My first wife came from a ranching family 'way back up in the hills of California and had a cousin, Ted, who was a hounddog man.

I talked my way into hunting with him, of course.

All went well until we were on the way home and a badger ran across the road and dove into a large culvert pipe.

"Oh wow!" said Ted, "Let's get him!
He released most of the hounds and they plugged the culvert pipe at both ends with bawling insults. In the dead center of the pipe was a snarling badger.

These days we don't think much about axes. They're kinda old fashioned and they are too closely associated with manual labor for them to be very popular. It's a shame, too, because there is lore to an ax. There are proper and improper ways to sharpen one, for instance.

There are proper and improper ways to fell a tree with one, to limb a fallen tree, to split firewood. Replacing the handle on an ax could make the subject of a very interesting small book, even.

Our communities would like to extend their condolences to the

family of Lloyd O'Neil. Lloyd passed away on Saturday after a short

illness.

Wasn't the rain a blessing. Quite a large area benefited from the moisture, ranging from 1 1/4 to 2". Everything is already starting to green up.

Several track meets and ball games were postponed because of the rain. Most of these will be rescheduled for a future time.
