  • JOE

    I’ve been a Twins fan for as long as I can remember . . . and wonderful memories of so many men who have put on their uniform. Certainly, there have been some great ones–and some so distinguished that they have been inducted into the …

  • OBITS

    A highlight of my week is reading the Sunday Star-Trib on Sunday mornings. I always start with the ‘Sports’ then the front page, Minnesota section, opinion pages, and then save the Variety section’s crossword puzzles to work on later in the day and through the …
