Flu shots becoming available Sarcoxie Township resident Ella Irbine, who is 102, received her flu shot Saturday morning at Sunnyside School from Jefferson County nurse Jody Robertson. __________________________ Philanthropy: Law students begin holiday food drive Members of Kansas University’s Black Law Students Assn. are seeking donations for their annual Thanksgiving food drive. The drive, in its 11th year, involves competitions among students as they solicit donations from faculty, staff and the community. Last year, about 100 families received food. The students are seeking canned goods, nonperishable foods, money, gift certificates and food preparation items. Donations should be taken to Green Hall on the KU campus by 5 p.m. Nov. 16. Baskets will be assembled from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 17. __________________________ Accident: Overland Park resident dies in collision near St. Louis St. Louis A Kansas man died when he rear-ended a vehicle driven by a man who had stopped to move a desk that was in the roadway, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. Richard J. Plodzien, 54, of Overland Park, Kan., died Saturday morning at St. John’s Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur. The patrol said James R. Crew, 63, had stopped on Interstate 270 near the junction with Interstate 70 to move a desk that had fallen from another vehicle. Plodzien struck Crew’s vehicle as Crew was pulling back into traffic, according to the patrol. __________________________ In remembrance: Former military chaplain, prisoner of war to be honored Fort Riley He’s already memorialized with a bronze statue, and a Wichita high school, Kapaun Mount Carmel, is named after him. Now Fort Riley will rededicate its post chapel to honor Emil Kapaun, a military chaplain who lost his life in a North Korean prison camp. The Custer Hill Chapel will be renamed Kapaun Chapel in ceremonies Monday afternoon at the Kansas Army post. Kapaun resisted the indoctrination efforts of his captors and suffered regular beatings for ministering to his fellow soldiers. He often gave what little food he had to the sick and wounded and would sneak from hut to hut to hold prayer services, said Lt. Col. David Kenehan, current chaplain of Fort Riley’s 24th Infantry Division. Military records indicated that after 202 days in captivity, Kapaun suffered a blood clot in his leg and was denied medicine. He died May 23, 1951. Kapaun’s life and service are an example for all those in the military, Kenehan said.
