About Randy

‘What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World’ is the 7th release from Portland, Oregon’s The Decemberists.  Initial reviews are calling the band a more seasoned and mature collective than in the past. Having built their reputation on Colin Meloy’s penchant for storytelling, the new record focuses on more personal themes - love, loss and change.  We will listen to each track from this beautiful record this week on High Plains Morning. 

There could be changes on the horizon for the Beef Check Off program.

The conversation flowed smoothly until Committee member Tim Rhodd, expressed disapproval of the concrete-lined ditch.  Rhodd is the chairman of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska.  He says the project will push his region into the same water crisis facing the western part of the state.

Skilled technicians with the right equipment create concert and video light shows that dazzle viewers.  An important component of such expertise is that anyone, anywhere can ooh and aah at  color and light shifting like a living kaleidoscope. Kansans don’t have to wait for light shows to come to town. They only have to look west each evening to enjoy award-winning productions the setting sun and our clear atmosphere create daily.

The Texas Tribune's Ben Philpott talks with experts to help make the Texas budget understandable.

Raising money to promote the beef business seemed like a good idea, so a law was passed, and everyone chipped in. Billions of dollars later, a couple Kansas cowboys are raising questions- and a commotion- about the program. Their cries are as old as the Boston Tea Party: "taxation without representation."
