Wildfires swept by high winds threatened numerous towns across southern Kansas on Monday night and Tuesday morning. Over 2000 cows were killed in Kansas Fire. Spare estimated they lost at least 1,600 adult cattle and probably another 500 calves, or more. That could equate to losses well into the millions.
One fire came up from Oklahoma, endangering the tiny town of Englewood. Another started north of Ashland and eventually endangered the county seat. Both towns were evacuated.

Bullfighting is a physical contest that generally involves humans attempting to publicly subdue, immobilise, or kill a bull, usually according to a set of rules, guidelines, or cultural expectations. Although people commonly think of Spanish-style bullfighting as representative of bullfighting, there are many different forms and varieties in various locations around the world. Some forms involve dancing around or over a cow or bull, or attempting to grasp an object from the animal.
Freestyle bullfighting is a style of bullfighting developed in American rodeo. The style was developed by the rodeo clowns who protect bull riders from being trampled or gored by an angry bull. Freestyle bullfighting is a 70-second competition in which the bullfighter (rodeo clown) avoids the bull by means of dodging, jumping and use of a barrel. Competitions are organized in the US as the “World” Bullfighting Championship (WBC) and the Dickies National Bullfighting Championship under auspices of the Professional Bull Riders.
Lake of the Ozarks Shootout Poker Run 2016
The Lake Rescue Shootout started in 1988 as an event in which many local boats participated simply to establish who had the fastest boat. As the years went by it became a bigger and bigger event that also helped supplement the Lake Area Fire Departments water rescue efforts.
The Lake of the Ozarks Shootout continues to grow and grow. As the economy improves, so does the generosity of the supporters of the Shootout. As of 2016, With Performance Boat Center coming on board as the title sponsor and a record set for donations at the Auction, the Shootout committee donated an incredible $175,000 to 31 different organizations and charities. After 8 years at Captain Ron’s, the Committee has donated $747,747.00 back to the community. Top Gun accolades went to the Don Onken family as the newly sponsored American Ethanol Mystic powered its way to a piston powered record tying performance of 208 miles per hour. Mystic owner John Cosker and performance boat guru Myrick Coil set the standard for 2015 and made the entire Onken family beam with excitement. The weather was perfect and crowds were amazing and any thoughts of a down year, were immediately squashed. The Shootout is alive and well!!
