Kohler Aviation had been used by former TWA President Richard Robbins as a test case. Robbins, who was forced out of TWA for his involvement in the Spoils Conference of 1930, convinced Kohler they would benefit from his involvement. Robbins was named Vice-President of Kohler Aviation. It was then that the carrier's application for their own contract was denied by the Post Office. Robbins then resigned from Kohler.

But a few cowboys still call Belvidere home, including 71-year-old Dick Robbins, whose ranch is situated not far from town.
"Oh yeah," he says matter-of-factly. "I'm living proof that the only ex-cowman is a dead man."
He has "250 damn cows now" after being down to zero twice.

Despite its beauty, there was little potable water, Robbins said.
"You could drill a hole in downtown Belvidere and you'll probably find fluid that even a rabbit couldn't drink," he said. "The good water came a little higher."
The railroad began shipping water in tank cars, transferring it to a cistern near the depot, according the Kiowa history book. Crews drilled a well two miles east and eventually water was piped into town.

"There never was a legal source of alcohol," Robbins said with a chuckle, but noted his father, a couple uncles and a cousin all graduated from Yale.
...
Robbins' father, Richard, graduated form Yale in 1913 and attended Carnegie Tech. He then worked on the New York Stock Exchange. He eventually was president of Trans World Airlines.

In the early 1970s, Dick Robbins took over the operation.
...
Robbins said he recalls when there were six trains a day going into Belvidere. He also recalls the day the 2002 when the last train rolled into town.
It still brings hard feelings to the surface for Robbins, who said he wouldn't elaborate much on the topic.
However, he said matter-of-factly, "that railroad didn't die a natural death.
