  • The second option

    By Gerard Flanagan

    Sometimes, we'll be in a situation where what we're doing just isn't cutting it. We keep trying and trying, but no matter what, we just can't get the task done. What we're doing isn't working.

    The Knights began their season Monday night at Glasgow. After taking a nine-point lead at the end of the first quarter, the Knights could not keep up with Glasgow’s offense and came up short, 96-88.

  • Plenty of prime deer hunting...

    Just read an interesting article! Seems there are 600,000 licensed hunters in Wisconsin. This would make them the eighth largest army in the world. Consider all the other states… some with more, some with fewer hunters (all with guns)… and you have quite an impressive number of armed citizens. And that number just reflects hunters… who are licensed… I’m not counting paper-punchers and people who own guns for self-defense or the military. Now I realize there are some crossovers but anyway you cut it, that’s a lot of gun owners.
