General Election slated for Tuesday AMBER DETERS Voters will have the opportunity to cast their votes Tuesday, Nov. 8, in the General Election. Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. A list of area voting locations is published on Page 7A of this week’s Herald. Photo identification is required to vote. Constitutional Amendment All Kansas voters will be voting on a Constitutional Amendment. The Kansas Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment, also known as Constitutional Amendment 1, is a legislatively referred constitutional amendment. A vote for this proposition would constitutionally preserve the right of the public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife that has traditionally been taken by hunters, trappers and anglers. This public right is subject to state laws and rules and regulations regarding the management of wildlife and does not change or diminish common law or statutory rights relating to trespass, eminent domain or private property. A vote against this proposition would provide for no constitutional right of the public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife. It would maintain existing state laws and rules and regulations governing hunting, fishing and trapping wildlife. Amendment 1 would permit the constitutional right to hunt, fish, and trap to be subjected to regulations promoting wildlife conservation and management. Furthermore, public hunting and fishing would be the preferred method of wildlife management under the amendment. If approved, the amendment adds a paragraph 21 to the Kansas Bill of Rights. The following text would be added: Right of public to hunt, fish and trap wildlife. The people have the right to hunt, fish and trap, including by the use of traditional methods, subject to reasonable laws and regulations that promote wildlife conservation and management and that preserve

David and Danielle Tegtmeier celebrate the opening of Liquid Art Winery and Estate. Capture by Kayla Stallbaumer



Making the most of each other’s talents, Bern native David Tegtmeier and his wife Danielle are thriving in their first year as developers and owners of Liquid Art Winery and Estate on the rocky, hilly slopes just west of Manhattan. AMBER DETERS Looking back, David Tegtmeier said he always had an entrepreneurial spirit. “I can remember starting my first business selling eggs when I was about 5 or 6 years old,” he said. “I had the chickens that laid the green and blue eggs, so as part of my marketing strategy to give me an edge over the competition, I would put one green or blue egg in every dozen. I would always sell out around town.” Growing up on his family’s farm near Bern — the son of Clint and Mary Tegtmeier — David says growing things always interested him. But

his interest soon turned to fascination with the growing of a non-traditional crop — grapes. His Uncle Mike and Aunt Mary Anne Wassenberg, who coown a handful of wineries in Virginia, fueled David’s fascination. “I can remember visiting the wineries as a kid, and loving the vineyard covered hillsides,” David said. “There is something about seeing vineyards on hills that sticks with you.” The Wassenbergs provided him with his first few winemaking books and starter home winemaking equipment when he was about 15 years old. LIQUIDARTWINERY.8A

Friday, October 30, 1891 Lost. A gold breastpin, on last Saturday evening, while out driving about town or on road going south from graveyard. Design, figure of bird in center with small white stone. Finder will be suitably rewarded by returning to H. W. Faragher, Sabetha, Ks. Hiawatha is to lose a number of prominent citizens through the removal of the Mutual Life Insurance Company to Topeka. This will be a loss both social and financial to the city.


Thursday, November 2, 1916 Dr. Hibbard has a new Ford. He uses it for business, week days, and his Velie Sunday. Adam Cramer lost his tools in the Padonia school fire where he had just completed the stucco work and was planning to start the plastering the morning after the schoolhouse burned. The Padonia folks commenced last week to rebuild the school. There has been no placing of the cause of the fire, further than it was set on fire, assuredly. But whether by accident, or design, is not know. Mr. Cramer had no insurance on his tools. There was a builder’s insurance on the school building.

Sabetha Community Building

The red brick school was built in the late 1800s and served as a school for many years. The Nursery School has lovingly preserved this landmark.


Russell Stauffer’s

Wednesday, October 29, 1941 Temple Sheldon, principal of the Sabetha grade school, says there are a number of boys in the junior high school who are energetic and need work to help buy school books and for other things. Mr. Sheldon would be pleased to hear from business men or householders who could employ these boys. He will be glad to act as an employment medium, and requests that persons having jobs get in touch with him at the grade school, telephone 129. Mrs. Myron Rogers left Sabetha Monday for Kansas City to visit her husband, who is at the University of Kansas hospital in Kansas City. Mrs. Rogers said her husband’s leg is to be amputated, this week at the place it was broken when he was injured last summer in a tractor accident south of Sabetha. Rogers was a patient in the Sabetha hospital from the time he was injured until last week, when he was taken to the Kansas City hospital in an ambulance.


Thursday, October 27, 1966 Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Bockenstette, II, of Topeka brought their one month old son to Sabetha to visit Mrs. J. A. Bockenstette who is the great grandmother of J. A. Bockenstette, III. She was prepared for this visit by having ready for the baby an unusual baby bed. It was ordered from New York City for the arrival of their first child, Edith, now Mrs. L. H. Steinman of Dayton, Ohio. This bed has been in use for her own family and has been loaned to the daughter for use for her three children.


Wednesday, October 30, 1991 A former Kansas City area resident’s appreciation for rural life is shown through a mural on a wall at Sabetha Manor. Bill Hickman, now of Sabetha, painted the 8-feet tall by 15-feet, 5-inch wide farm scene on a wall of the nursing home’s physical therapy room. The oil painting depicts barns, a silo, an emerging corn field and a little girl playing with kittens. A fence and trees complete the scene. Hickman moved to Sabetha about 15 months ago with his wife, Tammy, and their daughter, Jessica, now 14 years old. Hickman said that although he liked living in the city, some situations there were getting “too rough,” so they decided to move to a rural area. Jeff Romines, Sabetha High School senior, is recuperating at home following eye surgery Oct. 16 in Topeka for a detached retina. He is doing well and is expected to return to school and limited activities in two to three weeks.


