An engaging experience: How I proposed to my fiancee
Willi Nilli (Staff Commentary) For the longest time, I found myself feeling a lot like the “How I Met Your Mother” character Ted Mosby, who could just never make a relationship work out or find the woman he wanted to settle down with. And much like Ted, I felt like I would...

Sarah Sez: My life is a talk show episode
Do you know how many people have told me I should write a book? Quite a few. I seem to attract sometimes bizarre, sometimes hilarious and always interesting people and circumstances into my life. I’ve long ago let go of my craving to have a “normal” life. I am happy being...

Newspaper archives are as good as a diary
News is my life. It’s been that way since I was an 18-year-old public affairs Marine working as a writer and photographer for my base newspaper in Okinawa, Japan. Since my first week at that job I began collecting stacks of newspapers that I had contributed to. Before you start...

Sarah Sez: Not such a perfect match
There is nothing I love to do more than to laugh -- the until I can’t breathe, spit my coffee across the desk and cry all my eye liner off kind of laugh. But this was a little extreme. I opened my work email about a month ago like I do every morning. My eyes bugged out at the...

Growing up in New Richmond helps, hurts new editor
In some ways, growing up in New Richmond has given me a head start on my new job as editor at the New Richmond News, but in other ways it keeps me further behind. I lived here from 1984 to 1996, but don't ask me too much about who was mayor then, or any seemingly significant event....
