School officials, legislators weigh in on school funding ruling AMBER DETERS The Kansas Supreme Court issued its ruling Friday, May 27, in the Gannon v. State of Kansas school finance case in almost-unheard-of time — one week to the

day after hearing oral arguments. The Court said in its ruling that the Legislature’s latest attempt to fix inequities in school finance continues those inequities to the detriment of poor districts. The Court, again, said the Legislature

had until June 30, the last day of the fiscal year, to produce a constitutional finance plan, or on July 1 schools would be unable to operate. Prairie Hills USD No. 113 Superintendent Todd Evans said that

while it is unfortunate that school districts are involved in a lawsuit against the state, he also believes it is unfortunate that support for districts has been reduced to the point that school districts believe there is a necessity in order to be

advocates for children. Senator Dennis Pyle, R-Hiawatha, said the Kansas Supreme Court set aside “months of hard work by the duly-elected Kansas Legislature” when the Court struck down the Classroom Learning As-

suring Student Success (CLASS) Act. “It is the function of the legislature, and not unelected judges, to appropriate funding for state FUNDING.11A


Sale of Westar will not halt reliability projects Despite being sold to Great Plains Energy, Westar Energy’s reliability improvement projects for the area will continue as planned. KRISTA WASINGER

At a ceremony at the Apostolic Christian Retirement Village on Sunday, June 5, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran presents World War II Veteran Harry “Kit” Beatty with an American Flag and a personalized Prisoner of War medal for Beatty’s status as a Prisoner of War in Germany during World War II, correcting an oversight of 70 years. Beatty’s official military records were lost in the process of his capture, liberation and repatriation, and he never received his POW medal. Pictured are (L-R) his wife, Mary Beatty, Harry “Kit” Beatty and U.S. Senator Jerry Moran. Tim Kellenberger | Herald

Westar Energy – the largest utility in Kansas – has been purchased by Great Plains Energy, based out of Kansas City, Mo. With this sale, Westar customers in the Sabetha, Bern and Oneida areas may be wondering what this means for their power reliability improvement projects. A large number of unexplained outages in the area over a two-year timeframe prompted Westar to further investigate the problems and develop a plan for improving the area’s reliability. The improvements include the construction of a low voltage line from the Seneca substation to Sabetha and the reconstruction of a low voltage line from the Seneca substation to Bern. Additionally, a new substation – the East Nemaha Substation – and high voltage line will be

constructed by March 2017. Why the sale? While Westar is the largest utility in Kansas, it is a small to mid-size energy company when compared to peers. “With slow growth in demand for electricity and our costs to do business increasing, the electric industry has experienced a lot of consolidation the past few years. Our board and management team decided the best viable path forward was to consider consolidating with another company,” said Westar spokeswoman Gina Penzig. “Through a competitive process, the Great Plains Energy offer was accepted by our board of directors. Great Plains has been serving Kansans as long as we have, so it made for a good fit.” The consolidated company is expected to bring efficiencies with its WESTAR.12A

A lengthy discussion has resulted in decisions to reduce Sabetha Elementary School kindergarten sections from four to three, and to combine the Wetmore Elementary School fourth and fifth grades into one classroom. Savings generated by eliminating these two positions could be as much as $77,648. The Prairie Hills USD No. 113 Board of Education first discussed the possibility of not filling all four of the SES vacancies during the April board meeting. At that time, only two of four positions were filled, and the board began exploring the possibility of combined classrooms at Wetmore Elementary School. “As we have in most recent years, USD 113 has been exploring the

possibility to reduce staff,” Superintendent Todd Evans said. “We endeavor to do this through attrition. Every position in our district that becomes available is one that is scrutinized to see if a reduction is possible.” The board discussed the possibility of combining classrooms at WES again in May, and asked Superintendent Evans to research the subject and discuss options with former combination classroom teachers, and current teachers and administration. At the board’s regular meeting held Monday, June 6, Evans told board members he had examined research, interviewed teachers who taught combined classes, and received input from teachers and SCHOOLBOARD.12A

Evelyn Lierz

Ryker Thomas Wasinger

Evelyn June Porter Lierz, 77, died Monday, June 6, 2016, in Holton. She was born June 28, 1938, at home in Wetmore, the daughter of Paul “Cobb” and Hazel George Porter. Evelyn attended Porter Grade School and transferred to Wetmore Attendance Center in fifth grade. She graduated from Wetmore High School in 1956. Evelyn married Leonard A. Lierz on June 28, 1956, in Wetmore. He preceded her in death on July 8, 2007, after 51 years of marriage. Born to this union were three children, Linda “Susie” (Clifford) Beard of Topeka, Vickie Ann (Mark) Pruett of Holton, and Michael Leonard (Janice) Lierz of Manhattan. Evelyn and Leonard had nine grandsons: Christopher and Andrew Beard; Matthew, Joseph, Billy, Benjamin and Marcus Pruett; and Jason and Conner Lierz, as well as five greatgranddaughters and four great-grandsons. Evelyn’s hobbies included cooking, canning and sewing. She sewed for individuals, made costumes for musicals and made both of her daughters’ wedding dresses. She worked for a short time at Trail’s Café and Jostens but much preferred being a homemaker. She enjoyed the outdoors, mowing, planting flowers and bird watching. Evelyn will be sadly missed by her family and many others. Mass of Christian Burial will be 10 a.m. Thursday, June 9, at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Holton. Burial will follow in Wetmore Cemetery. The Rosary will be recited 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, at Mercer Funeral Home, with visitation to follow.

Dale and Doris Snyder were united in marriage 65 years ago on June 8, 1951. Doris is the daughter of Ida and Bryan Roesch of Quinter, and Dale is the son of Mildred and Floyd Snyder of Morrill. The couple met at McPherson College, where Doris obtained an associate’s degree in English and literature, and Dale graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business. They made their home two miles west of Morrill, where Doris pursued her passion of homemaking, sewing and church work. Dale farmed and raised cattle and sheep. They resided on their home place for 57 years until moving to the Apostolic Retirement Village in Sabetha in 2008. Dale continued trips to the farm raising livestock and overseeing his crops. He continues trips today and brings back various garden bounties to share with many of their village neighbors. Two daughters made their union complete – Terri and her husband Jim Giesel of Riverton, and Debbie and her husband Lynn Bott of Lawrence. The couple also is blessed with four grandchildren and their spouses – Jamie and Keith Holliman, Joshua and Crystal Giesel, Jason Bott, and Mindy and Bryan Kastning; and nine great grandchildren The Sabetha Herald 6/8/2016 –Mia and Tanner Holliman; Brooklyn, Jett and Nash Giesel; and Lilly, Nicholas, Ericson and Annalie Kastning.

The Sabetha Herald 6/8/16


Compiled by Patty Locher from past issues of The Sabetha Herald


Friday, June 5, 1891 Fifth Annual Commencement of the Sabetha High School: The Grand Army hall was filled to its utmost capacity and hundreds of people were either standing or turned away, the crowd reaching out into the street last Friday evening, all to witness the graduating of the high school class of 1891. Last year additional studies were required and a year added to the course, so it had been two years since the public had enjoyed the pleasure of commencement festivities.


Thursday, June 8, 1916 Miss Zana Maxey, who was injured in the automobile accident near Morrill Sunday is in a critical condition. She cannot move herself and paralysis is feared. It is exceptionally sad as she is the only daughter.


Wednesday, June 4, 1941 Robert Benson received a letter from Capt. James Cavender at Camp Robinson, Ark., the first of the week. Cavender reported Battery D had the honor to fire the 21-gun salute on Memorial Day at Camp Robinson, and the commanding general said it was the most perfectly-timed salute he ever heard fired. Lt. Clyde Bloxsom of Battery D was responsible for the perfect timing of the salute, Cavender reports. The rain that amounted to about an inch at Sabetha and Seneca Monday afternoon dropped over four inches of precipitation in a short time at Goff, sending Spring creek out of its banks near Bancroft. The drainage ditch past Goff took care of the rushing waters near that town, but at the end of the ditch two miles southeast the water spread out over adjoining farm land. A bridge near Bancroft was washed out. The bridge is on the line between Wetmore and Reilly townships, and repair will probably be borne equally by Commissioner Emil Burky’s and Commissioner Albert Foster’s districts. Kenneth Ralston, about 10, son of Clyde (Si) Ralston was knocked unconscious Monday afternoon by a bolt of lightning which struck the corn crib in which he and his father had taken shelter from a shower of rain. The two were seated in a light truck parked in the driveway of the crib. When young Ralston stepped out of the truck to wipe the dust from the windshield, he was knocked down and made unconscious by a bolt of lightning that struck in one end of the crib. He was unconscious for nearly two hours.


