Beaulah Mae Eastman joined her best friend and partner in heaven on April 10, 2021 at peace in her Wichita, Kansas home.  Her youngest daughter was by her side, and she was in her 93rd year.  She was born on October 2, 1927 in the oil boom town of Whittenburg, Texas to Virgil Harp and Anna (Clark) Harp-Littrell.  Beaulah's family moved to Grenola, Kansas after the death of her father in an industrial accident when she was 7 years old.

Beaulah's life was one of deep love for the family's land and heritage in Elk County, Kansas where she first met Billy J. "Bill" Eastman, her husband of 73 years who passed away on November 29, 2020.   This was the site of treasured family moments with her  husband, children, grandbabies, and friends.   She had a biting wit and deep intellect and was known for her financial acumen and ability to plan for every event life presented her.  Since the 1950s, Beaulah alongside Bill and her children, were member of the First Christian Church of Haysville, Kansas.  She was an important presence at Sunday sermons, youth clubs, Bible studies, Vacation Bible Schools, and Easter and Christmas Eve services.
It was at the First Christian Church where Bill and Beaulah met their best friends and laid a foundation of faith for their children.

Beaulah was the loving mother of five, Karen (David) Everhart, William "Chip" (Sherri) Eastman, Tom (Teri) Eastman, Mark (Natalie) Eastman, and Jeanette (Patrick) Falley.  She was the dear sister of Doris McClure, brother-in-law (Marcita) Eastman, Carolyn Eastman, and Marge Eastman.  She is fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and many good friends.

Beaulah was passionate and proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, numbered 45 and climbing, living a life in devotion to their safety and future.  She instilled in her grandchildren a deep affection for learning and service to others, touting to her friends the education and jobs in the ranks of her grandbabies - Shockers, Wildcats, Jayhwks, and more.  Her grandchidlren are mothers, fathers, partners, and police officers.  They lead nonprofits and community organizations.  They are teachers, financial advisors, ministers, marketers, and consultants.  Her grandchildren play football, are engineers, administrators, community leaders and medical professionals.  The love she gave to those closest to her ripples far beyond the quiet hills of her Elk County pasture.   

Funeral services were held on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at the First Christian Church in Haysville, Kansas.  Committal services followed at 2:00 p.m. at Green Lawn Cemetery in Grenola, Kansas.  A memorial has been established at the First Christian Church, Attn: Playground, 7465 South Meridian, Haysville, Kansas 67060.  Webb-Shinkle Funeral Home was entrusted with arrangements.

Politics / Covid-19 Where Are You?

A clinical scientist and immunologist-virologist at a southern California laboratory says he and colleagues from 7 universities are suing the CDC for massive fraud. The reason: not one of 1500 samples of people tested “positive” could find Covid-19. ALL people were simply found to have Influenza A, and to a lesser extent Influenza B. This is consistent with the previous findings of other scientists, which we have reported on several times.

‘When we sent the rest of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a couple of the labs at the University of California, they came up with the same result: NO COVID. They found Influenza A and B. Then we all asked the CDC for viable samples of Covid. The CDC said they can’t give them, because they don’t have those samples.’

Here is the complete story;

Trusting the government and politicians can be fatal.
Politics / “Public Health” is the Health of the State . . .
« Last post by redcliffsw on April 14, 2021, 07:40:14 AM »

Once the “public health” bureaucracy declared a pandemic, millions of Americans instantly turned into mental infants, eager for the D.C. bureaucracy to become their real mommies and daddies and protect them from the big bad coronavirus wolf.  As Bourne explained:
“There is . . . in the feeling toward the state a large element of pure filial mysticism.  The sense of insecurity, the desire for protection, sends ones desire back to father and mother . . . .  It is not for nothing that one’s state is still thought of as Father or Motherland.  The [pandemic] has shown that nowhere under the shock of danger have these primitive childlike attitudes failed to assert themselves . . .”

Or as yours truly has written on numerous occasions:  The purpose of government is for those who run it to plunder those who do not.

