What About This? By Wayne William Cipriano

I can’t believe that some parents in American school districts are tacitly accepting the idea of retroactive birth control by embracing the idea of sending students to school in the face of this raging Covid-19 curse, just to avail themselves of FREE DAY CARE. Not all kids are catching it. Of those who do, not…

Around here, for a week or so, before stiff waves of wind blow them all away, New England boys like me look out over the backyard and get a little homesick. They float slowly down, they sway in the sunlight reflecting the reds, tans, oranges, yellows, browns and greens of Autumn, presenting the bright calling…

Just because a person has a vowel at the end of his last name doesn’t necessarily mean he is of Italian descent. And just because a person is of Italian descent doesn’t necessarily mean he is an expert on pizza. But it certainly helps. It may be a genetic thing. Who knows? All the cooks…

We got an interesting piece of mail a while ago. A company called, judging by their letterhead, CASH DEALS for LAND, L.L.C. (CDL) offered to buy a portion of our ranch. I don’t know a lot about this deal. I don’t know why that company chose to send us an offer. We certainly are not…

Say what you want about our newest member of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, Associate Justice Kavanaugh, and you might say for example that he lied under oath in front of that Senate committee and the rest of the world when asked about “Bouffing,” he, without a doubt, likes beer –…

What About This? By Wayne William Cipriano

When I read “The Champion News” column by Wilda Moses in the 13 August 2020 edition of the Herald, I was quite surprised. After all, who really needs to be reminded what an important service the Post Office provides? But then, I thought about how a lot of people feel about the Post Office. We…
