Specializing in Irrigation Design & Service

Ag Systems, Inc. 810 E. 14th and U.S. 56, Larned, was purchased by the Schoonover brothers in 1983. Don Schoonover and Kent Schoonover have worked in irrigation design and service since 1977. The service department of five, factory-trained technicians has more than 100 years of combined experience. They service and stock parts for all brand pivots covering an area from Dodge City to Great Bend and Hays to Pratt. Valley Center Pivots are celebrating 50 plus years of service and are committing all their future years in conserving water with the newest innovations in sprinkler packages and computerized panels. To better serve their customers, Valley Center Pivot Dealer, Ag Systems, Inc. of Larned, is now providing insurance services for all brands of irrigation equipment. Don Schoonover and Debora Fox-Johnson are licensed by the state of Kansas to write policies and adjust claims through Diversified Agrisurance. Diversified Agrisurance has been in business more than 30 years and is the largest single insurer of irrigation equipment. You can get replacement cost coverage on all pivots up to 34 years of age and limited coverage on pivots over 35 years of age. Many policies only cover the depreciated value of a pivot; however,

this plan will insure complete replacement, up to the value insured, if the need arises. This is a multi-risk plan, which covers damage from wind, tornado, hail, fire, lightning, and theft. Added coverage that most other companies do not insure for include, vandalism, flood, rodent damage, and collision with farm implements. Diversified Agrisurance also has a very unique feature available, the mechanical and electrical endorsement. This endorsement will pay for sudden and/or accidental structural loss or damage caused by or resulting from a mechanical or electrical failure. Some companies only cover the part that caused the damage, but not the resulting damage. Competitive rates with deductible as low as $500 per occurrence (not per pivot) are available. Feel free to stop in or call Ag Systems, Inc. 620-285-2111. If you are an Agrisurance policyholder, all you need to do is fill out and sign a form to transfer your policy to Ag Systems, Inc. Services at Ag Systems include a well stocked parts department carrying MC Crometer flow meters, galvanized chemical check valves, Ag Sense monitors, and monthly specials. Ag Systems is committed to offering the best Service, Parts and Design for years to come for all your irrigation needs.

PAWNEE COUNTY

SOURCE PAWNEE COUNTY HISTORY

T

he land recognized as Pawnee County was a high-traffic area long before its boundaries were officially plotted and a permanent settlement began in 1872. The buffalo and Indians roamed freely for centuries before the white soldiers arrived in 1859 to establish a military post at Fort Larned to assist in commerce and travel along the Santa Fe Trail. George Custer, Kit Carson, William Cody, Black Kettle, Satanta, and Yellow Bear were but a few of the legendary people frequenting the fort. The establishment of Fort Larned in 1859 on the Santa Fe Trail was significant not only for defense of the trail, but also to assist settlers in the area. The Hancock-Custer expedition, referring to General Winfield S. Hancock and Colonel George Custer, arrived at Fort Larned on April 7, 1867, and the two men conducted meetings with Cheyenne Chiefs Tall Bull and White Horse in an attempt to satisfy Indian displeasure at white settlers. The meeting delayed problems along the Santa Fe Trail. It was Henry Booth (1838-1898), retired captain of Company L, 11th Kansas Calvary, who petitioned the state for official organization of the county in 1872, naming it after the familiar Pawnee River as well as recognizing the Pawnee Indians who inhabited the area historically. Booth served in the Kansas Legislature, serving as the Legislature’s Speaker of the House. The organization of Pawnee County is colorful. A colonizer from Chicago, Dr. Samuel Grant Rodgers, had arrived in the Pawnee County area and he and his associates had laid out a town, naming it Petersburg in honor of an official of the Santa Fe Railroad, T.J. Peters. Today it is called Kinsley.

Realizing that Petersburg was a threat to Larned, as both towns were within the original boundaries of Pawnee County, Booth and other Larned promoters moved at once toward organization of the county. A law passed that same year by the Legislature prescribing that a petition asking for organization of a new county was to be signed by “40 householders who were legal electors of the county.” There were not 40 legal electors in Pawnee County, but Booth and A.H. Boyd secured the signatures by an extra-legal procedure. One report said they stopped an immigrant train that was toiling westward along the Santa Fe Trail and forced the men in the party to sign their petition. Booth forwarded the petition to Gov. James M. Harvey recommending F.C. Hawkins as a good man to take the census.

PAWNEE COUNTY

PAWNEE COUNTY HISTORY SOURCE

Governor Harvey accepted Booth’s recommendation and appointed Hawkins. Nine days later Hawkins finished his enumeration and filed his certified report with the governor. It showed a population of 674 men, women and children, an amazing figure in view of the difficulty Captain Booth had experienced in finding 40 legal electors to sign his petition. Dr. Rodgers was in Chicago recruiting settlers for his colony while Booth and his associates were taking the preliminary steps toward county organization. It is assumed that Dr. Rodgers went to Topeka and that he registered a protest with the governor and secretary of state, but they must have convinced him that nothing could or should be done to delay the organization of Pawnee County. Gov. James M. Harvey’s proclamation admitting Pawnee as the 65th county was dated November 4, 1872 by Henry Booth, A.H. Boyd, Timothy McCarthy, and George J. Cox. Larned became the permanent county seat of Pawnee County in an election held on October 7, 1873. Dr. Rodgers and Booth were opposing candidates for state representative. Rodgers won the seat, but Booth, although denied membership in the Legislature, had considerable influence in that body. The boundaries of Pawnee County were changed, cutting 12 miles off the south, which left out Dr. Rodgers’ town, Petersburg, and adding six miles on the north, taken from Rush County and six miles on the east, taken from Stafford County. This, Booth observed, “brought Larned nearer the center of the county and strengthened it as the county seat.” It also cut off Petersburg and practically every other town in the county. When in 1874, a petition was presented to the Legislature asking that the original boundaries of Pawnee County be restored, the Legislature again came to the rescue of Booth and his county seat by returning one township to Pawnee – the one containing Garfield – and creating Edwards County from the “orphan townships.” Interesting sites in the county include the nine original buildings at Fort Larned, the Pawnee County Courthouse (former), the Eagle Optic Building, the Masonic Building, the Campbell House (1886) and the Patterson House (circa 1876). The Larned Presbyterian Church was organized on July 15, 1873. The first county fair was held in 1876. Currently it is a 4-H fair. The first school district was Pawnee Number 1, formed in Larned on June 24, 1873. Pawnee County’s most recognized citizen is Clyde W. Tombaugh (19061997), who discovered the planet Pluto in February 1930. Tombaugh graduated from Burdett High School in 1925. He discovered Pluto while working at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz. Other notable Pawnee County natives include Hall of Fame coach Gene Keady, former Purdue basketball coach; Ralph Terry, former New York Yankees pitcher; Gary Patterson, Texas Christian University head football coach; John Zook, All-Pro NFL player and All Big 8 player at the University of Kansas; Mitch Webster, major league baseball outfielder; Hal Patterson, Canadian football player; and Belle Jennings Benchley, former director of the San Diego Zoo. Pawnee County currently includes the cities of Garfield, Burdett, Rozel and Larned.

