Earning their Philmont arrowhead patches were these Scouts: Joshua Spradlin, trek leader; Wesley Cook, Brian Craig, Brandon Newman, Michael Ornburn and Victor Tuttle. Adult advisers were Bob Anderson, Brian Culwell and Herb Tuttle. VICTOR TUTTLE, Troop 52, spent the summer as a camp counselor at Camp Naish near Bonner Springs.

KANSAS IS ALL RIGHT
August 21, 1999
To the editor: What’s the matter with Kansas? Take it as you wish, Kansas is not in it. Go east, north, south or west, and you hear them laugh at Kansas. Go into any intelligent group of people anywhere on earth, and the Kansan native is on the defensive. Newspapers and magazines are filled with cartoons, jibes, and scornful remarks about backward Kansas trying to revert to the 19th century or earlier.

AUG 21 100 YRS AGO
August 21, 1999
IN 1899 On Aug. 21, 1899, the Lawrence Journal editorialized, “No resident of Lawrence ever forgets the Twenty-first day of August. The chapter of its history that day was written in blood, and as the years go by it becomes but more deeply fixed upon the page. Never in civilized warfare was such a deed of atrocity perpetuated, and without provocation. Innocent men were murdered in cold blood, houses were pillaged and burned, stocks of goods were destroyed and the whole town left in ashes. The only excuse ever offered was that some redlegged Jayhawkers had been over into Missouri and stolen horses.” Lawrence has, we say, always remembered with sorrow the fearful day. But so far no attempt has been made to have appropriate ceremonies to commemorate it. Is it not time that the city should set apart the Twenty-first of August and celebrate it in a fitting manner?”

SIZING UP THE RACE AFTER IOWA
August 21, 1999
It was meaningful and meaningless; it buoyed a candidacy, advanced a candidacy, sank a candidacy and did not affect a candidacy. Such was the Iowa Republican Straw Poll on Aug. 14, and why it matters and does not matter for next year’s Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary. It is argued that it was important because more people turned out than ever before, and they did not turn out for money. True, their transportation, entry tickets and food were all paid by the candidates, but none of them left with more money than they had upon arrival in Ames, Iowa.
