Many Americans have been known for their bravery, grit, pride, family, God and country. Most have a lot of grit meaning they face danger with resolution, take action and move on to the next challenge.

I remember when the movie “True Grit” came out staring John Wayne. In the movie John Wayne had a lot of grit. Here was an old Sheriff / Bounty Hunter, alcoholic that was a real True American. At the end of the movie he was on one side of a clearing and a number of bad guys were on the other side making fun of him. He was on his faithful horse, took the reigns in his teeth and a gun in each hand and charge the group of bad guys. That is true Grit!

That is what we need, not necessarily a cowboy but a person of courage. Not necessarily a goody goody but a bit of a rough who throws caution to the wind and does the right thing. We have someone who has some of those characteristics in the name of “Donald Trump”. The Democrats are afraid of him because he will hold them accountable for the wrong things they have done. The Dictators around the world are also afraid of him because he will, no questions asked retaliate if we have been wronged. He will hit them harder then we got hit. If a Terrorist continuously  keeps coming into view by killing our people or trying to kill our people “he will take them out!” Continue reading

Pawn Star Rick Harrison’s son dies of Fentanyl poisoning. The recent death of Adam Harrison 39 shows us how wide spread this crisis is. We do not have a plan to stop the flow of drugs, we stop some but a lot gets across carried by Cargo ships and trucks, Terrorist, Illegals both are breaking the law. The Cartel’s are inventing new way every day on how to get drugs into the United States. They send it by land, Sea or air. They fly a load into a rural wooded are and drop it. They dump the load if they are getting caught and then the question is do they chase the bad guy or do they chase the drugs so they don’t have it to sell. I ask myself?Why are our people using drugs? Then how can they tell what is poison? We are living in a very depressing world right now. Much of it is cause by the greed of powerful people. We are caught in the middle, for instance we approve money for the border and they devert it to feeding and housing illegals. All I know it has to stop. You the voter have vote smarter, we need to elect someone that can make it stop! Someone with Grit!

Farmers I read on the internet that bamboo charcoal will get rid of rodents. Believe it or not! OK farmers there is your answer. Actually you can order it online. That would even work in the fields if it’s not to expensive, check it out!.


I am getting notes from reader which is a good sign. The notes are 99% positive. I get one from a soldier overseas. Keep the notes coming. It tell me you are a reader.


I see Texas has finally had enough of being accused of things they were not doing! The rest of the states need to follow. This administration is letting these Illegals come in.  Border Patrol was accused of drowning Illegals, but when they watched the video’s they were saving peoples from drowning. They were accused of whipping the aliens with their horse reins and they were using long reins to control the horses. Again watching the video’s and realized they were not hitting anyone. They were using the horses as barriers to stop illegal entree. Continue reading

I like to go back and try to recollect people and events in the past that had added to our newspapers. How far back I’m going I don’t know but here we go!!! I would like to talk about Veterans first then next month more info.

Many years ago I bought the Lady Lake Magazine with a friend and his wife.

I would later hire a great sales person Wendy Netherclift. She  is still a great friend her and her significant other who was my biggest client for many years Bob Irwin of Bob’s Coins and Jewelry near the Villages. Wendy retired and Bob retired and now they are living the dream. They are great friends of my wife and I.

Wendy and I tripled the revenue a a year and a half later. The partnership would later be changed and I would become a silent partner. After my non compete was well over I decided to buy a publication  in Ocala (not in the same territory) called the Seniors Voice of North Central Florida. I ask my friend if if Lady Lake Magazine was available to buy?  My partner friend and his wife contacted me and said they had made arrangements to sell their percentage to me. We came to an agreement and here I was with two newspapers. Continue reading

Boy are we  getting an education in  the medical world. My wife was recently moved to a new Medical Doctor. I did not see anything wrong with the doctor that she had but she was talked into it.

