Merry Christmas from Mitterteich, Germany

By Caroline Rosacker 

Christmas customs and traditions may vary around the world, but most have a common theme. Karin Bahls, longtime Guttenberg resident, spent most of her childhood in Mitterteich, Germany. Karin graciously agreed to share her beloved childhood Christmas memories.  She began, "I, along with my mother, and older brother, Juergen arrived in Mitterteich in 1945 as German refugees from Oppeln. I was five years old and Juergen was a couple years older. My father was in World War I and II. My older brother, Harry, and older sister, Ulla, were also in the military – drafted by Hitler. They all survived World War II."

Duck hunters' paradise turns into "weather bomb"

By Caroline Rosacker

The Armistice Day Blizzard took place in the Midwest region of the United States on Nov. 11 and 12 in 1940. The unexpected, fierce, early-season "panhandle hook" winter storm cut a thousand-mile-wide swath through the middle of the country from Kansas to Michigan. In its wake the storm dropped more than two feet of snow, burying vehicles and roadways beneath 20-foot drifts.
