Sidewinders combine passion with charity By Mike Courson Ever since Marlon Brando played The Wild One in 1953, and Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper teamed up in Easy Rider nearly 20 years later, the American biker has held a certain mystique. The modern motorcyclist may look the part, but is usually more interested in the ride than anything else. For the Kansas Sidewinders MC, that passion for the road is merely an avenue to do good for the community.

Board of Education approves personnel changes for USD 355

Central Kansas Medical Center has upgraded to a higher level of MRI comfort and technology with the Siemens MAGNETOM Symphony MRI. Here’s what it means for you:


The Ellinwood Board of Education met on May 14 to discuss several items and approve several personnel changes throughout USD #355. Several parents were on hand for the FBLA presentation, which was moved to the front of the meeting. The Future Business Leaders of America will present their program for the National Conference in San Antonio this summer. Sponsor Lori Betts spoke to the board requesting a loan for expenses associated with the trip. Those expenses would be repaid with fundraising at a later date. The trip to San Antonio passed with a

Benefit auction and dinner to be held for Berger family


Hi Neighbor! to Dorothy Huddelston, Frank Koelsch, Fred Gunn, Ken Lebbin, Kent Roth, Joe Schulte, Alice Rush, Patty Kirkpatrick and Jeff Thorson and T.J. LaRocca from Omaha, Nebraska for stopping by the office this week. Hi Neighbor! to everyone who organized, worked, attended and participated in the K-96 June Jaunt! It was a huge success! Hi Neighbor! to Adam Ranger from Wyoming - the very talented magician who performed at Wolf Park Friday evening. Hi Neighbor! to Kevin Clair - sorry for the misprint last week. Summer ball games have begun so be sure to check out a game or two this summer. Make plans to attend the After Harvest Festivities July 19-21. Cool off at the City Pool! A friendly reminder! The Twilight Stitcher meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the 14 with a potluck. Roll call will be Christmas ideas.



By Mike Courson The food will be good, and the cause will be better. This Saturday, a whole-hog barbeque and feed at Sidewinders Motorcycle Club on Main Street Ellinwood will serve as something more than just a meal. The dinner and auction will benefit long-time Ellinwood resident Roger Berger and his family. Last October, Berger was diagnosed with prostate cancer. While preparing for that surgery, Berger was also diagnosed with pancreatic cancer three months later. Berger was raised in Ellinwood where he now lives with wife, Trish. The family includes four children. Lydia, 15, attends Ellinwood High School. Sarah, 20, also lives in Ellinwood, and is employed by USD #428 as a ParaEducator while attending Barton Community College. Berger’s son, Christopher, 26, lives in Great Bend with his wife, Megan. Phillip, 24, lives in Lawrence and works for Drink Eat Well, a facility that makes veggie burgers. Phillip is engaged to Tara O’Callaghan, and

the couple have a fourmonth-old daughter Annalie Jean. Coworkers have rallied to help offset some of the medical costs associated with Berger’s treatments. Joe Blazek, of Boots Style BBQ in Great Bend, has worked with Roger for nearly 20 years at Primus Sterilizer, and will be doing the cooking. Many businesses that work with Primus have made donations for a silent auction, and a regular auction on Saturday. The smaller items will go via silent auction, and the larger items will be auctioned off the oldfashioned way. The marquee item is a Troy-built, self-propelled walkbehind mower donated by Miller Lawns in Hoisington. Approximately 20 items will be auctioned in total, gift certificates from Ellinwood Packing Plant, oil changes from Marmies and Becker Tires in Great Bend, and women’s beauty products. “We’ve all worked with Roger – some of us for going on 20 years,” Blazek said. “All these business donating, a lot see BENEFIT page 2

