Over the last three months, all of us have experienced unprecedented challenges and upheaval caused by COVID-19. Our African-American, Latinx, Somali, and low-income communities have been disproportionately impacted, while our Asian and Asian-American neighbors have been targeted with vitriol...
I really wonder why I bother trying to respond to one of our aged flower child want to be’s, infantile fits of outrage. I suppose his deliberate, childish, misspelling of my name, calling me a snake in the grass and a Russian bot, fill some need in his miniscule closed mind, to keep out any...
The Long Prairie-Grey Eagle School Board recently released a statement to the community for the conclusion of the 2019-2020 school year.  “As the school year comes to an end, the Long Prairie-Grey Eagle School Board would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to our LPGE students, parents, staff...
I received an e-mail the other day, it was the obituary about the death of common-sense. One example, of many given as evidence of death, was the case of a lady ordering a cup of coffee, at a drive thru, spilling it in her lap, only later to have a court order the drive thru, to pay her millions of...
The other day Donald Trump called all of the most recent $3 trillion House coronavirus relief bill "dead on arrival" because it includes vote-by-mail. Trump said, "They want to be able to make sure that Republicans can't win an election by putting in all sorts of mail-in ballots.” Why does Donald...

Some of us older folks recall George Bush Jr. gleefully shouting “I’m the Decider” back in April 2006. We all heard that and thought it was pretty horrid. Then we remembered that Shrub, we called him Shrub because his Daddy was the big Bush, was immature and a few bricks short of a load. We didn’t...
One of the most enjoyable things I did last week was call Greg Van Hoever. Greg runs the kitchens at the Long Prairie - Grey Eagle schools. I knew Greg from when he used to buy watermelon from our farm to feed to the students. I remembered that Greg was always trying to make the food at school...
Like everyone else, all I’ve been hearing of, is the COVID-19, corona virus or Chinese virus. Apparently, the name it is called, depends on how old school you are (named after area of origin), how politically correct you are, or how racist you are. Somehow, since it’s a Chinese flu and not the...
