Let me tell you how I got my name as Trojan, ”the little horse that snuck into Sand Wash.” You see, a couple years ago a beautiful grey stallion went missing from Sand Wash. He was on a mission to find himself a mare of his own and maybe the local gals just weren’t interested in him. As the summer wore on not much was thought of the missing grey, after all, there’s lots of grey stallions in Sand Wash. Well, finally one day the missing grey, River, was seen — pretty hefty news coming out of the basin as River had come from afar bringing in a whole new fleet of horses with him.
Calving season has begun at Pipi’s Pasture. I think that calving season is a worrisome time with the uncertainty of weather and the possible complications of calving. But it’s not without its rewards, either. It surely is enjoyable to watch the two new little heifer calves as they run around the pasture and then suddenly plop down for their naps.
This week I tried an experiment, an adaptation of a recipe. The idea came when I read through an August 2016 issue of a little magazine sent through the mail, along with coupons, by King Soopers.
Monday's House Intelligence Committee hearing, billed as the first public inquiry into Russia's election meddling, was a spectacle with an obvious lesson: Offense is easier than defense.
My pretty friend Linda tucked a strand of blonde hair behind her ear and said, “There are too many options; I can’t make myself commit.” She wasn’t talking about choosing an ideal mate, finding her dream home or planning the perfect vacation. She was buying a vacuum. And I understood her frustration.
Besides the time period in which it’s set, “Kong: Skull Island” bears a great deal in common with movies like “Apocalypse Now.” But, though what the quarry characters are after is about the same build as the man who played Walter Kurtz, he’s much less demanding, at least in terms of salary.
I know that readers of Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing” series of books will be happy to learn that his newest book is out, and you can find it at the Craig branch of the Moffat County Libraries.
I grew up playing hockey in the winter and thought the entire world spent their time around an ice sheet during the cold winter months. But, a couple of years ago, my son decided he was going to try wrestling so we traded in the chilly stands of the ice rink for the milder bleachers in gymnasiums with wrestling mat covered floors.
As parents, we don’t want our children to ever feel badly, so we do everything we can to mitigate the situation.
At some point in the next year, Congress will consider legislation to address the needs of America’s infrastructure. In the Natural Resources Committee, we will be considering the ways that this infrastructure bill could help federal land management agencies restore access to public lands and support sound management practices.
This year, the City of Craig is asking voters to approve Referred Measure 1A. If approved, this measure would increase the local sales tax by 1.25 percent on the sales of all tangible personal property and services. The measure would also impose a 3.5 percent use tax on all motor vehicles that are purchased outside of the city limits. There are many questions and opinions surrounding both of the proposed tax increases. The intent of this article is to inform the voter about the difference between use and sales tax. It is up to the voter to determine whether or not the tax increases are necessary or warranted for local community improvements.
Whenever I think about preparing an Easter dinner, I think of strawberries. Spring and strawberries just seem to go together. I usually bake a yellow cake or buy some little cakes and serve them with sugared strawberries and whipped topping. That’s our Easter dinner dessert.
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.
Lent, and the practices that are consistent with that period of time, is not something that is found in the Holy Scriptures, but is considered to be tradition in the history of the Christian Church.
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.
