Fire Prevention Week started in 1922 to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, according to the National Fire Protection Association. This year’s observance starts Sunday. Kansas State Fire Marshal Doug Jorgensen answers a few questions about fire prevention. Q: How can folks help safeguard against residential fires? A: The big thing is to have working smoke alarms. We usually recommend the two different time changes (beginning and end of daylight saving time) to replace batteries. An evacuation plan with two ways out of each room in the house also is important. Q: What have you found to be the likeliest culprits in starting house fires? A: Inattentive smoking, kitchen fires, an electrical failure or short

and gas leaks. Q: Is there still a chance for grass fires this year? A: The recent rains we’ve had have been a little deceiving. That has helped in some parts of the state, but the majority still is dry. The other issues are dead vegetation and thatch. Q: Any other fire safety tips? A: Be careful when burning any trash. For farmers, it’s important to have fire extinguishers on their implements. A lot of fires are started by farm equipment getting hot and overheated. Q: How often do house fires occur? A: According to the most recent annual figures, from 2010, home fires were reported in the United States every 85 seconds, killing 2,640 people and injuring another 13,350.

A 38-year-old Basehor man pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to attempting to hire someone to kill his wife, according to a news release issued by the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri. Lee D. Smith in May contacted, then agreed to pay, a man — identified in court documents as a confidential informant — $1,800 to murder Smith’s wife. The man Smith tried to hire for the murder then contacted Kansas City, Mo., police. At the instructions of police, the informant called Smith and informed him he had carried through with the murder and asked for the money, according to the news release. Smith cashed a check for $1,600 in preparation to pay the informant. But Smith was called to the Kansas City police, as Smith was told police had news about his wife. When Smith arrived at the police station, he was arrested. Smith could face a $250,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison for the crime. A sentencing date has yet to be set.

Basehor-Linwood seniors named KU Honor Scholars Kansas University honored nearly 100 Leavenworth County high school seniors as Kansas Honor Scholars — several of whom were from Basehor-Linwood High School — Sept. 26, in Leavenworth. During the ceremony, each student received a Webster’s New College Dictionary from the KU Alumni Association. Neeli Bendapudi, dean for the business school at KU, spoke at the event. There were 96 Leavenworth County Scholars, including 15 students from Basehor-Linwood High School: Rachel Cook, George Davis, Tanner Garver, Zach Hevel, Jared Kenton, Courtney Leive, Joseph Levinson, Austin Mecum, Cheyenne Morris, Paul Rehm, Elizabeth Schler, Haley Stallbaumer and Caleb Wilson, Basehor.

Council won’t rush administrator search By Ann Margret Montemayor

As the search process for a new city administrator is under way, Basehor City Council members made it clear at their study session Monday there’s no reason to rush the process. The new city administrator will need to understand the dynamics of a small town, but one that is also growing and competing for new businesses and contracts, council members agreed. “Our constituents are the customers of the city, and I think an administrator has to understand that,” Council Member Brian Healy said. Council members had varying views on whether the preferred applicants would be from a larger community, such as Overland Park, or a small town like Basehor, but the best candidate will be fully committed to Basehor’s long-term goals and mesh with the current staff, they agreed. The city is in good financial standing, Interim City Administrator Lloyd Martley said, which is illustrated by its AA-minus bond rating it earned from Standard & Poor’s for the $8.8 million in general-obligation bonds it sold. “It’s better and more sound than it’s ever been,” Martley said. The city’s finances may be on track, but Mayor David Breuer brought up a different hindrance in the search. With three city administrators in the last five years, Basehor doesn’t have a good track record, Breuer said. That may make some applicants wary of relocating their family to a new town if they don’t think they have job security. “We’ve got some obstacles to overcome,” Breuer said. Council Member Travis Miles said he would have the same concerns about job security if he looked at the city’s past. “I’d ask ‘What kind of commitment is the city of Basehor making to me, and what kind of commitment am I making to them?’” Miles said. Setting a longer contract length may combat those concerns, he said. But it was pointed out that the previous administrator, Mark Loughry, was fired before his contract was up. Council members will suggest edits

