    The Prairie Spy Alan “Lindy” Linda One winter, back a few years, I purchased a 1976 International Harvester Scout, which I observed languishing in a roadside lot each day as I drove by on my way to work.

Our Homeland Security and Emergency Management division and… Read More

    The Prairie Spy Alan “Lindy” Linda One of the good things about deer hunting is that Cousin J. comes to visit. It gives us a chance to sit in my heated deer stand and, well, chat. (Real men don’t chat, you know. Just so you know.) We talked.  In the process, since he’s a fellow Vietnam veteran,… Read More

    By Pastor Ryan Stockstrom Harvest Fellowship Church That’s right, I said it!   There is great joy in seeing God at work. There is great fun in rejoicing with people who have had a real encounter with God, and their whole demeanor has changed from generally upset with life, to full of joy. One of our deepest needs… Read More

    By Tyler Trieglaff Notes from the Chief Weaning tags were pulled last Thursday and the calves were separated from the cows.
