Columns

Of the 308 Wordchipper (SM) columns I wrote for the weekly F-M Extra newspaper over a six year period, I've selected some to share here. All are in the Adobe Acrobat PDF format for easy printing; most are sized to 8.5 x 11, however, there are a few that are in full column size. Your printer can size these to fit on a lettersize piece of paper, however, the print will be smaller. I'll be adding more to this list from time-to-time as I rummage through my archive (on some computers, you may have to "right-click" on the link and select "open in new window")
