    Kansas /ˈkænzəs/ KAN-zəs is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe which inhabited the area. The tribe's name (natively kką:ze) is often said to mean "people of the wind" or "people of the south wind," although this was probably not the term's original meaning. Residents of Kansas are called "Kansans." For thousands of years, what is now Kansas was home to numerous and diverse Native American tribes. Tribes in the Eastern part of the state generally lived in villages along the river valleys. Tribes in the Western part of the state were semi-nomadic and hunted large herds of bison. Kansas was first settled by European Americans in the 1830s, but the pace of settlement accelerated in the 1850s, in the midst of political wars ov...

Caleb Thomas Schwab, 10, died of a neck injury in August 2016 at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City while on the water slide known as the Verruckt, or "insane" in German. The boy was found dead after finishing a ride on the slide, which sent riders plunging 17 stories at up to 50 miles an hour (80 kph). He was riding on a raft with two women who suffered minor injuries when the incident occurred, police said. The boy was the son of Scott Schwab, a Republican state representative from Olathe, a Kansas City suburb. The bulk of the settlement, $14 million, will come from SVV 1 and KC Water Park, two companies associated with the Texas-based water park operator Schlitterbahn, the Kansas City Star reported, citing court documents. Reuters could not immediately obtain the documents. Other parties include the company that constructed the ride and the maker of the raft used on the slide. Attorneys for the Schwab family declined to comment when contacted by the Kansas City Star. The attorneys did not immediately respond to request for comment by Reuters on Thursday. "The Schwab family and all those impacted by the accident will forever be in our thoughts and prayers, and our deepest condolences are with the family," Schlitterbahn said in a statement. "We are thankful to have reached a settlement with all parties. We will be removing the ride from our Kansas City park when given permission by the court, which we have yet to receive." The boy's death prompted legislation last month to tighten restrictions on amusement rides in the state. In November, waterpark officials said the company would close the ride permanently and eventually tear it down. if you like this video please leave a like and subscribe ******************************************************************* CREATED BY RED FRAX NEWS COMMUNITY

Kansas /ˈkænzəs/ KAN-zəs is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern United States. It is named after the Kansa Native American tribe which inhabited the area. The tribe's name (natively kką:ze) is often said to mean "people of the wind" or "people of the south wind," although this was probably not the term's original meaning. Residents of Kansas are called "Kansans." For thousands of years, what is now Kansas was home to numerous and diverse Native American tribes. Tribes in the Eastern part of the state generally lived in villages along the river valleys. Tribes in the Western part of the state were semi-nomadic and hunted large herds of bison. Kansas was first settled by European Americans in the 1830s, but the pace of settlement accelerated in the 1850s, in the midst of political wars over the slavery issue. When it was officially opened to settlement by the U.S. government in 1854, abolitionist Free-Staters from New England and pro-slavery settlers from neighboring Missouri rushed to the territory to determine whether Kansas would become a free state or a slave state. Thus, the area was a hotbed of violence and chaos in its early days as these forces collided, and was known as Bleeding Kansas. The abolitionists eventually prevailed and on January 29, 1861, Kansas entered the Union as a free state. After the Civil War, the population of Kansas grew rapidly when waves of immigrants turned the prairie into farmland. Today, Kansas is one of the most productive agricultural states, producing high yields of wheat, sorghum, and sunflowers. Kansas is the 15th most extensive and the 34th most populous of the 50 United States. This video is targeted to blind users.

A town often becomes a ghost town because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as floods, government actions, uncontrolled lawlessness, war, or nuclear disasters. The term can sometimes refer to cities, towns, and neighborhoods which are still populated, but significantly less so than in years past; for example those affected by high levels of unemployment and dereliction. The exact definition of a ghost town varies between individuals, and between cultures. Some writers discount settlements that were abandoned as a result of a natural or human-made disaster, using the term only to describe settlements which were deserted because they were no longer economically viable; T. Lindsey Baker, author of Ghost Towns of Texas, defines a ghost town as "a town for which the reason for being no longer exists".[1] Some believe that any settlement with visible tangible remains should not be called a ghost town;[2] others say, conversely, that a ghost town should contain the tangible remains of buildings.[3] Whether or not the settlement must be completely deserted, or may contain a small population, is also a matter for debate.[2] Generally, though, the term is used in a looser sense, encompassing any and all of these definitions. The American author Lambert Florin's preferred definition of a ghost town was simply "a shadowy semblance of a former self".

