Jimmy Lydon Remembers “Life with Father”

It wouldn't be Father's Day without Turner Classic Movies' annual parade of patriarch-themed classic films. One of the most popular is 1947's "Life with Father," based on a book of humorous stories written by Clarence Day, Jr., a decade before the film.

Check It Out!

I truly believed that when school was out, things would slow down in the library. Silly me! I am very thankful for Julie and Michele and all of their time and talents that they contribute each day, as well as, Barbara Clawson and Amy Hammeke for helping us out this summer in the evenings!

Charlie's Inside Corner: When Baseball was King

In the 1940's and 1950's baseball was King in the United States. The NFL had yet to reach the fan base it has today and professional basketball was a curiosity that was dominated by a few eastern cities. Baseball was the attention-getter for those interested in sports and it wasn't just professional baseball because amateur baseball was played in most every city and country town. It was especially true in central and western Kansas.

Land is sacred

Almost every farmer has said in one way or another, "My life begins with the land." Look at it any way you want but this bedrock principle remains as it has for generations. Land ownership is the key to farming and ranching. Farmers are proud of the crops they grow and the land they work.

Champions in Training

By the late 1950s, many veterans of the Argonne Rebels Drum and Bugle Corps were "aging out," and a paradox ensued. While an all-time number of pre-teems were applying for membership, an all-time low were correctly trained musicians. To address the dilemma while reducing the strain placed on a volunteer staff, the Rebel-Heirs feeder corps was organized.

Barton County Fair

Next week marks the beginning of my 26th year as your Barton County Family and Consumer Science Agent. The old adage "Time flies when you are having fun" is definitely true. It does not seem like a year has passed since I was ordering bread for the 4-H barbecue or lining up roasters for preparing the baked beans. Hopefully you have connected with a 4-H member to purchase your barbecue ticket. Prices do increase after July 1st.

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 ...

California’s Water Woes Hit Home

Pundits sizing up the drought have said that water is the new oil. They're wrong, of course. Oil supplies merely send nations to war, while the water shortage pits neighbors against each other.

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.
