  • Radio and Model Rails

    I’m currently working on updating the History of KLWN and KLZR to reflect recent changes, as well as the addition of KKYD into the mix. As for the new locomotives, I found some track defects, but also the presence of a bad wheelset in one of the engines. Once both problems were addressed, the engines […]

  • Crazy weather

    On New Year’s eve, it was sunny and hospitiable enough that I took a roadtrip to the BETO Junction/Emporia area. Last Night, we get hit with an ice storm, which also caused power to go out on us for 12 hours (and we’re lucky it only took 12 hours, some houses in southern Kansas are […]

  • Radio changes

    Quite a few changes have been happening at local AM radio station KLWN. Yesterday, they unleashed their new news-talk lineup.

K-State is favored by only four points. Oklahoma and Texas will face in the Red River Shootout off at the Cotton Bowl […]

  • More on the football fiasco

    The fisco regarding the White City-St. Marys academy football game, where St. Marys refused to play with a female player suited up, has apparantly made the news wires, as well as managing to get my mug in the local Rag. (Story and Afformentioned ugly mug from the Journal-World) In addition, the Kansas State High School […]

  • Girls can’t play football?

    A story out of Channel 13 in Topeka deals with the 8-man… excuse me, 8-player football team of White City High School. Their opponent this week, St. Marys Academy, refused to play a team with a female player. As of now, their planned Friday night showdown has been cancelled. Personally, I don’t see a problem […]

  • Begin blogging

    This is the obligatory first post in my new blog. I’ll probably post random thoughts, but tonight my mind is drawing blanks….
