FOOTBALL: Chargers break 4-0 against Bulldogs

CARBONDALE—The Santa Fe Trail Chargers just wrapped up September with a 4-0 record. The Chargers not only recorded their first four-win season since 2002, but they’ve done it in style, outscoring opponents 205-25, averaging just shy of 500 offensive yards per game.

And they just keep getting better.

In front of a homecoming crowd Friday night, the Chargers steam rolled Anderson County 61-6, recording a veritable shutout by the varsity as they blanked the Bulldogs 47-0 in the first half.

LETTER: Set your sights on kindness

Dear Editor:

October is Bullying Prevention Month. In the 2014 Kansas Communities That Care Survey, more than 13,000 Kansas students stated they were bullied between one and two times per week, and approximately 2,500 students disclosed being bullied each day. Nationwide, around 160,000 U.S. children stay home from school each day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students (National Education Association).

EDITORIAL: Beer festival a smashed success

I’ll admit it. I was a little more than excited to attend an event named after one of my favorite intellectual and scholarly films, “Beerfest.” Finding out that Osage City was having their own festival of such made me want to find my favorite beer, freeze it into ice blocks in the winter, skate on it and melt it in the spring time.

While this was by no means a competition, I couldn’t help but be curious as to how many I could get through sampling out of approximately 75 beers.
