AMY KIRK: What the Gospel says about gates

AMY KIRK: Community service -- ranch style
A common theme on farms and ranches is if you're going to do something, do it BIG. It could be anything from buying equipment, getting equipment stuck, making mistakes, having machinery breakdown or going into debt. My son, Myles, has taken such logic to a whole new level: helping...

AMY KIRK: Calves that cross the bridge
The problem with highways is that some asphalt users travel them at a high rate of speed, creating highway chaos -- and no one causes more mayhem than hot-hoofed baby calves. The thought of such instances are the reason why hesitancy and worry filled my mind the other night over...

AMY KIRK: Ranching reality TV
This time of year the extent of our entertainment opportunities are limited to watching baby calves eat for the first time. They put on an addicting show. We watch them the way some people watch "Duck Dynasty," "Dancing with the Stars," or, dare I say it, "Downton Abbey." This year's...

AMY KIRK: The many faces of frustration
