* As you can imagine, the weather around here is something of a priority for me.  At the moment, we’ve caught perhaps an additional foot of snow to lay on top of what we already had for about the last week or so.  That resulted in school closings again today, as well as most businesses […]

We know the name of the Salt City shooter, Sulejman Talovic, and his nationality, Bosian.    We know an officer from the Salt City police department sent this punk to Hell.   The off-duty officer who responded, Ken Hammond, simply said, “I feel like I was there and did what I had to do,”  That is what […]