Wednesday, November 1, 2006 Sabetha American Legion baseball fans can look forward to a spanking new facility for the 2007 season. Hermann Earthmoving has already begun the excavation on land adjacent and to the east of Keim TS. The Berwick road will border the field on the north. The lay of the land has already been altered dramatically, as the huge earth-moving equipment has moved tons of dirt around what was once an alfalfa field. Charlie Bestwick, dressed as Superman, and Erin Howard, dressed as a witch, were among the Sabetha Community Preschool students who Trick-or-Treated at several downtown Sabetha businesses, including The Sabetha Herald office, Monday morning and afternoon, Oct. 30. Other characters included pirates, cats, princesses, clowns, firemen, Power Ranger, martial arts, Spiderman, Little Red Riding Hood, and others.


November 2, 2016  |  The Sabetha Herald  |

opinion EDITORIAL Are these my only choices? Just before I sat down to punch out this editorial on the computer, I popped up the national news on the Internet. One of the headlines that caught my eye dealt with our old friends across the ocean, the country of Iran. Iranian president Hassan Rouhani chastised U.S. Presidential contenders Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, calling this election for the people of America as a choice between bad and worse. Now my first reaction was, “Which one of the candidates is the ‘bad’ and which one is the ‘worse?’” I think they are interchangeable with one another! This has been a very busy summer for me. I have done more traveling to foreign countries than ever before. I first traveled to New Zealand in mid-July. Upon arrival there, my host immediately began to question me about what was going on in the United States during the primaries. He stressed to me how much impact what goes on in American politics has on his country, and he was concerned. He was very dismayed at the two front runners in their respective parties. “Is this the best you Americans can come up with to lead your people?” he quizzed me. I just shrugged my shoulders and sadly admitted he was right on target with his summation of where we are as a nation in terms of our choices in this election. Next stop was six weeks later when I headed to South Africa. I had a lot of personal contact with a lot of individuals on this venture over a two-week period. Every single person stressed to me their concern with what they were observing during our election process. They also pointed out how important this election was to not only our country but the world as a whole. I was beginning to get the feel at just how much is at stake in this election. My friends in Africa also could not believe that out of all of our political participants, these two individuals came out on top! I could not have agreed with them more. I voted in my first presidential election in 1980, and if my math is correct this will be the 10th presidential election in which I am privileged to vote. In all of the previous elections, I had no problem casting a vote for one of the candidates. This election is a different situation for me, as I am sure it is for a lot of people. I am sure there are many people out there who have aligned themselves with one of the two choices, but I have to agree with many people out there that if these are the best two we as a nation can come up with, then our nation is in peril. I don’t think either of these two should be leading this great nation. Their negative attributes outweigh anything positive about themselves by a wide margin. If you have paid any attention to any of the debates — and I would blame you if you have not — it has been nothing but character attacks by both candidates. There has been very little talk about the important issues pertaining to this country. Quite honestly for myself, I have a hard time listening to either one of them talk because you cannot believe anything they say! I don’t think either of them can be trusted with the responsibility of running this nation. For me, it is no longer an issue of Democrat versus Republican leadership. I want someone who can be depended on to make the decisions that will sustain this great nation. Right now, we are the laughing stock of the world! I believe it is such a desperate situation in this election that I would be willing to give President Barack Obama another year in office if we could start the primary process all over again with new candidates! You have to know how desperate I believe this situation to be if I would say that, because I believe that President Obama has done way more harm than good to this nation! In church on Sunday, I was reminded that no matter what happens, God is still in control. I take comfort in that, but I have to wonder if God is wondering how we could mess this election up so badly by choosing these two! Tim Kellenberger Editor-in-Chief The Sabetha Herald

Smile! It might lead to happiness


hen I was a young teacher, a student said to me, “Mrs. Scoby, why do you smile so much?” I have never forgotten that because it caused me to think about why (I answered her by explaining I loved my job) and has caused me to smile more ever since! Smiling has a positive effect on people Lately, I have been smiling while I sing at church, and I feel so much more in tune to the words of the songs and the presence of God. I would suggest anyone try it! I taught a smiling lesson in psychology and the students learned that Japanese businessmen are required to take smiling lessons to

help improve their sales. Smiling doesn’t come naturally in many Asian cultures. While in China teaching English to middle school teachers, I was reminded Together of this. BY: LESLIE SCOBY, One student VICE PRESIDENT, told me that GREATER SABETHA she had never COMMUNITY t h o u g ht o f FOUNDATION smiling in class EXECUTIVE BOARD and after seeing me smile, she realized as a student how much seeing a smiling teacher changed attitude. She planned on trying it out in her classroom.

There is a reason to smile coming to the community on Nov. 25 when the Greater Sabetha Community Foundation sponsors its first Give To Grow Match/ Giving Day. A generous donation of $25,000 in matching dollars will be available to encourage giving to area projects and nonprofits. For 24 hours, online giving will be possible at www.givetogrowday. com and for 12 hours, a walk-in

location at 905 Main Street will be open for walk in donations. Nonprofit volunteers will be there to share with people what they do, who they serve and how they help make a better community or life for people. There are many reasons we have to smile – for real! The new waterpark, splash park, The Main Event, a thriving community foundation, many people becoming involved in civic projects! If you aren’t a “smiler,” I challenge you try it. And if you’re my age, it can greatly improve the sagging jowl syndrome, too! I can’t afford a facelift, but I can afford to smile!

Comparing protein costs KSRE offers Veterinary Feed Directive meetings Fenceline M

argins are tight for cattlemen and farmers this year. They are scrutinizing all purchases and, as good managers, they need to get the most bang for their buck! When comparing costs, they need to consider the cost per pound of protein, not just the cost per ton. There can be wide gaps, in the differences. The first step is to get the feed converted to an as-fed basis. This is the way feed is purchased. To convert the protein content from a dry matter basis to an as fed basis. Just multiply the percent protein by the percent of dry matter in the feed. For example, calculate the protein content of corn gluten that is 25.6 percent protein on a dry basis to an as fed basis. Assuming that corn gluten is 90 percent dry matter, multiply 25.6 percent by 90 percent. This will equal 23.04 percent on an asfed basis. Now compare the cost of two protein supplements. Compare 48 percent soybean meal selling for $352 per ton, and 25.6 percent Corn gluten that sells for $170 per ton. The calculation to convert the corn gluten was done up above, so we can now compare the two. First you need to know the pounds of protein in each feed.


