    never ever believe what a reporter has to say about your town! I am sure that Sharon Springs is awesome because it has two of the greatest fellows living there. I hope to visit there myself — it is on my bucket list.

    Fascinating how it was considered good for one’s health to soak in sulfur springs. The town must have smelled awful. Do people still come to the town to avail themselves of the waters to relieve their various “gitises”? Thanks for sharing the article. I really enjoyed it.
