LIBERTY — The Liberty United Methodist Church will be bestowed the Missouri School of Religion-Center for Rural Ministry’s Rural Church of the Year Award at a banquet dinner in Columbia, Mo., on Friday, Nov. 21.
The church was notified last week that it received the Rural Church Award for its continued growth in ministry and congregational leadership.
The Missouri School of Religion-Center for Rural Ministry, located in Jefferson City, Mo., honors two rural churches each year regardless of their denomination or affiliation. Churches that apply for the award have to satisfy criteria in four areas, which include:
* Nurture of the members of the congregation, preparing them for Christian discipleship, and building the Body of Christ through evangelistic outreach.
* Ministries of social concern, justice and compassion to the geographic local community within which the congregation is located, and to the larger community - state, nation and world.
* Support of the denomination with which the congregation is affiliated, and of the many ministries in which it shares with the denomination.
* Involvement in ecumenical or interfaith partnerships in education, worship or mission endeavors.
Judges in the competition found that the Liberty church satisfied the guidelines for the award because of the church’s recent completion of its fellowship hall, its continued youth and senior citizen ministries, and many other programs involving church members.
“I’m very proud of our church members,” said pastor Bill Booe of the Liberty United Methodist Church. “Receiving an award like this is a testament to how God has blessed this church through its members.”
The Missouri School of Religion also cited the Liberty church for the congregation’s work in helping people who face natural disasters. Church members led an effort to provide assistance to victims in Greensburg, Kan., following a May 2007 tornado in that western Kansas town. And, when flood waters hit Montgomery County in July 2007, the Liberty church members played a key role in providing assistance in a myriad of forms, from providing a place for tetanus vaccinations, food donations, and helping volunteers with meals.
Said the church’s application for the Rural Church Award, “Following the Greensburg tornado, our community became involved in a disaster of our own; we endured a record flood. Our church became a staging area. Church members provided meals and housing over a three day period while the area was without electricity. The “Flood of 2007” in the Liberty and Coffeyville, Kansas areas was a true test for all the preplanning that had taken place by the Liberty United Methodist Church Disaster Coordinators. Flood victims were brought to the church after being rescued from their homes by the Liberty Volunteer Fire Department, along with a swift water rescue team from Topeka and Silverlake, Kansas and Leawood, Kansas Fire Departments. The church also provided a tetanus shot vaccination to the individuals that had been in the floodwaters. None of this would have been possible without the addition to our church. In the months after the flood, the church became the local staging area for the Fellowship of Christian Farmers. This is an international organization of Christian farmers who follow after a disaster primarily rebuilding fencing for those in need. Members of our congregation joined a representative of the Christian Farmers Organization to build fences in the Coffeyville and Liberty area. It is obvious that this church, and its facilities, can fulfill a great need to not only those of us within, but to so many others as well, in an emergency or disaster situation. On the anniversary of the Flood of 2007, we meet in the same fellowship hall to celebrate one of God’s richest blessings – recovery.”
The Lincoln Memorial Elementary School Carnival is fast approaching and the evening’s event will be chocked full of food, games and prizes. The carnival, sponsored annually by the Lincoln Boosters, will be held Saturday, Nov. 15, at the school with the cafeteria opening its doors at 5:30 p.m. The booths will be open from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
A drawing will also be held for a free Cessna airplane ride, a basket full of Bullpup items and a specially made basket prepared by the school secretaries. Presales of the drawing and carnival booth tickets will be held Nov. 12, 13 and 14 at the school from 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. each of those three days. Booth tickets will sell 5/$1 and wristbands, good for 8th grade and under, will sell for $5. The night of the carnival booth tickets will be 6/$1 or wristbands $6. The raffle tickets are available for a $1 each donation.
Cathey Scoles, carnival co-chair, said the Boosters will donate the proceeds from the airplane flight/baskets raffle to the family of Rhonda Inman, special education instructor at Lincoln. Her husband, Kevin, has been diagnosed with cancer and the money will be used for the family to make trips to Houston, Texas for his medical treatment.
The carnival will feature a number of booths and activities for the entire family, regardless of age, and next week’s Chronicle will carry details of the booths and cafeteria menu.
Those who cannot purchase the presale tickets, or anyone with questions about the carnival, may contact Scoles at 620-289-4512 or 918-440-3080. She is being assisted by Marilyn Nelson as co-chair of the carnival.
CHERRYVALE — It just wasn’t meant to be.
The Cherryvale Chargers’ hopes for continued action in the class 3A state playoffs took a humble turn Tuesday when Cherryvale was overpowered by the Galena Bulldogs, 34-24, at a packed Logan Park Stadium.
The loss finished the Chargers’ season with an impressive 9-1 record.
“I told the guys after the game that they should run off the field the same way they ran onto the field: with heads held high and chests out,” said Harry Hester, Cherryvale head coach. “Obviously, if this loss didn’t hurt, then something’s wrong. But when you look at the overall body of work this season, our guys accomplished a great season and restored pride and confidence in the program.”
Hester said he realized before Tuesday’s battle that Galena would likely be the most physical, aggressive and athletic team that the Chargers have faced this season. And, the Bulldogs from the CNC League did not disappoint. Using an offensive that relied on a methodical rushing attack, the Bulldogs pounded the pigskin in incremental drives before being able to extend a sizable lead in the second half.
“They were big and quick and did a nice job pushing the ball,” said Hester. “But, our guys didn’t have panic in their eyes. Even when they were down 34-12 late in the game, our team didn’t quit and ended up putting two more touchdowns on the scoreboard.”
After Galena scored on its opening possession on a ground-only offensive attack, the Chargers would answer in the second quarter when Robert Lane caught a 23-yard pass from quarterback Brandon Blackburn. The two teams would exchange touchdowns before the Bulldogs added a back-breaking score shortly before halftime to take a 20-12 halftime lead. Cherryvale’s second touchdown came from Blackburn, who snuck past the Bulldog defense and hit the endzone on a 10-yard run.
Galena began extending its lead in the third stanza with a pair of touchdowns. However, Cherryvale, trailing 34-12, would not go down without throwing a few late-game blows. The Chargers scored twice in the final period to narrow the gap to 34-24 and keep Galena in the bout until the final horn. Lane was credited with one of those two fourth-quarter touchdowns when he caught a 64-yard pass. Blackburn was credited with the final touchdown, which came on a 12-yard run.
While Galena claimed the victory, the Chargers had the upperhand on the statistics sheets. The Cherryavle offensive amassed 351 total yards (131 rushing, 220 passing) while Galena collected 305 yards (244 rushing, 61 passing). And, both teams had the same number of total plays: 58 each.
Tuesday’s game was the finale for a group of CHS seniors, including Brandon Blackburn, Justin Lane, Dennon Windsor, Kenan Booe, Robert Lane, Ryan Studebaker, Troy Steffen, Brett Thornton, Tony Cruz and Chance Baker. Hester said he was proud to share a successful season with those seniors, all of whom had not experienced a state playoff berth. Cherryvale’s last playoff experience came in the 2004 season — when this year’s seniors were in the eighth grade.

