(Photo by Janet Campbell)One hundred and forty years ago, inside a small cabin in north-central Kansas, the following words were first written-down: "Oh, give me a home, where the buffalo roam."  This week, the Kansas Senate passed a resolution celebrating the old cabin near Smith Center where those words were first committed to paper. 


That's Republican state Senator Bob Marshall, of Fort Scott, talking about efforts to restore and preserve Brewster Higley's cabin, the birthplace of the official state song of Kansas, "Home on the Range."
