In the spring and summer of 1867, angst and tension were riding high on the Kansas plains. Amid all of that were rumors Indian tribes on the Kansas prairie would rise up in violence. Winfield Scott Hancock, war hero from Gettysburg, who had been assigned to command the military Department of the Missouri, which included the states of Missouri and Kansas and the territories of Colorado and New Mexico. And, where on the Kansas prairie there had been peace, he made war. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of Hancock’s War against the Indians, when George Armstrong Custer came to Kansas and burned down an Indian village in Ness County where Black Kettle and his family had gone to heal after the...

Manahoac Lake Motel Everytime I turn into Washington off U. S. 211, my eyes catch the old motel on the left side of the road, just sitting there with no life whatsoever. In my mind, I can hear it saying SAVE ME. I can remember when it was called the Manahoac Lake Motel, named for the Indian tribe thought by some to have camped on the site, with its small lake (most of which was filled when the two-lane U. S. 211... I had heard through the grapevine that George Davis Jr. was the one to have built the motel. In 1979, Paul and Joan St. Clair bought the property and had it converted it into the Black Kettle Motel and Restaurant.

There is no indication that the U.S.ballot boxes were tampered with, nor that the computers which tallied the votes were infringed upon… so what is she alluding to? Perhaps she is aware of some advertising taken out on social media or elsewhere? After she so conveniently...
What a shame for champions of statesmanship in our politics: A longtime political operative obviously conflicted on matters of race and religion in America is headed to the Colorado legislature. We shake our heads missed opportunity to find a good conservative more in line with Colorado views than newly appointed Rep. Judy Reyher.Reyher, the former chair of the Otero County Republican Party, tried this week to defend appalling comments she made in the past on social media. But in doing so,...
Horse meat consumed as beef. Subcompact cars, marketed as runabouts for coeds, whose gas tanks exploded like Roman candles in rear-end collisions. And a cocky company that caused one of history’s worst oil spills.Scanning headlines in the West, you might think these were stories about Nissan Motor, Kobe Steel, Takata Corp. or Chinese food companies. Instead, they’re just some of the more infamous quality control and safety lapses from American and European industry.The subcompact was the Ford...
For families in need, the Salvation Army's red kettles are as big a part of the holidays as lights, Santa Claus and spending time with loved ones.But with only a few days left to ring the bells outside local malls and grocery stores, the kettles this year aren't collecting what the Salvation Army needs to assist the number of people who need help.Part of the problem is a time crunch.
