Patrick White ‘Gone Girl’ a movie worth savoring


The trailer for “Gone Girl” presents a story. All the pieces seem present. The tension builds and audiences think they know what happens in the end. They don’t.

A young woman, Amy Dunne, is missing and the obvious suspect in her disappearance is her charming, aloof husband, Nick. Dun, dun, dun. Author Gillian Flynn, acting as the film’s screenwriter, perfectly captures the spirit of her novel while still cutting off the fingers and toes of her literary baby. Characters are missing, elements are hidden, and all for the better. The screenplay moves with the film. The dialogue is a waltz that slowly, yet violently transforms into a dance with the devil.

Robin Stroot Every day is I Love Yarn Day


Yesterday, I went through the day with a big smile on my face. It was the National I Love Yarn Day. My family will attest to the fact that I love yarn. It’s organized now in large, see-through containers on shelves in my craft room. Some people walk into a coffee shop and take a deep breath to embrace the aroma of coffee. I take a look at the containers and think, I need more yarn!

Joyce OreKeeping lots of old stuff just in case


When entertaining as newlyweds, we borrowed everything we needed from our mothers — coffee pot, snack trays, three card tables, chairs and candy dishes (sometimes the candy was included.)

We had nothing except the wedding china, which as every woman of the ’50s generation knows, was every young girl’s dream.

If you’ve been diligently reading your daily newspaper, you’ve probably come across a byline that you don’t recognize. That would be me. I’m the new girl around the newsroom at the Hastings Tribune, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Now that you can put a face to a name, let me tell you a little bit about myself.

Russ Batenhorst Ready to play gas edition of ‘Price is Right’


Just a few random thoughts as I hope that the highlight of my week doesn’t end up being the fact that I just paid less than $3 for a gallon of gas. Oh, sure, that’s nice and all, I just hope it’s not the high point of the week. Surely, something will top it.
