Last Thursday was the first time in a long time I had taken some time to talk to my three Chipmunk friends. But the only one that came out to talk to me was Munk Two. He wanted to know where I had been for the past couple of months. And I wanted to know where he, Chip and Munk One had been for the...
Perhaps you heard Donald Trump earlier this year when he told a national gathering of Veterans of Foreign Wars, “Just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.” Many of the vets applauded and, when Trump gave them their cue, they loudly booed the members of the...
Senator John Cornyn, a Republican Senator from Texas, said that the detention centers where the government has been holding immigrant children forcibly separated from their parents are pretty much like summer camps.  There are a number of summer camps for children in Texas including the summer day...
People say that the platforms of political parties represent the extreme view points of just a few party activists. The platforms are not likely to become legislation proposed by the party leadership, wise political pundits say. Take for example the DFL party platform plank which says electricity...
According to Ryan Kutter, L. P. Leader,7-18-18, the Towle Road needs a little patching.

One of my most favorite vehicles to travel the Towle road in is my 1967 Mercury convertible. Unfortunately, some speedbumps in the road, have caused us not to be able to use it nearly as much as we’d like to. We’ve decided it’s time to part with this jewel and let someone else enjoy it.   I would...
They want to take the U.S. Post Office away from us and sell it to UPS, FedEx, Speedy and all those other delivery services that regularly and inconveniently leave our packages in plastic bags at the end of our driveways come rain, snow, sleet, or whatever. I don’t know about you, but I think that...
The Donald, as some refer to our President, in his quest to make America great again, sure seems to upset some people. I don’t know if it’s a matter of dis-liking him and his successful though unconventional negotiating tactics, or, a fear that he will succeed in making Americans proud and...
