From Pipi's Pasture: Feeding round bales

A couple of weeks ago we started feeding round bales here at Pipi’s Pasture. For the past few years we have been running out of small bales by about this time in the season and have to resort to a new feeding routine. We continue to use small bales for the corral. The bales weigh between 900 and 1,000 pounds — big, indeed.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Get Out’ an eye-opening look at race that evokes laughs, screams

It was about 50 years ago that “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” was considered well ahead of its time in its depiction of interracial love. Decades later, a movie like “Get Out” makes a counterpoint that’s… well, hard to ignore.

Tim Kjera: Vote no on tax measure

I received the mail-in ballot for the upcoming general election April 4 and was surprised to find that the Use Tax, Sales Tax increase and Tabor exemption were all combined into one ballot issue 1A. Each of these items is important to voters and to lump them all into one vote is nothing but a scam. If our city council will not allow us to vote on them individually, then I believe we need to vote "no."

Gene Bilodeau: Joe bird is your man

Like many of you, I’ve been fortunate enough to know Joe Bird. While living in Craig, I came to know Joe as my neighbor across the street, a fellow member of city council and a fellow Rotarian, but most of all, as a friend. I know Joe to be a man of integrity.

Prather's Pick: Another Irish tale

This week’s column reviews yet another Irish tale in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. It’s “Daniel O’Rourke,” a picture book for children by Gerald McDermott. As with last week’s book, this one was also published some years ago. It’s an older book but charming nonetheless.
