I was not sure if I was reading a fairy tale or not last Sunday in The Frederick News-Post. Was Jan Gardner trying to portray herself as a fiscal conservative, when in fact we know she supported Barack Obama for president and supports Obamacare, which is the worst piece of irresponsible fiscal legislation ever passed.
For the first time in a few days I wasn’t awakened in the early morning hours at 2:30, 2:45 and 3 o’clock by the missile alerts from the latest iPhone APP. I don’t know what APP stands for but it works, at least until the battery ran out of juice.

The Star-Spangled Banner is the only national anthem to end with a question: "O say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"
Malta, Montana – The day started off bright and sunny. I applied my insect repellent early and went outside to water the garden, herbs and flowers. The plains were unbelievably beautiful that morning.
For the past week, I’ve been inundated with instant rocket reports slamming into Israel. The iPhone rings every few seconds that another town has been hit.
Several hours in my day are devoted to newspapers. That’s how it goes. A free subscription for The Frederick News-Post, the rest must be paid for: Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, New York Times and Westminster Times.
Walmart* is clearly the unequalled titan of retail. Producer of $473 billion dollars in revenue in fiscal year 2014 alone, it remains unequaled as major suction for the US dollar. About $5 a share in value is documented. My recent consumer experience told me that they are not plowing much of that back into the customer experience!
The sheriff made the wrong decision, again. He’s wound up on The Frederick News-Post’s front page once more. His good-old-boys will certainly excuse him; they agree with him.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley isn’t making nice with the man whom he helped elect to the presidency in 2012. Governor O’Malley – who raised over $1 million toward re-electing President Obama – openly chastised the president and his administration for looking for ways to return the tens of thousands of illegal unaccompanied minors and adults who have come over the border recently. He wants illegals here – just not in Maryland.
Immigration, a solvable problem, already extensively studied, with clear, sensible recommendations already written, continues endlessly unresolved, as our present leaders dance around it, political gain remaining foremost in their little minds.
Can there be any doubt the matter of illegal immigrants, now described as undocumented people, continues to exacerbate and befuddle governments all over the place?
Big Sky, Montana – The drive from Bozeman to Big Sky took about an hour and a half with myself, Suriani my wife, my with-child daughter Mary, my 3-year-old old son Dzul and my granddaughter, at 16 months, Leeilia. We had quite a crew!
“Hope you have been well. I do not know what I have done to upset you. I have always considered you a friend and always been there if you needed me. I do have a very thick skin, but some of what you have written has hurt very much. I do not know if that was a goal or not, but I am human and I have feelings.
The headline blared, “Middletown held for ransom – again.” Nope. Blaine’s Board of County Commissioners was not in the hot seat this time.
