All political entities suffer the pitfalls of cronyism. This is sometimes magnified in smaller communities. Especially as the older establishment power brokers and their offspring are challenged by newcomers to the community. ... More ›

If the community only knew what all went on. That is why we all laughed at the "We are a community of Character" slogan. Yeah, right!!!

Maybe that is why most of our sports teams are horrible. Coaches who aren't of strong character and morals, may play the school board members kids and others with influence on thier careers before better athletes. Just saying

Your right Mrs. Sawers, you don't have to hide behind another name. Let's see you just told everyone that your family, Bays family, and Bippert family are the best of best friends. So why would you have to face retaliation? ... More ›

It's becoming obvious that not enough old school good old boys and girls have left yet! Election time is coming and it's time to give Bippert and Raabe the boot, It's obvious the current school board has failed miserably!
