MOUNDRIDGE – Delays have kept Curt Zimmer from moving his business, CRS Enterprises, into the Moundridge Industrial Park.

The Moundridge City Council had approved Zimmer’s request for commercial property during its August meeting.

Zimmer received a lot – 200 feet by 250 feet – fron the city at Avenue C and Fourth Street. It is south of the Custom Rollforming Corporation. CSR Enterprises’ address is 325 E. Fourth Street.

Zimmer said delays started during survey work for the building.

“The building is up,” Zimmer said. “The city doesn’t have all the utilities out.”

MOUNDRIDGE - The family of 19-year-old Skyler Price, a Moundridge High graduate, has set up a Go Fund Me account www.gofundme.com/funds-for-skyler to help with medical bills following a car accident on March 28. 

Price was trapped inside his burning automobile after losing control of his vehicle near the intersection of NW 36th and Emma Creek Road.  Price was rescued from the vehicle and transported to St. Francis Medical Center in critical condition by Hesston Fire/EMS.  

Price’s mother, Genell Kluss-Price, said Skyler himself was a volunteer firefighter. Ron Blaylock Moundridge Fire Chief, said Price, “was an Explorer when he was in high school, a junior firefighter.” 

According to Kluss-Price, Skyler was just beginning to find his way into adulthood, renting a house in Moundridge with friend Coby Neufeld and was only three days into his new job at AAA Window Repair in Newton. 

According to the company co-owner, Janice Tobisch, “He had only been with the company a week, but he seemed very excited to have the job. He was always ready and firing on all eight cylinders. If he can make a full recovery, he is welcome to come back once he’s all healed up.” 

Kluss-Price said her son did not have health insurance, having recently been dropped from her policy and the insurance offered through his new job had not taken effect.

The Inman Arts Council and Inman Junior/Senior High School are bringing a new kind of film festival to the community on Saturday, April 14 at the IHS Auditorium with film premieres beginning at 6:30 p.m.. 

Inman audio visual teacher Kim Baldwin said students have been working on short films for three weeks. A handful of the films were submitted to the Kansas Student Technology Leaders (KSTL) competition in Manhattan while others are independent submissions from students outside the audio-visual class.  

“Some of these videos are highly dramatic, and others are documentary-style,” said Baldwin. 

One of the films, Baldwin said, is a documentary of interviews with three Inman educators who have been with the district for 25-years or more. 

Diane Miller, Inman Arts Council Director, said the event will be an opportunity for residents to see students‘ creations, as well as see Farm Kids “The Ghost Of Inman High” for the first time since it was originally screened in 2003.
