Cold? It is 'smoking season'

It’s like I blinked and then all of a sudden winter happened. I found out very quickly upon moving here in 2012 that Montana Weather doesn’t play by the same rules as other states that I have...

 

Respect to Lavar

One of the most outspoken characters in sports lately has been Lavar Ball, the father of Los Angeles Lakers’ point Guard Lonzo Ball. Lavar, a former college basketball player has been a pivotal figure in the basketball world for the past couple of...

 

Box Elder Bug-out

Every once in a while I run out of things to write about. When that happens, divine intervention can come through at times. This time intervention came from a flick of the finger, as I cleanly...

 

Terrible introduction

So, my wife left me. That sounded bad. I just meant she went on a two-day seminar to Billings. This means I was left alone with my three-year-old, which I have to admit was a little bit of a daunting...

 

My fastball is horrendous

I don’t claim to be a rocket scientist. But every once in a while, you gotta use what the good Lord gives you. As many know by now on Monday, October 2, our county and Hill County got blasted by a snowstorm. In the opening hours of that snowstorm...

 

They don't love you

If you have a Facebook page, there is a good chance that you have been bumming me out. No, not because I am a liberal snowflake, but because people, many of which I know from here or anywhere else I... Full story

 

A peaceful discussion

I think we could all learn something from kids. I don’t claim to represent all of African Americans but a couple of weeks ago I had the chance to share what I thought about current events at a local...

 

From failure to features

I had the honor to discuss a column I wrote a few weeks ago with some students at a local high school. It was a privilege and an honor to field the many questions that were thrown my way. One of...

 

I'm not a road warrior

When my wife wanted to squeeze in a drive to Tennessee and then Missouri to our vacation I reverted back to being a two-year-old. To me there was nothing appealing about spending 60 hours of precious...

 

Love God and love your neighbor

As a lot of people know, I am from the Chicago-land area, so I can’t comprehend the southerner’s take on Confederate flags and monuments. (Before you continue, re-read the previous sentence twice...

 

The bag of corn that changed me

I have a love hate relationship with corn. Yes the grain. Growing up in the suburbs around Chicago, I have seen my share of corn fields. I have been on road trips throughout the state of Illinois and...

School is coming

When local summer camps hit, it is a fresh reminder that school is right around the corner. Last Wednesday I visited the North Country Basketball Camp as well as the Mustang Football Camp. Both camps...

I'm not one for trends

I am not often the one to follow certain trends but I caved and bought a fidget spinner. The funny thing that I have noticed as I get older I have often looked at some of the trends that the younger...

A lot has changed since 22

Before the 2017 Gospel Jamboree, I did not think I could have anything in common with anyone in the Bluegrass community. Boy, was I wrong. From a musical aspect, I had never played Bluegrass music...

I dream of potato salad

My parents came through for a few days. My real parents. You have no idea how awkward it is when people assume that my parents are around Malta when in actuality it was just another African American...

The Drive of Shame

Get your mind out of the gutter. It wasn’t that kind of drive. I blew a tire for the first time. I admit I should’ve seen it coming, knowing that my tires had struggled to hold air in the winter...

Halfway through 2017

A customer came in and noticed a Happy New Year sign at the PCN, reminding me that we are about halfway through 2017. This sign also reminded me of how a new year is typically stereotyped as a point...

You will be missed

Some sad news hit my family the other day. My godmother passed away and I have been pretty bummed out. I am thankful that my parents are still alive and that we never needed to use her for finding a...

Now I own a tractor

Somehow, something that was a tedious and sometimes strenuous chore became an experience that I never saw coming. My wife and I had been talking about upgrading our mower that cost me a whopping $35...

They call me 'Inspector Bibbs'

Sometimes being a photographer takes you weird places. I received a phone call from a loan company earlier this year to become an inspec-tor. Initially I was annoyed that an out of state company...

Give the kid a chance

Man is it tough to be a Bears fan. For those that missed it, in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Bears originally had the third pick of the draft. With so much talent of defense and our...

A Cubs fan gave me a teary eye

Sometimes social media videos can bring out all kinds of emotions in people. No, this isn’t about our President, but it is linked to America’s past time. Now that I’ve cleaned up my Facebook...

Cleaning up 'my' mess

My dog Brucey gave me a friendly reminder of why I need to clean up after myself. Last week, my wife bought me an early Father’s Day gift that was two years in the making. It’s no secret that I lo...

Yeah, I don't know the rules

Since moving to Malta, I have been intrigued with the wildlife around the area. I am relieved to say that I have not encountered any predators like wolves or bears yet living in the bustling...
