Great Big WELCOME to you Bonnie, Lance and Dean.  Never mind those two - they fight and bicker constantly.  Looks like they would grow up after awhile.  >:( But then what would we do for entertainment  ??? ??? ??? - Heaven help us if Teresa and Janet get serious  :o :o

Wowie zowie! I take a few days off away from the forum and look at all the new members! It would take me past my bedtime to greet each newbie individually, so I'll do it this way:

To all those who joined the forum since July 3, a hearty and happy welcome to each of you! I hope you enjoy this place where folks laugh, reminisce, share great stories, provide comforting words and useful information, and give the world a terrific glimpse at a truly terrific place to live. You won't find a community quite ke this one anywhere else, and we all are so glad you decided to become a part of it!

Darn it, Flo.  I just tried to stand on my head and ended up throwing my back out of place. Would somebody please say "poor baby?"

Post by: Joanna on July 12, 2007, 10:53:32 PM
I, too, have been gone for a few days and don't stand a chance of catching all the new members to add my welcomes.  It seems like just last month (was it???) that we were celebrating the 200th member; and look now! 

Well, to all of you; Welcome and thanks for joining this Forum.  I hope you add to our store of information, fellowship and fun.  If you enjoy it half as much as most of us do, you're in for a treat! 

You can laugh and tease and taunt, you can even learn & share serious information.  It's really fun, though, if you present a puzzle or question then sit back and watch this group worry at it till they have it completely figured out...  Not that I would do such a thing   :angel:;):angel:

Everyone that believe's that STAND ON YOUR HEAD
Darn it, Flo.  I just tried to stand on my head and ended up throwing my back out of place. Would somebody please say "poor baby?"

Rudy, I thought newspaper guys were supposed to be more cynical than that...  Or did you misread Flo's post?  ;)  Oh well, anyone with their back out deserves a "POOR BABY" no matter how it happens. :angel:
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: flo on July 12, 2007, 11:10:19 PM
Joanna, we will figure out the answer to almost any question and post it, whether it's right or not.  ;D ;D ;D

Post by: greatguns on July 15, 2007, 07:59:00 PM
Here goes.  My name is Sally Signer and I'm married to Steve.  We live in Piedmont .  Steve works at the Severy Coop Station and I work at Sigma-Tek in Augusta, Kansas.  My ties to Elk County go back a few years as my Mother (Ernestine Edwards-Cannon) was born at Upola Kansas 86 years ago and my Dad (Cliff Cannon) and his brother bought a place near Busby Kansas in the early 40's.

I love to cooking and gardening.  Of course that is only when I'm not off on a bowling trip.  I love NASCAR.





 
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Janet Harrington on July 15, 2007, 08:36:13 PM
Sally Cannon.  I have heard that name before, but I don't know why.  If your dad was a brother to Harry Cannon you would be a cousin to Harry's kids.  I graduated with Kenny in 1972.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: greatguns on July 16, 2007, 04:52:39 PM
Janet you're right!  I'm guilty as charged. They are my cousins.  Wonder if I should have let the cat out of the bag.  Ha! Ha!
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Diane Amberg on July 16, 2007, 05:00:51 PM
  Welcome Sally!!! As an out of towner, I'm still getting names straightened out. Are you related to the Howard fire chief?
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: greatguns on July 16, 2007, 05:07:57 PM
Steve and the fire chief are cousins.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: flo on July 16, 2007, 05:24:53 PM
Thank you Sally for that bio.  I knew who you were, but a lot of the others I dont.  Can't tell by the names they use on here.  Wish they would tell a little about theirselves, so maybe I could place them.  By the way, my maiden name was Edwards, but think it is a different bunch. Did your linage of Edwards ever think they were the ones that owned Manhattan Island? Just curious
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!

