Rrrrippp! Elizabeth Gondan tears bright red wrapping paper from the roll. No need to measure the length. After 28 years as a professional gift wrapper, Gondan knows how much is needed to wrap the purse entrusted to her by a Macy's customer.Crease, fold, tape. Double-sided tape ("No tape should show," admonishes Gondan). A snippet of ribbon and a bow. Maybe a snowman ornament or a sprig of holly.The purse is now a wrapped Christmas gift.Fortunately, notes Gondan, the gift wasn't an ape.It was a large stuffed animal that stood in the way of Gondan's winning the title "America's Most Gifted Wrapper" in a contest Nov. 22 in New York City.

If you think bowling is a tough game, then try doing it when you can't walk to the line, when you're just standing flatfooted, or when you're sitting in a chair or holding onto the back of chair to balance yourself as you release the ball.Try bowling when you have muscular dystrophy, a hereditary disease characterized by progressive wasting of muscles.But some with MS will not let the disease stop them. Let me introduce you to the Hopeful Wheelers.You can find the Hopeful Wheelers league bowling every Friday at Fair Lanes Southdale.
