GUEST COLUMN, Larry Phillips, Kismet   The major media proves daily it has become, without doubt, “the enemy within.”  It’s unbridled hatred of President Trump is devolving into something akin to total mass insanity. They are now flaunting their titles as traitors, wearing it like a...

GUEST COLUMN, Walter V. Wendell, President of West Texas A&M University   On the very best days, the very best universities treat each student distinctively. Universities are in the business of creating, developing and nurturing human capital. This is true when faculty and staff are...

MY PERSPECTIVE, Gary Damron   Today we’ll look at a familiar story from Luke chapter 15 – which reminds me of something from my boyhood. My parents owned an old sow which had a litter of piglets. Somehow, I discovered that they liked acorns, so I spent quite a bit of time filling a coffee...

A SECOND OPINION, The Wichita Eagle   We were disappointed this week at the political strong-arm tactics and lack of leadership shown by high-ranking members of the state Senate, namely Majority Leader Jim Denning and President Susan Wagle. Denning and Wagle temporarily stopped progress...

A SECOND OPINION, The Dallas Morning News   Give Donald Trump this, he never fails to find a little gasoline to toss on a smoldering flame. We speak, of course, of the president of the United States’ decision on Easter Sunday to enflame the immigration debate by taking shots at Mexico,...

L&T Publisher Earl Watt   A recent editorial by NJ.com, a New Jersey news outlet, couldn’t have highlighted the bias against the Midwest any better. While a trial in Wichita has reached the midpoint on whether or not three Southwest Kansas men conspired to blow up an apartment complex...
