    Every Wednesday, the Kiowa County Independent assembles a fresh collection of diverse voices from the High Plains of Southeastern Colorado.  News, art or sports shares space with columns on solar energy or organic gardening and who visited who this week.  Occasionally, a dash of stunning or maybe provocative photography shows up. And there’s always the favorite "Long Time Gone" where sometimes funny, sometimes tragic but always engaging stories of those “early years” are retold.

    It’s quintessential small town journalism at its best.

    So, get a cup of coffee, sit back in your favorite chair and spend some time with us as we celebrate life lived out on the lone prairie under a big Western sky.
