A reflection on 40 years

You might know Sharon Olander as the friendly face of the Hazen Star front office. Or, you might associate her with her popular "Cook of the Week" column, which she began in 1981 and now runs in three different newspapers. Maybe you speak with her on the phone each spring when you call in to renew your Star or Center Republican subscription. You might even visit with her when you turn in a "Happening," which she then types up for the newspaper each week.

"It’s kind of a long list," Sharon said of her tasks with a laugh. "Days go fast."
