Showcasing our best
… And days spent with (wo)man’s best friend
Showcasing our best
Last week, I was once again reminded how generous our community is. I came to work early one morning and discovered a grocery bag tied to the front door handle. In the bag, I found beautifully wrapped packages with letters for two of The Madisonian’s columnists and someone we featured in the paper earlier this year. I quickly called or emailed the recipients of the packages and they came to collect their gifts.
Thoughts on being objective … and school spirit!
One of those non-traditional families
Madison County offers a variety of outdoor adventures, even in the winter. rom fly fishing to skiing – both downhill and cross-country, to ice skating and sledding – via snowmobile or the old fashioned way, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and increase your heart rate.
No matter the month, it is somehow always hunting season. Early season antelope, big game, mountain lion, waterfowl, bear – nearly every day of the year can be spent hunting in Montana.
Another trip around the sun
Whether you celebrate Christmas or Chanukah, another holiday or nothing at all, this time of the year is full of traditions.
That’s why I asked our staff – Erin, Susanne and Caitlin – to each write a short paragraph about how they celebrate the season with their friends and families. Here’s what they had to say.
Basketball is life in Kansas. Where I grew up, going to a University of Kansas (KU) Jayhawks basketball game was a kind of a religious experience. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, founded the KU basketball program in 1898. The atmosphere at Allen Fieldhouse, where the Jayhawks play their home games, is raucous and contagious. Whether you’re by the student section (wild!) or sitting in comfortable seats right behind the bench, you’re one with the fans and invested in the team.
“Rock, chalk, Jayhawk, KUUU-uuuuuu!”
A busy hunting season drew to a close on Nov. 29 and now the real work begins. Mike and I process our own meat, which I think is really cool, but quite the undertaking.
