NFL players' behavior disgust me
Over the last season and especially these last few weeks, I've given this a lot of thought. With all the chaos brought on by Mother nature alone, and all the events taking place all over the world not just in our own backyards, the NFL players and the way they've acted as a whole...

Letter: My experience with an act of kindness
I was shopping at Shopko and came out with my purchases in the cart and started walking to my car. As I got to my car, a boy came up to me and said, "can I help you?" He was probably 6 or 7. He then opened my car door, put in the bags, took my cart and put it in the cart garage. What...

Letter: Random act of kindness
I want to bring attention to this random act of kindness on the part of a young woman in the parking lot at Service Foods in Perham last week. I had just finished bringing my groceries to my car and placed them in the back. I opened the door, climbed into my car and put the key into...

Letter: Desert Eagle
I don't know a lot of stuff, plus I seem to have reached a point cognitively where the new stuff that I want to learn doesn't stick well. That likely means one of two things: First, maybe I really don't want to know it, or second, the grey matter isn't working like it used to. Or...
