A Gregg Luginbuhl coffee mug sits at my keyboard as I write this. Perhaps you hold one as you read this.
Gregg was artist laureate of Bluffton. The title passed to him from his father, Darvin. Before Darvin, it belonged to John Klassen. Gregg also belongs in the same class with other former Bluffton artists Richard Minck and Paul Soldner.

At one time or another every town should have an Al Ingalls.
Bluffton had one. And we truly feel for the towns that didn’t.
Al and his wife, Millie, owned Ingalls Restaurant. It was the last real sit-down restaurant on Main Street.
What a place. Hours were, oh, 5:30 a.m. to, what, 10 p.m. at night?
Those hours were set for the community, not the owners. It operated in a sort of informal “community system.” Meetings took place there. Deals developed. Coffee was poured. More meetings took place. More deals developed. More coffee was poured.
