High Plains regional news
Regional Features
  • My name is Gaye Tibbets and I am from Hutchinson, Kansas. I am a fiction lover, so I am as surprised as anyone that my summer read recommendation is non-fiction.Everyone should read Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Family by Patrick Radden Keefe. It is a long book--550 pages, but it reads like a novel and is about the origins of the opioid crisis.
  • Guisado is a very easy to make Mexican dish and in today's show Luke tells how he made a tasty skillet of guisado from wild pork loin.
  • Howdy, this is Michael Grauer, native Kansan, long-time resident of the Texas Panhandle and the Llano Estacado, and currently McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture/Curator of Cowboy Collections and Western Art at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, for HPPR’s Radio Readers Book Club’s Summer Reading List. For the record, there are too many trees here; they make me claustrophobic. I miss the High Plains.
  • Recently, I began to notice that purveyors of print material and packaging designers have started using much smaller fonts than they used to.
