The weather has given us a bit of everything here in Green. Extreme wind, extreme cold, everything except humidity! Traces of rain with the wind, and traces of snow with the cold. Green Methodist was canceled last week due to extremely cold temperatures, and Green Christian School was canceled on December 15 due to extreme winds, and again on January 6 due to extreme cold. It might just be me, but I don’t remember school ever being canceled when I was a kid. If there was enough snow, we would play fox and geese in the school yard. People in the countryside could decide for themselves whether they could go to school or not, but the school was not canceled. Can you imagine trying to educate parents in the 1950s? You couldn’t put it on TV or send a group text or send emails or Facebook or the school webpage. I remember using a call chain until the 80s and 90s when I had kids in school. How the world has changed! Whether it’s good or bad, I’ll let everyone decide for yourself.

After Christmas Bob and I went to Salina and did something that I had wanted to do for a long time.

We stopped at Long-McArthur Ford where I looked for traces of the McArthur Ford story, which started in green with Hubert A. McArthur around 1913, when he sold his general merchandise store McArthur and Wilson . I was not deceived ! I found portraits in the driveway of the Ford dealership of HA McArthur, his sons North C. McArthur, Rex McArthur, North R. McArthur and West K. McArthur. I was able to visit HA McArthur’s great-great-granddaughter, Ashley McArthur, and found out that the entire McArthur family works at Long-McArthur Ford. It was Hubert’s son, North, who moved to Salina and in 1949 he founded Long-McArthur Ford with Philip Long.

My question has been answered. Yes, the McArthurs of Salina are interested in their story that started in Green. Today I’m going to tell you a little bit about Hubert A. McArthur, born in 1869 in Vermont. He came to Kansas with his parents Clarence and Maria McArthur in 1879 and they settled north of Green where he converted and joined the Baptist Church (I guess it was the Fancy Creek Baptist Church ). He married Helen Wilson in 1898. Their two children were North McArthur and Cleo McArthur Yeager.

Cleo was the mother of Virginia Wohler and the grandmother of Peggy, Bill and Cindy Wohler (who grew up next door to me), making them HA McArther’s great-grandchildren.

Hubert A. McArthur died at his home in Green on May 10, 1938. He has been described as friendly, well loved and respected, a good neighbor and friend, leaving his family with the rich legacy of a good name. He took part in the progress of the small town (Green) where he took up residence for so many years. He was Green’s first mayor, serving from 1908 to 1913. When I research the early Greens, I find the McArthur name on just about every board to improve the town, by providing electricity, water, telephones, etc. tidbit was finding something I didn’t expect on Long-McArthur Ford’s wall in Salina. A framed document hung just inside the door. This was the 1915 buyer’s order and agreement for the first automobile McArthur Ford sold to Green in 1915! And it was sold to my step-grandfather John Friederich! A 1916 T Touring model for $ 440 plus a delivery charge of $ 29 for $ 469! Wouldn’t I like to know what happened to him!

If you would like to visit the museum, you can call me at 785-944-3334 (leave a message) or email me at bevcaley@gmail.com. If you have any items to donate or lend to the museum, that would be greatly appreciated!

Armstrong County Adds Option For Those In Need Of Help To Text 911 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/armstrong-county-adds-option-for-those-in-need-of-help-to-text-911/ Mon, 10 Jan 2022 05:01:00 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/armstrong-county-adds-option-for-those-in-need-of-help-to-text-911/

Residents of Armstrong County now have the option of texting to report an emergency to 911, public safety officials said on Tuesday.

While the ability to text can be useful in a scenario where talking to a dispatcher could make a situation worse, the call should be the first line of communication when asking for help, said Chad Gradwell, coordinator of the dispatcher. County 911.

“It is rare, but there are cases such as break-ins with people in the home who cannot physically speak on the phone where it would be helpful,” he said.

Gradwell said data collected by 911 centers in the United States that have added the text messaging service indicates that less than 4% of requests for help are received by text.

The Federal Communications Commission requires all wireless carriers and other text messaging application providers in the country to provide emergency text messages to call centers upon request.

Gradwell said the downside to texting 911 is that, unlike calling a cell phone, it doesn’t automatically provide 911 dispatchers with the coordinates of his location.

