    The Prairie Spy Alan “Lindy” Linda The book: “Lies My Teacher Told Me” covers those parts of school-taught history that are not quite the truth. James W. Loewen has taken the, if not untruthful parts of history along with the parts that are out-and-outright missing, task of pointing out what we should know. And were not told…. Read More

    To the Editor, The reality…Biden is president, Trump isn’t.  That’s good for America.

    By Msgr. David Baumgartner Sacred Heart Catholic Church   Here is a thought from last week’s homily: From Adam to Jesus the devil used the same tricks, to attack by way of sensual pleasure, power and pride.
