IRS SCAM: is one of the scams now prevalent in the area. Please remember to never give out any important information or numbers over the phone, ever. Ask for a call-back number and seek advice from a trusted individual before answering any questions. If the caller is threatening or pushy in any way, just hang-up. Hanging up is not bad manners; it is protecting yourself against scams.

If you should need to be off, someone will fill in. This is a wonderful service for our community and certainly helps people who do not feel like fixing a meal or just can’t because of health reasons. The saying "many hands make light work" certainly applies to this situation. Drivers need a valid driver’s license. Please call 886-3466 if you are interested.

Citizens Bank of Kansas to Provide Six Free Cosmosphere Camp Scholarships

HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Feb. 14, 2017 – Citizens Bank of Kansas (CBK) is partnering again this summer with the Cosmosphere International Science Education Center and Space Museum in Hutchinson to send six sixth graders to Cosmosphere Camp. CBK will award six scholarships – one for each of its branch locations in East Wichita, West Wichita, Kingman, Medicine Lodge, Pretty Prairie and Winfield.

Scholarship winners will attend the Cosmosphere’s Mars Academy camp, a three-day overnight camp during which students build robotic sensor platforms to navigate a Martian landscape, construct a power grid, engineer and program robots, geocache to find their survival needs and build a Martian habitat.

Available 2017 summer dates for the Mars Academy camp are June 9-11, June 16-18, June 30- July 2 (all girls camp), July 7-9, and July 21-23.

To be eligible for consideration, participants must be entering sixth grade in the Fall of 2017 and submit a 100- to 200-word original essay on "Why I want to attend Mars Space Camp at the Cosmosphere this summer." Parental consent is required and essay entries are due April 1, 2017. Those interested should email: to request a copy of the contest rules and an entry form.

"We’re excited to join the Cosmosphere in their endeavors to provide meaningful learning opportunities to students in our communities," said Jane Deterding, Chairman of the Board of Citizens Bank of Kansas. "Our own kids have attended these camps and have come home with great stories of space exploration. Any parent who would love to hear stories like that should encourage their child to participate."

Cosmosphere camps ignite curiosity. From second graders through high school seniors, Cosmosphere campers spread their wings, expand their minds, and have fun they won’t find anywhere else on earth. Campers have the opportunity to build robots and rockets, SCUBA train like astronauts, participate in interplanetary missions to solve a crisis, learn to fly, understand the medical demands of long duration space travel…and those are just some of ways kids can spend their summer at Cosmosphere camps.