So you multiply the percent protein time’s 2,000 pounds (one ton). 2000 X .48 = 960 pounds crude protein in soybean meal 2000 X .23 = 460 pounds crude protein in corn gluten Next calculate the cost per pound of crude protein. This is done by dividing the cost per ton, by the pounds of protein in a ton of feed. $352/960 = 36 cents per pound of crude protein in soybean meal. $170/460 = 37 cents per pound of crude protein in corn gluten. In this example, the lower cost per ton protein source (corn gluten) was actually the higher costs supplement when comparing on an actual cost per pound of protein. Although, it was only a penny, you can see the difference. Each time you are making a purchase, make this calculation. If you need more information, give me a call at the extension office.


roducers have a number of opportunities to increase their understanding of the impact of the veterinary feed directive (VFD) at meetings across Kansas this fall offered by K-State Research and Extension. “The veterinary feed directive will change the steps producers will need to take to provide antimicrobials in feedstuffs,” according to Sandy Johnson, extension beef specialist for KSRE. “Planning ahead will be key to adjusting to the new procedure,” she said. Jan. 1, 2017, is the date that all the changes associated with the new regulation will go into effect. To prepare, producers need to become familiar with the regulation and the associated procedures. K-State Research and Extension in cooperation with KSU College of Veterinary Medicine will be presenting information at a number of sites across the state to help producers, feed distributors and veterinarians understand the details. Meetings scheduled in the upcoming weeks include: • Nov. 22, 2 p.m., HCC Klinefelter Barn, 1774 230th St., Hiawatha, KS, 785-742-7871

On the Extension Line


• Nov. 22, 7 p.m., Nemaha Community Building, 1500 Community Dr., Seneca, KS, 785-336-2184 Meetings are being planned for additional locations across the state and will be listed at KSUBeef. org as details become available or contact your local county extension office for a learning opportunity in your area.

Control broadleaf weeds now!


s I walked across the lawn as the sun came up this morning, I saw them: cool season broadleaf weeds! In particular, the white clover and dandelion caught my attention. I shouldn’t have been surprised – it is that time of year! Through early November is a great time to implement broadleaf weed control programs in lawns. Dandelions likely started growth back in September with henbit and chickweed should be germinating in October. That means they should all be up and growing – yet are small and easily controlled with herbicides. Even established dandelions are more easily controlled now than in the spring because they are actively moving materials from the top portion of the plant to the roots in the fall. Products like 2, 4-D or combination products (Trimec, Weed-

B-Gon, Weed-Out) that contain 2, 4-D, MCPP and Dicamba are all good options. Herbicides will translocate to the roots as well, k illing Crops & pla nts f rom the roots up.

Fall tree color Fall means a change in leaf color from green to all kinds of shades of red, purple, yellow, orange a nd brow n. It h a p p e n s as the green color f rom ch lorophyl l is replaced by various other plant pigments. Sometimes, howe ve r, it doesn’t happen quite as vividly as we’d like! The reason we don’t have New England colors here is in part because we don’t have the same trees they do in the east. Certain oaks and maples there produce good color that ours don’t always mimic. A second reason is weather. Warm, sunny days and cool

nights are what makes for good color. Sunny days encourage photosynthesis and sugar accumulation in leaves. As fall progresses, each leaf develops an abscission layer at the base of the leaf that prevents these sugars from being transported down the trunk to the roots for storage. If we can keep the leaf’s sugar content high, we can get some intense colors! On the other hand, cloudy days and warm nights tend to prevent some of the sugar accumulation in the leaves and results in less vibrant colors. Heavy rains in the early spring or hot, dry weather during the summer can both have a deleterious effect on fall color as well, even though those weather extremes are often long forgotten by fall. Enjoy the colors while they last! Once frosts and freezes set in, the colors (other than brown!) will likely be short-lived!

Dear Editor, I enjoyed your editorial about what it takes to make up and publish The Sabetha Herald each week. What a terrific and detailed job you “youngsters” do. I, for one, admire and appreciate your very good work. Thank you. You did forget to mention one thing that takes your time and effort - helping people like me learn how to receive your digital edition, which I love to have appear in my brand-new computer world! (Yes, I am 87 and just purchased my very first computer this past February.) I don’t know how many times Amber [Deters] e-mailed me, helping me to learn the process. So again, thank you for your time and effort to keep me informed about my beloved home town and people! Cleta Rokey Springfield, Oregon

Reader appreciates local newspaper

Dear Editor, I read the editorial today regarding certain members of the community criticizing what is in the paper. I wanted to let you know that I appreciate all the staff does to keep our small community abreast of news. In today’s times, we are fortunate just to have a local weekly that catches us up on the latest happenings in our community. I’m sorry you have to deal with those that are so short sighted. You all do a wonderful job. Keep up the good work. Jesse Mitchell Sabetha

Celebrate Veterans

Dear Editor, In just a few weeks, we will be celebrating Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 11. I would like to encourage Sabetha citizens to avail themselves of some activities that take place on that day. The Buzz Cafe serves a breakfast for all veterans and spouses at 7 a.m. to get the day started. We then go over to the war memorials on the east side of City Hall, lay wreaths, sing the national anthem and have a prayer remembering all the men and women who have served in the armed forces. I believe the grade school also has a program honoring our vets and at 4 p.m. the Boy Scouts from Troop 77 will hold a flag burning ceremony at the mound of Sabetha cemetery. The ceremony is very moving and interesting, and is open for anyone who would like to attend. So, take some time from your busy day and enjoy one or all of the activities being planned. What a wonderful way to honor those who spent time in military service and thank them for the sacrifices they made, so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have. Kathie Tramp, Secretary Sabetha Cemetery Association

Trump, really?........Really!

