It's been 52 long weeks. As bad as last year's 41-14 loss to Florida in the national championship game still hurts, local Ohio State fans say that has been motivation and will be the key tonight when the Buckeyes take on Louisiana State University for the national crown. The Buckeyes come in at 11-1 overall, with their only loss being a 28-21 decision against Illinois. The Tigers, 11-2, lost both of heir games in triple overtime 43-37 to Kentucky and 50-48 to Arkansas. But as far as Buckeye fans are concerned, this year's results are secondary. They are looking for some atonement and revenge when the BCS National Championship game begins at 8 p.m. in New Orleans.

The cure for nostalgia is to read history, and the cure for holiday sentimentality is to listen for twenty-five minutes to an old friend telling you in a deep mournful voice how desolate his life feels to him right now with the air full of sugar and spice and musical bonhomie and him stranded on an iceberg, feeling unloved, wanting to run away and start over somewhere else, and what did I think he should do? I listened and tried to say validating things, but guys don't sit and brush each other's hair and talk about life late into the night as girls do; our hair is too short. And my friend is 54, which is an awkward age. And I guess I believe in small answers to these large questions. What should you do with your life? Uh, go to a movie. Get out of the house. Wear black underwear. Get offline. Get more exercise. Cut down on coffee. Get rid of the whimsical T-shirts. Grow a moustache. Get in your car and take a trip for no good reason and without permission. Just tell them you're going and go. It's cheaper than divorce. The thought of getting in a car and driving west has saved me from many a despairing phone call. West from Minneapolis, you have your choice of Highway 7 through Clara City and Montevideo toward South Dakota, or Highway 212 through Olivia and Granite Falls, or Highway 12 through Litchfield and Willmar and Benson and Ortonville and across South Dakota through Mobridge and all the way to Miles City, Montana. Our family drove that way every summer back in the Fifties, before the interstates, on ribbons of asphalt lifting and falling gently over the plains toward our relatives in Idaho and Spokane. My dad loved getting behind the wheel and hitting the road, and I loved to stand right behind him in those pre-seatbelt days and look at the road over his shoulder and imagine myself driving. Alone. Window rolled down. Radio playing. The whole deal.

We have a great many irons in the fire for this year and plans are really coming together. Though it is six months away, the antique motorcycle show is going to be lots of fun and, hopefully, area businesses will take advantage of the opportunities it will bring. Don't wait for a formal invitation to let us know your business is interested in participating. There's plenty of room and many different ways to have your business involved. The Home & Business Show is scheduled for Feb. 23 at the Norwalk Middle School. This will be our seventh show and spaces are filling up fast. This year we are working on plans for a health fair feature, new demonstrations, new lunch counter menu and lots more. If you are a member business and want to exhibit in this show you need to RSVP space very soon. The past several years there has been a waiting list of exhibitors. If you are not a member business it isn't too late to join the chamber and get in the show. Call the office for details, (419) 668-4155. The annual banquet is March 27 at the PAC and comedian Karen Vandino will be the entertainment this year. You can wait for the formal invitation for this event and those will be in the mail in the coming weeks. The banquet is really a great night to be part of the chamber. It's a charge to see more than 250 chamber members all gathered in one spot, having a good time and recognizing several very deserving community volunteers. Speaking of recognizing volunteers, the nomination forms are available on our Web site and in the office. We all know someone that goes above and beyond by volunteering in the community. Take a few minutes to nominate them for the Dedicated Service, Distinguished Citizen or Business Woman of the Year. Candidates for these awards do not need to be chamber members, they just need to volunteer or be a strong role model for other women in business. Nominations are due prior to March 7 so don't delay.

Charlene Bauer calls her husband, Roy, the "best cookie maker in the world." Roy credits the title to using his mother's recipes. "A dash of this. A dash of that. A pinch of this," explained Roy Bauer, who doesn't measure anything except flour. Bauer, a farmer and heavy equipment operator, started making date pinwheels, cherry winks and Rome city sugar cookies for the holidays about 20 years ago. His late mother made the same cookies starting when Bauer was a child.
