    By Tyler Trieglaff Notes from the Chief We are down to three cows left to calve. Two new babies this week and one more very close. We brought one cow back to join the main herd.

    I don’t go fishing much on opening day. For one thing, it’s always too cold. About the last thing I want to do after freezing my nether parts off all winter is take them out in a fishing boat where I can freeze them off some more. Bad as winters have been lately, they’re all… Read More

    By Tyler Trieglaff Notes from the Chief I have been slacking on my editorial section lately.  I’m surprised I haven’t heard from the Rochert Stalker.  Let’s try to get back into the swing of things.

    (I found the first wood tick of the season; here’s my favorite wood tick column.) I sat in church last Sunday and marveled as I usually do at how one’s mind tends to ramble past thoughts much more freely there. Is it the austere tones of the interior decorating?
