Did you get your taxes filed by April 15 or 16 or 17? Brice filed ours over the computer and the feds and state accepted both. It’s an easy enough project for Brice, but he tends to put it off. If we owed either, it would make sense to keep your...

Hello, I’m not too much into vehicles. I mean I drive them a lot. But I’m not the kind of guy that lines up at the car wash when I get a little dust on a vehicle. I think I inherited that trait from my Grandpa. I don’t think he ever washed a...

I was mentally prepared to compose a series of articles about the weather starting with the day fog settled over Ekalaka most of the day. Then came WIND! That’s right, all caps; the wind deserved them. At 4:00 am, Brice got up to unplug the...

Salesmen and others

Upon reading the latest Sykes-Belltower history in the Eagle, I am reminded once again about the great debt that we owe to women and how important they are in our history and indeed to our present. Two ladies stood out in this story. One was...
