Timmy W. Kellenberger was born in Horton on July 22, 1959, and lived on the family farm just north of Fairview for five years before moving into Sabetha to attend school.

He graduated from Sabetha High School in May 1977 and attended Kansas State University for three years before earning a Bachelor of Science degree in human resource management/agricultural economics from Grace University in Omaha.

He has been married to Paula for 30 years. Paula is a speech/language pathologist and recently retired from USD No. 336 in Holton after 32 years of service.

Travis, Jordan, Kyle and Jenna are their four children. They have two grandchildren, Crew and Kate, born to Travis and his wife Erica. Jordan and her husband Adam were recently married.

Tim will retire from the United States Postal Service on July 31, 2015, after more than 32 years of service.

He is also engaged in 1,000 acres of row crop farming and operates a 100 head cow/calf operation on the family farm where he and Paula reside. The family farm north of Fairview has been in existence since 1885 and has been their residence since 1997.

Tim and Paula purchased The Sabetha Herald in October 2004. Tim writes a weekly outdoor column for The Herald and manages the accounting and subscription departments, while Paula manages the payroll.

Patty Locher, Amber Deters and Krista Wasinger are the heartbeat and lifeblood of The Herald and have made The Sabetha Herald the paper it is today.

Tim is an avid outdoorsman who loves to hunt and fish, and his outdoor adventures have taken him from the Arctic Circle in northern Alaska to the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.
