I know other skilled hunters in similar spots that haven't killed a big deer in 20 years. I personally am somewhere in between. I have tried to find the common denominator ...

Father Tighe/Murphy

The movie "Spotlight" was recently nominated for an Academy Award. I watched it, like I watch most movies these days, alone at the Leawood Theater in Ranch Mart Shopping Center at 95th and Mission Road. "Spotlight" is a movie about The Boston Globe's Pulitzer Prize-winning stories about the priest abuse scandal in Boston. It's both riveting and depressing.

No Rubio, Rights are Man-Made

The Iowa caucus brings out the evangelical in all Republican candidates. After all, previous winners include Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, two candidates who exclusively appealed to evangelical voters (and pretty much no one else). In Iowa, the most devout and outwardly preachy Republicans get the nod. Donald Trump mistakenly thought making up bible verses and quoting "two Corinthians" at Liberty University would be a sufficient religious test for the Hawkeye State. It clearly wasn't - he came in "two."

Great Bend High School boys Feb. 3 Salina swim results

Coach Beaumont: "We finished behind a team from Newton that has been a top five team at the state meet each of the last 3-4 years. If you take out the diving points they, we were only 33 points out of first. I think that says a lot about our team this year and how far along we have come. Antoine Flipo qualified for state in the 100 breaststroke. We've never had an exchange student make a state qualifying time, so that was pretty special. I'm sure impressed with how much he has learned in just his first ...
