Drive 4 UR School

Beloit & Truck Plaza will be sponsoring the Drive 4 UR School event from 9am to 1pm on April 1st to benefit both St. John’s Catholic and Beloit High Schools.  The event will be held at the business location on 3133 US Hwy 24 in Beloit.  This event has the potential to raise $6,000 through 300 test drives.

Drive 4 UR School began in 2007 as a way for Ford to give back to communities across the country.  The idea was for individuals to test-drive a Ford vehicle from a local dealership and earn $20 per test drive for their local high schools.  The success for the school program inspired the launch of Drive 4 UR Community, allowing Ford Dealers to partner with nonprofit organizations as well.  Thousands of events and $35 million in donations later, participants are still test-driving for a cause that they, and Ford, are equally passionate about.

LAWYER’S TO SPEAK AT AREA SENIOR CENTERS

Do you know the difference between a Will and a Trust?  How do you know which one is best for you?  When should you give someone the Power of Attorney to help manage your affairs?  What exactly is a Living Will?  Who should have the Power of Attorney for Medical Decisions in the event you are not able to make those life-altering considerations?  I keep seeing ads on TV for Reverse Mortgages – is that something I should be contemplating?

These are just some of the topics that will be presented by area lawyers at the Senior Centers in Mitchell County.  The first two presentations will be at the Cawker City Senior Center on Thursday, April 6th, and the Beloit Senior Center on Monday, April 10th.  Similar workshops will follow at the Glen Elder Senior Center, and the Tipton Senior Center/Community Building.  It is hoped one will also be available later at the Hunter Senior Center/Community Building.

The Cawker City event will take place in conjunction with the monthly potluck supper, beginning at 6:00 PM.  Darrel Miller, attorney from Mankato, will be the presenter.  Following his presentation, the participants will have an opportunity to ask questions, enabling them to further their knowledge on these important topics.  The event is free to the public, and open to all area residents of all ages.  April 6th at 6:00 PM is the date to be in Cawker City.

The seminar at the.  Kay Prather will offer her law expertise at this meeting, first offering a presentation on the topics stated above, as well as other items of importance to those attending.  This will be followed by a question/answer period, giving those in attendance the opportunity to ask on topics of major concern to themselves.  Again, there is no charge for this program, and it is open to all area residents regardless of age.

Call Jay Rowh at 785-738-0241 for further details.  You may also call the Cawker City Senior Center at 785-781-4763, or the Beloit Senior Center at 785-738-5802 for additional information.  Pre-registration is not required.  The events are sponsored by the Mitchell County Council on Aging, and the Senior Center hosting the event.  Here is your chance to gain some basic knowledge in important areas needed to make wise choices in your retirement and “golden” years.  Take advantage of these opportunities at your area Senior Center.

 

Coffee & Conversation with US Congressman Roger Marshall

US Congressman Roger Marshall will have a Town Hall Meeting at the Chamber Office/Porter House Lobby on Thursday, April 13th at 9:30am.  More details to come in future Chamber Chats!

Not sure how to get started with a computer on the internet or email?  Do you have an iPAD but don’t use it for much beyond Solitaire?  Do you wish you could use more features on your Smart Phone other than to just answer the phone?  All these questions, and more, can be answered on Wednesday and Friday, March 22nd and 24th, at the Beloit Senior Center, from 9:00 until 10:30.  The workshop is open to everyone, regardless of age, and is FREE!!!

The Mitchell County Council on Aging, as well as the Beloit Senior Center is sponsoring the event, and will feature Miss Tayler Watts, Miss Lexie Roberg, Miss Grace Marozas, and Miss Danielle Riemann of Beloit High School as the presenters.  Tayler, Lexie, Grace, and Danielle will take your questions each day, and will work with you on either your own electronic equipment, or on the computers available at the Senior Center.  No advance enrollment is required.  The participants will determine the content, as their questions will lead the discussion.  Whether novice or more advanced, Tayler, Lexie, Grace, and Danielle will help you become better suited to getting the most out of your device.

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops, iPads, and Smart Phones to the Senior Center on either, or both, days of the workshop.  Potential topics include Skype, storing data on the iCLOUD, getting and using new APPS, taking pictures with your devices, sending and receiving pictures from and to your phone, Facebook, and any other questions the participants desire to have answered.

For further information, call the Beloit Senior Center at 738-5802. or Jay Rowh at 738-2310,  Take advantage of this opportunity to get expert, hands-on information that will help you get more out of your electronic equipment on Wednesday and Friday, March 22nd and 24th, at the Beloit Senior Center.

There will be a similar workshop at the Glen Elder Senior Center the week of March 27th.  More information on that workshop will follow.

2017 KSHSAA OSCAR STAUFFER AWARDS ANNOUNCED

TOPEKA, Kan. – The KSHSAA is pleased to announce the selection of Dusty Deines and Brad Hallier as the 2017 Oscar Stauffer Award recipients. Deines, Glen Elder, has been dubbed the Sportscaster of the Year and Hallier, Hutchinson, as the Sportswriter of the Year.

Dusty Deines is the play-by-play announcer and sports reporter for KDNS-FM in Glen Elder.  A native of WaKeeney, Deines knew by the 7th grade he wanted to do play-by-play broadcasting.  After graduating from Trego High School in 2001, Deines attended Colby Community College where he was the play-by-play announcer for the women’s basketball team and occasionally called Colby High School football games.  He served as the KTCC Sports Director for a year before graduating with a degree in Radio Broadcasting in 2003.

Deines soon began working at KD Country 94 and Z 96.3 where he continues to be the main play-by-play announcer covering nine area high schools.  In addition to covering high school sports, Deines gives daily sportscasts and handles sales accounts in the Downs/Beloit area as well as a large amount of production of commercials and station promos.  Deines is a multiple-time KAB award winner in both play-by-play and sportscast.  Over the course of his broadcast career, Deines has called 22 KSHSAA state championship games or matches.

 

When he’s not traveling all over the state covering high school sports, Deines enjoys spending time with his family and friends, being involved in efforts to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association, helping with church activities and making as many trips as possible to Manhattan, KS to support K-State athletics.
