Mud Volleyball tournament was good, clean fun

The 5th annual Coed Mud Volleyball Tournament was held Aug. 8 at the Wolverine Sports Complex. There were eight teams registered. Each team was guaranteed six games and played in one pool. Again this year, children were allowed to play on the dirt hill that quickly became a mud slide as the day wore on. The competition was fierce all day, leading to the final championship game.

Cunningham competes at the 36th Annual Mopar Mile High Nationals

Jeff Cunningham took his national recordsetting Corvette to compete at the 36th Annual Mopar Mile High Nationals in Denver, Colo. this past July. He took his daughter, Ryenne, and her friend Greenleigh Seiler, to help as crew members. Ryenne has attended several races but this was Greenleigh’s first trip. They arrived on Thursday, before the race, so they could attend the Mopar Block Party in Golden the day before the race. Golden closes down the main street and thousands of people from all over the country as well as locals attend.

It’s late in the afternoon of Wilson’s annual After Harvest Czech Festival and almost everyone is looking for a cool place to land, anything to get out of the heat of a July day in Kansas. At Wilson Lake, Jason Hicks is anything but dressed for the weather. His attire is formal — white shirt, black pants, vest, bow tie. His only concession to the heat is the lack of a jacket. His appearance is in sharp contrast to most days, when he works for his uncle Gale Hunter in the family construction business. His most recent job was in downtown Ellsworth, at the Petal Place, formerly Boot’s Plant and Flower Center.

BY LINDA MOWERY-DENNING
Ellsworth County I-R
The above quote comes closer than any other to summarizing Scott Moore’s approach to his new job as Ellsworth city administrator. As he talked one day recently, his mind seemed to race from idea to idea, things Moore would like to see Ellsworth consider — not just for itself but for the region as a whole. “Trying to do it on your own is difficult,” he said. “You have to work with Kanopolis, with Wilson ... take a more regional approach.
