WHEATLAND - Tell a liberal you favor lower taxes, and they’ll respond by asking you if you want to go without paved roads, running sewers, and other critical infrastructure.     …

There are many small towns in America that have left their traditions. Some for economic reasons, some for apathetic reasons and some who want to be more politically correct. One of the greatest traditions that really brought us together as a nation and as united communities was the annual Fourth of July parade.

Weekly Editorial by Mark DeLap

We break things. We’re human. Sometimes we break them twice, three times and more. The best we can hope for is being forgiven, recovery and repurposing. We also hope the mistakes we made can be avoided by our children, but in the event that they take a similar path, we pray that they watched how we got through it.

It’s that time of year.

WHEATLAND – I can recall the times when I was heading back to college and my father would say, “Don’t forget to check the oil.” It did not matter how many times I was home over the course of the year, I would hear that phrase on each visit. It is not a bad thing to be reminded to check the oil, in fact, think of the repercussions if you do not!

When I am feeling low or needing a little break from the real world stresses and problems, I always try to just take a stroll through a thrift store. We actually have two of them in Wheatland, one owned by Marge Scholten and one managed by Marge Scholten.
