THE VIEW FROM THE EDGE OF TOWN It's Holiday Time
If we all could take a minute away from personal attacks, maybe we could focus...even for a second...on something much more important.

FARMBLEAT Linked by a backyard fence and 4-H
The chain-link fence that envelopes my back yard does nothing to close me off from my immediate neighbors. We lean on the fence, toss balls over the fence, their dog runs under the fence and, well, du... Posted on 8/7/13 at 8:55 PM

Neighbors, in recently listing people from the Fargo-Moorhead region who made it big in the world of entertainment over the years, missed some major stars. “You can’t forget Angie Dickinson, from Kulm, N.D.,” wrote John Donahue, Fargo. But yes we did, John, as Myron Finsterling also pointed out when he wrote, “You neglected Angie Dickinson. In today’s parlance, she was ‘hot.’ ”
Bill Kuebler has really been around, literally. He’s a captain for American Airlines.
But he got his start in Moorhead, where he was born, and in Fargo, where he grew up.
A month after he graduated from high school, Bill enrolled at the Air Force Academy. He graduated in 1979, and then was on active duty with the Air Force flying T-38s and F-4 Phantoms until 1987. He joined American Airlines in 1988.
Here’s feedback concerning past Neighbors’ topics.
The story: Carey McWilliams, the Fargo man who has gained fame as a hunter even though he is blind, was going to be filmed by HBO as he hunted for mountain lions in Nevada in February.
It was Jan. 4, 1938, when 18 people gathered in Fargo to form a stamp club.
Their first order of business was what to name it. Their decision was to call it the WDAY Stamp Club, because they met in the WDAY radio studios.
One December night in 1994, Victor Gelking received a phone call from his 13-year-old grandson, Jared Cunningham, of Atascadero, Calif.
Jared told Grandpa Vic he was going to be tall like him some day. But the big news was that he’d just played in a baseball game in which he hit two homers.
An email came recently from a woman who objected to this column’s use of the term “gals.” She said it was “sexist.”
Wondering if that term – and the use of “guys,” which the woman also doesn’t like – offended others, Neighbors asked for this column’s readers’ opinions.
You wouldn’t think Lance Johnson of Dilworth, famed for his Johnson Organ Co. and his organ playing, would ever hit a wrong note. But he admits he did, in terms of behavior, when he was a kid in Fergus Falls, Minn., becoming what he calls “the subject of a new type of punishment that I can assure you is 100 percent effective.”
Even though Gary Westerholm and his wife, Joyce, of Fargo, are spending the winter in Surprise, Ariz., they keep an eye on things back home. So, with North Dakota celebrating its 125th year of statehood, Gary has dug up what he calls “some little-known facts” about the state, adding “I bet even those of you living there don’t know some of this.”
