That wind did arrive – in gale force -- but what no one expected was that Mother Nature would also chime in by sending her offspring Hurricane Sandy.

Volunteers beautify Brit Spaugh Zoo

Volunteers have begun clearing away overgrown greenery and redesigning the garden leading up to the lion observation area at the Great Bend Brit Spaugh Zoo.

Farming January 2015 vs. January 1914 – Part 2

Last week's column briefly discussed some of the reasons for the large changes in agriculture over the last century.
