BOB: Board also discusses lunch software CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 The estimated revenue for fiscal year 2007 is $2,451,000, with ongoing expenditures estimated at $2,351,000. That leaves $50,000 for emergency reserve and another $50,000 for carryover for the following year. There also was considerable discussion on a new online fee and lunch software/hardware package that will cost the district $39,000. ; ShielaBrening, director of nutrition services for the district, explained to the board how the system would work and that it "would centralize all the schools into one program." "Our current system is on three different platforms," Brening said of different systems at the elementary, middle and high school levels, "and none of those can communicate with each other." "The different systems are covering our needs," she added, "but those in the elementary schools are 20 to 25 years old and will have to be replaced anyway" In other action concerning school lunches, the board voted to increase all student meals by 10 cents next year. The adult breakfasts will increase by a nickel, and there will be no change for adult lunches because of a larger increase in that category last year. The highest student costs will be at Hays High School, where lunches will cost $1.90. A survey of meal fees for other districts across the state shows Hays still consider* ably lower than schools comparable to the same size as Hays. At Salina, which has two schools in Class 5A, the same classification as Hays, lunches for high school students are $2.10, and at McPherson, another 5A school, they cost $2.25. The board also approved bills of $8,639,280 for payment. In other action Monday, the board approved: A wellness policy with guide- lines specified in the Kansas State Department of Education's Wellness Policy The policy, which previously had been approved by the district's curriculum council, includes goals on nutrition education and physical activity, as well as establishing nutrition standards for all foods available at district schools. • An agreement with the Northwest Education Association for the purchase of a Measures of Academic Progress prpgram, ,.,,,.,, MAP, which measures students' academic progress, will replace the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. • Board meeting dates for 200607. There are two meetings scheduled in July, October, November, February, April and May and one for the months of August, September, December, January, March and June. • Designation of surplus property Brooks Kellogg recently donated new seating for the 12th Street Auditorium at Rockwell Ad- ministration, and the old seats needed to be designated as surplus property • A swimming contract of $10,000 with Hays Medical Center's Center for Health Improvement. Hays High uses CHI's pool for physical education classes, as well as for its swim teams' practices and meets. • A self medication policy for students with asthma or allergies. • Numerous bids, including air . conditioning for the O'Loughlin ,-.: v -Elementary School gym. The, , board approved the bid of $32,755 from Classman Corp. Half of that will be paid by the district, and the other half will be paid by the school's Parent-Teachers Association. Other bids voted on were for copy paper, custodial paper, trash pickup, multi-peril insurance and milk.

Reynolds, a Hays native back in town for the summer from the University of Kansas, also crooned songs about killing his neighbor's dog, junior-high love and other politically incorrect topics perhaps not suited for this family-oriented publication. He also sang, with a tone somewhere between adoration and bitterness, a tune about Hays, which included lyrics about the feedlot smell, the high winds and the city water ordinance. "Guys like him keep this thing going," said Brendan Arnold, Semolino supervisor. "We've packed the house the past couple of weeks. Even though tonight's a little smaller crowd, it's really been catching on since we started it about eight or nine weeks ago." Arnold is open to all kinds of acts. It's run the gamut, from a girl bringing in a CD and singing along to a song to a full-fledged band. "Right now we're just looking for the type of people who will get up in front of everybody and entertain," Arnold said. "It's been pretty successful." Two weeks prior at an Open Mic Night, Nick Schmidt performed an acoustic set with a friend. Schmidt is part of a punk rock outfit called Pro-Choice. "We used to have other buildings in Hays that we could play at, but they fell through," Schmidt said. "Now, we're just trying to get something going with the music scene in Hays. These Open Mic Nights have a lot of good stuff going on." Also performing Monday night was Clippings, an experimental sketch comedy troupe made up of Fort Hays State University graduates Scott Rader and Aaron Rupp. The duo has performed for the past three weeks and hopes to continue. "Clippings came out of Aaron and I both being graduates but having no direction in life," Rader said, perhaps joking. In one sketch, "emo caveman," Rader and Rupp transported the teenage angst and apathy of the emo kid cliche into the prehistoric era — to those old enough to be uninitiated with the increasingly esoteric youth culture, "emo," short for "emotive," began as a subgenre of hardcore punk music and developed into a fashion style of sideways caps and tanktops with ties and an attitude of melancholy and alienation (see Fall Out Boy). Clippings' opening skit involved a robbery in which they wore pantyhose on their heads and solicited items from the audience. They closed the set with a protest song about how soldiers should be able to take their puppies to war. Some people were confused. "The crowds are nice," Rader said. "They get us ... mostly. It's a good place to see if stuff works, to see if this stuff is funny to other people than us."

