Glencoe Karate Club students compete at Hutchinson tourney

Several students from the Glencoe Karate Club competed in a tournament hosted by the Hutchinson Shotokan Karate Club held on Saturday, March 7 at the Hutchinson Event Center. 
Hayley Schultz earned an “Outstanding Competitor” trophy after placing first in Kata and Kumite and fourth in Team Kata. Kayla DeYonge was first in Kumite, third in Kata and fourth in Team Kata. 

Clumsiness signaled much deeper problem

Last summer, Raylan Sonnenberg appeared to be the epitome of a happy, healthy toddler. He had hardly known a speck of illness and was already walking around his Plato home by the time he was 14 months old.
“He was very healthy,” said his mother, Lisa Sonnenberg. “But then, by the time he was about 16 months old, we began to notice that he was not walking as well. He was falling over more and using a wider stance.”

Uncertain of what the future holds

“It was pretty hard on us.”
Katie Ahrens recalled the pain both her and husband Levi felt upon learning that their son Levi – still forming inside Katie’s womb – had spina bifida.
Spina bifida is a congenital disorder where vertebrae overlying the spinal cord do not fully form and instead remain unfused and open.
“It affects each child differently,” Katie said.

A long road ahead

Dylann Paradeis recently turned 16 months old. It is an age in which many babies have stretched their legs to take their first steps. 
However, Dylann is not able to do so as she suffers from a condition known as arthrogryposis. 
The term derives its name from the Greek term for “curving of joints” and denotes congenital joint contractures.
