  • The Real Memorial Day

    May 25, 2022

    Dear Editor, What is the real Memorial Day ? When ? Why? Where? Memorial Day came about during our Civil War. Southern ladies wanted to honor the fallen soldiers. In 1868 General Logan picked May 30 as Memorial Day. His reasoning was there had been no major battles on that day during the Civil War. For these reasons I believe May 30 is the Real MEMORIAL DAY! Our Memorial Day program will be on May 30, at 10 a.m. on KLTZ. American Flags will be placed at the cemetery at 9 a.m. Saturday May 28....

  • Are We Tough Enough to Get Beyond the Weather?

    May 25, 2022

    Changing the Narrative on Rural Mental Health Dear Editor, We got a call this week from a friend and listener who said, "Maybe you ought to be careful about getting into this mental health stuff. My Mom, used to say, 'buck up, buttercup.'" Fair enough. There are days when we do have to buck up and go feed the cows in a foot of snow. And it just takes a little push to get us headed out the door. Sometimes we do have to "buck up" and do the hard stuff. I'll tell you from my personal experience...

  • Hauling Water

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|May 25, 2022

    There are some of us that remember the days of hauling water, not just for drinking but for all household necessities. You learned early to conserve that commodity. Needless to say, you didn’t use an automatic washing machine or dishwasher, nor did you turn on the faucet at the sink and let it run while you searched for something in the Frigidaire. I can recall names of a few persons that delivered water to folks that did not have useable water. These people, us being one of those, usually had a cistern that held the water that these fellows h...

  • Green, Green Grass (Of Home)

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|May 25, 2022

    The lovely rains have really set off lots of new growth. The lawn has had its first mowing and needs another. The wheat is coming up nicely, even though we’re not quite finished with seeding as I write this. It should all be in the ground by the time you read this. The weeds are also coming up such that I’m weeding the garden rows as I plant more of my desired seeds. The beets, carrots, and Swiss chard were planted right after I wrote last week’s column (before the rain/snow mix). Last Saturday I put in radish and onion seeds. Next up will...
