So nice to be featured in KAKE's lead story last night. We sincerely would like to see the largest city in Kansas feature the name of one of the Kansas heroes of World history. If you are unfamiliar with Eisenhower's accomplishments, you can google him and learn a great deal. He led all the allied forces to victory in WWII and was a great president as well. He is the 10th most popular and 10th most influential president of all time in survey after survey. Although he was the only one of the Eisenhower children born in Texas, his family was from Kansas and moved back here before he was two years-old. He claimed Kansas and we claim him. His museum/library/boyhood home is in Abilene, Kansas not Texas. I can't see any reason for any attachment to the name "Mid-Continent" except "its always been that way". Actually it hasn't, but even if it had...never changing means stagnation.
