Fair food is notoriously fried, sweet and interestingly weird. Only at the fair could a vendor offer fried Coca Cola or Pepsi Cola and make a killing. It seems like every year they come out with something even stranger than the year before; the Iowa State Fair even sells fried butter now!

Healthy choices extend beyond diet and exercise. They also include the decisions you make everyday in regards to your personal safety.

The Mower Refreshed Mental Fitness Goal Group sponsored the second annual TAKE 5 Event on June 3th at the Hormel Nature Center. Approximately seventy community members representing, among others, teachers, counselors, social workers, clergy, health care, high school students and law enforcement, and parents from throughout the county, gathered to learn more about Adverse Childhood Experiences from Glenace Edwall, Director of the Children’s Mental Health Division at the Minnesota Department of Human Services. The participant’s began the work of considering responses to the research shared by Dr. Edwall that made sense for Mower County communities.
Reset, refocus, realign, re-evaluate, re-do, reboot, all do-overs in some way. Taking what we are doing, have done and deciding to do it differently. This is where real learning happens – in the midst of all the do-overs. Too often we view those times as failures or mistakes because we’ve been trained somehow to believe we can get it right the first time – every time.
