Ryan Weide, oldest son of
Lee and Jennifer Weide, and grandson of Donald Martin of Burlingame, KS, graduated with honors from Crete High School, Crete, NE, on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Ryan was

Jennifer Weide added—
Ryan is headed to K-State (no surprise there!) in the fall to study Nuclear and Mechanical Engineering, after a trip to Europe this summer. Not sure yet, but he may be doing Marching Band At KSU. Hope to know more after our next trip down there in early June.
He is one of approx. 300 students going with the Nebraska Ambassadors of Music and will travel to London, Paris, Switzerland, Germany and more. They spend about 3 days in each place, seeing the sites and playing concerts once in each location. The 300 students break down into two concert bands, a choir and an orchestra. He is second chair Alto Sax in one of the concert bands. Leaves June 9th, home June 24th. He is a veteran already at traveling abroad, as he went with a small group from his high school last year. 5/16/2013

I got to attend and take photos as grandsons Kyle and Ryan competed in two tournaments for the 2013 Nebraska State High School Robot Championship and the Nebraska State Robot Championship in the same weekend. In my photos Kyle wears a white coat next to the kid in a red t-shirt. Ryan has on a white coat and shorts in the second photo. They did ok but did not win. Last year Ryan and Kyle helped win both the HS and State championship. Proud parents are Jennifer and Lee Weide. 2/12/2013

Beau Allen Coffman arrived at St. Francis Hospital in Topeka on Jan. 22, 2013. He came at 7 lbs 2 oz., 20". Beau’s parents are Emily and Justin, his older brother is Joel Yoho, his grandparents are Stuart and Anna Yoho, great grandparents are Max and Carol Yoho, and great great grandpa is Jack Martin. Beau was born with a cleft palate and had to go to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City for analysis and treatment planning, but is now home with his parents and feeding well from a bottle. He’ll have continuing treatment as he grows, but this problem has some wonderful solutions these days! We’re happy to welcome Beau to our family! 1/26/2013

I'm proud that the Topeka-Shawnee County Public Library has chosen my submission for their"Most Valued Possession" (MVP) exhibition. I nominated the WWII era Navy-issued battery-powered flashlight that Dad gave me. It is the only personal possession that survived the sinking of the U.S.S. Block Island CVE-21 destroyer carrier with Dad when he was sunk in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, near the Canary Islands on May 29, 1944. (CVE-21 was the only American carrier lost in the Atlantic, the victim of three German submarine torpedoes.) Dad had an amazing escape from the vessel that night. His story is told elsewhere on the web site. See "Cleve Martin Jr., U.S. Navy WWII story." To me, the flashlight is a symbol of the miracle of his survival, and I would not be here without it!!!
Our thanks to Brenda and Ed Martin and Ken and Linda Wilson for attending the opening, with Dad, Max and me. We had a nice visit together! Also Leota Martin, Katherine Ragland and Phyllis Gish attended the opening. Sorry we missed seeing them!
The show runs January 18 to March 17, 2013. at the Sabitini Gallery at the library during their regular business hours. I hope family living in the area will consider stopping by the library during the show's run. 1/18/2013
