By Jeremy Gulley I have tried hard over the years to try and get my youngest son to watch sports. I have not pushed him to play sports or like sports, but I have tried to get him to appreciate sports. Mostly, he isn’t interested. He is the kid with the big imagination that doesn’t [...]

By Jeremy Gulley When I say I feel like I’m getting old, I know many people, those older than me for example, will laugh and say I have no idea what I’m talking about. But I do know what I’m talking about. I feel like I’m getting old. My hair is going away, many of [...]

My Political Opinions

One day four men were arguing about politics. Every time that a topic would be brought up, it eventually ended up where three would agree and argue against the fourth. Try as he could, the forth man could never prevail against the “three against one, we’re right” argument. After they had argued for several minutes [...]

Why Osawatomie? This Is Where It Started!

Where Osawatomie High School stands, John Brown Memorial Park spreads out around the John Brown Cabin and Museum Historical Site, and a battle once raged between Free Staters and Pro Slavers on Aug. 30, 1856, history has come full circle.