Tuesday, June 7, 1966 Effective June 1, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dornes have sold Sycamore Springs resort to twin brothers Terry and Jerry Tietjens from Morrill. Mr. and Mrs. Dornes have operated the skating and swimming resort for the past 17 years. The Dorneses said they would stay and continue to help the Tietjens brothers for most of the summer. Terry is the music instructor for Morrill schools and Jerry is employed in Falls City. The Dorneses recently purchased the former Norburt Pierson home in Sabetha. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Shaefer have accepted the position of caretaker at the Sabetha Golf Club. They will move into the clubhouse this week. Mr. Shaefer has been driving a truck. The Shaefers have two children, J.D., 14, and Jeri, 10. Charles (Ed) Baskett, University of Kansas junior from Sabetha, has been selected for the second year by the department of architecture to fill a summer appointment as architectural draftsman with the Planning and Building Program at the K.U. Medical Center in Kansas City. This summer program was established in 1960 to provide experience and employment for a qualified KU architectural student.


Wednesday, June 5, 1991 Steve Deiter has sold his law practice at 1007 Main to Martin Mishler, son of Bill and Elaine Mishler of rural Sabetha. Deiter and his family are moving to Wylie, Texas, where he will work as a city attorney while attending seminary. Mishler and his family moved here in May from Oklahoma, where he served as an attorney with the Army. A purple finch family recently made its home on a wild grapevine wreath on the front door of Joe and Tillie Menold’s home. “They didn’t seem to mind our going in and out, and even tolerated two very active grandchildren for several days,” the Menolds report. “We did, however, confine our pet cat after the eggs were hatched and we did anchor the nest during a strong windstorm. Five fledglings have since left their home.”

opinion EDITORIAL Shake It Off Voter apathy, that is. Much like a driver’s license is a right with responsibility attached, so too is voting. Unfortunately, many of us don’t treat it as such. Truth told, this is because we are much less likely to place value on something we didn’t have to earn. And very few of us have actually earned the “Right to Vote” in any way. We didn’t have to complete a voter’s education class. We didn’t have to study. We didn’t have to pass any tests. We didn’t have to provide service to our country in defense of this “right.” All we had to do was accumulate 18 birthdays. I’m not suggesting that the United States enact a law requiring people to pass a test to vote. What I am suggesting, however, is that we should all look at every election through the eyes of those who did earn it. We should take into consideration the enormous human sacrifices of those who have given their lives — or the lives of their loved ones — in pursuit of “liberty and justice for all.” Among those liberties, our right to vote. So please, evaluate the candidates. Start now. This is not a time to fill in the circle based on who looks good, speaks well, or debates strongly. With thorough evaluation, you should be able to choose the candidate who would best represent you — your morals, your values, your stance on issues. Then, be ready to move forward with the collective winner. Maybe you picked the winner, or maybe you didn’t. But at least you didn’t waste your vote, because a vote is only wasted if it does not reflect your heart and conscience. Amber Deters Co-Editor The Sabetha Herald

If you plan to be out in the sun, remember this catchphrase that prompts you to protect yourself — Slip! Slop! Slap! Wrap! Slip on a shirt or some type of clothing cover. Keep in mind that a typical T-shirt will only provide an SPF rating of 15 or lower, and when it is wet the protection is even less.

Slop on sunscreen. Make sure it is a broad-spectrum product with an SPF of 15 or higher. Some health professionals recommend an SPF of 30. Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before you will be in the sun and use one ounce — enough to fill a shot glass — to cover your entire body. Don’t rely on make-up that contains sunscreen. Reapply sunscreen about every two hours. Check the expiration date to make sure your sunscreen is still effective. When you buy sunscreen and it doesn’t have an expiration date, write the year on the tube with a permanent marker. Sunscreen products are good for two to three years. If they have been exposed to heat for long periods, they will be less effective. Slap on a hat and wrap on sun-

glasses. Choose a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. Avoid bug bites. While most bug bites are harmless, some mosquitoes and ticks can spread diseases (including Zika, dengue fever, West Nile virus, and Lyme disease), and some of these cannot be prevented or treated. Reduce your risk by preventing bug bites. Apply insect repellent when you are going to be outdoors and are at risk for getting bitten by ticks or mosquitoes. Use EPA-registered insect repellents that contain at least 20 percent DEET and apply a thin layer to the surface of all exposed skin. Follow the directions on the product to determine how frequently it needs to be applied. If humidity is high, you are perspiring, or get wet, you may need to reapply repellant more frequently.

Sericea lespedeza control in rangeland, pasture and CRP


ericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) will soon be in a rapid vegetative growth stage. Sericea lespedeza continues to be a major concern on rangeland, pasture, and some CRP acres in Kansas. There are no known biological controls that can be effectively used on sericea lespedeza. However, grazing with goats can suppress sericea lespedeza stands and produce a saleable product. It takes four to five goats per acre (of sericea) to graze the plant heavily enough to eliminate seed production. Sheep will also graze sericea. Frequent mowing will damage sericea lespedeza, but is also damaging to plants that might be growing/competing with sericea. A single mowing in mid- to lateJuly will eventually reduce stands of sericea lespedeza to some extent, but several years of mowing have not eliminated sericea in Kansas State University work. A

late-summer mowing will eliminate seed production most years. Integration of mowing and herbicides can reduce stands On the of sericea lespedeza. Wait about Extension four weeks after mowing before Line applying a her- BY: MATT YOUNG BROWN COUNTY bicide. H e r b i c i d e s EXTENSION applied at the correct time and under favorable environmental conditions can significantly reduce sericea lespedeza. Remedy Ultra (triclopyr) and PastureGard HL (triclopyr + fluroxypyr) can provide effective control when applied during June and into early July when the sericea plants are in a vegetative growth stage. Broadcast applications of Remedy Ultra at one to 1.5 pints per acre and PastureGard HL at 0.75 to 1.5 pints per acre

should be applied in spray volumes of 10 to 20 gallons per acre. Do not apply Remedy Ultra and PastureGard HL on CRP land until the grasses are established. These herbicides are likely to damage broadleaf plants that have been planted in CRP. Products containing metsulfuron, such as Escort XP, Cimarron Plus, and Chaparral are generally more effective in the late summer when sericea lespedeza is actively blooming. Recommended rates are 0.5 ounces per acre of Escort XP, 0.625 ounces per acre Cimarron Plus, and 2.5 to three ounces per acre Chaparral. Use a nonionic surfactant with all of these products. For spot application, mix 0.5 fl ounces PastureGard HL per gal-

lon of water, use a one percent solution of Remedy Ultra in water, or 0.3 grams Escort XP per gallon of water. Aerial applications of these products should be done with a minimum spray volume of three gallons per acre. Higher volumes, e.g. five gallons per acre, will generally be more effective. Herbicide treatments will need to be repeated every two to four years to keep this invasive species in check. Initial treatments should reduce dense stands to the point where spot treatment can be used in future years. Sericea lespedeza is a statewide noxious weed in Kansas and therefore needs to be controlled. It has a tremendous seed bank that helps reestablish stands. Left untreated, sericea lespedeza will dominate a site, greatly reducing forage production and species diversity. Persistence is needed to manage this species.

Concerns about raw milk, norovirus


ith June being Dairy Month, here is question I get from time to time concerning raw milk. Since the 1920s, milk has been pasteurized to kill disease-causing bacteria. But many consumers choose to consume raw milk. Illnesses from raw milk are 2.2 times higher in states that legally sell raw milk. In Kansas, it is legal to sell raw milk directly from the farm. From 2007 to 2012, outbreaks had increased nationwide. • 81 outbreaks resulted in 979 illness, 73 hospitalizations, no deaths. • Most infections were from cattle that appeared healthy. • Eighty-one percent of out-

breaks were in states that legally sell raw milk. • Fifty-nine percent of illnesses from raw milk were in children aged less Nutrition than five years & Finance old. • For every BY: CINDY outbreak re- WILLIAMS ported, many MEADOWLARK go unreported. EXTENSION Norovirus is DISTRICT No. 1 T h i s pa s t week, I attend training on food safety in Wichita. While being ranked at the top is typically a good position, being the leading cause of foodborne illness is daunting. Norovirus is now in that

top spot. About 20 million people get sick from norovirus each year, most from close contact with infected people or by eating contaminated food. Infected food workers cause about 70 percent of reported norovirus outbreaks from contaminated food. Norovirus often gets attention for outbreaks on cruise ships, but those account for only about one percent of all reported norovirus outbreaks. Norovirus is very con-

tagious, and outbreaks can occur anywhere people gather or food is served. People with norovirus usually vomit and have diarrhea. Some may need to be hospitalized and can even die. Infected people can spread norovirus to others through close contact or by contaminating food and surfaces. You may hear norovirus called food poisoning stomach flu. It is true that food poisoning can be caused by noroviruses. But, other germs and chemicals can also cause food poisoning. Norovirus illness is not related to the flu, which is a respiratory illness caused by influenza virus. Learn more at

