This paper is dated Nov. 12 -- we’re right between the end of the World Series and the beginning of the holiday season, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I’m not sure how many people watch the series without having the Twins or Brewers involved but I watched just about every inning.

My wife and I made a trip to the Black Hills a couple of weeks ago, but the highlight of the trip was my effort to properly use a selfie stick! The trip was great and we had beautiful weather. Before we left we decided we needed a selfie stick. As my wife would always say, “Doug’s never in any of our pictures.” We left early on a Wednesday morning and made our first stop in the Badlands that afternoon. I broke out the selfie stick and did nothing but struggle to get the right positioning.

The North Hudson Village Board again approved an annual deer bow hunt in the village to help thin the deer population. As in past years, the contract is with RiverValley Deer Management, LLC operated by local resident Lon Feia. The service is provided free of charge to the village. Feia said the annual bow hunt helps control the number of deer in the village which reduces car-deer accidents and addresses complaints from residents about deer being a nuisance in respect to their yard and gardens. Feia said the group harvested 19 deer last year and 14 the year before that.
