HOME COUNTRY: Do You Really Have To Go?

Slim Randles | CNBNews Columnist Teachers in rural schools are special. Unlike the great city amalgamated and homogenized institutes of lower learning, the rural schools tend not to have teachers who are putting in time until their heart stops. And it’s a mixed blessing, because rural schools sometimes have to hire someone whose only qualification is a pulse. But there are those rural teachers who go down in SLIM RANDLES legend for their creativity. Like John Lewis. After his first semester teaching at the high... Read more →

NRA-ILA: Bloomberg Dismisses Texas Hero

Insists It Wasn’t His “Job” to Have a Gun or Decide to Shoot SUPPORT NRA-ILA Jack Wilson – a 71-year-old congregant of the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Tex. – is a hero to most Americans.

He exposed himself to danger to deliver a single shot from his lawfully carried handgun that instantly ended what undoubtedly would... Read more →

Murphy Signs Bill That Bans Shark Fins

Yesterday, Murphy signed S2905 (Singleton), which prohibits certain possession, sale, trade, distribution, or offering for sale of shark fins. “The shark population has been decimated. This legislation will go a long way toward helping protect them in New Jersey. Shark finning has led to the overfishing and overexploitation of shark species. Since shark fin soup is a delicacy, the fins are sold at high prices resulting in tens of millions of sharks being killed every year. This has led to a dramatic decrease in the... Read more →

Home Country: The Philosophy Counter

Slim Randles | CNBNews.net (Gloucestercitynews.net)(January 8, 20120)--It happened when two unfamiliar truck drivers came in the Mule Barn and took seats at the Round Table. Not that we wouldn’t have invited them to sit down, if they’d asked. Hey, we’re friendly guys. Usually we’re at the counter … you know … the Philosophy Counter.

NRA-ILA: Crime in Virginia is Falling – Governor Focuses on Making You a Felon

MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2020 SUPPORT NRA-ILA Disgraced Governor Ralph Northam and his anti-gun allies in the newly elected legislature have made it clear they are hell-bent on enacting gun control. They want to take your guns and they want taxpayers to fund it. They’ve seen the same research that has shown that gun control doesn’t work. Violent crime in Virginia fell for the second consecutive year, and the Commonwealth has the fourth lowest violent crime rate in the nation – also for the second consecutive... Read more →

NJ Sierra Club Opinion: Menhaden Fishing Quota Bill Released from Committee

Maryland’s Mentored Hunt Rejuvenates Childhood Dream

A Hunter’s Story: December 2019 Hunting turkey. Photo by Maribeth Kulynycz. My passion for hunting began when I was a young girl, listening raptly to my dad’s bedtime stories about his childhood spent stalking birds with only a slingshot and a pouch of pebbles on his family’s farm. When I got a job at a sporting goods store, I fell in love with hunting for real. My exposure to the store’s hunting department was like something familiar and new all at the same time, even...

GUEST OPINION: Pennsylvania AG Targets Partially-Manufactured Receivers, Gun Owners

HARRISBURG PA--On December 16, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro issued a convoluted interpretation of state gun law that will have broad implications for Keystone State gun owners. The attorney general’s letter expanded the state’s statutory definition of “firearm” to include almost any material that has the potential to be fashioned into a firearm frame or receiver. The strained interpretation has the potential to effectively eliminate Pennsylvanians’ long-standing tradition of making their own firearms for personal use. Under federal law (18 U.S. Code § 921), the term... Read more →

Cranesville Swamp Maryland Offers a Glimpse into a Different Time and Climate

December 2019 Photo by Ashley Stimpson Most people come to western Maryland for the mountains — but Garrett County visitors who venture off the beaten path will find a remarkable and rare treasure tucked between the hills.

In this small, bowlshaped bog, a phenomenon known as a “frost pocket” creates a habitat more reminiscent of Alaska than Maryland. As weather patterns move east across the region, the hills surrounding Cranesville... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: Virginia Gov. Northam Proposing a Host of Anti-Gun Measures

As if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s wholesale attack on law-abiding gun owners wasn’t enough, the disgraced public official and his Michael Bloomberg-bought allies in the General Assembly now want the state’s hard-working taxpayers to foot the bill for their unconstitutional schemes. The budget bill (HB30) includes an appropriation of a quarter million dollars to carry out a host of gun control measures that Northam and his anti-gun allies hope to enact. The $250,000 is appropriated to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund in order to provide... Read more →

CNB Hunting/Fishing Maryland: Home on the Fringe: White-tailed Deer Thrive in Suburbs

December, 2019 MARYLAND--Suburban deer sightings are so common that few of us pay much attention anymore. White-tailed deer are everywhere – along the roadways, throughout our parks, and in our very own backyards. Many people incorrectly presume that these animals belong in the deep woods, and the ones wandering into our neighborhoods are refugees displaced by residential, commercial, or agricultural development. In fact, development actually creates better habitat for deer. White-tailed deer are a fringe species, exploiting the benefits of forested land for cover and... Read more →

Home Country: Windy Cheating at Solitaire?

Slim Randles | CNBNews.net The main problem, said Windy to himself, is a lack of variety. He got up from his kitchen table and poured a fourth cup of coffee. The weather outside was terrible, he didn’t have any work to do today, Ramses was healthy and asleep over next to the heater. Not bad, said the old cowboy philosopher and camp cook. I could do a lot worse, he thought. But still, there was that darn lack of variety. And it was this problem... Read more →
