  • Pershing County 4-H teaches situational awareness
    Picture a kid riding their bike home from school. Up ahead, they see a pothole and swerve to avoid it. “That’s good S.A.,” says Vince Boone.

    Last Friday, the Pershing County 4-H self-defense club gathered at the community center for their first meeting. About a dozen young people paid close attention to Boone, a military veteran, EMT and former nightclub bouncer. He put years of on-the-job training to use in his new role as a 4-H leader.

  • Still playing: Bills, Bucs risen from Super Bowl droughts
    In the 1990s, the Bills buffaloed their way to four successive — if not successful — Super Bowls. No other franchise has managed that.
    About a decade later, the long-downtrodden Buccaneers swashbuckled to an NFL title.
