University: KU official named to Children’s Cabinet Reggie Robinson, counselor to Kansas University Chancellor Robert Hemenway, has been named to the Kansas Children’s Cabinet by Gov. Bill Graves. The cabinet was created in 1999 to identify, evaluate, recommend funding for and promote programs that benefit Kansas children. It monitors spending from the Children’s Initiative Fund, which includes 95 percent of the state’s portion of its tobacco settlement. Robinson’s appointment with the cabinet expires June 30, 2002. ____________ Community: Program features children’s story time Community book lovers will open the eyes of more than 100 of the city’s children to the possibilities of reading. The fourth annual Readers as Leaders program will be from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 15 at East Heights School, 1430 Haskell Ave. Children from birth through five years of age are the target audience for the reading project. This pep rally for reading will be done in a story-time fashion with community members reading to children and their parents. There will be drawings for books throughout the evening, and two $100 savings bonds from Central National Bank will be given away. ____________ Science: Researchers obtain grant for disabilities technology Kansas University researchers have secured a $1.5 million grant to determine how technology can help people with mental retardation and other mental disabilities to live more independently. Michael Wehmeyer, associate director of the Beach Center on Disability, and Sean Smith, assistant professor of special education, will lead the project, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Devices for time management and adding voice-activated and visual controls to computer programs for e-mail and money management could be part of the project. The ARC of the United States, American Association on Mental Retardation, AbleLink Technologies, the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities, Self-Advocate Coalition of Kansas and the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation are partners in the research.