Obituaries / CUMMINGS, Lon Richard - b. October 30, 1934 - d. November 24, 2020
« Last post by patyrn on April 13, 2021, 08:53:47 AM »
Lon Richard Cummings, 86, of Moline, Kansas, passed away on November 24, 2020 after a short illness.  He joined in Heaven his wife of 66 years, Catherine Cummings who passed away March 20, 2020.  Lon was born October 30, 1934 in Winfield, Kansas to Paul and Mary Cummings.

Lon was raised by his grandfather on the family farm in Moline, Kansas and is preceded in death by his three brothers, Larry, Bob, and Jerry.  Lon left home at the age on 17 in March of 1952 and joined the United States Air Force, vowing to return to Moline someday and raise cattle.

While on temporary duty near Kansas City in December of 1953, Lon met his lifelong love.  It has been told that Lon and a buddy were cruising the streets of Kansas City and happened to notice Catherine on the street corner waiting for a bus.  Lon kicked his buddy out of the car, turned around, and the rest is history.  Lon and Catherine were married on February 28, 1954 in a small ceremony in Kansas City, Kansas and had two sons, Richard J. Cummings and Patrick B. Cummings.

Lon proudly service in the Air Force for more than 22 years in which duties in North Africa, Korea, and Vietnam separated him from his family.  The bond between Lon and Cathy grew stronger during these times of separation.  Many of his duty assignments provided a chance for Lon and Cathy to travel to many different places including Tennessee, Germany, California, and at last stationed in Alaska.  While in Alaska, Lon not only enjoyed hunting and fishing with his sons but acquired his commercial pilot's license, bought a plane, and flew every chance he could.  Flying provided Lon the opportunity to thoroughly enjoy the majestic scenery that Alaska had to offer.  It was not  uncommon for him to fly out on a Saturday morning to a remote lake and stop in at the local lodge for breakfast and coffee.  Not wanting to be separated from the family, Lon retired from the Air Force on August 1, 1974 and remained in Alaska until 1978.  While in Alaska, Lon purchased the family farm in Moline, Kansas from his great uncle. 

Slowly working his way back to Moline, Lon and Cahy moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma where Lon became Utilities Superintendent at Oklahoma State University.  Lon and Cathy loved the college atmosphere and became die-hard OSU Cowboy football fans.  They not only attended all the home games but traveled to bowl games as well.  When football season was over, they joined a square dance club and traveled to dances throughout Oklahoma and Texas.  Lon and Cathy began making weekend trips to their cabin at the old Moline City Lake to enjoy the peace and quiet atmosphere that the lake had to offer.

Finally in July of 1994, Lon retired from OSU and moved back to Moline.  Kansas to fulfill his lifelong dream.  Lon and Cathy bought a home and additional farmland just outside of Moline where they raised cattle for many years.  Lon became very involved in the community and served as Chairman of the Elders at Moline Christian Church, member of the Moline Cemetery Board, 56-year member of the Masonic Fraternity, member of the Eastern Star, and past Commander and member of the VFW.  Lon was also an active member of the Coalition of Retired Military Veterans that took the fight for lifetime medical benefits for all retired veterans to the Supreme Court and won.

Lon touched many peoples' lives and always saw the good in them.  He was known as a caring and giving person that would truly give you the "shirt off his back".  He was also an accomplished man, loving, husband, father, and grandfather.  He will be truly missed by all who knew his spirit and kindness.

Lon is survived by his sons, Richard J. Cummings of Moline, Kansas and Patrick (Cindy) Cummings of Rolling Prairie, Indiana; his grandchildren, Joshua (Rachel) Cummings of Crown Point, Indiana, Tonya (Lee) Hansen of Monticello, Illinois, Nicholas Cummings (United States Air Force stationed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), Caitlin Cummings of Atlanta, Georgia, and Meghan Cummings of Ballston Spa, New York; and his great-grandchildren, Noah Cummings of Crown Point, Indiana and Beau and Sloan Hansen of Monticello, Illinois.

There will be a memorial service for both Lon and Catherine on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at the Moline Christian Church in Moline, Kansas.  Inurnment will follow at the Moline City Cemetery.    In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations can be made to the Moline Christian Church and can be mailed to or left with the funeral home.  Memorial services have been entrusted to Countryside Funeral Home, 206 E.
