For Ray “Bubba” Sorensen, celebrating local heroes and veterans in general is what it’s all about.

The rock was unveiled Wednesday, although Sorensen was still adding the finishing touches on Thursday. To read more about the artist and the process see this week's Humboldt Independent.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit one of the small Friendship Groups that were organized in the Faith United Methodist Church probably four or five years ago. This particular Friendship Group happens to be the one that Harold and Janice Nostrom were also a part of so when I mentioned the group doing a Cook of the Week for me they all agreed that this would be a perfect time to do this and be in memory of Janice Nostrom. Harold was also there and thought it was a wonderful idea. When I contacted daughter Carolyn for a few of her mom’s recipes her dad had already told her what the group was doing. Lois Ann Johnson shared a picture of the group with me that includes everyone except Harold and Janice who were absent the evening this picture was taken probably a year or so ago.