We are about to change the course of our country on November 8th. We can choose to stay the course that has declined this country in the past eight years, and will ultimately lead us further into the socialist type of government that our current administration believes is part of a “One World Government”. We are becoming a socialist government where the people are not represented, where elite politicians sellout our country to the highest bidder for favors and power. Let’s take a short look at where we have been this past eight years. We now have the highest unemployment, including those workers that have given up looking for jobs. We have some of the highest murder rates in our large cities. These cities for decades have turned a blind eye to gangs, drugs and the plight of the poor. We now have the highest debt in history, a debt our grandchildren will be left with. We have a country that no longer is a leader, but “leads from behind”. Our world allies no longer trust us or can count on us. Our enemies are laughing at us and no longer fear us. In the past eight years we have had more government regulations put on small and large business and family farms through government agencies that are dictated by the administration. We now have a health care system in shambles. The high cost for insurance premiums with high deductibles put a burden on young families. We have declined in our morals with the most corrupt government officials in history. Government agencies now work against the public to cover up and promote lawlessness; from the administration, the Secretary of State, the FBI and the IRS. If this is where we want to remain and decline further as a nation, and support what President Obama has done to this country, vote for the status quo. Now, let’s take a look at what we as Americans can do to change the decline in our country and our values. We have had over a year to go through the process of choosing a presidential candidate in an open election. Whether Donald Trump was your first choice or not, he has won the right to be the candidate to oppose government and media corruption. Trump is a successful businessman that has developed world class real estate projects in this country and abroad. He has employed and conferred with the best and brightest in our country. He has been a success in business and in raising a good and upstanding family. He has a “can do” attitude and will bring this country back to being “Great Again”. The leaders he will put in charge will not be the academia elitists, but will be proven professionals who have worked in successful businesses and current political leaders who have respect for the people of this country. Donald Trump, knows what it will take to keep our business producing and employing people in our country in order to get the unemployed back to work. Trump will get the best minds available to destroy ISIS and hold off illegal immigrants who want to take advantage of our citizens and our generosity. Trump will bring back competition by allowing private insurance companies to insure lower insurance premiums. He will rebuild a health system that will provide the best care for our veterans. Above all, Donald Trump will appoint to the Supreme Court, judges who will uphold the Constitution and protect all Americans, from the unborn to the elderly. This election is not about whether you are a Democrat or Republican. This election is about whether you want to turn a blind eye to corruption and the socialization of our country, or, if you want to return our country to being a prosperous and respected leader in the world that will respect the welfare of all Americans. You make the choice. Vote! Ray Shinn Seneca, Kansas Paid for by Nemaha County Republican Party Ray Shinn, Chairman

Submitted by Samantha Pollard The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to give blood to help stock the shelves before the busy holiday season. A blood drive is scheduled from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at Wetmore Legion Hall, 282 Second Street in Wetmore. Many regular donors delay giving between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day because of holiday activities. This often causes a drop in donated blood available for pa-

tients. Therefore, more donations are needed in the weeks leading up to the holidays to help ensure the blood supply is sufficient through the winter months. For blood donor Katie Osorio, giving a little bit of time is worth it because she’s giving someone a chance at life. “Someone’s mother, brother, sister, father or the love of someone’s life has been given back to their loved ones all because I gave something that I could. It takes so

little from me and gives a world back to another,” she said. To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors are encouraged to make appointments and complete the RapidPass online health history questionnaire at to save time when donating.

Submitted by Kitra Cooper The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the availability of a streamlined version of USDA guaranteed loans, which are tailored for smaller scale farms and urban producers. The program, called EZ Guarantee Loans, uses a simplified application process to help beginning, small, underserved and family farmers and ranchers apply for loans of up to $100,000 from USDA-approved lenders to purchase farmland or finance agricultural operations. “Over the past seven years, we have been transforming our loan programs at USDA so that they can be attainable and useful to all kinds and sizes of producers,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “These EZ Guarantee Loans will help beginning and underserved farmers obtain the capital they need to get their operations off the ground, and they can also be helpful to those who have been farming for some time but need extra help to expand or modernize their operations. USDA’s Farm Service Agency has offices in nearly every county in the country, and we encourage all farmers, including those in urban areas, to stop in

and inquire about this program.” USDA also unveiled a new category of lenders that will join traditional lenders, such as banks and credit unions, in offering USDA EZ Guarantee Loans. Microlenders, which include Community Development Financial Institutions and Rural Rehabilitation Corporations, will be able to offer their customers up to $50,000 of EZ Guaranteed Loans, helping to reach urban areas and underserved producers. Banks, credit unions and other traditional USDA-approved loaners, can offer customers up to $100,000 to help with agricultural operation costs According to the 2012 Census of Agriculture, 75 percent of all farm operations gross less than $50,000 per year. EZ Guarantee Loans offer low interest rates and terms up to seven years for financing operating expenses and 40 years for financing the purchase of farm real estate. USDA-approved lenders can issue these loans with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) guaranteeing the loan up to 95 percent. USDA is providing a 90-day period for the public to review and comment on program improve-

ments. To review program details, visit, reference RIN 0560-AI34 and follow the instructions to submit comments. More than half of all FSA loans go to new farmers and more than a quarter to underserved borrowers. FSA also offers loans of up to $5,000 to young farmers and ranchers through the Youth Loan Program. Loans are made to eligible youth to finance agricultural projects, with almost 9,000 young people now participating. More information about the available types of FSA farm loans can be found at farmloans or by contacting your local FSA office. To find your nearest office location, visit USDA’s EZ Guarantee Loans are an additional tool to support strong local and regional food systems, as well as organic agriculture.

