  • A Lesson We Should Never Forget

    Updated Jul 27, 2022

    In 1988, Charles Kuralt discovered a story of heroism that would have disappeared from history were it not for the determination of a former Russian prisoner who vowed to thank the men who saved his life and the lives of many of his comrades. During the 40 years of the Cold War, Dr. Nikita Aseyev kept the names of the American soldiers safe and close to his heart. Kuralt was in Moscow to cover the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit when the stocky Dr. Aseyev bulldogged his way into the...

    Patrick Barkey, UM Bureau of Business and Economic Research|Updated Jul 27, 2022

    The way many of us learn about how the things we own work is when they stop working. Like your toaster. Or maybe your car. And in the year 2022, we all started to learn about global supply chains for the same reason. Because for an astonishingly broad array of goods and components, they struggled to keep up with demand. Getting a promise to deliver instead of an actual delivery has become all too common for businesses and consumers alike. To sort out why, we first need to...

  • From My Perspective: The things that bring us together

    Tammy Jordan|Updated Jul 26, 2022

    Last weekend was my annual trip to Whitehall for the Copper K Fiber Festival. This festival holds a spot near and dear to my heart for many reasons. The first is that it is the festival that began my career as a fiber arts instructor. Six years ago, they gave me a shot at teaching a felting class, and as they say, the rest is history. It’s considered a destination fiber festival at the historic Copper K Barn. The grounds are beautiful. The barn, a perfect venue, and they e...

    Updated Jul 26, 2022

    The Lincoln Flea Market has been an institution here nearly every year since 1977, and for organiz-er Jill Sallin, it was a tough one this year. Sitting under a canopy in 90-degree weather Thursday afternoon, July 14, Jill watched as vendors began to arrive and set up for the weekend.
