"Changing Direction"

 

Growing up on the farm as kids, the only thing we knew was making a living by farming. It was not a hard life, but it was a lot of work. Dad was the boss and I think he thought the boys would follow him in that business.

When I was in high school things took a change. WWII started which changed the direction in what I was going to do. The military started drafting young men into service. In order to get into the branch of service I wanted, I joined the U.S. Navy....

Lived in Waynedale for 45 years. My parents, (E.W. Dafforn), lived there. I am still interested in what goes on there. Keep up the good work.

Cancel Mrs. Waynedale or have her clean up her act. My grandchildren read The Waynedale News. Her articles do not make me want to eat at the places she writes about. Afraid I might run into her and her tubby hubby. He will be the one wearing the bib. Otherwise it is a...

HOMETOWN VIEWS

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you I've eaten too much over the holidays and I am at the point that I can't stand to look at rich food. I think I gained about twenty-five pounds the way my girdle fits. It's straining at the staves and I'm afraid someone is going to get hurt if it ever decides to let go and explode.

We decided to go on a diet...

AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

I was once told that it takes all kinds of people to make the world go round, and I didn't really understand what that meant until I reached high school. I have often wondered how my life would be different if I pursued different interests. What if I was an athlete instead of on the newspaper staff? What if I was in cheerleading instead of show choir? In Catch Me If You Can, a boy not much older than myself asks how his life would be different if he was a pilot, a doctor, or a lawyer, and he...

EDITORIAL

Every time I pick up a paper or turn on the TV I'm reading about or listening to politicians tell how broke thestate/city/county/DNR/license bureau is. Take your pick. They raise our property taxes, our sales taxes, the fee on our hunting licenses, the fee on our fishing licenses, the fee on our driving licenses (bet you didn't know about that one), and then they close our campgrounds, cut our big game (deer) limit to one buck per season, cut the trout possession limit in half (from 10 to 5...

ON NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS AND OTHER PROMISES

 

'Tis the season to make all those annual New-Year's resolutions... you know, the promises you make to yourself to exercise more, go on a diet to lose 40 pounds, improve your mind by taking a class, read Scripture daily, attend Mass more often, pray the rosary, the list goes on.

Not that there's anything wrong with any of those pledges, but how come before the first month of the new year draws to a close on January 31, most of our resolutions have...