Bern native, wife celebrate realization of dream by opening vineyard, winery near Manhattan LIQUIDARTWINERY.1A “I became fascinated with the chemistry of winemaking, and growing grapes goes along with it,” David said. “I had many people tell me grapes wouldn’t grow well in our part of Kansas, so I had a challenge as well.” Just as the boy in The Carrot Seed sets out to show everyone that his carrot will grow, at age 16, David set out to prove the naysayers wrong by planting his first vineyard on his family’s farm. It was that vineyard, and learning the process to make his first wines, that planted in David the desire to one day own his own vineyard and winery. “My parents raised me to be ambitious, and with the mentality that I could do anything if I worked hard enough at it,” David said. “They never held me back and supported me no matter what it was I wanted to do. So I think I probably had it in my head even back then that I would have a winery someday.” That spirit would one day grow into something more, and inspire his future wife. Danielle (Dugan) Tegtmeier — the daughter of Mark and Shirley Dugan — says her interest in the wine industry was sparked by David’s passion. Raised in Goddard, a suburb of Wichita, Danielle headed off to Kansas State University to get a degree in education. But after meeting and falling in love with David, she switched to business marketing. “We had the plan that one day he would make the wine, and I would sell it,” Danielle said. But having an idea and turning that idea into reality are two separate things, so what is it that sets David’s and Danielle’s story apart from so many others? The couple says it is a combination of natural tendencies, combined with their upbringings, that made them willing to pursue — and capture — their dream. David said his parents were business owners growing up, along with being farmers, which he describes as being a multitude of businesses in itself. “My parents never told me I couldn’t do something,” David said. “They just made me do it myself and work at it.” David also describes grandparents on both sides as business owners, including his grandfather Leonard Wassenberg and grandmother Dana Tegtmeier. “My grandfather Leonard Wassenberg was a successful self-made business man with only an eighth grade education, and my grandmother on my father’s side, Dana Tegtmeier, started and owned her own traveling tour business for a lot of years as I was a kid growing up next door,” David said. “I think having hardworking driven people around me growing up, and the freedom from my parents to believe anything was possible, is what got me here,” he said. “We are a product of those who come before us. I am the best of all those people who raised me.” “They [my family] taught me good things don’t come easy, and working hard and keeping a sound head on your shoulders while working toward a goal is how you get ahead in life,” David said. “That’s all we have done, really.” Learning to work hard and work through problems came in handy when the opportunity arose in

Dreaming of Starting a Business? The Sky’s the Limit. Here are David and Danielle’s tips for others with entrepreneurial dreams. — — — —

Keep pushing toward your dream. Think things through, and have a good plan. When it seems like it won’t work out, just try a little harder. Don’t be afraid to take a risk.


2014 to finally purchase land — 160 acres just west of Manhattan — for a vineyard and winery. The property was exactly what David and Danielle had been looking for. Set up high on a rocky hillside, almost everything around the property was lower than the highest point, ideal conditions for growing grapes. “One of the biggest problems to grapes in Kansas is frost,” David explained. “Cold air is heavier than warm air and will settle into low areas. Being higher up than things around us protects the grapes from that here.” The hillsides also are southsoutheast oriented, which allows for a longer growing season. “We also have lots of rock, which acts as a heat sink with the sun and keeps the vines warm at night,” David said. While the property was perfect in all the ways that mattered, it would still require a lot of work to make it what it is today. And that work always involved either David or Danielle, or both. “We have put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this, so seeing people come out here and thoroughly enjoying it is pretty neat,” David said. David and a local Manhattan man spent months clearing more than 100 acres of overgrown cedar trees. More than 40 gigantic brush piles were burned in the winter of 2014, after which David ripped the ground in three different ways with a bulldozer to uproot all of the cedar roots and prepare the land for planting. In order to plant the 10-acre Estate vineyard, the couple then trenched more than five miles of underground irrigation, as well as 10 miles of drip line irrigation — enough for every row in the vineyard. Also prior to planting, more than 1,000 wooden posts and 2,500 steel posts were driven into the rocky ground by hand. “When you grow up on a farm, you learn to figure things out,” David said. “I don’t really fear taking on any new task. Nowadays, it is just a matter of if I have the time to take it on and figure out how to do it versus paying someone else who already knows how!” After clearing the land, in the spring of 2015 the Tegtmeiers planted grapes on 10 acres — about 7,000 vines total, with 10 linear miles of vines on trellis. Then, in August 2015, ground

work began on the tasting room and event center. David was the general contractor on the job, and the couple was on site nearly every day, as they did as much work themselves as they could. When the work was complete, the Tegtmeiers were finally ready to share their property — and their wine — with the public. But those first grapes from the Estate vineyard still have two more years before they will be harvested for the first time, David said. With those grapes not yet ready to become wine, many might wonder where the Tegtmeiers get the produce for the wine they already are making. The answer? That very first vineyard on his parents’ farm, and a few others like it, as well as other vineyards around the state that David manages. With the wine from those vineyards — as well as an assortment of hard ciders — the Tegtmeiers opened their vineyard, tasting room and event center to the public this past spring. Two meadows, surrounded by vineyards, on the property also offer outdoor venues for ceremonies. “The community is really happy to have us here, and we are really happy to be here,” David said. The Tegtmeiers make decisions as a team, but they also each have their niche in the business. While David is in charge of the vineyard and winery, Danielle is in charge of the event center, sales and marketing. “When we are setting up for an event, she is my boss. When we are in the winery and in the vineyard, I am her boss,” David said. The couple met when they were freshmen at Kansas State University, and they were married in 2011. “We work well together, because we know each other’s strengths and weaknesses very well after being together since we were 18 years old — nine years now.” So far, the new business has capitalized on word of mouth to draw in customers and events. “We are an interesting business that the scale is unlike anyone has ever done in this state, and that leads people to talk about us more I guess,” David said. “Word of mouth is our best friend, and right now most of it is good word of mouth, which makes us happy.” Liquid Art Winery has hosted numerous events — mostly weddings, but also a few fundraisers

and corporate events. “The wine is flowing fast!” Danielle said. “We have had a lot of weddings so far and we have a lot more to go!”

