A Friend…How can this happen in our country? Florida’s Republican Governor DeSantis signed legislation into law on Tuesday that requires students and faculty of public Florida universities to report their political views to the state starting this July. House Bill 233 requires university students...
I tend to call the Todd County Sheriff’s Office when I see a public safety threat or when a crime has been committed. Over the years I’ve made a number of calls and visits to the Office. I’ve always been treated respectfully and, when action was necessary, the deputies have responded quickly and...
It’s been a fairly dry spring. The only signifiant rain that has fallen came pretty much all at once early in April. Over four days nearly four inches fell. During that time the Long Prairie River almost reached flood stage and then went back to normal. It seems that heavy rainfall over short...
Just returned from two weeks in the sunny south. It really was the sunny south too. It only rained on two occasions, once in Louisiana and once in Tennessee, unbelievably, both times were during the night. It really felt great to be on the road, especially after being all but locked down for the...

His latest reason to be outraged and offended is the so called “plan” for Riverside Park and the fact that humans may once again share this...
How do you think the most popular, most charismatic and most voted for candidate and now President, in all of Americas history is doing? I, like I’m sure most of you, feel what he has already accomplished is just astounding. In just his first day, he signed seventeen executive orders, pretty sure,...
