8B THE SUPERIOR EXPRESS Lora Lerhling opened the service at Harmony United Methodist Church Sunday by reading the announcements. The worship began when Rosalie Men- husen played the prelude, "The Lord' s Prayer," on the pipe organ. Special music was a vocal duet, "My Prayer," sung by Rosalie Menhusen and Coralyn Kaufman, accompanied by Joan Davis. In his children's message, lay speaker Rod Rose asked the children if they liked to go shopping. When we go to a big store with a lot of stuff in it, it' s easy to get distracted by all the things we see and would like to have. Then we forget what we came to shop for. In life it's easy to forget what our goal is. The most important goal is to love God with all our heart. The morning scripture was Mat- thew 10:16-39. The sermon was titled "Finding Life." In this scripture, Jesus tells His followers that bad days will come. Jesus said, "Do not think that I came to bring peace, but a sword." Jesus came to bring God's word, which to the Jews was known as a sword. The world is evil and some will not believe Jesus. Families will be divided. We must love God more than family. If we love this world and its things more than God, we will lose our life. Those who love and follow God most will save their life for eternity. We don't know how much time we have, so we must make time for God before it's too late. We need to be ready for suffering and persecution. Jesus told his followers this so they'd be prepared to suffer. No one wakes in the morning and then decides to run a marathon. One prac- tices, trains, prepares. The same is true of our spiritual life. We need to prepare and train and keep going even when it hurts. God is preparing us, condition- ing us, according to what He wants us to do and become. We must keep hop- ing and working toward our most im- portant goal, eternal life with God. God's spirit empowers us. Combines are rolling in Jewell County and we're praying for an acci- dent-free good harvest. Most of the forecasted rains have gone around us this week. Rick and Shelia Diamond signed up their grandsons, Byron and Jackson Zeigler, Wamego, and Dayne and Levi Clark, Superior, for a golf clinic in Red Cloud Thursday.

His ANC was on the low side at his last LP so they checked them Mon- day (two weeks out). His ANC is low, 180. He is on a chemo hold for a week. It is not the news they wanted, but I guess they will look at the positive and enjoy not looking at the clock at night. He had two pokes that morning and he rocked it as usual with not even one tear. He is the toughest guy around! Sunday will be the day his cancer journey began oneyear ago. In cel- ebration of getting through this diffi- cult year as an even stronger family they are lighting the sky. Readers are invited to join from their homes in tying a glow stick tO a helium balloon.

Guests of the morning were Mary and Clair Sloan, Jerry Lewis and Karen Loeffelman. As pastor, Gerry Sharp spoke to the children. He asked "who is the smart- est person you know?" One person may be smarter in one thing but an- other person at something else. But there is Jesus, he knows everything. He has power over us. Alyce Gillett read a paper written in 1965 by Paul Harvey. Paul wrote"IfI were the devil, what would I do?" Many of the things he mentioned are already in our lives. Satan has taken over in some areas of our lives. Pastor Gerry chose scripture from Matthew 28 with "Authority" being his sermon title. He said some- one is in charge. Is it mother, father, grandmother, your boss? No, it should be God' s son Jesus. He needs to be in charge in every single situation of life. Go and make disciples in all nations. We must share God with the world.

Fellowship followed at the senior center with the Catholic Church congregation as hosts. Jerry Lewis, Long Beach, Calif., arrived Saturday at his Esbon home. His wife, Trudy, will joined him here Tuesday. May 11 Patricia Windmuller, Tamara Finnell, Pam Hajny, Dave Hastings, Gary and Kris Kindler left on a trip to Europe. This was a trip sponsored by the Kansas Wesleyan Choir. They first visited Prague in the Czech Republic, which is where Pat and Pam's maternal grandmother, Anna Johanek, immigrated from. They continued on to Vienna and then to Budapest. They also took a side trip to the country of Slovakia. The old cities were beautiful and they enjoyed tast- ing the foods from each country. They returned home May 22. There were several flights each way but the long flight which was l0 hours was in a jumbo jet that held nearly 500 people. Pat says she loved the trip but it was nice to get back to Jewell County.

Sunday morning Tim Benoit was taking his walk when he was startled to come upon a wrecked vehicle, a rollover, and the driver still there. This was at the south edge of Esbon, near Chad Benoit's place. The occupant was Jeremy Simmelink who was pinned under the vehicle. He was trans- ported to Jewell County Hospital by the ambulance. Reports were that among his many injuries was an in- jured arm where he was pinned. He was moved to the Kearney hospital and from there to Omaha. Last week's Esbon News carried the story of Ted Thummel being on an honor flight trip to Washington, D.C. Here are Ted's thoughts after arriving home: "Commendations go to Mrs. Beverly Mortimer, Concordia, for ex- cellent planning and managing of the flight. Her staff of 'guardians' who saw to the veterans' every need were outstanding and made the trip enjoy- able. Also the people of the area who have supported this project with their donations and their time should be, commended. Every veteran who has a chance to go should make this very interesting trip." Kansas hunters can apply for 'special hunts' online The Kansas Department of Wild- life, Parks and Tourism invites hunters to apply online for 2014-2015 special hunts for the fall and winter season. Applications can be made as early as July 12 by visiting and clicking "Hunting/Special Hunts Information." Drawings will take place Aug. 11 for September and October hunts, and Sept. 29 for hunts taking place October through January. The special hunting access gained through this program tends to mean a higher quality hunt and potentially greater harvest rates for successful applicants, but just like with any other outdoor activity, nothing is guaran- teed. During the application process, hunters will select what type of species they would like to hunt as well as what type of hunt they prefer, be that an open hunt, a youth hunt, or a mentored hunt. Open hunts are available to all successful applicants, regardless of age or hunting experience. Youth hunts require parties to include at least one youth 18 or younger, accompanied by an adult 21 or older who will not hunt. And mentored hunts are open to both youth and novice hunters supervised by a mentor 21 or older who may also hunt. A random computer drawing will be conducted within one week of the application deadline. Applicants may apply for second draw hunts any time prior to the September deadline. Suc- cessful applicants will then be emailed their hunt permit, as well as any neces- sary maps and other pertinent informa- tion. Application deadlines are as fol- lows: 1 st Draw (September and October special hunts): 9 a.m., Aug. 11. 2nd Draw (November, Decem- ber, January and February special hunts): 9 a.m., Sept. 29. Last year, the special hunts pro- gram offered 1,204 hunts for the fall and winter hunting season. Depending upon the location and species being hunted, special hunts can range from a half-day up to the entire length of the season. Lands made available for special hunts can include Corps of Engineers properties, wildlife areas, state parks, city and county properties, and private lands. Although similar to the Walk-In Hunting Access (WIHA) program in that private landowners are compen- sated for the use of their land, the special hunts program allows land- owners to xercise more control over the use of their land. Rules such as which dates hunting can occur, how many people can hunt, as well as what species can be hunted are all left to landowners' discretion. In addition, land areas designated for special hunts provide limited access to the public, whereas WlHA lands provide open access to hunters.
