Message to our young people: We see you, we support you


(Editor’s note: For Genevieve) Too often we forget to tell others that we care for them. This is especially true when it comes to the young adults within our communities. When these young people are still in school we tell them not to give up on their dreams. We help them with homework, we help them get to school, we […]

Lawn and garden tips


Greetings everyone and thanks again for your continued following and support of local journalism. I am a far cry from being a journalist but in this past year I have learned so much from those who are. This week I will cover a topic that is often the most overlooked subject in landscaping, but is such an important issue, now […]

Politicians are people, too


Thousands of veterans will return to school in the next few weeks, and it is important that they understand and utilize their GI Bill benefits in the pursuit of their education. While the GI Bill covers nearly every imaginable school related expense from tuition, books, fees, and even a living stipend, we understand that utilizing this benefit can be confusing […]

Prairie Doc Perspectives: Life lessons



Sometimes, life has lessons for us that we don’t truly appreciate until much later.

The Donald Trump nightmare


By now it is an established fact that Donald Trump may, or may not, accept the results of the presidential election. He will definitely accept a win, and he “will have to see” about accepting a defeat. If he is soundly defeated, as the current polls suggest, he may leave the White House quietly.

Trump’s Occupy Portland Gambit


Federal troops in camouflage, without identification, heavily armed, uncommunicative, roving in unmarked cars, seizing and incarcerating peaceful protesters without charging them. Acting without invitation. No reporting of this deployment to any state authority. No official justification of the Constitutional or other basis for dispatching these troops. What is this: Chile under Pinochet? A reenactment of Costa Gavras’ “Z”? Turkey under […]
