Meet Toby Toe Beans, a cat available for adoption at the Cascades Humane Society in Jackson.
Toby Toe Beans was named just for that – his toe beans, the cute little toe pads cats have. He is a very energetic kitten and would do well with a family to play with or other cats in the home. He is about 3 months old and is ready to chase feathers, catch toy mice and find a nice lap to cuddle in with his forever family. This orange and cream little man has been neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on vaccines.

In my opinion, "The Back Page", "Never apologize for having an opinion", was very well written and an excellent article! One sentence really struck me personally. "None of us has the corner on absolute truth." I need to keep that in mind for myself. I do not envy the position that your job puts you in Matt Schepeler, but I do think you do one heck of a great job!
What edition will the top ten from Onsteds Senior class be in?
How do you get the free Exponent? Could you give me a link? Thank you for making it available during this time when we are all sheltering in place.
No matter what anyone does someone is going to complain. If you can't trust yourself to drive past the Holiday decorations on the square without having or causing an accident maybe you should take another route or give up your drivers license.
Why were their 10 police cars in Big Boys yesterday?

I noticed the picture this week of Leland "Pinky" VanCamp... Pinky worked as a butcher at Bill's IGA back in the 60's. I believe he was also at Bill & Joe"s before that but not really sure. Maybe John or Roger Messmer could tell you that.I worked with him from 65 though 68.
I just noticed an article by Dennis Neely in the May 2019 Woods -n- Water News.
Looking to put together a 10u girls softball team for this spring to do a few tournaments. Thinking 4-5 tournaments. Any interest?

Now is a great time to identify invasive species and reclaim your land. Whether Autumn Olive or just overgrowth, the weather is giving a great window to evaluate and remove it!
