Echoes from the Loafers' Club Meeting Do you ever talk to yourself? Sometimes. I wasn't talking to you. Driving by Bruce's drive I have a wonderful neighbor, named Bruce. Whenever I pass his drive, thoughts occur to me, such as: I sat in my car centered in a large parking lot as my wife did a...
88th General Assembly: When I started my first term in the Iowa Senate, one of the first things we had to do was pass a deappropriations bill because the state didn’t have enough money to fulfill the promises it had made the previous year. We were short millions of dollars and had to pass a...
Dear Editor, I’m glad to see that the poster sales have gone forward, and from what I have heard, this year should be one of the best. And yes, I’m purchasing 10 of them. As for my request last week that the people that stirred up so much hate and threats call me to explain what was wrong with...

The world continues to groan from a variety of problems affecting each of us, whether it is the worldwide corona virus pandemic, social, political, economic unrest or fear for safety of family members in various parts of the country and world. I am thinking of three grandchildren in or near the...
Echoes from the Loafers' Club Meeting For over 37 years, I've been going to the same barber. And how does he reward my loyalty? I can't muster a guess. He retires! Driving by Bruce's drive I have a wonderful neighbor, named Bruce. Whenever I pass his drive, thoughts occur to me, such as: I...