Plant nutrient analysis in corn, mulching tomatoes


n economical and environmentally sound corn nutrient program often lies with the efficient use of nutrients in Crops & that system. In many cases, the Soils base of that pro- BY: DAVID gram is a soil HALLAUER test, but another MEADOWLARK useful tool that EXTENSION can be especially DISTRICT helpful as we fine tune our nutrient management system is plant analysis. This is typically done from two different angles. Diagnostic sampling can be done at any time and is particularly valuable early in the season when corrective measures can be taken to “fix” problems. The key: collecting representative samples from both normal and problem areas of the field for comparison purposes. If plants are less than a foot tall, submit the whole plant cut off at ground level. For taller plants and up until reproductive growth begins, collect the top, fully developed leaves. A soil sample from normal and problem areas can be help as well. For general monitoring or quality control purposes (or for diagnostic sampling of plants in the reproductive stage), plant leaves should be collected as the plant enters reproductive growth. Collect 15 to 20 ear leaves (the first leaf below and opposite the ear). The leaves should be randomly collected at silk emergence, before pollination, and before the silks turn brown. Avoid sampling under stress conditions (drought,

etc.) to reduce the potential for misleading results. Allow the collected leaves to wilt overnight (to remove excess moisture), then place in a paper bag or mailing envelope to ship to the lab. Avoid the use of plastic bags or tightly sealed containers that induce rot and decomposition during transport. Label clearly. What nutrients should you be testing for? We’ll discuss that more next week! Mulching tomatoes With daily high temperatures now more often in the 80s than not, it’s time to mulch tomatoes! Because tomatoes prefer even soil moisture levels, mulch is a must for preventing excessive evaporation, plus the side benefits of weed suppression, moderating soil temperatures and preventing soil crusting (crusted soils restrict air movement and slow water infiltration). Hay, straw, and grass mulches are very popular, but have to be used with care. Avoid hay/straw mulches with lots of weed or volunteer grain seeds or you may be creating a larger weed issue than you are providing suppression. When using grass clippings, apply in thin, dry layers two to three inches thick. Wet clippings can mold and become hard, limiting water infiltration. Grass clippings from lawns treated with a weed killer should also be avoided to prevent herbicide damage.

Bern man identified as shooting victim HEATHER STEWART The victim in a Memorial Day weekend shooting at Old Sabetha Lake has been identified by Sabetha Police Chief Robert Wahwasuck as 40-year-old Thad Lambrecht of Bern. At approximately 12:47 a.m. on Sunday, May 29, the Sabetha Police Department responded to a report that an individual had been shot at the Old Sabetha Lake. Witnesses physically detained the suspect — Anthony Leftwich, 59, of Dawson, Neb. — until officers arrived. According to witnesses, Leftwich was armed with

a handgun at the time, and the handgun was recovered at the scene. Leftwich was taken into custody and booked into the Nemaha County Jail on the charge of aggravated battery. He remains in the Nemaha County Jail on a $750,000 bond and his preliminary hearing has been scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday, June 13. Lambrecht was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, then transported on to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, where he remains in serious condition. Wahwasuck said the two were acquaintances and were involved in an argument, which led to the shooting.



Comprehensive Plan is finalized for public hearing HEATHER STEWART The Sabetha Planning Commission met at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 2. Planning Commission members present were Chairman Ed Steinlage, Vern Orton, John Rebant and Jerry Johnson. Also present for the meeting were Daniel Tramp, Assistant City Administrator Bill Shroyer and City Administrator Doug Allen. Jerry Johnson replaces Jeff Walter on the planning commission. Members reviewed the final version of the Comprehensive Plan

milking machines. In addition, a world-class milk powder production facility is currently being constructed in the state. “Kansas dairy farmers are an important part of the economic growth of the agriculture industry,” said Jackie McClaskey, Kansas Secretary of Agriculture. “Their success is a reflection of their hard work and commitment to improving the industry through innovations in dairy farming and milk processing.” The Kansas Department of Agriculture’s dairy program is committed to serving the dairy farmers in our state by supplying resources to help their farms and processing operations grow and thrive. The dairy inspection team helps them stay on the forefront of the dairy industry by providing information and education and by advocating for the dairy industry both locally and nationally.

Community Services and Facilities It was noted that the portion regarding Other Community Services and Facilities listed the plans for the construction of a 26,000 square foot addition onto Sabetha Community Hospital. They decided to change it to say the, “The final construction consisted of…” Next Steps Allen will send the final changes to Dave Yearout with Yearout Associates, and a public hearing with the updated document will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 7.


Netawaka advisory could last two to three months

KDHE issues warning for area lakes

June is Kansas Dairy Month

Submitted by Heather Lansdowne Kansas is one of the fastest growing dairy regions in the United States, and the Kansas Department of Agriculture is pleased to celebrate our hard-working dairy farmers during the month of June as the Governor has proclaimed it Kansas Dairy Month. The Kansas dairy and milk production industry grew in 2015, with 143,000 dairy cows producing 3.1 billion pounds of milk valued at $537 million, and behind those numbers are more than 300 family-run dairy farms. The growth of the dairy industry in Kansas means economic gains for local communities and the state, and more safe and nutritious dairy products for families in Kansas and across the region. Kansas dairies are becoming more progressive, as dairy farmers are making investments to enhance the milk processing industry in the state, and adding new advanced technologies like robotic

Atchison and Baileyville. Economic Development Planning Commission members decided the wording for the Planning Implications Recommendations needs reviewed and changed so it is not as strongly worded. Goals for Transportation Planning Commission members discussed the sidewalks along Oregon Street and how narrow they are. It was decided that improvements for sidewalks – especially on Oregon Street – needed to be added under goals or recommendations.


The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the City of Netawaka public water supply located in Jackson County. KDHE officials issued the advisory because of a line repair project resulting in repeated losses of pressure. Failure to maintain adequate pressure may result in a loss of chlorine residuals and bacterial contamination. The advisory will remain in effect for the duration of the line repair project, approximately two to three months. This advisory took effect on May 19 and will remain in effect until conditions which place the system at risk of contamination are deemed by KDHE officials to be adequately resolved. Customers should observe the following precautions until further notice: Boil water for one minute prior Members of the Kansas dairy industry join Governor Sam to drinking or food preparation, Brownback for the signing of the proclamation declaring June or use bottled water.

Leadership team to meet Submitted by Kerry Wedel The Delaware River Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) Program will host a Stakeholder Leadership Team meeting from 9 a.m. until noon Wednesday, June 22, at the Glacial Hills RC&D office in Wetmore. This meeting is free and open to the public. The Delaware WRAPS Stakeholder Leadership Team meets every six to eight weeks to discuss water quality challenges and opportunities in the Delaware River watershed and to allocate costshare funds to assist landowners in implementing best management practices on agricultural land that improve water quality. For more information, contact Kerry Wedel, Delaware River WRAPS Coordinator, at kwedel@ or 785-2843422.

Dispose of ice cubes and do not use ice from a household automatic icemaker. Disinfect dishes and other food contact surfaces by immersion for at least one minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water. Water used for bathing does not generally need to be boiled. Supervision of children is necessary while bathing so that water is not ingested. Persons with cuts or severe rashes may wish to consult their physicians. If your tap water appears dirty, flush the water lines by letting the water run until it clears. Public water suppliers in Kansas take all measures necessary to notify customers quickly after a system failure. Regardless of whether it’s the supplier or KDHE that announces a boil water advisory, KDHE will issue the rescind order following testing at a certified laboratory.

HERALD REPORT The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a warning status for high levels of toxic blue-green algae at the following bodies of water: Hiawatha City Lake in Brown County, Marion Reservoir in Marion County and Plainville Townships Lake in Rooks County. KDHE samples publicly accessible bodies of water for blue-green algae when the agency receives reports of potential algae blooms in Kansas lakes. Based on sampling results, KDHE reports on potentially harmful conditions. Lakes under a warning are not closed. Marinas, lakeside businesses and park camping facilities are open for business. If swim beaches are closed, it will be specifically noted. Drinking water and showers at parks are safe and not affected by algae blooms. Boating

and fishing are safe on lakes under a Warning, but contact with the water should be avoided. It is safe to eat fish caught during a harmful bluegreen algae outbreak, as long as the fish is rinsed with clean water; only the fillet portion is consumed and all other parts are discarded. Hands should also be washed with clean water after handling fish taken from an affected lake. Kansans should be aware that blooms are unpredictable. They can develop rapidly and may float around the lake, requiring visitors to exercise their best judgment. If there is scum, a paint-like surface or the water is bright green, avoid contact and keep pets away. These are indications that a harmful bloom may be present. Pet owners should be aware that animals that swim in or drink water affected by a harmful algal bloom or eat dried algae along the shore may become seriously ill or die.


