Opinion

Harriet Hageman:

I have often said that there is a special place in hell for those who pursue policies that are intended to increase the price of food, energy, and housing.

Fresh flavors lighten things up

I think I always found shrimp intimidating because it was always “fancy” food when I was growing up and through much of my adult life. Not to mention, growing up in Wyoming in the 80’s and 90’s shrimp was invariably always frozen and breaded to begin with then deep fried….and it just wasn’t my thing.

It was the sound of music to my ears when I heard a rider mower cruising up and down the alley behind my home on Saturday morning.

What a Week

I've been bought and sold on the "Dark Web". For the second time in my adult life I received a phone call stating I was being taken to court for a debt owed from over 10 years ago.
