After a whirlwind of events—a family wedding “up north,” John’s grandpa’s funeral (north, but not so far north), our 16th wedding anniversary, our girls starting separate sports, and the groove of a new school schedule—my family of four opted to stay home all Labor Day weekend. You can probably...
When I grabbed the can koozie from the cupboard and looked at the inscription it stopped me. “2020 The year Dozinky didn’t happen.” That’s what the pandemic caused. But that’s not what caught my attention. It was the memories from 20 years ago when Dozinky almost didn’t happen! It was Tuesday, Sept...
For years, I have written an editorial/opinion column that is on this page. This week, I need to write another one, but I have a severe case of writer’s block. Oh! I don’t have a problem covering a meeting, sporting event, or a story about an event at the Arts & Heritage Center. That’s easy. I...
Everyone has habits, whether we like it or not. Some of our habits are good ones and some, not so much. Whether you want to consider these habits or not, some good ones are double checking if it’s alright to pull out into traffic or letting a pedestrian go first at a crosswalk. There’s also the one...
As of this Thursday, Aug. 19, edition of The New Prague Times I have reached 22 years of being a reporter here in New Prague. The majority of my 27 years as a reporter has been here in this community that has become my home. There’s been a lot of stories and photos in that time. There’s also been a...
With the current temperatures hitting the high 80s and the 90s, plus almost jungle like humidity on several of those days, the old question “Hot enough for you?” has likely been asked. There’s also probably been the statement, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” Whichever it is, these are days...
It seems like this year’s Kolacky Days was two years in the making. After last year, it was nice to see people getting together and coming to our town for our fantastic festival. Yes, it was hot, but not oppressively so. I applaud the Montgomery Area Community Club (MACC) and its list of volunteers...
I was having an in-depth discussion with a long-lost friend of mine the other day. We were talking about goofy things which people probably scratch their head about for hours. He showed me a website which includes many of these wild realizations people have on buzzfeed.com Here are some of my...
Like anyone watching the work on Main Street progress by our front door, we at The Times sometimes have questions about why the work crews do things. Recently we wondered about the new roundabout and why there are metal “grates” in the areas for the crosswalk. I sent an email to John Voigt, Lead...
Are my kids the only ones who forgot how to act in public? It has been months since the COVID lockdown guidelines were lifted, but I still find myself having to retrain my offspring on the basics.  It’s baffling, frustrating, and a bit hilarious. Last weekend, my family of four ventured to Kohl’s...
