In Memoriam

Hudson man killed in motorcycle accident, local woman arrested.
    Meg Heaton Hudson Star-Observer Published Monday, September 24, 2007

Michael Strauch, 55, of 110 Stratford Way, was killed Sunday after his motorcycle was hit by another vehicle on Coulee Road.

The driver of the other vehicle, Victoria Bear, 51, of 473 Country View Road, was arrested at the scene for injury by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle. She was not injured.

According to Hudson Police Chief Eric Atkinson, Strauch was traveling westbound on Coulee Road approaching 18th Street when Bear turned in front of him from 18th Street onto Coulee Road.

Bear is the ex-wife of former Hudson School Board member Peter Bear.

Jim Matten

My first full-time teaching job took me to the small rural school district of Wrenshall in northeastern Minnesota.  The first day was exceedingly hot.  At the end of the day and dripping wet with sweat, I climbed two flights of stairs to the elementary boys’ bathroom.  There I found our head custodian, Jim, in a sleeve-less shirt, rubber apron, and knee boots.  Apparently, some of the boys thought it would be great to fill the toilet bowls with pencils, paper towels, and other . . . well. . . stuff, and then start flushing.  The water on the floor was littered with toilet paper along with the other oddities.  The stench was nearly overwhelming.  With a bit of a nervous laugh, I said, “How’s it going, Jim?”  He turned quickly, adjusted glasses that were slowly slipping down his nose and with a broad smile said, “You know, I’ve never had it this good.” 


Jim never greeted me any other way.  So I thought to myself, “What a testament – he’s covered in sweat, wallowing in slop, and smiles and says, ‘You know, I’ve never had it this good.’”  That’s something I’ve never forgotten. 


That’s also why, when people greet me with “How’s it going?” I answer with “I’ve never had it this good.” 


Try Jim's response – it will make a difference in your life and the lives of others.

From the Petersen family:
" A huge thank you to those who rode their bikes in the funeral procession, it was a great tribute to Bob as he loved to ride. Your kind expression of sympathy is deeply appreciated and gratefully acknowledged by Darlene and family."
