Dedication Library to be dedicated in Bird City BIRD CITY — The dedication of the Mary L. Gritten Library will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday Herbert Bacon, Grand Junction, Colo., will speak at 3. The Bacon Family Foundation was a major donor to the library project. Bacon's mother, Ona Bacon, was a charter member of the library when it was founded in 1927, serving as library chairwoman for four years. Seed money for the new facility, $123,000, came from Walter Eggers in 1989. Security State Bank donated the building site. It was cleared with volunteer help. A direct mail fund-raiser was used to raise money to meet the Bacon Family Grant's $50,000 in matching funds. Other fund-raising activities helped the community complete the $226,000 project without a bond issue. It opened in July of 2000. The old library space in city hall is city offices. The late Mary L. Gritten, the library's namesake, was a longtime grade school teacher in Bird City who started the kids' reading program at the library From Staff Reports Champions honoped The Associated Press Gov.

T LEGISLATURE Legislation to give state White home Graves plans to sign bill, turning Emporia home into historic site By JOHN HANNA The Associated Press TOPEKA — A bill to allow the state to take possession of the Emporia home of legendary editor William Allen White went Thursday to Gov. Bill Graves. The Senate voted 40-0 to accept an amendment to the bill added in the House, which took the bill up after senators approved it. Graves plans to sign the bill, spokesman Don Brown said, adding the governor views the proposal as "the best and most efficient way to preserve the property and the historic value that goes with it." "The governor is extremely supportive of the effort," Brown said. The legislation would let the Kansas State Historical Society turn the home into a historic site. The House amendment says federal funds, money from local governments or donations will pay for the site's operating costs. Federal funds of $700,000 have been set aside to preserve the home. "It amazes me how many people are aware of William Allen White; he's internationally known," said state Rep. Lloyd Stone, R-Emporia. "It'll be a real tourist attraction, and it's a great honor to him, which he richly deserves." Already designated a national historic landmark, the house has been visited by six presidents and has a front staircase designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. White, an Emporia native born in 1868, edited The Emporia Gazette for 49 years, starting in 1895. He died in 1944. He won the Pulitzer Prize for a 1922 editorial, "Letter to an Anxious Friend." He first came to national attention for his 1896 editorial, "What's the Matter with Kansas?" an attack on the Populist Party Senate OKs privacy protection By The Associated Press TOPEKA — Legislation protecting the privacy of Kansans' health and financial information cleared the Senate on a 39-1 vote Thursday and now returns to the House for review of amendments. The bill updates state law in accordance with model legislation approved last year by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. "Without question, Kansans should control their own personal health and financial information," Insurance Commissioner Kathleen Sebelius said in a statement after the vote. Supporters said the measiire ensures that financial institutions, health care providers and insurance companies do not share medical information without consumers' permission. In addition, insurance companies could not sell patients' personal health information, such as lists of patients with specific conditions. The Senate defeated an amendment by Sen. Dave Corbin, R-Towanda, to increase the tax paid by insurance companies on premiums. Senate President Dave Kerr, R-Hutchinson, said the increase would have raised $7 million to $10 million a year for the state.
