Messiah Lutheran Church

Provided by Lyon County Historical Society The night David VanGundy returned home from West Port in 1856, an attack began on his community near the junction of the Neosho and Cottonwood Rivers. The attackers moved through the river valley stopping at each house to threaten the settlers that the attackers believed to be pro-slavery supporters. When they arrived at the Christian Carver cabin, Carver, having no weapon, did not want to go out to confront the attackers. He could see through an opening in the logs of the cabin that a large group of men was gathered in the moonlight outside the house. As the attackers began breaking down the door, one man stuck his rifle through the chinks in the logs and fired, hitting Sarah VanGundy Carver who was sitting on the bed nearby. She immediately screamed, “I am shot! I am killed!” Unfazed, the men broke down the door and entered to begin taunting Carver. One even aimed his gun at Carver, but another said, “Leave him be. We will be back in three days, and if he is not out of this country, we will hang him.” They then left the Carver cabin, and, skipping the VanGundy cabin, traveled on through the valley threatening every cabin they came to. At the doctor’s house, they told him that he needed to treat the wounded woman at the Carver cabin.

Obviously, the abolitionist attackers who moved through the Upper Neosho valley community in 1856 near what is now Neosho Rapids were familiar with the neighborhood. In fact, some of the people who were threatened recognized the sons of T.J. Addis, the abolitionist minister who had lived in the area for a while. Others recognized men who may have been sons of John Brown who at that time was living in Miami County near Osawatomie. Still others said that the leader of the group may have been Captain John C. Cook, a man who later died with John Brown at Harper’s Ferry. The group continued throughout the valley threatening each cabin. At one cabin an old man was sick in bed. John Rosenquist, unbeknownst to the robbers, was there in an adjoining cabin as he had been helping the old man dig a well. After the attackers decided to leave the old man alone, they left but later came back to steal horses and saddles. Meanwhile, John Rosenquist and the old man’s son headed to the Junction to warn people there. After not going far, they suddenly met the whole gang as they were returning to the old man’s house. The two young men dropped down in the tall grass while the attackers passed by just 7 or 8 feet from them.

NEWMAN REGIONAL HEALTH’S DAISY AWARD PRESENTED TO AN EXTRAORDINARY NURSE Cheryl Ball, RN of Newman Regional Health’s Women’s Life Center was recently honored with The DAISY Award® For Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's programs to recognize the super-human efforts nurses perform every day. Two nominations were submitted for Cheryl. The nominations spoke about Cheryl’s compassion, leadership, and inspiration. One nomination stated, “Cheryl's compassion and leadership stood out to me. My infant daughter was readmitted to the hospital after we had been sent home. Like many parents of newborns, I was second guessing myself and worried for my daughter. Cheryl reassured what I was doing as a parent was right and it was not my fault she was readmitted. She calmed my fears and tears and helped us through the night.” The other nomination stood out by connecting

an inspiration that Cheryl passed on while performing her care, “Two years ago on the Fourth of July, I went into labor. Although I had a very smooth labor physically and medically, it was very hard emotionally. My mother accompanied me and stayed with me throughout my entire labor, but I couldn’t help but feel so unbelievably alone. Cheryl demonstrated tough love at the beginning. She knew I was strong. Once my feelings started to take over, Cheryl became my best friend that entire night. She was loyally by my side every second. She held my hand, hugged me, wiped my tears, stroked my hair, and talked me through one of the hardest and most painful moments in my life. I know I couldn’t have done it without her. Cheryl inspired me to become a nurse myself. Because of her, I will be graduating as Please see Newmnas, Page 9

High school students are undoubtedly familiar with the belief that extracurricular activities can help separate applicants when seeking admissions to competitive colleges and universities. But research has long indicated that extracurriculars are more than mere résumé-padding activities. A 2019 study published in The Excellence in Education Journal found that students who participated in extracurricular activities earned a significantly higher grade point average than those who did not engage in such activities. The value of that participation has been evi-

dent for decades, as the National Center for Education Statistics notes that a 1992 study found that more than 30 percent of students who participated in extracurricular activities had a GPA of 3.0 or higher, while just under 11 percent of non-participants performed that well academically. The potential impact that extracurriculars can have on students’ academic performance underscores just how valuable such activities can be and how much students should consider getting more involved at school as their academic careers unfold.

ESU THEATRE PRESENTS DARK COMEDY ‘GOD OF CARNAGE’ Emporia State University Theatre presents Yasmina Reza’s dark comedy “God of Carnage” translated by Christopher Hampton for four performances Dec. 1 through 4 in the Ronald Q. Frederickson Black Box Theatre in Roosevelt Hall. Performances are Dec. 1, 2 and 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 4 at 2 p.m. A playground altercation between 1-year-old boys brings two sets of Brooklyn parents together for a meeting to resolve the conflict. The veneer of diplomacy evaporates, cocktails flow and the gloves come off. Called “a comedy of manners minus the manners,” “God of Carnage” won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play. This gritty one-act deals with mature themes and is not for children. “From the moment I saw the Ronald Q. Frederickson Theatre during