— From Vine to Bottle —

Winemaking starts with growing quality fruit. In comparison to traditional Kansas crops, David says, the process of growing grapes is extremely labor intensive. His plan is to build all future vineyards to be machine maintained, allowing grapes to be grown on a large scale. Also, in Kansas most areas cannot grow the varieties of grapes — Vitis vinifera — used to make fine quality wines, and instead grow hybrid varieties that are a cross between wild vines and vinifera, David says. “I am trying to change that,” David said. “I left Kansas to gain the proper education in wine and grapes to one day bring it back to Kansas.” After going to K-State for a few years, David transferred to California State University in Fresno, Calif., where he graduated with degrees in enology — the chemistry of winemaking — and viticulture — the science of growing grapes. He also studied and worked at a winery in Bordeaux, France, to deepen his understanding — something he and Danielle agree gives their winery an edge. “We are growing varieties that no one else does in this area, like Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and other European varieties,” David said. After the grapes are grown and harvested comes the easy part, right? Not so, David says. “Making wine is extremely complex when done on a large scale,” David said. “When you are home winemaking, things are much simpler. If the wine goes bad, you are only out a few gallons. My fermentations are thousands of gallons in size. If something goes wrong, that is a big hit!” A lot of chemistry and microbiology comes into play on a daily basis for each wine over its lifetime, to the bottle and even after until it is opened and consumed, David says. “There are a lot of yeast molds and bacteria that love to destroy grapes on the vine, juice and wine,” David said. “The game is battling them, while making the wine complex, great tasting and stable at the

same time.” It is these complexities that first fascinated David with the winemaking process. “It is always changing, and it is always different,” David said. “Two degrees difference during one day of fermentation can cause one wine to taste totally different due to the chemical interactions taking place at that temperature.” Once the grapes are harvested, they are crushed to break open the skins. For red wine, the skins of red grapes are fermented. For white wine, the juice is pressed off the skins of white grapes. A rose or blush wine is red grapes that are not fermented on the skins, so the wine picks up a little color from the skins. “The actual fermentation only takes a few days to a few weeks, but then you have months or years of processing and aging before ever making it to the bottle,” David said. “Each wine goes through in-depth chemical analysis, multiple fining and stabilization treatments, and filtering at all the different aging processes and eventually into the bottle.” It is this process and all of the complexities that really make it an art form, the couple says, thus leading to the naming of their vineyard and winery — Liquid Art. “Winemaking is chemistry on so many levels, but it is because of these extremes that it is also an art,” David said. “We use chemistry and microbiology to allow for better painting of the wine as an art.”

— Forward Thinking —

The Tegtmeiers future plan involves planting additional acres on the Liquid Art property, capping it at about 50 acres. But, the couple doesn’t want to stop on their own property. Just as David’s first vineyard did on

his family’s farm, it is the couple’s dream to see even more vineyards flourish across Kansas. In addition to Liquid Art Winery, the Tegtmeiers are starting a new business venture — the first of its kind in the Midwest — a Vineyard Development and Management company. “There are a lot of people in Kansas who have property and would like a beautiful, profitable vineyard on it,” David said. “We can make that happen.” The company is seeking gentle, sloping south oriented hillsides on which to plant vineyards across the state. The vineyards will be mechanized and on a large scale, and will utilize technology David has developed and patented allowing them to grow grape varieties no one else can in this area. This venture would allow property owners to take hilly pasture or CRP land that was previously making $25 to $50 per acre annually, and boost its earning to $5,000 per year after the vineyard has been established, David says. The company would do all of the building, planting and harvesting — also guaranteeing the purchase of fruit for the Liquid Art Winery. The property owner would only need to be willing to make the initial investment in establishing the vineyard. David encourages anyone interested to contact him to evaluate and build a custom plan for the location. “I see the potential for it here, even though most others in the wine industry would not think twice about trying it,” David said. “I want to build a new future for Kansas vineyards and wineries. It’s not as easy to do this business here, but that’s part of the fun. Good things shouldn’t come easy, and I like a challenge!”

Bluejays take care of business at Riverside PETE SCHUETZ | CONTRIBUTOR The final regular season football game came to the calendar last Friday with the 7-1 Sabetha High School Bluejays traveling to Wathena to take on the 3-5 Riverside Cyclones. The Cyclones had Big Seven wins over Perry, ACCHS

and Jeff West, but were blanked by Nemaha Central, 53-0, in week 8. “We took care of business early, and that allowed every one of our players to get some important varsity play,” said Head Coach Garrett Michael.

This contest was all Bluejays as Sabetha took home the victory, 58-6. Sabetha worked up a 27-0 lead through the first quarter with two touchdowns by Trae Snyder, and one each for Zach Edelman and Blake Plattner. Snyder scored on an 11-yard run early in the contest,

and after an Eric Renyer fumble recovery on defense, Edelman punched it in from two yards out to give the Jays a 14-0 advantage. Elliott Strahm put his paw in the way of a Cyclone punt to block, and Snyder scooped it up and ran it in from 10 yards out for the score. Plattner scored on a 29-yard SHS Football

Cardinals wrap up season with loss to Wakefield HEATHER STEWART The Wetmore High School Cardinals hosted the Wakefield High School Warriors on Thursday, Oct. 27, for their last home game of the 2016 season. The first quarter was a close game, but the Warriors ran away from the Cardinals in the final three. Wetmore lost 6-52. “We played hard, but Wakefield’s size and speed was too much,” said Head Coach Rick Schnacker. “The boys deserve credit for their efforts tonight. We played with heart and determination.” During the first quarter, junior Ethan Osterhaus was able to get Wetmore on the board with a touchdown, but Wakefield fought back and managed a touchdown and a 2-point conversion. At the end of the first quarter, the score was 6-8, Wakefield. The second and third quarters got away from the Cardinals, and the Warriors tacked on an additional 30 points in the second and 14 in the third. At the start of the

fourth quarter, the score was 6-52, Wakefield. With a running clock during the fourth, the Cardinals stepped up the defense to hold their opponents scoreless during the last frame. “I am proud of these boys and their season,” Schnacker said. “They deserve much credit as well as our community.” WHS Football