BROWN COUNTY SHERIFF There are 20 inmates being held in the Brown County Jail – 14 males and six females. On May 29, Brenda Reynolds, 73, of Portland, Ore., was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence. On May 29, Charles Parker Jr., 39, of Willis was arrested on a charge of domestic battery.

Nemaha County Pheasants Forever




Nemaha County Commission The Board of Nemaha County Commissioners met in regular session on Tuesday, May 31, in the Commissioner’s Room of the Nemaha County Courthouse. Present were Chairman Gary Scoby, Commissioners Tim Burdiek and Dennis Henry, Road and Bridge/Solid Waste Supervisor Dennis Ronnebaum and Office Manager Kathy Haverkamp, and County Clerk Mary Kay Schultejans recording the minutes. Deb Henry and Marissa Randel came before the board on behalf of the Nemaha County 4-H Program to provide commissioners with an update concerning the National Conference that Randel recently attended in Washington, D.C. Department Reports Ronnebaum advised the board that crews are still doing repair jobs throughout the county. Haverkamp received a right-ofway easement request from Westar Energy to bore under 224th Road between Sections 11 and 14 of Nemaha Township. The easement

request was approved.Haverkamp also received a right-of-way easement request from Westar Energy for placement of two transmission structures in Section 10 of Capioma Township. This request also was approved. Noxious Weed/Emergency Preparedness Director Todd Swart advised the board that he needed an executive session with Commissioners.

Morrill High School Submitted by John Lehman Secretary The 88th annual Morrill High School Alumni Banquet was held Sunday, May 29. The Morrill Community Building was the location for all Tiger alums to gather. President Marcia Kanel Wikle (1969) called the meeting to order after a chicken breast dinner prepared by Buzz Cafe and served by members of the Morrill Tip Top 4-H Club. An expression of thanks was made for each group. James McKim (1962) gave the meal invocation. All alumni members and guests began the meeting by standing and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and listening to Sarah Scoby play the National Anthem. John Lehman (1964), secretary, requested approval of the minutes of the 2015 meeting, which had been previously mailed to all alumni members and were approved as printed. Rudy Lehman (1962), treasurer, presented the financial report, which will have an ending balance of around $5,500. There is an additional $8,500 designated for future scholarships with a specific area of study from a deceased alumni member, as well as other funds invested for future scholarship awards on gifts given by specific families.

More than $2,500 was received from this year’s alumni members. Yearly dues sent in by alumni members also are appreciated, especially from those who do not attend the yearly meetings. Rudolph Lehman (1962) conducted the Rosemary Hour. The following deceased members were remembered: Doris Buckley Sharp (1941), Auburn, Wash.; Leland Snyder (1949), Sabetha; Daphayne McNett Wagner (1952), Temple, Texas; Harold Lichty (1962), Banning, Calif.; and Larry Rosenberger (1971), Falls City, Neb.

They could then be kept on a permanent basis in the new community center. Approval was given for the Alumni Executive Committee to purchase the easel.

Distinguished Alumni Award Winners Sue Zimmerschied Robinson

Sue Zimmerschied Robinson should be selected as the 2016 Morrill High School Distinguished Graduate. Ever since graduation with the class of 1962, Sue has worked to improve her skills as an administrative specialist, as an active church member, and as a mother. First, in 1963, Sue graduated from the Clark School of Business in Topeka. She then went to work for the Kansas Department of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) as the secretary to the State Adjutant-Quartermaster. After four years at that job, she transferred to the First Baptist Church in Topeka. There she served as the secretary to the Pastor, as well as the financial secretary and editor of the weekly newsletter. After six years at that job, Sue and her family moved to Manhattan. In Manhattan, while Sue’s three boys were small, she left the workforce to care for her family. Sue then went back to work at the Pawnee Mental Health Association at their secretary/receptionist. After a short time there, sue moved up to the Wharton Manor Nursing Home, becoming their prize receptionist/ office clerk for five years. In 1994, Sue again moved up, this time to Kansas State University, where she remains today. While there, Sue has worked as an administrative specialist in the Cooperative Extension Director’s office. Sue’s attitude and performance have prompted her nomination and receipt of a Classified Employee of the Year Award. A quote from one nominator is, “It is her unfailing commitment to her work responsibilities and her cheerful willingness to help others that make her a truly outstanding gem among the Extension Administrative team.” Not only has Sue succeeded at her K-State position, she has also maintained a second job for the past 21 years. She works for CB Announcements, where she supervises college students who print graduation announcements for schools, most of which are universities. Probably the additional two parts of Sue’s life, of which she is proudest, are 1) her church, and 2) her family. She has been active member of the First Baptist Church in Manhattan for nearly 40 years. She has served on the Social Committee (we can understand that) and volunteered in the nursery, including working there on the day her youngest

son was born. And finally, and most importantly, Sue raised three sons, all who graduated from K-State. According to one son, “She allowed all of her children to follow their dreams, supporting them in so many endeavors.” In addition to her children and daughters-inlaw, Sue is the grandma of two granddaughters and one grandson. Given all of the above, it is easy to see the Sue qualifies for the 2016 Morrill High School Distin-

guished Graduate Award.

Larry Steiner

Larry L. Steiner born in Sabetha and lived in Morrill and attended the Morrill schools from 1947-1959 and currently lives in Lenexa. Larry grew up as a farm boy just outside of Morrill. While in school, he participated in sports, and was in the Morrill Tip-Top 4-H Club showing livestock at the local fairs and served as the club president of

the Brown County 4-H Council. Following high school, Larry went to Clark’s Business School in Topeka, graduating in 1960. Immediately thereafter, he started to work for General Motors in their computer department in Kansas City, Kan. After one year of work and going to IBM school in Kansas City, Mo., Larry started college while working full time for General Motors. Four and a half years later, Larry graduated from Kansas University in Lawrence. Larry continued in the computer business for a total of 14 years, being a partial owner of a computer service company in Kansas City. During this time, Larry was active with his sons in Cub Scouts and 3&2 baseball. He also spent eight years umpiring softball and 3&2 baseball, plus 15 years officiating high school football, and high school and college basketball. Following the sale of the computer business in 1974, Larry entered the Securities and Insurance business with the Estate and Business planning division of Connecticut General Life Insurance Company. He became a full time representative and producer in 1974. Two business certifications of Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant were earned from the American College in Byrn Mawr, Penn., during the next eight years. Larry was president of the Society of Financial Service Professionals of Greater Kansas City as well as a board member for 12 years. Larry spent 40 years with Connecticut General, later renamed Cigna Financial Advisors and eventually became a part of Lincoln Financial Advisors in 1998. (He never changed jobs after 1974). After working a total of 54 years, Larry finally retired in December 2013. Larry is married to his wife, Linda. They have six children (one set of twins), 19 grandchildren (two sets of twins) and eight great-grandchildren. None of the above work history would have been possible without the wonderful family support. Larry and Linda go south for a month each winter to try and avoid some of the cold. Larry enjoys golfing, watching baseball, football, and basketball. He is an active member of his Church having served in various capacities. He is also active in his Homeowners Association having served as treasurer. Larry’s advice to most is “stay active and it will keep you young.”

Pfc Harry Beatty Jr. was POW of Germans in World War II Private First Class Harry C. Beatty Jr. was an 18-year-old infantryman when he was captured by German Army forces less than a month before VE Day during World War II. PATTY LOCHER | CONTRIBUTOR

K i t B e a t t y ’s c o m p a s s , German phrase book and New Testament. He was allowed to keep these items while a POW of the Germans. Patty Locher | Contributor

