Bernie Kuntz: A destruction of Labradors
Some dog owners choose to buy a "started dog" about six months in age to spare the loss of $1,500 worth of personal belongings destroyed during a puppy's teething stage, which often lasts many months beyond the teething. Me, I've always gone the difficult route, buying a puppy at...

Bernie Kuntz: Paper route
My first job was that of a newspaper carrier, or paper boy was what we called them in those days, for the Jamestown Sun—Route 48 in the southeast part of town. I think I was 11 years old when I took over the route from Glen Mara, so it would have been about 1960. The Sun was...

Bernie Kuntz: Stay ready to defend hunting freedom
One of the joys for me while growing up in North Dakota was the luxury of being able to hop into a vehicle, drive 10, 15 or 20 miles, park the vehicle and go hunting on foot. As long as I was not on posted land, I was perfectly legal. It gave me a wonderful sense of freedom. That...
