Country Cousin

This Monday, Do Not Labor...

Labor Day, the final holiday of Summer 2016 is coming up on Monday, Sept. 5. Seems like the Native Americans who measured their lives in summers rather than years had it right. We live, really live, in summertime. The rest of the year is spent either clinging to what's left of summer, or waiting for the next summer to arrive. Summers are what life is all about.

On the other hands, kids going off to school are starting a new year, whether they're going to coll...

Dear Editor:

As a sportsman I am getting concerned about the continuing efforts of the US Congress to sell or transfer our Federal public lands.

School Days Are Coming!...

Sadly, Summer is winding down. By next week at this time the kids will either be back in school or seriously getting ready to go there. We'll still have Labor Day weekend to look forward to, and some great community festivals are coming up, but they are more Fall events than Summer ones. Glad the muggy heat seems to be over, but also sort of sad that sweltering season is probably done for this year.

Editor:

Re: What do you want to follow? I believe that one of our choices in this election is between "as if" and "what is". What I mean is that the Republican Party seems to be acting "as if" the country is still in a serious recession when all major economist and economic indicators show "what is" " a country that has recovered except in limited pockets. These exceptions are true in the best of times dues to long term shifts such as in energy and demand. The Republicans act "as if" President Obama was responsible ...
