GH Sellars is celebrating this weekend with an Oktoberfest beer garden in downtown Aberdeen.
Dear Abby: Halloween is around the corner, and my 7-year-old daughter has decided to be a cowgirl. She wants the boots, the hat and the gun.
Dear Abby: I am a retired widow, crippled with rheumatoid arthritis. Every October, I start dreading Halloween, which I consider to be a legal form of extortion.
When the first men came to this corner of the country and began toppling the big timber, they started by tackling the trees nearest the rivers and transported them to the mills using the infinite strength of the rivers. As the forests receded, loggers resorted first to oxen and skid roads, and then to railroads, with tracks extending miles into the back country. All phases of the timber industry carry a certain amount of risk, and logging trains were no exception. What follows are a number of gruesome and truly horrible fatal accidents that took the lives of men who had no idea that they were facing their last day on earth. These stories are not for the fainthearted.
Dear Abby: My fiance, “Derrick,” and I have been engaged for almost a year. The whole time we’ve been together he has been overseas. While he has many of the characteristics I look for in a man, he isn’t as down-to-earth as I’d like him to be.
Spend an evening with President Harry S. Truman in the Oval Office as he transports the audience back to the tumultuous times of the 1940s and 1950s, when his presidency helped shape the future we experience today. Don’t miss his folksy humor, and his personal reflections about family history, his political career and his time in office. This play brings to life one of the most important persons ever to hold the office of President of the United States.
Dear Abby: I have a serious problem that’s consuming my life. I know people say you never really get over your first love, but I don’t know why after six years I still think about my ex on a daily basis.
Ah, Prince Charming.
Dear Abby: I think I have an abuse problem. I have been with my boyfriend for a year, and already I feel like he is fed up with me. I don’t want to lose him.
How do you hide black beans in brownies, chia seeds in pudding or avocado in truffles? Beat them into submission with a food processor.
Dear Abby: I had my last cigarette and drink of alcohol 50 years ago. Back then, excessive drinking, smoking, overeating or nail-biting were signs of weak will, sinfulness, bad upbringing and who knows what else.
Dear Abby: I’m a teenage girl who is frustrated with my family. I am the middle child, and it seems like my parents prefer my brother and sister over me. I am constantly in trouble for things they have done, and my parents are aware that they did.
