County commissioners consider logging regulations Spurred by the comments of concerned neighbors about a logging project near Lone Star, the Douglas County Commissioners have agreed to consider regulations on consumer logging. __________________________ Coverage: CSPAN to film Hughes event Next month’s Langston Hughes symposium at Kansas University will receive national television coverage. CSPAN plans to film events on Feb. 7 and 8 including a performance by actor Danny Glover as part of its “American Writers: A Journey through History” series. The show scheduled for broadcast March 31 is “Zora Neal Hurston, Langston Hughes and the Harlem Renaissance Writers.” The early registration deadline for the symposium, which is Feb. 7-10, is Friday. Registration is $75 until Friday, and $100 after Friday. Heather Hoy, program manager with KU Continuing Education, said 320 people had registered as of Monday. The Lawrence City Commission paid for 200 Lawrence residents to attend the symposium free. Hoy said those scholarships have been claimed, but that the Continuing Education office is keeping a waiting list in case any registrants should cancel. For more information, contact the Continuing Education office at 864-5823, or go to the office at 1515 St. Andrews Drive. __________________________ State government: Legislative field trip to be broadcast on Web site The Kansas Legislature’s field trip Thursday to Manhattan will be broadcast on the Internet. The meeting, which runs from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., can be viewed at www.dce.ksu.edu/kslegis. The Legislature is scheduled to hear proposals to use bonds to construct research facilities at Kansas University (life sciences), Kansas State University (food safety) and Wichita State University (aviation research). In addition to the proposals, the day will include speeches from legislative leaders and Clay Blair, chairman of the Kansas Board of Regents. __________________________ Elections: Tanner likely will run for fifth term in House Rep. Ralph Tanner, a Baldwin Republican serving his fourth term in the Kansas House, will likely run for re-election. “Right now I’m leaning in the direction of running again,” said Tanner, who chairs the House Education Committee. He said Monday in an interview that the outcome of budget deliberations by the 2002 Legislature would be a major factor in his decision. Clear opportunities to shape education policy also will be key, he said. “If I think there’s a good chance I might be able to accomplish a few things that need to be done, I might stick around.” Tanner, 75, was president of Baker University for eight years before winning election to the House.