Our company was on the south edge of the town. “Just as dawn broke we were attacked and overrun from several directions by tanks and supported by infantry. They stopped just outside the effective range of the bazooka and fired at us. Our artillery from across the river helped keep the tanks off us for a while. “Soon seven or eight of our squad found ourselves cut off from the company. We could see that other members of our battalion were also trapped and saw one shot down while surrendering. We took cover in a long fire trench with woods at our back and the river beyond the woods, but rifle fire was useless at this point. “A tank and an SP [author’s note: presumed to be an armored vehicle, possibly a Panzer tank] turned in our direction. The tank broke off to the right, but the SP came in laying down machine gun fire but then stopped. The hatch opened, a head popped out yelling something like ‘ôcommen zie roust you SOBs.’ [“Come on out, you SOBs.”] “Our bazooka man, Mike, asked if anyone wanted to surrender. No one did (or would admit to it) and he turned and yelled, ‘go bleep bleep kraut’ and fired a bazooka round and missed, then it seemed that all hell broke loose. “The SP fired a round that went over our heads – we felt the heat from it. Someone said ‘let’s get out of here and go for the river.’ We scrambled out, and a buddy and I were together and made it to the woods, how I’ll never know. They continued firing into the woods, but none of the German infantrymen followed. “Once we got to the river, the question was how to get across, the current looked awful swift. This was in the afternoon of the 14th…. We were at an unused boat dock and having no apparent options, we decided to swim across.” Harry is Captured On April 14, 1945, Harry and several others in his unit were captured by German Army troops at Schönebeck, upstream (south) from Magdeburg on the Elbe River. “Hände hoch!” (“Hands up!”), their captors exclaimed. Harry had in his possession a tiny knife, a “Restricted” German phrase book, a compass, and a New Testament, all of which, inexplicably, his captors let him keep. Harry still possesses these items. “March, march, march,” Harry remembers, remarking that his group of 105 POWs was on the move longer than they were held in any one location. He recalls walking on the Autobahn and traveling in a boxcar train for a couple of hours, “spiraling around” for 15 days as their captors tried to avoid Allied troops. “Losch, losch, losch,” Harry remembers their captors yelling frequently, in order to keep the POWs moving. [Author’s note: According to a bilingual friend whose native language is German, “In this case of a prisoner, ‘los, los, los,’ when used by a superior military person, is unfriendly and means ‘hurry up, go on, go forward, carry on, keepBrothers Duke, left, and Kit Beatty served in uniform at the same ing moving, do not go so slowly,’ or time.

or command.”] At Jüterbog, about 60 miles east of where he was captured, Harry threw his helmet away. “It was heavy and I didn’t need it anymore,” he said. Harry remembers peeling potatoes that the POWs and their German captors stole from fields. They also stole eggs from farms, he said. On April 29, 1945, they reached the prison camp at Laukau, Germany, about 30 miles east of Jüterbog and about 30 miles south of Berlin. [Author’s note: this prison camp may have been Luckau, which is in the same vicinity.] To keep the fire going to cook their food, the POWs invented and built a pulley apparatus from items they found in the camp. The apparatus had a blower (similar to a bellows) that was operated by a big wheel connected to a small wheel on a wagon or velocipede, similar to a three-wheel children’s vehicle later sold as a “tricycle” after it gained in popularity, Harry said. “In the camp, we POWs were given foot inspections, to make sure we were fit to march,” Harry said. “These were performed by a German doctor, assisted by an American medic who was parachuted in by the Allies on May 2, because the Allies knew they would make it to the camp by May 3 and had heard somehow about the Nazis’ orders to shoot the prisoners.” “The doctor and medic performed these inspections very slowly, to keep the Germans from marching us out and shooting us like Hitler had ordered!” he said. Harry said the POWs were treated fairly well, but they didn’t get much food. But, he added, their captors didn’t get much food either, as food was scarce in Germany after more than six years of waging war. The POWs were given “sawdust bread” that contained more sawdust than edible ingredients, to fill their stomachs while marching. Since the German troops didn’t have much food even for themselves, it is likely that they also ate this sawdust bread. The POWs were in camp for only five days before being liberated. Liberated and Processed On Thursday, May 3, 20 days after their capture and just five days before Victory in Europe Day (Tuesday, May 8, 1945), Harry and his fellow POWs were freed by American troops. They were trucked to Hildesheim and then flown to Nancy, France, on a C-47 aircraft. After the processing that was common for liberated POWs to get them cleaned up and deloused, they were trucked to LeHavre, France, from which they departed on a flat-bottom Liberty Ship on June 1. The ship arrived in New York on June 12, just one week after Harry turned 19 years of age. From New York, Harry went to the separation center for processing at Fort George G. Meade, Md. There he was given 68 days of temporary

Harry, who now goes by “Kit,” was born June 5, 1926, in Philadelphia, Pa., and was raised there. He has one brother, Charles (“Duke”), who is three and a half years older. Duke served in the Army Air Corps Band during World War II but did not deploy overseas. After Harry’s discharge from the Army, he returned to Philadelphia, where he attended college classes in night school at a high school facility. There he studied mechanical engineering for two years. He then received a letter from a friend who had gone to Texas, advising Kit to “come down to Houston,” because there were plenty of daytime openings in college there. Kit spent close to two years at the University of Houston, almost achieving a college degree. Then circumstances took him to Wichita, where he worked at Boeing for some time before going to a small die shop in Wichita, where they made tool dies for aircraft. He later designed assembly tools for Boeing. Eventually, in about the early 1960s, Harry moved to Topeka for a job at a temperature control company. In Topeka, he later worked for Seymour Foods, where he designed and improved egghandling equipment. After that, he worked at Essex Wire, where he maintained the manufacturing equipment. He then went to work in a dog food plant, where he worked on machines and in maintenance. While living in Topeka, he met Mary Mason Anschutz. Kit and Mary, both previously married, were married in 1972. Kit eventually became self-employed, repairing appliances, residential plumbing, and doing electrical work, for 25 years. Mary is a sister to Lois Hartter and Sharon Grimm, both of Sabetha, and on Sept. 29, 2014, Mary and Kit moved to the Apostolic Christian North Village in Sabetha. Just a few months later, due to health issues, Kit moved to the Apostolic Christian Nursing Home. Kit has enjoyed several skills and hobbies in his life, including hand balancing and fencing in his earlier years; chess, which was one of his favorites; and playing piano – mostly “light jazz” – for many years. “He had a really nice touch,” Mary said of his piano playing. “And he knew lots of songs by heart. He has tried over the last few years to take it up again but says his head and hands just don’t connect anymore. Makes me sad because I loved to hear him play.” A few years ago, Kit had the pleasure of participating in an Honor Flight to visit the World War II Memorial and other memorials in Washington, D.C. He said he enjoyed it very much, and it is one of his best memories. Kit has two children, four grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

duty/leave, which he spent at his paternal Aunt Madeline’s home in Willow Grove, Pa. While at Willow Grove, Harry went to an amusement park with an Army buddy with whom he had gone through basic training but found no noteworthy excitement there. “Riding the roller coaster was no big thrill after being shot at,” Harry said. Awaiting Discharge From Fort Meade, Harry was sent to a “fancy hotel” in Atlantic City, N.J. The War Department had lost his records, so for three or four days, he took tests and was interviewed to establish a new military record. During this time, he was able to spend his afternoons at the beach. Harry was then sent to Hampton Roads, Va., and was trucked to Camp Henry, Va., where he worked in payroll in the Finance Division for about four months. Everyone was paid in cash, he said, and he helped figure the amounts due to individuals. While at Camp Henry, Harry applied for Leave of Absence to go home for Christmas. Thinking his leave was arranged, he went home to Philadelphia, but after two days there, he received a telegram from a buddy at camp telling him to return to Camp Henry because the paperwork for his leave was fouled up. So he didn’t get to be home for Christmas, and he was threatened with court martial. He served company punishment and had to stay on base for two weeks. Harry later was transferred to the Special Services Department at Camp Henry, where he performed messenger work using different vehicles. He then was assigned to the camp theater, where he issued tickets and did some movie projection. Decorated and Discharged After serving a total of five months and five days of foreign (overseas) service, and one year, three months and 16 days of continental service, Harry was honorably discharged at Fort Meade, Md., with the rank of private first class on May 8, 1946, three weeks before his 20th birthday. Harry earned the Combat Infantryman Badge, Expert Carbine, Expert BAR, and Sharp Shooter M1 Rifle. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal, Distinguished Unit Badge, American Theater Ribbon, European-African-Middle Eastern Theater Ribbon and the World War II Victory Ribbon. Because of his lost records, his time as a prisoner of war is not reflected on his official separation paper, and he was not awarded a Prisoner of War Medal at the time. However, this omission was corrected this past Sunday, June 5, when U.S. Senator Jerry Moran presented Harry with a POW Medal and a U.S. Flag at a ceremony at the Apostolic Christian North Village in Sabetha.

no provides the following details: “From the perspective of the infantrymen involved, the Elbe River crossing was an operation that started in confusion and ended in confusion,” Ariano wrote.” Everything that could go wrong did go wrong.…We had left Liebenberg, Germany, on the morning of April 11 and literally barreled 60 miles [east] through the German lines to the Elbe River on the outskirts of Schönebeck. “The next morning we were clearing out resistance there when the company was abruptly withdrawn to Bad Salzemen. The word was we were stopping at the Elbe and the Russians would be allowed to take Berlin. However, late that afternoon, the battalion was alerted for an assault on the east bank…. “Finally our artillery began firing, and after an hour-long barrage, the 1st Battalion crossed in assault boats and our battalion followed. No provision was made to get armor or supplies across with us. The bridgehead itself was made with practically no contact with enemy…. “A pontoon bridge was started by the 17th Armored Engineer Battalion in the early morning to get our tanks and supplies across. Meantime we were expanding the bridgehead. However, German artillery was destroying the pontoon bridge as soon as progress was made in constructing it. Our battalion reached the town of Randau [on the west bank of the Elbe], then had to fall back because the 1st Battalion had been attacked by tanks and infantry and, not having armor for support, had to pull back. “That night (April 13) at about 2100 hours [9 p.m.], we had to abandon the bridgehead since the bridge couldn’t be completed, and it became obvious armor and supplies could not be ferried across the river to support us, and our position had become vulnerable. We were ordered to move south to the Grunewald and Elbenau area where the 119th Infantry was operating. “At this point we had been in constant operation since the 11th. We all were exhausted, and some men so bad off that when we stopped for a break, it took pleading to get them moving again. As we neared Elbenau before dawn, we saw that part of the town was ablaze and we had troops trapped there. It turned out these were elements of the 119th Infantry that we were supposed to link up with.

