That is the stark reality of autism. And receiving a diagnosis for someone you love is life changing. For many families in Great Bend and the surrounding area, autism is something they must deal with every day. It can be isolating, lonely, and scary and resources in this area of the state are very limited. Fortunately, three area agencies are working together to form Connecting the Pieces-a ...

The Time is NOW!!!

All fishermen (and women) love to brag and show their catch before it gets to the dinner table. A limit of five walleye is no small accomplishment. It looms larger when fishing on the lakes that have a 18 inch limit as opposed to the 15 inch limit on other lakes. I'm not sure why the regulations aren't standard across the state. There are several things about the regulations that I feel could make fishing better for all of us. The major rule in my estimation that is harmful is the 50 fish limit for crappie. A decent ...

Thank You, Nebraska Republicans!

I've never quite understood why Republicans will jump to trash talk big government-gleefully calling to eradicate the IRS, NSA, EPA, CIA, etc.-all while embracing the death penalty.
