SENTINEL TRIBUNE Area Focus Wednesday, April 28, 2004 dr cam come true By Carolyn VanLoh Those of you who read my daughter-in-law's letter from Japan can imagine the excitement my husband Dave and I share concerning Tim and Naomi's return to Minnesota. As Naomi men- tioned in her letter printed in this week's paper, I will be teaching English at Pillsbury Baptist College in Owatonna this fall. I was perfectly content with my responsibilities here in Westbrook when Dr. Crane contacted me, but Dave, who encouraged me to accept the position, remind- ed me that an opportunity like this doesn't often come along My twenty-two years on the staff of Westbrook Christian School have been rewarding and memorable While I will not be a regular teacher there next year, I am not severing my ties with WCS, and I look forward to assisting in any way I can The year and a half that I have been feature writer for the Sentinel/'IPibune have opened up wonderful new experiences for me. I have met and interviewed many people who have been an inspiration to me. Getting to know the Westbrook and Walnut Grove communities better has been interesting. I intend to continue writing for the paper. My schedule next fall allows me to leave for Owatonna on Monday morning and return to Westbrook late Thursday afternoon. Serving as editor of the Southwest Minnesota Farmer is another responsi- bility I plan to continue. I will have to plan ahead for the interviews I do for that publication, but the rest of the work can be done wher- ever I can connect my laptop computer to the internet and Farmer email site. I feel very privileged to be doing the two things I dreamed about when I was a little girl: teach and write One of the attractive perks to my new teaching position is the opportunity to have grandchildren Lily and Isaac just down the street That fact makes Dave envious of me, because he will be stay- ing in Westbrook but he's planning to arrange his schedule so he can get to Owatonna occasionally when I'm there Tornado in the maki ii  ili;i Viola Vick dies Monday Viola Vick, age 91, of Westbrook died Monday.