Harry “Kit” Beatty, now a resident of the Apostolic Christian Home in Sabetha, has a unique story to tell that few, if any, would envy. Only 17 years old when he enlisted in the U.S. Army, he experienced the life of a Prisoner of War (POW) in Germany, liberation from the POW camp, repatriation to the U.S. Army, and an honorable discharge, all before he turned 20. At the age of 17, Harry C. Beatty Jr. of North Philadelphia, Pa., enlisted in the Army on April 21, 1944. He did not enter active duty until Aug. 15, 1944, when, after attending one semester of college at Virginia Military Institute, he reported for basic training at Fort Wheeler, Ga. On Jan. 8, 1945, he departed for Europe from New York Harbor on Ile De France, a luxury liner converted to a troop ship, and on Jan. 19 arrived at Firth of Forth near Edinburgh, Scotland. Harry and company traveled by train to the east coast of England, then went via an LST (Landing Ship Tank) with a flat bottom across the English Channel to LeHavre, France, to the Replacement Depot. Assigned to Company G, 41st Armored Infantry Regiment (AIR), 2nd Armored Division, he traveled by train or truck to Verviers, Belgium, and from there by truck to Vaals, Holland. For about two days, he and others in his unit traveled back and forth between Vaals, and Aachen, Germany, putting bricks in holes in the roads to make them passable. His unit then moved east through Aachen deeper into Germany, where they fought in the daytime and traveled at night, sometimes walking through muddy fields. Harry remembers a few of the geographical locations through which they passed, such as Hildesheim (town) and Teutoburger Vald (forest area). Military Life Overseas While proceeding initially through newly liberated areas of Germany, Harry wrote in a March 26, 1945, V-mail to his aunt in Pennsylvania, “….I thought you might be interested in knowing about the Army’s ‘Non-Fraternization’ plan….for even talking to a german [sic], male or female, you can be fined 65 bucks…. We just have to look at the girls and sigh. At least we can look at them…” Unit Movement to Elbe River Crossing An account of the unit’s combat events by unit member Mike Aria-

If the number exceeds 18, the grades will not be combined. See more details beginning on Page 1A of this week’s Herald. Old Business Lippert presented a legislative update. She said the state’s June 1 revenues were down from estimates. It is estimated that the state will be a negative ending balance, Lippert said, per the most recent revenues. The Governor has until June 30 to pare down expenses by $55 million, she said. “There’s not shortage of fiscal concern at the state level,” Lippert said. Evans presented the board with information regarding the Gannon equity decision by the Kansas Supreme Court. For more information on this decision, see a story beginning of Page 1A of this week’s Herald. Evans told the board that the Kansas State Department of Education is waiting for clarification from the Court of what a “shutdown” could entail. It is the hope by school officials that “critical personnel” would be allowed to continue working, and bills could

continue to be paid. He told the board that it is important to think about the ramifications of a shutdown, and to pay attention to the news. Lippert said there is question regarding whether the Court has the authority to shutdown schools, based on a law passed during Governor Kathleen Sebelius’ tenure. Next, the board discussed early payment of the district’s lease purchase. The lease purchase originally was entered into in November 2009 at a rate of 3.970 percent with a principal balance of $857,759. Since that time, the district has been making annual payments of approximately $75,000 to $80,000. The rate increased to 4.97 percent in 2015 and is expected to increase again in 2019. According to Saylor, the district would save between $112,000 and $120,000 by paying it off early. Evans said, following last month’s meeting, he asked Dale Dennis if the district could use contingency funds to pay the balance, and he said it could. Evans said he suggests the district pay the lease purchase on June 15. The board approved early payment of the lease purchase in the amount of $594,375.02, splitting the payment equally between contingency and capital outlay. This figure includes the payment due in June. Next, the board revisited the request for repair of the Wetmore Academic Center’s gymnasium ceiling insulation. Two bids were presented, from AHRS for $74,772 and multiple options from F and L Construction ranging from $42,300 to $55,000 plus removal at $55 per hour. Kuckelman said he spoke to someone who does spray-on insulation and fireproofing, and he said it did not seem like the bids were out of line. He said the insulation does need to be scraped and cleaned before putting on new. Lippert said she does not believe this is a necessity and does not impede education. “There are a lot of unknowns in

our future,” Lippert said. “Doing something because it would look better is a nice thing, but it is not a necessity.” Lippert said she paid special attention to the ceiling during the graduation ceremony, and it was “just fine.” Reznicek said he believes it is probably too late to make a decision and get it done in time for school activities this year, and the item should be reconsidered next year. Kuckelman asked if there are any safety concerns. Boden said it is not hard, but it does fall down “all the time.” The board took no action on this item. Next, Saylor provided the board with a report on capital outlay funds, including what the district began with in the 2015-16 school year and what it will begin with in the 2016-17 school year. Saylor said the district still has a lot of flexibility with the capital outlay fund. Next, the board considered a bid for repair of the SES roof. Evans said the district got specifications on the roof and had two contractors give bids based on the specs. The low bid of $55,733 is from Meridian Roofing Solutions, for replacement of 11,279 square foot of roof with TPO. The board accepted the bid from Meridian. The board discussed replacement of the SES HVAC system. The proposed solution is to replace the 22-ton rooftop unit with a single zone, 7.5-ton rooftop unit and three separate mini-split systems for the three south larger classrooms. This provides a total of four units with four thermostats. Evans said he was told by the mechanical engineer that this seems like the cheaper option and easier for location contractors to work on it in the future. This option should also be more energy efficient, he said. Bids will be presented for consideration at the special board meeting June 21. New Business The board considered a propos-

al for exception to the Memorial Policy KGAB. The request is from the family of Tom Manning, who worked in the buildings at Sabetha for an extended time. The request is to donate a stone bench to be placed at the SES entrance. J. Scoby said he would like to see an exception made to policy to allow this memorial. Reznicek said it can be difficult to allow exceptions, because it is a fine line between the exceptions that are allowed and those that aren’t. L. Scoby it seems that a stone bench could be less care than a plant, which is currently an accepted memorial per the policy. Saylor asked if the planted items include any recognition. Evans said they do not. Lippert asked if something like a bench could be accepted, because — unlike a plaque — it is a useful item. “You can hit a capacity at which you do not need 50 stone benches sitting around, but do you have a need? This is a way to fill that need and provide for the memorial,” Lippert said. “When that need is met, you then cap it.” Evans said he has had previous conversations with Principal Gatz about a “Buddy Bench” on the SES playground. “This is a situation in which we could use a memorial to fit a need,” Lippert said. The board approved making an exception to the policy, with the provision that Evans speaks with the Manning family about placing a “Buddy Bench” on the SES playground in a material and at a location assigned by the principal. Next, the board authorized administration to approve dual credit courses, as deemed appropriate, taught by Highland Community College and Washburn Tech; accepted a bid of $1,100 from Tom Smith for the sale of Bus 98-2; accepted a vendor bid of $307,687.90 from U.S. Foods for 2016-17 food service; approved renewal of membership with Schools for Quality Education at a cost of $350; authorized Evans to close out the

FY 2016 budget; and approved a request to destroy financial records from FY 2009 and previous, per standard procedure. With the submission of two requests — one from SMS teacher Pete Schuetz and one from the Axtell Knights of Columbus — for use of district buses, the board revisited the mileage cost for school and non-school entities to use a bus. The board approved both requests, at the mileage rates stated on the requests. In the future, the board will set a policy differentiating types of entities and what the rates will be. The board heard an update on the USD No. 113 Foundation. Kuckelman said the funds at the Foundation are in CDs at the bank, and the funds are dwindling. The decision was made to move some of the funds to managed accounts with Edward Jones. The USD No. 113 Foundation also will be opening a fund with the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation as a way to gain publicity and let the public know they can donate to it, Kuckelman said. Board members Kuckelman and DeMint were re-appointed to serve on the USD No. 113 Foundation board for the 2016-17 school year. Also in new business, the board hired Sara Toedman to fill the position of SES Principal, left vacant by Gatz when she filled the district’s Director of Student Learning position. Toedman currently serves as counselor at SHS and WAC. See additional details in a future issue of The Sabetha Herald. The board set a special meeting to discuss SES HVAC bids, as well to establish potential action and necessary preparation for a shutdown. The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, at the district office in Sabetha. The board entered into executive session to discuss non-elected personnel for the purpose of discussing contracts. No binding action was taken. The next regular board meeting is slated for 7 p.m. Monday, July 11, at the district office in Sabetha.

