Across the Aisle

My aisle’s a walk across the road I have

to walk. My neighbor’s stripping his bumper-

peeling decal off. We’ve had little to say

 

to each other these past twelve months.

Guessing where each other stands,

by the flags we wave. By now we’ve had

 

enough of this, our barely talking.

Letter to the editor: Rail bypass is best solution

Posted on November 10, 2016 |
By Frank Punderson



The cost and time to repair our railroad bridges has distracted us from the real issue: public safety. A vulnerable man-made canyon serves as a conduit of lethal product that transits through the heart of our downtown.

“I simply can't believe it,” said one local millennial. “America actually chose the schoolyard bully... hate reigns in America. I’m so disappointed and disillusioned about what it means to be an American.”

Karl Lindholm: The antidote to November's gloom

Karl Lindholm col Hart-Alaimo-001.jpg

November, ugh: so soon we go from warm to cold; the trees’ colorful leaves now carpeting the ground demanding to be raked; darkness coming right after lunch it seems; geese clattering overhead, black against a gray sky honking a valediction — and it will only get darker and gloomier ....

I’m not a winter person, runs in the family. You will not find Lindholms on the slopes or trails. It’s cold out. We come inside when it’s cold.
