Driving a beer truck, Santa delivers cans of water to area first responders and firefighters

Osage County area firefighters and emergency personnel gathered to accept a gift of drinking water from Anheuser Busch and Flint Hills Beverage. Helping to unload and distribute the water to local fire departments were, from left, Gary Kitt, OCFD No. 3 Melvern, Charlie Porting and Sean Rewerts, Osage County EMS, Greg McCurdy, Osage County Emergency Management, Casey Mussatto and Trevor Keeffe, Flint Hills Beverage, Brent Rose, OCFD No. 7 Quenemo, Bryce Romine, OCFD No. 5 Lyndon, Dan Romine, OCFD No. 2 Osage City, and Randall Wilson, OCFD No. 7 Quenemo.

OSAGE CITY, Kan. – With the help of the local Anheuser Busch distributor, Santa Claus dropped off an early Christmas present for area firefighters and emergency personnel. Although Flint Hills Beverage sales manager Trevor Keeffe delivered the gift in a Bud Light truck, it wasn’t a load of beer. Instead Keeffe unloaded a pallet of canned drinking water at the Osage City fire station Dec. 12, 2023, as part of Anheuser Busch’s emergency drinking water program.

The company’s water program began as a way to provide drinking water to people affected by natural disasters. In 2019, the program was expanded as the Emergency Drinking Water for Wildland Firefighters program. Since the program began, the company has delivered more than 6.5 million cans of water to more than 1,400 fire departments across the United States. Every year, Anheuser-Busch periodically pauses beer production to can emergency drinking water to be ready to help during emergencies or natural disasters.

The wild firefighters program began as a way to help fire personnel maintain proper hydration while fighting fires, which is critical for them to perform at their best and avoid health consequences from extreme heat, physical exertion, and loss of fluids.

“Firefighters need to stay hydrated while fighting fires, and especially with the wild grass fires our local firefighters have to deal with,” said Casy Mussatto, Flint Hills Beverage co-owner. “The Anheuser Busch drinking water program is one way we can help our fire departments obtain water they need to keep hydrated.”

Keeffe said Flint Hills Beverage wants other local fire departments to know about the program, especially in the area the distributorship covers in northcentral Kansas.

“We are trying to get more community fire departments involved so they can save some money and have extra drinking water, too,” Keeffe said.

Christmas on Market Street: I’ll be home for the holidays!

Osage City is planning for everyone to be home for the holidays, as the town begins the season with the annual Christmas on Market Street, this Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023 in downtown Osage City. The Osage City Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the day’s activities, has announced the theme for this year’s Christmas opening as “I’ll be home for the holidays!”

The annual event includes a day of fun, goodwill and holiday cheer as Osage City merchants and businesses open their doors for holiday shopping, sales, and prizes. Two ping pong ball drops are scheduled. Those who catch balls with numbers win prizes redeemable at local businesses. The ever popular raffle drawing promises hundreds of dollars in prizes that include goods and services from local businesses. Everyone is invited to stop into local stores for holiday specials, prizes or grab bags, and product demonstrations.

With Santa Claus in town to add his special brand of joviality and cheeriness to the event, the highlight of the evening will be the old bearded one’s ride down Market Street in the lighted Christmas parade. Also featured as celebrity guests in the parade will be the KC Chiefs Wolf and the Topeka High Drum Corps.

The parade gets underway at 6 p.m. after the downtown lighting of Christmas decorations. Here is the schedule of the day’s events.

A couple of local business people decided to have some fun on Halloween, and ended up visiting senior centers, senior living apartments, the sheriff’s office, chambers of commerce, and hospitals across Osage, Lyon, and Coffey counties.

Maria Petersen, marketing specialist with Home Town Health Care, and the company’s COO Jon Reed dressed in Star Wars costumes for the day – Peterson was a storm trooper and Reed was Darth Vader.

The two started their day with the Lyndon school crossing patrol near Casey’s in Lyndon, helping kids cross Topeka Avenue on their way to school. The kids seemed to like Darth Vader helping stop traffic as they crossed. Later in the day while visiting a hospital, the two were told it was just as exciting as a driver being stopped by Darth Vader while on their way to work. They were told one driver took a photo because he said his wife would never believe him when he told her Darth Vader was helping at the school zone.