cision or final decision in which a statute or legislative enactment of this state has been held unconstitutional as a violation of article 6 of the Kansas constitution, the appellate court or any master or other person or persons appointed by the appellate court to hear or determine a cause or controversy or to make or enforce any order or remedy ordered by a court pursuant to K.S.A. 60-253, and amendments thereto, or any other provision of law, shall not have the authority to order a school district or any attendance center within a school district to be closed or enjoin the use of all statutes related to the distribution of funds for public education.” This law was passed and signed into law by Governor Kathleen Sebelius during the 2005 special session following the Supreme Court’s threat to close school in the Montoy v. Kansas case. Agreeing with Garber, Pyle said the Kansas Supreme Court has “no constitutional or statutory authority to close schools.” “The Kansas Supreme Court has been reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court more times in the last eight years than any other state supreme court,” Pyle said. “With all this in mind, where does the Kansas Supreme Court find in the State Constitution the authority to close schools?” “To the contrary, the Court itself has found that the constitution guarantees students certain educational rights, so closing schools would deprive students of such rights and thereby violate the constitution,” Pyle said. “But even if the Court believes it has the right to do so, how are students

better served by depriving them of education as opposed to participating in a system where funding might…just maybe in the eyes of seven judges…be inequitably distributed by less than one percent of total funding? While what appears to be a power struggle continues between the Kansas Legislature and the Kansas Supreme Court, Prairie Hills USD No. 113 and other area school districts are in limbo, with school officials wondering whether to prepare for a potential shutdown. What a “shutdown” would look like is something that will need to be clarified by the Court, said Superintendent Evans. “Although it is an opinion, the

best guess is that the districts would still be allowed to pay bills — using money that we have saved in our carryovers,” Evans said. “In the extreme, it is within the scope of possibilities that we would be shut out of our offices and buildings and not allowed to do anything.” Evans said that USD No. 113 is following the advice of Craig Neuenswander, Kansas State Department of Education School Finance Team Director, in regard to whether the district should be making preparations for a potential shutdown. Neuenswander has indicated that at this time we should wait for further direction, Evans said.

Supreme Court threatens possible school shutdown FUNDING.1A education,” Pyle said. “Over half the state’s budget is spent on education. It has been demonstrated it is the will of the legislature to keep schools open.” House Representative Randy Garber, R-Sabetha, said he is “disappointed” that the Supreme Court “continues to attempt to legislate from the bench when they have no power to do so.” “This equity ruling sadly has nothing to do with the educational interests of students. It’s just another attempt to establish the Judiciary as the dominant branch of government,” Garber said. “It seems that education is taking a back seat to the Court’s determination to prove it can compel the Legislature to accede to its demands. This is known as judicial tyranny.” Legislators met Wednesday, June 1, to close to the 2016 legislation session, but did not address the Kansas Supreme Court’s ruling. Governor Sam Brownback can call the Legislature back for special session, but it was unknown whether he would, until on Tuesday, June 7, he issued a statement calling for a special legislative session to address threats by the Kansas Supreme Court to close Kansas schools. “After discussion with Legislative Leadership, I have decided to call a special session to keep Kansas schools open, despite the Court’s threat to close them,” Brownback said. “It is distressing that the Kansas Supreme Court has put the schools and legislature of Kansas in this position over less than 1 percent of school funding.” Brownback indicated that he is

working to arrange the particular dates of the session, but that it will occur later this month. Superintendent Evans said it seems that legislators are in a “challenging spot.” “Each of them swore to uphold the constitution of the State of Kansas,” Evans said. “Now that the constitution has been further defined, they are between a rock and a hard spot.” The bottom line, Evans said, is that the state’s schools must be supported. “The past actions of the legislature has reduced state revenue to the point that we are now $74.5 million below the already reduced level of projections for this year,” Evans said. “If we are acting in a way that is ‘unconstitutional,’ and ‘unconstitutional’ is wrong, we need to fix it. In order to fix it we need to increase our state’s revenue and subsequently support our schools.” About the Ruling On Feb. 11, 2016, the Kansas Supreme Court gave the Kansas Legislature until June 30, 2016, to cure the constitutional inequities created by the CLASS Act, which was enacted through SB 7 in 2016. In response to the Court’s order, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed Senate Substitute for HB 2655. Oral arguments were held on May 10, 2016, to determine whether HB 2655 cured the inequities identified by the Court. In a ruling issued May 27, 2016, the Court determined the legislature has cured the unconstitutional inequities in Capital Outlay. However, the Court held that HB 2655 failed to cure the “Local

Option Budget,” or Supplemental General, inequities. The Court also found that the “Hold Harmless” funds create additional inequities; the “Extraordinary Need” fund is unconstitutionally inequitable and insufficient; and that sever ability would worsen the inequities and prevent CLASS from operating appropriately. Pyle said that, while the Kansas Supreme Court is welcome to an opinion, it has a “pitiful record” when it comes to having decisions reviewed and reversed by a higher court. “Just look at how many of the latest cases reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court have been reversed,” Pyle said, citing the Carr brothers’ cases, in which the U.S. Supreme Court in January 2016 reversed the Kansas Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the death sentences of Jonathan Carr and Reginald Carr. “The U.S. Supreme Court ridiculed the Kansas Supreme Court for ‘time and again’ invalidating death sentences based on an incorrect view of the law. The opinion chastised the Kansas Supreme Court for ‘experimenting’ with the Constitution,” Pyle said. “The vote on the Carr brothers case was almost unanimous, with Scalia and Alito on the one hand and Breyer and Ginsburg on the other hand all agreeing that the Kansas Supreme Court had incorrectly applied the law.” School Shutdown? Garber said he believes the Supreme Court’s threat to close schools is prohibited by existing law, citing K.S.A. 2106(d). K.S.A. 60-2106(d) states, “As a part of a remedy, preliminary de-

School Board approves combo class, reduction of kindergarten SCHOOLBOARD.1A administration. After “hours of research, thought and consideration,” Evans presented board members with his recommendations. Evans recommended the board identify a number of students at Wetmore and Axtell that would be the breaking point for combination classes, such as combining if the two grades had enrollment of 18 or less together but split if 19 or more. Enrollment as of Aug. 5 would be the determining factor regarding whether an additional teacher would need to be hired. “After the research that has been done and learning more about the concept of combined classes, it becomes obvious that the district needs to establish a maximum number of students that will be acceptable for this option [combined classroom],” Evans said. “Based up on my knowledge at this point, I would establish that number at 18.” Evans recommended that the district consider only one combination class for the 2016-17 year, as a pilot project. He recommended the board consider fourth and fifth grades at WES, and Wetmore Academic Center Principal Janelle Boden would assign a teacher to the combination class. Evans also recommended that the board reduce kindergarten sections from four to three, which would result in two sections of 18 and one of 17 — as opposed to three sections of 13 and one of 14. This change would reduce SES needs for a teacher to one, and he recommended moving one Wetmore teacher to Sabetha. “If the choice is between a kindergarten class of 18 and a combined class of 18, it is logical and very educationally acceptable to have a kindergarten class of 18,” Evans said.

Following Evans’ presentation of recommendations, board members discussed the possible options. J. Scoby said he likes Evans’ reasoning. “We are down at Wetmore and running at a deficit,” J. Scoby said. “Anything we can do to alleviate that, we should do that. This is one way to do that.” J. Scoby asked if Evans had an update of enrollment figures. Evans said the most accurate update would be ready on Aug. 5, following enrollment Evans said Principal Boden has shared the number of students who receive instructional support and special needs students, and the board has seen those figures. J. Scoby asked if it would still be possible to combine multiple grade levels to keep classroom size below 18. Reznicek said he spoke to a number of teachers at that point, and he said he was told that students are much too aware of discrepancies to do that. It could be detrimental to students’ self-esteem, and parents could start taking students out of school, Reznicek said. Savings are good, Reznicek said, but “if we push it to much we may see those savings disappear when families leave.” Lippert said combining classrooms is not “new to the district.” Class sizes of eight or nine are what you see at private schools where parents pay tuition, she said. “We have to be fiscally responsible,” Lippert said. “We cannot have a class size of eight kids or nine kids. We cannot go down to Topeka and claim our funding is inadequate and then say, ‘Oh, by the way, we have class size of eight.’” In the long run, Lippert said, combining classrooms at Wetmore keeps the building viable.

