  • Complete Failure in Afghanistan

    Chris McDaniel, Courier Publisher|Aug 18, 2021

    After almost 20-years in Afghanistan, the United States is nearly out of the quagmire. But with the now stale mantra of a risk for "terrorism," our country needs to be careful not to get sucked back into that black hole. I was but a young lad when America and the United Kingdom launched Operation Enduring Freedom on Oct. 7, 2001 following the attack on the Twin Towers in New York. That operation was absolutely justified - furious retribution for the many lives lost on Sept. 11. The subsequent... Full story

  • Vaccine Mandates Violate Rights

    Joe Bialek, Cleveland, Ohio|Aug 18, 2021

    It has been common knowledge for years that all major developing countries have possessed the ability to conduct germ warfare. The Wuhan crisis is no exception. Was a virus created in the lab and deliberately leaked into the local wet markets for experimentation on the people of Wuhan? This is totally consistent with China's poor record on civil rights and it's complete lack of concern for all of the Chinese people. The virus created in Wuhan is by no means a poor reflection on all Asians... Full story

  • Corn, Cooking, Combining

    Mary Honrud, Special to the Courier|Aug 18, 2021

    The corn is starting to bear a few smallish ears. While they're on the small side, skinny and short, the flavor is big. The stalks are really tall so the size of the ears is a disappointment. The live trap is set between two rows, where it will be somewhat easy for me to drag it out should it fulfill its duty and be occupied by a heavy, snarling raccoon. This year, I'm shucking the corn inside the house and disposing of the husks and silk in the garbage. I'm hoping the lack of good corn aroma...

We liked visiting with them at Shady Rest as well as so many others who frequent the park. Ron made friends through out the sites. A kind of good will ambassador of Rvers. He would show up in the neighboring rv spots sort of unexpectedly...

    Email etiquette. It’s simple, right? Tap out something relevant, informative or witty on your favorite screen-toting device and fire it over the internet to whomever’s eyes you hope it might reach. Signed, sealed, delivered. Are there really pitfalls to such a well-established method of communicating? Well actually… Email has been with us for a long while, now. The first one was sent way back in 1971 after all. Since that very early test message, we’ve embraced electronic mail to the tune of around 300 billion emails per day. Per day! It’s a...

    Wade Sundby, Glasgow Schools Superintendent|Aug 18, 2021