to the city administrator job description as well as a salary range and contract length. They plan to have the job posted in mid-October. In other business at the study session, council members: • Discussed options to change how sewer connection fees are collected on new taps. Gene Myracle, city superintendent, offered six possible options including flat fees, charge by usage, charge by sewer pipe size and several other equations accounting for square footage, usage and other factors. The consensus was that option No. 6 would be most fair, as it charges those who create a larger impact on the sewer plant a larger fee. The council will vote on the issue at its meeting Monday, Oct. 15. • Discussed replacing a police vehicle for Police Chief Lloyd Martley earlier than scheduled to avoid paying for continual maintenance issues. Martley was scheduled to get a new car in 2014. The council will vote on the issue at its next meeting. • Discussed implementation of the city’s employee performance evaluation, which is phase 2 of the city’s salary adjustment plan. Healy will collect sample evaluation plans to share with council members at a future meeting. • Discussed the 142nd Street resurfacing agreement between Basehor and the Unified Government of Wyandotte. The repair cost of $70,000 will be split evenly by the two entities. The council will vote on the issue at its next meeting. • Discussed road repair projects at Bradfort Court and 153rd Street at the Cedar Lakes Subdivision, 160th Circle at the Gardens Subdivision, Wellington Place Drive at Wellington Place Subdivision, and the police department parking lot behind City Hall. • Discussed the purchase of an asphalt smooth drum roller from Coleman Equipment in Basehor. The equipment cost $5,600, which was within purchasing authority and did not need to go to a vote. Myracle said the roller will allow road crews to make repairs more quickly and efficiently while saving the city money because it won’t have to rent it anymore.

Quilter competes in national contest

DEATHS ALMA ROSE 100, Tonganoxie, died 9/27/12 in Kansas City, KS. Funeral was 2 pm Monday 10/1/12 at the Reno Methodist Church, Tonganoxie. Memorials Riford Senior Ctr or Tong. Historical Society


By Ann Margret Montemayor

Judy Masur of Linwood has reached the final round of a national professional quilt design competition. That’s particularly surprising for her, as she isn’t a full-time designer like many of her competitors, she said. Masur started in a field of 30 for McCall’s Quilt Design Star after submitting her first entry, which was a quilt she had already made. The next three entries for the competition were challenges issued to the competitors with certain regulations. The first challenge was to build an entire quilt top around a specific pattern, the Storm at Sea block, and it had to be completed within a month. Masur created a hurricane-like design that resembles a stormy sea and is accented by compass roses, a traditional symbol of maritime navigation. “My quilts always have a deeper meaning,” Masur said. Her design moved her onto the second challenge, which was to design and construct a quilt top using a yard of fabric supplied by the contest. She built an underwater scene, inspired by a poem she wrote for her 4-month-old granddaughter, Destiny Crider. Her final challenge was to incorporate the theme “Opposites Attract,” to which she responded with a quilted portrait of her father meeting his great-granddaughter, Masur’s granddaughter, for the first time. She titled it “Love of the Ages,” showing the relationship between young and old, she

With only nine competitors left in the final round of competition, online voting will decide the final outcome. Whether she wins or not, Masur said, she’s so pleased with the outcome of her final quilt that the competition has been worth the work. “I really did this to get more comfortable getting my work out in front of people,” she said. “I was introverted about it before.” To see all of Masur’s entries in the contest, visit and click on the “McCall’s Quilt Design Star” icon.

Do you get an annual flu shot?

“I always get a flu shot, and when it is time, I couple it with the pneumonia shot. I can’t prove it works but it seems that since I have been getting the shots I do not get sick as often in the winter.”

