Santa sighting

Residents in the southeast part of Great Bend reported seeing Santa Claus in town Saturday, handing out bags of candy. Taking advantage of the nice weather, George Weber put on a Santa suit and hitched his mule to a wagon. "I've been doing this for several years," he said, adding the candy was furnished by his cousins, Rick and Randy Suchy. Weber said he'd given away 100 bags of candy, including one to Darien Montes, shown here with his mom. Darien will be 3 years old on Dec. 20.

Marsh Musings

One of the most anticipated events in Kansas is the rifle season for deer. White-tailed deer across the state, and mule deer primarily in Western Kansas are harvested for excellent meat and bragging rights related to large racks. Most of us that bow hunt take a break if we haven't harvested our deer, and the game wardens are working 24/7 during this intense 10 day event. Lots of good and bad things happen and sometimes normally sane people do some unusual things in relation to deer hunting. I am stunned at some of it. One day a game ...
