Kenneth A. Huffmeyer

first_imgKenneth “Kenny” A. Huffmeyer, age 90, of Osgood passed away early March 3, 2018, surrounded by his family. He was born on May 7, 1927, the son of the late Herman and Sena (Klingworth) Huffmeyer outside of Osgood. He grew up in a household with his parents and seven siblings. He was a graduate of the Napoleon High School Class of 1946. He was known to all of us as Kenny, but his mother always called him Kenneth. Kenny, in his teenage years, was active in 4-H and as a young adult took part in the 5 Acre Corn contest in Ripley County.Kenny had several loves and passions in his life. He was a lifetime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and this led him to meet Jane Ricketts and they were married on August 25, 1951, and they recently celebrated their 66th year of marriage. When you want to think about the American Dream and living it out, they built a family and home thru diligence and hard work. They lived outside of Napoleon and purchased their first farm in 1953 and lived on it until building a new home and moving in it in 1985. The bond between these two remained as strong as ever up until the very end.Kenny’s heart and soul was being a farmer, raising both crops and livestock. He lived by the theory that if the sun was up, then there was something to do. He was indeed a steward of the land, being one of the very first in the area to practice no-till farming. He was awarded the Ripley County Soil and Water Conservation Farmer of the Year. His membership in the church saw him involved in teaching Sunday school, singing in the choir, and served several terms on the church council. He was also a member of the local Farm Bureau.Kenny is survived by his wife, Jane, son Larry (Charlene), daughter Lavita Huffmeyer (Tom Godar) of Osgood, grandchildren; April (Jeremy) Hughes of Osgood, Sara (Jeff) Page of Trafalgar, Amber (Eric) Peetz of Batesville, and Bill (Julie) Huffmeyer of Osgood, and great grand children; Kasin, Landin, Braydin, and Lynkin and Addysin Hughes, Samual and Emmett Page, Jackson and Ella Peetz, and August and Clay Huffmeyer.He was preceded in death in by his parents, and siblings Mabel Lauber, Helen Schulenburg, Mildred Oller, Martha Hartwell, Calvin Huffmeyer, Elnora VansOsdol, and Norman Huffmeyer.Visitation will be held from 4:00-7:00 pm on Monday, March 5, 2018, at Neal’s Funeral Home in Osgood. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Napoleon at 11:00 am., with the body lying in state from 10:00 am. until service. Memorials may be made to the church in care of Neal’s Funeral Home. ​last_img read more

Kind-hearted Letterkenny boy (10) unites community for charity

first_imgAn inspirational schoolboy from Letterkenny has raised over €1,500 for children in need via a mysterious donation box.James Curran (10) is the son of Jaycee’s XL shop owners Seamus Curran and Sharon Blake.Last summer, a large jar appeared on the counter of the popular Long Lane shop. The writing simply said ‘Children in Need’. James’ parents didn’t know what his goals were at first, but it soon emerged that he simply wanted to make a difference to other young people’s lives.Customers soon got to know James’ story and the donations built up in the ‘mystery jar’.The mystery charity boxAs the jar became too heavy to lift, James consulted with the other children of the Long Lane area to decide to donate the money to Mary’s Meals and to a children’s cancer charity.Father Eamonn Kelly was happy to get involved and help James count up the total amount – which has reached over €1,500. This would equate to helping over 100 children through Mary’s Meals.Young James has been praised as a ‘great wee man’ for his charity efforts. Fr Kelly and James Curran. Photo: Jaycee’s XL Long Lane LetterkennyHis mum Sharon told Donegal Daily: “James is an only child and he is constantly thinking about other people. He is a very thoughtful young fellow.“We don’t know where his idea came from but he watches Children in Need every year. He got the children of the Long Lane involved to decide on where the money would go. He was adamant that it would go towards helping children,” Sharon added.Sharon said this show of kindness is a true reflection of the Long Lane community, as so many locals supported the initiative.“The Long Lane is a great community, the kids have been great and everyone was happy to support when they got to know the story,” she said.Now, one community will be helping another as part of the total will be used to feed schoolchildren in some of the world’s poorest communities. And James is currently considering which Irish children’s cancer charity will benefit from the second donation.“We are privileged to call him our son,” said Sharon. “The shop is named after James – Jay Cee – and he’s the main man here.”Kind-hearted Letterkenny boy (10) unites community for charity was last modified: August 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

More concerns for the safety of all Thai airlines

first_imgThe Federal Aviation Administration in America announced Tuesday that it was downgrading Thailand’s aviation safety rating to Category 2 because the country did not comply with international standards. In stripping it of the Category 1 rating it received in 1997, the FAA said Thailand’s civil aviation authority failed to meet “minimum international standards.” Category 1 means that the country complies with International Civil Aviation Organization standards.The decision means Thai airlines will be banned from opening new routes to the United States or expanding existing ones.Whilst no Thai airlines currently operate direct routes to the U.S, the concern is that the FAA’s downgrades may be matched by other global aviation authorities such as the European Union(EU) which would have a significant impact on flag carrier Thai Airways operations.  The EU used an FAA downgrade of Indonesia’s aviation-safety standards to impose a total flight ban on that country’s airlines for several years. The country came under scrutiny when the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO),  “red flagged” Thailand in June over safety concerns. AirlineRatings.com allocates two of its seven stars for safety to meeting or exceeding all 8 ICAO audit parameters . The ‘red flagging’ of the country in June led to an automatic deduction of 2 stars for all Thai registered airlines and today’s news has resulted in a further one star deduction.Thai Airways and subsidiary Thai Smile remain the highest scoring airline for safety in Thailand with a score of 4/7.  Following this is Thai Orient and Bangkok air on three stars and on just two stars, Nok Air and AirAsia Thailand. Suggested Read: How we work out our seven star safety rating system and why In response to the FAA’s decision, Thailand’s prime minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha, ordered a swift overhaul of his country’s aviation systems.He acknowledged the setback could undermine confidence in the military leadership that seized power in a 2014 coup.”Therefore, all must join hands to bring peace to the country,” he said, according to the Bangkok Post. “Don’t try to pick a quarrel, because doing so will not lead us out of crisis.”The country’s leading international carrier, Thai Airways, issued a statement defending its safety record.It said the decision would have no impact on its business or customers as it ceased its only U.S. destination flight, to Los Angeles, in October, although it continues to operate code share connections.”Thai confirms its commitment to aviation safety standards and assures all that Thai operates with the highest international aviation safety standards,” it said.last_img read more
