Ralph Ronald Crawford’s New Book, “Twisted Tales: Growing Up and Old in the Mountains of Montana,” is a Witty Collection of Stories from the Author’s Outdoorsy Upbringing

 Ralph Ronald Crawford, a native Montanan with a passion for the outdoors, has completed his new book, “Twisted Tales: Growing Up and Old in the Mountains of Montana”: an exciting and humorous journey through the tall tales told out in rural log cabins and mining camps.

“‘Twisted Tales: Growing up and Old in the Mountains of Montana’ is a collection of true-life adventures, tall tales, half-truths, and a few out-and-out lies,” writes Crawford. “You, the reader, decide which you can take to your grave as the ‘god’s’ honest truth or are the misadventures of an overactive imagination of a fellow who spent way too much time in the great outdoors of Montana, his recollection distorted by being too long in the tooth to accurately recall anything of importance in the past.

“When the last page is turned, my hope is that you will have been enlightened somewhat along the way, which end of a shooting iron is the business end, when to pull the trigger, and when not. You come away with a little chuckle and a smile when you think back to the day you read this introduction into my life.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Ralph Ronald Crawford’s new book is the result of an adventurous life spent in and around the capital city of the beautiful state of Montana. Crawford spent much of his childhood in an old log cabin up in the mountains, encountering many colorful characters. He lovingly retells the stories from the “old-timers, trappers, and miners” of his youth.

Montana has more recently become known as the “Last Best Place,” but this is something Ralph Ronald Crawford has known all his life. He has come to realize that some of the best outdoor recreational activities in the entire United States can be found within a fifty-mile-radius of Helena. Land this rich in experiences is also rich in stories, and Crawford now shares his wealth of tales with readers.

Readers can purchase “Twisted Tales: Growing Up and Old in the Mountains of Montana” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.

Ronald Wagner’s New Book, “Which One Are You,” is a Spellbinding Account of the Author’s Life That Explores the Struggles and Challenges He and His Family Endured

 Fulton Books author Ronald Wagner, who resides on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, not far from where the Ice Age–old glaciers once lay, has completed his most recent book, “Which One Are You”: a profound memoir detailing the author’s life from his upbringing on the family farm with his beloved twin brother, and the many trials and adventures they both experienced that forever shaped the men they would become.

Ronald was born a country farm boy, along with twin Roger, into a family of seven kids, being the youngest, in the Pacific Northwest in Centralia, Washington. They ventured and explored the woods, river, and slough bottoms of the one hundred acres where they lived in the far corner of their grandpa’s dairy farm. Growing up was fun having a twin as a best friend, and they adopted who would become their dearest friend, Good Golly. They won a lotto that they could have lived without, and they had to be farmed out to their older siblings and live out of a camper before their world would change forever.

“This story was told with every intention of being honest, to the best of my ability, with the recollections and remembrances of all events and stories told between Roger, Walt, and me (the author),” writes Wagner. “It is written with respect to all characters, fiction or nonfiction, and all situations that were played out. My life journey will reflect on trials, tribulations, hardships, misfortunes, confrontations, accidents, death, and mystery. It will also reflect the fulfillment of happiness above everything and those current relationships as well as the ones that may seem over, which doesn’t mean they’re dead, simply that they aren’t growing.”

Published by Fulton Books, Ronald Wagner’s book is a captivating tale that is sure to take readers on an unforgettable journey as they witness how the author and his family overcome countless trials and obstacles life placed on their path. Expertly paced and deeply personal, Wagner crafts an intimate self-portrait that is sure to remain with his readers long after its conclusion.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Which One Are You” at select bookstores, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.

4 Ways Ronald McDonald House Charities Is Helping Foster a More Sustainable Future


Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has long been known for its dedication to supporting families with sick children in their time of need. And with more than 685 programs in 62 countries and regions, the nonprofit’s impact is astounding – which is just one reason why McDonald’s has been a proud supporter of RMHC since it was founded in 1974. In addition to providing comfortable, family-centered spaces for families to be together, RMHC is also committed to making those spaces more sustainable for generations to come.

In fact, RMHC incorporates sustainable design principles and features in 100% of all new construction, including 10 new programs that were added in 2021.

The charity’s ambitious commitment to the environment stretches across four key pillars, which are selected for improved comfort of guest families, minimized impact on the environment and ease-of-maintenance to ensure that RMHC programs remain available to serve families.

1. More Sustainable Design and Operations: With a wide variety of facilities covering a range of climates and cultures around the globe, RMHC program designs employ many sustainable design features, including maximizing solar exposure for solar panels, optimizing natural daylight and ventilation, and selecting eco-friendly, low-emitting materials and high-efficiency appliances and equipment. 


See it in action: The Ronald McDonald House in Perth was the first project in Western Australia to be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED Silver building, thanks in part to its water-efficient landscaping, indoor air-quality management plan and more.

2. Water: RMHC programs use water resources wisely by minimizing demand through best practices, such as selecting water-efficient appliances and fixtures, collecting rainwater and landscaping with native, drought-tolerant plants. 


See it in action: The Ronald McDonald House in Long Beach, California, is home to a native landscape that requires little water to maintain and provides a serene gathering place for families.

3. Energy: To help minimize energy demand, energy-efficient appliances, equipment and lighting are used in program designs whenever possible. RMHC programs are also increasing their use of renewable energy to minimize their environmental footprint. 


See it in action: The Ronald McDonald House in Madrid uses solar photovoltaic panels and solar thermal hot water to make the most of natural and renewable resources and to reduce energy demand.

4. Waste: There are several ways that RMHC Chapters manage waste that range from responsive meal planning to repurposing existing buildings to eliminate construction waste and leverage the energy and resources already embedded in those structures.

The Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, helps combat food waste through careful meal planning that reuses leftover ingredients in subsequent meals.

“I’m so proud of the work being done to ensure our RMHC programs are designed thoughtfully,” says Kelly Dolan, President and CEO of RMHC, Inc. “As a global organization, it’s incredibly important to ensure our initiatives are sustainable, so we can continue to keep families with sick children comfortable when they need it most.”

The ongoing investments RMHC is making in sustainable facilities and the efficient and effective use of natural resources help keep all local programs in peak condition and available to serve the families they care for.

In committing to a more sustainable future, RMHC can deepen the impact of its programs, help protect and preserve the environment and support healthy communities around the globe – all of which help the storied nonprofit organization deliver on its mission.
