Shame on you
Exclusive subscriber content
We moved here from Sun City, AZ. My wife's family have lived in this area for well over 150 years. She has a subscription to your paper primarily to get local news and community events, etc. more
To the Morning Sun Editor, I am writing to echo the views expressed by Dick Thompson is his letter published Saturday, March 11. The improvements made in the Morning Sun after Larry Hiatt became publisher are greatly appreciated. The recent changes in the Perspectives editorial page are not. more
As spring returns to SE Kansas, this excerpt from “Frogdancer,” Arma native Frank Jeler Jr.’s memoir, brings warm memories of seining for bait and fishing strip pits, ponds, and rivers with dad and grandpa. — J.T.K more
Doesn’t seem like good business to me

Dear Editor, Your new editorial policy is just awful! It has gone from bad to worse. It insults every open-minded person in the area! more
Stock Landing
Exclusive subscriber content
My daughter is flying to Israel today. This is our college freshman's first big trip without her mom or me. So I guess airplane landings are on my mind and in my prayers today. The analogy of a soft or hard economic landing seems to be what all the talking heads on cable TV want to discuss. But the economy will land this year, and here is the type of landing I see ahead. more
It’s not the size of the carrot
Exclusive subscriber content
Once upon a time, an aggressive salesperson came to me wanting more incentive to sell. She was one of our company's top sellers, and she'd done a little back-of-the-napkin math that suggested she wasn't going to earn much more, regardless of what she sold. more
Reading of the Green
Exclusive subscriber content
It’s that time of year when everyone’s Irish, if not genetically than certainly in spirit. Since the Emerald Isle has a rich literary history — think James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, Seamus Heaney — there’s no scarcity of Irish reading material to be found. If you’re like me, you may look for less lofty reading; not to worry since there are plenty of mainstream books written about Ireland and its inhabitants. more
Behind the mask

Everybody is broken. Everybody. That is what I’ve learned. more
Are we losing our civil sense of fairness?
Exclusive subscriber content
I, like others, had the impression that there would be more balance and less tilt on the PERSPECTIVES page of The Morning Sun. more
St. Patrick’s Day
Exclusive subscriber content
St. Patrick’s Day is a special day for the Irish and so many others. Once treated like the scum of the earth when the Irish immigrants arrived on American shores, they withstood the poor jobs, housing and much more and every year celebrated their Irish heritage being the strong, determined people that they were. more
Defining 'friendship' not so simple
Exclusive subscriber content
Friendship is a funny word. Put 20 people in a room and ask them to define it, and you'll get 20 answers. And they'll all be right, or right enough. Because most folks won't define the word "dictionary" style, but rather by how they feel about their closest besties. more
The Friday Study Club asked me to present a program a week ago Friday at their monthly country club meeting. As they were celebrating an early St. Patrick’s Day, they requested that I come up with something Irish. more
90 years experience of climate change
Exclusive subscriber content
I was born in 1932 at Stockton, Kansas and my first grade was in a one-room schoolhouse during the 1936 dust bowl. We had to have lanterns on in the middle of the day, it was so dark from dust storms. The tumble weeds blew up against the fences and the dirt covered them half as high as the fence post. My father had three heat strokes that year trying to get enough hay for our dairy herd. more
Here’s a recollection by 1964 PHS graduate Nancy Keller Kincaid that, for me, brought both joy and heartbreak. Experiencing Pittsburg, on both the whole length of Broadway and the downtown side streets, was really something back before the mall, big box stores and Amazon arrived. more
The rainbow’s end
Exclusive subscriber content
Irish legend has it that there’s a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow. If that’s so, then I would expect to find a rainbow ending at 308 N. Walnut every day — because there’s no greater treasure than a library full of books. Here are some of the latest pieces of gold we recently added to the collection. more
Steady drip
Exclusive subscriber content
A steady water drip can drill a hole through a rock over time. There is power in a steady drip. This timeless truth was written about as far back as the fifth century when classical writer, Choerilus of Samos, wrote, 'with persistence a drop of water hollows out the stone.' There is a great investment strategy in this thought, as well. It's the consistent investing of the same dollar amount on the same day each month or quarter automatically in what is called dollar-cost averaging. more
Isn’t she lovely
Exclusive subscriber content
I listen to the radio while I work in my shop. Actually, it’s not strictly the radio: It is a radio station on my Alexa. In any case, it’s a classic rock station. This is stuff I listened to in my twenties. more
School basketball games: Then and now
Exclusive subscriber content
For the past several weeks I have been listening to high school and college basketball results and have even attended a few games on each level. As I watch the athletes, cheerleaders and the crowd at high school and college games, I think about how things have changed over the years. more
Pittsburg's 'sticky' vision
Exclusive subscriber content
On Thursday, we reported that nearly 100 city residents recently came together to participate in a planning session for Spruce Up Pittsburg. The event exemplifies what makes Pittsburg, well, Pittsburg. It was the kind of front-page news that we were excited to share. more
I was all smiles reading Phil Burgert’s “From Our History” column in which he reported that, 50 years ago last fall, Beat poet, Allen Ginsberg, and his professor poet father, Louis, came to Pittsburg to read poetry in KSC’s Carney Hall. more
