The event will take place at the Beloit First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 801 N. Bell who are sponsoring. Tuesday morning was not a typical day at the Methodist Church after a special visitor made it’s appearance. While a group of people were attending Bible study around 8 a.m., just 50 yards away from it’s exit, a deer decided to make it’s crashing entrance through the church nursery window in between the two east front entrance doors. After discovering all the hallway doors were closed the intruder found a back door pried open and exited onto the streets. Some bible study members saw a figure and thought it was a dog. After investigating the incident, deer hair was found along with the back window smeared with blood from the cuts it had received. The conclusions were confirmed after a BELOIT – Equipment for Rotary softball will be handed out to coaches at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 7, at the equipment building located north of the concession stand.

On March 30 the Mitchell County Commissioners chose from a list of options for the work scope on the Cawker Causeway refurbishment project. Option Y was selected which allowed for 75 parking spaces and 12,365 linear feet of three cable guard rail. The commissioners, however, wanted to look into the possibility of reducing the number of parking spaces to 50 and increase the total linear feet of guardrail by another 1,200 feet. As of Monday’s meeting, they were still waiting for answers from the Central Federal Lands branch of the Federal Highway Administration in Lakewood, Colo. Questions were also raised as to whether existing cables, in good condition, could be re-used as a cost saving measure. The commissioners will continue, along with Public Works Director Larry Emerson, to answer multiple questions and narrow down several remaining variables in regard to the overall project. The commission is also seeking to have a cap set on a maximum project cost. The total has already increased by over $300,000 since initial estimates were made. The project is currently estimated at a total of $1.03 million dollars. A letter was presented to the commissioners from Jeff Jerome of the Federal Highway Administration seeking to authorize Emerson to give approvals directly, on behalf of the county, during the project. The commissioners were unable to reach Jerome by phone following the meeting in search of answers to these questions. It was noted at the beginning of the meeting that County Clerk Chris Treaster will be in Lawrence on Tuesday through Friday this week for the State County Clerks and Election Officials Convention. EMS Director Kelly Hawk appeared before the commission for a 10 minute executive session to discuss non-elected personnel. No official decisions were made. Emerson reported on public works saying that core drilling on the Jordan bridge is returning positive results. He also found guardrail posts discussed at the last meeting to replace rotted and broken ones discovered along the Glen Elder dam road two weeks ago. He can order 72 replacement posts for $1,296 dollars plus $600 freight for a total of $1,896 dollars which breaks down to a cost of What’s all the noise about! If the Mitchell County Courthouse looks more visible these days it is because several large trees have been removed due to disease. The trees are being taken care of by Wayne Miner’s Tree Service of Beloit. Right: Son Kevin Miner takes on a big cedar tree that once stood in the northeast corner of the building. Sharon Sahlfeld photo motorist reported seeing the deer fleeing the crime scene. “All God’s creatures are invited to church but most dears are the two legged variety,” said Methodist Church Pastor James Brackett. “I guess all God’s creatures go to church occasionally.” The deer was reported to the Beloit police department as injured and roaming around town but no information was released on it’s possible wearabouts. Besides a broken window with glass cleanup the church was spared from other damage that could have occurred if the animal would have panicked. It is unclear to why the deer jumped through the window but it is speculated that it was spooked in some manner. Sharon Sahlfeld photos Deer fibers were found around the broken window and the back door where it exited. about $26 per post. There was also a discussion about the recycling center at the fairgrounds which is currently a financial responsibility of the County. Emerson asked if the commissioners would consider turning the building over to OCCK who runs the recycling operation. Chairman Tom Claussen said he would contact Barb Wise to discuss possible options. The County currently pays the utility bills, taxes, insurance. There were concerns raised that some toilets and urinals in the facility run continually and will reflect as much on utility bills. Emerson also reported that he is still waiting on delivery of two new tractors purchased from Carrico Implement and expects to take delivery on excavation equipment from CAT in July. He added that the scheduled 50 percent completion on a new pit being dug at the landfill could be finished as early as midweek by NCK Tech if weather conditions are favorable. The other half of the pit will be dug in the fall when NCK Tech resumes classes after the summer break. A make-up hearing was held prior to official approval of the new Neighborhood Revitalization application process without any public objection or discussion and carried unanimously. Commissioner Mike Cooper had high praise for the program saying that he was first introduced to it as a contractor before becoming a commissioner and was one of the first area residents to utilize the program. He said he believes it to be a very important aspect of encouraging growth and providing a positive impact on the local economy. Mitchell County Economic Development Director Heather Hartman said other E.D. directors she speaks with are amazed at how much and how well the program is utilized in Mitchell County. Hartman estimated $50 million in total applications had been approved under the program. Claussen added that the program has been self-sustaining and not a cost in terms of lost revenue to the County. He also voiced approval for how the program treats commercial and residential projects equally. The commissioners were heading to a four county meeting later on Monday for lunch and an opportunity to discuss issues and exchange ideas with commissioners from Jewell, Smith and Osborne Counties. The next Mitchell County Commission meeting is scheduled for 8:30 a.m Monday, May 11 at the courthouse. Wednesday, May 6, 2015 Country Club Ladies BELOIT – President Marlene Mispagel called the meeting of the Ladies of the Country Club to order after a fine lunch of Lasagna, green salad, and four berry sorbet. In the past the card players had eaten at separate tables, but it was suggested at the March meeting that the pinochlers and the bridgers be mixed up instead of segregating them. The president acknowledged that it was a success and a lot more fun. Marlene welcomed guests Lou Mick and Pauline Allison. Hostesses for the day were thanked and next month Phyllis Thull, Josie Hartman and Erma Criswell will have the responsibility. Minutes for the last meeting were read by Secretary Terri Zimmer. Since there was no new or old business, Vice President Marlene Moritz adjourned the meeting with the following quotation: “ You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.” Winners on the bridge side of the room were: first, Marlene Moritz; second, Terri Zimmer; third, Ginger Robinson. Victors among the pinochle group were: first, Erma Criswell; second, Betty Melton; third, Shirley Conley.

