Museum shows signs of growth Flywheels museum gets new sign in honor of anniversary By The Salina Journal The Central Kansas Flywheels Museum has been honoring the history of farming and industry and its heritage for 25 years. As an anniversary present, Sylvan Grove's Vonanda Stone Co. made the Salina museum a limestone sign, indicative of the yesteryear in which much of the treeless prairie's homes and fences were built with native rock. Neola O'Neal has a copy of her grandmother's diary. Jack O'Neal, Neola's husband, said the diary traces farming back to the days of cutting wheat with a scythe. When the family bought its first combine in 1920, she wrote, "What's this world coming to?" Jack said. Remembering Kansas' ancestors is important in today's much different society, O'Neal said. "This is a museum where you honor things of the past and keep the heritage to show (to the next generations)," he said. Gene Lundgrin, a museum charter member, watched as the sign was installed Saturday morning. He said he hopes the museum, with recent additions of a one-room schoolhouse and a 1930s filling station with an early 1900s Wells church soon to come, will continue to be in operation for decades to come. KC school mess reaches courts By JOSH FREED The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — These days, it seems nearly everyone wants to run the Kansas City school district. The superintendent says he'd be glad to run it, but the school board tried to fire him. A federal judge overruled the board, leaving observers to wonder if he's the one in charge. Some lawmakers say things have gotten so bad, only the state can run the district. The only official showing no interest in running the school district is Mayor Kay Barnes, who says only the state can perform a takeover. The relationship between the school board and superintendent Benjamin Demps Jr. reached a meltdown this week when five board members voted in an emergency meeting to fire Demps. Four other board members walked out of the meeting. One of those four, Patricia Kurtz, filed a lawsuit Thursday in Jackson County Circuit Court, claiming the five who voted to fire Demps violated the Missouri Sunshine Law and acted illegally in removing the superintendent. Then, Demps' firing was overturned Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Dean Whipple. He ordered all nine board members to court next Friday to explain why he shouldn't overturn the firing permanently But in a school district where no legal deed goes unchallenged, Whipple's order was appealed Friday by Arthur Benson II, who represents children in a class-action desegregation lawsuit against the school district. Benson's motion to the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis claims Whipple doesn't have the authority to tell the school board what to do. The school board voted Saturday morning to join Benson's appeal. "The district needs progress. On the Missouri Assessment Program test of reading and writing, 55 percent of third- graders scored in the bottom two levels during the 1999-2000 school year, compared to 30 percent statewide. On the MAP math test, 84 percent of eighth graders scored in the bottom two levels, compared to 57 percent statewide. Kansas City's graduation rate of 59 percent trails the state average of 79 percent. -iBtoGuard Pool School S^POol&Spa ;![prii23, ^products 6:30 p.m. 823-7512 SUNFLOWER The Keyboard Carriage Has Arrived!
