After a massive, 2-mile-wide tornado swept through Oklahoma City suburbs on Monday afternoon, Kansas agencies and volunteers have been preparing for a request for help. While Oklahoma officials are still assessing the damages and needs, so far one volunteer from the Midway-Kansas Chapter of the American Red Cross has been scheduled to head to Oklahoma Tuesday.

Here is an excerpt from The Wichita Eagle’s article:

“We are just not getting any information in terms of specifics,” said Bev Morlan, regional executive director of the Midway-Kansas Chapter of the American Red Cross. “ …We expect to get requests for volunteers to go, but it takes time."

“As Oklahoma officials settle into what they need and identify specific needs, we’ll respond. Their immediate concern will be getting folks out of the area. Once shelters are set up, we can begin to set up places people can come and go.”

How can you help? Call the American Red Cross (800) REDCROSS or visit

Here's an excerpt from the original article on by Penny Stacey.

"Just one month has passed since the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, and some area glass shops continue to work in the area to replace the glass that was broken in the tragic incident.

Among these, Hub Glass in nearby Somerville, Mass., was one of the first businesses allowed to enter the Boylston Street area to board up (and later replace the glass) at one of the building's affected in the blast near Marathon Sports.

'It was very eerie to be there that night, " says Randy Ibbitson, general manager for Hub. "We had seven to eight guys there starting at 7 at night and they worked there 13 hours straight just to get the five floors of shatter glass boarded up.'"

Bell Mirror & Glass Celebrates 50 Years in Business

Did you read the article on  Bell Mirror & Glass Celebrating our 50 Years in Business in Wednesday May 8th's Wichita Eagle!  You can find the full article here,

Here's an excerpt from the article:

"Ruth Bell can't help tearing up a little when talking about the business she and her husband started 50 years ago this week.  After all, with three of her children working beside her today, Bell Mirror & Glass epitomizes the idea of a family business. 'I remember sitting on a carpeted table drilling holes when I was 5 or 6,' said Ruth's son Mike.

Dean Bell, who passed away in 2000, had been working for an even older competitor, when he decided to go out on his own. 'To better ourselves,' Ruth Bell, the company president, said of the move. 'We got tired of working for the other guy.'

Started in a barn on North Ride Road, Bell Mirror & Glass bought out another competitor and moved to West Douglas in the Delano neighborhood in 1966.

Today, the business custom-cut glass and mirrors for homes and businesses -- storm windows that need replacing, jewelry and trophy display cases, colored mirrors with beveled edges and other products as well. The showroom featured examples of one of the biggest trends in the industry -- glass enclosed showers."

We Thank the Wichita Eagle for such a great article!!
