Although we haven’t had that big cold snap we sometimes get around Thanksgiving that drops temperatures to twenty below or colder for a few days, temperatures so far in November have been pretty consistently below average, sometimes by more than 10 degrees F. According to Intellicast historical data, Driggs “should” be solidly in the 40s by day and the low 20s at night. At the time of this writing, we haven’t seen it reach 40 at the airport in Driggs since November 5. Even if we get back to more normal 40 degree weather by the time this is published, it probably won’t be long before more cold air descends on us from the north.

A+ Holiday Heroes Chili Cook Off. For the first time in a long, long time I couldn’t make it to Friday night’s annual event, but I’m told a great crowd turned out in the first year at the Beardmore Event Center of Bellevue. More important, folks who donated $10 for an extremely worthy cause to attend were treated to some of the finest chili this side of Harrison Street. Good work everyone.

Utah Farm Bureau members are meeting this week for their annual convention. This voluntary organization of farm and ranch families refers to themselves as “the voice of agriculture.” As an organization, Farm Bureau has wielded significant impact on diverse policy for the last 100 years. Sometimes outsiders wonder why Farm Bureau members get involved with issues that may be considered non-agricultural. The fact that we are citizens first and farmers second invites serious dialogue on a multitude of topics. One topic that promises to garner lively debate this year on the delegate floor is the potential implementation of a Road Usage Charge (RUC) to generate much needed transportation revenue.

"Farmers and hysteria." First look up the actual words that Rep. Kevin Cramer used. Compare them with the words the Democrats are using. Second, I want to mention that the two most important systems to myself are "farmers and police/military" agencies. Judge my words as you wish. But, if honesty is a factor, then I am presenting honesty.

Running for president in 2016, Donald Trump sold two kinds of populism. One appealed to white tribalism and xenophobia — starkly in his early embrace of birtherism, recurrently in his exaggerations about immigrant crime, Muslim terrorism and urban voter fraud.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You remember difficult times, who helped you out of them and who put you in them. Where it gets really complicated is when both categories point to the same person. You're still figuring out how to place your trust. Take your time.

Dear Annie: Many years ago, I was in the U.S. military. I was sent to Southeast Asia and served three six-month tours. On my last tour, I suspected my wife had an affair, but I had no proof. While I was in training for a job after I was released from active duty, I heard that my wife had spent the night with one of the men from the base. I confronted her, but she lied to me; her good friend eventually told me the truth. I believe she was faithful to me after that for maybe 15 years. But our relationship was strained. There was passion, but there was always that element of distrust.
