McDonald’s Sewing and Vacuum announced in a recent news release that Nance Chamberlain is a prize winner for its International Sewing Month celebration. She won an RNK bundle package, which includes stabilizers, battings and tools from Alex Anderson’s Quilter’s Select. Chamberlain registered for the prize drawing during McDonald’s International Sewing Month celebration. The lucky winner’s prize registration slip was chosen at random from thousands of other drawing entries at the VDTA/SDTA Vacuum & Sewing Dealers Trade Association in Des Moines, Iowa. The association, along with numerous manufacturers in the sewing industry, helps to sponsor these prize giveaways to promote September as International Sewing Month. International Sewing Month is a way for independent sewing dealers to thank current customers for their business, and also show new customers the quality products and services they provide. “It’s always exciting to see one of your own customers win a national prize,” said Patrick McDonald, owner and operator of McDonald’s Sewing and Vacuum. “We’d like to thank everyone who stopped by the store. You’ve made (International) Sewing Month a success!” McDonald’s Sewing and Vacuum is located at 222 S. Summit St. in downtown Arkansas City. For more information, call (620) 441-0939.

How do you capture who Jesus really is? What words would you use to describe Him? Explore the endless possibilities with these 100 names and attributes, pulled directly from Scripture, and presented with uncommon clarity and depth. Full in scope. Rich in devotion. Through prayers and insights that widen your view of Jesus’ nature and purpose, you will see Him in ways you’ve perhaps never noticed before — specific to your need, complete in His love for you. You won’t just be informed. You’ll be transformed. One day at a time, 100 days in a row, inspired toward a deeper, more knowing sense of worship … for a lifetime. Diann Cotton’s 100 Days with Jesus is a great way to dip your toes into a deeper understanding of Jesus’ nature. Each of the 100 entries starts with a word, such as “intercessor.” It then provides verses, definitions and explanations regarding why each facet of Jesus is important to us. These lessons are short and don’t take more than five to 10 minutes on their own, depending on whether you want to read the verse in a preferred translation. While the lessons themselves are not very in-depth, they provide a good jumping-off point for those looking for a little guidance. And they are great for those who are just beginning to learn more about the nature of Jesus. The book...Read More
The Cowley College Board of Trustees voted 5-0 on Dec. 11 to appoint Nancy Burger, of Winfield, to fill Sid Regnier’s vacant seat. The seat was empty for 274 days following Regnier’s resignation in March, when the board decided to leave it open until after the November election. Burger was one of two applicants to apply for the position, along with Parkerfield Mayor Michael Bergagnini, who ran in the recent election. Burger is a former principal of Country View Elementary School in Winfield and also served as elementary curriculum director for the Winfield Public School District. She currently is employed as an administrative manager at W.D. Short Oil Company. The company formerly was owned by Burger’s father, the late William D. Short, who died in 2004. Burger’s mother, Marjorie Short, is the owner of Short Land Company LLC and the donor of 18 acres of property just east of Walmart in Wellington, along U.S. 160, that will be the site of the new Sumner County campus. In exchange for the land, the family received naming rights to the first building. The Short General Education Center is set to open in 2018. Burger was present last December when her mother deeded over the property, worth $1.76 million, for the Sumner County campus. “The gratitude of Mr. (Bob) Juden, Dr. (Dennis) Rittle and Dr. (Gloria) Walker made the experience ever more fulfilling,”...Read More
The Cowley College Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Dec. 11 to approve the addition of men’s and women’s bowling teams at the Cowley College Mulvane Center in the fall of 2018. Cowley College athletic director Shane Larson provided the board with a feasibility study showing the benefits of adding men’s and women’s bowling teams. Larson said bowling is growing in popularity among Kansas high school students, and there are strong recruitment areas in Kansas and Oklahoma. Wichita State University has one of the top college bowling programs in the nation, but the Shockers turn away an average of more than 60 potential student-athletes that attend the annual tryout for their teams, he said. Larson said the Cowley bowling teams will practice and hold home matches at the Derby Bowl. He also said the addition of bowling will help to provide a sense of cohesion and student spirit at the Mulvane Center, as well as opportunities for community involvement. “We are extremely excited to announce the addition of men’s and women’s bowling to our athletic offerings at Cowley College,” Larson said. “The sport of bowling is very popular at the high school level and we will be the first two-year college to offer the sport in Kansas. We are proud to be able to provide a new opportunity for students (who) want to be able to continue competing in...Read More
