There’s a joke that comedian Charlie Hill,  the first Native American to do comedy on network television, told on “The Tonight Show” in the 1970s: “I’m Oneida,” Hill said of his tribal affiliation. “My people are from Wisconsin. We used to be from New York.

Judi Wells This Week on Riding Shotgun With Charlie #93 ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Judi Wells is more than just an “accidental activist”.  She’s an unexpected gun owner, too.

Growing up in Canada and California, no one in her family liked shooting or went hunting. They hated guns. Four years ago, it was her husband’s “bucket list” that changed everything. He wanted to buy a g...

Woven Poetry: Thoughtful and Practical Brooms from Sunhouse Craft in Kentucky

I’m not usually one for Valentine’s Day, but I would take a beautiful broom or well-designed utilitarian implement anytime (as my boyfriend knows—he got me a table crumber one year, Iris Hantverk dish brushes on another occasion; we frequently give each other brushes and scrubbers of all sorts).

What I Learned Writing a Trilogy

In October 2016, I began writing Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire. It’s about a kid who moves to the mountains of Colorado, where he joins the Rangers.