LARNED CORRECTIONAL MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY

I

n 2017, the Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility (LCMHF) will mark 25 years serving as a Kansas Department of Corrections facility mandated to meet the long-term needs of mentally ill inmates. Construction of the 150-bed facility began on the grounds of the Larned State Hospital (LSH) in 1991 and the facility was dedicated in December of that same year. The facility received its first inmates on January 22, 1992. The LCMHF is the only correctional facility within the Kansas Department of Corrections whose main function is to provide services to male maximum custody inmates with major mental illnesses. It houses the most severely and persistently mentally ill adult male inmates within the KDOC, along with a significant number of inmates with borderline personality disorders or a conduct disorder which makes them an unacceptable risk for housing in another facility. LCMHF consists of a maximum-security central unit with 150 beds and a minimumsecurity West Unit with 288 work detail beds. The facility’s Central Unit serves as a transitional unit for inmates who are not

able to function in the general population of a traditional correctional institution for mental health reasons, but are not in need of psychiatric hospitalization. Inmates are assigned to this facility by mental health staff at other correctional institutions. In addition, 115 beds are reserved for KDOC offenders housed in the Isaac Ray Building on the Larned State Hospital campus. There, inmates are provided mental health care and treatment in either the acute care or the residential rehabilitation program (RRP). The purpose of RRP is to provide psychiatric rehabilitation and vocational services to adult males referred from the KDOC with the intent of preparing these individuals for successful reintegration into the community or back into KDOC services as determined on an individual basis. The West Unit provides support and community work programs for minimum-custody inmates. The West Unit also houses inmates who are admitted to the Chemical Dependency Recovery Program (CDRP) or they can apply for jobs at work release or Non-Prison Based Industry employers in the community.

An A education d i program provides both remedial education and GED preparation to the maximum and minimum populations.

As A with i h other h ffacilities ili i under d the management of the Secretary of Corrections, medical services, health services, library services, chaplaincy services and re-entry services are available.

TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION WITH LEGISLATORS You feel strongly about an issue, and want to make sure your elected officials know how you feel. Where to start? Here are some tips for getting your message heard. Write a letter 1. Make it brief, no more than two pages. 2. Limit yourself to one topic. Be sure to state your reasons for support or opposition to a bill. Personalize the issue if you can. 3. Include a return address and ask your legislator to send a return letter explaining their position on the issue. Visit face to face 1. Probably the most effective means of communicating your like or dislike of an issue is face to face. Attend a town hall meeting and stick around afterwards for the best chance to catch your senator or representative. If that’s not possible, you can request an audience. 2. Elected officials’ websites usually include instructions on how to schedule a visit. 3. Offer the following information when scheduling: Requested dates, number attending, the location and duration of the meeting, the subject and details of the meeting. On the day of the meeting, provide point-of-contact

information, including your name, phone number, address, organization/affiliation (if applicable), and email address. Send an email 1. Email is not the best communication tool. 2. Identify yourself as a constituent, and back it up with your name, street address, city, state and zip code. You are competing with thousands of emails a week. 3. Address only one issue. Clearly state what you are asking your elected official to do. 4. Ask for a response. Make a phone call 1. You will likely be speaking to a staff member, but don’t fret — they will make sure your elected official is informed of your opinion. When calling, ask to speak with the aide who handles the issue you are concerned with. 2. Identify yourself as a constituent. A zip code will help verify this. 3. Once you have done this, be sure to ask to leave a message letting the elected official know why you support or oppose the bill in question. You may ask that the legislator respond to your phone call in writing, and ask that they respond with their position on the bill.

THE NAME OF THE GAME

D

uring the summer of 2016, the Pawnee County Humane Society (PCHS) rescued it’s 2,000th animal. Opened in 2005, it is a no kill facility and chooses to be innovative and up-to-date in the way they treat the animals they care for. They offer low-cost micro-chipping for a fee of $10 per animal. They also oversee a program where dogs are trained at Larned State Hospital by Department of Corrections’ inmates, which benefits both the animals and the prisoners. Dogs in the DOC program are with the handler 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Dogs aged nine months to 10 years old can enter the program where any behavior that keeps them from being adopted is dealt with. They are taught basic commands, social skills and interaction with other dogs. “It’s a really awesome thing,” said Reva Preeo, president of PCHS. PCHS is an integral part of resolving the nationwide problem with feral cats with a Feral Cat Trap Neuter Return program. Feral cats are trapped by volunteers, sterilized and then released. Feral cats are neither tame nor are they house pets. Preeo said the program works very well when they have volunteers able to trap. “You can see a difference when it’s done,” she said. “It’s very much needed.” These cats reproduce at astounding rates. One male and one female cat and their offspring can theoretically produce 420,000 kittens in six years. Dogs are spayed or neutered and micro-chipped before they are adopted. The shelter takes animals possessing the proper disposition to nursing homes in the Larned area as a pet therapy outreach. Stafford High School’s Training to Lead program also adopts dogs from the shelter to go through the program in which high school students foster abandoned or unwanted dogs during the school year as they work with instructor Mike Cargill to train them into service dogs. At the end of summer, on the last

day that the Larned City Pool is open, the Pawnee County Humane Society sponsors the annuall dog swim at the pool. It’s a fun fu day when owners and their dogs can r rained and enjoy the pool before it is drained cleaned. Each year, PCHS acceptss pictures nttest. One for the annual calendar contest. picture will be chosen for the h cover he shot, while 12 others will bee selected as “Pet of the Month.” Votess are then re featured accepted, and the winners ar are in the calendar. s In addition, patrons can show ngg T-shirts, support for PCHS by buying m mblazoned sweatshirts or hoodies, all emblazoned with PCHS. Don’t forget thee o which ok, “Pawsitively Tasty” cookbook, has 350 recipes submitted byy Pawnee httened by County residents and brightened ice Skelton. the illustrations of Mary Alice m mane The Pawnee County Humane e 25 dogs ely Society houses approximately and 35 cats each day. For thee animal ption i fees f lover who wants a pet, adoption are: dogs, neutered /spayed, $100; cats, ees vary for neutered/spayed, $10; and fees unaltered animals. Animals are also micro-chipped and current on their vaccinations. Surrender fees are $20 per animal, or, if surrendering a litter, add an additional $5 per animal. PCHS thrives with its volunteer base. Volunteers exercise dogs, clean kennels, feed the animals, act as a receptionist, do laundry, provide clerical help, hold fundraisers, and act as pet companions. In addition, DOC minimum security inmates work at the facility Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. caring for the animals and providing help cleaning, mowing and other tasks around the shelter. Dr. Christina Frick, DVM, Frick Veterinary Services, Dr. Kristy Mull, DVM and Dr. Mike Burdett, DVM, Larned Veterinary Clinic, help care for the animals. From July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016, the shelter took in 309 animals. Of these, 190 were adopted, five were transferred to breed specific rescues, and 94 lost dogs and cats were returned to their owners.

Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Exceeding Expectations PVMA ANNOUNCES NEW CLINICIAN Pawnee Valley Community Hospital is pleased to announce that Dr. M. Crystal Hill and Bonnie Landgraf, APRN, FNP have joined the staff at Pawnee Valley Medical Associates. Dr. Hill earned her medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Kansas City, KS and Wichita, KS in 2002.

She is excited to begin her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Bonnie is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Call Pawnee Valley Medical Associates at 620-804-6007 to set up an appointment. PAIN INJECTION CLINIC NOW PART OF PVCH SERVICES For patients looking for another treatment option when neither medications nor other remedies are offering relief from back or leg pain, pain injection therapy maybe the treatment option for them. Pawnee Valley Community Hospital offers a monthly Pain Injection Clinic in conjunction with HaysMed’s Pain Clinic. The epidural steroid injections (ESIs) are a common treatment option for many forms of low back pain and leg pain and are an integral part of the non-surgical management of sciatica and low back pain. The goal of the injection is pain relief, and at time the injection alone is sufficient to provide relief, but commonly an epidural steroid injection is used in combination with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to provide additional benefits. While the effects of the injection tend to be temporary, providing relief from pain for one week up to one year or longer can be very beneficial for a patient during an acute episode of back and/or leg pain. Plus an injection can provide enough sufficient pain relief that allows a patient to progress with a rehabilitative stretching and exercise program. If the initial injection is effective for a patient, he or she may have up to three in a one-year period. For more information about PVCH’s Pain Injection Clinic call 785-623-5940 or 785623-5041.

WOUND CARE CLINIC BRINGS SPECIALIZED SERVICES TO LARNED EACH WEEK Patients no longer have any reason to live with an open sore. The Wound Care Clinic at Pawnee Valley Community Hospital offers expanded wound treatment for difficult, complicated or atypical wounds. Likely candidates for treatment are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infection and wounds that haven’t healed within 30 days. The Wound Care Clinic is staffed with a unique team of specialists dedicated to healing chronic wounds. The combined knowledge of our team creates a multidisciplinary approach to wound management. We are dedicated to healing wounds that have not responded to traditional treatment. In cooperation with PVCH, specialists from HaysMed’s Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center are providing wound care services in Larned for patients with these conditions: wounds that are 30 days old or more and not improving; diabetic foot ulcers; leg ulcers; pressure ulcers; bone infection (osteomyelitis); skin tears or lacerations; burns; slow or non-healing surgical wounds. Patients can either be referred by their physician for treatment or if they have had a wound that hasn’t healed within 30 days they can do self-referral. To schedule an appointment, call 620-285-3161. PVCH LAUNCHES AVERA eCARE Pawnee Valley Community Hospital recently announced the addition of Avera eEmergency services in Larned and the surrounding area. PVCH provides emergency services to thousands of patients in the community each year. Open 24/7, the ER is equipped to handle any patient that comes through the door. In more critical cases, however, the old adage “two heads are better than one” can often be true. PVCH’s new eEmergency service provides extra support to PVCH clinicians when needed. At the push of a button, local physicians and ER staff are instantly connected in virtual access to a team of physicians and nurses who specialize in emergency medicine. Through high-definition videoconferencing, local clinicians are able to get support for complex emergency cases, such as heart attack, stroke, respiratory distress or traumatic injury. The eEmergency team can virtually double the number of clinicians in the room for those all-hands-on-deck scenarios. “With really critical cases, we need to do a lot of things at the same time, while also stepping back to assess the big picture of what’s going on with the patient,” said Kendra Barker, PVCH Nursing Services Director. “The eEmergency system can provide support by making transfer arrangements or completing paperwork so we can stay at the patient’s side. Avera’s experienced emergency physician can also help us think through the

case and talk through what the next steps could be.” The eEmergency service is used for things like multi-victim car accidents, quick baby deliveries, snake bites and hypothermia – cases that most emergency rooms see only once every few years. In these kinds of cases, the eEmergency team can help arrange for a transfer, order a helicopter and contact the receiving hospital if needed. This can save precious time in cases where every minute counts. “eEmergency gives us the ability to extend and enhance the level of health care in our community,” said Barker. “It gives us access to the same type of specialists available in larger hospitals, enabling us to deliver better care, right here in our community, and keep patients here whenever possible.” Other communities have reported that transfers to other cities have been reduced because of eEmergency. “In about 25 percent of the cases we see, we can avoid a transfer,” said Jay Weems, Vice President of eCARE Operations. PVCH OFFERS AT HOME SLEEP TESTING Pawnee Valley Community Hospital’s Sleep & Diagnostic Center is now offering At Home Sleep Testing for patients who have a high pre-test probability of moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea without significant comorbidities or other sleep disorders. Home sleep apnea testing provides a board certified sleep medicine physician with the information he or she needs to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. It allows a patient to sleep at home wearing equipment that collects information about how they breathe during sleep. A patient will usually set up the testing equipment themselves. Home sleep apnea testing is used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. A physician may recommend home sleep apnea testing if it is highly likely that the patient has moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea and has no significant medical conditions other than the suspected obstructive sleep apnea. An At Home Sleep Test is not recommended for patients with pulmonary diseases (e.g. COPD), congestive heart failure, cardiovascular disease, neurological disease (e.g. stroke, seizures), sleep disorders besides OSA (e.g. restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy, insomnia), or any mental or physical condition that would prevent the patient from safely or effectively using the equipment. In these cases, the patient’s physician may recommend an in-lab sleep study instead of a home sleep apnea test. An in-lab sleep study provides the most complete evaluation of a patient’s sleep. For more information about At Home Sleep Studies patients are encouraged to visit with their doctors or can contact the Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Sleep & Diagnostic Center at 620-285-8620.

F

ort Larned Superintent Jon Flint is enjoying his silver anniversary, working his 25th year with the district. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a year away from celebrating his chief accomplishment of overseeing a $22.2 million building project. Fort Larned USD 495 voters passed a $22.2 million bond issue by a 2-to-1 margin in 2015 that will construct a new elementary school. The centerpiece is a new prekindergarten through grade 5 school building. The school is being built near East 21st between Toles and Broadway. The projected completion date is June 2017. The land for the elementary school site was donated. The middle school will lose fifth-graders, who will return to an elementary school setting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I enjoyed was the way the bond passed in tough economic times,â&#x20AC;? Flint said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of our community. We had a lot of hard work and support from the community. This is a year where everyone will exhibit patience and flexibility for the inconvenience.â&#x20AC;?

