  • Conversations with God

    Updated Jun 20, 2019

    Hello God, it's me, Mara: You know, Lord, here’s a thought about the Wilderness, the Boondocks, and the Backcountry. While we’re all busy traveling life’s demanding way, we can’t help but notice where the forest fires have ravaged the countryside; we notice that there are no lovely flowers, we see dead pine and fir trees, we also see a few other trees that are just standing there with lifeless limbs outstretched for help. However, we look around – there is no help – no birds – no green grass, it’s all been consumed, all t...

  • My mother's garden

    Bill Lavell|Updated Jun 19, 2019

    I think that I might have written before about my mother’s garden when we were growing up in Ekalaka. In a recent Eagle, I saw Lois Lambert’s story about their garden and how it was so late getting in so I decided to write something else.

It seems as if they talked about getting potatoes in on Washington’s birthday Isn’t that awful ear...

  • Hat Tips

    Dean Meyer|Updated Jun 19, 2019

    Hello, We started cutting hay over the weekend. I believe we are the first ones in the field again this year. I just do it to upset Russ, one of my neighbors. The forecast is for rain later in the week. Most ranchers are going to wait until this weather “event” is past. I figure if it rains, it won’t hurt the hay. We need to rake it before we bale anyway. And when I feed in the winter, the cows eat what I put out, whether it has been rained on or not. I’ve often said that North Dakota has only two seasons. “Feeding hay seaso...