Plains Folk

Col. no. 1522 - 6/4/2012

Commissioner’s Corner by Tom Isern

Putting Haskell County on the Map Loring Miner never asked to be the bearer of bad news—the beginning of a pandemic that would kill more than 20 million people, maybe as many as 100 million. This was the influenza outbreak of 1918, and it started in Haskell County, Kansas. That’s according to the research of science writer John M. Barry, published in his book, The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, and summarized in the Journal of Translational Medicine. Now, if you’re from Kansas, this guy Barry is easy to dislike. He recounts how Dr. Loring Miner, a graduate from Ohio University with a degree in Classics who came to western Kansas in 1885, had a background “so unlike his fellow frontiersmen.” Barry must not be familiar with the social profile of frontier towns on the plains, which boasted many well-educated people. Later Barry writes of Haskell County, “There the smell of manure meant civilization.” A little patronizing, right? The writer also seems confused as to whether Haskell is a county or a town. Nevertheless, he uncovers an intriguing story, at the center of which is Dr. Loring. Loring was a good doctor who kept up with medical advances,

including this newfangled thing called germ theory. He prospered in business and medicine and married a woman with land. A lovely photo in the collections of the Kansas State Historical Society shows his little children, Lorene and Loring, standing between the rows in a field of kaffir corn. In January and February of 1918 Dr. Loring began having patients, dozens of them, presenting with symptoms of influenza that were much more intense than usual. In some cases the disease progressed to a secondary infection, and the patients died of pneumonia. This was a killer flu, the result of a fatal mutation of the influenza virus. It apparently took place right there in western Kansas, and might have remained local in its impact. During this time, however, young army recruits from the locality were going back and forth to Camp Funston, in Riley County. It happened that this particular mutation of influenza was unusual in that it most afflicted young adults—such as the tens of thousands of troops concentrated at Camp Funston. Or those crowded on troop transports going to France to fight. Or those huddled miserable in the trenches of the Western Front. The killer virus from western Kansas shot

right through the armed forces and then spread to the rest of the world. It crossed No Man’s Land to hit the German trenches harder than an artillery barrage. Field Marshall Ludendorff said the influenza was a major reason why the German offensive of 1918 stalled out, and thus Germany lost the war. At the time of the original outbreak of disease in Haskell County, Dr. Loring reported it to the US Public Health Service, which published the report in its monthly bulletin. Nobody paid much attention at the time, because medical people were intent on trying to treat the disease, not write its history. Medical people think differently now. They are concerned with the histories of epidemics and with tracing them to their origins, the better to anticipate new epidemics today. The problem is, the history of the Haskell County origins of the influenza pandemic, while an interesting story, doesn’t give investigators anything useful to guide them now. It seems to indicate that a viral mutation and thus a new pandemic could happen anywhere—even someplace in Kansas a science writer can’t even place on a map.

After the review and approval of appropriations on June 4, 2012, the Barton County Commission moved to New Business and continued the burning ban. While some areas of the County received a nice rain last week, other parts remain dry. Amy Miller, Emergency Risk Manager, said that under the ban, open campfires and fires are prohibited. Persons wanting to learn more are urged to contact their local fire department or visit the County’s website We then, for the second year in a row, honored Ellinwood and Great Bend High School students involved with FBLA - Future Business Leaders of America. Six students from Ellinwood and six from Great Bend have earned entrance in the FBLA national conference Kayla Schartz, Rachel Morales, Sarah Fox, Kyle Blakeslee, Rachel Doll and Stephanie Troyer, directed by EHS teacher Lorie Betts, and Sarah Niederee, Haley Deines, Kevin Smith, Dylan Dreiling, Donna Craven and Ryan Jacobs directed by GBHS teacher Cody Lee. It was explained that FBLA, the largest business career student organization in the world, recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas through a National Awards Program. Students must receive eligibility at the Statelevel to compete nationally. It was our honor to recognize the students

Scores on State Assessments are improving, and should continue to improve next year. Debbie Lebbin was recognized for 10 year of service at the school, and Eileen Huslig was commended for her years of service in the kitchen at the school. Henderson presented the middle school electives for next year, and expressed gratitude to Sunflower Bank for its donation to the school. In new business, Rachel Sieker will be attending the Josten’s Advisor University Conference this summer in Orlando. Expenses will be paid for out of Perkins funds. That motion was approved 7-0. Also in new business, Jacobs asked for discussion on whether the Board thought the girls’ softball program should be continued due to dwindling numbers of participants. The item was discussed, and it

