President Ron Garner of Allen County Community College said the ACCC farmland north of Iola on U.S. 169 will be used this school year as an agricultural lab project. Wheat will be planted and calves raised, he said. He said he hoped to broaden the agricultural offerings at the college.


Dr. T.O. Osborn has been treating patients in his Colony clinic for 43 years and says the clinic treats about 100 patients each day. He is now completing work on an expansion and remodeling of what will be the most modern rural medical clinic in Kansas. His step-son, Dr. Frank Porter, works with him as an associate. Dr. Porter sees patients in the Osborn clinic each morning and spends afternoons in Iola, looking after the former practice of Dr. Eugene Myers.
