Program offers students ‘Slice of Agriculture’ display For the second year, about 800 Douglas County fourth-graders will learn about farming, soil and water conservation and nutrition through a two-day program, “Slice of Agriculture.” The event is organized and sponsored by agriculture, education and food service groups, including K-State Research and Extension of Douglas County and the Lawrence school district. The educational program will teach students about how agriculture affects everyone through eight “Slices of Agriculture.” Each slice will demonstrate a different element of agriculture and how it relates to pizza, one of America’s favorite foods. Classes will attend sessions between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds, 21st and Harper streets. A VIP session for local government, education and business leaders also was added this year and will start at 7 p.m. Thursday. ______________________________ Philanthropy: Annual Souper Bowl funds scholarships, ceramics People perused about 300 handmade bowls in different sizes and shades of blue, yellow, cream, green and brown Saturday at the Lawrence Arts Center, 200 W. Ninth St. “It’s something we look forward to every year,” said Kenn Peters, Lawrence. Peters, Cyndy Lester and their son Seth Peters, 3, selected three unique bowls to add to their collection of more than a dozen. For a $10 ticket, participants could purchase a ceramic bowl, a container of soup and a serving of bread. The food was donated by Hy-Vee and Great Harvest Bread Co. More than 200 people purchased bowls designed by several Lawrence-area artists, including students at Free State High School and members of the Lawrence Potter’s Guild. Kansas University students Joel Kivett, above left, and Jenny Kenne were among the visitors who looked at the bowls. Proceeds from the event will go to the arts center’s ceramics department and for scholarships. A portion of the proceeds also will be donated to the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen, which helps feed the city’s hungry and homeless. ______________________________ Development: Ottawa school board to hear offer for old middle school The Ottawa school board Monday will hear about a new offer for the old middle school, which is slated for demolition. Laura Ansley, a broker for Prestige Real Estate, Ottawa, is handling the deal for an out-of-state developer. She said she will attend the meeting to discuss the offer. Last year, Pioneer Group Inc., Topeka, backed out of plans to buy the property at Fifth and Main streets because of high operating and renovation costs. The building has been vacant more than five years. The board’s attorney, Bob Bezek, will review laws and procedures related to demolition of the building, which is listed on both the state and national registers of historic places.
