Be it resolved...

By Elizabeth Devereaux

The first day of 2016 found folk engaged in differing activities and sharing similar themes of hope that 2016 will be a better year. Kopperl resident Paul Martin, together with his two sons Jacob and Zachary and good friend John Defee, relaxed after a hearty meal at Johnny’s in Clifton. “I’m not going to make a resolution this year because they’re too hard to keep,” said the senior Martin. “And, I figure I’m doing something right because my feet are on the right side of the dirt.” “No, none,” Martin’s son Jacob succinctly said, echoing his father’s sentiments on New Year’s resolutions.

It was therefore unusual that the Fire Hall was filled with people Dec. 21. Several had asked to speak in Public Forum. Due to time constraints, Mayor Johnnie Hauerland requested to select a spokesperson, which was met with considerable agitation. Each had wanted their own three minutes to address the council.

The ecstasy of physics in C, F and G major transported listeners through the centuries and across ocean with expert manipulation of feet, hands and memory as organist Ken Surley enchanted and challenged the audience during St. Olaf Lutheran Church’s organ recital program Dec. 20. “If you have two hands, 10 fingers and two feet – heels and toes, a memory and a willingness to practice hours a day for years anyone can play the organ,” says Surley, in all sincerity.
