We’ve all been there. Every family has at least one child who is a total delight. They are always cheerful and go out of their way to be helpful. They keep their room clean, make good grades in school, and are considerate, respectful and polite. They do their chores without complaining and n…

Depending on the polls you read and how you read them, nearly half of those surveyed want the House impeachment inquiry of President Trump to continue. That is not the same as wanting him impeached, much less convicted by the Senate and removed from office, but it represents a momentum the p…

When fall arrives in Cowley County, there is no shortage of fun things to do. After the bluegrass festival in Winfield, get ready for the  Last Run Car Show, Art in the Park, Arkalalah, and then it’s time for Halloween.

A new program is working to prevent children from ending up in foster care. A collection of grants totaling $13 million were awarded to 18 nonprofit organizations around the state last week. The grants are a part of the Family First initiative, designed to help children at risk of entering s…

If the writer from Wichita thinks Trump’s election is God’s will, he has been duped and conned by the greatest con artist in the world. My faith doesn’t teach me to lie, demean people, and cheat people as Trump has done all his life in his quest for wealth.

The Walnut Valley Festival is nothing short of amazing. While bluegrass is not my favorite genre of music, I can’t help being mesmerized by the skill of the musicians.

We give and take advice on a daily basis. Yet seldom do you give advice to someone 200 years in advance. But when James Burns in Ireland wrote to his son James in America in 1796, I felt he was speaking to me today.

Pine trees have always fascinated me. In northern Indiana, where I was raised, it seemed there were a lot of different kinds. I thought maybe they felt the winters were so long and cold that they’d better keep their “coats” on all season long. Maybe deciduous trees were confident about sprin…
