Naked woman at Elks Lodge golf tourney fires up wives, gadgets for people who hate mornings, and school bans Kurt Vonnegut books


Good Morning Humboldt County!

Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and let’s see what’s happening beyond our piece of paradise: 

Naked woman at golf tournament angers Woodward officials

“City officials said they are angry that a naked woman was part of a charitable golf tournament hosted on a municipal golf course. Elks Lodge No. 1355 hosted the golf tournament in July at the Boiling Springs Golf Course. The event is a fundraiser for the lodge's annual rodeo, Elks Rodeo Chairman Neal Day said.”

I hear the leading golfer was having problems with his short game. However, with concentration, choking up on his putter, and shortening his stroke, the golfer was able to put it in the hole!!

10 gadgets for people who hate mornings

Do you hate mornings? Do you spend your days in a groggy stupor? Are you a bit of a masochist?

If you answered yes to these questions, you might find the following gadgets useful.

They will help you get up and get to work on time so you can fall asleep when the boss isn't looking.

Is that a promotion I smell? Wow, success smells a lot like bacon — but that might just be my alarm clock.


Vonnegut library offers banned book to students

“Up to 150 students at a Missouri high school that ordered "Slaughterhouse-Five" pulled from its library shelves can get a free copy of the novel, courtesy of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, library officials said on Thursday.”

What led up to this situation? Believe it or not…just one person.

“The Republic School District took the move at its April 18 meeting following a complaint lodged by local resident Wesley Scroggins in the spring of 2010.

In his complaint, the Missouri State University associate business professor called on district officials to stop using textbooks and other materials "that create false conceptions of American history and government or that teach principles contrary to Biblical morality and truth."

Pretty pathetic isn’t it? How is it lone extremists manager to get their way against a majority? It seems to be the story of our country in the 21st Century. It was certainly the story during our contrived debt ceiling fiasco.

Time to walk on down the road…
