Recovery Cove aims to raise funds to renovate new facility Organization assists those seeking help from chemical dependency By ALF ABUHAJLEH The Salina Journal Recovery Cove, a nonprofit organization that provides a daytime haven for people seeking help from chemical dependency, is seeking donations to fund a $10,000 renovation of its new downtown facility. The renovation is expected to start next week at 139 N. Santa Fe. Brian Metzger, Recovery Cove president, said that although the organization has the funds to pay for the renovation, the expense would tax the organization. Thus far about $1,500 has been raised. "The fund-raising campaign has worked well," Metzger said, adding that Recovery Cove has solicited donations since the summer. "People and businesses have been responsive to what we are trying to T TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE How to contribute For information about how to give donations to Recovery Cove, call 913-841-6678. do and willing to help out." Recovery Cove is moving its quarters from 202Va E. Iron to a 1,300-square-foot building. The property, made up of three storefronts, was acquired earlier this year from Sunflower Bank, 2090 S. Ohio, for $1. Recovery Cove is in the process of buying two adjacent rest rooms from the city for $1,600. The rest rooms were closed in 1994 because of low pedestrian traffic, vandalism and a lack of accessibility for those with disabilities. The city's Parks and Recreation Department has since used the rest rooms for storage. Recovery Cove also is paying the city $2,400 to repair the roof that covers the building, rest rooms and adjacent arcade. Steve Snyder, director of the Salina Parks and Recreation Department, said the city has contracted with Tom Egan Roofing, 1315 E. Iron, to do the job, which will begin within a week. When the roof is repaired, Recovery Cove will take possession of the building and start the interior renovation, Snyder said. Metzger said he expects the organization to move into the building by.early 1997. But first there is a lot of work to do. "We need a total renovation," Metzger said. "We need paint, concrete blocks, cleaning equipment and doors." Metzger said the facility will house social events for its members as well meetings by Alcoholics Anonymous groups. "It will be a safe, alcohol-free and drug-free area," Metzger said. "Chemical dependency is a problem that exists here in Salina, but that doesn't get much attention. Our organization can make a change." Hays to be site of Telepower '96 Fifth annual event to include demonstrations, workshops, speeches By The Journal Staff HAYS — The interactive video and other telecommunications tools at the Hays Medical Center are among the more advanced in the nation. In Nebraska, a group of remote rural towns have linked themselves together by computer to become a single community. Such examples will be on display four days beginning Monday in Hays during the fifth annual telecommunications and information technology conference organized by Fort Hays State University's Docking Institute of Public Af- fairs. The theme of Telepower '96 will be "Building an Information Community." Activities will begin Monday with two simultaneous events — the Education/Information Technology Fair at the Hays Mall and an educational workshop conducted by Bob Hughes, a Boeing executive on leave. Hughes also will give the kickoff speech Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Fort Hays State during a free public session entitled "Building an Information Community." Tuesday will open with tours of Hays businesses, including Hays Medical Center. Representatives from five "information communities" from across the nation also will give presentations. The towns will receive awards that night at the 6:45 governors banquet in the ballroom at Fort Hays State. The speaker will be Kris Kimel, director of the Televil- lage Initiative and president of the Kentucky Science and Technology Council. Linda Aerni, manager of Internet and Intranet for the Nebraska Public Power District will tell the story Wednesday of the five Nebraska communities that are now linked. The final day of the conference will be devoted to a half-day of workshops for those interested in creating World Wide Web pages and learning other aspects of computer technology.
