What Happened? The Brawl of the Wild was won by MSU last Saturday afternoon. The score was 31 to 23. I had predicted that the Griz would win the Brawl as they have the better team or so I thought. Anyway, had the Griz won, they would be off to the...

I have some elk steaks in the freezer that a friend gave me. Now, let me tell you that in the circles I run in, elk steak is akin to lobster for tasting wonderful. I know of more than one family who gets an elk every year just so they can have elk...

In my jaded youth, my family and I had lots of fishing and hunting cabins. You know because you read about one or another several times a year. One of the biggest drawbacks to our hunting camps was that usually they were one room log structures and h...

 

My Answer

Q: I don’t understand myself. Sometimes I believe very strongly in Jesus and feel close to Him, but then it all fades away, and I’m filled with all kinds of doubts. Why can’t I have a strong faith, like some of my friends do? A: The most...

Lots of good football to watch these days. I have to mention Big Sandy who stunned everyone last weekend when they beat Geraldine 30 to 22. Maybe Big Sandy is upward bound once again. It has been a long dry spell for the Pioneers. I got to watch the...