“Normally I don’t get the flu shot mostly out of my fear of needles, but also, a doctor friend of mine doesn’t take the shots either. I don’t look forward to getting the flu, but I am willing to risk it.”

school, which has been losing enrollment because of aging neighborhoods around it. Older congregations tend to favor an emphasis on the basics of old-time religion: preaching, teaching and music. Toward that end, Hope Lutheran recently purchased a new Pasi Opus 21 pipe organ. It also completed sanctuary and stained glass window renovations during the previous couple of years. Duane McCracken, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Basehor, said his evangelical church also has made recent structural improvements. And it started streaming live online video of services in January to better reach the young, hospitalized and homebound.


said. “A lot of churches tell people everybody’s welcome but then hand them a menu of everything you have to believe, and if you don’t like it there’s the door,” he said. Besides focusing less on dogma, Shawnee Park members want to focus more on making a difference in their community and world. And toward that end, the congregation voted nearly unanimously recently to put the church’s property on the market and to sell all or part of it if that’s what it takes to do more for the poor, hungry and others in need. Selling might entail a move to rental space. But that’s not to say the congregation is planning to downsize. To the contrary, Shawnee Park’s average worship attendance, now about 130, has increased during the past couple of years, Lewis said, and giving is up, as well. But according to assessments by the church and the Disciples of Christ denomination it is part of, “decline was right around the corner if we didn’t make some changes,” Lewis said.

Change vs. constancy Lewis said churches have always needed to change to remain relevant to the cultures they exist in. But the Rev. Mike Bronson, pastor of the West Haven Baptist Church in Tonganoxie, said the growth of evangelical churches reveals that many are swinging back toward that which doesn’t change. “People today are hungry for the truth,” said Bronson, whose church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. Part of the evangelical movement, Southern Baptists emphasize the need for “born again” conversion and a high regard for biblical authority. Thus Bronson, whose church has witnessed 10 percent attendance growth during the past two years, isn’t concerned about the future of organized religion. “Clearly, the Bible teaches that the church is central to the theology of

THE REV. DUANE MCCRACKEN and First Baptist Church in Basehor live stream his church services for people to watch on the Internet. It’s just one way he can boost church attendance by letting members watch from home. Christ’s redemption of the world,” he said. “God calls people together in individual communities to spread his message.” So that’s what they do at West Haven, Bronson said, adding, “We just preach Christ and trust the results to him.” Among the results has been “an awakening to the great needs of the poor,” he said, echoing sentiments behind expanding outreach efforts among several denominations. The Southern Baptists now operate the third largest relief organization in the world, behind the Red Cross and Salvation Army, he said.

The outreach imperative “If you have a church that’s serving people in the name of Jesus Christ with a loving attitude, it makes a difference,” said the Rev. Jan Todd, pastor of Bonner Springs United Methodist Church. When Todd came to the church just over a year ago, it was struggling financially and average worship attendance, now about 220, had drooped to around 120. In response, the church replaced its associate pastor with two half-time, college-age youth directors. In addition, it got more involved in the community and encouraged members to get more involved in the church.

“Our worship spaces need to be more public spaces,” Todd said, referring to the many Scouting and other groups that now meet inside the church. Outside, Bonner Springs UMC has started up a community gardening program, through which members donate 10 percent of their harvest. That’s been more than 800 pounds this year. The church also has made special efforts to reach the under-30 crowd, said Todd, who preaches in jeans during contemporary services featuring guitars and video projections. But while such measures can grow individual UMC flocks, she added, little can be done about one of the primary reason’s for the denomination’s U.S. decline: location.

Location matters After the Revolutionary War, the Methodist church began establishing churches “in every single town,” Todd said. “So here’s all these established churches in all these little towns, many of which are drying up,” she said. “There’s no way they’re going to grow in attendance.” Shawnee isn’t dwindling. But Michael Penikis, associate pastor of Hope Lutheran Church in Shawnee, said that church’s fortunes have been tied to its preschool through eighth-grade

