Editor: I am in favor of the NFL protests. As much as I dislike them, it is one of the freedoms we are guaranteed under our Constitution. A number of players (over 200) from the teams have taken a knee or have decided not to come out of the locker rooms for the National Anthem.
Editor: As of July of 2017, Chronic Wasting Disease is known to exist in 21 states in the USA in the wild deer population.

It was Kalena’s entire speech. From my front row table sitting with Pete and Murnie Fast, I never saw Kalena look at any notes.
Editor: It is not even funny that one cannot escape politics. It is in the workforce, entertainment, sports, churches, and just about everywhere else. One cannot even relax watching football as several players will kneel or sit out the “Star-Spangled Banner” in protest. Even the Miss America Pageant has become involved with the contestants being

Editor: If you missed the FUN of this past Thursday evening at the old El Dorado Drive-In Theater, I hope you plan RIGHT NOW to make the next event. Reminiscent of the theater’s early days, there were cars, lawn chairs and a great experience enjoying a super game with splendid weather as a bonus to