Thanks to the feral honeybees, many of the plants the Europeans brought, like apples and peaches, proliferated. Some 12,000 years ago, North American mammoths, ancient horses, and other large mammals vanished. The first horses in America since the Pleistocene era arrived with Columbus in 1493. Settlers in the Americas told of rivers that had more fish than water. The South American potato helped spark a population explosion in Europe. In 1491, the Americas had few domesticated animals, and used the llama as their beast of burden. In 1491, more people lived in the Americas than in Europe. The first conquistadors were sailors and adventurers. In 1492, the Americas were not a pristine wilderness but a crowded and managed landscape. The now barren Chaco Canyon was once covered with vegetation. Along with crops like wheat, weeds like dandelion were brought to America by Europeans. It’s believed that the domestication of the turkey began in pre-Columbian Mexico, and did not exist in Europe in 1491. By 1500, European settlers and their plants and animals had altered much of the Americas’ landscape. While beans, potatoes, and maize from the Americas became major crops in continental Europe.

Particularly in later years, conflicts were spurred by ideologies such as Manifest Destiny, which held that the United States was destined to expand from coast to coast on the North American continent. In the 1830s, the United States had a policy of Indian removal east of the Mississippi River, which was a planned, large-scale removal of indigenous peoples from the areas where Europeans were settling. Particularly in the years leading up to Congressional passage of the related act, there was armed conflict between settlers and Native Americans; some removal was achieved through sale or exchange of territory through treaties. The Census Bureau in 1894 counted over 40 wars, which killed 19,000 whites and about 30,000 Indians however it did note that the number of Indians killed was likely higher than the count.

(Frank) We're back. (Deb) Frank, I love it when folks contact me with ideas and I don’t have to come up with my own. This next story is one of those examples. Debra Parmenter sent me a message on Facebook. Look at her Facebook page. Share your pictures, share your news. She wanted us to do a segment on Denmark. It's just an amazing little town. I have been to Denmark. Another example of one of those European countries or folks, European refugees came, and colonized just a little piece of Kansas. (Frank) We're talking about Denmark, Kansas? (Deb) We're talking about Denmark, Kansas. (Frank) All right. (Deb) When you visit their Facebook page, make sure you're like Denmark, Kansas in parenthesis. Yes, make sure you check out the right one. It's just a lovely little town on Highway 18 in Lincoln County. What they're doing out there like so many little towns around Kansas is absolutely amazing. We are very proud of your work. The passion expressed by Debra Parmenter for Denmark, Kansas, would lead one to believe that she must have grown up there even though San Diego is her home. But, no, she didn't spend her childhood in Denmark, yet her roots in this small Kansas town go back five generations. Danish Lutherans established Denmark in Lincoln County in 1869, one of the first permanent settlements in the county while the Plains Tribes were still trying to keep white settlers away. The Danes were fleeing their own troubled homeland in the south of Denmark where Germans lay claim to the land. For these Danes, like thousands of other Europeans, America was the Promised Land. It seems to have become that for Debra as well. Explaining that the original town location, or "upper Denmark" was going to be bypassed by the Railroad's coming through so the town folk began building "lower Denmark," a mile or so away, in 1917. A hotel, post office, bank, and commercial building -- the Andreason Building -- were constructed. As its heyday came and went, the structures began to crumble. Debra bought the hotel ten years ago and remodeled it for a residence, where she divides her time between Denmark and San Diego. But across the street, her own family story, in the stones and mortar of the Andreason building, was falling down. Debra spearheaded the creation of the Denmark Preservation Foundation, which is dedicated to saving this and other structures. It has asked Greg Rud to be its official photographer, documenting the transformation. Denmark is one of those places with only a few dozen folks remaining. There is no post office, no school; Denmark is not even officially any longer a town. Yet, the Lutheran Church thrives, as does the community center beside it. The annual Pheasant Day Lunch and the Festival of the Nativities are two events that bring visitors to the town. There are two Facebook pages to follow the success of the project or to learn how to become involved: Get Denmark (Kansas) and the Denmark Preservation Foundation. Better yet, just head out Highway 18 and drop in. Tell them Around Kansas sent you!