The God factor But McCracken doesn’t attribute the doubling of his church’s average worship attendance, to 206, over the past five years to those changes. “I attribute it to the work of God,” he said, adding that, “Our methods change, but our message doesn’t. We just preach God’s word and try to do it in a loving manner, knowing that you can’t please everybody. For instance, the Bible says, from Genesis to Revelation, that marriage is between a man and a woman.” Like McCracken, the Rev. Ron Swaim of Cornerstone Family Worship in Tonganoxie also credits the growth of his Assemblies of God congregation to the fact that “we’ve found some favor with God.” Having outgrown its previous location, Cornerstone began meeting a year ago in the performing arts center at Tonganoxie High School, where attendance averages about 200. In the spring, the church plans to break ground on a new $1.5 million church that will seat 450, with lots of overflow space. “In other nations, evangelical churches are growing like crazy, changing lives, cities and countries,” Swaim said. “The bottom line in this country is that people just don’t need God, or they don’t think they do. But I see the church becoming more relevant. The worse things get in our economy and our world, the more people are going to be looking for the truth.”

Chef finds inspiration as Red Cross volunteer “

By Caroline Boyer

I like being a first responder; I like to be the first one there. It kind of balances out For the last seven years, Terry Mille has been at the ready to put his life on life.”

hold for others. A chef by trade, the Bonner Springs Red Cross volunteer was first inspired to help others during Hurricane Katrina. His experience there inspired a new path in his career, making him somewhat famous locally for his cheesecakes. But when hurricane season rolls around, he still switches his volunteer status to “active” — he recently spent two weeks in New Orleans following Hurricane Isaac. Originally from Terry Mille the San Diego area, where he went to culinary school nearly 20 years ago, Mille and his wife were living in Kansas City, Kan., when Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. He had never volunteered for the Red Cross before, but he thought he could put his knowledge of food to good use. “A lot of us were shaken by what we saw on TV, and I wanted to do something — I had to do something,” he said. “So I put everything on hold and went down there.” So with all of three hours of training, he arrived three days after the hurricane hit to spend the next three weeks providing food for evacuees. He was placed in Baton Rouge at an evacuee shelter in Southern University’s sports arena. “There was no food down there … it was strictly off the cuff,” Mille said. “I had to go beg, borrow and steal from different food banks throughout the United States.” He and others organized donations from food banks in Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado. “I had over 600 residents at the shelter, and I was doing everything I could to feed them three meals a day,” he said. “… The concession stand was all I had to cook out of, so I had to get really creative.” He worked with one of the univer-

sity’s sororities, borrowing huge castiron pots from their relatives to create an outdoor kitchen and cook gumbo and beans and rice. He also arranged to have pizzas donated for the shelter residents to enjoy as they watched a New Orleans Saints football game. “I wanted to get personal with them, I wanted to show them that they were more than … ‘evacuees,’” he said. “They kept using that word and I hated that.” The residents in return gave him an education in their local food, particularly their sweets. When Mille returned to Kansas City, he was inspired to make use of his new knowledge. It was his first foray into cheesecakes. “I always did savory dishes and stuff like that,” he said. “But I came back, played with the flavors and came up with a sweet potato cheesecake, and CowTown Cheesecakes was basically born out of that.” Now, CowTown’s reputation is growing. Mille provided cheesecakes for campaign events when First Lady Michelle Obama visited Kansas City in March, and he was selected as one of the area’s best chefs to provide food for an ALS Association event. It is currently an online-only business — Mille uses kitchens in Kansas City, Kan., and Shawnee to create cheesecakes as needed — but Mille hopes to open a storefront, likely in the Westport area, sometime in the next year. His volunteer efforts continue to inspire his business. To this day, all his ingredients come from New Orleans. And his recent time in Montgomery, Ala., where he waited to be deployed to New Orleans after Hurricane Isaac, inspired a banana pudding cheesecake with a bacon bananas foster sauce. During his recent disaster relief deployment, Mille helped feed New Orleans residents whose power was out due to flooding. And no matter how

much his cheesecake business takes off, he says he will always make time for the Red Cross. “I like being a first-responder, I like to be the first one there. It kind of balances out life,” he said. “That’s what I tell my wife, whenever we have problems with money or whatever ... I just think back to Katrina or Isaac, and the problems those people had, and that makes our problems just seem miniscule.”

