It was zero at our house Monday morning. My sister told me that at their house a quarter mile away, it was -3. I’m so glad the weather guessers got it somewhat wrong. They predicted 4 – 8 inches of snow. Kimball and I guessed that we got two inches. I was up about 4

It’s been a crazy winter. Country roads, including a spot in our driveway, are giving way where they have never done it before. I called the Cedar County Road Department and told them about a soft spot (to put it mildly) on Road 601. They graveled it that day. I called St. Clair County Monday

Have I told you what I like about icey weather on the weekend? Absolutely nothing. The only thing I accomplished that was worthwhile was study my Bible a little both days. I read about Samuel anointing Saul king over Israel and how long it didn’t take the new king to run afoul of God. Then

Just in case you missed it last week, I’m giving you another shot at the survey Supt. Mark Koca put out last week on whether you favor or oppose a four-day school week. I wasn’t sure what all that might entail so I interviewed Mark last Thursday. The school had already received over 300 responses

Jana Witt put in a lot of hard work helping do the major article this week on Cedar County Memorial Hospital, but I thought something was lacking – something to really spark your interest and make you want to read the article. As Kimball and I were about to leave for a very late lunch

As is my practice, I asked Kimball if she had anything for the Rock Wall. She came back with, “You can tell people it’s cold.” I asked, “Do you think there is anybody who doesn’t know that? She said, “Haven’t we seen several people in short sleeves and shorts?” I had to agree that we

– We had an hour long wait to get into Sister Marcine Benham’s family night Friday. During the wait, I saw just about every cousin I’ve got. Didn’t have a clue about the couple in line ahead of us. I asked her if her tall leather boots were for snow. Yes, and she likes snow.

I was getting in my pickup to leave Shopko Thursday, when Darrell Eason came over to tell me about a huge boar he had just seen on a trailer at the Conservation headquarters. Darrell is a life long hunter so I knew he wasn’t exaggerating. I called Conservation and they had already taken pictures of
