Traveled to GOP Platform meeting via Cottonwood Falls, Kansas to attend the Friday night music jam, a portion of the Prairie Fire Festival. The Flint Hills home of the last tall grass prairie in the nation, Ranchers burn the pasture land to control growth of red cedar preserving the land for grazing by cattle as done for decades. Traveling on the turnpike from Emporia to Topeka saw many fires including the one pictured in this video. In Topeka, attended the Republican State Committee meeting which adopted a platform with strong support for development of renewable energy.
