Having fun on the trail in 2017.

A hearty welcome to my blog, “Yael on the Trail,” where I specialize in writing “Opinions from the Midwest.”

My quick background: I worked as an editorial writer for 32 years for The Kansas City Star until October 2016, mostly writing about local and national political issues. I’m a liberal on many social matters. (Don’t get me started on gun nuts.) But I also came out against several taxes on Nov. 8, and most lost.

I am retired but do still hope to post a new item daily.

Here is my comment policy. To keep out spam, it requires a person to be a registered user to comment.

Please follow me on Twitter @YaelTAbouhalkah for updates about this blog as well as many other views on topics of the day.

I do accept donations, a maximum $5 via PayPal button at the bottom of each post. Credit cards also accepted.

Thanks for coming — I hope to irritate, inform and please you in the future.
