Workshop Workshop set for education advocates CONCORDIA — More than 450 Kansas children with disabilities need someone to represent them in special education because their parents are unknown or no longer have parental rights.

A free workshop to become such an advocate is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. April 18 at Cloud County Community College. After a brown-bag lunch, sessions will continue from 1 to 2 p.m. Education advocates will represent special education students by becoming acquainted with the child and the child's school history, helping design the child's education program, reviewing special education programs and acting as the child's advocate in school matters. The workshop is provided by Families Together, Topeka. Enrollment is limited. To register, call Susan Arnold or Darla Nelson-Metzger at Families Together, 1-800-264-6343.

Your input is needed at these meetings. It was barely raining, so high school match went on as scheduled By The Associated Press OVERLAND PARK — A 14-year- old girl who was struck by lightning as she played in a school soccer game was improving in the hospital Tuesday. Her condition was upgraded from critical to serious. Katie Zemel was not breathing and did not have a pulse after the lightning strike about 4:50 p.m. Monday. A spectator administered CPR, and Zemel's heartbeat and breathing resumed as she was rushed to Overland Park Regional Medical Center. "Her progress has been very good," Dr. James Kaplan said. He said that although the electrical exposure from a lightning strike is extremely high — thousands of times more than household exposure — it is very brief. "As long as someone is rapidly resuscitated, the outcome is usually quite favorable," he said. Zemel, a freshman at Shawnee Mission South High School, was playing in the soccer game against Blue Valley North. The players were chasing after the ball on a Freshman recovers from statewide trek By Harris News Service POMONA — Pomona High School freshman Josh Home was recovering at home after finishing a 250- mile foot journey across Kansas Sunday at the Oklahoma border. Josh came up with the idea of running across the state while returning from a family trip last August. "It was a little more than he bargained for," said his mother. "But he came out feeling good about it. He accomplished what he had set to do. He fought a lot of wind, and he had a long hard journey." Josh set out March 21 at the Nebraska border hoping to complete about 50 miles a day, which turned out to be a little tougher than he expected.

"It was the first clatter of thunder they heard that afternoon," said Corky Jacobs, principal at Shawnee Mission South. "It struck, and they all went to their knees, and one player didn't get up." Jacobs said it was up to athletic directors and coaches whether to start a game. Game officials would have to decide whether to stop a game once it had started. The Kansas State High School Activities Association has guidelines that administrators should follow during inclement weather. Chris Douglas, athletic director at Blue Valley North, postponed softball and baseball doubleheaders with Paola because of the long drive for Paola players and fans. He said he did not want the teams and spectators to make the drive only to have the games canceled. "Typically, with soccer it's understood that we aren't going call the game unless there is a sign of lightning," Douglas said. "It's like football, where play rain or shine." Douglas said he had discussed the weather with the soccer coach about 3:20 p.m. Monday, and there "was barely a drizzle" at the time.
