• Sage, philosopher, thinking man’s-man and a pretty good baseball player, Yogi Bera passed away Sept. 22 at the age of 90.
Yogi was an 18-time All Star and won 10 World Series rings as a player and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. However, most people know him in the American lexicon as the purveyor of the Yogi-ism or Berra-ism, or colloquial expressions that may seem to lack knowledge. However, I always found some of what he said to be quite insightful in its silly cliche.
Some of my favorite expressions: “I never said most of the things I said,” or “Never answer an anonymous letter.”
When thinking about some of his expressions, they can be a bit facetious, but when you really dig deep, you can gain some sort of theological ideal...logic behind the madness.

The Fruits of Islam Are Coming
While reading the gospel of Matthew Ch.7:15 thru 20 I could not help but think of the false prophet Muhammad and the insistence of the Obama government that the religion founded by Muhammad is peaceful and benevolent. No nation or peoples have ever converted to Islam except at the point of a sword or today at the point of a gun.
Hopefully the American people will see the millions of desperate people flooding into Europe and recognize these are the fruits of Islam. When a faith fosters hatred, murder and depravity the tree which bore the fruit cannot be a good tree. The very root and branch of Islam is evil.

It’s that time of year again when our farm comes alive with the sounds of bawling calves. For a good four days the newly weaned calves in our lots call for their mothers around the clock. During chore time Michael and I can’t even communicate over the noise. I’m always grateful when a bunch of the calves get horse and the noise level decreases slightly.
And then, about the time the calves settle into life after momma, we wean another group of calves and everything starts over again. I think we usually wean at least five or six groups of calves.

Mark Schoenrock and I go back a way. A long way. In fact, we have known each other before either of us could shave. Our time started together in Cub and Boy Scouts during the early 1970s in Fairbury when we met in the basement of the Methodist Church.
Through the years we kept in touch on and off. During his military career and my subsequent return to Fairbury as owner of the Journal-News we would meet up each time his path brought him back to Fairbury for a visit, a vacation or just a quick stop through. Each time he would tell me in confidence that someday, when he retired from the military, he would like to move back to Jefferson County and perhaps enter public service.
I was first thrilled when he moved back to our county last year and now am equally as happy that he was named last week to fill the position of Butch Craig, who passed away this summer.

For months now we have been aware that a Swedish television station was going to be doing a spotlight on Fairbury. Specifically the network was going to do a segment on our sister business MSA Brand Products and our U.S. Flag production. The news story was about how United States industry competes with Chinese manufacturing.
Reporters from the Swedish program “Aktuellt” (Sweden’s Version of 60 Minutes or 20/20) said the program would air all over Europe. Needless to say we were excited. From the standpoint of the Journal-News it was going to be great to give Fairbury publicity. From a manufacturing perspective at MSA this was going to be positive PR.
They say two out of three ain’t bad. But in our case it wasn’t what we had hoped for. While our flag making factory did look good on the program, Fairbury came across as a run-down community with dilapidated buildings.
