Thinking about his night moves, singer/songwriter/rocker Bob Seger started humming a song from 1962.
Believe it or not, our little corner of the universe has much in common with Tampa Bay, Fla.
HOLLYWOOD – God bless America, and how's everybody? The Ponderosa Fire raged out of control in Northern California Tuesday, threatening forests for hundreds of square miles. It could have been worse. If gasoline were made from marijuana instead of corn we'd all have to bicycle till the forest could be replenished. The USA Pro Cycling Challenge race will be held in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Utah. It's a brutal challenge for bicyclists. Last ...
I had the opportunity Tuesday afternoon to tape a to-be-televised debate between the two 112th District Kansas House candidates. For those of you living under a political rock, this includes Republican John Edmonds and Democrat Steve Muehleisen, both from Great Bend.
HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody? Mitt Romney vowed to end the outsourcing of U.S. jobs overseas Sunday. The practice often backfires. One U.S. city outsourced its suicide hotline to a call-center in Pakistan, and if you call and tell them you are suicidal, they ask you if you know how to drive a truck. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was downsized by NBC Friday and dozens of staffers were fired to ...
Pulling into town soon-maybe where you live-will be the UndocuBus, the so called "Ride for Justice." In a shameless exhibition of United States immigration law flouting, the bus has emblazoned on its side "Sin papels, sin miedo" ("without papers, without fear").
What do you want the future to look like, more importantly what do you want it to feel like?
Go anywhere and strike up a conversation. "How's it going?" "Just trying to stay cool." "Yeah, I'm sick and tired of the @#$%*&! heat." Yes, tempers are as combustible as a field of wheat stubble. The scalding, skin-bubbling, blast furnace heat is the topic that breaks the ice, err, actually melts it and vaporizes it in a puff of steam. Sure, we've been teased with a few drops of rain and my front yard is ...
HOLLYWOOD – God bless America, and how's everybody? The London Olympics opener starred Paul McCartney, Captain Hook, James Bond and the Queen of England. What a show. James Bond was there to protect the Queen and Captain Hook was there to get Paul McCartney off the stage so the games could get underway. South Korean archer Dong Hyun set an Olympic archery record for the most number of bulls-eyes in Friday's qualifying round even though ...
Flowers. Have you ever really looked at flowers? How about kittens, have you ever really looked at kittens? How about dogs, you know, cute, cuddly puppies? Windmills? Barns? Horses? Sunsets? Little kids? Brothers,? Sisters? BFFs? The Royal Gorge? Grand Canyon? The St. Louis Arch? If you've ever judged 4-H and/or open class photography at a county fair, you have – over and over again. As the Barton County Fair gets rolling this weekend, it signals ...
Former President George Bush signed, in 2007, the federal Energy Independence and Security Act that set new energy efficiency standards, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. One provision was phasing out the traditional incandescent light bulb, invented in the early 1800s.
BEVERLY HILLS – God bless America, and how's everybody? The Los Angeles Lakers surprised the basketball world Wednesday by signing future Hall of Fame guard Steve Nash. He enjoyed the standard L.A. welcome ceremony. After passing the team physical he was given his jersey, his locker, and his choice of Kardashians. San Diego's July Fourth fireworks show lasted 15 seconds when the fireworks all went off at the same time. We should never put the ...
America is a nation in crisis. Faith in our economic and political institutions, from Wall Street to Congress, is at or near historic lows.
I grew up in Salida, Colo surrounded by majestic mountains, located only 20 miles from Monarch Ski Area on the Arkansas River with three hot springs swimming pools within a 15 mile radius. It had a bowling alley, movie theater, and stunningly beautiful golf course. We also had an ice skating rink open about three weeks per year.
"I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you," declared Nietzsche.
In 2006 I came up against a holiday deadline crunch, so I turned my column over to Turpy, the beloved eight-year-old Golden Retriever/Chow mix who had turned up at our doorstep as a puppy.
Come on, Oprah.
We humans like to divide time into neat little boxes based on dates, but the case can be made that the styles, policies, manners and mores of one ten-year period usually spill over into the next.
Whew! I need to catch my breath. I can't keep up with the quickly shifting journalistic conventional wisdom.
