New dad all over again

Normally when you are a “veteran,” it means that you have experience with a particular career or event and you should know what you are doing. On Friday, March 30, Susan and I welcomed our second...

 

Out of thin air

News does travel fast in a small town. Sometimes that news is definitely fake. As of Monday, March 13, I have had no intentions of quitting my job here at the PCN or mov-ing, or anything like that. But twice last week and once the week before...

Can't wait for Spring

This has been a brutal winter and I am glad I have experienced it with you. Going around town last week, I have talked to quite a few people who have told me that this was the roughest winter Montana...

Will I ever lift again?

I was supposed to start my New Year’s Resolution today. Of course, at the time I am writing this, it is the first day of March. I wasn’t in a good spot to start working out again on the first of...

 

The Flu or Zoo season?

I have been getting a kick out of how much PJ enjoys animals. The little guy has been sick for about a week now and that has been really sad to see. We went to the clinic twice last week, because when your three-year-old has thrown up a couple of...

 

That was nasty

I am snobbish about my coffee. My love for the dark, heart pounding drink started when I was young and Starbucks was not yet a household name. In those days, I had no idea how to make a cup of...

 

Not bad at all PCH

My wife and I were on our way to Glasgow to have a look at our unborn child and somehow emergency room situations came up. We were out of town this past fall and a medical emergency came up where a...

 

Clearing some space

INFO I cleaned out our medicine cabinet the other day. I remember when Susan and I first became home owners many people saying that you accumulate a lot of stuff over the years. In cleaning out old...

 

Isn't that nice?

PJ has never been a cuddler. Maybe I had been holding him wrong. When you think of a baby, you think of a small human that wants to be held every day. Or at least that has been my interpretation. That...

 

It's been a while

I appreciate the patience. As you all know our editor was out for a few weeks, so I had the chance to gain valuable experience as a short term newspaper editor. I am proud of how our short-handed...

 

We are Thankful

We had a reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving. I have to admit I am not completely a fan of sonograms as far as checking in on developing babies, but we had one the day before Thanksgiving. I get that they like to make sure that the baby is...

 

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...
