Community Response

The primary sponsor of the corps was the local American Legion Argonne Post 180. The bond between the corps and the Legion was permanent, and the Post routinely funded new instruments, uniforms, and travel expenses to their state and nation championship contests and conventions.

How About These Beauties?

There are several birds at the Bottoms right now that are just stunning. My friends, Dodge and Lorna Engleman from Salina and San Antonio are here for their annual visit. They are world-class birding experts and travel internationally several times per year to see new birds in their natural environment. It is always a special treat for them to stop by.

Sustaining Agriculture – Part I

It's interesting how the meaning of a word changes depending on what person or group is using it and for what purpose. The term organic originally meant anything pertaining to living organisms or compounds containing carbon. Today in society it has evolved to denote foods grown without the use of "chemicals" such as synthetic pesticides, hormone implants and fertilizers and/or without the use of genetically engineered organism. Natural originally denoted the world around us and today it has evolved to mean foods with little or no processing, chemical additives or in a "non-factory farm." The term sustainable has ...

Trump’s Laughing at Us

Give Donald Trump this much: he knows how to play the media like a violin. If I had half his business brain I'd send him a bill for this column, because every time a serious journalist treats his campaign seriously it feeds his coffers.
