Dear Editor, As lifetime residents of Great Bend, my husband and I have been huge supporters of Barton Community College and Cougar athletics. All three of our children have attended Barton and our two sons were both student athletes. We have been to countless basketball games, baseball games and volleyball games and always looked forward to watching Debbie Warren's cheer and dance teams perform! We never could believe our eyes when we watched them and ...

Dear Editor, I was driving home from my parent's house on Christmas Eve where our family gathered to celebrate Christmas. While driving I heard a Christmas song on the radio. I believe, in this one Christmas song, I have found the perfect portrayal of the confusion that I see in our world today. People are void of a solid foundation from which to build their life experience. Without a foundation we are all seeking and ...

Clearly, it MUST have been a video produced by America's enemies, a vicious piece of propaganda that was so outlandish it would have brought laughs 10 years ago. No one except indoctrinated citizens of communist countries would ever believe it.
Winter is officially here! The weather has cooled down, and some of the best little hunters have appeared on the scene. The short-eared owls are here!

CLAY CENTER – One of my highlights each Christmas is putting up the tree and trimming it out with lights and decorations. We start at the bottom and wind our way upwards finishing it off with the angel at the top. Then the drum rolls for the big test – plugging it in. When it all works and the tree lights up, it is a beautiful sight. Often I will sit in the living room with just the tree lights on gazing at their beauty.
Christmas will be a little merrier for children who might not otherwise have a package to open this year, thanks to a local non-profit agency and a Great Bend business.
