Pipe bursts in Sayles-Hill, campus adjusts

Carletonian - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 12:00pm

“We were really impressed with how the campus community pulled together to get Sayles back online; there were many unsung heroes last week who went above and beyond, including Facilities, Campus Services and ITS. For the most part, folks were very understanding and patient with the setback. This disaster highlighted just how vital the Sayles-Hill Campus Center and its services are to Carleton.”

Time's up for white women's complicity

Carletonian - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 12:00pm

If we are to move forward, we need white women to acknowledge their privilege and their complicity in structures of power. How do we reach the women in Alabama and across the U.S. that vote for sexual harassers and abusers? I’m not sure. I do know that it needs to be done while we work with women who have been consistently fighting for equality, safety, and respect. We cannot sweep the wrongs women (especially white women) do under the rug for the sake of uplifting an ideal vision of “women.”

The Year of the Woman hoax

Carletonian - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 12:00pm

Labeling 2017 as the Year of the Woman is a big statement. The label “Year of the Woman” was first popularly used in 1992 after many female senators were elected. It has since been used, especially in 2017, to recognize the rise and importance of women in politics and society as a whole. The year 2017 saw enormous marches all over the nation to draw attention to and fight for the rights of women. In moments like those I believed in the slogan, and will always believe in the power of women. But I have to question, has there ever really been a Year of the Woman?

Diane Pearsall is Making A Difference

Northfield Healthy Community Initiative - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 9:00am

Northfield Healthy Community Initiative (HCI) recently recognized HealthFinders volunteer Diane Pearsall with the “Making A Difference” award for investment of her time and her heart into our community. The award is given to community members or organizations that help make Northfield an even better place for young people.

HealthFinders Collaborative — with offices in Northfield and Faribault — offers medical and dental care, along with wellness education, to community members with limited access to such services. Because HealthFinders meets the needs of a diverse population of clients, it relies on volunteers for services such as language interpretation.

A recently retired Carleton Spanish professor, Diane volunteers her time as a HealthFinders volunteer interpreter twice weekly. Diane received numerous nominations for this award. Natalie Marfleet, project lead at HealthFinders, noted, “Diane is our longest-serving, most dependable Spanish interpreter. She stays calm even during stressful patient visits and does her best to ensure patients fully understand what the doctor or nurse has said to them.”

Emily Carroll, nurse practitioner at HealthFinders, added that “Diane’s consideration and care for our patients – young and old – is outstanding and her generous spirit and good nature lifts everyone’s mood even during the busiest clinics.”

Diane’s dedication to HealthFinders patients and to our community is obvious. “Our patients love how she interacts with them; she is truly a blessing,” summed up another nominator.

The Northfield Healthy Community Initiative and the Northfield News present the Making a Difference Award cooperatively. If you know an individual or group that you would like to nominate for this award, visit www.northfieldhci.org for nomination guidelines and the easy-to-complete application, or find HCI on Facebook. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and are selected by a review team of HCI board members and local youth.

Growing in the New Year!

Daffodil Bulbs being forced in a vase.

Oh! It’s cold! The brief respite from the deep freeze last week, while welcomed, has just made its return that much harder! So, to soften the blow of that drifting snow, I pulled out all the stops! I paged through my favorite seed catalog, read the latest edition of Northern Gardener Magazine, drooled over all the new and exciting perennials, (stay tuned for more about those), and pulled the daffodil bulbs out of the crisper drawer of my refrigerator. I must admit I was feeling quite pleased with myself for squirreling them away indoors to be forced this winter. So begins the 2018 growing season. Not out in the yard, not in the greenhouse. But quietly and simply, with snow falling out the window, at my warm kitchen table, in lists and notes, seed orders, and daffodil bulbs.
