Parting Shots

Well here we are. It's May and Summer is just around the corner. The school year was fun (note the touch of sarcasm) but, in life, all good things must end. So comes to a close me writing for this newspaper syndication. It was a fun experience, writing for a newspaper such as this one. I have been noticed by people from all around town who have complimented me on my articles and say that they agree with what I have to say, which is cool. I have also had people come up to me and say that I suck and that I wouldn't know a
logical thought if it bit me in the.... anyways that wasn't very cool. But overall this was a great experience.

For my last article I've pieced together small fragments of articles. So here you go.

The Minnesota Twins. It just makes me laugh on how a team of young nobodies can come together to become a team with a great pitching staff which features aces Brad Radke and Eric Milton. The offense is led by third baseman Corey Koskie and first baseman Doug Mienkawitz? or is it Merchlewitz? Miekolwitz? I have no clue how to spell it but he's good, and so are the Twins, as Twins' fans pray that the trend continues.

In other Minnesota sports news, the Rushford-Peterson track and field complex is finally complete and we've even had a meet on it. Personally I have to say it is the sweetest track within driving distance and you would be doing yourself a great favor by going down to watch a track meet in person. We have an Invitational meet on Tuesday May 1st and then the big one, the Southeastern Conference, on Monday May 14th. So if you want to see some of the best athletes in the area compete in the events of running, jumping, and throwing come on down to Rushford and watch.

Can't find the track? It's the big, black, rubberized oval around the football field, can't miss it. That plug should be worth a few letter points (hint, hint Coach Wade).

Do you remember in February when the USS Greenville surfaced directly underneath a Japanese fishing boat killing students and crew members? Well, the US Navy forced the captain of the USS Greenville, Scott Waddle, into early retirement. Waddle escaped being court martialed by his defense that he was merely showing off the speed to surface to the civilian guests aboard the ship.

I truely believe that Waddle should have been court martialed though. I mean if a high school student shows off the speed of his or her car and gets int .....

The first bones belonged to a cow and her unborn baby. I found them near a small wetland by the South Fork of the Root River. I trudged back up the hill to my house carrying a huge pelvis that looked like a primitive mas .....

My father was a mathematical marvel. He could figure stuff out in his head faster and more accurately than anybody I ever knew. I dare say I did not inherit either his good common sense or his ability to figure. That is not .....

“It’s all about roads”

Monday, April 30, 2001

“The only thing the county board is concerned about are roads,” one person commented to me a few weeks ago.

And the way in which she said this implied that this was not necessarily a good thing.
