Perception challenged through vague notions of race in Morrison’s “Recitatif” | Book review

I first became acquainted with the work of Toni Morrison in college. Two of her books were required readings in my Honors program, “Sula” and “Beloved.” When her short story “Recitatif” came across my desk, I was pleasantly surprised and knew I should read it in honor of my professors who introduced me to her work. Originally published in 1983, “Recitatif” is now available at the Sterling Public Library.

It was a drug deal that prompted Craig Gilliland to run for Logan County Sheriff. Waiting in a drive-through line at a Sterling fast food spot recently, Gilliland said, he saw what could only have been a drug transaction in broad daylight.

Freedom Family Faith Farming

For Carl and Kathy Schneller, they couldn’t think of a better way to share their pride in agriculture and their country than to paint a 30-foot mural on one of their grain bins. The “bin bling,” which features a waving American flag, giant corn stalks, the name of their farming business and the Christian fish symbol, can be seen at their home on the south side of Highway 6 about a mile east of Holyoke.

OPINION: Ag economy reaches deeply into northeast Colorado communities

When people talk about the importance of agriculture to the economy of northeast Colorado – and I’m talking specifically of Sterling and Logan County – they tend to think in terms of cash sales of commodities and those support businesses like elevators, equipment companies, fertilizer sales and so on.
