Arrest of chief’s son not connected to job, says Paine
March 20, 2002
Last week’s arrest of Baldwin Police Chief Steve Butell’s son on alleged burglary and theft charges is in no way a reflection on the chief’s job performance, according to City Administrator Larry Paine. Sean Butell, 22, was arrested March 11 by Douglas County Sheriff’s officers on one count of burglary, one count of felony theft and two counts of misdemeanor theft. The charges result from the alleged burglary or theft from three Baldwin businesses Heritage Tractor, Baldwin Grain Co. and Icon Builders.
Ikenberry is a man on a mission
March 20, 2002
Even though Tony Ikenberry had already been to Africa less than two years ago, he felt he couldn’t pass up another opportunity to return. But his second visit, as was his first, wasn’t a vacation getaway. Instead, Ikenberry made the trip with the Kansas East Conference Volunteers in Mission team to Mava, Kenya, to help at the local United Methodist hospital. “It was kind of a faith deal,” he said. “I was looking to go there as the next step of my faith.” Ikenberry, who attends the Ives Chapel United Methodist Church, left for Kenya in mid-February with 10 other area Methodist Church members. The group traveled to Mava, an area known for its tea and coffee farmers, and spent about 15 days trying to finish the mission work that was started during Ikenberry’s first trip to Africa.

The notice of complaint is a precursor to a lawsuit. Cpl. Bill Dempsey and officers Charles Woolsencroft and Eric Garcia are claiming their first and 14th amendment rights were violated as a result of disciplinary and other actions taken by Mayor Ken Hayes, City Administrator Larry Paine and the City Council.
