Lighting the Night

Attractions in the Rocky Pond Christmas Lights display in Belleville continue to grow, as well as many decorated homes around the city. At right, Sunday’s “super moon” illuminated the Rocky Pond display (shown here in a combination of two separate Telescope photos.) Supermoons happen when a full moon occurs at a point in its orbit at which it is closest to Earth. This makes the moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. Below left is a lighted Rudolph Tree at the home of Curtis and Mary Ann Klima south on K, while Mike and Jan Nondorf, 1319 26th ST feature a lighted party in their front yard.

Concordia man is new county attorney

By Deb Hadachek Telescope editor

Concordia attorney Justin Ferrell was nominated by Republic County Republicans to fill a post left vacant by the resignation of Republic County Attorney Marlea James. Ferrell’s name will go to the governor for formal approval. Under Kansas law, since James resigned before the mid-point of her four year term, Ferrell’s appointment is only for one year.

The post will be eligible for election in the 2018 midterm election. Ferrell told the Republican convention he will work fulltime as Republic County Attorney. He is also prosecutor for the City of Concordia, a job he will continue. He has been associated with the Brewer Law Firm in Concordia for about a year. He gave no indication that he plans to move to Republic County, but said he is “17 minutes away”.

The toys collected at these points are then picked up by Toy Bank volunteers or workers at the Citizens National Bank, which is the bank that spearheads this project, and taken to the basement of the Golden Bell Haven.

Prison term ordered for KORA internet violations

A former Belleville man has been sentenced in Republic County District Court to a total of 42 months in prison for violating the Kansas Offender Registration Act.

In July, Darrick Klima, Salina, pled no contest to two counts of violating the KORA.

The counts, filed in 2015, allege that Klima violated conditions of the KORA by failure to report that he used a Facebook page for Dirt Source Racing and had an email account registered to his name. He was originally charged with nine violations, but the other counts were dismissed through plea negotiations.