Construction managers and past and present Fort Larned USD 495 school board personnel and the Foundation for Education volunteers performed groundbreaking north of Larned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Foundation for Education made this happen,â&#x20AC;? Flint said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve enjoyed is how well everyone has worked together.â&#x20AC;?

The work is supervised by Bob Simpson of Wichitaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Simpson Construction, which serves as the construction management firm. Wichitaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Howard and Helmer is the architectural firm and Piper Jaffray is the financial advisor. Larned-based Haynes Elecric was awarded the electrical portion of the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simpson Construction meets every two weeks and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a great business partner which has been easy to work with,â&#x20AC;? Flint said. Flint said metal and block layers have been installed and parking lots were scheduled to be installed in August. Interior cinderblock work will pay homage to the Santa Fe Trail history. Sibleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Camp and Pike Camp will be designated between class halls for larger groups. A blockhouse fort style will be featured in the media center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve achieved big benchmarks and continue to be right on schedule,â&#x20AC;? Flint said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The great thing about Simpson Construction is they understand what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to accomplish.â&#x20AC;? At the high school, $5.1 million of improvements and additions will be completed in August 2017. A multipurpose storm shelter and weight room/community fitness center will be built. A $250,000 donation cut the cost for the wellness center, which will be shared with the community. Interior work is on schedule and north parking for seniors has been completed. Parking is being utilized south of the

high school and near the middle school. When school is dismissed in May, 2017, final work will completed for interior renovation for science and chemistry classes. The bond increases property taxes $93 annually for a $75,000 house; $204 annually for a $75,000 business and $72 for 160 acres of dryland crop land. Current structures to be replaced include â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pre-K (3-4 year olds), Hillside and Sacred Heart; kindergarten, Hillside Elementary (1955); first, second grades, Phinney Elementary (1952); and third, fourth grades, Northside Elementary (1965).

SON PAYS TRIBUTE TO HIS FATHER

T

Since Larned High School is currently under construction, to see the statue go to south side of the Larned High School football field and walk to the far northeast side of the field.

he 6-foot-6 bronze Indian statue featuring stunning detail is dedicated to Larned football fans everywhere. One of the plaques at Earl Roberts Field pays tribute to Brandon Bartz’s late father Michael with the inscription — “For the Love of the Game.” Michael Bartz died during the summer of 2013 due to a heart attack just before Brandon played high school football with his brother Jeromy at Larned High School. Their parents, Michael Bartz Michael and Sandi, were Larned High sweethearts destined to be together. Michael Bartz played on Larned’s 1985 playoff team. Eighteen years later, Michael Bartz never got a chance to see his sons compete in a 2013 playoff game. Brandon said he wanted people to remember his father’s work behind the scenes to promote the local Western Kansas Junior Football League. “My dad loved junior-tackle football and always wanted youngsters to experience the chance to play football and learn life’s lessons from the game. He grew up loving football.” Brandon wanted the Indian statue to be built first-class. He ordered it from “Bronzeman,” in Los Angeles. The website writes — “All of our bronze sculptures are hand crafted and cast in the ancient ‘Lost Wax Process,’ which captures incredible detail and results in a higher quality bronze sculpture.” “It was very expensive,” Brandon said. “But when the people knew why I was making the statue, I think they sent my project to the top of the list.” Every time a donation arrived, Brandon thought of his father, who had performed good work for others because it knew it was the right thing to do. Major $2,500 contributors were the Bartz Family, Kyle and Tamara Beckwith, Lewis Young, Jim and Suzan Haynes and the Larned Junior Indian Football Club. “I knew most of the people who donated personally. I knew when they gave donations it was because of what my dad has done for others over the years,” he said. “It had nothing to do with me. People have been awesome.” Larned High teacher Janet Fleske knew Brandon had the passion to raise more than $35,000 in donations for the most ambitious “Do Hard Things,” English project she’s ever witnessed. “Brandon’s project was special because he first had a ‘why’ for his project — to give honor to his dad and to the sport he loved,” Fleske said. “He then came up with the idea of the Indian. That’s why the project was so successful — he had the ‘why’ before he had the idea.” Brandon first got the idea of creating a life-size Indian statue when he saw a stuffed Eagle at Kingman High School last year. Fleske said Brandon achieved the valuable lesson of engaging others to help with a project. “It’s to help them learn to achieve something that is too big to do alone,” Fleske said. “They learn to work with others, learn how to overcome obstacles, and learn to self-reflect.”

T

he Santa Fe Trail Center Museum has hired Richard Lartz as the exhibit designer for the East Gallery renovation. Museum director Becca Hiller said it will likely require 12 to 18 months to complete the work. Lartz earned a master’s degree in public history from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, in 2014. “Richard has got some great ideas, building on ideas that we already had in place,” Hiller said. The museum has been working on gallery renovation, but until now there wasn’t one person who could focus exclusively on that project. Along with designing and building exhibits, Lartz is responsible for deciding what artifacts go into the exhibits. “This has been an ongoing project for several years,” Hiller said. The “Go the Distance Fund Drive,” was spearheaded by Elaine Mull, Keith Mull and Larry Carr, who recognized the need for updated interpretation and exhibits in the museum. This effort has raised money for the renovation, new lighting in the exhibit spaces and traveling exhibits. The lights in the museum have been replaced with LED motion activated lights, the old East Gallery exhibits were disassembled, and the Hispanic Trader exhibit in the lobby was moved to the East Gallery. In addition, project team members Bev Howell, Hiller and Monte Martin – with Dallas-based Martin & Martin Design – have developed basic concept ideas and storylines. Doug Springer has also built some of the new exhibit pieces. “Richard has a big job ahead of him,” Hiller said. “He is responsible for building on what has already been accomplished and bringing the team’s vision to fruition.” The museum, two miles west of Larned on K-156, is dedicated to the historic commerce route known as the Santa Fe Trail. It is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The Fort Larned Historical Society, which owns and operates the Sante Fe Trail Center Museum, first ran a small curio shop with some historic displays at Fort Larned. The museum has grown to encompass a large complex of ten buildings, located on 10 acres two miles west of Larned. The Santa Fe Trail Center Museum launched a new website, SantaFeTrailCenter.org, in July. Hiller said the new site is the next best thing to visiting the museum in person. It allows guests to request information or make a donation in the convenience of their homes. Last November, the museum participated in Giving Tuesday through the Golden Belt Community Foundation. Donations made to the SFTC endowed fund were matched by a donator to use on the website. The museum is still accepting donations for the Go the Distance Fund Drive. For more information contact Hiller at the Santa Fe Trail Center Museum, 620-285-2054.

