“You okay, budder?” are words that our dog, Lambeau, has heard many times in his life.
Some issues permeate society without regard to who you are or where you come from. Opioid addiction is one of those issues.
Keep it simple and safe Dear Dave,
You may have seen my first column as the new writer of the Gasper Gabble in last week’s edition. Since then, everything and nothing has changed. The alternate reality myself and my family are living in will never be fully settled into.
In the past week, I have entered an alternate reality.
Dear Dave,

Opinions

Dear Dave, I’m retired, and in the past few years I’ve taken up painting. This hobby has begun bringing in more money than I expected. I was wondering at what point I should start thinking about separating my art money from my personal finances, and look at officially starting a little business...
Tragedy is no stranger to our lives. Unfortunately, through the years, we'll each experience it numerous times. Such is the case when I received the call on Sunday afternoon about the passing of Terry Gasper, Lake Mills Graphic owner and publisher. Those words to describe Terry, owner and...
First off I want to give my prayers to the Gasper family before I dive into my memories and thoughts on Terry. They need as much support as possible through this tough time. Sherry is a very strong woman so I know she will be okay but she still needs time to heal and support from everyone. I am...
This past Sunday I received word that Terry Gasper had passed away suddenly. At first, I couldn’t believe the news. How could a guy like Terry be gone just like that? Anyone who knew Terry knew that he was a staunch democrat, but he was a man of his word and what he said, is what he believed....
Dear Terry, I sit here in shock on Monday morning. It is June 25, and I am reading an email you sent me last week while I was out on vacation letting me know posters were ready to be picked up. I have had the pleasure of being able to get to know you and Sherylee a little better over the last...
When a person passes from this world into whatever follows it, their lives and their presence are suddenly thrown into stark relief; mundane memories of passing interactions become mutable, prone to shifting shape in the light of their absence. What previously seemed like an inconsequential...
“Remember, remember always that all Of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” The above is a quote from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in a speech he gave to the annual convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Even back in Roosevelt’s...
Dear Dave, My father died recently. He walked out of my life 25 years ago when I was a teenager, and he never wanted anything to do with me after that. His brothers, who have already paid for some of his final expenses, asked if I wanted to pay to have his body cremated. They didn’t ask for money...
I recently read an article in another publication about Iowa’s recent anti-abortion legislation. The writer posed good questions while demonstrating clever use of pro-abortion logic. There were claims of inconsistency and deception by abortion opponents. A set of arguments was presented, and I want...
Dear Dave, I’m about to graduate from college, and while I’ve been in school my mom has been handling most of my finances. Recently, I discovered she’s been taking my student loan money and spending it on herself. So far, it looks like she’s taken around $12,000, and I have a total of $25,000 in...
