BACKYARD BIRDING Okay, I have to admit, I am not a big time birder. What I mean is – I am not an expert when it comes to knowing bird species nor their biology and habits. I like birds when they aren't damaging crops or gardens. I enjoy their songs and sounds and enjoy watching their habits. They bring beauty and charm to the environment. They also benefit by eating troublesome insect pest at times. ...

Dear Editor, Just a thought: Now that the supreme court has approved the right to free speech at military funerals, it seems only just that cities should be able to recoup the additional expenses they incurred providing security and safety for those who promoted and conducted the protest. This ruling is sure to embolden those who promote and indulge in this type of behavior. Times are tough and this only serves to place an added ...
Dear Editor, I am writing in response to my colleague on the city council, Mr. Randy Meyers and his editorial in last Friday's Tribune titled "City needs to spread the bids around." As I read the first few paragraphs I became somewhat skeptical as to the factuality of a lot of Mr. Meyers' statements as I could not recall Venture Corp. having a significantly large project at the airport in the past few years. Not ...

We are saddened that ...

The saying, "A picture is worth 1000 words" is so true. In the case of my four month old grandson, we have a book started. Still nothing compares to actually holding, squeezing his chubby legs, or getting Bob to laugh out loud. As we enter the holiday season, families across the country hardly need a reminder that November 24th through the 30th is designated as National Family Week.
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.
