    Andy and Renie Bowman|Jan 29, 2023

    Years ago, as elementary students at a tiny country school, our bus driver took us to school in his huge station wagon. That meant we kids got to talk with him for an entire hour – both ways. Good-natured and chatty, he would entertain us as he drove. True stories, gigantic whoppers, or funny gossip, it was all fair game to that man. One such story went much like this. “I’ve always obeyed the laws. Even as a teenager. I remember driving along one day, and a policeman pulled me over. I asked him...

    Next week is the filing period, Feb. 6-8, for the mayor city treasurer, city marshal, and four council seats in Alva. At least one person has announced his intention to run for mayor. Great! I hope every position has at least one or two people besides the incumbents file. Not because they are not doing a good job, but to show them others care about what's going on. I'm too old to run for anything but City Marshal. If you want to have a good time running, but don't want much to do if you win, by...

    SAMYA KULLAB|Jan 29, 2023

    KALYNIVSKE, Ukraine (AP) — When night falls in Tatiana Trofimenko's village in southern Ukraine, she pours sunflower oil that aid groups gave her into a jar and seals it with a wick-fitted lid.

It has been over 11 weeks since Ukrainian forces wrested back her village in Kherson province from Russian occupation. But liberation has not diminished the hardship for residents of Kalynivske, both those returning home and the ones who never left. In t...