While at a Ophthalmologists they found some problem with her eye’s. They ask for a full heart workup. They said she needed a full Heart workup and check the blood flow, check for blood clots,  Check the carotid artery’s and finally they found bad blood flow in her legs. So they stop the big artery from flowing and hope the small vessels will take over. This is going to happen on four artery’s two in each leg. On her third visit from Dunnellon to Ocala the nurse Practitioner that had taken over from the Heart doctor suddenly wants to put her on three different kinds of Prescription medications and want to see her back in four weeks. Npw we have a family doctor /  Ophthalmologists / a Heart Specialist and a Nurse Practitioner. Something is not right!!! They want her on Blood Pressure meds / Cholesterol  meds /  and etc just in case. This robs your body of it’s effectiveness to heal it’s self and rob the Insurance company and you wallet. Where do you go to find out what is necessary? It sounds to me like three different doctors want her under their care.The original Heart Specialist is no longer seeing her. I am going to demand to see each Specialist and ask what gives??? Continue reading

This is a true story. When I was a little boy we were being raised by my Grand Mother while our parents worked out of town at the Boca Raton Hotel. One day just before Christmas my friend and I were playing near the Railroad tracks. We were bare footed. I jump off a little hill and landed on a broken beer bottle. It cut my heal pretty bad. I could see everything inside, my tendon was almost severed. The other boy piggy back me to the road and ran to the Fire Chiefs house. luckily to the Fire Chiefs home was close by. He wrapped me up and picked me up, put me in his truck and took me to my house where my grand mother was. They could tell they could not fix the wound. So the fire Chief took me to a clinic in the next town Hollywood. If the tendon was almost severed back in them days if it was severed you were crippled. They managed to get clamps on my tendon and pull it back into place and staple it. My parents were called. They picked me up at the clinic and I was told I would not be able to start walking for at least two months. Continue reading

Our apologies

Our photographer was in the hospital Friday night during the Jenkens Veterans celebration. We tried to get pictures and failed to make the right connection. But friends around town sent us some personal picture so I thought we would share. So in our paper are some interesting photos. Our photographer is on the mend.


We need to get a grip on our school system / Colleges. Not so much here in Florida but look at the Fox News. There are a lot of people are available and will travel at the drop of a hat, that will  protest just because they thinks its cool not knowing why their protesting. Palestine is a victim  of Hamas. The are barbaric and kill for fun. There is room for them in our world.

Part Two

Information from the Internet & Myself

See part one September issue

Government at work with our money!! A person dies at age 65 before collecting one benefit check. The person and employer paid into the system for almost 50 years and collected NOTHING! Keep in mind all the working people that die every year who were paying into the system and got nothing. These governmental morons mismanaged the money and borrowed or stole from the system so that it’s now going broke. Now they have the audacity to call today’s seniors “vultures” in an attempt to cover their ineptitude. The Government has borrowed 3 trillion from the Social Security Trust fund, our money in holding for trust that we and our employers paid in. Continue reading

What does the three F’s stand for? FREEDOM! Yes I’m standing up for what I believe in. We have to support our leaders that are trying to stop the Evil Forces. We need to support Trump against the “Dark Side”. We need to shed light on the dark side to expose what is happening to our country and our people. Our Country did stand for “Truth and Justice” We are slowly losing it.  Freedom is not free, we have to fight for it! . The Dark side is trying to get rid of our laws and our Law Enforcement. There are some people that have foreign influence and foreign Money. It turns out that they have been paying for the favors to some treasonists people.

I have been writing this column for some twenty years or more and have been sharing information about these illegal irregularities here the last two and a half years. I wrote about Fauci and Obama using our tax money to help finance the Wuhan Lab. I got COVID two years ago Christmas and gave it to my whole family…My wife, both sons, both of their wives all of the grand children (two were infants) so understand how it effected us on Christmas day. I am still not over it. A few times the thought would ease back, then I would lose another friend. The thought that our country being part of developing the Virus just chills me to the bone. I thought follow the money??? What happened to the Social Security Money that our employer and us paid in for our retirement and they died and retiree won’t receive after death? Think about that!

First they are not part of the Republican Team! They won’t win the people over the way they are acting. Who are the eight Republicans that voted with the democrats to get rid of the speaker. Well some say McCarthy made a secret deal with the Dem’s and sold the farm. They claim the committee did not cut any spending.  In fact there were some spending cut but they were not deep enough and McCarthy paid the price! We should have never set something up that the speaker could be taken from office that easy. But it is, what it is. Now we have to hurry through the process to get another speaker! Electing a temporary Speaker is a mistake.


If I have a chance to vote these eight Republicans out of office I will! I will vote another republican to replace them because I kind of understand that we need the votes to get anything done. For instance War and humanitarion supplies are on hold because it has to go through the House after they elect a speaker. All of this should not have happened! These eight Republicans are not part of the team. I hope they are proud of themselves, they are costing lives in the war! It is very important the republicans stick together at all cost. The Democrats vote together, the republicans don’t. You eight are fools! You have to meet and come up with a better solution than just getting even! Continue reading
