A week ago I attended S and Y’s 35th anniversary celebration of their beginnings back in 1984. Back then, Sandy Foust, the owner, began her business on her back porch in Atlanta, Kansas. The celebration was held at their current plant in the Winfield Industrial Park. It was a fun and well at…

There are cheers and excitement when we take down the sorts of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Osama bin Laden using guns and explosives. How sad. It simply displays what has become the norm among humans. Removing bin Laden did not solve the problems in Afghanistan, and the death of al-Baghdadi doe…

I would like to assure voters that the Democratic Party is not interested in staging a Coup of the President. We believe in our Constitution and actually follow it as written. We believe in the rule of law, and seek to achieve a system that is applied equally to everyone regardless of income.

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.

Recently we took the tour given by Sandy Randel (Cherokee Strip Land Rush Museum director). The tour is an excellent way to learn about the natives who lived in the area from Arkansas City to Winfield hundreds of years ago.

I was reading with great distress that the city was already making cuts to the newly passed safety center. My one question is, why? Didn't we just vote yes on raising the sale tax to pay for this? What's up? I thought this was enough money to fund this project.

After reading the recent article entitled “Start with Breakfast,” I felt compelled to set the record straight. It stated that secret of energetic people is that they eat breakfast. I’m an energetic seventy-four year old who can work a twelve hour day digging out grass, hoeing and pulling wee…

I was a Winfield Courier paperboy in Winfield from 1958 until after I graduated high school there in 1965.  During my freshman year English class at Winfield High School, I wrote a poem and got an "A" on it.  I didn't get nearly enough of those in school so those I did get are easy to rememb…