was agreed that any decision should be thought out and all avenues explored. The Board also accepted several resignations, and announced the filling of several more positions. Andre Spence resigned as at-risk aide at EHS, and Wendy Hughes resigned as bus driver. Paul Ringering also resigned from his bus driving and grade school aide positions. Kacey Allen resigned as library aide at the grade school. Katelin Clawson was approved as the new sixth-grade teacher for the 2012-13 school year. Kyle Kroeker was approved as the new sixth-grade teacher, and assistant football and basketball coach at EHS for the 2012-13 year. Molly Cherry was approved at 2012 Summer School Kindergarten instructor, and Cody Clair was approved as summer assistant technology aide. The next USD #355 Board of Education meeting will be held Monday, June 11, 2012 at 6 p.m. in the School Community Library.

of them don’t really know Roger and are still willing to put stuff in. A lot of the businesses have worked with Primus Sterilizer.” Berger is currently seeking treatment at the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Tulsa every two weeks, but has still found the time and energy to go to work. “He’s still coming to work whenever he can to help out,” said Blazek.

“He went to treatment on Friday, and he was at work (Tuesday). He still goes about his job just like nothing is really going on. He’s just helping Primus as much as he can.” Saturday’s feed is open to the public, and will be by free will donation. The event is from 5-7 p.m. at the Sidewinder’s Motorcycle Club. The auction will also take place from 5-7 p.m.

We then adjourned to the Barton County Employee Picnic. Held in the Jack Kilby Square, we served our employees their lunch. We don’t have the opportunity to meet with majority of employees at one time often, but when we do, it’s certainly a great time to express our appreciation for their daily efforts. The more I see of Barton County employees, the more impressed I am with their dedication to their work and their commitment to serving the people of Barton County. Their efforts are truly, truly appreciated. I am here to represent you and am very interested in your opinions on these and other matters.

Flesh and Blood So Cheap: The Triangle Fire and Its Legacy by Albert Marrin. On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burst into flames.

Kansas statewide electronic health information exchange to debut July 1 Topeka - A statewide electronic health information exchange capability will “go live” on July 1, 2012. This new service offers simplified communications capabilities to health care providers who are involved in treating the same patient thereby promising to improve patient care. Many health care providers and hospitals have signed on to participate in two electronic health information exchange services that have been approved to operate in Kansas. The two exchanges are the Kansas Health Information

Friendship Meals Menu

Networks (KHIN) and the Lewis and Clark Information Exchange (LACIE). Health care providers who diagnose and treat a patient can quickly and securely access the exchanges to electronically obtain medical history from other providers who may have previously been involved in treating that same patient. This access will allow health care providers to ensure that prescriptions are compatible with medications the patient may have obtained from other health care providers. In addition, it will allow health care providers and

patients to avoid inconvenience and costs that arise from repeating tests that may have been performed previously. Ready and secure access to a patient’s medical history also could prove to be a critical factor in a life-threatening emergency. Health Information Exchange requires that patient records be kept on Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems in order to be exchanged. In addition to the larger urban areas, over 1,450 medical providers in small rural practices and 95 rural hospitals have committed to see HEALTH page 4

Ellinwood falls short at Great Bend

By Mike Courson Somebody had to win. Tuesday’s Babe Ruth match-up between Ellinwood and Great Bend VFW featured two teams looking for their first win. Great Bend beat the Eagles to the punch, taking game one 9-5 in a time-limited five inning game. Great Bend took game two 7-3. Ellinwood struggled to figure out Great Bend pitcher Brett Basye, coming up with just one hit in the first two innings of game one. Jacob Milton got the start for Ellinwood, allowing seven hits and six earned runs in his four innings of work. He did strike out four VFW batters. Trailing 2-0 after one inning, Ellinwood got on the board in the second frame. Zak Pflughoeft walked and moved around the bases with help from a Kylin Phelps single. Pflughoeft scored on a wild pitch, and Phelps tied the score on a Basye balk.

