The Time Ranger

ElectionsVoteYou’ll have to excuse me, but I am plumb enthusiastic over our trail ride. I think it’s going to be rather epic and unique. Next to Buffalo Tom overturning a train in 1928, we’ve got the second worst train robbery in SCV history. T(more..)


ElectionsVoteFriends. Neighbors. Democrats. We have ourselves one epic trail ride through local history ahead. I mean to tell you: Epic. If you’re perusing this over breakfast (and I hope you’re not reading in church) you’re going to need mor(more..)


ElectionsVoteMake sure you’re wearing your winter duds. There’s snow ahead in our time traveling forecast. We’ve also the weirdest darn traffic accident in local history to go along with an entire passel of heroes, villains and gee whiz events. (more..)


ElectionsVoteFoof and boy howdy. We’ve a sometimes dangerous trek into the back trails of yesteryear, what with vicious attack dogs, cattle rustlers, one of the harshest op/eds ever to run in America. Gasp. C’mon, dear neighbors and saddlepals. Hol(more..)

ElectionsVoteDon’t look at the clock or calendar. Throw them away. You and I are going to take a deep breath, abandon all cares and woes, climb atop a fine steed and head into the perfected yesteryear. We’ve a most interesting trek ahead on this hist(more..)


ElectionsVoteHeavens to Betsy. It CAN’T BE two weeks before Christmas! Despite the things to do, we’ve got bona fide Time Ranger chores ahead. There’s zombie sightings in the SCV. Yup. Boy howdy. The walking living dead. Odd stuff this close to(more..)
