UPTOWN— "My grandfather's life was really the machines. He received a full patent from the U.S. government for the Hansen's Ice Shaving Machine. After he retired from the machine shops, he came to work with my grandmother, and they never left each other's side. They wouldn't go for a walk or go to the K&B without each other. It's a beautiful love story. Love and snowballs." —Ashley Hansen of Hansen's Sno-Bliz tells the Gambit this week. [Gambit]
