In the paper, certain people are touting the fact that E-85 is going to be produced. E-85, if you put it in your modern vehicles, it will completely eliminate the manufacturer’s warranty. It will eat at the inside of your engines, E-85 is no good. It’s great for the farmers. Yeah. Something to sell. But watch out, American public.
Just a joke
I live in a small town a few miles south of St. Joseph. There is a sign posted on my street that reads “Slow, Children at Play.” There are tiny children in the street riding bicycles and scooters while 10- and 12-year-old boys go whizzing by them on ATVs and dirt bikes, racing each other at full throttle. Meanwhile, their parents don’t seem to care. The street sign is a joke. It is only a matter of time before something bad happens.
Rock it south
Why not start having concerts down at Lake Contrary in the park? That way the children could play and parents could watch everything. We have beautiful gazebos down there and anyone could have picnics and use the cookout facilities. It would be a nice idea to do something in the South End.
Proud of her
Whether you like our first lady or not, she knows how to act and present herself when representing our country. I see her as someone to be proud of.
Thank a farmer
Thank the farmers for gambling on planting a crop. It takes a large investment in land, machinery, seeds and fertilizer. Then depend on weather, drought, flooding, wind, hail and so forth. When able to harvest a crop, people far removed from farms make the decision on the price per bushel of crop. Farmers hope to receive planting and living expenses from the sale of their grain. When people buy the processed products, we pay much higher price than the amount received by farmers. I hope this small number of total population who are farmers continue to provide food for the world.
What is it about the Republican Party? I’ve never been a Republican, but I voted for some Republicans for the presidency. With Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush you had Iran-contra. With Richard Nixon you had Watergate. And now with Donald Trump, you have the liar-in-chief.
Not so sorry
You know, it’s really hard for me to feel sorry for the casino being flooded. If they were, what we voted on, they would be tied to a dock and floating in the river right now.
Beam me up
Congratulations on the interesting column written by Ken Newton on UFO encounters. These UFOs have a 50/50 chance of being either alien beings or our own above top secret, advanced aircraft.
