Approximately 300 acres of Butler County Flint Hills pasture is set to go on the auction block April 7. The land is currently owned by the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland.
Even the government is claiming back lands in the Flint Hills. There’s a place northwest of me they’ve claimed and are letting grow back. Another up in a more removed county. The Boy Scouts got rid of some land out there in Butler a few years ago.
I’ve wondered if merit badges have changed from out door activities to computer games and texting speed.
Watched the debate last night.
I reminded, watching Rubio and Cruz, of the small yapping white dogs that patrol the drag here in the village. Yap, yap. At cars, truck and walking people. I had one following me to the Co-Op while I was on the tractor one day. It yapped all the way.
I did give some thought to running over it. The deputies don’t care for the things either. I put that down to the deputies walking the shadows and not wanting to be seen more than anything, although during a car chase one of the small white yappers got into the road between the perp and the deputy and about cause a loss of control.
Very hostile cop was about the area the next day. Of course, the yapper belonged to a friend of the dude the cop was chasing, so there were more grins than chagrin round about that afternoon when the cop failed to find the yapper.
Another friend two blocks over and one up kept the dog for a couple of days until the cops relaxed.
