It has always intrigued me that Jesus, when encountering someone in need, in response to their “cry” for help would consistently ask “What do you want me to do for you?”
When I was a kid growing up on the ranch, our family learned to “make do.” It might have been using a jar-sealing rubber — a circular piece of rubber used to seal canning jars — to hold a sole on a pair of everyday shoes. Or it might have been piling thick telephone books — the Denver kind — big storage cans or anything else we could find on top of a stool in order to reach the ceiling when we painted or cleaned.
On Tuesday, Dollie Frentress, of Craig, called and said, “You’re going to get a kick out of this,” and I did. I hope you do, too.
This year, a city that prides itself on always having the right look, the right sound and most importantly the right feel finally gets its due after decades of going unacknowledged. And, if you believe that buildup, you’ll love everything about “La La Land.”
I should quit thumbing through the magazines in doctors’ waiting rooms. The out-of-date publications harbor germs from sneezing, sick people and tempt me to read stuff I’d ignore if I weren’t trying to distract myself from the reason I’m in a doctor’s office.
Whether gun violence is actually on the rise, we’re seeing more of it in the news than ever before, and with that comes an even greater division of the right and left about the place of guns in society — especially with a new president whose campaign was endorsed by the National Rifle Association.
This week’s book is a “must have” for parents — and for teachers too. It’s a resource book with a list of over 600 children’s book titles from around the world, all recommended by the author.
This week our local high school is serving our community by raising money for various charities and good causes with various dress-up days throughout the week to muster up some midwinter spirit. The week will culminate in Boy’s and Girl’s Basketball hosting Roaring Fork and a Sadie Hawkins dance. Monday had girls dressing from the past and boys dressing from the future. As I was trying to figure out what to wear, the future theme got me thinking.
No parent wants to believe his or her child has endured a traumatic experience.
"David Gelernter, fiercely anti-intellectual computer scientist, is being eyed for Trump's science adviser." — Washington Post, Jan. 18. Um. Well, huh.
I remember when calf #65 was born. According to the calving record book it was April 9, 2016. I wasn’t expecting my 20-year-old-plus cow, Ucky, to calve last year. I figured that she was too old. Wrong!
This week’s mincemeat recipes were contributed by Pat Pearce, of Craig. She found them in a recipe box belonging to Claudia Pearce, her mother-in-law. It is interesting to note that some of the old recipes use “mince meat,” two words rather than “mincemeat” that is used today.
Each year, hundreds of movies hit theaters — some awful, most mediocre and a select few features that will be remembered for years to come. Without too much fanfare, here are the top 10 movies of 2016 as selected by The Bock’s Office.
Members of Congress began confirmation hearings for President-elect Trump’s Cabinet nominees this month. Regrettably, some lawmakers — spurred on by K Street lobbyists, public smear campaigns, and the media — signaled their intent to sink some of the appointments even before the gavel called these sessions to order. Coloradans, like all Americans, deserve better from their national representatives. And Betsy DeVos deserves a fair and timely confirmation hearing.
Friday is the day. Donald Trump will be sworn in as the new president of the United States of America.
