Deb Hadachek is a native of Republic County and has spent 43 years and counting as a writer and columnist for the Belleville Telescope, a weekly newspaper. (She started her career at a time when “cutting and pasting” to edit a story involved scissors and Scotch tape.)
She is a commissioned lay pastor and has served First Presbyterian Church in Beloit for 14 years. (Both newspaper and church require the same skills: reading, writing, visiting with people and drinking coffee).
She and her husband, Merle, a retired vocational agriculture teacher, live on a farm near Cuba, Kansas, and have two sons: Tim, an attorney in Kansas City, and Jeff, a grad student in ag economics at the University of California-Davis.
District 3 and 4 members invite all KAC members and guests to join this Zoom read-around meeting.
How does Open Mic work?
- 7:00-7:10pm – we check in, sign up to read, greet each other and celebrate victories
- 7:10-7:30pm – our Featured Reader presents
- 7:30-7:55 – Readers share in order of sign-up. Plan on 3 minutes. If there is plenty of time, attendees will get a 2nd opportunity to read.
