I’m sitting here trying to think of the words that will best describe the overwhelming feelings of love and gratitude, I and my family, feel for our relatives, friends and people of our community, who turned out in such large, loving numbers, to support and console us in the loss of our wife and...
While Donald J. Trump continues to try to frighten the nation into building a pointless and highly expensive wall between the United States and Mexico, his family business continues to fire undocumented workers that they have illegally employed for years. We first heard about this when the Trump...
Walking the Towle road of life could not have been easy for my beautiful wife. Slightly more than a year after we were married, while pregnant with our first child, she suffered the anxiety, fear and loneliness of having her husband go off to war. We survived this period and were blessed with the...
Who is responsible for the death of Brett Huber Jr? Just over a month ago, in the December 19 issue of the Leader, the front page headline was: “County to pay out $1.8 million in settlement”. Immediately below the headline was a photo of a jail inmate, his back to the camera, making a noose to hang...
For over thirty years we’ve had an area beekeeper put a colony of bee hives on our farm. It’s a great arrangement. We get pollination services for our fruit and vegetable crops and the beekeeper gets access to the large number of basswood trees on the farm. During good years basswoods have heavy...

The New Deal during the 1930s had a tremendous and long lasting impact that will continue well past its 100-year birthday. Many of the roads that we drive on today in Todd County were built by local people working for the Works Progress Administration, or WPA. The beautiful murals in the Long...
Well, the big election is finally over! In our wonderful town, we have a new Mayor and two new City Council members. Congratulations, to the newest members of our city government and nothing but best wishes to you, as you guide our city into the future.  I can’t say enough about how happy I am to...
I don’t know what good, if any, it does, to try and explain why, I see things the way I do, especially to someone who is so partisan, they see and hear only the things they seemingly, have been brainwashed to see and hear. Even though it’s probably a complete waste of time and thought, I’ll...
