Working hard, hands-on, for Cottage Grove
I grew up on a farm, doing construction or fixing anything that needed to be fixed. There were 13 of us, and I was the middle child. I learned a lot about the world just by living it. I believe you get the most out of something, not by reading about it, or hearing about it, but by participating.
I am concerned about our young people today and what we are telling them. We teach them that their worth has to do with the education they received . . .
