The Idle American

Let’s face it. When national leaders agree to attend summit meetings, we don’t expect many tangible and/or desirable results. More likely, whatever proposals are on the table will cost billions, take great chunks of time and eventually run off the tracks.

The Bend News

Will this crazy weather ever stop? Even some of the native trees have been fooled by the warm weather. The wild plums are blooming, some of the fruit trees are just about to burst into blooms and wham here comes 18 degree weather. No frost with it, but bitter cold. There is a lot to be thankful for as we here are not having all the ice and snow that is plaguing other parts of the country and even places in Texas.

Letter to the Editor

I read with interest last week’s article in your paper on the charges being levied by the candidates for district judge. The article correctly reported that Evan Stubbs answered and refuted all of the residency questions raised by Mills. Evan Stubbs traces his roots in this district for five generations on his father’s side and six generations on his mother’s side. Left unanswered are questions relating to the charges levied against Dan Mills. I have personally investigated some of these charges and would like to add a few facts to those reported in your article.

The Bend News

We have at last some really nice weather and the forecast for all of this week and part of next week seems to be ok. It is hard to believe that some states have received over 3 feet of snow, which is just more than we can even think about. All that is on the news is just about the weather up north and how many people are without electricity. Some of us around here would be totally lost without that, as most out and about the Bend depend on electric for just about everything, especially the pumps that supply our water. Of course there is always solar, but who around here have that? It might be a smart thing to get a wind-charger to back up our electric supply and then there are generators, but that would mean a big supply of gasoline in order to operate it. It is really something to think about!

A Look Through Lindy's Window

I have seen many weddings, but never have I witnessed a wedding such as my son, Shawn, and Minna’s this past Friday night at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel in Downtown Las Vegas. We all gathered in the lobby at the
Treasure Island Hotel waiting to be transported to the venue

The Richland Springs Report

We were able to enjoy a few days of warmth on Friday and Saturday, but then came Sunday. While we need the moisture, I wasn’t thrilled by the sleet that whitened my driveway. It was 33 degrees at noon, so I knew it was not going to be pretty by morning. I’m afraid Glen will not be going for a walk today. It remains to be seen if school will be in session tomorrow. If the pattern follows its usual path, the moisture should pass us by and just leave us cold and dry. I hope not; we need the rain.

The Bend News

By Jo Price.
 
The big question on everyone’s mind is where and when is the Global Warming going to take place? The folks up north and northeast would certainly like to know that answer as they have had their share and more of bad cold weather and still getting hit hard again this week, and to make bad matters worse there is a shortage of propane. Here it has been warm for a couple of days and then wham wake up to cold and windy weather.

Elm Grove Echoes

By Rhonda Wyatt.
 
There is still just dust and spider webs to report in the old rain gauge. The wind is howling today, perhaps it will bring some moisture to our dry lands. June Beakley of the Elm Grove community let me know that her brother, Sidney ( Speedy) Holland, of Blanket passed away. Mr. Holland was a graduate of Richland Springs. Prayers go out to the family in this difficult time.