Wild pitches hurt Milton in the second inning. He struck out the first batter of the inning, who reached on a dropped thirdstrike. The VFW also scored another run on a wild pitch to take a 6-2 lead. With two outs in the third inning, Milton and Tyson Martinez singled. Both later scored on errors. Milton struck out the first two batters in the bottom of the third, but Great Bend still managed a run for a 7-4 lead. After a scoreless fourth inning, Basye again recorded two quick outs in the fifth inning. Marc Waite was spared on a foul pop-up error, making Great Bend pay with an infield single. Milton added another single, and Waite came around to score the final run. Milton was the only Eagle with two hits, also adding a walk. Aaron Vainer led all batters with three hits, including a triple, for the VFW.

Awards handed out at EHS banquet Three Ellinwood High seniors received special recognition at the 62nd Annual Spring Sports Banquet. Kale Clawson and Darri Beckwith were awarded Athlete of the Year, and Chelsea Churchill was given the Ronnie Brown Inspiration Award. Clawson had a successful senior campaign, finishing fourth on the state champion cross country team last fall. He also played basketball, and competed at state tennis with doubles partner Kyle Blakeslee. “Kale was an incredibly hard worker with a great attitude,” said Athletic Director Kip Wilson. “He is well-deserving of this award and his role in the successes of his teams goes far beyond measurable statistics or wins and losses.” Beckwith also won a state title with the tennis team in the fall, later earning AllMCAA honors in basketball and softball her senior year. “Darri’s accolades are a testament to her outstanding athletic career,” said Wilson. “Becoming a state champion and two-sport All-League selection in her senior year is a very special accomplishment that few athletes are able to achieve.”

Eagles just miss win in opener By Mike Courson The Eagles Babe Ruth team was just a few minutes from winning its first game of the year last Thursday against Hoisington. Literally. With a twohour time limit imposed on game one, Ellinwood held an 8-3 lead with just a handful of ticks left. The teams went ahead and played the final inning. Hoisington plated six runs in the seventh to steal the 9-8 win. They completed the sweep in game two, needing three innings to win 13-1. “Our first time out, we were pleased with our performance,” said Coach Mel Waite. “The team is, as a group, pretty young. We have a lot of learning to do. We’re working on increasing our pitching rotation right now so we can go deeper. We have a great group of young men working, and I expect them to improve as the season goes on.” The Eagles fell behind 1-0 after one inning in game one, but bounced back in the second frame. Jacob Milton was the first of four players to walk in the inning, eventually coming around to score on a Nathan Monday walk. Ellinwood again took advantage of the strike zone in the third inning. Tate Fisher walked to lead things off. Two outs later, he was still on second base when Tyson Martinez reached on an error. Zak Pflughoeft, Kylin Phelps, and Monday each walked to score Fisher and Martinez. Marc Waite pitched the complete game for Ellinwood, and helped himself out with an RBI-double in the fourth inning. That run gave the Eagles a 4-3 lead, and Waite would come around to score with singles from Martinez and Pflughoeft. Clark Besthorn singled and scored in the fifth inning, and Fisher walked and scored for the third time to give the Eagles a 7-3 lead. Pflughoeft walked to lead off the sixth inning, stealing second, then coming around to score on a Phelps

double for the final run. After giving up three runs in the first three innings on the mound, Waite settled in to retire nine of the next 11 batters. He had thrown just 54 pitches heading into the final inning before Hoisington used five hits to score the six runs. In their final at-bat, the Eagles went down in order. Waite led the way at the plate with two doubles. Besthorn added two singles. Phelps doubled and walked twice, Monday walked twice, and Fisher walked three times, leading the team with three runs.

By Todd Moore BCC Sports Information Barton Community College ’s fourthannual Wounded Warrior Golf Scramble, which benefits wounded soldiers from Fort Riley, is set for Saturday, June 30.

Hoisington 13, Ellinwood 1 The Eagles fell behind early in the nightcap. Hoisington sent eight batters to the plate in the first inning, plating five of those runners. Ellinwood fell behind 10-0 in the next Hoisington at-bat, and trailed 13-0 before scoring the lone run in the bottom of the third. Eric Donovan led things off with a walk in that inning, moving to third on walks to Fisher and Waite. Jacob Milton delivered an RBI-single to score Donovan. Martinez got the start for the Eagles, and Milton also pitched in the loss.
