Posted date: Mar 14, 2017

On February 20th, 2016, Robert Martinez and Kelsey Dunn re-opened one of St. Francis' favorite places to eat, bowl, and hang-out. And since the re-opening, there have been continuous changes and renovations in an effort to create the funnest, yummiest, bowliest, ice creamiest, happiest place to be in St. Francis.

The menu at opening was limited, but has since expanded, and will continue to expand. Having added a bunch of ice cream related items: sundaes, shakes, and the newly renovated middle dinning room has become an Ice Cream Parlor to better enjoy your treats. The fryers were also brought back online, expanding the menu with all things deep-fried. And more recently, the inclusion of specials, home-made items like chicken fried steak, green chili, salsa, and wings. With more special items planned for the future (fried chicken, home-made sides, more specialty sandwiches). The ever evolving menu means that anyone can find a favorite dish, and there are always new things to try.

Cheyenne Bowl has also become the place to play. Events like live bands (, bowling, and holiday and office parties. Coming up are several After-Prom Socials, spring and summer bowling leagues, and this weekend is a special St. Patrick's Day party on the 18th @ 8pm; it is 21 and up with a $20 cover that includes green beer!

There is a lot exciting things happening at Cheyenne Bowl, and the changes will keep happening in the future, so, if you haven't been to Cheyenne Bowl recently, get up there and experience it.

Robert and Kelsey asked me to write this article specifically because they want to thank the community for their support through the first year. Because of you, they can keep the doors open, and all of the changes they have made have been an effort to improve your experience each and every time you walk through the door.

Each Sepheroth on the original tree has a tree within it. In the Sepheroth designated Yesod, or ‘Subconscious,’ aspects of the subconscious are separated out so that each aspect can be examined, learned and applied in dealing with the other aspects. These are your tools and how they can be used. They could be compared to Carl Jung’s archetypes1 but I think of them more as personifications of the Original Whole’s mental possibilities. This takes it out of the realm of collective unconsci

What is a playa? Playas are small, shallow, intermittent wetlands that are disconnected from rivers, streams and lakes. They only fill with water as a result of rain, snow or runoff from nearby land. Playas can remain filled with water from a month to all season long. Kansas has nearly 22,000 playas. They are in the western half of the state.

Proper fence is needed for grazing livestock in a rotational grazing system. As mentioned before, a rest-rotation grazing system is essential for properly managing grazing systems in the western Kansas area of short grass and mid-grass prairie.

Many perimeter fences are 3 or 4 strands of barbed wire. Interior cross-fences are usually a single smooth wire. The interior fe
