Why Do We Waste Money On Toys?

Who needs toys when you have a calf puller?
I hope the calf puller works the next time Michael needs it. Michael had leaned it up against the fence of the cow lot after pulling a calf a few weeks ago, and Kane has spent hours playing with it ever since. Kane calls it his crane. When leaning up against a panel, the calf puller’s hook, which is used to hook onto the chain that is wrapped around a calf’s feet, hangs over the top of the panel and does resemble a crane. Kane wraps the cable and hook around various items – it’s been pieces of broken posts lately – and then cranks the handle to raise and lower the load. He then climbs up the panel and straddles it as he releases the hook and drops the load back onto the ground about six feet below.

“You’re From The Newspaper Can’t You Do Something?”

 Being in the newspaper business has it’s own unique set of rules. Even when I’m not “at work” I am always on the job. 
  I have accepted that stories and photo ops come up at odd times and in odd places. In more than 36 years of newspapering I have gotten used to the fact that people will come up to me on the street, at a restaurant or in any public venue with something they think is either newspaper worthy or a cause that the paper should be involved in. I gladly welcome input and always try to be helpful.
 Some things however I cannot do anything about and have no control over. The discontinuance of the Ray’s Apple Market grocery insert in the newspaper is one of those things.
