Spring, 2005 Issue

Jewell County
A Touch of Wheatwheat art

Kansas is the "wheat state" and visitors often purchase products made from Kansas wheat including flour, pancake mix or Butter Braids. But most don't consider taking the raw product home as a souvenir. However, members of the National Association of Wheat Weavers encourage visitors and residents to do just that.

Republic County
Rags to Riches

North on Main Street, almost out of town, a subtle white metal building sets back among the trees. On a weekday, the parking lot is mostly full with a few spots marked "visitor" saved directly in front of the doors. A passerby might assume it's just another office building.

A Basement in Belleville

Cross through the weathered archway, the patio of retired Rock Island Railroad ties and beyond the suspended porch swing to the enchanting home of Bud and Pat Hanzlick. The door opens almost before the knock: every visitor is warmly welcomed into the unassuming headquarters of internationally known Bekan Rustic Furniture.

And it all started with a complaint.
