Childhood memories
March 29, 2007
As always in time of war, party feeling ran high; even the children were infected by it. There was an irascible little man by the name of Sturdevant whose temper sometimes got the better of his judgment. One morning he rode to our house and called loudly for my father. Of course, we children followed father to the door. Mr. Sturdevant said that he and his son, Bill, had been insulted by a boy calling them “Secesh.”

March 29, 2007
Kansas Highway 10 is De Soto’s lifeline. There is not any other street, road or highway anywhere near the standard of a secondary state highway serving the community. Alternative routes in and out of De Soto, even its 1936 predecessor, are narrow, hilly and would add miles and minutes to many trips to frequent destinations. Any extra traffic on them would require improvement — a burden that would probably fall mostly on local governments.

March 29, 2007
Technically, the De Soto softball team had a worse start than it did a season ago. The Wildcats started that four-win campaign off by splitting a double header with Wellsville, taking the second game with a flurry of late-game heroics.
