Feir and Wit: Upcoming Election Causing Heat

October 22, 2012

With the upcoming election, things are getting heated – even on social networking sites. Tweets, statuses and every other kind of post are filled with sarcasm, support and opposition.

There are three parties you may belong to on these sites; Republican, Democrat or the Annoyed Indifferents.

To me, the annoyed, “indifferent” party members are hiding – hiding from judgment and opposition. They want a little attention, like their outspoken friends, so they post updates that hold an opinion.

Blonde On The Prairie: A Few Thoughts About Feeling Frazzled

October 19, 2012

Some days I get so rattled and frazzled and hurried. I get that way so much that I have to check the dryer twice to make sure the cat didn’t crawl in before I push the “start” button. It seems I always remember I forgot to put the clothes from the washer into the dryer the night before the morning I need what is in the washer. The problem is that the clothes have been in the washer, already washed for two or three days and so I have to re-wash them before I can dry them. Frazzling. The washer and dryer live in the scary basement. Most farmers have barn cats. I have basement cats.

City Commission Discusses Valley Recycling Finances

October 18, 2012

During the Valley City city commission’s regular meeting Monday, Marcia and Adam Faul of Valley Recycling asked the commission for ideas to help finance their struggling business.

The rates for cardboard, their main source of income, have dropped significantly and Marcia said the business is barely keeping afloat.