SANTA FE TRAIL CENTER MUSEUM SOURCE 49

The museum has an extensive collection of authentic objects in its collections, including prehistoric American Indian artifacts, trade items from the trail, antique furniture, agricultural equipment, vintage automobiles, tools, toys, paintings, rugs, clothing, medical equipment, and more. These artifacts help us interpret and share the history that has shaped our country and our community. Photographs With over 7,000 historic photographs and 2,300 magic lantern glass slides, you get a glimpse into the past and a better understanding of what was important to people of the late 19th and early 20th century – historic sites along the Santa Fe Trail, dust storms, Pawnee County businesses, pioneer families, celebrations, farming, and more. And many of these pictures are available to view in our Online Photograph Collection. The Sante Fe Trail Center Museum has a wealth of resources available for researchers. Whether you want to learn about 19th century agriculture or are researching your family tree in Pawnee County the museum’s Research Library & Archives will be able to help you. Over 700 linear feet of archival records document life in Larned, surrounding communities, and Pawnee County. The museum is the official repository of historic Pawnee County records. In addition, genealogical documents are housed, such as personal papers, family histories, business records, church records, obituaries and fraternal organization records.

The museum has an extensive collection of books in its research library, including topics on American Indians, Spanish exploration, pioneer life on the plains, the Santa Fe Trail, Westward Expansion, trappers and much more. The library is free and open to the public; however, we recommend that you make an appointment in advance. Call 620-285-2054 to schedule a time. The museum is a non-profit organization owned by the members of the Fort Larned Historical Society, and operated by a board of volunteer members. It relies on contributions and membership fees. Several levels of membership are offered from individual starting at $30. The museum is funded by contributions, memberships and attendance. The complex includes nine buildings, 10 acres, and thousands of artifacts to care for. The volunteers and small staff love history, or the mission would cease to exist. The Tired Iron Show, the second weekend in October, is a family event, and a multi-faceted educational opportunity for today’s children to learn about the progression of agriculture and their heritage in this part of the country. The museum sponsors an annual Family Kite Fly event the first week of May. For information, call 620-285-2054 or go to the website: www.santafetrailcenter.org and be a friend of the museum on Facebook.

GARFIELD MEMORIAL WAYSIDE CHAPEL US-56, Garfield Downey Memorial Park Garfield’s first citizens in 1873 honored their former congressman, James A Garfield of Ohio, by naming the town after him. In gratitude, he gave the town a bell for the first church erected. That church was Garfield’s Congregational Church, built in 1875. The Wayside Chapel is a memorial to the church, made from pieces of the church, and inside visitors can view the bell.

DISCOVERER OF PLUTO HISTORICAL MARKER Whether you consider it a planet or a dwarf planet, Pluto has received plenty of press lately. Burdett is the boyhood home of Dr. Clyde Tombaugh, discoverer of the Pluto. It was here that his love of stars began, as he began his love-affair with the night sky. Take a drive past the marker and learn more about the man who not only discovered today’s most controversial planet-like body, but also made several other notable space discoveries. Find it on K-156, at the west edge of Burdett

GOLF SOURCE 59

L

arned Country Club Superintendent Dan Collins first played golf with former New York Yankee pitcher Ralph Terry 50 years ago. Collins and Terry cultivated their friendship through golf, and Collins insures that Larned Country Club is maintained in prime playing condition. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent the past seven summers serving as golf course superintendent. He first started work at the course as a high school sophomore. Collinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; grandson, Braeden Corman, has worked the past few years at the course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoyable to spend time working with my grandson,â&#x20AC;? Collins said. Consultant Neil DeWerff provides agronomic advice for Collins, who works with part-timers Harold Dixon and Steve Webb. Michael Reece, another past part-time employee, spent the summer at Hutchinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prairie Dunes Country Club. Reece is studying turf management at Kansas State University. The courseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest addition is a fullyoperational driving range west of the clubhouse that allows multiple players to hit range balls. The fully-lighted north/south driving range featuring buffalo grass stretches out to 330 yards. A golf-ball retriever replaces the prior

LO V E

system where players hit their own golf balls on the range, a slow and unsafe process. Now, there are more than 2,000 golf balls struck on the driving range. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, multiple players can hit at the driving range,â&#x20AC;? Collins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have five times more players working at the range. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also brought traffic onto the course. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed the younger players who can work on their game.â&#x20AC;? The work crew has installed five new trees in the past year, including several diseaseresistant trees. The crew had previously planted oak and maple trees to replace aging maple and cedar trees. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve planted shrubs and pampas grass. The third green has been improved with a larger green. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new grass needs to fill in, and in a year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as good as new,â&#x20AC;? Collins said. The newest project features a â&#x20AC;&#x153;green nursery,â&#x20AC;? that will grow plots that can replace needed places on the greens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got that nursery accomplished,â&#x20AC;? he said. Typical maintenance includes reseeding the fairways and includes work on the greens and maintenance on the sprinklers. Building a retaining wall at the No. 7 tee box is still on the schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to do at least one project every year,â&#x20AC;? Collins said.

Your Lawn

A wet spring has seen wild barnyard grass flourish along with the bluegrass and perennial rye fairways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of mowing this year, and spot spraying for weeds and grasses we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want,â&#x20AC;? Collins said. David Blackwell serves as Larned Country Club president. Larned Country Club operates the Pin High Bar & Grill, which serves customers in the clubhouse, 620-804-6238. The Pin High is generally open at 5:00 p.m. each day the course is open for business. Green fees are $15 during weekdays and $20 on the weekend. Larned Country Club opened in 1950. It is a well-maintained course featuring small and sloped Bentgrass greens with bluegrass and perennial rye fairways. Three of the sloping fairways are doglegs and tree-lined. Water hazards come into play on three holes. The nine-hole Larned Country Club layout features 2,747 yards of golf from the longest tee for a par of 35. The course rating is 33.9 and it has a slope rating of 106. The golf course property is owned by the city of Larned, which pays for the water and irrigation system. Golf carts and cart shed rentals are available. Larned Country Club features members from Pawnee, Barton and Edwards counties.

Schedule subject to change Check back to www.srcadragstrip.com prior to event A lot has changed in drag racing over the last 50 years. There are more sponsorships by larger corporations, more regional races, and many more classes of dragsters. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all had a go on the former B-29 air strip, thrilling spectators who marvel at the speeds, the sounds, and the smells of serious racing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been the go-to place for locals to open up their stock cars and see just what kind of power their well-tuned engines possess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Racing gets into your blood,â&#x20AC;? Hank Denning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It becomes a family experience, with kids and adults coming out to cheer one another on.â&#x20AC;? Age divisions start as young as five years old, so it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to see miniature versions of dragsters wheeling up to the starting lines with pint-sized drivers behind the wheel. While these Junior Dragsters are limited to the speeds they are allowed to reach on the track, they learn important driving skills and earn NHRA points that help to increase their standings by the end of the driving season. The more

points a driver earns during a season, the higher the chance they can win NHRA championship titles. NHRA has added a JR Street program which kids with a learners permit can run 1/8 mile with a guardian in the passenger seat of a door car. They do have to license with NHRA and track official to make sure they feel they are capable of driving the car. In 2014, the SRCA dragstrip was part of Hot Rod Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious Drag Week event for the second time, an honor only a few tracks have received since the magazine was first published. In 2016, 27 new teams attended the Lucas Oil Divisional, Denning said, and more made plans to race in Great Bend in 2017. These racers took advantage of the opportunity to race here on their way back home from an event in Bowling Green, Ky., and spread the word. Highlights from 2016 included the Rocky Mountain Race Week; the Sammy Matthews Play Day Charity Event; the Rocky Mountain Superchargers; the NHRA National Dragster and Jr. Dragster Challenge.

