Our View: Jessup was instrumental in engineering city
Woodbury, as we now know it, didn't exist in 1985. The retail shopping Woodbury is now known for was limited, as was population in the little east metro city of about 15,000. That was what the community looked like when David Jessup arrived here as Woodbury's first city engineer....

Soucheray: Consider what's going in your summer body

Soucheray: Need to argue? Consider this tack
Probably the most common reason couples identify for seeking therapy is a lack of thoughtful, considerate communication. They say they don't know how to talk to each other so that both partners feel they have been heard, or how to share their feelings so that no one gets upset.

Soucheray: A salute to the honorable on Memorial Day
