third weekends, 1st. Lt. Jean W inkler and 1st Lt. Debra Schlesener came toencampment just to cook for the cadets. The food arrangements worked outgreat and because of the success of the project, future Kansas W ing encamp-ments w ill probably also try to use senior member cooks to serve meals at alower cost than the caterer.Lt.

Members of KS-066, Flint Hills Composite Squadron
joined about20 Geary County Reserve deputies on Sunday evening, October 10, tosearch for a missing Junction City woman. Judith Maurer, 56, wanderedaway from a trailer park where she lives with her daughter. Mrs. Maurerwas found cold and wet, but safe, early the next morning.The search was hampered by rain, falling temperatures and verylow visibility. Geary County Director of Emergency Management, GarryBerges, explained that the search had been ended about 1 a.m. Mondaymorning because conditions had deteriorated to the point that “she couldhave been three feet in front of someone, and they wouldn’t have seenher.” Berges was also of the opinion that Mrs. Maurer did not wish to befound.Weather conditions also prevented any air search. The groundsearch was resumed Monday morning and the missing woman was foundaround 9 a.m. in the same general area searched the previous night.“I am just thankful she’s alive and well,” commented Geary CountySheriff, Jim Jensen
“We’ll make sure she gets the counselling sheneeds.”