Winning powerball ticket sold in Broken Arrow OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A QuikTrip convenience store in Broken Arrow sold the winning Powerball ticket worth $101.8 million in Saturday night's drawing, the Oklahoma Lottery Commission confirmed on Monday "We have verified that the ticket was in fact sold there," Lottery Commission spokeswoman Beverly Hughes said. "Of course there are still several security tests that will have to be conducted once the winner comes forward." Hughes said no additional information will be made available until the player comes forward to claim the prize. This is the first time a jackpot-winning Powerball ticket has been purchased in Oklahoma since the multi-state game started in the state in January. She said it's not unusual for big winners to delay claiming their prize until after talking to an attorney or financial adviser. "In most cases, people don't come forward right away," she said. Lottery winners have 180 days from the date of sale to come forward with their ticket, Hughes said. Alyssa Novinger, a clerk at the QuikTrip store where the winning ticket was sold, said she was shocked to learn the winning ticket was sold there. "I heard last night it was a QuikTrip, but I didn't know it was from my store," Novinger said. "It's amazing, actually I'm in shock. I'm really excited and happy for the person." FORUM: Event will allow candidates to discuss issues with voters CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 Because there are two meetings at the same time, legislators and school board candidates have indicated they will attend one in person and send a representative to the other. Rich Kramer, governmental relations network representative for Hays USD 489, said he had confirmation that Cauble and Cruz would be attending the Hays forum. Efforts to reach Morris this morning were unsuccessful. "The purpose of the meetings is to allow both candidates and voters to learn more about public education in Kansas as we move toward the August primary and November general election," Edwards said. Kramer agreed. "This should be Informative," said Kramer, in his second term on the Hays school board. "Anyone interested in learning more about the issues in public education ought to come out and hear this." The forums were scheduled to begin today in Topeka and will continue through June 30.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks were mixed in aimless trading today as solid housing data did little to shake Wall Street from its funk over interest rates and the economy's health. The market appeared to steady itself from a steep decline in Monday's session, but more erratic trading was expected In the coming days as Investors await the Federal Reserve's latest statement on inflation and economic growth after its meeting next week. A sharply stronger-than-expected jump in new home construction quelled some concerns about a melting economy and countered downbeat housing news the day before. The Commerce Department said May housing starts grew 5 percent to 1.96 million, topping estimates of 1.87 million. But while higher profit at supermarket chain Kroger Co. and McDonald's Corp.'s deal to build drive-through restaurants in China helped some stocks, the gains were limited as higher oil prices raised Inflation concerns. In midmorning trading, the Dow Jones industrial average gained 12.88, or 0.12 percent, to 10,954.99. Broader stock indicators fluctuated. The Standard & Poor's 500 index was up 1.15, or 0.09 percent, at 1,241.29, and the Nasdaq composite index slid 2.03, or 0.1 percent, to 2,108.39. Bonds slipped, with the yield on the 10-year Treasury note edging up to 5.15 percent from 5.14 percent late Monday. The 2-year yield stood at 5.19 percent, signaling less confidence in long-term debt amid expectations of an economic slowdown.
