FOOTBALL By BOB JOHNSON HUMBOLDT — “I’m doing the best work of my life,” Wes Dewey said during a break in his painting at Works of Art Gallery on the east side of Humboldt’s downtown square. Dewey is artist in residence at the gallery. He works from a studio open to view for people who come to browse. Currently he is completing a painting of two gray wolves, an image of nearly photographic quality. He considers himself a “bird artist,” but even the most critical eye would have difficulty finding flaws with the wolves. “I’ve been working on the wolves quite a while,” Dewey said, noting he had changed brushes several times. “I think I’ve finally found the right one,” a common flat brush that gives warmth to their heavy coats. Dewey has painted all of his life, professionally the past 30 years and all but the last two from his home studio in Petrolia. When Joe and Jane Works decided to convert an old store to an art gallery, they had no question who would be featured. All but a handful of paint- ings on display in the gallery are Dewey’s. Other area artists are featured on a monthly basis. This month it is Norma Petri, Garnett. In December, Micah Guenther, formerly of Humboldt now living in Girard, will have paintings displayed. Also, Dirk Sorenson, Yates Center, has sculptures in the gallery. “Some of the paintings on permanent display were done by Melissa (Burke, his daughter),” who manages the gallery, Dewey said. Dewey is there daily. “Some days I paint eight or nine hours,” he said. “It isn’t unusual for me to come in early in the morning and I often paint into the evening.” “I enjoy having people watch me work,” Dewey added, and he isn’t adverse to giving tips, particularly to youngsters. “I have an idea that if people watch what I’m doing they may become interested in painting. We’ve had more then 30 people sign up for classes,” which may be among the gallery’s offerings in 2013. He also wants to bring a Kansas Junior Duck Stamp Workshop to the Humboldt gallery. “There are 800 kids in the program and I think it would be nice See ARTIST | Page A4 Photo by Mama Schwartz Register reporter Steven Schwartz makes his “boil the bones” turkey soup with leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner.

Iolan, 105, lives life ‘her way’ By ALLISON TINN Carolyn Zellner Shop stocks sewing needs HUMBOLDT — Heavenly Kneads & Threads, 724 Bridge St., is the go-to place for all things to do with quilting. “We have all the supplies for quilting, as well as yarn for knitting, and books and patterns,” said Carolyn Zellner, the shop’s owner. “We also offer classes in knitting, crocheting and quilting.” Zellner will have a storewide sale for her Christmas open house on Dec. 1, which coincides with other open houses in Humboldt shops and the town’s annual Christmas craft show at Humboldt High School. Zellner also does machine quilting for groups and individuals with quilt tops they want finished, but don’t have the time or wherewithal to complete. Hand-quilting is becoming a lost art, she observed. “There still are a few quilting groups, mostly at churches, that hand-quilt,” she said, “but even with five or six ladies it can take a week to do a quilt.” Quilting, the shop’s main focus, isn’t restricted to women, Zellner added. “Some men quilt and some are very good at it,” she said. “At a show in Pittsburg some of the most awesome quilts I’ve seen were done by a man.” The shop observed its sixth anniversary in October. Her clientele comes from within 40 to 50 miles and includes quilting groups whose members go on “shop hops,” visiting several in a day’s time. Last week a group from El Dorado came to Humboldt to see what Zellner had to offer. Zellner also gives massages at the shop, which is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday See SHOP | Page A4 Vol. 115, No. 20 The oldest person in recorded history was Jeanne Calment, 122, of France. Iolan Hazel Moorhead, at almost 106, might not be in the Guinness Book of World Records but she is making her own history in Allen County. Moorhead’s family thinks she might be the oldest person in all of Allen County. Moorhead was born Nov. 29, 1906. She was born on a farm and grew up helping her dad farm, milk cows and skin mules. “She could skin four mules as good as anyone,” Moorhead’s nephew, Dale Mast said of getting a team outfitted. Hazel was second of eight children and was born to Clarence and Mabel “Gangloff ” Beer. Hazel went on to work at a variety of different jobs, one being as a drycleaner in Topeka. She married later in life and didn’t have children of her own, Register/Allison Tinn Hazel Moorhead turns 106 this month, the oldest living person in Allen County. but her nephew and his wife Beulah might as well be her own. The Masts are her closest relatives and visit her twice a week, though they live 65 miles away. Beulah is the only person allowed to do Hazel’s hair, per See HAZEL | Page A4 Budget clash leaves EU close to failure BRUSSELS (AP) — The prospect of failure loomed over a European Union leaders’ summit charged with agreeing on a $1.25 trillion long-term spending plan for the 27-country bloc. As the EU’s leaders resumed another round of negotiations Friday, any sign of a deal remained far out of reach. While heavyweights like Britain and France were pulling in opposite directions, smaller members were also threatening to veto a deal in order to make themselves heard. “I have my doubts that we will come to an agreement,” German 75 Cents Chancellor Angela Merkel said early Friday as she left the first day of the talks, which could stretch into Saturday. The EU budget primarily funds programs to help farming and spur growth in the bloc’s less developed countries. In financial terms, the budget amounts to only about 1 percent of the EU’s gross domestic product, but carries great political significance as it lays bare the balance of power between the bloc’s members. The bloc is divided, notably between richer countries that want to contain their contributions to the common budget at a time of economic malaise, and poorer ones that rely on EU money for development aid and economic investment. British Prime Minister David Cameron is the most vocal leader demanding restraint, while French President Francois Hollande wants the budget to keep paying subsidies for farming and development programs for poorer nations. A revised proposal late Thursday by European Council President Herman Van Rompuy appeared to do little to appease See EU | Page A4 Iola, KS
