GUEST COLUMN, Glenn Brunkow, Pottawatomie County farmer   Kansas Farm Bureau turns 100 this year, and 100 has never looked so good. A lot has happened in the century KFB has been around. We have seen agriculture transition from horse-drawn equipment to modern tractors and combines that...

GUEST COLUMN, Larry Phillips, Kismet   As I turned on the news Thursday morning, the headlines on every channel was “Beto” O’Rourke announced his intent to run for the Democrat Socialist nomination for President. I went to the Vanity Fair site where his announcement was published, and its...

MY PERSPECTIVE, Gary Damron   When our children were young, my wife read them a book, “Sons of Africa,” full of stories about a young boy growing up in Swaziland. Elmer Schmelzenbach’s parents were pioneer missionaries, and eventually the children had to leave for school in the U.S. to...

A SECOND OPINION, Michael Austin, Kansas Policy Institute   Simply removing the Governor’s proposal won’t solve the state budget. Policymakers must find a way to reduce spending by roughly $518 million over four years. We’ve written previously on the Kansas budget debate with a clear-eyed...

Dr. Ken Trzaska, SCCC President   The new year has propelled Seward County Community College forward at a hectic pace, with plenty to celebrate — new buildings, new opportunities for success … and new challenges. Our college board and executive team members have spent considerable time in...

L&T Publisher Earl Watt   Back in 2000, when George W. Bush was running against Al Gore for the presidency, many conservatives believed it was time to get rid of the Electoral College because the predicted outcome was that Bush was going to win the popular vote but lose in the...

GUEST COLUMN, Star Parker   Democrats want an expansive, powerful government in a godless nation, and somehow they think that would make us better. President Donald Trump's two-hour speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference was filled with zingers that seem reasonably...

L&T Publisher Earl Watt   When the Lady Redskins ended their season with a loss at the Class 6A Girls Basketball State Tournament, the swell of emotions overtook many of the players and fans. My emotional moment came before the game ever started. It’s not an official competition, but...

GUEST COLUMN, Dr. Richard Holm, Prairie Doc   My good friend, a single man in his 60s, didn’t like going to the medical clinic for anything, let alone a cold. His illness started with a fever, aches all over and a sudden overabundance of mucus. After one or two days of those obvious viral...
