2015 marks the 145th anniversary of the incorporation of Wichita and the 160th anniversary of abolitionist John Brown moving to Kansas. It is the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Little Arkansas River Peace Treaty.

All of which, and more, is history. That pretty well tells one that even though the day is relative mild, it still isn’t spring, going on summer, and the work shop is not heated so I read history (and pretty much else I care to) waiting all those promising days.

The ex-deputy has filed an appeal.

A couple of the other local shadow walkers have been mentioned as entered into the system  through hearings. Trial dates are hard to come by. Several have been placed into diversion programs, mostly juvies. And divorces are picking up steam.

That divorce thing is relative new as far as numbers go, it appears. Not sure if they are long term residents, recent imports or the money (read jobs) situation is bringing them on.

I was surprised at the number of positions were advertised in the local paper for a couple of areas, so things must be improving. One of the wrinkles for the advertisers seems to be advertising the number of hours one will be expected to work.

Although, I suppose, the words “benefits” and “full time” don’t mean the same things now as they use to.

Mail check coming up. Y’all be good.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
