Bert Nash Center has annual awards ceremony The Bert Nash Community Health Center had its annual meeting Monday night at its Lawrence office, 200 Maine. Keynote speaker Charles M. Kuszmaul, WRAP Coordinator at the Bert Nash center, discussed the importance of WRAP in local schools. ____________________________________ Television: Topeka ABC-TV affiliate ends local news broadcasts Topeka Squeezed by a slumping economy, low ratings and other financial factors, KTKA-TV has dropped its local news programming and laid off 26 employees. The ABC affiliate, which went on the air in 1983 and has had local newscasts for 15 years, carried its final local news broadcast at 6 p.m. Friday. General Manager Bob Fulmer said Monday the station will fill the 6 p.m. slot with a public affairs program starting in June. Network-news programming replaces the local 6 a.m. news, and syndicated programs fill the 5 p.m., 10 p.m. and for now 6 p.m. time slots. The station still plans to broadcast ABC’s “World News Tonight” and “Nightline.” “It’s like the planets lined up at the same time,” Fulmer said. “I don’t like the decision, but I know why I have to make it.” In New York, ABC issued a statement saying: “We regret their decision. News creates a solid bond with viewers and complements the network’s offerings.” KTKA’s news broadcasts consistently ranked third in local ratings, seen by 1 percent to 2 percent of viewers, Fulmer said. Two other Topeka stations carry local news CBS affiliate WIBW and NBC affiliate KSNT. KTKA-TV is Sunflower Broadband Channel 12. ____________________________________ Congress: Legislation would create parkland at Sunflower site U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, D-Kan., introduced legislation Monday that would create 2,800 acres of parkland at the former site of the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant in Johnson County. The bill is the House companion to an identical bill introduced by U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan. If passed, almost one-third of the 9,065-acre ammunition plant site would be added to the 850-acre Kill Creek Park in Olathe, which opened in 2001. That land from the plant contains both tallgrass prairie and forest. “I can think of no more fitting way to celebrate Earth Day than by setting aside thousands of acres of parks for our children and grandchildren,” Moore said. “And by transferring this land from the federal government to local control, we’ll continue to add to our local system of parks and recreation areas.” ____________________________________ Taxes: County to mail notices for personal property Valuation notices for boats, trailers and other taxable personal property will be mailed to owners next week by the Douglas County Appraiser’s Office. Forms will be placed in the mail April 30. Each valuation form will include a description of the property and a phone number to call by 5 p.m. May 15 to schedule an appeal. In January, county officials mailed 8,800 assessment forms to owners of boats, jet skis, trailers, mobile homes, airplanes, large trucks, mopeds and business equipment. Tax bills will be mailed to owners in November. ____________________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump Patrol seeks best deal The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.28 at Site Service Station at 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue.