Location information associated with a cell phone can be used to identify its location within a 60 to 90 foot radius, he said.

Text messages sent to 911 receive an automated response asking for the texter’s address or location, he said.

“Once we receive an SMS, the person will receive an automated response asking for their address or location,” Gradwell said. “After that, it’s like a phone-to-phone communication with the dispatcher able to text the person on the other end of the phone. “

If someone doesn’t know where they are, dispatchers can always send help “but it will take a little more work.”

Gradwell said adding SMS to the 911 system required installing new software and was being coordinated with surrounding counties.

Over the past couple of years those of us working in community education have had to get creative in the way we deliver programming and cut down on many of the typical wonderful things we do. Now we’re delighted that our guide is filling up with more and more activity as we now work to rebuild the lineup.

Ironically, as I look at the mountains of snow already piled up in our parking lot, we are already starting to work on summer programs and it’s fun to be able to think about longer days and warmer months.

patrol completes post-shipment investigation | Missouri News http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/patrol-completes-post-shipment-investigation-missouri-news/ Tue, 28 Dec 2021 12:28:00 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/patrol-completes-post-shipment-investigation-missouri-news/

JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri (AP) – The Missouri State Highway Patrol has completed an investigation into the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that began after a reporter exposed a flaw in the state’s database.

Patrol Captain John Hotz told the Post-Dispatch on Monday that the results of the investigation had been turned over to Cole County District Attorney Locke Thompson. It is still unclear whether charges will be laid.

Republican Gov. Mike Parson announced the investigation in October after a Post-Dispatch reporter informed the state of a significant data issue that has left educators’ social security numbers vulnerable to public disclosure. The newspaper has suspended publication of an article about the flaw until the state fixes it.

The Post-Dispatch obtained records through an open case request showing that the state’s education commissioner initially planned to thank the newspaper for finding the problem. Instead, the state issued a press release calling the journalist a “hacker.”

Ian Caso, president and editor of Post-Dispatch, said in October that the journalist “had done everything right”.

Communities received free ride to dispatch police – Sooke News Mirror http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/communities-received-free-ride-to-dispatch-police-sooke-news-mirror/ Sun, 26 Dec 2021 21:30:00 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/communities-received-free-ride-to-dispatch-police-sooke-news-mirror/

Sooke and seven other South Island municipalities complain about the operating costs of E-Comm’s call pickup and dispatch services. These municipalities should be the last to complain; they’ve had a really good deal for years.

Prior to the CRD building the new 911 dispatch center, the eight South Island RCMP detachments were “dispatched by” civilian RCMP dispatchers (augmented by CRD personnel). The cost of operating these services was paid for by the province (70 percent) and the federal government (30 percent) – there was no cost recovery from municipalities. Thus, contrary to the letter from the mayors, they have benefited from “free” shipping services for years, well before 2012.

Meanwhile, municipalities with their own police forces on the lower island (Vic / Esquimalt PD, Saanich, Central Saanich and Oak Bay) paid 100% of their dispatch costs without any provincial or federal support. They signed contracts with E-Comm in 2019 (Esquimalt was included with Victoria) and started paying for these services in March 2019, and have gradually phased out their own dispatch centers.

Now the province expects municipalities served by the RCMP to start paying for this service, which will put them on a level playing field. It seems fair. Why would the eight continue to receive this service for free? Rather, they should be happy to have saved a lot of money over the many years of “free” shipping services and continue to factor those costs into their 2022 budgets.

Under the Police Act, it is the responsibility of municipalities to pay for policing services – it is unfair for the province / federal government to provide dispatch services free of charge to certain municipalities (those served by the RCMP) without doing it for those who have municipal forces. The 2020 financial information statements for the five municipalities with their own forces (the first full year that the 911 center was operational) shows what they paid E-Comm for police dispatch services: Central Saanich ( $ 267,030), Oak Bay ($ 308,134), Saanich ($ 2,004,740), Victoria / Esquimalt ($ 3,502,234).

Sooke and the rest of the RCMP have had a “free ride” on this service for years and now they’re complaining? The five municipalities with their own police services are the ones that should complain.
