For as long as she can remember, Emma Jorgenson has adored theater. When she was a little girl her mother’s law firm took her to see a children’s play and she was entranced by the performance. Growing up in Gothenburg, she would eagerly wait to see the high school perform their annual musical, when she was an elementary student. When she entered high school she immediately found a place in the arts, participating in both One Act and the Musical program.
Scout Bell and Addisyn Jesseph were spotted bringing smiles to people’s faces by Ehmen Park last Friday. The two girls put their heads together and turned a moment of boredom into a community experience. The Gothenburg Times received calls from community members that these two girls made their day. They were standing on the sidewalk, holding a big sign that said, ‘Honk! Bc we are bored”. The girls told the Gothenburg Times that they had a lot of people honking and that it helped cure their boredom. (Photo by Ashley Mohler)
“My biggest accomplishment was working at my job for 44 years,” my grandmother, Rhonda Ferguson, shared as she sat at the kitchen table and had a warm cup of coffee. Ferguson’s favorite person at work was a lady named Norma Fowler because she made things enjoyable and made Ferguson laugh. I could see her enjoying the daily routines of a workplace because even now she is super responsible--though sometimes she can be a little forgetful, too. For instance, I remember once she took me out to dinner and forgot to pay for the meal. “You have to keep things light and humorous,” Ferguson told me that evening. “It was still a great day.”
