MARSH MUSINGS

Times are tough and exuberant in the marsh these days. For the fish and crustaceans that require water-- it is a critical time and many will perish. There is essentially no water in 85-90% of the Cheyenne Bottoms. Huge numbers of birds have moved on north-- either due to their migration instincts, or by the necessity to find food. For the shore birds, gulls, herons, Ibis, avocets and black-necked stilts and some of the ducks-- it is a feast of gigantic proportions.

Celtics trail Heat 2-0 as series shifts to Boston

MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Heat know what's coming from the Boston Celtics. "Their all," Dwyane Wade said. That's what usually happens when one team is fighting to save its season - and in this case, the Big Four era in Boston might be at stake as well. The NBA Eastern Conference finals shift to Boston tonight for Game 3, with the Heat holding a 2-0 lead after staving off perhaps the Celtics' best shot to win a classic. Boston's core of Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen combined to score 96 points in Game 2 ...

It’s time to divide Bearded Iris

Showy, elegant, and easy are terms that describe bearded iris flowers, and because they grow so well in the heartland, it's a good idea to divide them every few years, according to Kansas State University horticulturist, Ward Upham.

Where Are Those Polts?

There are several breakfast or coffee meetings in our area. They are usually comprised of the same core group with a few occasional stragglers that drop in. I have observed that politicians want to "test the water" by making a photo op and pretend to be interested in the ideas or conclusions of these "grass root" citizens. Excuse me if I don't see the common sense of our coffee clatches reflected in the national debate and policy- we are usually befuddled by the actions of those we thought we elected to represent us. We have firm ideas and opinions ...

Rumpus Chumpus Trumpus

For all those bemoaning the lack of noise in the Republican presidential sweepstakes, it's time to get down on our knees and give thanks to Donald Trump because whatever that man touches turns to loud. He's the gift that keeps on blaring. Has all the delicate innuendo of concrete curtain rods. Not just a loose cannon, more like a loose aircraft carrier.
