III Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey Nothing much to report on this week, except the winter storm, which seems to have stopped a lot of things in their tracks. Because of the bold and blowing snow, last Wednesday's coffee was canoe!led. I debated going, but after going out at 12:30 to walk Ellie and coming back inside thoroughly chilled, I decided I could drink a hot cup of coffee at home without going out in the cold to do it. I guess everybody else thought the same way. Chad Winslow did get out and plow the street s early. At least we have a good street Crew here in Guide Rock. The Midland Area Agency on Ag- ing (MAAA) held their quarterly meet- ing in Hastings. Eight counties are represented in this organization; Lee Doughman is one of the representa- tives from Webster County. She re- ported there is a new member on the board; Dwight Theobald is also repre- senting Webster County. The meeting was to update members on issues for the elderly, such as health, current scums and elder abuse. Since I don't have anything else to report, here's a little item I found on Wikipedia. One Of the current Olym- pic women's speed-skating team is a native Nebraskan. Sugar Raeshelle- Faye Chelsea Todd was born in Omaha to Mike and Diana Todd. She grew up on a Nebraska farm and, at age eight, joined the Omaha Speedskating Club. When she discovered she had a pas- sion for the sport, She convinced her parents tO move to Milwaukee the fol- lowing year so she could train at the Pettit National Ice Center. Her mot.her hated the Wisconsin cold, but made the move immediately. Her father retained his job as an Omaha firefighter and made a 1,000-mile commute every 10 'days to have his time off with the rest of the family. She graduated from Wanwatosa East High School in 2008. Todd has set age group records for the 300, 400, 500, 600 and 800 meter races, winning the midget girls (ages 11-12) l in 2003. She has currently won three spots on the Olympic team, 4th place on the 500 meter sprint, 3rd place on the 1,000 meter race and 4th on the 1,500 meter race. So as'you watch the Olympic speedskating events, cheer for our Nebraska team member. Before the snow started falling, I took Ellie on a walk to the post office. As some of you may know, the gutters on the west side of the street were full of ice from the previous snow and melt cycle. For some reason, Eliie insisted on walking out there on the ice. Fi- nally, after slip-sliding a bit, she appar- ently decided to go ice.skating, put her front paws out in front of her and pushed off with her hind paws. Went along at a pretty good clip, until she hit some, .clned ice ridg.s from where someofie had walkedin the slush be- fore it fi'0z completely. Rather funny to watch her doing this. But when I said, "Let's go home," she turned and . started almost jogging towards the house. She likes snow, but evidently she'd prefer her snow without the ac- companying cold weather. So would I! After all, you can shovel snow off the sidewalks. I've never yet figured out how to go about shoveling cold. As always, a box at the post offige, email me at, snail mail me at P. O. Box 93, or call me at 257-2037, if you've got any news.
