A celebrating of the green

By Patrick Fisher

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's that special day when the Irish celebrate and when everybody's a little bit Irish. For me, I'm Irish 365 days a year, as part of my family tree traces back to Ireland.

Through my mom's side of the family I'm related to Clan Kennedy. While it doesn't include the Kennedys on the East Coast (as far I know), there is an old newspaper photo of one of my distant relatives meeting President John F. Kennedy when he was visiting Minnesota.

I've always had an interest in things Irish.
