(But that's not the real surprise.) It's that women can help reduce the risk of certain serious birth defects.

Among the suggestions are expansion of several childhood programs, more space for those programs, a new Family Resource Center, a community awareness campaign and child care services at Salina high schools. The Creating the Future Priority Action Team vvas formed a year ago to come up with recommendations for early childhood education and teacher recruitment and retention. The team is suggesting that funding for its recommendations come from various grants and organizations, including city and county taxes, United Way, Heartland Programs and Salina Regional Health Center. Mary Andersen, a Creating the Future member, will present the recommendations at today's board meeting at 5 p.m. at the district office, 1511 Gypsum. She said it wasn't necessarily the team's responsibility to find resources but to suggest them. T LEGISLATURE "I understand (city/county sales tax) has a lot of implications for the whole community," Andersen said. "When the community knows the need, this community does support quality education. Spending money to prevent damaging behaviors always proves to be cost effective." Repairs and renovations Also today, the board will discuss repairs and renovations not included in the current bond-issue construction, including reroofing Hageman Elementary School, 409 W. Cloud, the Education Center and Roosevelt-Lincoln Middle School, 210 W. Mulberry; air conditioning some classrooms, replacing bleachers at Salina South High School, remodeling student bathrooms at Kennedy Preschools, 700 Jupiter, and replacing carpet in Little House Adult Learning Center, 119 E. Mulberry The board also will be asked to approve: • $1.24 million in construction services for Central High School. • A 2001-2002 budget for the Salina Area Technical School of $2.44 million, a 2 percent increase over the 2000-2001 budget. • The 2001-2002 school calendar, which begins Aug. 23 and ends May 30. Graves signs bills to Stop mad cow disease Governor also signs bill that creates new day for Arbor Day By The Associated Press TOPEKA — Gov. Bill Graves has signed into law legislation dealing with promoting buffalos, preventing mad cow disease and celebrating trees. One new law will designate the last Friday in April as Arbor Day and directs the governor to issue a proclamation celebrating it. The holiday is now the last Friday in March, but supporters of the bill say it's often too cold until April to plant trees — the traditional way of celebrating. A second law will'give the secretary of agriculture more authority to seize contaminated animal feed and fine merchants who sell the contami­ nated feed. Supporters say the bill will help the state prevent an outbreak of mad cow disease, which often starts with contaminated feed. A third law will limit an individual's liability for injuries if that person owns buffalo, emus, ostriches, giraffes or camels. The "buffalo bill" is meant to promote state tourism by providing more legal protection to people wishing to showcase the animals for visitors. All three new laws take effect July 1.
