Former governor to speak at benefit fish fry Former Kansas Gov. Mike Hayden will be the guest speaker later this month at a benefit for river recreation sponsored by the Friends of the Kaw. The event will be at 6 p.m. May 18 at the American Legion Hall, Perry. Hayden, now president of American Sport Fishing Assn., will talk about recreational values of rivers and their natural environs. The fish fry will promote the opening of a new fishing, canoeing and boating access near Perry. Land for river access may be donated by private owners, if permission is received from Perry to build the boat launch, according to the Friends of the Kaw. Besides the fish fry, the evening will include a Kaw fly fishing demonstration, information about fish species on the Kaw, and display booths. In the file photo above, the Friends of the Kaw are seen taking the annual float trip from Perry to Lawrence. Cost of the fish fry is $7 at the door. For more information or reservations, call (785) 842-5941 or email scott@kansasriver.com. __________________________ Ceremony: Winchester public library construction under way The city of Winchester will break ground on its new public library with a ceremony Wednesday. The ceremony will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the building site at Fourth and Grasshopper Streets. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to Jefferson County North High School. An informal reception will follow the event. The building is being funded by a block grant of $300,000 from the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing, a matching gift from former resident William Lindsay of Gig Harbor, Wash., and $50,000 from local government and library sources. KDCH representatives, Lindsay, Emporia architect David Emig and local dignitaries will take part in the event. __________________________ Backlog: Vaccine shortage prompts conservation A tetanus vaccine shortage has prompted Kansas Department of Health and Environment officials to urge physicians, school nurses and health agencies to conserve the vaccine. Aventis, the primary U.S. manufacturer of tetanus vaccine, currently reports a six- to 12-month nationwide backlog of orders. The national shortage developed when another company, Wyeth-Lederle, stopped production. KDHE officials said infants and people with acute wounds should have first priority for receiving the vaccine. In lieu of the shortage, state requirements for adolescents to receive a 10-year tetanus booster before entering school have been waived for the 2001-2002 school year. __________________________ Downtown alley closed City crews and a private contractor will close the alley in the 900 block between Massachusetts and New Hampshire streets today through Tuesday. Workers will be relocating and installing new electrical conduits around the city’s new parking garage at 933 N.H. The electrical system supplies power to lighting and traffic signals in the area. No parking will be allowed on the north side of 10th Street between Massachusetts and New Hampshire streets. Vehicles parked in barricaded areas will be towed at the owner’s expense. For more information, contact Bill Boyd, city Public Works building maintenance division, at 832-3331 or 832-3123. __________________________ Electric maintenance to cause Baldwin outage About two-thirds of Baldwin’s electric utility users will lose power while they’re sleeping tonight. Baldwin City Administrator Larry Paine said Wednesday that the power plant will be shut down for about 15 minutes, starting at midnight, affecting about 700 households. During the electrical service interruption, he said city employees will pull five sets of breakers and replace them with new ones. He said the annual preventive maintenance would help keep the power quality up. Without the proper care, he said, the breakers could short out. The power outage will affect most of the residents who live between First and 10th streets and from Ames to Orange streets.
