  • Elusive happiness
    Wednesday, June 21, 2017 1:00 AM
    Thoughts, feelings, impressions and waves of emotional euphoria: they blow through my mind like a cool morning breeze. Lines from old songs I’ve heard many times long ago; they are still there and come back to me from time to time. As I sing them to myself they rekindle the joyful feeling, the experience of life as it was in that time period. I can relive and savor my many happy moments. My memory is like a complete library of film in full audio, video, cinemascope brilliance at my disposal.
  • Comey don’t play that
    Wednesday, June 21, 2017 1:00 AM
    Millions of Americans watched transfixed as James Comey testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee last week, and no, that’s not an oxymoron. To say the reaction was mixed is like intimating that pillowcases stuffed with live eels are not conducive to long naps.
  • Disengaging with Cuba
    Wednesday, June 21, 2017 1:00 AM
    President Obama’s engagement with Cuba was one of his administration’s success stories. The policy shift was based on the entirely realistic as well as humanitarian assessment that permanent estrangement deepens enmity, isolates two peoples and separates families, reduces opportunities for improvement in the quality of life in Cuba, inhibits the two-way flow of information, and prevents cooperation on common problems. 
  • Make hay when the sun shines
    Tuesday, June 20, 2017 1:00 AM
    It almost never fails, if you want rain just cut some hay. The past couple of weeks was no exception, many farmers in the area had wheat and alfalfa hay cut and then we received almost 0.5 inches of rain on June 11th in the Lovelock area. 
  • Friends don’t let friends talk politics
    Tuesday, June 20, 2017 1:00 AM
    This last presidential election was so dirty and dishonest it was sickening to most good folks. In my short lifetime of eighty six years, I have not seen anything like it. In past, there was lots of infighting and dirty politics between political parties and candidates. This time there were “think tanks” of mean minded people making up malicious lies, to defame the opposing candidate. In the private sector, one could sue for defamation of character for such tactics. But today it is considered smart politics to lie about your opponent. Anything goes, honesty has been trashed.
  •  Summer Shoes
    Friday, June 16, 2017 1:00 AM
    What goes thump, thump, thump squish-thump, thump, thump squish? Nah, not going to tell you just yet. Rather let’s delve into the world of foot coverings we wear during the all too swiftly flowing summer months. Like flip flops.
  • Teens’ summer  jobs becoming thing of the past
    Friday, June 16, 2017 1:00 AM
    I learned how to keep golf balls from bashing me in my shins.
    That was the most important skill a kid could learn at the driving range where I worked. I was in the eighth grade. The lousy job paid only $1 per hour.
    Though I usually picked golf balls early in the morning before the golfers arrived, sometimes I worked the evening shift. I’d put a big cage over my shoulders and head and pick golf balls while dozens of golfers tried to bean me.
  • Going to the mountain
    Tuesday, June 13, 2017 1:00 AM
    My first full time job on leaving high school was in a hospital. I worked as an orderly, (a go-for), on a male ward caring for medical and surgical patients. I found it an interesting job and I liked helping people. Later on, after I got out of the military, I returned to working in hospitals in varying positions. Back then there were not such strict requirements for training and certificates as there are today. If you were willing to do the work then you could learn through experience. I worked as an emergency room attendant, assisted in the intensive care unit and also in surgery. I even did a long stint on the night shift in the psych ward. One of the few procedures I did not participate in was delivering babies!
  • Comey the 'Leaking Caped Crusader' exonerates Trump
    Sunday, June 11, 2017 1:00 AM
    James Comey is a victim of his own self-perception.

    Superman, he is not, although his June 8 testimony suggests he sees himself that way. A mild-mannered kind of guy, who maybe thought his former job as FBI Director was just an extension of his superhero responsibility to expose corruption and fight for “truth, justice and the American way.”
  • U.S. Ag Needs Common Sense Regulatory Reform
    Sunday, June 11, 2017 1:00 AM
    In mid-May, a Senate committee advanced its version of the Regulatory Accountability Act, a bill that will benefit U.S. agriculture by making federal agencies more accountable and transparent in rule-making.
