A crossing guard at the intersection of 1st and Oregon streets has been a welcome sight to Sabetha Elementary School parents and students before and after school. Pictured above, Pat Rodecap acts as crossing guard for these parents and students after school on Friday, August 22. Coordinating with SES Principal Matt Garber, Sabetha Police Chief Robert Wahwasuck and the Sabetha Police Department have taken on the duty of scheduling crossing guards for the heavily used school intersection. “Pat Rodecap, the guard you have seen on duty, graciously has said that he will perform the duty as much as is needed, but yes we would like some more volunteer help as I hate to put such a burden on Pat, and I know that there will be days that he might just need a break or it conflicts with his schedule,” Wahwasuck said. He said anyone interested should contact him at 785-284-2158. Wahwasuck said the crossing guard will be posted at the 1st and Oregon intersection each day before and after school.

Changed location of USPS outdoor mailbox location worries Police Chief

The Sabetha United State Postal Service Office moved its mail drop boxes from a inset driveway off of Virginia Street to in front of the Post Office on 9th Street. The boxes sit on the east side of street, meaning that to drop mail a driver would have to pull into oncoming traffic in order to drop from the driver's side. This move has created a social media uproar, as well as inciting a letter to the editor in this week's Herald.

Best exercise ever

It’s always interesting when a client asks me to pin down a single exercise as the one that will help lose the most fat or sculpt the quickest. I’m always slow to answer. You see, I’m acutely aware of the fact that though an exercise may be perfect for Client A, it may not be the best choice for Client B—which makes me hesitant to label any exercise as the universal best. That being said, there are exercises that are better than others. And, yes, there are... Read More
