2016 has come and gone and like all years there were some very positive things that happened and some really negative things.   Personally, it was a tough year because of the death of my younger sister back in February.  Lisa was my only sibling and as hard as it was for me I know it was so much harder on my Mom.  Children are supposed to bury parents and it is really difficult when that ...

‘Tis The Season

KSAL StaffDecember 12, 2016

Christmas time is wonderful.  The spirit, the giving, the merriment and cheer. All that's fine but I'm in it for the movies. From the old stuff, Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life. The classics, A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation. The new stuff, Elf and Bad Santa.  I love it all and I'll watch em all. Which one is your favorite? ...

Pat’s Chats: Dumbest Rules In Sports

KSAL StaffDecember 6, 2016

REJOICE! No, not because it's holiday season, but because Major League Baseball just made the best possible decision for its product. The All-Star Game no longer determines home field advantage for the World Series. That rule has always been the dumbest in my mind. And don't even try to convince me by saying the players are truly giving their all in the game. The rule penalized the team with the...

The Gift That Says “I’ve Checked You Off the List”

KSAL StaffDecember 5, 2016

My mother was the best at buying gifts. One trick was continual gift shopping. She didn't start hours or days before the event, she was always on the lookout for something unique every day of the year, and especially when she was travelling.  It's easy to find unique in Lisbon or London, not so easy when you're shopping the big box two days before Christmas. One end cap gift display looks a lot l...

Jingle All the Way

KSAL StaffDecember 4, 2016

One of my favorite movies of all times just happens to be a Christmas movie called “It’s A Wonderful Life”, starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed.  I’m pretty sure that everyone has seen it at least one time in their lives.  When I first watched it, I had to be in the first or second grade and, although the subject matter was a little above my comprehension, I connected with the premise ...

Saline County Jail

County Disrespects Sheriff on Jail Funding

KSAL StaffNovember 30, 2016

Last week, Saline County Commissioner Dave Smith said there is little the Commission can do to reduce the jail population.  Perhaps. Citizen Norman Mannel said issues with jail overpopulation will continue until the core issues are identified.  I see the core issue as having to do with respect. Those who criminally violate the law don’t respect the lives and property of others; they may disr...

When You’re a Pro, You Play to Win

KSAL StaffNovember 29, 2016

How about them Chiefs?!?! Did you see that game with Denver this past Sunday?  If not, you missed a classic.  I’m not a huge NFL fan, but that game was outstanding with Kansas City pulling out an amazing 30-27 win in overtime. Following the game Denver Head Coach Gary Kubiak took some heat for a decision he made late in overtime.  And what was Kubiak’s “sin”?  He played to win. The ...