CANEY — Plans for a state playoff berth came to a sudden close for the Caney Valley High School football team when the Bullpups lost to the Galena Bulldogs, 42-16, in the class 3A district 1 playoff finale last Thursday night, Oct. 30
The loss dropped the Bullpups’ final record to 6-3 as the team missed its first state playoff tournament since 2003.
The game also was the finale for CVHS seniors Joel Nunneley, Jakob Price, Kyle Kuehn, Kyle Howard, Brad Terry, Brandon Layton, Tyler Garton, Branden Stephens and Kyler Waggoner.
“Our seniors have been in the state playoffs throughout their high school years, so it was disappointing to not make the playoffs in their final year,” said Criss Davis, Caney Valley head coach. “But our guys learned a lot of life’s lessons throughout their high school careers. They learned a big lesson in that game: nothing is given to you in life. You’ve got to go earn it.”
Galena jumped to a 21-0 lead when the Bulldogs hit the end zone on a pair of first quarter possessions before picking up a loose Caney Valley fumble and returning the pigskin into the endzone from 48 yards in the second quarter.
That fumble-returned touchdown seemed to collapse the Bullpup mast as the Caney Valley team was unable to muster a comeback against the visiting Galena squad.
Even though Caney Valley’s Jakob Price hit paydirt on a 47-yard run before halftime. Galena would answer with one touchdown before halftime to lift the Bulldogs to a 28-8 lead at intermission. The Bulldogs then scored two more touchdowns in the second half before Caney Valley’s junior varsity team scored with less than 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter to pare the final deficit margin to 26 points. Tim Shamblin was credited with scoring the final Caney Valley touchdown of the 2008 season.
Davis said Galena’s touchdown prior to the halftime break was a backbreaker.
“I think I saw a few heads drop after that touchdown,” said Davis.
Caney Valley had 214 yards in total offense (163 rushing, 51 passing) while Galena used a mixture of attacks to amass 318 offensive yards (145 rushing, 173 passing). Three of Galena’s touchdowns came on passing plays while two others were made on rushing possessions.
Turnovers also stymied Caney Valley in the game. The Bullpups gave up the ball five times (two interceptions and three fumbles) while Galena had only two turnovers.
The Bullpups did have one friend on the gridiron: the officiating crews. Officials whistled Galena 10 times in the games for 100 penalty yards, including as many as four unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Meanwhile, Caney Valley was flagged three times for 15 yards.
So, what was Caney Valley unable to do against Galena? Davis said the Bullpups faced an immovable offensive line in the Bulldogs.
“Galena had the most physical and aggressive line we’ve seen this season, even tougher than Riverton,” he said. “And, we also were unable to stop Galena’s third down conversions. Several times in the first half, Galena had a third down and long. But, we were unable to stop those conversions. And, that’s what broke our back.”

Cessna Aircraft Company employees were notified Tuesday of possible reductions in work force due to a global economic crisis.
It’s not yet known how many jobs at Cessna’s assembly plant in Independence will be impacted by the layoffs.
“Orders are slowing for jets and pistons, daily aircraft utilization across the global fleet is declining, and used aircraft inventories are rising, all indicating that the global economic and financial crisis is impacting our customers,” CEO Jack Pelton wrote in a memo to Cessna employees.
Pelton gave no specific numbers to job reductions but said the company’s 2009 production schedule would change.
The company said that while it will have a slight increase in total deliveries for 2009 compared with this year, the number will be lower than what originally was planned as airplane buyers rethink their orders.

Montgomery County Chronicle
While the nation ushered a wave of change in Tuesday’s presidential election, Montgomery County voters also showed a desire for a change of face in county courthouse politics.
Four new officials were elected to various county courthouse positions on Tuesday. In a hotly-contested race for county sheriff, former sheriff’s deputy Robert Dierks, a Republican from Coffeyville, claimed the sheriff’s seat by beating Democrat Party challenger Jerry Gilbert of Coffeyville and a write-in campaign waged by incumbent sheriff Stan Veach.
