The disease is harmless to humans but has devastated livestock in Europe. The virus can be carried on clothing and footwear as well as in meat products. It destroys animals' hooves and causes mouth blisters that ruin their appetites. Warning signs have been posted at the entrance of the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita asking travelers who have been outside the United States in the last five days to check in with the membership office. Those who have visited countries with confirmed cases of the disease are asked to follow certain guidelines. "We do not want the virus," said Dr. William Bryant, the zoo's senior veterinarian. "We are asking any visitors who have traveled overseas in the last four or five days to stop in our membership office. We may have them do a foot bath or at least ask them to stay away from certain areas." Animals that could be affected include sheep, goats, cows, camels, pigs, antelope, deer, alpacas, elephants and hedgehogs. The measures have been recommended by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. At the Rolling Hills Refuge Wildlife Conservation Center in Salina, park director Bob Brown said precautions against disease have always been in place. He • said keepers and others allowed in close proximity to the animals have been tested for tuberculosis and all buildings have foot baths. GoodeU found a limip in her breast in August. She had a mammogram, then a sonogram and finally a biopsy, which confirmed the tumor was malignant. Two days after the biopsy, doctors performed surgery and found the cancer at an early stage. She has bravely made her way through the first round of treatment — chemotherapy —- which ended about two weeks ago. Radiation treatment begins Tuesday and win last five weeks. Then doctors will treat her once a week for a year with an experimental drug, Herceptin, as part of a clinical study Herceptin, which has been used in cancer's later stages, looks for cells that have a specific protein, HUR-2, to destroy them. "I feel good. I get tired from the treatment," she said. "I'm anxious to get things back to normal." But she said some days are harder than others and at such a young age, she just doesn't vm- derstand where things went wrong. GoodeU said she doesn't have a history of cancer in her family, and she's always taken pretty good care of herself. "I still can't believe it's happening," she said. "... I stiU freak out and want to scream or hit something sometimes." Doctors have said her youth provides strength to combat treatment's side effects, but her young age also makes the cancer more aggressive. She said support from her family and the community seems more aggressive than the cancer Her family has provided emotional support. The community has given prayers, cards, flowers and meals. Friends take her son Dylan to child care while she is getting treatment. GoodeU said she receives imbe- lievable support from people that don't even know her "You never know what people reaUy think of you imtU you're faced with something like this," she said with tears weUing in her eyes. "There is so much good out there that has been shown to me, to my husband and to my son." Once a full-time employee with Salina's Social and RehabUita- tion Services office, GoodeU now works only part time. Her husband Craig GoodeU, 44, also works there. To make it easier for his wife at home, he has taken on more responsibility around the house and with Dylan. Because he is older, Craig GoodeU said he sometimes felt worried that if something happened to him, Kellie would have to care for Dylan on her own. "To think that might be reversed is scary," he said. From her experience, KeUie GoodeU has a strong message for aU women — do self breast exams. She also thinks women should get mammograms earlier than the recommended age of 40. As KeUie GoodeU gets some strength back, she looks forward to riding her horses again. She hopes to compete in some local barrel races this spring, too, "Your kids aren't supposed to get sick," said Joyce Watts, who also barrel races. "When they are little, you can pick them up and teU them everything is aU right." Along with famUy and community support and her love of the horses, who soon wiU have a new shelter, her son is what keeps her moving ahead. "I just pray every day that I'U get to watch him grow up," she said. "I'm very adamant about it. I'm not going to give up." HUTCHINSON — The orange fence came down, the security patrol was removed and water was restored to the Big Chief Mobile Home Park. The facility was ready to reopen Friday afternoon, nearly three months after a deadly natural gas explosion closed the park. Big Chief Mobile Home Park owner Robert Kinder, however. said he doesn't have enough tenants to keep the place going, and the 30 people whose homes are stUl on the property wiU have until May 1 to remove them. The facility has been closed since the Jan. 18 explosion that fatally injured John and Mary Ann Hahn, who were residents of Big Chief That blast came a day after another one that destroyed two business in downtown Hutchinson.

The Senate committee found the House's bill too broad. Instead, it endorsed a bill that bans aU gifts worth more than $5 and requires the reporting of meals and snacks worth more than $15. It also contains a provision designed to prevent lobbyists from getting around the reporting requirement by assigning costs from an expensive meal to several clients. But some senators, like Schmidt, question the need for a change. Gov. Graves also has been skeptical. Lt. Gov. Gary Sherrer said, "I do think it would be better to wait. Otherwise, you're just going to get into tinkering with it every year" Still, supporters of change, like Powell, remain hopeful they can push a bill through the Legislature.
