Thanksgiving Day mistaken identity

Dear Editor, This happened half a lifetime ago. I had just moved into a 8x27’ trailer. I was not there long until I had a phone put in. I was blessed with a phone number that was easily confused and quite often I would get calls for other people...

 

Where is the beef...from?

Dear Editor, Where’s the beef…from? No one wants to be misled, but it is happening every day at your meat counter. “Product of USA” is now gracing your beef and pork labels, even though your beef and pork are quite possibly not from an...

She's not going anywhere

Things have gotten a bit quieter around my house. It took a while, however, before I noticed. Living with four dogs is no simple undertaking. They’re loud. They bark to go out. They bark to come...

 

Oh, the memories

I am not too fond of moving. And by moving, I mean moving my personal belonging from one building to another. As many of you know, we switched offices a week or so ago. I knew the day would be coming...

 

The move is official

Apologies for the inappropriately placed opinion column and the disarray that is our new office, two doors down from the last spot, grand opening pending. It is my opinion that things get done in Malt...

It’s time for a change. Of clothes. Of behavior. Of diet. Since the first of September I’ve been hunting more days than not. Now the season is over and there are eight long months to navigate...
