I had fun at the Cedar Bowl mostly by hasseling Chad Boyle who was filming for Stockton. I told him that since he is the county assessor he should pull equally for both teams. – Do you remember that Davis gave Kimball some dwarf hampsters and the first two were mean? He switched those for
Sunday while we ate dinner on the grounds at the Concord Homecoming, Steven Barger told me his aunt, Sharon, had called to ask him to have us stop by for a photo of their brutalized mailbox which we did on our way home after church. Then when we got close to home we saw Rod
The only really close Cedar County election I remember was when Don Berry and Fidel Bridges tied in the Republican primary for Cedar County Clerk.

You goin’ froggin’? Season opens at sunset Thursday, June 30. As far back as I can remember Dad took us kids froggin’ as soon as season opened. There are lots of legal ways to take bullfrogs, but we only did it one way – by hand with a gas lantern. That way, you can cull