my job interview in 2019, I have been wanting to direct a show in that black-box space,” said Jim Harris, the production’s director. “I am very excited to have that opportunity with ‘God of Carnage.’ Having the audience so close to the actors creates an intimate atmosphere and connection that cannot be matched in a large space. This show is perfectly suited for such a venue and the audience will feel that dynamic. “Dark comedy is also one of my favorite genres. I love that feeling of laughing at something, only to think to myself that I really shouldn’t be laughing at all,” Harris added. Visit emporia.edu/tickets for reservations or additional information or call the box office at (620) 3415256 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays with any questions. The show runs approximately 90 minutes

with no intermission. Tickets are also available at the Frederickson Theatre box office one hour before the show. The ensemble cast is comprised of Eddie Lee (Phoenix, Arizona), Kara Mitchell (Neodesha), Rachel Shaffer (Iola) and Lewis Trotter (Abilene). The faculty production team includes Jim Harris (Director), Nic Wilson (Costume Design), Pete Rydberg (Producer), and Amanda Dura (Costume Shop Manager & Makeup Design). The student production team includes Stage Manager Ashley Hill (Olathe), Technical Director/Scene Shop Manager and Lighting Designer Mason Nicks (Leavenworth), Abby Tyler (Lawrence), Scenic Designer Mike Cooprider (Hutchinson), and Props Coordinator Nicholas Thomas (Emporia).

SCIENCE OF WOODS By Corinne Patterson,

Lyon County Extension Office

4-Hers gain hands-on experience at Tallgrass Custom Woods The world of woods is vast and beautiful – at least that is what two Lyon County 4-Hers had the unique opportunity to discover on their visit to a local sawmill, Tallgrass Custom Woods. Rhylee Venters of Reading 4-H Club and Adrian Garcia of Chamness 4-H Club had the opportunity to see silver oak, red oak, walnut, coffee tree, hedge, ash, cedar, sycamore, and many others, opening their eyes to many possibilities in the 4-H wood science project. Venters and Garcia received a special award from Kevin and Kay Church for their 4-H woods projects

at the 2022 Lyon County Fair and recently reaped the benefits of recognition for their project work. The Church’s provided a personal wood working lesson and tour of their mill to Venters and Garcia in hopes of inspiring the 4-Hers to continue their learning in the woods project. “My favorite part was learning about all of the different woods that they had,” Venters shared. “My favorite specie was silver oak because I really like the color and the spalting. We learned spalting is a form of wood markings caused by fungi that are fighting each other for the sugar in the wood.” Garcia also enjoyed learning about spalting and the many other stories trees can tell. He said

he particularly enjoyed hearing stories about all the interesting items the Churches have found hidden inside the trees like nails, wire and even bullets that date back to the civil war era. Each 4-Her spent their own time at the Churches, giving them that one-on-

one mentoring adult relationship that 4-H works to provide to ensure youth can explore their spark. “We got to go outside and cut a walnut log after putting on safety glasses and headphones,” VenPlease see Wood, Page 11

Join us in Arvonia, Kansas for our Christmas Candlelight Service on Sunday, December 4th at 5 p.m. in the Calvinistic Methodist Church. Arvonia is a historic community located 4 miles north of Lebo, just west of Hoch Road on West 325th St. Established as a Welsh community in 1869, the Arvonia Historic Preservation Society has been working since 2011 to restore these

buildings while preserving the heritage of this Welsh community. Pastor Evan Ash, from Olathe, Kansas will conduct the service. He is a retired Episcopal pastor with expansive knowledge of Welsh traditions. This is certainly an experience you will not want to miss. New this year will be special music by Liza Lizarraga, Cellist. We hope you can join us as

we kick off the Christmas season with a service to honor the birth of our Savior. The acoustics in the church are amazing and will definitely put you in the Christmas spirit. A reception will follow the service in the Arvonia Township Hall. We hope our new Christmas lights will be lighting up the village—weather permitting.


bers in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon autoimmune disease. The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families. To view all of Newman Regional Health’s DAISY Award nominees, visit https://www.newmanrh. org/daisy-awards/. For a complete listing of healthcare organizations currently running the program, please go to http://DAISY-

In addition to the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, the Foundation expresses gratitude to the nursing profession internationally in over 5,000 healthcare facilities and schools of nursing with recognition of Nurse-led Teams, Nurse Leaders, Nurses Advancing Health Equity, Nursing Faculty, Nursing Students, Lifetime Achievement in Nursing and through the J. Patrick Barnes Grants for Nursing Research and EvidenceBased Practice Projects, Medical Mission Grants and their new Health Equity Grant programs.

ters shared. “Mr. Church showed me how their log cutter works. I learned that the blade has 125 teeth. After they cut slices of the log

off, it was my job to clean off all the saw dust from each piece. It was cool to see the inside of the tree because it had fun markings. Some of the pieces in the shop even had tunnels from beetles.” Garcia says the Churches couldn’t have been more giving of their time, and the wood they sent him home with will certainly spark the beginnings of another woodworking project. He’s already prepared a talk to share with his 4-H club about his experience. It’s incredibly special to have amazing volunteers who give their time and support to youth in our community. Hands-on learning is one of the most valuable gifts we can give to the next generation, and Kevin and Kay Church are greatly appreciated for their support of Lyon County 4-H. “Mr. and Mrs. Church are letting me come back to pick out the wood that I like for my next woodworking project once I figure out what I’m making. I really enjoyed my time there and meeting them,” Venters said, adding, “I hope I can go back soon!”