Welcome Sally -I knew your mother before she became a Cannon.  Ailene and I were best friends in
high school and she dated my brother Jack - but she was ALWAYS in love with Harry. her biggest task was convincing her Dad that it was to be.  I am Jo Workman McDonald -
You will enjoy this forum -- as it seems you already are.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: indygal on July 17, 2007, 04:56:36 PM
Because there are so many new members joining up each week, I think my best bet is just doing a weekly greeting to all the newbies! So, all those who've joined in the fun since July 10, welcome to you and enjoy yourselves!

Post by: Rudy Taylor on July 21, 2007, 08:18:13 AM
Hi, Sally and welcome!

You won't believe this, but I've never been to Piedmont. I've driven by it on the highway a million times but since you don't have a wooden water tower I've never stopped (ha).  So, I'll do that soon, OK?  Post often. This place will remind you of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest."
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: flo on July 21, 2007, 03:47:20 PM
This place will remind you of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest."

and some decided to stay awhile and chat on the forum and became cuckoos themselves.  ;D ;D

Rudy if you get to Piedmont, be sure it's at lunchtime and eat at Lila's.  That is if you like just plain homecooked food and plenty of it on your plate.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: kdfrawg on July 21, 2007, 03:53:10 PM
My goodness, Flo, Lila's sounds like someplace that I would like to stop off. I suppose I should make a list...
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Teresa on July 21, 2007, 10:58:43 PM
Lila has gooood hamburgers. She makes the patty's herself, like you do at home and they are big and juicy.

Yum. Maybe I could write a travel book: Eating Your Way Through Elk County.

Even if it never sold, it would be fun, and I could write off the trip.

 ;D
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Jo McDonald on July 22, 2007, 11:40:53 AM
You would need to write off the trip - because you would need extra cash to buy new britches and shirts --- That food they are talking about it lip smackin' good!
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: desertlilydarla on July 22, 2007, 12:00:51 PM
I hear most of the people from Kansas are real sweet people.  You seem to eat more sugar then the people in the southwest.   That's my opinion!!
 I can send frawg all my receipts for my baking goods and he can use them as a write off, .....saying he is try out the recipes that he collect along the way.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: kdfrawg on July 22, 2007, 12:06:47 PM
Jo, you're probably right. Anyway, that write-off thing isn't all it's cracked up to be. It pretty much only works if you already have a lot of money. When you're primarily broke, like a certain frawgie we all know, then there's not anything to write off from!

 ;D
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Wilma on July 22, 2007, 12:18:55 PM
Frawgie, you might have to change the name of your book.  Piedmont and Lila's is in Greenwood County, but just barely.  We Elk Countians consider Piedmont a sister, anyway.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: kdfrawg on July 22, 2007, 12:23:07 PM
Hmmm. How about Eating Your Way Around and Through Elk County ? I think the "around" will let me get by with Piedmont. Besides, as Jo says, by the time I've done all the research, I'll be "around" frawg.

 ;D
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: indygal on July 27, 2007, 03:49:22 PM
Just pokin' in for a moment to say howdy to all the new members who've joined the forum in the last week or so! I apologize for not extending a personal welcome to each one, but I do hope you know the welcome is sincere, just the same.

That's all.....carry on!

I can't wait to eat a burger at Lila's.

I may try it tomorrow (Monday).

Everyone likes to find a treasure in a small town, ya know?
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!

It would make a good story for the paper, too, Rudy, but you probably already figured on that.

a big forum welcome to all you new members.  Go to roll call in the coffee shop and tell us a little about yourself.  We're also a curious bunch.  and OMG Kjell and jkbell - hope I can keep those straight  :-\
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Teresa on July 31, 2007, 11:34:21 AM
Kjell is pronounced Shell..  Like the oil company (**w/o the $$$) :'(
but they do have the visual of looking alike.


welcome all members..
(http://www.cascity.com/howard/animations/138.gif)
I wish I had the time to visit with each and every one of you personally to welcome you here, but the day only has so many minutes in it..
But I do want to say to you ..
Come on in and make yourself at home. I see so many on the street that say that they love this forum and how they like to read.. but they don't post! They say that they don't have anything that anyone would want to hear..and it isn't important stuff.
Well... ahhhh excuse me.... but~~~~~
 If you read about half of what is posted.........ahhhhhh.. I would say that not too much of it is 'important'..  ::)

We just like to gather together once or twice a day to chat a bit and then get back to our lives at hand..
 So I tell all you new people.
 Stop in..Post once or twice.. comment on something.. doesn't have to be about anything major or earth shattering.

