These experts speak of Susan's romantic problems and other factors, causing her murderous conduct, resulting in the deaths of her small innocent children. Disregarding all these Freudian theories, what we have here friends is evil; comparable to any evil ever recorded in the history. The responsible one for this detestable act is hardly mentioned, and his name is Lucifer, the bright and morning star, seemingly beautiful to behold. The same Creature responsible for crushing the skulls on the unborn innocents inside the womb. I have yet to hear a Freudian theory that blames Lucifer for anything, but we hear a lot of blame directed at some dear old mother, who never intentionally dir ted anyone wrongly. Flip Wilson comic extraordinaire was close in his routine when he said .... "the devil made me do it." The devil only makes one do it, if one allows him access, and this day in time he has plenty of access due to deception. Good and evil are the only forces on the face of this earth, responsible for ,motivation in people. Every adult person capable of distinguishing right form wrong, is accountable for their ....deeds, and not someone's dear old upright mother. Sincerely, Bill R. Boyd Edge Of Common Sense By Baxter Black, DVM I was reminded of Harry Johnson today. I'd been drivin' down a long stretch of country road. dust boilin' up in the rearvfiew mirror, a thermos of coffee in the seat and the sun warmin' the cab of the pickup. It was a fine fall day. Cool, but not crisp. Still dry. The brush and grass have given up on rain ever comin' and are shuttin' down to hibernate. Great day to be workin' cows. I first met Harry in the feedlot. He was" the cattle fore- man. He was not happy there. He was an 'outside' man. He'd spent his life.workin' on ranches. I don't know if he ever owned one himself but he was a cowboy. A cowboy's cowboy. Which meant he took care of the cows like they were his own. He lived in Bruneau, Idaho. Somewhere along the way he married. Iris.. She was a school teacher m that little community, I think. Harry told me he learned a lot about his wife the day he got his first paycheck after they were married. He was cowboyin' for somme outfit down there in Owyhee county. His check was for 1530. He stopped at Angel's to have a beer and cash his check. They had a card game goin' and Harry got sucked iin. By the time he realized his predicament, he had lost $2',9. Harry said he went dowm the street to his house. He walked in the door with his; hat in his hand and confessed to his new wife. She looked him over. She couldn't believe he came home with one dolltarl She suggested he might as well go back and try and lose it all. Well, he hiked back to Angel's, hit a lucky streak ~and won it all back! Harry retired in 1973. We had a party for him in Moun- tain Home. Harry got up and said, "Just like the ship- wrecked sailor who found a woman on a deserted island, I didn't come here to make a speech." Then he sat down. Harry didn't take well to retirement. We'd make sure he got included in all the braradings and cow workin's. He'd come to a few. But we couldn't get him to help. He'd lean on the fence or set in the co,ok trailer and visit. Matter of fact, he wore his bed slippers. I used to think, 'Gosh, he needs to keep busy.' He knew hoe to do everything better than all of us but he never butted in. I never figgered out wheth,er he had just decided to relax and soak up the sun after a li.fetime of hard work or whether he put on his bed slippers arad waited to die. He only lived eight more years after he retired. Either way, he was my friend and I think and then. 'Specially on bright fall days like can lay on the south side of a windbreak, sorta doze. Rick Clark, publisher It was quite a turnout for the annual quet Saturday night. It takes a lot of effort together and Steve Barta and Martha Bowyer job. There's a lot of pre-planning, keeping the updated, printing the newsletter, and then task of the banquet itself...it's tir work, but "somebody's gotta do it." RC You reckon Billy and The Boys got the The Boys about got wiped out by the voters probably next come the elections for president, The huge voter turnout nationwide was an voters are just plumb mad, disgusted and The Bums Out!" The Perkins precinct was dom as one of the many national voting a "sample polling place" for the national ABC, NBC, CNN and the Associated Press. wasWt a TV boy with his camera stuck in coming out of the Lions Den...I know of a that would have given them a "real sampling" ticked off voter. RC Being a newspaper man it is somewhat Jack Mildren, the front runner for the lost. Why? Because his campaign was run by a felt that newspapers could not deliver his vi the glitz of a TV spot. To my knowledge Jack Mildren and his cronies did not pay for one newspaper ad in black and white. I guess what really galled his campaign manager called for our FAX us a "news release" on the last day of the could tell you readers where he was going to be day. My reply to him was, "You didn't think our readers were of any value when you were money on TV ads, so why don't you FAX them 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9." I didn't get the FAX. When Is My Subscription Due?
