Pam Martin presents 'Christmas Blooms' to Great Bend Garden Club - Great Bend Tribune

John Eldon Montgomery 1925

State University. John began teaching in Junction City, where he married Patricia Jean Platt in 1954. They moved first to Limon, Colo., then to Great Bend in 1956, where John taught school at Roosevelt Junior High School until his retirement in 1989. He took great satisfaction in instructing students in drivers’ education courses and coaching a variety of athletic teams.  In 2005, John and Patricia moved to Lawrence. Since retiring, John and Patricia enjoyed traveling and spent their winters in Mesa, Ariz., and summers in Estes Park, Colo.John is survived by his wife, Patricia, of Lawrence; son, Steve (Jane), of Spring Hill; daughter Terri Schenkel (Steve), of Great Bend; and son, Chris (Margaret), of Richmond, Va.; as well as seven grandchildren.John loved sports and reveled in the transformation of his beloved KSU Wildcat football team from doormat to national power. He and Patricia attended countless sporting events and cheered for their children and so many others during their many years in Great Bend. John’s distinct voice could be heard in the largest of crowds. He watched every pitch of the 2014 post-season run by the Kansas City Royals to the World Series. John never tired of telling how he sank a long putt or chipped in to win a coke from his golfing buddies. His love of golf was passed down from his father and on to John’s sons and grandsons. John was an avid reader and never content to accept others’ versions of history. He did his own research. John was strong and of an independent mind with clear opinions he would share, sometimes without invitation. He will be so missed.

Kansas Tourism: Check Out What's Tops on Kansans' Bucket Lists

Some are among the state's acclaimed attractions, such as Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge near Great Bend, Chicken Mary's and Chicken Annie's restaurants in the Pittsburg area, Abilene's Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum and the Kansas State Capitol in Topeka. Other more-surprising ones range from the Home on the Range Cabin near Smith Center to Guy & Mae's Tavern in Williamsburg.While eateries, museums and artsy attractions are among the favorites, Kansans seek out outdoorsy, sporty and festival fun, too. The toughest tackle the grueling, 200-mile Dirty Kanza, hikers trek the trails at Konza Prairie, paddlers ply the Kansas River and bluegrass fans world-wide flock to Winfield's annual Walnut Valley Festival."We're hoping to get the word out about all the unique, scenic and fun experiences the state offers," said Craghead. "And while 70 choices is just a start, it's a great introduction to what's special about Kansas!"Kansas Tourism is continuing the Bucket List promotion in 2016 with a monthly social media contest. People visiting any of the 70 locations can take a photo at the site and post it to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #KSBucketList (one entry per person per location). One winner will be drawn at random each month and awarded a prize, and a grand prize winner will be announced at the end of 2016. The Bucket List is available at Kelli HilliardPhone:  (785) 296-4922Email:  KelliHilliard@TravelKS.comLogo -   ...