O

ne of the major attractions of Barton County is the L.E. “Gus” and Eva Shafer Memorial Art Gallery. Known as the “Gem” of Barton Community College, it is located at the Fine Arts building on the Barton Community College campus, 245 NE 30 Road, Great Bend. “Where the old west meets the future” is the motto of the gallery. Ground was broken in September of 1991 after a donation from Art Inc. and a generous gift from Eva Shafer. The gallery is named after Leonard E. “Gus” Shafer and his wife Eva Shafer. Many different types of art work can be found at the gallery. But it is most famous for the western themed bronze sculptures made by L.E. “Gus” Shafer. “Gus” Shafer was born in 1907 on a farm southwest of Hoisington. He worked as a commercial artist for 38 years. In 1968 he closed his art studio and began sculpting bronzes full-time. He became internationally famous for his work. Shafer passed away March 5, 1985. Many of his sculptures can be seen at the gallery in their permanent art display, with many other pieces of art. The Gallery presents an outstanding schedule of art exhibitions by trending contemporary, regional and nationally known artists. The Shafer Gallery also self-curates

GREAT BEND BRIT SPAUGH ZOO SOURCE 63

Great Bend’s Brit Spaugh Zoo features animals from around the world. It’s a fun and educational place the entire family can enjoy, and admission is free! Open daily 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Enter off north Main Street at 23rd and Main. More than 60 years ago, Great Bend’s park supervisor Brit Spaugh fulfilled his dream to create a zoo and park that would delight area children. In 1953, the zoo started with two deer. Today, the zoo is part of a 46-acre park with 50 different species of animals, including some species that are on conservation lists, such as the arctic foxes, Todd and Vixie. In the spring of 2016, Vixie had her second litter of kits at the zoo. The zoo also has a pair of serval cats, a breed on the Species Survival Program run by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. One of the newest additions is the three-banded armadillo, a smaller South American cousin to the nine-banded armadillos common to North America. Three-bandeds are the only armadillos that can roll themselves into a ball. Sara Hamlin was named zoo supervisor and animal curator in 2015. The zoo is inspected annually by the United States Department of Agriculture.

PLANNED EXPANSION

Two major improvements to the zoo were announced March 21, 2016. A future exhibit for bison is planned, as well as an expanded habitat for the four grizzly bears. These projects were made possible by two gifts totaling $230,000 from the Dorothy M. Morrison Foundation. Other plans include an exhibit area for Ringo, the ring-tailed lemur, and a new exhibit for Poppy, the binturong.

RAPTOR REHAB

With so much to see at the Great Bend Brit Spaugh Zoo, there’s also a lot that goes on behind the scenes. Injured birds of prey – raptors – are nursed back to health. All human contact is kept to a minimum to avoid imprinting. The goal is to reintroduce the birds to the wild, if possible.

RAPTOR CENTER

The Raptor Center is the main building at the zoo, which is very much open to the public. You enter the zoo through this building. Inside are a meeting area, restrooms and a gift shop. The greeter can answer questions and sell you some duck food. The meeting area can be booked for parties and educational programs. Peer through a large window into the veterinary clinic. Visitors can learn more about raptors through the building’s interactive learning stations. Among the displays, you will find a depiction of an eagle’s nest, a camera that provides a raptor’seye view of the zoo, and a wing span chart to see where you measure up to various raptors.

GET INVOLVED

There are several ways to get more involved, either by sponsoring an animal or by serving as a volunteer. Membership in the Great Bend Zoological Society costs $25 a year for an individual or a family. Sign up or learn more at the front desk, or call the zoo office, 620-793-4226. Membership forms may also be found on the City of Great Bend website, greatbendks.net.

64 SOURCE WETLANDS WATERPARK

A destination destination p park ark

Great Bendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s municipal swimming pool opened in the 1930s as a Works Project Administration (WPA) project. But in 2005, after major renovation, it became much more than a swimming pool. This destination attraction is one of the finest waterparks in central Kansas.

More than swimming

The park features multiple slides, spray features, a swimming pool with a divided shallow end separated by floating features, climbing wall, a Water Wars area for slinging water balloons at a friend, and a 300-gallon tipping bucket, which periodically drenches anyone who stands under it. There are bath houses, concession area and several shady spots. In 2015 the website greatbendwaterpark.com was launched. On this site you can find the latest information on prices and rules, and whether the pool is open or closed. The website also has a weather feature which allows visitors

i current and d upcoming i to view weather conditions. The Wetlands Waterpark can also be found on the internet on Facebook and Twitter. Swimming lessons and other aquatics programs are provided in partnership with the Great Bend Recreation Commission. For more information contact the Great Bend Rec Center, 620-793-3755 or www.greatbendrec.net. After the pool closes for the summer, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually one last splash â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for dog paddling. On Dog Day at the Pool, also known as Bark at the Waterpark â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Wetlands is open to

i swimmers i l Dogs D canine only. must have their rabies tags and be well behaved. Admission to this event is used for improvements at Great Bendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off-leash Bark Park, located in Veterans Memorial Park.

JOIN US AT THE 6TH ANNUAL GREAT BEND FARM & RANCH EXPO APRIL 5, 6, 7, 2017

O

ne of the largest farm shows in the United States takes place in the spring at Great Bend’s Expo Complex. In 2016, show manager Darren Dale said the number of exhibitors had grown by 18 percent from the previous year, with more than 700 booths spread over 80 acres, with exhibitors from 27 states, Canada and Australia. “Great Bend is one-of-a-kind,” Dale said. “You have pride in the community and you have pride in this show – and it really shows. ... My wife Tana and I are committed to Great Bend for many years to come.” “Great Bend is the ideal community for an agricultural show like this because of our deep roots in the farming and ranching industries,” said Jan Westfall, expo chairman. “And, we have an eager, supporting volunteer base to make our exhibitors and farmers feel welcome.” It takes about 300 volunteers to pull off the show. These folks make sure the exhibitors have what they need, assist with parking and perform other duties. The Farm and Ranch Expo is a great

place to check out the latest farm and ranch equipment, but the show is also a venue for entertainment and educational demonstrations. Each year is different. Some highlights of last year’s Expo included cattle handling and horse training demonstrations, free health screenings, K-State Research & Extension presentations, a dog demonstration by Randy Bradford, chute side demos and the Peterson Farm Bros. A variety of concessions and a beer garden are available as well. Great Bend Mayor Mike Allison welcomes everyone to the show, taking time to brag about some of the attractions in town for people to visit. Allison noted the show has a positive financial impact at businesses in town. “Motels fill up,” he said, and people visit the shops and restaurants. So, if you’re planning an overnight trip during the next Great Bend Farm & Ranch Expo, but sure to book ahead.

