John Calvin Rezmerski's resume proves he knows what he's doing. His latest release from Holy Cow! Press -- "What Do I Know?" -- shows he's got a mind full of ideas. Rezmerski is Writer-In-Residence at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter and winner of several awards, including an NEA fellowship.

Although he has announced that he is stepping down as the head hockey coach at UMD, Mike Sertich has said he plans to stay in the Duluth community, serving in an administrative capacity at UMD, and continuing to serve this community as he has for most of his adult life. Here's his story from the start. His real name was Mark, but no one ever called him that, except from time to time a stern nun with a mission. Mark, like most young boys, needed a little prodding from time to time. Mark J. "Mike" Sertich was born on Jan. 8, 1947, in the Virginia, Minn., municipal hospital.
November's drab landscape is now with us. Forests hold a scattering of green conifers among bare deciduous trees. A closer look reveals greens of mosses, club mosses and ferns mixing with brown leaves on the forest floor. But to the average passerby, the woods now appear to be empty and colorless. Until the snow covers them, our lawns still hold green grass, but not much other green is to be seen in the region. Nearby meadows and fields may be the most listless of all.
At first only four Denfeld descendants planned to visit. Then it was 27. Turns out, more than 40 showed up last Monday to tour a part of the family's legacy -- Denfeld High School. Four generations of Denfelds traveled from various states to learn about the school named after their famous relative, Robert Eduard Denfeld. Grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even great-great-grandchildren came from California, Oregon, Virginia and Montana. They were as young as 3 months to as old as 89. It was evident this family holds their grandfather in high esteem.
Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay recently wrote a commentary for the Duluth Budgeteer (published Sunday, Nov. 20 on page A7) about the dramatic increase in Duluth's deer population. His assessment of the city bow hunt, deer/car collisions and the out-of-hand population of deer are all right on the money. "Thank you" to Chief Ramsay for making these thoughts public. I would guess many of his Duluth neighbors citywide feel the same way. Hopefully what he has said will prompt the city and DNR to take further action. City-dwelling deer are no longer cute. Their appetites are voracious.
