HEIL: Despite retirement, summer will be busy CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 Through it all, the most rewarding experience, Heil said, is the student success stories. "You hear about students going off and doing great things," he said. "Just last week I got to see a student who just got back from an internship in China. She just had the whole world opened up for her. I went up and gave her a hug because I hadn't seen her in a year, and I told her that this is what makes it all worth it as a teacher." As Heil finishes cleaning out his office, the new chairwoman of the department is moving her stuff in. The department will be split up for the first time in more than a decade this fall semester, with Shala Mills serving as chairwoman of the political sci- ence department and Brian Kinnaird taking over justice studies. "It was such a good time for my retirement to take place because we were looking for this split," Heil said. "Both departments are in excellent hands, and that feels good, going away from here with that comfort." HeiFs first order of business after Saturday: heavy golfing. "I'm going to be out on the course as soon as I can," he said. He's also planning on being a walking scorer in early July's U.S. Senior Open in Hutchinson, going to a massive family reunion in Chicago, keeping his grandchildren over for a few weeks and getting more involved with politics. He'll soon become president of the Optimist's Club, "It's going to be a busy summer," he said. "Hopefully we make it through everything in one piece." Heil also hopes to catch up on some reading, the kind of reading a chairman doesn't always have the time for. During a cleaning day, Heil found one piece of text that might be on the agenda. When Heil was boxing up the books in his office, he found a tattered copy of Plato's "Republic." This was the book he did his high school senior thesis on, the book that sparked his passion for politics. "It's funny," he said, "the things that end up having an effect on your life." This book he will keep.

Post office representatives from Salina and the Hill City office, and a representative from Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' office, explained the convenience of curbside mail. However, as Taylor put it, that's not the point. "The idea is they kill your town. It's a real neat community because everybody looks after everybody," she said. "But it doesn't matter to them. It doesn't bother them to close little post offices. They have no ties here." Though Penokee will be allowed to keep its zip code, the mail will come through Hill City. The closure is not so simple as locking the door and walking away that Friday morning. Residents are having to make preparations ahead of time — preparations that cost money. The 25 families that are affected by the change are required to install mail boxes in front of their houses at their own expense before June 24. That day will be the first day of home delivery. People are having trouble finding boxes, and the area stores are sold out. Taylor and Kenny Shepherd, a resident since 1968, have been helping people locate and install them. Taylor was the first one to get a mail box up — an oversized catfish — Friday. The county still needs to put up the street signs previously ordered for the 911 right-of-way system. Graham County engineer Gary Cameron said the signs should be up by the time the mail system switches over. The cost of installing a box, Shepherd said, is about $100 for materials and labor. That's 44 years worth of small post office box rent. "If a package comes and no one is home and we have to sign for it, we have to go all the way to Hill City," she said. Mailing packages will have to be done 10 minutes up the road at Hill City, Taylor said, but she has been told they can buy stamps or money orders from the mail carrier. Taylor will have to send at least 100 change of address notifications. This isn't the first time that Penokee had to deal with the loss of its post office. "They tried to close us in 1995 and didn't get the job done," Taylor said. Reporter Stacie R. Sandall can be reached at (785) 628-1081, ext. 136, or by e-mail at ssandall@ dally news. net. NUSS: Several options exist CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 "I don't see how anything but information from those three individuals is relevant," said hearing examiner Edward G. Collister, a Lawrence attorney who represents the commission. A House investigative panel has been looking into whether Morris obtained information from the lunchtime chat with Nuss that influenced the passage of a three- year, $541 million school finance package to meet the court's mandate for, ^dditioria^sctyjol funding.,, Several senators have'told 'the committee'about wha't tiieyisay Morris'told them about his talks with a court employee, although Morris and Brungardt have thus far declined to testify. But Badgerow said that only the discussions of the parties at the lunch proved important for determining whether judicial rules were broken. An investigative panel filed a formal complaint last month against Nuss for alleged violations that resulted conversation. In a response filed earlier this month, Nuss, who has no prior disciplinary record as a lawyer or judge, acknowledged the discussion was a "lapse in judgment" but claims it ultimately proved harmless. Badgerow also said that he planned to call witnesses who could testify to the "sterling character of Justice Nuss." The attorney also said he ultimate goal was to get the complaint against Nuss "dismissed," which could happen if the Commission on Judicial Qualifications find insufficient evidence to prove the charges. r.t . -i that sufficient evidence to.. trove 'that Nuss committed a y io- . .• . ' lation, it could decide to admonish the justice. Or the commissipn could recommend that the Kansas Supreme Court discipline the justice through public censure or suspend him from his duties. A sitting Supreme Court justice only can be removed from office by the Legislature through the impeachment process. Judicial branch spokesman Ron Keefover said the commission's final ruling could be issued up to several months after the August hearing, Midday markets LOCAL INTEREST Courtesy Dimll G. satbsl, Edwitd Jones Pric* Change AlltellCorp 61.49 -.52 Anheuser Busch 45.55 +.13 AT&T 27.BO + .07 Atmos Energ Common 26.70 + .05 BankAmerlca Corp 47.60 -.31 Baxter 38.34 -.27 BP 68.42 -.65 Caremark Rx 47.42 -.38 Commerce Banes 50.24 -.11 ConAgra 22.25 +.16 Deere & Co 80.60 + .28 Out & Phelp 10.26 -.08 Duke Energy 29.14 -.06 El Paso Corp 14.47 -.14 Halliburton 73.00 -1.34 Kinder Morgan 99.79 -.12 KellwoodCo 28.56 -.48 LIVESTOCK CourtMy DACO Inc.
