Rushford is a friendly place to visit


Mon, Nov 28th, 2016
Posted in Rushford Commentary

By Ann Bauer

My name is Ann Bauer and my husband is Tony Bauer. We are from Caledonia, Minn. Once a month we take a morning trip for breakfast to Rushford.

My husband works for Caledonia Lumber and in 2007 during the floods, they worked on many homes. One Saturday morning, my husband asked me if I wanted to go to breakfast in Rushford. I never turn down an invite where I don’t have to cook!! Tony said there is a “cute little eating place” there that he had stopped at on his many trips to Rushford. It was also the place where they make the famous LEFSA. My maiden name was Augedahl, and or course it’s a Norwegian name, and I won’t pass up lefsa either! UFFDA!

So, away we went. When we arrived at the little diner, there was a table of retired Rushford residents which my husband knew very well and that, of course, led to quite the conversation of why we were in Rushford.

My husband told them that he thought that his wife would enjoy this little place and the people are all so friendly!!! Needless to say, my husband was so right!!!

This little cafe was so welcoming to us!! The people that were there all spoke with us and asked us how things were in Caledonia. We were there about one hour and had a great time!! When we left, I had gotten my lefsa.

But, our trip wasn’t finished - my husband had taken me to an adorable flower shoppe, and what woman doesn’t’ like flowers!!! When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner, Cindy Thesing, wondering what she could help us with. My husband said, “Well, my wife loves flowers and all the craft stuff!“ As far as I could see, I hit the jackpot with this trip! First out for breakfast, then flowers!

As we walked around, we chatted with Cindy and we felt so comfortable, like we had always known Cindy! Just like we felt when we went to the cafe! We left and told Cindy we would definitely be back!

I think my husband thought he may owe me, because a month before he bought a Ranger side-by-side at the M&M dealer in Rushford!

We were both so impressed with the beautiful town and the people that live there! Everyone was so friendly and made us feel so welcomed!

We have continued our journey to Rushford once a month and have enjoyed every trip! Rushford is truly a beautiful small town with wonderful friendly people! The sign outside of town says, “Welcome to Rushford” and .....

Posted in All Commentary

The very concept of capitalism, as the word implies empowers capital. It is not interested in social issues, sustainability, or truth. It only has one value and that is increasing wealth. Wealth is generated by extraction of natural resources and ex .....

Posted in All Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, We’re told to accept the loss, “stop the shouting” and “back away from the edge.” Poppycock!! This is the same advice we get after each mass shooting - be quiet, it’s too emotional a moment to discuss it. Then it goes a .....
