KUNTZ: A box of old stuff
The last time I saw my high school yearbook from 1967 ("Zee-ka-tow") was probably when we packed our belongings in Alaska and moved to Montana. That was in 1986. About a month ago, with my 50th JHS reunion approaching, I began speculating about which of the many boxes in our garage...

Fishing, stories and cigars
(First of two parts) For the third year in a row, we see a cow moose standing along the timber north of Roblin, Manitoba, and once we are in Saskatchewan, a black bear sprints from the edge of the gravel road leading to camp and scrambles up a white birch tree. On either side of...
