Mountain Messenger (no hair dye here) 10/18/17

Featured

So here we are again, another week another newspaper, the oldest weekly newspaper in California, the Mountain Messenger, we believe it is the primary source of intelligence information used by POTUS Trump. We have no real evidence to support this belief but in truth it would explain a lot of things that the Trumper says, except the fake news thing, there is never anything fake in the Mess (locals fondly refer to the Mess as the Mess). Don is with his Mom again, I think this is going to be her regular visit, cause Don and his beloved Irene always go there on vacation in October. So his Mom’s health is good and this is a normal yearly trip where Milly does all of the work, knowing she will get full credit and Jill will just be the gopher girl. It would be nice to surprise Don and buy a lot of subscriptions and ads and make sure Jill gets credit because she really is a nice girl even though Milly is prettier and friendlier.

Mountain Messenger (Chaos Quelled) 10/11/17

In spite of the rumors that chaos is reigning at the Mountain Messenger, although knowing Don, Milly, Peneople and Jill it would be easy to think, it totally is fake news. The only chaos brewing in our world now originates from another domain with an oval office and has nothing to do with real life in Downieville. Anyhow now that that is settled here is the real news. Well I don’t really have a lot, after tomorrow, Thursday, and the Mountain Messenger arrives in my postal box I will have the news. Of course it depends on the postal truck being able to get through the fires with our mail. Monday we had a holiday, Indigenous Peoples Day, Tuesday the truck got turned around by CHP with road closures due to the myriad of fires in northern California, so I can hardly breathe waiting to see what my mail brings me today…. although the breath thing might because of how much smoke is in the air… way too much…. so take it easy on your physical activity. So buy that subscription while your can and get all the news that fits…

Mountain Messenger (he’s home) 10/4/17

Yep it is true Don Russell is back in town and at his desk. I’m not sure what happened to him in Detroit, we hear his Mommy is doing well, very good news… but for some reason the Don is acting like every day is Wednesday and we are not allowed to address him. I mean normally he is always happy to sit back put his feet on the desk and let Jill, Milly or Penelope do all the work, I don’t even know if he has expressed any appreciation to Jill, Milly or Penelope for managing to produce some scintillating news in his absence. But he is back and we are all happy for that, I think. Meanwhile the world keeps turning, thank goodness. So we will get a taste of Don’s take on life in Sierra County this week, goody goody, can’t wait till tomorrow.

Mountain Messenger (good news rules) 9/27/17

The Mountain Messenger is the most read newspaper in Sierra County according to a poll conducted by the Western Alliance of Truthiness in 2016/17. Many advertisers were pleased with this news as they rely on newspaper advertising for their business profitability.  The past few weeks have been especially productive with news and events throughout the county and there just might be a slight breath before the Fall stuff begins… not very long though, there is the FEAST, and then OktoberFest and then Liz’s birthday, Miss Jody’s the December 7th San Francisco Opera- Girls of the Golden West starring Juanita or at least she has a couple of acts, lots of Downievillians are attending, so order your ticket and be there and have the opportunity to ask Don Russell for his autograph.

9/27/17 This is not Don Russell, it is a verified photo of Jill taken by Karen Galen. It is apparent Jill and Milly are different creatures.

Mountain Messenger (Freddy who?) 9/20/17

Where’s Don? There is a lot of speculation today that Don may have disappeared and it is strange that the women in the office, Milly, Jill, Penelope and Maricle are pretending like nothing is wrong. Apparently the Sierra County Sheriff’s Office is not concerned about the absence of Don, mentioning a past “chickenpoop” headline, the Board of Supervisors have elected to do nothing and just mention how lovely the new Mountain Messenger representative is at the Press Table. People in town have kind of forgotten what Don looks like with various descriptive values being given, tall, thin, plump, bearded, unshaven, long hair, scruffy looking, grouchy, egotistical…. wait that last isn’t a good descriptive, no one thinks Don has an ego, he is the most humble person anyone knows, more or less, maybe. Anyhow, any one who sees Don and can send a Photo atop  a copy of a dated Messenger as proof will get a free lunch at Coyoteville.

