Minnesota woman celebrating 106th birthday


SARTELL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota woman is celebrating a big number.

Esther Sharrow, of Sartell, is the guest of honor at the local senior center where family and friends will gather to help her celebrate birthday number 106 Thursday.

Theodore Roosevelt was president when Sharrow was born on April 5, 1906. Remarkably, Sharrow lives alone in her own apartment and doesn't take any prescription medicine.
