  • Write On: Social Media is fine if you wait until Nine 

    Jul 1, 2022

    Essay by: Gabe Johnson Roseau Community School Ms. Katie Laugen, English Teenagers should wait until Ninth Grade to have Social Media Imagine this, two teenagers at a park, walking and communicating about various topics. Taking in the scenery of the trees and small wildlife such as birds and chipmunks. Focusing on the conversations and letting time fly by like the gentle breeze. Now imagine the same teenagers at the park, still walking together. But looking at a screen trapped in its cage. The...

  • It's like that with life

    Julie Elick|Jul 1, 2022

    Good times are different for everyone. I love Disney World. Joe and I went to Disney World four times. I hope to go back soon. Fishing, golf, going to a cabin? Some people even enjoy weeding their garden! Sometimes, I get more enjoyment thinking about an endeavor than actually doing it. Other times, thinking about it makes the endeavor seem wearisome and I procrastinate, when I actually do it, it is enjoyable! Then there is "getting away," I actually do get away, but sometimes I am exhausted... Full story

  • I'm a product of Catholic schools and constant devotion to prayer

    Jeff Olsen|Jul 1, 2022

    As a Catholic kid, I never thought it was unusual in the mid-1950s watching pregnant mothers walk into Christ the King Church on Sundays accompanied by a brood of youngsters. She might be carrying a toddler that is still being breastfed and making quite a scene since she wants no part of that strange place. Had my mother not suffered several miscarriages in the 1930s, there would have been at least seven of us little buggers. My parents finally hit the jackpot with my sister, Barb, in 1939. I...

  • Revolutionized Massage

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jul 1, 2022

    I was fortunate this week to be able to research and write an article on a massage therapist, Jed Kobernusz, with Revolutionized Massage. I give Jed a two thumbs up on his deep tissue massage. He is AMAZEBALLS! He does offer other massage types besides deep tissue. Check out the front page article. I need the deep tissue to get out the golf ball sized knots...right Jed!?! I had noticed Jed had decided to add massage to his personal training career. My first thoughts were he would be great with...

  • No Harm, No Foul

    Sheldon Larson|Jul 1, 2022

    This old farmer was recently asked if I was open minded enough to watch the January 6th hearings, After watching one dem or worse yet a Rino lie about Trump and a bunch more swear to it there was a timeout required to give the nausea time to pass. That twenty-five year old enjoying her minute of fame and glory was just frosting on a very putrid cake. No court in the land allows hearsay evidence. This kangaroo lynch mob does. Anyone that has ever ridden in a limo knows it is not possible to get at the driver or the steering wheel. Both other... Full story

  • Randy S. Kostrzewski

    Jul 1, 2022

    In Loving Memory of Randy S. Kostrzewski June 28, 1964-June 27, 2021 God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be so He put his arms around him and whispered “Come with me”. With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and fade away. Although we loved him so dearly we could not make him stay. A beautiful golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best. Gone one year but forever missed. Always and forever in our hearts our Husband-father-grandfather brother-uncle and fri...

  • The Test: Uncovering False Teachers

    Pastor Joe Elick 1940-2021|Jul 1, 2022

    1 John 4: 1-6 "Christians are too narrow," argued a man. He was responding to a Christian friend's witness to him of Jesus Christ as God's only provision for our Salvation. It is curious, is it not, how some folks find "narrow" to be negative when it comes to the claims of Christianity, and positive when it comes to other areas of life. For example try and convince a math teacher that two plus two equals five. Or how about, you're having open heart surgery performed by a surgeon who cheated on... Full story