9/20/17 No I am not Don Russell, I am Freddy Gingg and I am looking for Patty, apparently a very big bird carried her off to Ireland… I don’t know what that is… but she forgot me…

Mountain Messenger (where’s Don) 9/13/17

Okay we give up, Don Russell where are you, come back little Sheba, come home, we miss you. Oh sure, she’s okay, and doing a fairly professional job, I mean there is always a front page about local stuff and things going on and all that jazz. But it isn’t the same without you. Brutus was on Main St. this morning, howling…. we’re not sure if it is about you being gone or maybe Batgirl, the little weird dog that lives with Don and MaryK is in heat, could be either or both or maybe Scott forgot to feed him, but he misses you too… Going back to “she”…A lot of confusion in the office as to who is in charge Jill, Milly, Penelope or Miracle, yes there is a new younger lady working up there manning the phones, she is really nice and friendly which causes a lot of confusion because normally, well I guess we all know what normal isn’t at the Mountain Messenger. Anyhow…..

9/13/17 A reminder of what Don Russell looks like, Kristy says she misses him too and is very concerned about the state his hair, beard and eyebrows may be in without care.

Mountain Messenger (a trancelike state) 9/6/17

Rumor is that the Mountain Messenger had a very important, well known somebody visit them today and since the Russell is with his Mommy, this very important person is stuck with meeting Jill or Milly or maybe both of them… Lee Adams is bringing John Coolidge Adams, an American composer of classical music and opera who’s latest work to premier by the  San Francisco Opera in November 2017 is Girls of the Golden West . Adams has a vacation residence near Sierra City and is familiar with local lore and legend. Juanita, who was the only female victim of a lynching in Sierra County in the 1800’s is one of the stories referenced in the opera.  So Jill/Milly will meet John and Don won’t, serves him right for loving his Mom more than us.

9/6/17 Every so often Don Russell enters a trance like state, this is confusing to many but, fortunately, Milly stays near to assist in his transition back to reality…

Mountain Messenger ($1 for Milly) 8/30/17

I’ve got an idea, anyone who wishes Milly would get a raise, please send $1 to Don Russell c/o Mountain Messenger, POB A, Downieville, Ca 95936. You may send it as a one dollar bill or four quarters taped to a piece of cardboard, pennies might be a problem but a check would be ok. If you are purchasing a subscription just add a dollar to the subscription price , with a note “for Milly”. Remember when you have subscription to the Mountain Messenger it includes free access forever to the sierracountyprospect.org .  Don’t tell Don the dollar thingy was my idea… let him take full credit.

It’s very apparent Milly can use $1 for Jill who really needs it so just tape your 4 quarters to a piece of cardboard and mail today

Mountain Messenger (no eye contact) 8/23/17

Another Wednesday and another Mountain Messenger will arrive in your mailbox tomorrow. This is the weekend the Clampers, known by their red shirts, charitable and historical work and their cheerfully descriptive language. And where will Don be…. with his Mommy. This is one of his favorite weekends with lots of fun and frivolity so we know he really loves his Mommy, I have met her and she is a really nice woman, and it is amazing that Don is her son, not that Don is not a good son, he is, he loves his Mom very much and we have to give him credit for being a good son.  Well I think I beat that issue to death, so let’s move on to Milly and Jill, word is that when Don is away, they like each other which leads us to believe that the competition and snarling that goes on between them is all about Don. I wonder if they realize the only woman he cares about is his Mom…oh and Irene, I understand he loves Irene almost as much as he loves his Mom. Darn it here I am back on the same topic, Don loving his Mom.  Well anyhow he always comes back to us. Say hi to your Mom please.

It’s very apparent the rule of no eye contact with the Don on Wednesday is true for his beloved Irene as she must face away from his desk while slaving for him…..

Mountain Messenger (Milly’s Raise) 8/16/17

Holy Moly… Don Russell never seizes to amaze us… he gave Milly a raise, the problem is it is based on her receiving at least two new subscriptions per week, so just think about it for a measly .55 cents a week you can help Milly feed her family, I understand she has a puppy, so please chip in buy a present for one of your relatives (specifically a subscription to the Mountain Messenger and they will enjoy the wit of Don and the joy of living in a “frontier county” (and official federal designation). I think it is 55 cents a week, the actual true cost is below, I’ve never been great at math especially when it involves odd numbers.

I did an online search for photos of Don Russell and this is what popped up… I’m not sure what this means…..

