Those 5 million are a mere .1% of the population! This is because they were born in a Leap Year, on February 29th. They are known as "leapers" or...

  • The Endangered Species Act is Broken

    Feb 28, 2024

  • Our Spring Break Will Be Different Than Normal

    Parker Heinlein, Outdoors Columnist|Feb 28, 2024

    It’s that time of year when Barb and I head south. By the end of February, we’ve had enough snow and cold. Warmer climes begin to call.

Eventually, however, that trip became too long, Florida too crowded, and too many days on the road to get there. We began spending time in the California desert about five years ago. While it lacked the fis...
