"Horses look down on us; they think we're around to service them," said Northern. "If you're late bringing their food, a horse thinks, 'what's the matter with that so-and-so?'

Jody'd like to know, "What About the Horse"???

Lunching with Jeff Kiewatt was like a shot of adrenaline to my information-starved mind

The article kept my attention (and my heart) and pretty soon I was out of the reception area and in the small room, still reading, waiting for the doctor. What a great article...

Just for the heck of it, I searched for more "blind beauty" stories and came across this one from Helena, Montana.

They're having a meeting in the Living Hope Ministry Center, located across the street from St. Francis Senior High School in downtown St. Francis this Saturday, at 9:30 am.
The boys also allegedly burned a home as well. Here is a video from WCCO.com
