Land Surveyor's Conference set The Continuing Education Department at Kansas Technical Institute is sponsoring the 1986 Land Surveyor's Conference, Friday and Saturday. The annual conference provides workshops for all levels of the surveying profession.

Registration information is available from Tim Landon at KTI by calling 825-0275, ext. 452. Salina schools given SRS grant The Salina Public Schools have received a $31,722 grant from the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services to expand the district's drug and alcohol prevention programs. The funds will pay for Janet Wilbur's services as a full-time prevention specialist at the junior and senior high schools. She will serve with elementary specialist Joanne Elliott, giving the Salina district full-time professional drug and alcohol counselors at both the elementary and high school levels. A portion of the new funds will provide training for teachers and will help parents increase awareness and deal with drug abuse. OCCK gets 3-year accreditation The Occupational Center of Central Kansas has received accreditation in four areas from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The maximum three-year accreditation was awarded after a three- day survey in December by commission surveyors from California and Iowa. The areas of accreditation were vocational evaluation, work adjustment, work services and independent living programs. The surveyors examined OCCK's records and interviewed the staff and representatives of the community. KW plans session on Halle/s People looking for Halley's comet can get some help this week at Kansas Wesley an. The KW Science Division plans a roof-top observation session at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in room 501 of Peters Science Hall. If the sky is too cloudy, the session will be rescheduled for Friday night. If Friday also proves too cloudy, a third attempt will be made Saturday night. The session is free and open to the public. Hutchinson man receives probation After apologizing to the judge, a former Salina man Monday was granted probation from a five- to 15- year prison sentence for taking indecent liberties with a child. William Diggs, 26, Hutchinson, was sentenced in Saline County District Court for an incident involving a'10- year-old girl. "I am very sorry for the offense I committed," Diggs told Associate Judge Gene Penland. "There is no excuse for my actions." Diggs entered a guilty plea Nov. 25 in which he admitted fondling the girl on Sept. 14 while she was sleeping. Penland said the victim suffered no physical harm but the mental trauma she continues to suffer is more devastating. A presentence investigation revealed the girl has been teased by her school classmates, Peiiland said. Diggs' attorney, Public Defender George Robertson, told Penland his client is involved in group and individual therapy and has expressed remorse. An application for diversion, which would delay prosecution, and attempts to reduce the charge were denied because of objections by the victim and her mother, he said. Assistant Saline County Attorney Julie McKenna said she would abide by plea negotiations and, "as difficult as it is to remain silent," would not make a statement on the appropriate sentence. Penland said despite his reservations he would grant Diggs a five- year probation. He fined Diggs $5,000 and ordered that he be responsible for any medical bills the girl has or will accrue because of the incident, that he have no association with the girl or her mother, that he perform 100 hours of community service work and that he continue with counseling. The next Skywatch program at KW will be Jan. 24, 25 and 26 to observe features of the full moon. The 16-inch Cassegrain telescope will be used, in addition to several smaller telescopes. Groups interested in arranging a special program can call Ken Carman or David Clark at Kansas Wesleyan. Anyone interested in forming an Astronomy Club, for youths or adults, can call Sam Cris- bens at 823-6180 or Clark at KW.
