CAP participates in SAR drill
Super Bowl Sunday? While millions of fans gathered together to watch the football game, Civil Air Patrol pilots and aircrews, dedicated to saving lives, were flying practice search and rescue (SAR) missions in order to sharpen their SAR skills. They are very well aware that flying skills and abilities deteriorate rapidly if not practiced diligently.

Where is the Democrats' tax-cut alternative?
The following editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: Democratic leaders in Congress have produced impressive charts showing that President Bush's tax cut may cost $2.3 trillion over the next 10 years and that the anticipated surplus of $2.7 trillion wouldn't be enough to pay for the cuts, debt reduction and projected spending increases.

The case for wild
When I was around 10 years old, my family was visiting my grandparents in Montello, Wis., (pop. 5,000). Family legend has it that my grandma sent me to the store for bread, butter and a dozen eggs. I walked to the little store on the corner of 1st and Main, bought the groceries, and proudly presented them to her. Mission accomplished. When she unpacked them, she was horrified to see that I had bought margarine instead of butter. I received a stern lecture on supporting Wisconsin dairy farmers, including all my uncles, and was sent back to the store to exchange the offending product for real Wisconsin butter. (If memory serves me, she was so mortified that she asked me not to tell the store manager who I was.)

Is it Word of Mouth or Word of Empire?
A good way to test the fairness of a system is to turn it on its operators. Many have complained about anonymous personal attacks in Word of Mouth. The question is, what happens when the Empire becomes the target? Specifically, does it protect the anonymity of the caller?

Alternative bear plan
I have lived here for 55 years and have been with the bear, seen the bear and hunted bear. After all this time and the population of people growing from 5,000 or so to the 30,000 we have today, here is an idea of how to make the situation pay for itself:

Fame and Anne Lindbergh
The following editorial appeared in today's Philadelphia Inquirer: She lived out the fantasies of many a romantic schoolgirl: Meet and marry a gallant, handsome hero. Share with him soaring adventures, while still finding time to tend to your rich inner life.

Are the same people calling over and over?
The other night there were five Word of Mouth comments taking Reinwand, Day and Metcalfe to task for their signed comments about WOM. One of the big problems with WOM is how do we know that all five comments were not made by the same person?

Bush's faith-based assistance proposal is filled with numerous pitfalls
Twelve years ago, the senior President George Bush envisioned "a thousand points of light" and challenged Americans to get involved in their communities, give to charities, and work together at the local level to solve local problems. This was a noble idea, although not a novel one.

The right to choose
I see the newly elected member of the Downtown Socialist Party got government to dictate to merchants and consumers what they should buy and sell. When we opened Foodland we opted not to carry farmed fish and I still opt not to buy it, but I never ever thought I or anyone else should dictate to other merchants or consumers what they should carry or buy.

Get on with growing our economy
Consider if you will, a primitive region somewhere in this world of over 20 million acres in size, containing over a thousand islands and very few public roads, a region inhabited by very few people.
