Who are these people and what are they doing? These are my parents, Marie and Ted Renner. They are playing on their iPad. They belong to a new generation of iPadders. (Parents Are Defining Different Entertainment Rules.) In October, my mom announced that she wanted an iPad for her...

Renner: Removing leaves sure can blow
By Mickey Renner Ah, autumn, that awesome time of the year. Some people even proclaim fall as their most favorite season. They love the smell of cool, clean, crisp air as opposed to the dusty, dry and stale air of summer. I have to agree. It is pretty amazing that Mother Nature...

Sidewalk Thoughts: Stupid Smartphones - Siri-ously
I have been doing some more research on the iPhone. I found out that the phone is so smart because there is this woman that lives inside the phone and she is an amazing personal assistant. Her name is Siri. Siri actually stands for Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface....

Renner: Barkin' in the Bakken
There are so many issues of living in a boomtown other than the obvious. I feel obligated to inform the general public of these little annoyances. I feel this way mostly because of the whole "misery loves company" aspect. When we think of the influx of people we don't automatically...

Renner: Life is a Trip Part III - PT 101

Renner: Life is a Trip Part I - Don't be alarmed
I cannot tell you how glad I am it is this year and not last year. On July 1, 2012, I stepped on my alarm clock. I know what you are thinking. What was my alarm clock doing on the floor or why was I walking on my nightstand next to the bed? The answer to either of these two questions...

Renner: Welcome to Dickinson
Without a doubt, Dickinson is suffering some growing pains. There are many disgruntled longtime residents that have legitimate complaints. It seems to me that the city itself and the local newspaper try to curb criticism and encourage welcoming acceptance and tolerance. I tend to...
