Soucheray: Throwback recipe book stands the test of time

Soucheray: August signals civility
The month of August begins next Wednesday. The month is highly unusual because we celebrate no national holidays during the month. However, it has been named the National "Win with Civility Month." Some say that if we can't be civil all the time, at least we can do it for a month. But...

Soucheray: Life in today's 7/11 world
There used to be a store called 7-11, today's date, and it was one of the first, if not the first, small, corner grocery-and-gas stores in the Twin Cities that opened and operated to provide convenience about 30 years ago. They were strategically located at the crossroads of busy...

SOUCHERAY: Grandparents reap what they sow
I may be shameless, or brazen and unabashed, but I am so taken with our 10-month old grandson, there simply are not words to describe it. I know I heard friends laud the praises of grandparenthood, but I couldn't quite understand what all the hoopla was about. That is, until this...

Soucheray: Remember freedom on this Fourth of July in Woodbury
Have you ever thought about what freedom really feels like? Do we spend any time thinking about this question? Or do we simply take the ideal of being able to move about as we wish, live where we decide to purchase a home and send our children to whatever school we choose for granted?...

Memorial Day column: World War I relic presents humbling prospect

Viewpoint: Do rights of the few drown out morality?
What is a paradox? According to my dictionary it a statement that seems contradictory ... but may be true in fact. There are, as we know, many seemingly paradoxical assertions floating about these days. There are folks who, for example, prate about the dignity and value of the human...