Dropping back one more time

Jaynes enters Kansas Sports Hall of Fame By Stephen Montemayor

On Sunday in Wichita, David Jaynes will be inducted into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame. So, a few months back, he picked up the phone to talk to a reporter about the honor. This meant he had to talk about football again, about the 21-year-old college kid he used to be rather than, say, pilot his airplane or tend land on his Telluride, Colo. property — both he’d much rather be doing than talking about football again. But before long David Jaynes is choked up, reliving one of the earliest, most pivotal memories he associates with the game. In the story he’s telling, he’s a 15-year-old Bonner Springs High sophomore again, years away from setting passing records at Kansas University, decades away from living happily and comfortably on the west coast. “Hang on a second,” he says, his voice cracking. ••• He’s in Monticello, N.Y. the summer

On the third day of camp, director Hank Stram — yes, that Hank Stram — approached. “Say, you throw that ball awfully

get better.” The next day, inside the camp’s mess hall, Stram towered over his seat at the head table. Jaynes was just settling into his own seat when he saw the coach’s finger pointing his direction. “No, you. Come here,” Stram said after Jaynes did the classic lookaround. “What do you do during the summer?” Stram asked Jaynes. “I haul hay on a farm in Kansas,” was the reply. “Do you have to work?” Stram asked. “How about you come over and stay with the Chiefs during our summer camp?” Hang on a second. “Even today I get emotional about that,” Jaynes now says over the phone. “Because that was really the event that moved me into their world for six weeks. I lived with the Chiefs. I threw to Otis (Taylor) during warm-ups … That just catapulted me into a totally different mentality about sports and whether you can accomplish something with them.” ••• Pretty soon, Bonner Springs junior quarterback Jordan Jackson will start hearing from college coaches, each pitching their programs in the evercompetitive college football recruiting landscape.

Bonner Springs’ only other score came on a 7-yard pass from Jackson to Mason Roberts with 3:22 left in the second quarter. It was on Mill Valley’s next drive that Rebeck tossed his trick-play touchdown to a diving Tyler Garrison to carry a 35-12 lead into halftime. Jackson finished the game with 88 passing yards on 11-of-24 completions and an interception by Ryan Bath. Mill Valley was also able to get to Jackson for three sacks, doing its best to stifle the dual-threat passer. “I think defensively we played very physically tonight,” Mill Valley coach Joel Applebee said. “That’s something we really pushed the last couple weeks.” Meanwhile, the Jaguars — who’ve outscored KVL opponents 211-25 this

That was just a great call by them.” Turner quarterback Paul Berry ran for 192 yards and two scores while Potter ran for 120 yards and two scores on the Basehor-Linwood side. Even considering the night the Bobcats had, Ben Johnson had perhaps one of the best plays of the game, snagging a fourth-and-18 pass in double coverage for a 28-yard touchdown. The positives were hard to appreciate, even for the homecoming king.

season — were able to keep Bonner Springs’ large defensive front away from Windmiller for much of the game, buying the quarterback plenty of time on each throw to find the open man he knew he could count on seeing. With junior running back Jared Knershield out, much of the onus fell on Jackson to pick up the slack in the running game. No other Brave carried the ball more than six times — that player being freshman Marcell Holmes, who was given a look on Friday — nor did any other player rush for more than six yards. Bonner Springs (3-2) will host Basehor-Linwood (2-3) in a rivalry game pitting two teams eager to end recent slumps. “We match up a lot better than we did against these guys,” Aslin said. “Basehor’s more of a run team and we defend the run OK. They’re struggling a bit right now just like we’ve been struggling the last two games. It’s just whoever can turn it around the quickest.” heads, there will be no sloppy plays during the week. The conviction in Garver’s voice was enough to suggest that this Bobcat team will be completely different next week. “We’re going to practice harder. We are. It’s all the way from freshmen to seniors,” he said. Next Friday will be the prime week to rebound because it will be against rival Bonner Springs, who is enjoying a successful season with plenty of talent. Hopkins sees this as the best-case scenario for his team coming off a loss because they will be amped to play all week. As if this team needed any more motivation. “It’d be harder if were actually playing someone we didn’t care about,” Hopkins said. “In that regard, it will be better for our kids because they will be excited about playing better.” ONLINE: Watch a live broadcast of Friday’s Braves-Bobcats game at 7 p.m.

