Mathison began his ever growing business adventure in the basement of his Woodbine home 13 years ago, packing the space with a lathe, mill and a surface grinder. “I wanted to do some thing on my own with ideas in my head,” he said. “I was mainly just building stuff for myself like modifying fishing poles – just playing around with those ideas in my head.” It didn’t take long for news to spread via word of mouth about Chris’ ideas and talents. Chris admits it only took about eight months in his basement shop before friends told friends and soon he wound up sharpening lawn mower blades, extracting broken bolts and other small, odd jobs. Those little jobs added up. It only took two years before Chris outgrew his little, basement shop. So he moved to the garage. He continued to add tools and equipment to his modest beginnings … which led to a garage See C&M Page 6 The Woodbine Main Street-Chamber Business Improvement Committee welcomed C&M Machine Shop to Woodbine’s downtown district on Aug. 3.

Photo: Submitted NIKKI DAVIS Editor Angie Kuehn wasn’t afraid to get a little bit dirty. In fact, she wasn’t even afraid to crawl under barbed wire through a gigantic mud puddle. But of course, she knew that’s what she would be up against when she agreed to attend the Warrior Dash event July 31 in Kansas City with her “Boot Camp Family.” Kuehn has been attending boot camp at Reality Wellness in Omaha, Neb. with season three Biggest Loser contestant Marty Wolff as the instructor. Those that attend, according to Kuehn, consider themselves more than workout friends – they’re family. The ‘family,’ complete with their own Facebook page, decided amongst themselves via Facebook, that attending the Warrior Dash might be worth looking in to. “I’ve been at Marty’s boot camp for almost a year and we do a lot of 5k’s and other events together. One member found out about the Warrior Dash and posted it on our Facebook wall. We all thought we’d do it as our first ‘family vacation,’” Kuehn said, smiling wide. So 18 of the boot campers made the trip to try their luck at the somewhat distorted version of a 5k run/walk. “It’s like a 5k – only in the mud with obstacles,” Kuehn explained. “This one had 11 obstacles throughout the course. Some were like jumping over small fire pits and there was another one where you had to go over this board and under another and over, under, over, under. There was also a ‘dead man’s drop’ where you went up a ladder and crawled across a net rope and down the other side.” As she stepped up to the line, she was nervous. “I just didn’t think I could do See KUEHN Page 6 Woodbine presents ... a Step In Time NIKKI DAVIS Editor Penny Peterson taught dance lessons for 24 years, before retiring in 2009. Her daughter, and 2009 Woodbine High School graduate, Danielle Peterson, has been dancing since she was 5. The motherdaughter pair will now be bringing their collaborative 40 years of dance experience to Step In Time, a new dance studio, opening its Woodbine doors Sept. 26. The new studio will be bringing an array of dance to the community. “We plan on teaching tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical … all kinds of flavors,” Penny said. Enrollment, which is currently taking place, is open to any pottytrained 3 year olds, through high school students and will even offer fitness dance classes for adults. All classes are for females and males. And the classes should prove to be beneficial, not in just learning one dance for one recital, but by teaching technique. “For our younger students, we’re not just going to work on a dance. Sometimes it’s hard for little ones to stay See DANCE Page 6 Old Settlers to mark 125 years Katie Church entertained along the Old Settler’s parade route in 2010.

That first year, approximately 1,000 people gathered in the grove surrounding the schoolhouse for the very first Old Settlers meeting. Since that time, Old Settlers has become a historic event in Harrison County and various committees have kept it running year after year. This year’s committee includes president Dave Weigelt, Janette Weigelt, Chuck and Darlene Lamberson, Bill and Deb Harvey and boys, Donna Norris, Kaylee Billmeier, Dave Cox, Kelie Haken, Ruth Beck and family, Marcus and Evelyn Weigelt, Rhonda McHugh, Joetta Alexander, Tina Harper and Jo Lyman.
