive a 2012 Cadillac with a ton of electronic gadgets. I bought the car when it was brand new and I was still working. I was at a point in my life where a car like this made sense but have since retired and the car is beginning to nickel and dime me, or hundred and thousand dollar me to death. It all started with head gaskets at 90k miles then a transmission followed by all the brakes and tires and various sensors and now shocks. The problem is the shocks cost 1k dollars each and they say I need all four. Should I just get rid of the car and find something cheaper and newer or keep it? It now has 95k miles. Why do the shocks cost so much? The shocks on my last car were a few hundred installed complete. -Denver in Kansas City, Missouri A 2012 Cadillac with only 95k miles is still a desirable car in the used car world. It sounds like you have done a lot of the repairs that are common so overall it may be in good shape yet. Struts are fully electronic on these cars and are expensive, but you may try a conversion kit to save a bunch of cash. Most people do not notice a huge difference in ride quality. Consult with your local mechanic for options and ask them their overall opinion of the car and if it should be kept. -Take care, The Motor Medics Dear Motor Medics, I bought a 2015 Ford F150 with a 3.5 ecoboost this spring to pull my camper because it had a lot of power for towing and could get great mileage when unloaded for daily use. The truck only had 40k miles on it and I have put over 20k on it since then. During that time, I had to replaced both turbos after pulling my camper across the country. They failed in the mountains. The second trip out there the engine blew. Both times it was not overheating and was pulling fine, so I do not understand why it Upsala, MN

failed? My camper title says it weighs only 9500 lbs. Well under the 11k towing capacity the internet says my truck has. -Evan in Okoboji, Iowa While we see a few of these engines fail, we would not say we see an abnormal amount fail when not overworked. However, if overworked they love to break in just the fashion your engine has. These engines do have a lot of power so they will keep pulling faithfully until they explode. Double check that camper weight when fully loaded with all your supplies and add in the weight of you and passengers and other gear. It should be 80% or less of the tow capacity. Also verify total towing capacity with your dealer. Only specially equipped F150s can pull that much. Most without the tow package and gearing are not near that rating. -Take care, the Motor Medics For entertainment only. Always consult your local shop and follow all safety procedures before repairs.

A Cat Funny

A couple were going out for the evening. They’d got ready, all dressed up, set the lights, and put the cat put out. Their Uber arrives, and as the couple opened the front door, the cat zips back in between their legs and disappears up the stairs. They don’t want the cat shut in the house, so the wife goes out to the car while the husband goes upstairs to find the cat and put it out. The wife, worried abut some recent breakins in their neighborhood and not wanting it known that the house will be empty, explains to the Uber driver “He’s just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother.” A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab apologetically, “Sorry I took so long” he says, “Stupid old thing was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger and grab her by the scruff of the neck to get her to come out! Then she slipped away and ran into the closet, but I quickly trapped her in the corner and got a good hold on her.”
