Farm Bureau’s Schlageck retires after 45 years of columns

Editor’s Note — John Schlageck and I typically catch up at the Kansas Press Association’s annual convention. I’m there as a member. John is there to oversee the panel discussion on agriculture that Kansas Farm Bureau — a major event sponsor — usually presents at the meeting. This year was different. John didn’t attend the February convention in Topeka. The reason for his absence is explained in the following column. It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway — Kansas agriculture will not be quite the same without John around to write about it.

After 45 years covering agriculture in Kansas and Missouri, I will “pull the pin” (retire) from Kansas Farm Bureau Jan. 31. I’ll put my pen in the desk drawer, close my computer, hang up my camera and turn off the phone. Don’t worry Insight will continue.
