Rather than provoking a unified response from elected officials, each additional shooting seems to be widening the political divide among states on who should be allowed to have guns and what types are OK.

Business steps into the future with a nod to the past

More than a century ago, families who lived in the hills surrounding Burdett came "downtown" to Burdett by wagon and the occasional Ford to do their weekly shopping.

This new business is located at the former home of the Burdett Fire Company, which moved to its new digs at the edge of the village in 2018.
