Humane Society • CONTINUED FROM PAGE Al "I don't want them to come back to Hays and get in trouble," he said. "What I'd really like to see — I wouldn't want to see another party anywhere else in town that night. They should just stay and party with us." A random panel of judges pulled from the audience will help continue an age-old Okto- berfest tradition. The selection of an annual prince and princess is not steeped in beauty but rather the foot-tapping abilities of young polka dancers. At 1 p.m. Saturday judges will select the best polka dancers in the crowd. When those new faces are chosen, the previous Oktoberfest prince and princess are officially crowned and awarded their prizes, courtesy of local business sponsors. As part of that long-range goal to share the German heritage with young residents, experi- enced polka dancers will offer lessons to novice dancers beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday. The music continues throughout the day, followed by Bullma- nia at 8 p.m. Advanced tickets are $10 and are on sales at Vanderbilt's, Bar-B Tack, Vine Street Dillon's, Cerv's and Orscheln's. Tickets at the gate are $12. Children 5 and under are admitted free. Brad Hardesty of Larned will put on a show that includes bull riding, mutton busting, a calf scramble and an appearance by Miss Rodeo Kansas and other area rodeo queens. Sunday's events begin after a Polka Mass, featuring the music of the Country Dutchmen and the Catherine Choir, a group of women whom Dorzweiler calls the "Catherine Tabernacle Choir." The Mass is more than a religious service for Catholic churchgoers, he said. Dorzweiler said he hopes members of all faiths will join them for Mass, the official kickoff to the event's second day. In planning this year's event, Dorzweiler said two goals were at the top of his list. First, Oktober- fest had to be a celebration of the German heritage that involved area youth. Second, it needed to be a family-oriented event. In response to that second goal, a Kansas carnival company will offer children's games throughout the event. Although there is no admission cost to Ok- toberfest, there is a fee for activities in the children's area. And in an effort to keep the lines moving at the food and drink vendors, Dorzweiler said those attending the weekend event can purchase booklets of tickets that can be redeemed at any food or beverage booth. Booklets of 10 50-cent tickets or 10 $1 tickets will be available for sale from three ticket booths lo- cated throughout the fairgrounds. Unused tickets can be returned for their face value any time before the close of Sunday's events. Selling German food has become a prime fund-raising idea for many area not-for-profit organizations, and Dorzweiler said all money collected by the association throughout the weekend will be donated to the Ellis County Historical Society. A percentage of all proceeds collected by food and beverage vendors reverts back to the asso* elation, as do rental fees from craft booths. Those funds in turn will be donated to the historical society. As a special benefit to the historical society, raffle tickets for a buffalo statue made by local sculptor Pete Felten will be sold throughout the weekend. All proceeds from that drawing — at 3:45 p.m. Sunday — will benefit the historical society as well. The following animals are at the Humane Society of the High Plains animal shelter, 2050 E. Old U.S. Highway 40, (785) 625-5252: A brown boxer-mix puppy found Sept. 8 in the 400 block of Canterbury. A black .Labrador mix found Sept. 18 in the 1100 block of Drum.

RUSSELL: Ignoring pleas of investors is not an option DOCTOR: Incident investigation continues • CONTINUED FROM PAGE A3 "Dr. Hildyard sent the patient to Hays Medical Center by private vehicle and failed to offer ambulance services," Schwanke said. His affidavit also states that at the Sept. 3 meeting, Hildyard "was told that he had until 5 p.m. on Sept. 5 to respond to a proposal that would permit him to remain an active medical staff member. He was also told that if he refused to comply with the conditions of that proposal, his clinical privileges and medical staff appointment would be summarily suspended." Schwanke said it was the board's "reasoned conclusion that because Dr. Hildyard refused to obtain the services recommended, he would continue to disrupt employees in the performance of their duties by engaging in offensive, inappropriate, derogatory, unacceptable, and disruptive language, which poses a danger to patient care at CMC." Schwanke said that the doctor breached the confidentiality of risk management and peer review processes required by state law when he made certain information available to his employees and partners, and they in turn held a rally at the hospital Sept. 5 requesting support for the doctor against the board's actions. In May, both sides agreed to a full investigation as outlined in the hospital's medical staff bylaws. Schwanke said in his affidavit that the doctor's actions during the pending investigation and the board's attempt to resolve the matter have "resulted in the intimidation of employees and mistrust of the required process." He added that Hildyard's conduct has disrupted the hospital's operations and affected patient care. "Dr. Hildyard should not be allowed to continue his attempts to thwart the prescribed process. The board should be permitted to carry out its responsibilities according to state and federal law and according to CMC bylaws and the medical staff bylaws," Schwanke said. Boyles, in his affidavit, stated the doctor violated confidentiality and risk management issues by specifically identifying the CMC employee who filed the complaint against him in April. "The employee's name apparently came from documents presented to the court by Dr. Hildyard as exhibits to his request for