Home Country

Slim Randles

“Bert looks good this morning, Doc,” Dud said, quietly. Three stools down the counter, Bert smiled and said, “Yes, I certainly do!”

We turned toward our old pal. “You heard that?”

“Sure did, guys,” he grinned. “Look….”

Where The Fallen Are Not Forgotten

The southernmost part of the Netherlands is dotted with small quaint villages and townships that have supported the local farming economy for the past 100 years.

There are rolling hills and pastures as far as the eye can see, except for what was once a sixty-five-acre fruit orchard just outside of the Village of Margraten.

Pet Corner

by De De Young

Trainer, K-9 Kampus

One big issue is potty training, the first thing to remember is that it is not natural for a dog to do anything but squat when they need to potty!

It turns everything up side down for the dog when we ask them to let you know when they need outside. A lot of dogs just flat don’t know what they are supposed to do.

House Report

By State Representative Todd Russ

I noted in my last column some grievous practices at the state Health Department. House leaders are still delving into fixing the problems at the department and ways to keep them from recurring. One positive, however, is that the department is now in the process of hiring additional nurses to help health care facilities, and state health care providers say that’s a relief.

Rural hospitals, surgical centers, nursing homes and home health care servers have to be regularly inspected in order to receive payment for their services. These providers rely on state inspectors to conduct routine site visits and records check who then report their findings.
