County has clean air
Wasn’t that bizarre about a McPherson elementary school being ranked in the first percentile of having poor air quality? The report was conducted by USA Today and the study basically was conducted on paper by measuring the distances of possible pollutants from schools.
It’s hunting season once again and we’re glad to see the hunters arrive with all their dogs and regalia. While the railroaders kept our bed and breakfast busy in Ramona the first year we were in business, it was the hunters who were our inspiration to even try the venture. Hank’s boys came back regularly for the beginning of hunting season for lots of years and when Hank’s son, Keith, had a boy old enough to join the hunt, he came, too. They’d send us pictures in California of their Kansas hunting trophies, posing with their game bird held high. Or they’d leave trophy feathers at the Ramona House. And then life took over with it’s myriad responsibilities and the family hunters dwindled.
What a success