WMS volleyball team earns third at League tournament Submitted by Dakota McQueen WHS Student Correspondent On Oct. 8, the Wetmore Middle School volleyball team loaded up the bus and started their journey to Oregon Trail League (OTL) volleyball at Nemaha Central. Earlier in the week, Head Coach Connie Hutfles said, “I’m waiting to tell the girls what they are ranked and which teams are in their pool. I don’t need them worrying all week.” Going into the tournament, Wetmore was ranked second with a record of 10 and 2. For the first round of pool play, Wetmore was faced up against Saints Peter and Paul School. The two sets flew by, and ended with the Cardinals taking over the Trojans, 25-18 and 25-21. The next opponent was Onaga. The first set was a brutal one, and the Cardinals topped the Buffalos, 25-9. The second set wasn’t as easy as the first and it was a fight to the top. Wetmore ended up winning 25-21, winning the match. The last game of pool play ended up being one of the toughest fights for the girls. Facing Nemaha Central, the girls struggled in serving, which hurt them. The Thunder came out solid and beat the Cardinals 25-10

Submitted by Kristina Castillo Sporting their “Tackle for a Cure” T-shirts, the Sabetha Middle School cheerleaders joined the Sabetha High School cheerleaders on Friday, Oct. 7, during the football game versus Atchison County Community High School. Annually for the past five years, the SHS cheerleaders have sold pink Tackle for a Cure t-shirts, with profits benefiting the Caring Neighbors Cancer Fund. During half time of the football game, senior cheerleaders Ashton Buser and Emily Strathman invited Caring Neighbors Cancer Fund representative Flora Kirwan to the track to present her a check. The cheerleaders donated $750 to the fund. “The money goes to a great cause,” Buser said. This year, the annual fundraiser coincided with the cheer clinic for the middle school girls. Eleven middle school girls attended clinics on Tuesday and Thursday, Oct. 4 and Oct. 6, to learn a variety of material to perform at the game on Friday night. The SHS cheerleaders taught the middle school participants a dance, cheers, chants, jumps and stunts. “My favorite part about the cheer clinic was learning and doing the stunts,” said Madelyn Wehner, eighth grade participant. Stunting is a popular favorite. “My favorite part of the clinic was definitely stunting, because I felt really safe with such amazing bases and backspot,” said Emma Schilling, seventh grade participant. Oftentimes during the clinic, bonds begin to develop between the high schoolers and the middle schoolers. “My favorite part [of the clinic] was bonding with the [middle school] girls and getting to see their crazy personalities,” Buser said. “I enjoyed working with [sophomores] Ashten Halls and Abby Hinton the most,” Wehner said. “I liked working with Abby [Hinton] the most because she was so fun and supportive,” said Trinity Detweiler, sixth grade participant. On Friday, Oct. 7, the middle school girls joined the high school cheerleaders for every timeout and quarter. “The [middle school] girls can see what it is like to be a high school cheerleader. They got the opportunity to cheer with us on the sidelines the whole game,” Buser said.

During half time, the entire group performed a dance, accompanied by the SHS Bluejay Marching Band, directed by band instructor Katie Topp and drum major Karrington Payne. The song was compilation of the Beatles songs, “Magical Mystery Tour” and “Hard Day’s Night.” This year, the cheerleaders all used pink poms during the game. “My favorite part on Friday night was doing the dance with the pom poms,” Detweiler said. “October is breast cancer awareness, so we used pink poms to raise awareness and support breast cancer survivors,” Buser said. The dance was choreographed by Buser and junior Samantha Edwards. “My favorite part on Friday was performing the dance,” Wehner said.

and 25-12. It wasn’t the end for the Cardinals, since they finished second in their pool. Finally, they were placed in bracket play, where they were set to face Frankfort. Again, the Cardinals struggled with serves and were mentally upset from their recent loss. The Wildcats beat the Cardinals in two sets — 25-11 and 25-15. Upset over their two recent losses, the Cardinals were out for blood as they played for third against Doniphan West. It was a battle for both teams as the game ended up going three sets. Down to the wire, the Cardinals were up 26-25. Upon the Cardinals’ serve, the whistle blew, signaling Doniphan West was out of alignment. The Cardinals won the game 27-25. Coach Hutfles, who was aided by assistant coach Stacy Honas, is proud of her team. “This was one of the most talented groups of athletes that I have Sabetha High School Cheerleaders Abby Hinton and Reggie coached in quite a while.

“My favorite part of the game was cheering with my friends,” Schilling said. Since the middle school does not currently have a cheerleading program, the middle school clinic helps to give girls a taste of what they might expect if they choose to try out in high school. “I plan to try out for cheer next year when I enter high school,” Wehner said. Detweiler is only in sixth grade, so she still has plenty of time to decide about cheerleading. “I am still torn whether to do basketball or cheerleading in high school,” Detweiler said. “I will for sure go out for cheerleading because I love cheerleading

It is as easy as duck soup! That is an expression that I used to hear people utter all the time. Though it has been a long time since I have heard it used in a conversation, it crossed my mind as I was preparing for this article. Have you ever made duck soup? I sure have not and I know my wife has not, because I would have remembered it since I am not very fond of eating duck. Evidently, duck soup is easy to make. After a little research, I found that it is a phrase that originated in 1902 and was referring to something being a cinch to occur. Well, it is appropriate to use this phrase then in reference to going duck hunting. This past weekend saw the opening of this year’s duck season for this area. The Low Plains Late Zone season opened up on Oct. 29, and will run through Jan. 1, 2017, and from Jan. 21 through 29, 2017. In case you have not been paying attention, there have been quite a few ducks in the area already. Every little cold snap that comes down from the north will push a few more early migrants our way. Later in the year, the late migrants such as the mallard

A pair of waders over your camouflage clothing and you are set to go. Use any available cover next to the water or in the water to conceal yourself and prepare for the onslaught of waterfowl. No need to dig a pit blind or build one. Keeping it simple makes it very portable and easy to move to another location. The whole key is to do a little scouting and find where the ducks are coming in. Right now, I have a pond that I know a few ducks are using because I have seen them on several occasions. It is a perfect spot to do the kind of setup that I just described. I cannot wait to go! Don’t forget to have the correct stamps to be legal. You need the federal, state, and HIP stamps plus a valid hunting license to hunt waterfowl.



