CBA Band Takes Band Mini Tour

Corn , OKLA — The small but mighty CBA band headed out on a mini tour on the weekend of March the 1st and 2nd to Wichita and Newton, Kansas. The band left on Saturday morning to go to the Winter Jam concert in Wichita. The Christian music at the concert was a great start to the weekend . The band spent the night at Koerner Heights church in Newton and awoke to a change in the weather. The band was scheduled for the early worship service,  however, heavy snow and very cold temperatures forced the church to combine its two services and Sunday school into a shortened service. The band played 5 songs for the service. The snow continued to come down throughout the morning and forced the band to stay an extra night in Newton. The next morning the temperature was -2 and the bus drivers were not able to get the bus started until later that afternoon. The band finally arrived home late Monday evening.

Corn Bible Junior Class presents The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood

Corn, OKLA — It sure is hard to be humble when you’re a swashbuckling, egocentric super-hero in a never-ending quest to aid the needy, and in the Corn Bible Academy’s Junior Class production of The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood, our gallant Robin Hood, Riley Kliewer, swaggers through a frantically funny, Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic. He encounters Maiden Marian, played by Regan Wherritt, a lovely damsel-in-distress and daughter of the king, who is oddly obsessed with skin conditions. Robin must save her from a gold-hoarding, bad-guy monarch wannabe, the Evil Prince John, also known as Michael Boese and his partner in crime, the ever-scheming Sheriff of Nottingham, known to us as Jordan Penner, who would can bowl a strike or hit a bull’s-eye time after time. Also at the castle are three hardworking girls whose job are literally fawning over the royalty; they are Morgan Leppke, Cassie Oliver, and the Lady in Waiting, Liliana Hurtado.
Our brave outlaw Robin Hood finds an ally in the good-natured “Town’s Guy” (Wesley Javorsky), who is armed with technical resources and manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not. Combine them with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men (Mitchell Graf, Joel Kliewer, and Brendon White) whose collective IQs equal six, and Robin’s sister, Jane of Locksley (Aevry Hayes) and Friar Tuck, our own Chandler Smith, who are the more esteemed of the band, and you’ve got an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forest that you won’t soon forget!
Join the CBA Junior Class as they present The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood on March 6 and March 7 matinees at 1 p.m. and March 7 at 7 p.m. with a dinner beforehand starting at 5:00 p.m. Mark my words—Sherwood Forest would never be the same again.  You won’t want to miss it.
