  • Kenny selling his bling bling

    Earrings might be the last thing one would expect a Boy Scout to sell to raise money, but the 15-year-old owner of Kenny’s Bling Bling is doing just that.
    Kenny Cirillo, 15, came up with the idea of making and selling an array of earrings to help fund a previous trip to the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, and on Saturday he was back at it, selling his handmade earrings and an assortment of candy bars with his dad, Chris, at Kroger.

  • Turn snowstorm into a mini vacation

    OK, did everyone get their snow hit? If you’re still craving more, may I suggest a trip to Minnesota? I am Norwegian American, with roots in Minnesota. I know I can “weather the snow.”  I just don’t like to, unless I’m skiing.
    I could ski here on the farm, but there’s that long walk back up. Of course, I still have that long walk up after a big snow. My four-wheel drive truck can make it up or down, once. Then, I have a luge track and must wait for the thaw.

  • Note to fellow shoppers: Get out of my way!

    Is there anything worse than leaving the grocery store with a case of shopping rage?

    The political pundits and party bosses scratching their heads over insurgent presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders should have been at Alton Christian Church on Monday night.
    There they would have found the answers that have eluded them as to why such fringe characters  — described by their detractors as the boorish billionaire and nutty socialist — have skyrocketed in popularity.
