    Thank you for posting Millie Otto’s column. I used to read it every week when my step-mother got the Mattoon, IL newspaper. For around 16 years I worked at the Moultrie County Beacon. It is a day training and workshop for mentally challenged adults and is in Sullivan, IL. We have quite a few Amish people who attend there. The Amish/Mennonite community is very supportive of the Moultrie County Beacon and hosts an annual fundraiser each April. It is a huge event at the Otto Center in Arthur and will be held on April 15 this year. The meal begins at 4 p.m. and a large auction starts at 5:30 p.m.

      I was miffed at Millie for a long time because she embarked on a deliberate – and successful – campaign to knock The Amish Cook from the Mattoon paper and replace it with her column. But, you know, that is business and the Amish are business people like anyone else, so now I sort of have a grudging respect for her, it is tough to write a weekly column and she manages to do it!