“You want the building viable? Make the difficult decisions in the short run, and it stays viable in the long run,” Lippert said. Public Comment Earlier in the meeting, the board heard public comment from Corey Bloom of Wetmore, who read a letter he had prepared. Bloom spoke to the board about “taking a rumor to heart” of Wetmore losing “as many as 18 students” to combine classrooms without any solid information. Bloom said, by his count, Wetmore is only losing four students but gaining three. He asked if any of the board members had come to Wetmore to talk with teachers or families to learn more about how this might affect the students and teachers. “It is sad that a rumor and a deficit are all you are concerned about at the Wetmore School,” Bloom said. He questioned what the district’s savings is to be used for, since all district schools contributed to it. Bloom said he believes the district is fiscally sound. “Remember, our first priority and goal is to give all students the best education we can,” Bloom said. Motions and Votes L. Scoby motioned to reduce from four to three sections of kindergarten at SES. The board approved the motion 5-1, with Lippert opposed. There is a reason why we have four sections of kindergarten [at SES], so that there is not an overload at the level when students still need help going to the bathroom, wiping noses, tying shoes and things like that, Lippert said. L. Scoby motioned to combine fourth and fifth grades at WES for the 2016-17 school year. Reznicek said he believed clarification should be provided to set

a cap of 18 on the combined classroom. J. Scoby said he believes the enrollment figure should be flexible. Reznicek said he thinks the number of 18 is “sensible” and “clear.” Evans has done research and talked with teachers and administrators to come to his recommendation, Reznicek said. The motion failed 3-3, with L. Scoby, J. Scoby and Lippert in favor, and Reznicek, Saylor and Kuckelman opposed. Saylor motioned to combine fourth and fifth grades at WES for the 2016-17 school year, with a maximum number of 18. The motion passed 6-0. Lippert motioned that to combine the second and third grades at WES for the 2016-17 school year with a maximum number of 18. J. Scoby seconded for the purpose of opening discussion. He asked Evans to clarify combining second and third grades. Evans said the teachers he spoke with said the concepts being taught are very different. J. Scoby asked if there would be a combined paraprofessional for each combined classroom. Lippert said it was her understanding that any combined classroom would have a dedicated para. Evans said that a reduction of this position would result in an additional reduction of staff. “To do this, we would actually be letting someone go,” Evans said. “This is not feasible at this time.” L. Scoby said she would like to see the district start with the fourth and fifth combination and “see how that goes.” The motion failed 1-5, with only Lippert in favor.

Westar project continues WESTAR.1A larger size. While it won’t eliminate price increases, Penzig said, Westar expects the increases would be less than customers would experience from the individual companies. In addition, as both companies face a lot of retirements in the next few years, they will be able to manage that workforce transition as they need to recruit new employees. How does the sale affect current projects? Penzig said Westar will continue with any current construction plans, including plans to build a new substation and reconstruct lines in the Sabetha area. “We are committed to providing good quality service to our customers and projects like this are an important part of that commitment,” she said. Sabetha project Westar crews have been working on the low voltage line to Sabetha.

As this part of the project wraps in Missouri and Kansas with some up, crews will concentrate on re- 13,000 megawatts of power generaplacing the line to Bern. These tion and 10,000 miles of grid lines. lines are to be completed by the end of 2016. The rebuilt lines will follow the existing route, with some variances. Both lines will be constructed ALL or rebuilt with the least amount of GRAVE DECORATIONS inconvenience possible for homeneed to be removed owners and landowners along the from SABETHA and routes, Penzig said. ALBANY cemeteries by Work on the East Nemaha subThursday, June 9th station also has begun. Preparation of the substation site is nearly done. An eight-foot chain link fence topped with three strands of barbed wire has been installed, and work has started on the foundation. Tree trimming crews will continue work needed to clear paths for lines. The project will continue as planned, Penzig said.

6.5.16: Sabetha, 9 – Leavenworth, 1 H

After their season opener was rained out in Hiawatha on Friday, May 27, the Northeast Kansas League Sabetha Lady Jays High School softball team finally opened its season on Friday, June 3. Sabetha beat Falls City in a doubleheader by scores of 12-1 and 15-7, respectively. Game 1 The starting pitcher, Lexie Phillips, threw all five innings and only allowed only one hit and two walks, while striking out 13 batters. Brooklyn Bauman, Trista Argabright and Karlie Spielman, who each went 2-3 with an extra base hit, led the Lady Jays offensively. Bauman also scored three runs and had three RBIs, while Argabright and Spielman each drove in two. Kaitlyn Tinklin also went 2-2 in the game and drove in two runs. The Lady Jays won 12-1. Game 2 Spielman pitched all five innings for the Lady Jays in the second game and led them to their second victory of the evening. Spielman allowed only nine hits and seven runs. She never allowed more than two hits or runs in an inning, which kept Falls City from gaining momentum and allowed the Lady Jays to gain the 15-7 victory.

Take a rain check on roadside disturbances Submitted by Jared Wiklund Pheasants Forever’s public relations specialist As the spring nesting season transitions into the brood-rearing phase for ring-necked pheasants, “The Habitat Organization” is reminding landowners to minimize roadside disturbances – ditch mowing, haying, spraying and ATV operation – until Aug. 1 to protect upland birds and other wildlife. Roadsides remain an important habitat component for pheasants throughout their range, and a myriad of other wildlife also reap the benefits of undisturbed roadside habitat. Making the case for roadside wildlife “In the lean years before the Conservation Reserve Program, roadside ditches were a major source of pheasant production,” said Jim Wooley, director of field operations for Quail Forever and a lifelong upland game biologist with more than 40 years of experience. “We don’t seem to give roadsides the same consideration nowadays,” Wooley said. “This is a shortsight-

ed approach to wildlife management since roadsides are a very important component in the grand scheme of habitat – always have been and always will be.” Though pheasants and waterfowl are often seen along roadsides, few people realize the importance of roadside ditches to wildlife. Research has shown that up to one-third of all pheasants produced may come from this important habitat structure – an even more critical statistic for intensively row cropped regions where undisturbed grassland habitat can be sparse. Likewise, waterfowl nesting research has shown shorelines and roadsides contain the highest number of nests per acre. Roadsides form an extensive network of grassy corridors and provide nesting, brood-rearing and winter cover for pheasants and other wildlife. As urban sprawl and intensified agricultural demand have replaced pristine prairies, grassy roadsides oftentimes provide the only significant source of nesting cover for pheasants. What’s more? Roadsides also provide vital habitat for monarchs,

Pheasant Math: Best Scenario Pheasant nest initiation: May 1 Total of 12 eggs laid: May 13 Hatched eggs after maximum incubation period of 28 days: June 10 Wait period of three weeks for chicks to be flight ready: July 1 With an average nest success rate of 40 to 60 percent and re-nesting attempts needing time for all eggs to be laid, it’s easy to see why Aug. 1 is the recommend date to delay disturbance of roadsides. Pheasants Forever encourages landowners to consider the benefits for wildlife when making roadside land management decisions this spring/summer.

mallards, teal, gray partridge, grassland songbirds, native pollinators, honeybees, frogs and turtles. Just the facts In the Midwest’s northern reaches of the pheasant range, hens will make one to four attempts at nesting during the season, but will only hatch one brood per year. The majority of nests hatch by mid-June but up to 40 percent of re-nesting attempts hatch throughout July, stretching out the nesting season and highlighting the importance of delayed roadside

disturbances. By Aug. 1, the reproductive season is over for most pheasants with the exception of a few late re-nesting attempts. A nesting hen lays eggs at a rate of about one per day. Early season nests contain an average of 10 to 12 eggs, but each subsequent renesting attempt contains fewer eggs. The incubation period is 23 to 28 days and starts after all eggs have been laid. The hen remains very faithful to the nest, leaving only briefly to feed, and is therefore also vulnerable to mowing during this time.

Blueberry Crumble Muffins


Crumble Topping 3/4 c flour 1/2 c butter, cut into cubes 2 tbsp brown sugar


from the kitchen of Annie Deters

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin by lining cups with paper muffin/cupcake cups and/or lightly spray with a nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat milk, oil and egg until well mixed. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix until a batter just forms, it will be lumpy. Gently fold in blueberries using a large rubber spatula. Divide the batter even among the 12 muffin cups. Prepare the crumble: use a fork, pastry cutter, or your hands to smash together the flour, butter, brown sugar into a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle the crumble over the batter in each muffin cup. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.


Muffins 3/4 c milk 1/4 c vegetable oil 1 large egg 2 c flour 1/2 c sugar 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1 c blueberries, fresh or canned, rinsed and drained


Fun By The Numbers Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the number will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle.
