Heard from more Radium people
By Beccy Tanner I had a really sweet e-mail from Phyllis Hahn Hulse, who like some of us, graduated from St. John High School but grew up in the Radium/Seward area. She was in the class of 1946.

Her great-grandfather Jacob Hahn homesteaded the...

Charlotte Gleason's Down Home Razzle Dazzle...
In these days of fast food and a thousand-and-one demands, a sit down meal is always treasured. The other evening, Bob and Charlotte Gleason invited me over for a home-cooked meal. I could not refuse. And we are talking such good food. I asked Charlotte if she’d mind. She thought it would be okay. Her casserole was so good. I thought some of the readers on the Radium blog might like a bite...
