Written by Rep. Bob Brookens Tuesday, 15 May 2012 14:39Days 86 through 90 of the session flew by, with little good accomplished. We’re now on overload. Constitutionally, we meet for 90 days, but a resolution was passed earlier to give us through May 31. I hope we don’t take that long. The story is we could be back home Wednesday, May 16. Don’t count on it.
Well, the House and Senate have each now passed their respective budgets. The joint conference committee has been meeting, trying to hammer out the differences. They’re not done.
That’s the one thing we must pass before we adjourn.
However, the real monkeys on our backs remain the governor’s wish for a tax plan to be passed this year, and the matter of getting redistricting maps passed.

As for our health, the eyes grow dim, hair falls out and places form new places with hanging skin—where we never new there were places to begin with. Skin around the eyes begin to droop.

Then, the really bad stuff happens. Hormonal and chemical imbalances plays havoc with the body and mind. If you think raging hormones as a teen was a nightmare, imagine what it’s like when they disappear, faster than a speeding bullet.

I know, I’m still pretty young yet (although I don’t usually feel that way until I’ve had my cup or three of morning coffee). Still, there comes a time in your life when you’ve finally seen the absolute last thing you expected to see.
I was at Tractor Supply buying feed last week. I’d rather not have to go all the way to McPherson, but nobody around here sells non-medicated chick feed, and I’m all about no antibiotics in my chickens. I grabbed a Rural Messenger, since I enjoy many of the columns, as well as looking over the classifieds to see if anything we need is offered and affordable.
You all know how much I love animals. A friend once almost talked me into getting a wallaby...
Written by Bailey Kaufman Tuesday, 27 November 2012 14:40This is the fourth month I’ve written this column, and every month I contemplated writing about this crazy thing called “senior year.” And every month I managed to avoid it.
But, as I sit here in my cozy “writing corner” and listen as Michael Buble’s smooth voice calms my thoughts, I guess it may be time to finally put my senior hopes and fears on paper.
I’ll start at the beginning: freshman year. I’m not sure if this is normal, but I remember my first day of high school like it was yesterday.
My friends and I met before school and walked through the front doors of Hillsboro High School together as students there for the very first time (typical freshman move, I know).
At that time, Taylor Swift had recently released...