Before we met, I coerced a woman into having sex. I did not use physical force, but she did not give consent. By today’ s standards, this was, I think, a clear case of date rape. I have never told anyone about this, and there is little chance that we will ever encounter this woman. So my wife will never find out. Do I owe it to her to tell her? I believe that to do so could cause serious harm to our marriage. -Anonymous and Conflicted Society is much more sensitive these days (and rightly so) to instances of sex without consent, e.g., when the woman is drunk or when someone in a position of authority takes advantage of a subordinate. We are glad that this has been bothering you for 30 years. It shows that you have remorse. Ideally, you would tell your wife and have her support when you voluntarily go to the police, but you don’ t seem likely to do that. You can discuss this with your clergyperson or a therapist, although depending on the particulars of the date rape and the state in which it happened, there may be mandatory reporting laws, as well as no statute of limitations on the crime. (For information on these laws, contact RAINN at rainn.org, or see a lawyer.) A therapist also could help you decide how to broach the subject with your wife. Is there a way to apologize to the victim? This can be more healing than you know, for both of you. You might also contribute to an organization for rape victims. These things don’ t at all make up for what you did, but they are a step in the right direction and better than doing nothing. You’ ve printed several letters about bridal showers and baby showers and other occasions where gifts are given. Let me ask these young women who expect their family members to give gifts for every one of these events: Do you ever give your grandparents a birthday present? Do you ever send the great-aunts a Christmas card? When your uncle is ill, do you send flowers or a get-well card? Life is not about how many gifts you can get. These young men and women should count the number of gifts they have received from their grandparents, aunts, uncles and other close friends and family members since their high school graduations and then consider what they have given in return. - Tired of the Gimme Generation Amen. Too often the recipients of largesse think the gravy train only runs in one direction and they don’ t need to show similar consideration to an older generation. But what relative wouldn’ t be thrilled to get a birthday card from a great-niece or a holiday card from a grandchild without prompting? If you have older relatives or friends and have never thought about sending them a card or a gift or making a phone call on their special days, please remember all of the considerate things they have done for you over the years, and ask yourself how you could express similar kindness.

TOPEKA – The Kansas Archeology Training Program (KATP), sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Kansas Anthropological Association, has received the 2015 Award for Excellence in Public Education: Community and Public Programming. This major award from the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) is considered only every three years and demonstrates that the KATP is among the best archeology public education programs in the United States. The SAA is the largest and most prestigious archeological organization in the Western Hemisphere, dedicated to the research, interpretation, and protection of the archeological heritage of the Americas. According to Kansas State Archeologist Robert Hoard, “ The KATP allows the public to participate in science. Instead of listening to experts describing and interpreting evidence that they have recovered, non-professionals are given training and guidance that allow them to work alongside professionals to uncover the evidence for themselves . . . . The program is designed to be as affordable as possible and allows people as young as ten years of age to participate under the supervision of a responsible adult.” While the annual summer field school is an important component of the KATP, the program also offers opportunities throughout the year, including seminars on specific archeological topics and an optional certification program that encourages participants to reach levels of competence that they may not have attempted otherwise.The volunteer program has participants who return year after year, choosing to spend part or all of their summer vacations learning about and contributing to what is known about the Kansas past. The national award validates the commitment of these volunteers. For more information on the upcoming KATP field school in Ellis County, June 5-20, visit www.kshs.org/14622 or contact Public Archeologist Virginia Wulfkuhle at [email protected] or 785272-8681 ext. 266.
