I traveled to the Flint Hills of Kansas. It's a place with gorgeous sunrises and prairie lands. It's also home to many cattle ranching families. Meet the folks who work to keep our nation fed, and say they aim to do it sustainably. @Newsy

It's very disappointing to see @HighPlainsJrnl print the latest piece from Trent Loos where he perpetuates misinformation about COVID and medical treatments. Labeling it as "Opinion of the author" doesn't help. Your Editor still chose to print this disinformation.