During a stop at Osage County Senior Center, the storm trooper called bingo while Darth Vader watched and visited with seniors. The two also made an appearance at Burlington, at the city’s trunk-or-treat held on Neosho Street.

The Star Wars duo spread Halloween fun across the area, wishing everyone a happy and safe Halloween.

Frontier Extension offers presentation on stretching cattle forage resources for winter

By Carol Engle, Frontier Extension District Communications

OTTAWA, Kan. – Frontier Extension District will host a public presentation on “Ways to Stretch Your Forage Resources” for livestock producers in eastern Kansas. The educational meeting will be 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, 2023, at Neosho County Community College Ottawa Campus, 900 E. Logan St., Ottawa, Kan.

Jaymelynn Farney, KSU Extension beef systems specialist, will be the presenter. Topics to be covered include limit feeding the cow herd; utilizing stalks and fall or spring cover crops as forage; substituting grain for hay in a cow’s diet; feeding hay in rings vs. unrolling; and how adding Rumensin to a cow’s diet affects performance.

“Dry weather the last couple of years has left many livestock producers with limited pasture, hay and water resources,” said Frontier Extension agent Rod Schaub, who specializes in livestock production. “Grass and hay production varied widely this year. Some producers had average hay crops, while others baled only half a crop. Water is another issue; many ponds tested positive for blue-green algae this summer, and now most ponds have low water levels.”

The weather pattern has left producers wondering how they are going to feed their cow herd this fall and winter, he said.

“This meeting will give producers ideas to consider using to help reduce their wintering costs,” Schaub said.

Registration is not required, but Schaub encourages producers to make plans to attend. For more information, contact Schaub at 785-828-4438 or rschaub@ksu.edu.

“Education and healthcare have long been a focus for the Jones Foundation,” said Sharon L. Tidwell, executive director of the Walter S. and Evan C. Jones Foundation. “The development of the Jones Premier Nursing and Education Scholarship with ESU provides a unique opportunity for some of the brightest students in the three counties we serve.”

The Jones Premier Nursing and Education Scholarship will provide three full-ride education scholarships and three full-ride nursing scholarships to ESU – one of each from Lyon, Coffey and Osage counties. To apply, students must have a 3.7 or more weighted GPA OR a 28 or more ACT score, submit two essays, and live in Osage, Coffey or Lyon counties.

Osage City beverage distributor celebrates 90th anniversary of business

Flint Hills Beverage hosted the quarterly Osage City Chamber After Hours in conjunction with the company’s 90th anniversary celebration Sept. 21, 2023. FHB co-owner Casey Mussatto shared some of the history of the company, while Tyler Parsons gave a tour of the warehouse. Attendees enjoyed delicious refreshments and beverages.

Here is the history of Mussatto Bros. as provided by Casey Mussatto:

Mussatto Bros. was founded in 1933 by Victor and Joe Mussatto in Osage City. The company represented several Kansas City area breweries, the most well known of which was Muehlebach Brewing Company.

Cheryl and Casey Mussatto.

In 1942, representatives of Anheuser-Busch called on the Mussattos at their downtown Osage City office and warehouse and told them that their current wholesaler in the area, 7UP bottling of Emporia, was not doing a very good job. They told Victor and Joe that they had heard very good things about their service and reputation and offered them the distribution rights to Budweiser, which was a good brand but only 5 percent of the market at the time. The brothers asked about what they had to spend to get it and other details. When the representatives told them there was no additional investment, they decided to agree to take on Anheuser-Busch and the Budweiser brand.

Victor passed away in 1944 and Joe continued to run the business. Victor’s son, Raymond, and his wife Juanita then bought out Joe in 1950. They owned and operated it through 1985. During that time, they also added Hamm’s Brewing and several other regional breweries. They grew the brands of their suppliers, and Anheuser-Busch added several other brands like Michelob, Busch, Natural Light and Bud Light.

Raymond and Juanita’s son Casey and his wife Cheryl Mussatto took over ownership in 1985. In the 1980s and 90s the advertising and promotional expertise of Anheuser-Busch improved significantly as well as the area’s population, and the market share of Mussatto Bros. Inc. grew from approximately 48 percent to nearly 60 percent.
