Lyon County 4-H Shooting Sports Participants Heading to Nationals!

While mayor, Oliver T. Atherton’s term was marked by material progress. A new flow line was built from the reservoir to Emporia, a subway under the Santa Fe tracks at Mechanic Street was constructed, a storm sewer was built to serve the business district drainage, Soden’s Grove beautification was begun, and Peter Pan Park was gifted to the city as was Hammond Park in north Emporia. During his term as mayor almost five miles of streets were paved and almost four miles were graveled. He was survived by three children, one of them, John Atherton, is still living as of 2020. Grandson Steve Atherton is still in law practice in Emporia, so the Atherton name remains in Emporia history. Wouldn’t you like to play Wahoo at the movies? That’s what they called it at the Strand Theatre in Emporia back in the early ‘40s. Everyone had a card, a little like Bingo, and every so often the movie would be stopped, the game played, and someone would win a gift. The women loved to receive plates or cups as their gift. It usually cost 10 cents to go to the movie at the Lyric Theatre and 5 cents for popcorn. If your dad gave you a quarter every two weeks for allowance, you could go to the theatre twice and have one bag of popcorn!

Admire is the only town in the county that will have a big celebration this year. - It would look a great deal more honest and gentlemanly if a man would buy his shoes in the day time, instead of trying to sneak them out through a window after dark. If this trick is repeated, the party referred to will either have the honor of being the first man buried in the new grave yard, or be put where things won’t stick to his fingers. - A fine shower Tuesday night, and the wind that came with it was out of sight. So was this editor—in a neighbor’s cellar. - This year is predicted to be the most memorable of the century for its natural disasters, awful catastrophes and wholesale crime, foretold by the

unfortunate conjunction of the planets Saturn and Herschel. (?? In 1781 Wm. Herschel was the first to recognize Uranus as the 7th planet, not a star as was previously thought. It was never named for him.) - In Reading, Pa., Civil War veteran Henry Rittenhouse committed suicide at his home. He had been melancholy for some time because the military refused to increase his pension of $6 a month. - Boxing Champion of the Navy Tom Sharkey has defeated Champion of the World Jim Corbett. Sharkey pursued his usual tactics of rushing and striking wildly without judgement. He even refused to stop fighting at the end of the bout, and made a vicious rush at Corbett. Six policemen leaped into the ring, and three officers grabbed Sharkey, who gave one of them a vicious blow. More policemen jumped into the ring, and

Sharkey was escorted to his corner. Corbett later said he was fouled twice, and refused to accept the referee’s decision that the contest was a draw. - In County Limerick, Ireland, the Countess of Dunraven sings in the village choir. - Boiled beef pervades Russian cookery under many disguises. In St. Petersburg it is possible to get boiled beef by ordering mutton chops, and the head waiter will provide a seasoning of argument. It masquerades most frequently under the name of cutlets, or bitki, with a prefix of a dashing name, preferably that of a slashing military man. Pozharsky cutlets, Skobeleff cutlets, Dolgoruky cutlets, and that whole race may be safely avoided. - Tommy: “Paw, what is a limited company?” Paw: “Two is the limit, three’s a crowd.”

for the future of mental health service delivery within our communities. Moving forward, this contribution will be directly used in the renovation of two identified buildings in Emporia, providing a valuable launching pad for the introduction of expanded treatment offerings throughout the agency’s seven-county coverage area. Upon completion in 2024, the 38,000 sq.ft. campus will focus on addressing critical issues including the suicide crisis, overdose deaths, and inadequate care for veteran, senior, and non-English speaking populations. In addition to funding these initiatives, a $75,000 portion of the grant will be put towards the immediate aid of CrossWinds’ children’s programs, sup-

porting daytime, afterschool, summer, and Positive Alternatives for Student Success (PASS) offerings in Lyon, Coffey, and Osage counties. “CrossWinds is incredibly grateful for this gift from the Jones Testamentary Trust ,” said CrossWinds Counseling & Wellness CEO Amanda Cunningham. “This generous award is a true testament to the need for quality mental and behavioral health services and shows a belief in our mission of service. We are excited to expand our offices and provide improved experiences for our consumers not only in Lyon County, but throughout our coverage area. Our partnership with the Jones Testamentary Trust has been truly amazing and

their gift will be instrumental to the ongoing success of our capital campaign.” About CrossWinds Counseling & Wellness:Founded in 1960, CrossWinds is a nonprofit community mental health center licensed by the State of Kansas.

