Every time I see another front page article complete with colored photos in our local/regional version of the grocery store tabloids, I feel sick— and long for the days of truly good journalism. The stable of young “journalists”…. ( and I use that term loosely..what in God’s name are they teaching them in current journalism schools?)…loves to write gossipy, sensational puff pieces like the current rage for several days..i.e. “Barnesville boy(s) denied confirmation by the Catholic Church”

So what? The Catholic Church IS A CHURCH and can make decisions based on their church doctrine without anyone like the forever- “cub” reporters from Fargo taking them to task with their National Enquirer type writing.
If the Catholic Church in Barnesville or anyplace else sees fit to deny such rites to the boys being open activists for the gay marriage amendment in Minnesota— so be it.
The Catholic Church is opposed to such marriage and also the leading church opposing abortion (ie. murder of unborn babies) ; they have the guaranteed First Amendment rights to do so..with no whining articles from the inane reporters at our ONLY regional newspaper.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have an alternative newspaper?

I am a retired elementary "schoolmarm"..I was a school librarian/media director for nearly 25 years before I retired in 2004. Naturally one of my fondest things is reading! I also love reading aloud to young children, something I did for so many years with amazing results; every child wants to read the same book as the teacher read!!!! I also am fond of my gardens...both flower beds and vegetable plots. I love being outdoors....mowing the lawn after my husband has done so with a big lawn tractor...I trim with my small power mower! I have a rain barrel to collect rainwater for plants! I have an old fashioned "pedal" bike I love to ride. I enjoy going to a Silver Sneakers class at a community center about 20 miles from my country home on what I call the "Buffalo Bluff" which overlooks the Buffalo River and its valley below. I LOVE to write and am working on a book for my grandkids so they will always know more about Grandma when she was still "kickin" and "had all her marbles"!!!!
