Caught My Eye…

Common sense is a flower that doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden. – Anonymous

Welcome to the big show! If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” has been posted here every Friday morning since October 2010! This column is where I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of snarkiness to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Today I write about Malmstrom AFB, Juneau vs Zinke, Obama veto, Hillary Clinton testifies, Fan Duel/Draft Kings & Montana, Toronto Blue Jays & Kansas, plus much more!

Caught My Eye…

Note to readers: Please take a moment today to pray for the folks around Roseburg, Oregon, where a shooting occurred at a local community college.

Also, a U.S. Air Force C-130J transport plane crashed overnight at an air base in eastern Afghanistan, killing six American airmen and 5 civilians, so please pray for these brave people and their families.

Today I write about MilCon & VA Approps, Obama’s remarks about Oregon shooting, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and much more!
