The Wetland Explorer

One of the best parts about working at Cheyenne Bottoms is talking with visitors that stop here. One thing staff at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center have noticed is that almost everyone has a story about Cheyenne Bottoms. If you follow the news items posted in the Great Bend Tribune, you know that most stories about Cheyenne Bottoms logically include information about birds, bird-watching, hunting, and wildlife; that is what Cheyenne Bottoms is famous for. However, some of the most interesting stories and memories we get to hear from visitors to the Kansas Wetlands Education Center concerning Cheyenne Bottoms have ...

And So It Blows

Thursday was Jack Kilby Science Day at Barton with hundreds of area high school students in attendance. After the main presentation, students attended two different sessions from 10 a.m. until noon.

The wind had picked up since ...

Riders gain an audience at 8th Annual Rosewood Rodeo

A larger-than-usual crowd of about 300 people was on hand at Great Bend's Expo III Arena to start the rodeo, due in part to a special morning performance by the Double Trouble Trick Riders. The extra attention brought on some early performance jitters, but the riders quickly adjusted and performed well, said Rosewood Ranch manager Eric Hammond.

How Many More Wars?

Last week President Obama sent Congress legislation to authorize him to use force against ISIS "and associated persons and forces" anywhere in the world for the next three years. This is a blank check for the president to start as many new wars as he wishes, and it appears Congress will go along with this dangerous and costly scheme.
