• CHANCY

    He was an orphan from the hills of Tennessee and he hadn’t eaten in three days. With the front of his stomach making friends with the back, he was in no position to let an opportunity slip by unnoticed. And when Chancy defended his new herd of cattle with a shotgun, he didn’t miss. The dead man left a pistol on the ground. Chancy needed a spare and, after stowing it in his bedroll, forgot about it. He had a cattle drive to finish and a profit to make.

    But the gun had a history. Another killing had taken place and Chancy would never know the truth until it was too late. Now, locked in a jail cell with an angry, drunken mob outside and time running out, he must somehow find a way to prove his innocence.

  • CHECKERBOARD GRILL

    Checkerboard Grill is a collection of magazine ads detailing Oliver tractors and farm equipment. When Oliver introduced each tractor with the “Checkerboard Grill,” they took a big step forward with their new design. Some of these tractors lasted through the end of Oliver and into the early White Series with only minor upgrades, which is a credit to their good engineering. Their advertising agency put a different look or accent on things as time went by. This is not a complete history, but a look at some of the ads from this time period. You will find many good images to use for restoring your project. All ads and images are from the personal collection of Tim Putt.

  • CHEDDAR

    One of the oldest, most ubiquitous and beloved cheeses in the world, cheddar has a fascinating history. Over the years it has been transformed from a painstakingly handmade wheel to a rindless, mass-produced block, to a liquefied and emulsified plastic mass untouched by human hands. The Henry Fordism of cheddar production in many ways anticipated the advent of industrial agriculture. They don’t call it “American Cheese” for nothing.

    Cheddar is one man’s picaresque journey to find out what a familiar food can tell us about ourselves. Cheddar may be appreciated in almost all American homes, but the advocates of the traditional wheel versus the processed slice often have very different ideas about food. Since cheddar—with its diversity of manufacturing processes and tastes—is such a large umbrella, it is the perfect food through which to discuss many big food issues that face our society.

    More than that, though, cheddar holds a key to understanding not only issues surrounding food politics, but also some of the ways we think of our cultural identity. Cheddar, and its offshoots, has something to tell us about this country: the way people rally to certain cheddars but not others; the way they extol or denounce the way others eat it; the role of the commodification of a once-artisan cheese and the effect that has on rural communities. The fact that cheddar is so common that it is often taken for granted means that examining it can lead us to the discovery of usually unspoken truths.

    Author Gordon Edgar (Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge) is well-equipped to take readers on a tour through the world of cheddar. For more than 15 years he has worked as an iconoclastic cheesemonger in San Francisco, but his sharp talent for observation and social critique were honed long before then, in the world of ’zines, punk rock and progressive politics. His fresh perspectives on such a seemingly common topic are as thought-provoking as they are entertaining.
