Spring into a new book
Exclusive subscriber content
As an elementary school student, I remember learning the Spring, or Vernal, equinox fell on March 21st each year. Apparently, that’s not always the case and now there’s also meteorological Spring that begins on March 1st. And then there’s the Groundhog who supposedly predicts when Spring will arrive. Whenever it comes, Spring is a welcome season and while it hasn’t felt much like it outside the past week, the library is sporting some seasonal décor not to mention new books on the shelves so come in to get your Spring vibe. There’s nothing like a good read while you wait for a Spring-like day so you can get started on your outdoor chores. more
Bank troubles
Exclusive subscriber content
It shot out from the left side of the road and hit me before I could even hit my brakes. I was driving one night years ago on a two-lane road when a whitetail deer jumped a fence out of nowhere and hit me broadside. I almost wrecked, not because of the collision but because it scared me so much. The suddenness of it reminds me of the bank failures in the past few days. They came out of nowhere and broadsided us. more
History of Hook Lighthouse
Exclusive subscriber content
I hope everyone had a good St. Patrick’s weekend, although it was more than a little chilly. Checking the weather in Ireland where our friends live, I found their temperatures this week are just about the same as ours. I promised that this week I would follow up what I started last week with a story and information about the Historic Hook Lighthouse in Ireland. more
The case for standard time
Exclusive subscriber content
By the time this reaches the newspaper, we will have endured yet another brutal time change. I hate the time change. I hate almost all change, but let’s not digress. Many would agree with me on hating the time change and say that we should stay with daylight saving time year round. more
In defense of ‘WOKE’
Exclusive subscriber content
A cartoon appeared in your paper of a wolf chasing a child near a school. The cartoon used the word, “Woke.” The imagery suggested something sinister. more
Stop dividing us
Exclusive subscriber content
The opinion column by Betsy McCaughey in the Mar. 16 edition entitled ‘Biden’s Banking Bust,’ is yet another example of the Sun giving a megaphone to the most divisive of voices, a disturbing trend that is becoming the norm. more
The value of doubt

“I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside.” — Rumi more
Dear Editor: I have read a couple of letters written to you and published in your paper this week that allude to some level of dissatisfaction with your choices of articles appearing on the editorial page. more
Keep it up
Exclusive subscriber content
I am amused at the letters of late condemning your paper for it’s leaning to the right. They were happy when the old morning sun was directed from New York and CNN. It was so far left you had to use your left hand to turn the pages. more
'I cannot allow such TRASH to enter my home'
Exclusive subscriber content
Although I have been a subscriber of the Morning Sun for over 50 years, with the TOTAL conversion to right wing political views on the “Perspectives” page, I am cancelling my subscription effective at the end of the month. more
Request for reassurance
Exclusive subscriber content
An open letter: To the Board of Directors and other members of the group, all of whom are our Pittsburg neighbors, who stepped forward and purchased the Pittsburg Morning Sun, according to the Mar. 29, 2022 article written by former publisher Larry Hiatt. more
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
Exclusive subscriber content
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
