KitKat, or so I call him, is starting to own the place. I've seen him twice on the front lawn, and hope he'll start hunting the mole(s) that pushes up mounds of soil on the grass.

you had me at 'a sweater and a down vest on the chair!"
The newspaper has been serving this area since 1908 so is well established. The number of subscribers has decreased over the past decade as the rural population is less concentrated than it once was. There used to be "a family on every quarter-section." Now you can drive for miles without seeing a farmyard, as the size of farms has grown and so has the size of machinery. We often blame newspaper troubles on the internet but the fact is that specifically local news here isn't to be found on the internet, so we still have our faithful readers.