Mountain Messenger (cheer abounds) 8/9/17

I’m so sick of having to think of nice things to say about Milly or Jill, Penelope is wonderful and so is Brutus but I’m telling you, you’ve never worked with someone who brings out the best in you until you’ve worked with Milly. Whatever you do will be stellar compared to her, and you all know who HER is, at any rate, enough whining for now. I request the simplest thing…and do I get cooperation… well, you tell me… I would not know how to recognize cooperation if It ever appeared…. I Just thought of something…. I haven’t eaten anything in approximately 8 hours… that could be my problem… I’ll get something to eat and try again…

8/9/17 These guys do not work at the Mess, first one who identifies them correctly gets a burger and shake at Coyote…

Mountain Messenger (therapy is us) 8/1/17

I’ve discovered something, when something is bothering you there is no better therapist to talk to than Don Russell… who woulda thought… certainly not me. I’m a little hesitant to advertise this because he doesn’t hold regular office hours and is completely unreachable on a Wednesday, so no help then… the thing of it is… he just is so knowledgeable about so much and when he doesn’t know the answer then one realizes it really didn’t matter. After all one doesn’t know what one doesn’t know. Anyhow he is reachable at his office by phone or by email, often your questions are answered in the Mountain Messenger before you even knew you had the question, which is really outstanding. Please support this valuable community service by purchasing a subscription or maybe an ad to help Don continue in his true calling.

 

8/2/17 Don Russell has counseled Laurenc DeVita many times over many years… finally Laurenc took his family and moved to Alaska, however we just learned that Don has Larry’s email address….

Mountain Messenger (Competence Reigns) 7/26/17

Golly Gee Gosh, I met some people outside the Mountain Messenger office last Friday, they were dressed in suits and ties and as they approached me, I said, “okay you guys are either attorneys or church people”, in Downieville we can determine what strangers are by their attire. I was fairly certain they were Attorneys looking for Don Russell for some nefarious issue he was involved in… boy was I wrong… they actually were those people that go door to door Jehovah’s Witness (I think they said) offering us hope for the future after our death. The very most surprising thing of all was…. they had already met Don, at his home, and he had invited them into his humble abode. Absolutely amazing…. who would have thought Don would be a church people… but of course I had to do some research and I found that Don was raised a Baptist, another shock, and that he liked 7th Day Adventist and Mormons and Jehovah’s Witness, he finds them “honest and honorable” and enjoys their company. Of course there were no children involved in the conversation. On another issue Don  said he heard the Democrat’s had a new slogan, “Democrats for a better deal.” and he had made a new slogan for Republicans, “Republicans, Incompetence Better than Anarchy.” I personally prefer Democrats for a Fair Deal, nothing has been fair for us average folks since January 20, 2017.

7/26/17 Apparently Don Russell often takes time to pray in public but no one knew what he was doing…

Mountain Messenger (survey) 7/12/17

Jill has been trying to get Milly to order me to put a survey in this page about the Sierra County Prospect or maybe the Mountain Messenger. I agreed to do it and then it became very complicated and difficult to decipher exactly what she meant and how to put the survey up and then she refused to give me the questions, which leads me to believe her questions were directed at making her look good and me just fatter and older, I don’t know but I am glad it didn’t work. Meanwhile our online presence is supposed to be an aider and abetter to the Mess. I don’t know why Don laughs when he is reminded of the sisterly connection in our publications. I love the Mess, most of my readers love the Mess, the Mess is the most unique weekly newspaper in the nation. not only is it filled with local news, it is completely apolitical, so no one ever gets upset when they read it, this is mostly because Don Russell only cares about truth and justice and is never ever ever fake. For the Real Stuff read the Mountain Messenger.

7/12/17 Don Russell and Larry Allen are friends again and were seen having lunch at Coyoteville today, newlywed Jon Peek was also there to make sure the peace was kept. (Jon is not in the picture because I didn’t have my camera and the picture was taken earlier this year or maybe late last year…

Mountain Messenger (likes kids) 7/5/17

Guess what Don is concerned about the future of our children. We were discussing the merits or non merits of having any type of commercial endeavor in Sierra County involving  marijuana, keeping marijuana and alcohol out of the brains of children until they had fully developed is an item of concern. He thinks we adults can do any damage we like to our brains with substances like beer and pot but not so for the kiddies, because then they might grow up to vote for someone like Trumpinski (okay he didn’t say that I was just thinking).  This is a whole side of Don I have never seen before. Of course the last thing he said is, “I need those little sweeties (not exactly the term he used) to be able to take care of me in my dotage.” I think his time spent with his mother is making him more empathetic or maybe he is just getting older, or maybe he just forgot how much he doesn’t like children.
