The new transitional housing program seeks to fill a void in services for homeless people. The program would provide housing for those who do not qualify for programs such as public housing or those who need more time to make adjustments than the Ashby For rhore information about Ashby House ,or to make a donation, call 826-4935. ,-."'; House's emergency shelter can provide. Ashby House is a community-supported shelter for homeless families and single women. Residents receive instruction in basic life skills and employment preparation while staying at the shelter. The average stay at Ashby House is 30 days. That often is not long enough for families to receive the needed skills and preparation to be self-sufficient, director Bryan Anderson said in an earlier interview. The families in the transitional program could continue to participate in Ashby House skills classes such as those teaching parenting, health, budgeting and job preparation. Time in transitional housing would allow the family to pay off utility debts or court obligations. They also could save for rent and utility deposits, which can run from $500 to $1,000, according to Ashby House. Affordable housing especially for large families is in short supply, and the new program would allow extra time to search for an affordable and adequate home. The apartment building at 153 S. Eighth, which is across the street from Ashby House, costs $180,000, but another $70,000 is needed to refurbish the building. The campaign was kicked off with $48,000 in pledges, but Ashby House officials would not reveal the source of the funds. Details such as the length of stay, number of units and cost to residents will be determined at a board meeting Monday and announced at a Tuesday press conference, Anderson said. Operation of the new program will be funded similarly to the current Ashby House program through community contributions, local church support and United Way funding. •& > OfiWWwffiKO * ^ ADVERTISING!

T EDUCATION Brown Mackie still searching for new site Two-year school wants to move to south Salina to raise visibility and increase available parking By CHAD HAYWORTH The Salina Journal Listing Events **• " -- A Tis for the Calendar of Events should ht at least two weeks in nee to: Calendar of Events, The fta Journal, P.O. Box 740, Salina 36. Be sure to include name, adnfess and telephone number. ' Although more than a year of searching has not been fruitful, officials of Brown Mackie College are continuing their hunt for a new home in south Salina. "We're still hanging on for the right location," said Judy McClintock, director of the private, for-profit junior college housed for decades on the second floor of downtown storefronts. "We just haven't found anything that fits our needs." TFIRE The college began looking for a new location in January 1997, with hopes of moving by January of this year. By moving from 126 S. Santa Fe, the college's home since 1947, administrators hope to solve several issues for the school, including a lack of visibility and scarcity of parking. Founded in 1892 as part of Kansas Wesleyan University, Brown Mackie became independent in 1933. The two-year school offers career-oriented associate degrees in such areas as paralegal, criminal justice and business administration management. McClintock said that the school would like to find a building smaller than the 28,000 square feet of space that now houses the school. George Johnson, a realty agent at Coldwell Banker Antrim Piper Wenger Realtors, 631 E. Crawford, said he's not surprised that the search has taken longer than expected. "Office space is difficult to find out south," he said. "It's mainly retail and sales space that is available. I don't know what they've looked at, but I can't think of anyplace that fits their needs in that end of town." Johnson said land is available that Brown Mackie could build on, but McClintock said that's not an option. "It is extremely cost prohibitive to build," she said. "We have to find a building that already exists and remodel to fit our needs." McClintock said the college isn't giving up. "We definitely plan on moving in the near future," she said. • house Burning bed damages brothers' home <|pen house planned t6|ay at Access TV munity Access Television .

Two hours later Baeza's brother, Gilbert Guillermo, sleeping in another upstairs bedroom, was awakened by the fire alarm. The mattress was still burning. The brothers called police. Fire Marshal Jerry Scott said wind blowing through an open window most likely fed the fire in the mattress. , Scott said that because of the air pockets in mattresses, fires are extremely difficult to extinguish. "No mattress fire ever goes out," he said. "You treat the symptoms, but you don't get to the cause." The Guillermo brothers did not have renter's insurance, something Bob Holston, fire investigator, said is crucial for people renting property. ( Holston said that renter's insurance is affordable but that he has never known of a renter who had it. "It's sad, because some of these folks lose everything," he said. "It will be the best money you've ever spent." No injuries were reported, but the Guillermos sustained $2,000 in losses, and the rental unit, owned by Jim Hemmy, sustained damages of $8,000.
