Q: On Monday, the nation honored its veterans. Parades and special ceremonies were held all across the country. Also on Veterans Day, the University of Kansas installed a newly-reconstructed entry archway at the Kansas Memorial Union. Inside the archway, a series of stars are etched into the stone, paying tribute to Jayhawks who died while serving their country during World War I. How many stars are etched into the archway?

Q:  We're looking for the name of a small southeast Kansas town. Here are your clues:

  • It's located inside the Kansas county with the shortest name.
  • The name of the town is a portmanteau (port-MAN-too) of the names of two former rival towns.
  • The town's name sounds so cute, crunchy and wholesome, you can almost eat it!

Name this town!