I

t was the best of times and the worst of times for the 2016 wheat harvest in Pawnee County. Record-breaking bushels of wheat rolled into the Pawnee County Coop Association, which has worked with the local farming community since 1905. The 4 million bushels of wheat was the largest harvest Kim Barnes, Pawnee County Coop Association Chief Financial Officer, has ever witnessed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 800,000 bushels more than normal, the largest Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in 19 years,â&#x20AC;? Barnes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The negative economic impact is that the farmers are getting under $3.00 per bushel.â&#x20AC;? Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3 million bushel was boosted by $6 wheat, which creates $18 million in initial revenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down $6 million of revenue immediately,â&#x20AC;? Barnes said. The wheat harvest delivers revenue that is constantly recirculated into other aspects of the economy.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve bought 60 percent of the wheat weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve brought in, which is right on target for us,â&#x20AC;? Barnes said. Farmers have offset low prices through the loan deficiency payment (LDP) program, which offers an excellent tool for marketing grain when conditions are most favorable. When producers enter the program, they can choose to receive a loan against their crop, or if prices are low, they can choose to be paid an LDP instead of taking out a loan. LDP rates change daily and are determined for each county and crop according to loan rates and calculated posted county prices. The fall harvest is expected to start in September with similar forecasts of a large harvest for corn and milo and relatively low prices for the commodities. Corn has dropped from a $4 price into less than $3 this summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dryland corn is first, followed by milo,â&#x20AC;? Barnes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is expecting a big fall crop.â&#x20AC;? PCCA has changed the grain storage skylines of Larned, Garfield, Mackville and Dartmouth. PCCA was formed when Larned farmers met at the Pawnee County Courthouse in 1905 to plan a wooden grain elevator in Larned. Since then, the PCCA has expanded to offer complete grain handling facilities, with more than five million bushels of storage space.

Oil producers see glimmer of hope

T

he cost of a gallon of gasoline in the Golden Belt has seemed to have been on a yo-yo course over this past year, fluctuating around the $2 mark. For a short spell, motorists saw the lowest pump prices in years. But that evaporated as reality set back in the petroleum markets. “There is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel,” said John Farmer IV, a Russell oilman and a vice chairman of the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association Board. “However each operator may be different as to when they get back to drilling.” It’s been a long, downhill slide and it will be a long climb. Per-barrel prices were in the $90 range but dropped to a low of $20.88 this past spring. It hovered around $40 in early summer. The oil drilling rig count shadows the crude price. Now that oil prices are headed upwards, the number of rigs is following suit.

A wait-and-see attitude

“There could be a point in a rising crude price environment where a lot of operators will want to start back up with drilling and we could have a shortage of rigs available to accommodate this demand,” Farmer said.

Some operators are wanting to see a more established positive cash flow for a while before they begin drilling. Farmer said John O. Farmer Inc. has a “pretty nice” inventory of locations to be drilled once the price recovers. “This may be due to the timing of when we shot 3D seismic over the acreage and the decline of the crude price occurring nearly simultaneously.”

Reversing a trend

Kansas crude oil prices dropped below $20 in early 2016 as a global glut of production drastically dropped prices. The drop in crude oil prices triggered over 70 bankruptcies of oil gas exploration and production companies, said KIOGA President Ed Cross. However, “a steady contraction in production by U.S. producers and a corresponding slide in crude oil inventories have fueled a modest price rebound,” he said. Other factors bolstering prices include attacks on Nigerian oil installations and massive wildfires in Canada that have undermined Canadian oil production. “I would best describe Kansas producers as cautiously optimistic about oil prices,” Cross said.

tarted originally as “Brown’s Grove” 23 miles west of Larned, Burdett was named for Dr. Gallatin Brown who staked out the townsite in 1876. It was a thriving settlement and in 1879 Wright and Johnson built a flour mill with a dam on the Pawnee River furnishing power for the machinery. It was the first in Kansas west of Hutchinson and was in operation for eight years. The railroad was surveyed from Larned in 1885 and the first train arrived in 1886. The tracks came in a half mile south of “Brown’s Grove” so business moved to the railroad and the town was re-named “Burdett” by the railroad officials for a famous writer and humorist Robert Jones Burdette. This was the end of the line for a year and a hand operated turntable was used. These were the boom years for the town. Clyde Tombaugh graduated from Burdett Rural High School in 1925. Tombaugh made his first telescope, and what he initially learned of astronomy was learned among the currant bushes on his family’s Kansas farm. In the fall of 1928, he went to Flagstaff, Ariz., and was put in charge of the new 13-inch telescope at the Lowell Observatory. At one time there was a grade school and a high school with the 64th and last class graduating from Burdett High School in 1966. Burdett and Rozel unified to become Pawnee Heights High School the next year.

he first settlers of Garfield came from Ohio, not Sweden, as was once believed. The Swedes came a few years later. In January 1873, two months after Pawnee County was organized by proclamation of Gov. James Harvey, members of the Ohio colony filed on about 30 pieces of land near the present site of Garfield, then known as Camp Criley. Camp Criley was established in the late summer of 1872 as a supply station for workmen building the Santa Fe Railroad. It was named for Capt. J.D. Criley, superintendent of the construction. In March 1873, the advance guard of the Ohio colony arrived. During the summer of ‘73, others joined the growing settlement on the Arkansas River. The first religious services were held in the town that summer, the Methodists forming a Sunday school class and the Congregationalists organizing a church. Later a Union Sabbath school was established. The Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church was organized in 1879. The Ohioans changed the name of the town from Criley to Garfield in honor of James A. Garfield, the congressman from their old district in Ohio, and later president of the United States. When Mr. Garfield was informed of this honor, he wrote that he would present a bell to the first church erected in the town. The bell hung in the Congregational Church from 1875 to 1959 and is now part of a monument in the City Park.

