A Wall Street friend told me he thinks that the October Bureau of Labor Statistics report's deceptions are so great that Disneyland must have written it. For the umpteenth straight month, the mainstream media cherry-picked the handful of positive statistics but buried profoundly troubling data.

JETMORE - The rally never came. The Central Plains High School football team slowly fell behind Hodgeman County on Saturday night during an Eight-Man Division-I state playoffs second-round game. The Oilers outscored the Longhorns 14-6 in the final quarter, but couldn't make up the distance for a 44-36 loss to end their season. Things started off well. Central Plains quarterback Braeden Crites connected with Carson Kirmer for a 55-yard touchdown just 17 seconds ...

HUTCHINSON - It was quite a run to the end of the season, but that end finally came on Monday afternoon for the Barton Community College volleyball team, as they found their legs late in the season and kept that going all the way to the NJCAA Region VI semifinals where Barton suddenly fell apart halfway through the match.
The Great Bend Recreation Commission, both recreation centers, City Auditorium and Cavanaugh Wellness Center will be closed today through Sunday for the Thanksgiving holiday. Regular hours will resume on Monday.

HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?
With the holidays getting into full swing, life for most of us is getting hectic. Between all the big meals, the parties, the kids needing treats for their classes, never mind our day jobs...! Who has time for it all?
After another week of making desserts for events, I've decided pies are a good thing.
Actions speak louder than words. Oh, how true that is. With Thanksgiving tomorrow, so many of us will have a "cheat day" and opt for the second helping of stuffing or an extra dollop of whipped cream on our pumpkin pie.
Great Bend Tribune Managing Editor Dale Hogg and his wife, Volunteers in Action Volunteer Coordinator Linn Hogg, have embarked on this two-month lifestyle change experiment as a couple.
