Offices located at 111 E. Main, Mankato, Kansas 66956 A feature of The Superior Express Entered into Thursday, October 20, 2016 Price 50 the mail at Mankato, Kansas, and Superior, Nebraska Monday through Saturday, when you walk through the front door into what was the Esbon Grocery Store, it first appears as just another remodel- ing project. Every Saturday afternoon, however, the construction zone is trans- formed into a completely different pre- mises. All tools are put away, ladders, tables, saws, cords, lights are all stowed into one of the comers, lumber and sheet rock as well as paint and sheet rock paste containers are moved into tile unused comers of the building. Before your eyes, the Esbon Church of Christ appears. Pews with Bibles and church hymnals, a podium, the offering plate is put in its place and a small table to hold the communion service is moved out into the main part of the room, which has now been transformed into the sancutary. On the sides and in the back room, tables and chairs are set up for Sunday school classroom areas. Sunday morning, the doors are opened with church commencing at 10 a.m. Each Sunday, Steve Grey, Miltonvale, an elder at the Beloit Church of Christ, brings the message. Edgar Marihugh, who is also an elder at the Beloit Church of Christ, reads the scripture, and Kenny Marihugh is the song leader. At the present time, there are four pews for the congregation to use. Fold- ing chairs are used to finish up the sanctuary area. "The pews came from the Odessa Methodist Church that has been closed for awhile. Dennis Manning refurbished the four that are here at the present time, but we have 12 more that will be added in time. The pews were purchased from Joan Broeckelman, daughter of Claire and Thelma Lamb. The Lambs owned the ground the Odessa Church sat on and Joan inherited the land," said Edgar. The podium also came from the Odessa Methodist Church. Edgar was asked where the piano was and he said, "we sing a cappella. God loves to hear our voices sing him praise." Chairs and tables are stored in the old Esbon High School gym, owned by Kenny Marihugh (Edgar and Veronica's son) and his wife. All have been obtained from schools that have closed. Steve and Lucy Black, Wichita, are the owners of the hot air balloon that was seen sailing around Mankato late Saturday afternoon. The Black's love to use their balloon and with all the different fall colors they decided it would be a good weekend for some fun. The Black's transport their balloon inside a utility trailer which is pulled by their pickup. According to Leila Becker, sister of Lucy, the Black's arrived Friday afternoon and plans were to use the balloon in the area Saturday and Sunday. The good old Kansas winds kept the Black's from going up Saturday until later in the day so travel time was short, and then Sunday the area was covered with fog so it could not be used. Lucy, the daughter of Arleta Carlton, Jewell, came up to the Becker's home and watched as the balloon was'filled with the air making it ready to travel. The ballooning was cut short but Arleta, Lucy, and Lella enjoyed their family visit. (Photo is courtesy of Nadine Railsback.)

The newly-formed Esbon Church of Christ came to be when Edgar Marihugh, pictured above with his wife, Veronica, decided the town needed a Church of Christ. Marihugh is also an elder at the Beloit Church of Christ. All of this came about because of Edgar feeling the need for a Church of Christ in Esbon. "I have organized and held Bible studies several different times. This past March I started another Bible study class and held it in the community center here in Esbon on Monday nights. We covered a series of lessons that lasted between two to three months and during that time there were about 10 people who were attending on a regular basis. Steve Grey and I visited about how many were attending and I shared that I felt there were several first time June 5 of this year. Really this whole thing is a Beloit Church of Christ effort, All are helping in some way. The Beloit congregation wanted to see the church open and are very supportive," said Edgar. Veronica and Edgar attend Bible study at the Beloit Church of Christ on Wednesday nights. The Marihughs attended and were members of the Dentonia Church of Christ until it closed Sept. 30, 1998, and then they became members of the Beloit Church of Christ. "Steve said to me, 'you need to start a congregation here in Esbon'. I looked at Steve and said 'you know, Steve, let's just do it', and that is how the Esbon Church of Christ began." The first step for the Marihughs was finding a location for the church, so they purchased the former Esbon Grocery Store that had been sold to Farmway Co-op. Edgar and wife, Veronica, have been teammates, shar- ing input, thoughts and costs equally on the building of this church. "The resurrection of this church is The Marih'ughs have lots of local people who are working on the con- struction and updating of the building. "We vary. We don' t have a set crew that is working, on the update and re- pairs of the b ailding. It is whoever wants to work shows up. Today I picked up nine dinners in Lebanon for the crew, Most every day there are six to nine people," s'aid Edgar. If Edgar had a lead carpenter of the crew he would have to name Brett Whettham. Brett works for different ones on their farms locally. Two weeks ago the roof was treated with a rubber roofing compound. In- side about half the south wall had dam- age and has been tom out and re- placed with new material as well as insulation adddd, new sheetrock hung, and ready to paint. There is still lots to be done to complete the most needed update. Lots and lots of painting. The present bath- room will be enlarged. A children's classroom will be finished in the south- east comer of the building. At this time Edgar and Veronica are not sure what will be done w~th the upstairs area. On the front of thib church a sign will be placed with "~sbon Church of Christ, founded June 5, 2016" on it. Also on the front of the church there will be a drive under awning where parishio- ners will be able to drive under, get out and into the ch!arch without getting wet from the weather elements. "This is an aged building and just like anything else I don't think we will ever have thefemodel or update com- pletely done. Structure-wise there will always be something that needs to be not just me. My wife is just as much a done.

Virgina Tech University and the Uni- versity of Wisconsin-Platteville also competed, along with several agricul- tural universities across southern and western Australia. Three team members -- L'Ecuyer, Sudbeck and Simmelink -- were awarded a stipend from the American Society of Agronomy to cover their travel expenses as a result of previ- ously placing first, second and third in the U.S. Collegiate Crops contests held last November in Kansas City and Chi- cago. The K-State team previously par- ticipated in the Australian Universities Crops Competition in 2012 and 2014. They also placed first as a team in 2014. The competition was held over two days at the Temora Agricultural Inno- vation Centre, managed by FarmLink. The contest included a seed identifica- tion section, three exams over produc- tion of selected Australian crops, com- mercial grading of wheat samples, a business management problem, field yield estimates and management rec- ommendations, and a live crop, weed and disease evaluation component. Before and after the competition, contestants toured research projects being conducted on site and at farms in the area. Learning about canola and Australian white wheat production, ryegrass herbicide resistance problems, and the use of pulse crops such as lupins and fieldpeas in crop rotations were highlights for the U.S. team. The students also took the opportu- nity to learn about Australia. The trip began with visits to popular sites in Sydney, followed by a trip to the Great Barrier Reef at Cairns. They also vis- ited the Atherton Tablelands region in Queensland to observe tropical agri- culture including sugar cane produc- tion and a coffee plantation. On the trip to Temora, the group visited the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. After the competition, they toured Charles Sturt University and the Rhizolysimeter Center at Wagg.a Wagga, New South Wales. The tnp also included with two farmyisits in the Junee area featuring mixed crop- ping systems integrating wheat, canola and pulse crops with pasture crops supporting sheep production. In addition to the grant funds from the American Society of Agronomy, the trip was sponsored by the K~State Department of Agronomy. The Col- lege of Agriculture also provided in- ternational travel scholarships to the Kansas State University students. t ......... _ d_._______--
