FFA teaches me well

 Editor, My name is Elainna Dulcich and I am a senior at Mariposa County High School. I am a proud member of the Mariposa FFA Chapter and this is my fourth year raising market meat lambs.

Come see the female chickens

 Editor, Hello, my name is Cayden and this is my first year doing 4-H poultry and I would appreciate it if you came to meet me at the fair. I have four chickens, all female.

Present (your) arms!

Editor, I think that this analogy might be one of the best ways to explain the need for a national Covid-19 vaccination mandate to conservative news viewers and especially our Second Amendment folks. Before I get to that, let’s not forget that 99.99 percent of we Americans have had our polio and smallpox shots in the arms, and our kids […]

Read the book

Editor, — or should I say “reader.” Just finished -30- by Greg Little. At age 93, and having read literally thousands of books, I can honestly say this is one of my favorites, a fun and engrossing “read.” This is not a promo. I didn’t get paid to say it. Read it!
