New mother wins home for family 20-year-old stood it out for 77 hours to win free mobile home By DAN ENGLAND The Salina Journal Stephanie Morton once thought the front of the mobile home was her baby's bedsheets. There was another time when she thought she was fixing a bowl of spaghetti. And with her hand plastered onto the home in a marathon effort to win it in a contest, there was the time that she yelled at her boyfriend to keep his hand stuck on the home. "He said to me, 'Babe, you're the one who is in the contest,' " said the 20-year-old Salinan. Morton wasn't on LSD. She was on absolutely nothing. Absolutely no sleep. Morton won the mobile home Tuesday afternoon in a contest sponsored by Wholesale Homes, 1731 N. Ninth. The $7,500 home, a 1979 single-wide model, went to the last person standing with a the Education Bethany enrollment planned in summer LINDSBORG — Enrollment days for new freshmen and transfer students have been scheduled at Bethany College.

But you think about the things you need, and we really needed a place of our own to stay." Stephanie Morton winner of free home hand touching the home. The competition got under way at 9 a.m. Saturday with 22 contestants and ended after 77 hours and 23 minutes. "It is very hard to stay up that long," she said. "Your mind is just gone. I couldn't have done it without my boyfriend, Rick, and other friends who brought me stuff." Last year the contest was over after 54 hours, said Dennis Boyd, housing consultant for Wholesale Homes. The company also has dealerships in Hays and Wichita, and Morton broke the contest record, which was set in Wichita last year, by 11 hours. About half of the contestants were gone after 36 hours, Boyd said. "Then it was just hang tough," he said. "I am amazed it lasted as long as it did. These kids definitely had a lot of heart." The contestants were allowed just one 15-minute break every three hours, Boyd said, but were checked during that time to make sure they were OK. Salinan Tony Riffel was the last contestant to go down. He waved at Boyd and sat down at 2:23 p.m. "Surprisingly enough, they can speak and appear to be lucid," Boyd said. "But their eyes and body language tells you something different." Morton kept thinking of her boyfriend. Rick Laney, and their infant son, six-month-old Derek, as she struggled through the contest. "The first night was really rough," she said. "I had a lot .of doubt, and when you're up thai, long, it's so emotionally draining," I kept thinking I should just get out of here. But you think about the tilings you need, and we really needed a place of our own to stay." Although they have a baby, Morton and her boyfriend both have continued to live with their mothers because they can't afford a place of their own. Her ankles and legs were swollen^ but Morton was in good shape after a shower. Now she looked forward to a good night's sleep. "I get to go to bed tonight," she said. "And I get to brag about being a 20-year-old who owns her own house."
