    Crystal Meth

    11 years ago

    Drugs and the problems they cause to our society are everywhere. We can avoid them, refuse to take part in their use, and report drug activity to the authorities. And still, it can occasionally find a way to insert itself into your life. One way or another you may be forced to deal with it.

    Daming Xu left for a hike in the forest one day and never returned. Searchers launched a large effort involving horses, people and helicopters but to no avail. His car was found, and witnesses met and spoke with him, and maddening clues were located, but he remains gone.

    We are always comparing ourselves to other people. We like to know, are they more successful or how is their family functioning compared to ours. When life's circumstances bring about a separation between people early, a reacquaintance later in life brings these questions back in a sometimes...

    Ten Years After

    12 years ago

    The WTC attacks were of the type of incident that places an indelible stamp in our memories and most if not all of us (age permitting) can remember what we were doing as it happened. We might be surprised as well at how close to home it struck.

    Joyland; Wichita's Lost Legacy

    3 years ago

    Generations of people found fun and enjoyment at a small theme park in the mid-west. But changing moods and preferences have relegated this local icon to the dust bins of nostalgia. And if any hope remained, the sour economy dashed it as well.

    Dennis Rader, BTK...Wichita's Serial Killer

    6 years ago

    For over thirty years, Wichita, Kansas police looked for a serial killer who preyed on the people who lived there. After far to many deaths, and too many unsolved cases, the killer was caught. The facts illustrate how this story could happen in any town in America.

    Today is August 4, 2010. I woke up this morning and recalled, it was two years ago today that I was laid off as my employer began to ramp down for closure. I worked in a semi-conducter plant, or fab, as they are commonly known inside the industry....

    Black Friday. Getting Blacker?

    12 years ago

    The day after Thanksgiving seems so important to retail stores that it looked forward to and possibly planned for all year. But does getting up and hitting the stores at 4 or 5 am really appeal to American as a whole? For myself, it is a resounding no.

    Today we take them for granted, but during Ike's administration they were few and far between. This is a true story of an idea well ahead of its time.

    The Positives of Capitalism

    It's a part of human nature from the time we are infants, and the only fair form of economy and government in the world. Maybe it's not perfect, but it holds more hope than the alternatives. A lot of people are praising Socialism these days, but what would it cost us?
