Well, this is odd. The heck with an exit strategy. We can't even work out an admittance maneuver. The automatic door-opener that proved so reliable for presidents past has short-circuited and keeps slamming shut whenever Barack Obama tries to enter the war store with his empty shopping cart.
On September 11, 2001, I wrote a column entitled "Now We Know How Israel Feels." Now, 12 years later, with a community organizer in the White House who has no idea about the proper use of America's military might, who believes our only real ally in the Middle East, Israel, is the cause of all the trouble there, and who opposed pursuing our enemies in Iraq and Afghanistan, I'm not sure we do.
Landscaping for the Barton County Historical Society's new Bushnell Building was done by Michael Sisson as his Eagle Scout project.

Weslie Jones appears disconnected from the world happening around her. The Great Bend High School student lives her young life with severe autism and she suffers from seizures, which are caused by her disorder. It's a vicious cycle for the 17-year-old because with increased seizure activity, which she has suffered through recently, Weslie becomes even more withdrawn.
United Way of Central Kansas has partnered with Walnut Bowl, Eagle Communications and the Great Bend High School Marketing Class to organize "Putt Putt Fore a Difference" on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 1-4 p.m. Three person teams are now being recruited to participate in the charity fundraiser.

In the Barton County Commission story that appeared in the Tuesday, Sept. 17, issue of the Great Bend Tribune, it was incorrectly reported that an oil well on land owned by the Reed family produced 42,000 barrels of oil per year since it was drilled in 2007. In fact, it has produced a total of 42,000 barrels in that span. The Tribune regrets the error.
