  • Pastor Unterseher Returning to Malta

    Jan 10, 2024

    Jan 10, 2024

    Dear Editor and PCN Readers: To the group of people who anonymously gave the VFW Auxiliary a letter on their feelings on the Veterans Day dinner, we would like to address some of your issues. 1) As far as the menu goes, we do not know who is a diabetic or not. We can not plan meals around everyone's health issues. We all have different ones. But on the other hand, you know if you are a diabetic or not; and if you can’t have two starches, then don’t eat one. 2) As far as it being crowded in the serving area, tables were already set up for us...

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Jan 10, 2024

    While packing up my hunting gear at the end of the season I realized Dot’s e-collar was switched on, the green light still blinking feebly. I turned it off and started to put it back in its box then realized I might need it again before next fall. Commonly referred to as a “shock” collar, it’s what I use to keep Dot in range, an electronic leash of sorts. Among the options on the controller are two small buttons for tone and vibrate, and a larger one that administers an electric shock. I call...