 But what is nice about new people that post is that it gives the rest of us a chance to make a new friend..
 ( and most of us need all we can get...   ;))

** And I was nice and didn't mention Ta Ta's name... bbbuuuuttttt if the shoe fits.. ;D ;D** :P
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: flo on July 31, 2007, 04:12:53 PM
maybe what you say isn't important, but........ ::) ::) ;)  anyhow, new members, please post. That will give us something new to talk and comment about... or you can just comment on what we been rattling about so far.  SO HOW BOUT IT   8) :angel:
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: flo on August 20, 2007, 11:39:09 AM
hey, all you new members in the last few weeks.  Greetings and salutations.  If you go to the "COFFEE SHOP" there is a thread there called 'ROLL CALL TO ALL MEMBERS".  True, it gets a little off track sometimes, as do all the subjects, but it's original intention was so that new members could write a short narative and let us know a little about themselves.  Ties to Elk Co. - where are you now - something about your likes and dislikes - well, you get the idea.  Heck some of you might be relations of mine and if so, I want to know.

Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: W. Gray on January 26, 2008, 05:34:15 PM
Sent an Email today.

It has been 38 years since I was in the 7th and I am not sure what happened to the unit after the fall of Saigon.

Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: W. Gray on January 26, 2008, 09:30:26 PM
Turns out, jima444 is not from Elk County but lives in Florida.

He googled “seventh finance section” and came up with my post about death money while I was with the 7th Finance Section in Vietnam.

He was looking for a CW4 Gray who was with the 7th around 1965 to 68. I arrived in 1970 but I don’t recall ever seeing the name. Additionally, finance warrant officers were extinct by the late 60s.

A CW4 is a Chief Warrant Officer, 4th level, equivalent to a major. CW5 is the limit for warrant officer rank.

Warrant Officers are the “proud but few” with all the benefits and perks of a commissioned officer.

Whereas commissioned officers are considered to be leadership and management generalists, warrant officers are highly specialized technical experts, trainers, and advisors within their chosen field. They do not stray from that field and normally do not assume command.

During Vietnam, the bulk of helicopter pilots were warrant officers. One of them became enraged at what was happening as the My Lai massacre unfolded and tried saving several women and children.

Post by: sixdogsmom on January 27, 2008, 12:17:57 AM
When I was in school, I had an instructor that was a former Marine Chief Warrant Officer. What began as a pretty serious conflict of ideals ended being a mutual admiration society. Dick Hammersly was a great man, and it took a while for me to realise that he was testing to see if I could cope with the barriers I would encounter in the 'real world'. Apparently I passed when I assured him in class one day that I knew what **** was when I found it, or when I heard it. Ever after he was quite respectful to me, and we became very close associates.  He could not believe when I declined to work for him as lab assistant. I had already entered a student program by that time and just did not have the time for it. Go Marines!

I have noticed that the latest member is not being posted as the latest member at the time they become a member.  Our latest member is johnnie.  johnnie joined us on 11-25.  The latest member posted before johnnie was Patriot who became a member on 10-26.  Since then there have been 16 other people join us, such as Barack Obama on 11-25, cataloglady on 11-28, Earl Wayne Allen on 10-29, Becki-Eck on 11-04.  However, none of these people since Patriot, have posted so there was no way to know that they had joined us. 