Newman Regional Health Volunteers Earn 14th Gold Award This spring, Newman Regional Health Volunteers hosted District 1 attendees from seven other hospitals in our area at the Anderson Building on April 12, 2022. Each spring, Hospital Volunteers of Kansas hold district meetings throughout the state where volunteers from each of the districts’ hospitals meet to share ideas, hear speakers, get updates, and receive the latest information to benefit each volunteer organization. Gold, S ilver, and Bronze Awards are presented to those hospital volunteer organizations who meet the exacting standards set by Hospital Volunteers of Kansas. Newman Regional Health Volunteers were among those receiving the Gold

award for our 14th year in a row, with an award of Silver or Gold level going back to 1990. Newman Regional Health Volunteers are active in raising money for scholarships to grant to area students in healthrelated fields through our Snack Bar and Gift Shoppe as well as through fundraisers. Money is also raised to provide for various hospital needs, such as the Staxi transportation chairs that were recently purchased to replace wheelchairs. Volunteers assist at different stations throughout the hospital where they aid visitors and staff. In recognition for their work, volunteers are honored each spring at an Appreciation Luncheon, sponsored by the

hospital. This spring ’s luncheon was held at the Bowyer Building on April 19, 2022. During the meeting, volunteers were recognized for their years of service to the hospital. Bob Wright, CEO, offered his appreciation for all that volunteers do. Deborah Storrer, Volunteer Coordinator, who organized the luncheon, gave thanks for each volunteer and all that they do each day to help Newman Regional Health. New volunteers are always welcome. If interested in volunteering, contact Deborah Storrer at Newman Regional Health (620) 343-6800 Ext. 22525. Applications are also located online at www.newmanrh.org/ volunteer.

An upcoming Prairie Talk will tell the story of a Flint Hills family that began in 1897 at the Emporia Stock Yards. Then a brass band will perform patriotic music on the lawn – classic family fun reminiscent of another era. Two community events in one day at Pioneer Bluffs, a historic ranch near Matfield Green. At 3:00 p.m. Saturday, July 9, Jeanne Hatcher shares the history of six generations of the Hatcher family. From Emporia to Chase County, the Fox Creek Ranch grew. Today the children and grandchildren of Jeanne and Bill Hatcher have joined the family cattle business; they are all neighbors of Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The Prairie Talk will be in the loft of the 1915 barn at Pioneer Bluffs . Then at 6:30 p.m. on July 9, the Butler County Brass returns to Pioneer Bluffs by popular demand for an outdoor concert. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be moved to the loft of the barn.

The six musicians of the Butler County Brass are music educators who love what they do and enjoy sharing their talent. They are Robert Gusé, Christine Moose, Rick Moose, Eric Pretz, John Templin, and Josephine Trout. Visitors are invited to explore the grounds, bring a picnic, or hike the new nature trail. Wading shoes may be recommended to access the trail, depending on recent rains. Beverages and snacks will be available. Reservations are requested but not required and will help ensure plenty of chairs are out. RSVP on

the Facebook event page or to Executive Director, Lynn Smith, at lynn@ pioneerbluffs.org or 620753-3484. Donations are appreciated and will support future program events. Pioneer Bluffs, the Center for Flint Hills Ranching Heritage, is a nonprofit organization with a mission to preserve and share the ranching heritage of the Flint Hills. A National Register Historic District, Pioneer Bluffs is located 14 miles south of Cottonwood Falls or 1 mile north of Matfield Green on Flint Hills National Scenic Byway K-177.

