The bison turned quickly, ready to charge. The two feet of snow didn’t slow its powerful hooves but rather kicked up a rooster-tail of shiny ice crystals into the cold winter air, highlighting the bison’s efforts. What was surprising was how quickly the pack of wolves turned around to evade …
We would like to thank the many firefighters and first responders who worked through the night, early on Tuesday, Feb. 16, in temperatures more than 20 degrees below zero, to control and extinguish the fire that destroyed our machine shop.
Are you feeling overwhelmed in any areas of your life? If you’re like many people, the stress of what’s going on in the world, and maybe in your life too, has contributed to feelings of being overwhelmed.
Have you heard that old song where Johnny Lee sings, “I’m lookin’ for love in all the wrong places”? He sings about the importance of finding love.
Student loans — it was the way to get ahead by getting that higher education, meaning better paying jobs, which also mean that paying off those student loans would be fairly easy, unless you fall on hard times, as we have had this past year.

Are you feeling satisfied with yourself and your life? We got to thinking about this because it’s so easy to compare yourself to someone else. We were looking through social media and noticed all the people baking beautiful breads. We felt bad because that was a goal of ours and the flour is…
What goes through your mind when someone talks about the ABCs? Perhaps it brings you back to before you started school and were encouraged to learn the ABCs. The ABCs often refer to the basics of something.
The recent trend from "big tech" to silence targeted voices is an affront to our liberties guaranteed by the First Amendment. The very notion of striking back because of a difference in political opinion is contrary to the core of our democracy.

How has 2020 been for you? It’s the end of the year, and what a year it’s been! It reminds us of the opening paragraph by Charles Dickens in his book, "A Tale of Two Cities," “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was…
