Blonde on the Prairie: Carp to carp walleting

June 15, 2012

You’re reading these words so that means you have one. Some of you have more than one because that’s how your mama rolls. You may have had the good one or you could have been stuck with the bad one. Whichever one you got you’ve been affected. This isn’t a riddle though it is beginning to sound like one. Simply, I’m talking about dads.

I figure now is as good a time as any for a little Blonde on the Prairie therapy session. Go ahead and sit down on my couch. Get comfortable if you’d like to.

Shut your eyes and say the word. Ready?

“Dad.”

June 15, 2012

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster,” said actor Ray Liotta as he immortalized mobster-turned-FBI informant Henry Hill in the 1990 Martin Scorsese film “Goodfellas.”

Pitching struggles in Post 60's home opening loss

June 15, 2012

The Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team tried plenty of different players on the pitcher’s mound in Thursday’s double header losses to Kindred.
But no matter who was there, the problem was virtually the same — the pitchers struggled to find early strikes and later walked batters after falling behind in counts.
“Leading with the strike and getting ahead right away is big in baseball,” coach Jason Beilke said. “When you’re ahead 0-1, it’s a lot easier than being behind 1-0.”
