TODAY'S SCRIPTURE Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." — John 20:29 (NIV) Festival / Children to get taste of art FROM PAGE B1 be allowed to go through the tent — unaccompanied by adults — and purchase pieces of art. Each piece will be marked at a "child-affordable" price, $5 or less. "The child can make his own selection, then go onto the festival grounds and visit the artists," Hall said. "The artists may sign the works and talk to the children. The idea is to educate children and to help them become the art patrons of the future." The festival will focus on the art of the future with "Project Bandaloop," performance artists who will display their aerial, vertical and horizontal dance movements from atop the city water tower on Markley Road the Wednesday of festival week. A 35-foot-tall structure will be erected in the ice skating pond where Project Bandaloop will perform an original piece five or six times during the festival. Festival coordinator Lana Jordan said the group has performed off rocks at Yosemite National Park, on the New York Stock Exchange building and at other sites. "It's futuristic," she said. "It's pulling the festival forward." The return of the Sheiks Both the past and the future can be glimpsed through musical headliners chosen for this year's festival. The "retrospective component" comes in Friday night, when the band Cruisin' will play for an old fashioned street dance at 8:30 p.m. at the Oakdale Stage. "They've performed at the festival before, but they've been away for probably 10 years," Jordan said. "They will recreate that traditional street dance atmosphere." The Geyer Street Sheiks from St. Louis will close out the festival, performing their fiddle and banjo tunes, rural blues and early urban blues and jazz at 4 p.m. Sunday on the Oakdale Stage. The Sheiks return after an absence of several years as well. Sandwiched between the two returning bands is Cowboy Mouth, performing for the first time at the festival for an outdoor concert Saturday night. "They're called rock 'n' roll for today" Jordan said. The New Orleans group, a self-described "rock 'n' roll revival show," has a large following in St. Louis, Benson said. "They're popular with the college crowds," she said. Also returning to this year's festival will be The Arrogant Worms, a festival favorite last year The Canadian group has entertained throughout North America. The Saturday night Big Band dance at the Bicentennial Center will continue, with Bobby Layne and his orchestra providing the music. One tradition that won't continue this year is the Saturday evening concert at the Bicentennial Center, where crowds had been getting smaller, Jordan said. Instead, she said, festival coordinators are "emphasizing the outdoors, where people tend to want to be." A Saturday night concert in the Bicentennial Center still is an option for the future, she said.

At Hays, which is at the top of its 25 percent local-option budget, the district has been cutting staff at the rate of 11 or 12 a year for the past three years. "We have about reached the end of what we can do with staff cuts," Superintendent Fred Kaufman said. The district is considering eliminating its summer programs to offset energy costs. The committee agreed Tues­ day to a new $99.4 million package that, among other things, increases the base state aid per pupil by $90, to $3,910. Sen. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, said the biggest challenge would be reaching consensus with a House of Representatives bent on no taxes. "The last I checked, a bill has to pass both chambers," Jenkins said. Umbarger said he still harbored hope of convincing colleagues to step up for public education. "It's easy to come to Topeka with your mind made up," he said. T LEGISLATURE Shortfall may close courts By The Associated Press TOPEKA — State budget problems could force district and appellate court offices to close for an extra day between now and June 30. The Kansas Supreme Court is considering that idea — and not paying most judicial employees for that day — as a way of helping close a $300,000 hole in its budget. The $300,000 is the difference between the court system's current budget, about $87.5 million, and what the Supreme Court says it needs to meet its payroll and expenses. The Supreme Court oversees the state court'system. The Supreme Court says the problem is worse for the state's 2002 fiscal year, which begins July 1. Gov. Bill Graves' recommendations would leave the courts about $1.2 million short. Supreme Court spokesman Ron Keefover said Tuesday shutting down operations for a day would save about $176,000 in salary costs. The rest of savings would come from cutting expenses in various areas. •N THE RECORD TUESDAY'S DRAWmiG DAILY PICK 3 5-1-5 Police bloner THEFT — A personal computer was taken and a wire to a video camera in a store bathroom was damaged at Wal-Mart, 2900 S.
