"Watch a bunch of overdressed or undressed self-absorbed narcissistic pretenders pat each other on the back? I don't even have cable." "You don't have cable?" The class came to attention. It all started a few years back when I got awake, snapped on Fox News and preceded to listen for a full 10 minutes before turning it back off. It was the entire time the television was on all day. I would try to...

    CORA FOX, Policy Associate Center for Rural Affairs|Mar 28, 2019

    Details on President Trump’s 2020 budget were released this month. In an attempt to rein in federal spending, the budget recommends a $3.6 billion cut to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Unfortunately, the proposals set forth in this budget seem far-removed from the realities rural Americans face every day. The budget makes cuts to conservation programs, and proposes elimination of the Conservation Stewardship Program. These recommendations would significantly reduce the ability of farmers to implement conservation practices that address...

    BARB KALBACH, OtherWords.org|Mar 28, 2019

    We’ve got a rural health care emergency on the horizon. Rural hospitals are closing or teetering on the brink of closure at an alarming rate. More than a hundred have closed since 2005 and hundreds more are on life support. Long-term care facilities are vanishing across rural America or being bought up by large corporations who care about profit, not the care of our loved ones. Most rural hospitals have even stopped delivering babies — you’ll need to go to the city for that, so plan ahead. I know firsthand. I’m a registered nurse and...

    As various U.S. House committees gear up for a season of investigations and hearings on President Donald Trump and his administration, a lot of people are worried that progress on the nation’s challenges will grind to a halt. I would argue just the opposite: the wheels of government are turning in favor of accountability. Our system rests squarely on the notion that government officials – whether elected or appointed – need to be accountable to the people they govern. They are responsible for their behavior, their decisions, and the...

    I have kept a journal of my fishing and hunting adventures since I was 17 years old. Some evenings I review these notes, hoping they'll provide some good hints about where I should fish or hunt during the next day or two. March 28's entry from last year is an example. Here, corrected for clarity, is what I wrote last year. "It was 31 degrees this morning when I drove out the 'back road.' It was a little windy, so I thought I might not hear any birds even if they were gobbling. There is not much...

    The two facing pages in the Ideals magazine lying beside me are black, but offsetting the darkness is a bough of tiny green leaves mingling with pink apple blossoms. In a collision of seasons, a light snow clings to the new life. Droplets, like tears, quiver from the flowers and sparkle like diamonds on the black page. It’s beautiful, this blending of life and death, summer and winter, a moment in life caught on paper and captured for publication in 2004 for me to enjoy, years later. Perhaps even more beautiful is the poetry on each page. In...

Getting away is something I really enjoy. Seeing new places and people of different cultures is wonderful.

I remember as a kid that my friends in the neighborhood would invite me to play ball,...

    Christians and the Church should expect trouble, opposition and even persecution from the world around them. But nobody ever hopes trouble will come from within the Church. Jesus, in His "high-priestly-prayer" prayed His followers would be one even as He and His Father were, are and always will be one. He said Church members would be identified by how they loved one another. Paul wrote to the Ephesian Church (4:3ff) "...to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. And there is one...
