New information kiosk downtown built by WHS wood shop class

by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow – Visitors and residents can now find information on local organizations in a new kiosk downtown, built by the Wellington High School wood shop class.

“I thought of asking the Wellington High School wood shop class to build it because of their Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, and that it would be a useful project for them to participate in,” said Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Annarose White. “They have a class every semester that works on a special project.”

All materials to build the kiosk were purchased locally, minus the brochure holders themselves, which were mounted by True Value/Mill Creek Lumber. The project was paid for by the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB.

Wellington High School Industrial Arts instructor Ryan Elders stated:

“There was never a hesitation about whether or not to help the city out. It’s an opportunity for our students to build something they could comeback years from now and see. The students really enjoyed designing the kiosk and building it.  Any chance we have in the future of building a project for the city we will try and work in to our schedule.  We still have a tiny house/storage shed for sale we would love to sell this summer as well, for anyone interested.”

Other than a destroyed stop sign, the 4th of July holiday was rather trouble free

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Fourth of July holiday is officially over, and at least in Wellington it was relatively trouble free.

There was one exception. Skyler Crittenden, 18, of Wellington is facing charges of arson, a non-person felony, for allegedly blowing up a stop sign at 15th and Jefferson.

According to Wellington Police Chief Tracy Heath said sometime in the late Saturday evening to early Sunday morning timeframe, a sparkler type bomb was used to severely damage the stop sign on the north corner of the intersection on U.S. 160, causing about $200 damage.

According to the Wellington Police report, Crittenden was arrested at 3 p.m. Sunday and confined for arson charges. He was released after posting bond.

As far as the overall holiday is concern, neither the police or fire department reported anything out of the ordinary.
