    ONE OF THE GEMS I PICKED UP AT THE AAUW BOOK SALE WAS "ERNIES AMERICA."

    ERNIE PYLE WAS THE GREAT COLUMNIST OF WWII, BUT HE WAS GREAT BEFORE WHEN HIS EDITOR IN WASHINGTON SENT HIM ON THE ROAD IN THE USA TO COVER THE DUST BOWL, THE GREAT DEPRESSION AND ORDINARY PEOPLE.  ITS A GREAT READ.  

    UNFORTUNATELY, A JAPANESE SNIPER ENDED HIS LIFE NEAR IWO JIMA, AND SILENCED A GREAT ORDINARY MAN, WHO TOLD THE STORY OF AMERICANS WHEREVER HE TRAVELED.

    I JUST STARTED READING "WHERE MEN WIN GLORY."  ITS THE STORY OF PAT TILLMAN, THE FAMOUS FOOTBALL PLAYER, WHO DUMPED THE GAME TO SERVE HIS COUNTRY AND WAS KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN.  MUCH OF THE BOOK IS ABOUT THE COMPLEXITY OF AFGHANISTAN, AND MAKES ON WONDER, IF WE SHOULD RISK OUR FIGHTING MEN THERE.  WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    MANY PEOPLE, MYSELF INCLUDED, ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO EXPLORING THE NEW TRACT OF BEACH PROPERTY RECENTLY ACQUIRED FOR PUBLIC USE.  A NICE WALK FROM THE OVAL BEACH TO THE SAUGATUCK CHANNEL, WILL BE A NEW ADVENTURE.  WE CERTAINLY THANK ALL THOSE WHO SPENT TIME AND EFFORT TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY SENATOR BIRKHOLZ.  READY FOR THE NEXT OVAL TO CHANNEL RUN?

    EVERYBODY REMEMBERS THEIR FAVORITE BRUTAL WINTER  MINE WAS THE WINTER OF 1936. ON JAN 30, WE HAD AN ALL DAY BLIZZARD.  SCHOOLS WERE CLOSED FOR TWO WEEKS. IF YOU LIVED IN THE COUNTRY, YOU HIBERNATED. TRUCK PLOWS COULD NOT GET DOWN THE ROADS.  FINALLY IT TOOK BIG DIESEL TRACTORS WITH WING PLOWS TO OPEN UP THE ROADS.  THE SIDES PLOWED UP WERE NEAR THE TELEPHONE WIRES.  WE MADE AN EMERGENCY TRIP TO HOLLAND WITH A TEAM AND SLEIGH, TO GET FEED, COAL AND NEEDED GROCERIES.  TEMPERATURES REACHED 22 BELOW.  WHAT WAS YOU FAVORITE WINTER?

    WHY ARE THE SENATORS RESIGNING. ARE THE THE RATS LEAVING A SINKING SHIP.

    MORE THAN LIKELY THEY WANT TO GET SOME RETIREMENT MONEY WHILE ITS STILL THERE.

    Our representatives in congress tell us that a large part of the new health plan will be paid by taxes on millionaires.  The question is this.  Will we be running out of millionaires, in a few years?
