Video Wallpaper

You don't need to check a screen to know how much time we're spending with them. Besides, surveys keep reminding us: total screen time for adult Americans is now just under 10 hours per day - roughly half in front of what we still call a "television," the rest spent with computers and mobile devices.

Just Be Glad You Don't Live in Kansas

When we last visited the sorry state of Kansas, Governor Sam Brownback - a former short-lived GOP presidential candidate - was showing us what happens when a right-wing ideologue tries to impose his utopian fantasies on the real world. Predictably, the result has been disastrous.

Get Outdoors!

One of the most satisfying things about my job as an environmental educator is the opportunity to introduce kids of all ages to new outdoor experiences – from observing animals in the wild, to learning strange and interesting facts about familiar plants or animals, to actually getting to touch a "scary" animal like one of our educational snakes, watching that moment of discovery and excitement happen is something I treasure.

Champions for Life

Donor support from the "Hometown Team" made fielding champions more than a possibility. A string of Kansas State American Legions titles and regional appearances would springboard the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps onto the national stage. Taking the field with the nation's best quickly advanced the understanding that the youth from a rural community in Central Kansas could compete with - and conquer – champions from every corner.

Wheat Market show

If you are out and about in Barton County right now, you will be able to spot combines rolling through the wheat fields. To me, it is one of the best sites of the year, and I can spend hours watching harvest. All of the hard work raising a crop is coming to the end for a while, and finally, the producer will be able to see a return on the long days he has spent to bring the crop full circle. Many people I have talked to are very pleased with how well the wheat has turned out this ...

Time for the South to Surrender

Reasonable people have suggested that removing Confederate flags from capitols, symbols from license plates, and products from Walmart shelves is mere symbolism, but it's more than that. By recognizing that flying the Confederate flag is a continuation of a treasonous act motivated by racial hatred, we can end what amounts to a 150-year-long Civil War re-enactment and move the South into what Abraham Lincoln called its "proper practical relation" to the rest of the county.
