Spring Social at Meadowcreek Park

By Alexandra Cannon

 

United States Eventing Association’s Spring Social took place March 18 and 19 at Kosse’s Meadowcreek Park, drawing competitors from Texas as well as other states.

For those unfamiliar with eventing, it can be described as an equestrian triathlon, consisting of riders and their horses competing in dressage, stadium jumping, and cross-country. The scoring and point system is cumulative with each part of the competition, so mistakes are costly and can keep you from advancing to the next stage.

“You don’t get ribbons for doing well here or there or there,” said Martha Morgan, mom to one of the competitors. ”You just get one for all three of ‘em.”

Rita's Reflections

Rita's Reflections by Rev. Dr. Rita Sims, Pastor of First United Methodist Church, Kosse

 

In the early twentieth century, Japan invaded, conquered, and occupied Korea.  The Japanese boarded up the churches and ejected most foreign missionaries.  The Japanese conquerors did not allow churches to meet and jailed many of the key Christian leaders.

One pastor persistently entreated his local Japanese police chief for permission to meet for services. The police chief finally offered to unlock his church for just one meeting.  Long before dawn, many Christians made their way to the church. They bravely passed the staring eyes of their Japanese captors as they travelled to worship.

We are Here For Life

We are Here For Life

 

In the event of a cardiac arrest, time is of the essence.  The longer the victim goes without CPR, the less their chance of survival.  The City of Kosse is taking life safety and survival very seriously.  On Monday, January 23, 2017 Kosse held a CPR and first aid class at the Community Center, taught by Air-Evac.  All city personnel including the office staff, police and public works became certified in CPR and basic first aid.  A representative from each of the three restaurants and city organizations also became certified.
