In all, 1,924 respondents — both users and...

Education Business

Todd Evans Last year a patron asked me the question, “Can a school district really be run like a business?” My immediate response was, “Yes.” I have reflected on that conversation many times over the past year and sometimes think I was a little quick with my response. There are many similarities between a school district and a business, but there many differences as well. By comparing the two, I think we can better discover that we have much in common and that our interests... Read More

Wild Times: Life changes in the blink of an eye

Kimber

I first saw her in March of 2007. It was love at first sight! I was hunting on Will Cokeley’s game farm down by Mayetta with my good friends Dick Hughes and Paul Grote. Dick had his two dogs with him, Paul had his two Yellow Labs with him, and I had my Yellow Lab, Jack. We were hunting chukars. During the course of the afternoon, an employee of Cokeley’s came out to bring us more birds. When he arrived, he not only planted the birds for us, but he unloaded his German Shorthaired... Read More

Do you hear what I hear?

Maybe you’ve had that moment. You know the one. When you, as a parent, finally make a mental connection with the words you’re singing. And, in that moment, you stop. You stop and think, or say aloud to your coworker Krista (maybe that’s just me?), “Wait a second… what?” I had one of those moments a few weeks ago. “Baby, I’m preying on you tonight. Hunt you down eat you alive. Just like animals. Maybe you think that you can hide. I can smell your scent for miles.... Read More

Lights out…again!

When the power went out in Sabetha for an hour Thursday, Nov. 20, I was working on the computer in The Sabetha Herald office. It never fails – almost every time the power goes out or flickers, I am in the middle of doing something that requires power. Some of you were in the middle […]
