Karen Galema, Mississippi River fisherman [video]

Karen Galema, at age 71 has been a fisherman, an EMT, a bookkeeper for the large fish market in Lansing, and finally the manager of the Lansing River History and Commercial Fishing Museum. After a detailed tour of the River History Museum, I got to sit down with Karen for an interview. This is an excerpt from our interview in Lansing, Iowa along the banks of the Mississippi River on 13 July 2015. This is part of a longer interview in the Secret History archive.

    I so agree with Miss Galema that young people today sometimes don’t appreciate the beauty we have around us and to use our imagination enough to entertain us, in playfulness or just in our every day thinking! Electronics and toys have taken over their minds and bodies as well, so sad to witness! You go girl and you do not look 71!
