From the desk of Art Keffer

Well, the summer is about to pass us by, and school in Ellinwood is scheduled to start on Aug. 25. So here is a reminder for everyone. Watch for children riding their bicycles to and from school. We all need to be observant of the children walking as they cross at the intersections throughout the town.

Bully bully!!!

I thought he was exaggerating when my friend called and said he had snakes in large numbers in a water trap in his front yard. I grabbed the camera and drove out to his farm. I was amazed when he lifted the iron cover to expose the mass of reptiles inhabiting that small area. Practically every crevasse housed a serpent. They were mainly Bull Snakes with some King Snakes and Rat Snakes. The temperature was in the 70's, and the snakes were lively and active. There were no venomous snakes that I could discern. We agreed that the large ...

Hearts and minds

Each day, farmers and ranchers pull on their boots, roll up their sleeves and go to work outside rural communities across Kansas. They perform a litany of chores – feeding and doctoring livestock, cultivating their crops, pulling maintenance on machinery, paying bills – you name it and farmers and ranchers do it.

The End of the Civil War: The 150th Anniversary

When we were teenagers, my "the South's gonna do it again" younger brother bought into some weird conspiracy theory that Gen. Robert E. Lee didn't really surrender at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia. Lee supposedly thought he was merely handing his sword over to someone for cleaning. (The deniers who concocted the theory apparently also believed that Europeans never really landed in the New World but just filmed it out in the desert somewhere.)