BRIEFLY Walcott leads Bobcat runners

Braves downed by Ottawa

Basehor-Linwood sophomore Quinnlyn Walcott placed 20th in the Gary Gribble’s Saucony XC Classic in Baldwin on Saturday. Walcott led the Bobcats’ girls team with a time of 16:48. The girls placed sixth out of seven teams. On the boys side, junior Luke McGowan led the way with a time of 17:55, good for 30th place and the boys placed sixth out of nine teams. Basehor-Linwood returns to competition at 4 p.m. on Thursday in the Pleasant Ridge Invitational.

The Bonner Springs boys soccer team notched three goals but fell to 0-8-2 with a 5-3 loss to Ottawa on Monday. Austin Schuler, Jacob Kraus and Colin Barker each recorded goals, with assists coming from Sam Nelson and Robbie Glenn.

BSHS JUNIOR JORDAN JACKSON again led the Braves in both rushing and passing on Friday, but Mill Valley rolled to a 49-12 victory.

After rout by Mill Valley, Braves turn sights on Bobcats By Stephen Montemayor

There wasn’t much Bonner Springs football coach Lucas Aslin could say after the Braves’ 49-12 loss at home against Mill Valley that the scoreboard didn’t already proffer. “We didn’t have an answer for what they did,” Aslin said. Mill Valley quarterback Skyler Windmiller threw four of his six touchdown passes in the first quarter as the Jaguars coasted to a victory that was rarely, if ever, in doubt. Windmiller completed 17-of-25 passes for 271 yards and six scores to help give Mill Valley (4-1) its fourthstraight victory and fourth Kaw Valley League blowout in as many games. “We knew all week what was going to be open and where I was going to be throwing it,” Windmiller said. Staton Rebeck and L.J. Hatch each caught three of Windmiller’s six touchdown passes, and Rebeck added a 12-yard touchdown pass of his own on a fake field goal attempt late in the first half.

It took the Jaguars barely more than a minute to go up 14-0 in the first quarter. Hatch, who finished with three receptions for 132 yards, took the opening kickoff down to Bonner Springs’ 43-yard line to set up the first scoring drive. Windmiller then completed four-consecutive passes, the last of which to Rebeck for a 9-yard score. On Bonner Springs’ first play from scrimmage, Hatch recovered a fumble by Jonathan Blackwell to set Mill Valley up on its opponents’ 27-yard line, from which Windmiller needed just one play to find Rebeck for another touchdown. Bonner Springs junior quarterback Jordan Jackson again put the offense on his shoulders throughout the game, pulling within 14-6 on its second possession. Jackson, who led the Braves with 147 rushing yards on 19 carries, ran in a six-yard touchdown to pull within one possession with 10:08 left in the opening quarter. Jason Van Maren’s extra point attempt, however, was blocked. Please see BRAVES, page 15

BLHS SENIOR TANNER GARVER contributed chiefly as a runner and receiver on Friday against Turner as fellow senior quarterback Zac Hevel threw for a season-high 143 yards.

Basehor-Linwood also seeking recovery after coming up short By Corey Thibodeaux Contributing Writer

Before Basehor-Linwood coach Steve Hopkins could huddle the team after its 28-22 loss to Turner, the players let him know that they understood what happened out there. More importantly, they said it wouldn’t happen again. “This will make us better, coach,” some players told him. “We’ll get better. We’ve got to learn from this.” This game cannot be summarized by one play or a sudden shift of momentum. Turner came to Basehor-Linwood’s Homecoming and executed on the plays it needed most and the Bobcats, for whatever reason, could not. “We’re right there, we just can’t finish,” senior quarterback Tanner Garver said. “I don’t know what it is, we just can’t finish right now.” Garver and Hopkins each listed a handful of plays that were as educational as they were frustrating. The Bobcats (2-3) started the game with a three-and-out and allowed a punt return to the one-yard line, which took

