We are thankful for a bountiful harvest of wine grapes. Many people enjoy wine, and the word is the yields were strong and the quality in the bottle is going to be great. There's even reliable information that prices are strong.

The other day I heard a politician say to his rival, "If you'll stop telling lies about me, I'll stop telling the truth about you."

Years ago, we befriended a family in Rio Vista. They were and are special people. At the time, they had four daughters and were hoping for a boy. Actually, it wasn't just a hope — after four girls, it became a fervent prayer.

When I was a kid, I went to church a lot. In our church, the people who decided such things had an odd affinity for preachers who were old enough to have outlived their enthusiasm but not their pension.

Tattoos, who knew? I have been writing this column for a quite a while. I have had a small group of people writing their opinions on my opinions on occasion, but the column to engender the most reader comments, by far, was on the subjects of tattoos and big cotton bloomers; that whole dang deal flat blew me away.

In the past week, I have been confronted by at least three people a day berating me about the fact this column has not appeared in the News-Sentinel of late. It isn't funny, but I have been telling people that I am being published only on Mondays. They nod and walk on. The paper isn't published that day during the week as an austerity matter, and it will go back to normal as soon as everything else does.

In the interest of scientific inquiry, I decided to look into what made Lawrence Welk such a durable entertainer in the hearts and minds of people (over 30) worldwide. I tuned into Channel 6 and sat there for a whole hour the other night, and I think I discovered what his secret to professional longevity was. Speaking for squareheads everywhere, I found he spoke with the exact same accent that the average Wishek, North Dakotan thinks he doesn't have.

In a conversation I had with a young Thornton civic leader named Mike Stokes the other day, the subject of child labor arose. We were talking about lethargic teens and the need for some of them to engage in employment that would empower them in two ways: 1.) They'd earn money; and 2.) They would learn the value of an honest day's work for a logical day's pay.

A long time ago, my dear friend Albert Einstein said World War III will be fought with cyber and atomic weapons (I paraphrase) and World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Is it just me or does the term "pink slime" sound like anything but a meat product you'd want made into a sandwich for human consumption? I know the folks in the advertising and promotion fraternity are developing ulcers over the fact that somebody didn't throw a body slam into the knuckle-headed word spinner who coined the term on that fateful day.

When I was a high school kid, there was a move afoot to go on strike, the effort being to cause the school officials to grant tenure to Mr. Van Horn, the drama teacher, ensuring his further employment.

I'm aware that the opinion page presents a variety of columnists
whose views will often differ from my own. Still, it seems to me
that there is a huge difference between stating an opinion and
sharing privileged information.

While watching sporting events these days, it is impossible to
not think about the extent to which some athletes will cover
themselves with "body art." They call those full-arm tattoos a
"sleeve" for a reason.

Forest Lake was the golf equivalent of "Cheers" when I first
played there. The fact that it closed was a sad day in a lot of
households around here.
Dr. Robert Bader treated long-time patient Gladys Aiken at his
Lodi office on Wednesday, his 80th birthday. He has been a
chiropractor for 55 years and still loves coming to work.

Dr. Robert Otto Bader watched his patient moving steadily down
the hallway Wednesday afternoon and quipped: “Slow down! That
carpet’s not fireproof!”

The thing I hate most about growing old is growing old. Nobody
warned me about the fact my feet would keep growing farther and

On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, my assistant came into the
office with the frightening announcement that the World Trade
Center buildings in New York had been bombed. The very first words
out of my mouth were: "Osama bin Laden."

I have been reminiscing lately about the 20-plus years I spent
practicing in Rio Vista. I left there in 1974 and, through some
miracle of good fortune, I still see at least one Rio Vistan in my
present practice every day, and often there will be five or more of
those fine folks.

One of the interesting things about being a chiropractic doctor
in a small town is the same thing everyone else in a personal
service — you know, like doing hair, giving legal advice or
bartending — finds interesting: There are no secrets.

On the first of December, 1956, I took over a chiropractic
practice which was for sale in Rio Vista, a small town looking for
a doctor to take the place of a fellow who got himself in the
middle of a fluoridation war which was no longer enjoyable.