Therefore, I wish to extend a warm and hearty welcome to each and every new member to whom there has been no "Welcome to our Forum".  You were not overlooked by the older members.  We were simply not told about you.  So WELCOME, please join in our posting, also.  Every new voice should be heard.
Title: Re: WELCOME ALL NEW MEMBERS!!!
Post by: Wilma on December 10, 2009, 10:46:31 AM

We have more new members; soonermom, buffy, louise and MCaldwell.  I would almost bet that soonermom lives in Oklahoma and, buffy, how is the vampire slaying lately?

It is always nice to have new members.  It makes me wonder what it is about this forum that made you decide to join.  It would be nice if you would take the time to tell us.

Ah, I see that we have a new latest member posted.  However, there have been several whose names have not made it to the little notice that says latest member.  Please don't think that we are ignoring new members.  You are all just as welcome as you can be.  We look forward to hearing from you, too.  Being a member gives you the right to get on here and tell us all what you think of us and anything else you want to say.  Please do, loud and often.

To all my friends and family here on the forum, I would like to say I am glad to be back on the EKC forum.  Sodbuster is David Alexander of the Winn Family of Howard. Also, posting periodically will be Dania and Daria. They are my nurse and physical therapist and are twin sisters. Since they tell me what to do every day I will let them post what they want about themselves.  They both went to KU and are from Israel. I call them my drill Seargents.

Hello Diane. Thanks so much for the card when I was recovering after the fire. You and many of my forum friends helped me through the difficult time while I was in the hospital.

Everyone thank you so much. I have missed you all.  January 2nd 2009 was the date of the fire when I was making tacos. Almost killed myself.  For those of you not sure if God exists, let me tell you he does.  We had a good series of conversations during my coma. He didn't awnser all my questions , but I know he helped me out.

I didn't read this thread first. So I responded to you on another one.
David, I am so glad you made it through your trial. They do make you
stronger.............you do wonder if you are going to make it, but if
you hang on to your faith you will get through one way or another.
Do post here as much as you are able. A lot of us are on Facebook
too and would enjoy you there, too.
God bless you

I wasn't going to do this, but the Devil intervened.

We have a new member, aCarlHollowayh.  The a before the name made me wonder why would someone start with an a, then what seems to be his real name?  The only explanation I can find is so his name will be close to the top of the Member's List.

We have a new member and I am anxious to hear from him/her.  With the name of readyaimduck, I am wondering what you are going to be saying.

now Wilma.....I have read all of most posts....there are radicals, exiters, remembrance, and just plain "I'm sorry, I was wrong"  ( although that doesn't happen that often.)    I have my favorites to read and learn/respond. I have my ones to stay away and just "keep my head down and shut up!"  Thank you for the welcome.   ready

screw the spelling   you get what I am saying...I have 'listened' to you all bicker and argue and dare for 1 year.   
I am in the same situation as all:   "If you don';t like it, go to the meetings and speak!".   "I you don't like this area because we speak the truth then move!"   "well, I heard........"   (that one gets me evertime!

Don't get me wrong Wilma, I am being educated as to the workings in our area: a 5th generation SEK citizen.   I now know what its to be what I thought as a kid...to be proud of this area.   This forum...   supports it, and I also have a clue as to who thwarts it....Just don't care for the gossip....ready

The first thing that catches my eye when I get on the forum is the latest member.  For some reason this newest one intrigues me.  I get the name, it might be for real.  The 52 could be the age, the year of birth, the year of graduation..........., but the 8 completely eludes me.

Sue, would you help me out here?

How brilliant of you to think of that.  I had a pm suggesting the same thing.  Can't imagine why I didn't think of it.

Hi! My name is Gabriel, and my family lived in Howard for many years, but left back around 2000. I currently live in Wichita. I've been feeling more and more nostalgic in recent years, and I thought this looked like a fun place to hear some stories and perhaps see some old pictures to satisfy my craving for what will always feel like home.

Welcome Gabriel.
Check out the "Good ole Days' Category.  Lots of pictures and stories there!
