But one of the most important lessons we learn is humility.

From Pipi's Pasture: An animal’s Christmas list

Recently, I reviewed “Winter Barn,” a children’s picture book, written and illustrated by Peter Parnall. It is a nonfiction book about a barn that serves as a refuge for a variety of animals, both domesticated and wild. One thought leads to another so thinking about the makeshift homes animals choose in winter made me wonder — if animals could make wish lists for the Christmas season, what would they include? Just for fun consider the following, keeping in mind both domesticated and wild animals.

Thoughtful parenting: From tantrums, tears to reflection, learning

When we think of discipline, we often think, “Aaaargh! My child is acting so spoiled and out of control. I’d better get a handle on this with some strong discipline!” Then, we try to figure out the appropriate punishment or consequences to help our child get with the program.

History in Focus: Murder at the haystacks

On January 6, 1931, all of Moffat County was shocked by the double homicide of long-time resident and prominent cattle rancher Joseph Jones, and his employee Earl Hopkins at the hands of EJ Farmer, just two miles north of Axial Basin.

From Pipi’s Pasture: The country school Christmas program

Since I’ve gotten to be an adult, I’ve tried to “bring up” the same wonderful feeling of anticipation that I used to have when we kids got ready for the Christmas program at the Morapos School. That was the country school that we community kids attended through grade eight. And the feeling of anticipation?
