Medicine Lodge, Kansas's Locally Owned And Operated Newspaper

Opinion / Religion - November 12, 2018

To Kevin and the Premiere Staff:

Coming back to my hometown of Medicine Lodge for the Peace Treaty has always brought back fond memories past and present. Being a history buff, I saw a stack of newspapers on Main Street and for a dollar I had history in my hands, "The Gyp Hill Premiere 2018 Peace Treaty" edition.

When arriving back in Norton, Kansas I settled in my favorite chair to read the special edition. My evenings were spent in complete enjoyment (took a week) as I relived the history of Medicine Lodge and the signing of the Peace Treaty.

I want to say thank you to Kevin and his staff for the time, effort, and research that went into preparing all the articles that brought history back to life.

I agree with "Sticky" Beginnings on page 16 when the rough weather-beaten cowboy ambled into the Cresset and expressed his view and also my same sentiments for the Gyp Hill Premiere 2018 Peace Treaty edition. "Damned fitten’ name I would say. This here is a hell of a paper, isn’t it?"

Thanks again for a job well done.