Turner one play to score. It was an uphill battle from there. Basehor-Linwood then drove down the field, had first-and-goal on the 8-yard-line, but a gimmick play to Drew Potter went for minus-five yards. On fourth-and-10, the Bobcats went for it and Garver threw an interception. The next drive ended on downs while trying to convert a first-and-25. And the Bobcats’ drive after that one ended inches before the first down on fourth-and-eight. “By the third time we didn’t get it in,” Hopkins said, “I knew it might not be our night.” The gut-wrenching stat of the night came from the Bears (3-2), and much to their credit. Three of their four touchdowns occurred on fourth down: a 26-yard quarterback scramble, a 20yard pass and, for the big finish, a 21yard halfback pass to the quarterback. Turner had done everything else it wanted to, so why not? “That’s an unusual play that our Please see BOBCATS, page 15

BUSY BEES Blossom Trail Bee Ranch, featured on upcoming northeast Kansas farm tour, shows nature at work

By Sara Shepherd

Buzzing bees blanket the tray of honeycomb in Richard Bean’s bare hands. At close range, their striped abdomens and delicate wings are visible in detail. After 40 years of keeping bees, Bean still marvels at them. “Gorgeous creations,” he says. Spotting the queen, Bean pokes his finger into the mass of insects, gently nudging away some of the worker bees to show her off. “How does she Bean create 2,000 eggs a day?” he muses. “Machinery that we cannot really, in any way, manufacture — natural machinery.” Bean’s Blossom Trail Bee Ranch, 669 E. 2100 Road in Baldwin City, will be one of 22 farms open to the public this weekend during the annual Kaw Valley Farm Tour. Bean sells the honey, bee pollen and honeycomb he raises at the Saturday Lawrence Farmers Market and both Lawrence Hy-Vees, 3504 Clinton Parkway and 4000 W. Sixth St. He harvests his products from about 20 hives he keeps at his home and another 10 or so he has off site. Bean says he believes bees can sense fear. Perhaps that’s why he gets along with them. Bean is not a man who is easily agitated. He’s tall and thin, and moves

quietly and deliberately. His voice is soft. He speaks slowly. He’s calm, even while prying off the lid of a hive of bees whose instincts tell them to sting predators threatening their colony — best in the eye or mouth, the only place they could injure a woolly bear, for example. That’s why Bean wears a hat with face netting, just in case. “Hi girls,” he says, as the bees swirl around him. The beekeeper in his hometown of Beloit taught Bean the trade. His first project was removing a colony of unwanted bees from a resident’s shed and moving them into the right equipment so he could keep them for himself. “Just had a notion I wanted to do it,” Bean said of beekeeping. “I think after a while, you sort of realize it sort of fits your personality.” In addition to raising his own bees, Bean teaches beekeeping for beginners and gets called a couple times a month to remove bee colonies from homes and trees. If he can keep them alive, which he tries to do, he can relocate the bees to his own hives and harvest their honey. From time to time, Bean does get stung. He’s learned a little onion juice is the best thing to take the edge off the sting. “Sometimes I get a little too brave,” he said. “But ... I’ve been around bees long enough that I pretty much respect their instincts.” On a cool, overcast day last week, most of Bean’s bees were holed up in their hives. He said they like to be warm and they’re more active when it’s hot — but not too hot.

Richard Gwin/Lawrence Journal-World

RICHARD BEAN INSPECTS TRAYS OF HONEYCOMB in one of the hives he keeps at his Blossom Trail Bee Ranch near Baldwin City. Bean recalled observing his bees during this summer’s most sweltering days. They wisely did their work before dawn and after dusk, relaxing in the hive during the hottest part of the day. “They were pretty much beaten down by the heat,” he said. “They respected what it did to them and what it took out of them.” Seeing nature at work is among Bean’s favorite things about keeping bees. “You never stop learning,” he said. — Lawrence Journal-World features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.
