The National Weather Service placed 64 counties under tornado watches until 1 a.m. Saturday, as the storm moved out of the west into central Kansas. "We've had reports of at least 60 to 65 mile-an- hour winds, and one unconfirmed report out near Russell of winds near 100 miles per hour," said John Woynick, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Topeka. Woynick said there were no reports of serious wind damage. There were reports of signs blown down by the high winds, and the tin roof was blown off a chicken coop near Wallace. High winds have preceded the storm, often leading to gusts near 50 mph before the storm even arrived, Woynick said. Hail measuring L75 inches in diameter was reported in Hill City. No tornados were confirmed, though spotters reported a possible tornado sighting near Quinter along Interstate 70 in Gove County 827-6879 or 825-4427. • BENNINGTON: Bennington High School presents "Fiddler on the Roof." 2:30 p.m. Tickets at the door, $4 for adults and $2 for students K-12. • COLBY: Prairie Museum of Art and History recognizes Kansas Archaeology Week with "Salina-Area Archaeology in the 1930s: The Indian Burial Pit and Other Adventures of the Whiteford Family." 2 p.m., Garvey Educational Room, 1905 S.

Senate approves plan to improve air service Spealier Bill that would help Wichita airport goes back to House By The Associated Press TOPEKA — A bill designed to lower airfares and increase traffic at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport won Senate approval. The 37-3 vote Friday returns the bill to the House. Under the bill, the state and the city each would guarantee $4 million to cover potential losses of a discount airline. Supporters named Ryan International Airlines in Wichita as the most likely to step forward. The city and local investors would have to pay the costs of starting up discount airline service, estimated at $1.2 million. Before the airline can get the state's guarantee, it will have to presell 50 percent of the seats on its flights. Concerns about high airfares held up passage of the bill extending the Kansas Lottery The House added a proposal to use $4 million in lottery revenues to subsidize airfares, but that idea went nowhere in the Senate. It was removed from the lottery bill after senators agreed to draft a separate proposal.

Ohio/Salina/785'823-6372/ From Staff Reports Money questions pile up for board N A T U R A L I Z E R. TACOMA • Black • Brown • Bone 122 S. Santa Fe DOWNTOWN SALINA 823-2146 By The Associated Press HAYSVILLE — Haysville's entire school board ran up a $17,249 bill to attend a conference in San Diego. The district is already trying to answer questions about its soon-to-be former superintendent H. Lynn Stevens, who ran up monthly charges as high as $16,000 on a district credit card. He's on paid leave and has said he will retire. His spending is under investigation by school officials and law enforcement. The board members returned from the National School Board Association conference a few days before Tuesday's elections, when voters tossed three of them out of office. Paul Getto, policy specialist with the Kansas School Board Association, said the organization makes no recommendations on how many board mem­ bers should go to educational conferences. But he said some districts choose- to send their whole board. Haysville usually sends all of its board members to state and national school board conferences, district officials said. "We have traditionally viewed this as a very valuable conference for the board members," said community relations coordinator Sandy Bradshaw. "It's an excellent way to keep up with what's going on in education." The Wichita Eagle obtained the Haysville board's travel expenses through the Kansas Open Records Act. Glenn Crum, vice president of the board, said he returned with materials for educators, including proposed changes in federal funding for special education. He said he brought back videos on how emergency crews should respond to crises in the schools. Crum spent the most on per diem travel and daily expenses, because he took a 36-hour Amtrak train ride to San Diego instead of flying. The train trip required a total of three days more travel time than the other board members. That pushed his $40-a- day per diem total to $400. Other board members' per diem expenses totaled $240 or less. "My wife isn't too keen on flying," Crum said. reatment for Children's Bekvior Problems ckmhc Central Kansas Mental Health Center Serving the people of Dickinson, Ellsworth, Lincoln, Ottawa & Saline Counties 809 Elmhurst • Salina 823-6322 1-800-794-8281 Dine In or Carry Out.