a temporary restraining order," Boyles said. The name of the employee not only was disclosed through court documents, it was published in a Colby newspaper story Sept. 9, Boyles said. Due to Hildyard's alleged breach of policy, Boyles said in the affidavit, other employees, including department directors, are telling Colson and him that they are reluctant to provide written documentation about Hildyard when they believed it would be warranted. These incidents have aggravated an already difficult working environment, he said, which "is damaging CMC's ability to provide quality patient care to which CMC employees are committed." • CONTINUED FROM PAGE Al Phillips said if millings would be feasible, the lower cost estimate certainly would be more workable when considering the city's budget. He noted that ignoring the pleas of the investors is not an option. "We can't hardly not do it. It's going to put a big black mark on the city," Phillips said. But Councilman Jeff Erbert sided with Daugherty and noted that "we're going to have a big black mark" if the city makes amends with Americlnn investors but hedges support to other businesses in the future. just minutes after completing another presentation, combined with an additional request for the city's financial support to fund renovations at the Oil Patch Museum. Councilwoman Nancy Holland first applauded the efforts of volunteers at the local oil museum who hope to resurrect the stop as an 1-70 attraction, but she also noted that the city's commitment to a project that brings jobs and revenue to the community is likewise important. Ultimately, she suggested the city council schedule a special meeting next week to consider the options of both projects. That meeting is scheduled at , 4:3,0,p.n}. nftxtTuesday,,..;.;,, r .,,,Y Court Report Kenda K. Koerner, 38,3006 Indian Trail, entered into a one-year DUI diversion agreement Aug. 12.

Scripture I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. — Isaiah 42:16 Midday markets LOCAL INTEREST TAXES: City staff, volunteers to help promote projects • CONTINUED FROM PAGE Al Gustafson said if the tax passes, the design process would start soon after the election. After six to eight months of collecting the tax, construction would begin. In addition to the streets storm water projects, LEG remodeling and the new fire station, the sales tax revenue would be used to build a park complex with ball fields and hiking trails. In addition, $5 million would be allocated to boosting economic development. Gustafson said that includes helping existing businesses develop and expand and assisting new businesses in 'These are people who feel strongly about it and will go out and explain to citizens the projects and discuss it with them.' — Randy Gustafson, Hays city manager. starting up. Gustafson said people with knowledge about the streets, parks, economic development and public safety will help make citizens aware of the projects the city would fund. Ultimately, it comes down to whether citizens are willing to continue a half-cent sales tax to pay for them, he said. A half-cent tax for the Hays Public Library expansion expires at the end of March. If Hays voters approve this new sales tax, it would begin April 1. City staff and people serving on committees formed over the years will work the next seven weeks to promote the individual projects. "These are people who feel strongly about it and will go out and explain to citizens the projects and discuss it with them," Gustafson said. "The effort will largely be those in these groups who want to see things accomplished. They will be speaking to groups, addressing the media and work- ing on the pragmatic side of things." One group that could play a role is the Community Development Finance Advisory Committee. The committee worked for more than a year to explore the city's needs. It recommended the six-project package that citizens will vote on in November. Lloyd Riedel, vice chairman of the committee, said the committee would likely help raise awareness of their work if the city wanted it to do so. "If the city commission asked for our assistance, I'd would be more then willing to help with it," Riedel said. "I think the city staff like parks and police will sell it a lot themselves." SCHOOLS: Summer school saw 94 students enrolled • CONTINUED FROM PAGE A3 Anita Schlegel, Learning Center coordinator, said 94 students enrolled in summer school, including students from two non- sponsoring schools. Sponsoring schools are Hays, Plainville, La Crosse, Ellis and Victoria. Thirty-three new students have enrolled at the center in the last month, she said. In addition to the scheduled re- iorts, Felten health and physical education teacher Donna Fleischacker updated the board on the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness, of which she is a member. A total of 17,000 students took part in the state's fitness day in May. Students who are more physically active learn better, get better scores on achievement tests and their academic grades improve, Fleischacker said. In other business: • Representatives of Hays- NEA were present and introduced the group's leadership council, which includes president Patty Weber and vice-president Jerry Braun. • Principal Craig Pallister conveyed Felten Middle School teachers' appreciation for new textbooks. • Recognized Hays High teacher Andrea Zody and O'Loughlin teacher Juliann Bliese for being nominated as semi-finalists for the Region I 2003 Kansas Teacher of the Year. Bliese was selected as the elementary school finalist. • Congratulated the Hays High band for its ratings at the Kansas State Fair. • Approved maternity leave for paraeducator Valerie Rogers, provisional employment of Charity Wittman, Roosevelt paraedu- cator, and Mary Jo Reddig, Washington assistant cook, and extra duty assignments.
