The Story of Little Chip

Posted: Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
Most of us, rural or urban can get attached to an animal. Our barn cat Jay Jay has a special place in my mind. Somebody dumped a litter of kittens on the church grounds. I took three of the little tomcats. We got them situated and when the time came I castrated them in the tack room.

Excellence in economic development

Posted: Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
Promoting economic development in our local communities is a crucial part of tackling the $19 trillion national debt.

MOVING FAT

Posted: Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
There's been a lot of fuss recently about "trans-fats". Apparently, the food police have finally caught on to the fact that trans-fats are bad. Normally, I'm against the food police but this time I'm glad they are finally figuring out what everybody else knows and are doing something about it!

Posted: Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
This theme, more than meets the eye, is an apt description for the entire universe. If you've ever read about or studied science you know that while we humans are visual creatures, there's far more stuff in the universe that we can't see than we can see.

Wanted: Cowboy

WANTED: Cowboy. No TV, No phone. If you don't like dogs and can't tough it in the mountains, don't apply, Alamo, Nevada.
I'd like to meet the ol' boy that wrote that ad. You can almost picture him in your mind. We're all acquainted with somebody that fits his description. He might be willing to give you a month off

OLDIES ARE GOODIES

Posted: Wednesday, May 11th, 2016
With the prices of commodities being what they are, there are probably not a lot of people out buying new vehicles this year. Instead, they are looking sadly at that old farm pickup, and then with a deep sigh, fixing it again.
But don't feel bad about driving that old beater! There are many good reasons to drive a

Cow-calf commentary: Variations

Posted: Wednesday, May 11th, 2016
We live on a dynamic world, in a dynamic universe. When describing our world and universe, the adjective dynamic describes a system characterized by constant change, activity and progress, and that describes the place we live.
We humans seem to like routine and normalcy. We like to plan out our days and weeks and careers and lives, and we like
