Hometown: Medina, Ohio

Age: 53

Family: Husband, Mark; children, Roy, Peggy and foreign exchange student Léonie

Cancer fighter: I’m a radiation oncologist. The areas I focus on in my practice are breast cancer, gynecologic cancers and sarcomas. Radiation oncology? We use radiation to treat cancer.

Vital support: Patients usually need radiation therapy every day for weeks. Obviously, it is a difficult period for them. But it can also be a time that, as medical professionals, we can be a very important source of support, and that’s powerful.

Learning with Minnesota Reading Corps

Nikki Anglin holds a soft spot in her heart for Minnesota Reading Corps—a state-level branch of the national AmeriCorps program which tutors students in reading. As her son entered elementary school, he struggled with reading at grade level.

“My daughters didn’t have trouble with reading, but for some reason, it was much more difficult for him. We weren’t sure what to do to help,” remembers Nikki.

As spring arrives each year, the concept of renewal inspires new projects. Pat Eckert, of Eckert Construction, remodels homes with an eye toward conservation and energy efficiency as well as aesthetics and utility.

Two years ago, Eckert purchased an older home near downtown Rochester. It is now two delightful apartments, but when he first bought the property it was a duplex with a nearly gutted upper floor, outdated interiors and an energy inefficient infrastructure.

How to: Maple Syrup

how-to-make-maple-syrup

In cold climates, starch accumulates in the trunks and roots of different types of maple trees before winter. In the spring, it converts to sugar that rises in the sap. This sap is collected through holes bored into the trunks and heated until much of the water evaporates, leaving the naturally sweet syrup we love.
