South-West year in review


file photos 2018 saw students raising their voices for safer schools. Students from both Henry Sibley High School, below, and Simley High School, above, participated in a nationwide walkout on March 14. The walkout came in response to the February 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida. From this, a group of Henry Sibley students formed MNeverAgain, which traveled to the March For Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., and wants to work toward what it terms as sensible, comprehensive gun control laws.

The calendar flipping to 2019 means another year has come and gone in the South-West Review coverage area. This past year saw new ordinances and bonds passed, furthering of public safety and changes to school times.

Allowing a little enchantment

The difference between most things, even those that seem really far away, like sorrow and joy, or a really good mood and a really bad mood, is little.

The joy of ‘White Christmas’

Amid all of the Christmas holiday activities, celebrations and chores, one little two-hour event that brings me great pleasure is watching the movie “White Christmas.”

Reflections in ornaments


Marjorie Otto/Review Most of Marjorie Otto’s holiday ornaments hold special memories or meanings, like the tiny red mailbox her grandma gave her years ago with a note she left inside it. Though her grandmother passed away years ago, Otto still takes the note out every year to read it.

I often think of my boxes of Christmas ornaments as some kind of time travel devices.

Family and Christmas tea


Pamela O’Meara/Review High tea is becoming a family tradition for Pamela O’Meara.

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a fancy five-course tea at the St. Paul Hotel downtown with my daughter and granddaughter?

Can you get a six-pack from laughter?


Hannah Burlingame/Review Hannah Burlingame’s annual holiday cookie baking with family often turns into a mini concert, complete with horrible dancing and singing. Trying to get cookies out of burning-hot tins does not work well when you are hunched over laughing.

With the holiday season comes plenty of family events ... sometimes, whether I want it to or not. From small gatherings to 30-plus people, there’s no shortage of things to go to.

Sprucing up the front step on a shoestring budget

It was early November when I stumbled upon a dazzling display of blinking lights and Christmas trees decorated in this year’s hottest colors.
