    Visitor will long remember act of kindness at Target

    We were treated superbly on road trip to K-State game

    To the Editor: On Sept. 17, I got in the car here in Auburn with three buddies and headed for Kansas. We were looking forward to a nice fall trip to see Auburn play your Wildcats. Upon arriving on campus, we were all stunned by the

    We enjoyed everything about Manhattan… almost

    To the Editor: When Kansas State and ESPN moved the KSU-Auburn football game to a Thursday night, my wife and I were thrilled. With our work schedules, we knew we would not be able to take off portions of two weeks, but one was manageable.
