Let’s be clear: Knowing European starlings have the unique ability to imitate human voices, car alarms, barking dogs and a variety of other sounds is probably not going to change the negative opinions most people have of this non-native bird. A starling’s talent for mimicry is simply a case of a fascinating trait of a bird that no one more

As the new year starts, many people will set impossible goals for themselves, while some will put little effort in. What is the point? We have all year the phrase new year, new you and most of us have rolled our eyes. It's just another year. And honestly, it is easy to dwell on the negative things that happened last year and the past. From politics to celebrities, plagues to prices, it's hard to think there is any light at the end of this deep dark tunnel that we call life. more
Hope gives us energy, fortitude, initiative and stamina, things needed for a productive life doesn't it? Through hope we can visualize our way out of bad times, it's something we can hold onto. If I have hope I can start something with confidence, I have the energy to pursue a positive thought. But if hope alludes me and I am unable to imagine myself in better times, my condition then becomes my reality and replaces the primer of success, ambition. I get frozen into a strange mold of some sort of limitation.Right now, at the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023, I think we Americans find our condition in decline. Our great American educational system is forced into a four day week. Prices are steadily increasing with no end in sight, in many cases straining our budgets to the point of having to choose between two unpleasant outcomes. At the same time the traditional American liberty and now the freedom to express ourselves seems to be under some sort of unbelievable attack with hardly any of our elected officials willing to go to bat for us while China remains more important to the leaders of Congress than you and I.But for me, the worst of it all has been the depressing reality in what I sense from the truth of the last election, and that is that my fellow countryman, for the most part don't seem to care.I expected the 'Red Wave', a reaction to the senseless policies of the extreme left but that didn't happen did it? No. Now the condition of my hope for a better life for my son has all but vanished. Spending, perversion, censorship and control seem to be ascending to the forefront of national policies and call me crazy but the social and cultural circumstances that cause schools to have to reduce the number of days they can provide for the education of our kids is a pretty reliable source of our condition. That should never happen. As a nation we are sick. Yep, sick puppies. Right is wrong and wrong seems to be winning but we don't email, call, or visit our representatives do we? What's the condition of your hope? more
For the second year in a row my family and I packed up the day after Christmas and headed to Gulf Shores, AL. more
It seems early to think about, but this issue of the Marshfield Mail is indeed the last one for 2022. It has been an exciting year, allowing us to welcome the New Year by setting goals or resolutions for ourselves. Whether you do or do not set resolutions, it is good to set goals for yourself. Just remember to be honest with yourself and to not set unrealistic goals. more
Closing out our non-traditional holiday movies is a stop motion film that started off being somewhat underground to a modern-day holiday classic to most. But, of course, I’m talking about the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas. more
Over a year ago, I unexpectedly accepted a position at the Marshfield Mail. more
With the holidays upon us, people want to watch Christmas movies. You know the classics, Rudolph, Frosty, the entire catalog of Hallmark. So this year, might I suggest a few films to break tradition and perhaps start something different? more
