November Can't Come Soon Enough

Enough is Enough!

To Whom This Pertains To: My husband just came back from the forest where his Grandpa and Grandma farmed years ago. He had put up a sign for his brother, who passed away a couple of years ago. You people with your Rangers, went in there- broke the si... Full story

 

"Flagpoles are making too much noise near the Gazebo" Reply

The Swamp Seems To Be Back This Year

More Questions Then Answers

And we have another mass shooting at a school! The Monday morning quarterbacks are out in full force. As usual there are a lot more questions then answers. Why was a kid that delighted in shooting people with a BB gun and was nicknamed school... Full story

 

No Monkey Business Here

Hard times create strong men. Strong men create easy times. Easy times create weak men. Weak men create hard times. Around and around we go. Our world is a never ending parade of circles. What goes around comes around comes to mind. About the only...

 

Can't Have It Unless You Live

As the Russian comedian from years ago used to say. What a country! The first thing that came to mind for this cynical old farmer when hearing of the Scotus leak was what are they trying to distract us from now? Maybe the southern not the border,... Full story

 

Your Life Might Depend On It!

Is it a coincidence that about two dozen food processing facilities in the U.S. and Canada have burned to the ground in the last six months? Even more amazing is that there has been no mention on any of our beloved news networks. It is pretty easy...

 

History Is Bound To Repeat Itself

The number one question that goes with a cup of coffee these days is when is this weather going to give us a break? Our migratory little birds are all cold and hungry. Perfect timing for the DNR to say “take in your feeders”. It is much better...

Is Vladimir Putin the Devil?

There is nothing good to be said about the Devil. If you don’t believe me, check out the Bible. Or, just turn on the television for a reporting of the evil he spreads throughout the world.  You will likely see his picture, Vladimir Putin, the...

 

THE NIGHTMARE

Things weren’t going as planned for “Vovka,” President Vladimir Putin. Despite his armed forces having marshaled what he thought were overwhelming forces of tanks, armored personnel carriers, air power and troops invading Ukraine from three...

 

Time To Wake Up

Why is it that the one constant among stupid people is that they think everyone else is stupid too? Now the progressive libtards want us to donate guns to the federal government to be sent to Ukraine. As usual the citizens are bearing the brunt of... Full story

 

Is Putin The Next Hitler?

With that Russian Punk Putin invading the neighboring country of Ukraine, do we really need to reconsider the lack of morality of such leaders like Putin and Hitler? Wilfred Owen wrote some of the best British poetry during that “War to end all...

 

One Day at a Time

This winter has got a song going around and around in my head, like a stuck record. I’m only human, I’m just a man. Help me to believe in what I can be and all that I am. Show me the stairway that I have to climb. Lord for my sake teach me to tak...

 

Passing Mandates While Spouting Democracy

It is never wise to get involved in your neighbors business. This time our neighbor is Canada and their problem is not just theirs, but ours and the rest of the worlds. Justin Trudeau left no doubt that the Canadian people are his subjects and not... Full story

 

Re: January 15th Editorial

If the January 15th editorial from Wendy Butler was an example of showing “the world a little more Jesus”, I’m going to say that Jesus needs a better public relations firm.  From what I remember, Jesus was about easing people’s suffering,...

 

God We Need You Now

This old farmer got his Times-Region today and when reading my letter to the editor found not one but two misprints. The one that was supposed to say “If you don’t have to show an I.D. to vote you shouldn’t have to, to buy a hunting or fishing... Full story

 

One Farmers Thoughts

Here’s an opinion from a former judge. “I am a student of law whose age is eighty-five. My first year in college was sixty-eight years ago. One class I took was political science. A half page of my textbook essentially outlined a few steps to... Full story

 

There Is Only One Thing To Say About Global Warming

COME BACK! Anyone trying to sell global warming in the wintertime is not very bright. They sell freezers to the eskimos in their spare time. 9-11 was a terrible thing that happened. Some say that the loss of life and all the destruction was a distrac...

 

The Truth About The World We Now Live In

As the truth about the world we now live in keeps trickling out it gets more scary. Way back in 2015 Barack and Modern patented a vaccine for COVID 19. Our government helped develop what they tell us is a vaccine, but is actually a bioweapon. If it...

 

HONORING MY BROTHER MYRON

I will start by saying that we have received numerous calls, texts, emails, messages and letters thanking us for the article we put in the paper. Myron's eldest son, who was a Nurse Supervisor in the Covid ward in a hospital in North Carolina,... Full story

 

"Come On Man!!"

When watching some of our esteemed politicians argue to do away with the filibuster it is good humor to watch the same ones argue to keep it. Whether you win or lose but how you play the game has no place in politics. It is all about absolute power a...

 

A Word of Caution

Mr. and Mrs. Iverson’s letter to the editor in last week’s paper was more than a little concerning. First of all, let me say that I have compassion for both of you, and all those who have lost loved ones during the Christmas season. I’m sorry... Full story

 

Is That The Best You Can Do?

Recently on June 26, 2021 I fell off the roof of my house, 16 feet high. My wife called an ambulance, eventually after 30 minutes they arrived, slow. I live three miles west of Ross. The EMTs arrived without a backboard, without a collar. The male...