AUCTION BLOCK LAND AUCTION! July 7th, 2022 at 6:30 P.M. Admire Community Bldg., Admire, KS

On behalf of the Moser and Dunn families, Henry Ott of Vaughn-Roth Land Brokers presents this tract of Native grass with recreational appeal located in Northwestern Lyon County approximately 5 miles northwest of Allen at 728 Road 385. Totaling 201 acres more or less, this parcel offers an attractive mixture of pasture, meadow and recreational acreage. The topography is gently to moderately rolling with in excess of 60’ of elevation change as you move across the property, providing spectacular views of the Flint Hills. The pasture is mainly comprised of good Native grass varieties in limestone based soils which have made the Flint Hills the envy of cattle producers. Water is supplied by two ponds, a developed spring with tank and a creek. Fences rate from adequate to good. There’s a large timbered draw with a creek that is a substantial travel corridor for local Whitetails as witnessed by the large amount of sign in this portion and there’s multiple good locations to add adjacent foodplots if desired. There’s electrical service near the southern boundary that would make an ideal location for a small cabin for those looking for a weekend retreat. This would make a good addition for either the stocker or cow/calf operator or someone looking for a recreational getaway farm from the noise of the City. Come prepared to buy! For complete details, please contact Henry Ott at 620-437-7340 or visit our website at VaughnRoth.com.

Roll call was taken and answered by 20 members. Darren Heins gave a Parliamentarian Tip and Cordon Olson gave the Treasurer’s Report. Club Leader, Amber Redeker, discussed several items with the club (Blue Ribbon entries deadline is July 1st, Summer Learning Opportunities will be available, so watch emails,

and Fair Shirt order information.) Lana Ritchie announced there would be a short goat meeting after the regular meeting. Jessica Burenheide and Charles Steffes shared the details with the club about our 4-H Float and 4-H Tour. Reagan Scheve then led us in singing the “Hokey Pokey”. Braylie and Isaiah Burnheide gave project talks over their goats. Caroline Traffenstedt talked about her beef project she is in this year. Her sister, Clara, then talked to us all about her pigs she is taking to the fair. We then celebrated the June birthdays. Our next meeting will be at the Club 4-H Tour in July.

READING 4-H CLUB By Hunter Senft Club Reporter

The Reading 4-H Club met on June 8 th at the Miracle Cafe at 6:45pm. Parents led the meeting as it was parents night. Project talks were given by Hunter Senft on How to keep your rabbits cool and dry in the summer months. Crue Jackson talked about wiring his new room and all that goes into electrical. Sounds like a lot off

work if you ask me! The Club was reminded about a project meeting held at the Emporia Zoo in Emporia at 3 pm for photography and plant science. Kids, don’t forget your cameras. July 1st is the fair entry deadline and remember it’s blue ribbon and not 4-H online like how we enroll. The senft family brought refreshments. The next meeting is July 13 th at the cafe at 6:45pm.

Newman Regional Health announced that tickets for the 13th Annual Denim & Diamonds benefit event are now available for purchase and invite the community to attend. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, August 5, at Emporia State University’s Memorial Union Webb Hall. Doors will open at 6:00pm. Tickets can be purchased online directly from the event’s mobile bidding site at www.2022dd.givesmart. com. Available ticket options include individual seats for $65 and tables of eight for $450. Proceeds from this year’s Denim & Diamonds are designated to the purchase of a Carm, an advanced medical imaging device that combines the use of

x-ray and fluoroscopy to provide real-time, high-resolution images that aid healthcare professionals in diagnostic procedures. Surgeons also use a C -arm to monitor the progress of a procedure and make decisions based on highquality imaging and information. A variety of Newman Regional Health services will benefit from the purchase of this upgraded equipment including cardiology, general surgery, and orthopedics. For more information on the 2022 Denim & Diamonds event or for help purchasing tickets, visit www.2022dd.givesmart. com or call (620) 3417781. To make a donation to this year’s fundraising campaign, donors can text ‘Give100’ to 76278.

HARTFORD VETERAN’S BANNER PROJECT The City of Hartford is proud to offer you the opportunity to honor a veteran or someone currently active in the military. For $75, you may purchase a banner with your chosen military member on it. The banners will then be hung on brackets in Hartford for approximately one month in conjunction with Veterans Day (November 11) for up to five consecutive

years. After the five year run, the banner will then belong to you and you will be given the opportunity to purchase a new one if you wish. Applications are available at Hartford City Hall. A digital image, a copy of a DD214 and payment along with the order form will need to be turned in to Hartford City Hall no later than Friday, July 1.
