Since 1939, the Fraese Drug Soda Fountain & Grill has been associated with healing pharmaceuticals and tasty old-time fare.

With over 80,000 readers across southwestern Kansas, The Hutchinson News is the third-largest daily paper in the state.

Lifestyle reporting, sports coverage, and special features keep readers in the know with rundowns of high school, college, and pro sporting events, upcoming festivals, and listings for jobs, properties, and sales.

Steve Chapman was born into the auto glass business—his father, a pioneer of at-home windshield repair and installation, opened Chapman Auto Glass in 1960. Steve and his family now carry on his father’s legacy with their self-dubbed “glass shop on wheels.” Steve’s technicians travel to customers’ homes and mend windshields with the same equipment and materials used during the original installation. They use one-hour sealant to hold new windshields in place, meaning owners are back on the road faster than an auctioneer singing a rap song.
The staff members at Four Seasons Firewood possess an encyclopedic knowledge of firewood and smoking wood, able to articulate each wood's properties the way a sommelier articulates a wine's flavors. They know which woods ignite the easiest, which release the best aromas, which burn the longest, and which are best for smoking meats or staking down sentient scarecrows. At any given time of year, Four Seasons' lot stocks ricks and cords of split oak, walnut, hickory, pecan, apple, and more, all available for pickup or delivery.