Kansas voters, Pro-Life organizations and the Kansas Legislature have made tremendous strides in protecting the unborn in the past six years. All of the good that has been gained by stopping late term abortion and protecting the unborn will be for naught, if only a few court judges can overturn every gain secured by the pro-life community. It is now time to vote.

Six COURT OF APPEALS Judges are up for a retention vote.

Four of them have struck down the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act”, which forbade the procedure by which an abortionist rips into pieces a living unborn baby in the mother’s womb. The bill was passed with strong bipartisan support in the Kansas Legislature. Even liberal US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy specifically condemned this particular form of abortion, noting: “The fetus ... dies just as a human adult or child would: It bleeds to death as it is torn limb from limb. The fetus can be alive at the beginning of the dismemberment process and can survive for a time while its limbs are being torn off.”

FFA chapter hosts events

Youth collect gifts for children Submitted by Jill Henry WHS Correspondent Wetmore Bible Church’s Youth Group, also known as CIA (Christians in Action), has started up the annual Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is a program that allows community members to donate toys and food to their local church to be delivered to children around the world who normally would not receive a Christmas gift. Jessica Atwood, one of the leaders of the CIA, started passing out flyers earlier this week to make people aware of the project. Atwood said, “We usually start handing out flyers a week before Halloween and then on Halloween night we walk around the neighborhood and collect anyone’s gift that might have them ready.” Operation Christmas Child is not exclusive to just the people of Wetmore. There is a bigger group running this program called “Samaritan’s Purse.” They are a Christian organization that specializes in international disaster relief. If readers would like any further information on Operation Christmas Child or Samaritan’s Purse, they can visit their website at www. This year, Atwood is looking forward to how many donations they will receive. “Two years ago we received 28 boxes, and last year we got 31 so this year we are setting our goal even higher than that,” Atwood said. Those wishing to donate, or those who would like more information, may contact Atwood at her cell phone number at 785-364-6427 or Wetmore Bible Church’s email at

Sabetha seniors compete in Queen contest Submitted by Addie Huning Sabetha High School seniors MiKayla Deters, Lauren Herbster and Emily Strathman competed in the Hiawatha Halloween Queen Contest Monday, Oct. 31. The three seniors participated in a leadership, public speaking and scholarship opportunity in the contest. This year, there were 25 girls competing in this contest from area schools. The first prize winner received a $1,000 scholarship, runner-up received a $750 scholarship and Miss Congeniality received a $250 scholarship. “I filled out the application. That entails listing all of your leadership skills, a $50 sponsor

and a letter of recommendation, so it took a lot of planning,” Herbster said. The girls have learned to present a speech and perform a talent for the judges. “It took a lot of planning, especially practicing my talent, which will take some work,” Strathman said. The girls found out about this opportunity from their friends and past candidates. “I did this because Sarah Plum and Karrie VanWinkle, who are former FFA members, did it in the past, and I knew kind of what it entailed and kind of threw myself into it”, Deters said. The Halloween Queen Contest crowning began at 6 p.m. It was followed by the Halloween Parade at 7 p.m. in downtown Hiawatha. Herbster was crowned Halloween Queen. As the winner, Herbster will reMiss Sabetha and newly crowned ceive a $1,000 scholarship.

November Topics Members of Wetmore High School’s journalism class — Dakota McQueen, Jill Henry, Jossie Shumaker and Dez Fund — observe Josten’s artist Nick Perry as he creates their cover on the computer. Submitted | Linda Boyd

Submitted by Desiree Fund WHS Student Correspondent On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the Wetmore High School yearbook class took a trip to Topeka’s Jostens Yearbook Plant to plan out this year’s yearbook cover. Yearbook Instructor Linda Boyd drove Dakota McQueen, Desiree Fund, Jill Henry, Alena Pfrang and Jossie Shumaker to the facility. Upon arrival, the class was greeted at the entrance by in plant representative Lori Wishert and sales representative Jeff Jasper and walked to the conference room.

After the girls explained their idea for the cover and showed the Jostens creative resource artist Nick Perry what they wanted, Perry sketched the cover out in front of the class. “I was amazed at the way he was able to create the artwork in front of us in minutes,” McQueen said. After the artwork was finished, Jostens provided lunch for the class. After eating and looking at layout ideas for the yearbook, the class left for home, happy with the progress made at the plant.

Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake



from the kitchen of Annie Deters

Pan: 2 T melted butter 2 T cocoa powder Cake: 1 C butter 1/3 C cocoa powder 1/2 tsp salt 1 C water 1-3/4 C flour 1-1/2 C sugar 1-1/2 tsp bak. soda 2 eggs 3/4 C sour cream 1 tsp vanilla extract 1-2 C choc. chips Glaze: 1 C chocolate chips 2/3 C heavy cream 1/4 tsp vanilla Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together the butter and cocoa powder for the pan until the mixture is well combined and pasty. Use a pastry brush or folded square of wax paper to wipe the cocoa/butter mixture into a 10 or 12 inch Bundt pan until the inner surface is evenly coated. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, cocoa powder, salt and water. Heat until the butter is melted and whisk to combine well. Set aside to cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and baking soda. Pour in the chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Add the eggs and whisk to combine. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla until the batter is smooth. Fold in

chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and bake 40-45 minutes until the top lightly springs back and the cake is baked through. Let the cake cool 5 to 10 minutes in the pan before turning it out carefully onto a cooling rack to cool completely. For the glaze, place the chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Heat the cream to a simmer and pour over the chocolate. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes without stirring. Add the vanilla and stir the mixture until it is glossy and smooth. The glaze will set up as it cools. Once the cake is cooled, place it on a serving plate or cakestand and pour the glaze over the cake letting it drip down the sides.
