I continue to be amazed at the excellence woven into the fabric of our schools. As my contact with our school system here in Hoisington expands, I have been able to see some of the thoughts, plans and processes of education in action.

Excellence is a common pursuit of the people we trust with the management of our children for a large ...

Last week's tragic shootings in Canada and Washington state are certain to lead to new calls for gun control. The media-generated fear over "lone wolf terrorists" will enable the gun control lobby to smear Second Amendment supporters as "pro-terrorist." Marketing gun control as an anti-terrorist measure will also enable gun control supporters to ally with those who support any infringement on liberty done in the name of "homeland security."

I would bet that I am not the only one who enjoyed one or two of these recent special nights in the marsh. It was 7:30 and the moon was a replica of the harvest moon at Halloween. It was huge, yellow, and about 30 degrees above the horizon. You could almost reach out and touch it. The temperature was about 12 degrees, but it wasn't the bone-chilling cold of a deer stand. THAT cold starts in your fingers and toes, and works its way up between your shoulder blades to a spot between your heart and your ...

The last two weeks have certainly presented people, livestock and the 2015 wheat crop with challenges. Many record lows were set over the area over the last two weeks and to add insult to injury, many record low highs were set.

The question on many wheat farmers' minds is what did this severe and long early cold snap do to the 2015 wheat crop? Much of the answer involves conditions other than temperature and the development of the wheat.

Illegal immigrants are the perfect Republican foe. They're easily exploited as low-cost workers benefiting business and easily maligned for being "lawless" benefiting politicians. They're a foreign other with a tendency not to speak English so suspicion is ready-made. Plus, how are illegal immigrants going to stick up for themselves? They're not. They're an ideal rival!
