TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ In a state whose official song salutes deer
and antelope at play on the range, Gov. Sam Brownback has declared
this to be a week to celebrate cowboy poetry.
The governor is urging Kansans to mark Cowboy Poetry Week
through Saturday with ``the appropriate celebration,'' although he
did not say what form that might take.
Brownback issued a proclamation Monday recognizing the
contributions of cowboy poets throughout the state's history. He
says cowboy and pioneer poets have played a large part in
preserving Western heritage and the culture of Kansas.
The proclamation also says the ``long tradition and endearing
qualities'' of telling old stories and poems demonstrate that
cowboy poetry is a cherished Kansas tradition.
