Charlie's Inside Corner

Saturday Kansas State hosts Kansas in a Big 12 football game that has many asking, "Is this game a turkey no more?" Will this be more than just another Kansas State blowout in this Sunflower Classic? When was the last time anyone gave Kansas even a whisper of hope? Mark Mangino where are you?

Charlie's Inside Corner

It's not the same as Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities but it will do until something better comes along. Two Barton County cities. Two football teams. Twenty-three games. Twenty-two victories. Great Bend 10-1. Hoisington 12-0. State semifinalists both. Two cities separated by just maybe ten miles but certainly not separated by their efforts on the football field.

Charlie's Inside Corner

Winston Churchill, Brittain's cigar-smoking leader during World War II, is famous for his "Never, ever, ever, ever give up" speech to his people. The Larned Indian football team has taken that to heart and built on it as they have resurrected their 2016 football season.

NHRA Summit Series Points Race

The Sunflower Rod and Custom Association (SRCA) Drag strip welcomed back the NHRA Summit Racing Equipment Race Series to Great Bend on Saturday. The season comes down to the Sportsman Class with Brett Beck (Beloit) tied in points with Mark Walton (Hutchinson). The paradox of grass roots racing pitted Beck's '86 Mustang against Walton's '99 Miata. Although Beck was not present he did buy his tech card which awarded him 20 "show up" points. The Super Pro class was also in play with only 30 points separating dad, Mike Gordine (Salina) and his son, Scott. Dad drives a ...

Charlie's Inside Corner

Kansas football coach David Beaty is trying to put a square peg in a round hole. His "Air Raid" offense is trying to win a Big 12 football game and they simply do not have the type of talent it takes to make that offense work.

NHRA Summit series points race continues

The history of automobiles and motorcycles being used for drag racing goes back as far as the history of the automobile itself. In the 1910s the gasoline internal combustion engine achieved dominance over all things run by steam and by the 30's most of the mechanical technology had been invented. Ford introduced the flathead V8 shortly after and through the 50s it was all about speed. As the cars got faster; the drivers got braver.

Charlie's Inside Corner

No, this is not about Donald and Hillary, though some of it is just about as silly. One of my favorite cartoon characters, Popeye, summed it up pretty well when he said, "That's all I can stands. I can't stands no more!"

Charlie's Inside Corner

Most folks don't "buy" the National Football League's position that they cannot do anything about some athletes protesting everything from racism, social injustice and maybe even peppermint ice cream by refusing to stand at attention during the Star Spangled Banner. That became very obvious when the NFL refused to allow the Dallas Cowboys to wear an emblem that would honor the slain Dallas policemen. What's sauce for the goose is not sauce for the gander!

NHRA Summit Series Points Race and King of the Track

There is something harmonious about watching a racer at the top of their game, crushing the opposition. My background is in helping my husband, John Herman, bump start his motorcycle in the pits of the Pacific Northwest race tracks and sprint car racing media on a national level. Most motorsport racers are small compared to stick-and-ball sport athletes but huge on attitude. They know their capabilities and the limits of their equipment. What I have observed is a big part of a driver's success is mental. They train hard physically and practice with their equipment. They believe deep down ...