Larned L

arned is home to more than 100 businesses and 4,098 residents, according to the 2016 census. The nearby Fort Larned National Historic Site and Santa Fe Trail Center feature the local history in Pawnee County. Fort Larned’s holiday weekends showcase living history days in which volunteers re-enact life on the Fort. Fort Larned and the Santa Fe Trail Center feature periodic programs and activities and historical displays. The City celebrates the annual Santa Fe Trail Days, Tired Iron Show and the Pawnee County Fair. Larned, the county seat of Pawnee County, was built on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad at the confluence of the Pawnee and the Arkansas Rivers. Larned, named for nearby Fort Larned, was laid out in December, 1873 on land granted by Jerry Toles and John W. and Mary Adams. John Adams became the president of the Larned Town Company. Soon, his wife’s parents, Reverend and Mrs. Charles Sturdevant, joined them. The pastor would later become one of the first ministers of Larned’s Presbyterian Church. The first home in Larned was constructed by Captain Henry Booth who served as postmaster at Fort Larned and helped establish the new settlement. In 10 years, Larned was an incorporated city of the third class with about 50 business establishments. Several churches were established including a Methodist Church, two Presbyterian organizations and two Baptist Churches — one for African-Americans and one for whites. In the 1880s, Larned featured several hotels, grain dealers, dry-goods, grocery stores, druggists, hardware, jewelry, boot and shoe dealers, blacksmiths, wagon makers, meat markets, lumber dealers, livery stables, harness and saddle makers, confectioners and bakers, banks, barbers, coal dealers, physicians, attorneys, tailors, millinery establishments, and real estate and insurance agents.

By the turn of the century, Larned, which boasted more than 1,300 residents had become a trading and shipping point for its area farms and ranches. The town also featured two newspapers — The Chronoscope and The Tiller and Toiler, three banks with deposits of more than $850,000, a new city hall, an opera house, a hospital, a city park, waterworks, electricity for lighting and power, a fire department, all the leading church denominations, a creamery, flour mills, a foundry, and several grain elevators. The next decade saw much growth for the city, as by 1910, its population had reached nearly 3,000 people. In 1914, the Larned State Hospital was established for the mentally ill in the western part of the state. In 1939, it took on additional responsibilities with the opening of State Security Hospital. Prior to 1960, the Larned State Hospital accommodated only adult patients, general psychiatric and forensic. But starting in 1966, treatment programs were added for children, adolescents, the chemical dependent and security behavior males.

The Larned Juvenile Correctional Facility and the Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility are joined by the Larned State Hospital complex which features the Psychiatric Services Program, the State Security Program and the Sexual Predator Treatment Program.


PATIENCE & PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF in Larned’s Newest Duplex Housing Community

L

arned’s housing director Charles Spina has learned to be patient. One-by-one, Larned’s 10 duplexes have begun to rent, slowly but surely shifting the 3.2 million Prairie Vista housing project into a success. Six months after Prairie Vista opened, 11 of the 20 units have been filled, giving Spina optimism that the city of Larned has turned the corner. “We were shooting for the half way mark of having half of the units rented by mid summer and we have reached that major goal” Spina said. “We have a nice mix of families, professionals, teachers, nurses and retirees.” Several of the renters are new residents of Larned, a target of the city’s project to build the 3-bedroom rental duplexes that occupy 1,200 square feet. The estimated value of each duplex unit is $135,000.00. They are renting for $875 a month. After four years of home remodeling, Tyson and Stephanie Reynolds sold their home on State Street with the help of her mother Jana Schartz at Picket Fence Real Estate. Tyson works at Mulls Farms & Feeding in Pawnee Rock. “Once we put it on the market, we sold it within a week,” Stephanie said. “We were very surprised and pleased by that. But that’s why we had to find another place to live.” Stephanie said she had liked the Prairie Vista duplexes so much, she had told her hair clients at Bliss Salon and Boutique, 418 Broadway, that she might sell everything and move there. Her initial thought soon became reality. Stephanie said the housing space is sufficient for a young family. “The perks of acquiring something new was something that is worth a lot to us,” she said. “It’s clean and new. They are more spacious than we expected. There is a lot of kitchen storage space. The storage space for clothes sold us on it. Everything was brand new. Once we saw it, there was never a reason to look anywhere else.” The quiet neighborhood north of K-156 and Morris is perfect for their children Taeten and Talon. “It’s peaceful out here,” Stephanie said. “The kids can ride

their bikes and scooters and not have to worry about traffic.” Stephanie believes the interest will continue to grow for Prairie Vista. “There is always people driving around,” she said. “People like to see something nice. The homes are beautiful, the streets are new and the landscaping is all pretty. This is all a good thing.” “The Reynolds family has been a positive ambassador for Prairie Vista and Stephanie has been a great spokesman for Prairie Vista,” Spina said. “She knows and meets a lot of people every day. People like to see what their community and city has done to improve local housing.” Spina said “one big attraction is that the city of Larned provides all the yard and building maintenance for it’s tenants.” “Most people really appreciate the fact that they are very energy efficient, low utility costs, quality construction and come with lots of amenities” Spina said. One change Larned’s city council approved is to allow some of the duplexes to be designated as pet-friendly. A nearby pet park is under construction. “We’ve definitely rented some duplexes because we are allowing pets,” Spina said. Leawood’s Overland Property Group, LLC, served as developer. Jones Gilliam Renz of Salina served as architect. Woodco Construction Solutions of Republic, Mo. served as the builder. Manhattan’s LST Consulting Engineers performed electrical and mechanical work. Salina’s Manley Structural Engineers performed the structural engineering, along with Larned’s local contractors Ike Shaver Plumbing, Haynes Electrical and Eakin Enterprises Inc. Larned used a $400,000 grant from the Kansas Housing Resources Commission to help with infrastructure and development. The city owns the property and helped develop the road, sewer and water infrastructure. Anyone with questions can contact Charles Spina at 620-285-8519.

Prairie Vista is located at 1100 West 16th St in Larned.

ocated 17 miles west of Larned, is home to the 154 residents of Rozel, KS. It was incorporated Nov. 29, 1929, and has a mayor-council form of city government with water and gas systems municipally owned. It is situated on the Jetmore branch of the Santa Fe Railroad, formerly the Chicago, Kansas and Western R.R. The original townsite was deeded to the Arkansas Valley Town and Land Company by the railroad on July 19, 1886. The name Rozel was selected in honor of a daughter of one of the founders of the Land Company, whose name was Rozella. A Methodist church was built in 1905; replaced by a new building in January 1965, and dedicated April 23, 1972. The Baptist church was built in 1916. The first post office was in 1870 and known as Keysville. In 1880 the name was changed to Ben Wade to honor a Civil War lawyer. Rozel has survived two disastrous fires, a tornado and numerous floods. Nearly all the business district was destroyed by fire on Sept. 24, 1929. On May 20, 1949, a tornado and hailstorm severely damaged or destroyed nearly every building in town. The town rebuilt to the community that stands today. A grant has been received for redoing the water system for the city of Rozel. Plans are to drill a new water well and put in new piping to combine Well No. 2 and build a new water treatment facility. The majority of the grant was received from USDA Rural Development. The city of Rozel received a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant. The grant was used to remodel an existing building that is used for the Rozel Community Center at 105 Main. Another change in store for Rozel includes revamping the fire department.
