Senate debates budget plan House approves rival plan; KDOT projects are put on hold By JOHN MANNA Tlie Associated Press • COMMUNICATIONS Towns to get new phone, cable service Colby, Goodland will be new markets for S&T Telephone By The Salina Journal COLBY — Many hurdles remain to be crossed, but a Brewster telephone company is gearing up to offer local telephone, long-distance, high-speed Internet and cable television services in Goodland and Colby S&T Telephone Cooperative will launch services to customers in those cities simultaneously in the near future. Goodland and Colby, each with populations of about 5,000, will offer broad new markets to the company that now serves nine rural cities in northwest Kansas with telephone, long-distance and Internet, along with cable television service to seven cities. Steve Richards, S&T general manager, said the company has about 3,000 telephone customers and about 2,000 cable customers. The cities S&T serves, including Brewster and Kanorado, have populations of less than 1,000. S&T plans to construct its own fiberoptic network, and Richards said construction could begin this spring. S&T's plan puts the company in competition with Eagle Cable TV in Goodland, Time Warner Cable in Colby; and a dozen or more Internet companies in the two cities. Hoops to jump S&T will be required by the Kansas Corporation Commission to get licenses to offer telephone and cable services. The company also wUl have to negotiate franchise agreements with both cities. Goodland city officials have said it will be at least three months before a franchise agreement with S&T can be approved. No construction can begin until that agreement is signed. Richards said a telephone survey indicated strong demand for S&T's services in Colby and Goodland, and the company hopes to add 6,000 customers in those markets. "Both state and federal (regulators) are encouraging competition. And we're just adhering to their wishes," he said. "It's going to be a win- win situation for us and these communities." Ellis County studying 911 system for warnings By PHYLLIS J. ZORN Hays Daily News In the foreseeable future, Ellis County residents might be warned of tornadoes and other life-threatening events by telephone. The Ellis County Communications Group, comprised of all emergency response departments in the county, is looking at a new emergency notification service to warn residents of severe weather and other emergencies. Called a "911 callback" system, the emergency notification system calls residents' telephones to deliver necessary information. When the phone is answered, the person hears a recorded message informing them of the event that triggered the call. An advantage of the system is that it warns residents who are indoors. Tornado sirens are designed to W£(rn people who are outdoors. It also does not require residents to subscribe to ca­ ble television. The cable TV systems in Hays, Russell and Ellis are marketing a storm alert system that requires a monthly fee. Besides notifying large areas of such events as severe weather, the 911 system also can be used to notify residents of a targeted area of such incidents as a missing child. People who live in a specific area also could be notified of evacuation because of a chemical spill. It could be used for any "telephone tree" applica­ tion, Worth said. That would even include notifying area banks about counterfeit money being passed. Ellis County officials discussed the system at a communications group meeting this week. All had questions about whether cellular telephone users can be notified by the 911 callback system. Currently, cellular numbers are not available to caller ID and directory listings. The system is available through several different companies, T ROBERT OSBORNE: 1904-2001 Philanthropist who helped shape Olathe dies By The Associated Press OLATHE — Robert R. Osborne, who quietly donated millions of dollars and land to help shape the development of Olathe, has died. Osborne, who went by R.R., died Thursday at the Olathe Medical Center. He was 97. The former banker donated millions of dollars to schools, churches and charities, along with the land in Olathe that became MidAmerica Nazarene University In 1995, Osborne donated $1 million to Baker University to move a 130-year-old limestone chapel block by block from England to the campus. "He was a giant in our com­ munity" university President Richard Spindle said. "He was an authentic philanthropist, someone who just loves to give. ... There were never any strings attached." He died about 3 a.m. Thursday, surrounded by people who cared about him, said Margaret Lamberson, his secretary of 47 years. He entered the medical TOPEKA — After House action and tough talk from Gov. Bill Graves, the Senate late Friday debated a plan for closing a hole in the next state budget. Legislators learned earlier in the day that the state Department of Transportation has halted preliminary work on 15 highway construction projects because of the state's financial problems. They must close a $206 million gap between expected revenues and spending Graves already has signed into law for the state's 2002 fiscal year, which begins July 1. Graves has proposed $117.6 million in tax increases to do that and raise extra money for education. The House approved a plan that does not include any tax increase on an 82-43 vote Friday The Senate plan requires a $10 million increase in taxes paid by insurance companies. Once the Senate approved its plan, negotiations would begin over a final version. Graves repeats veto pledge Graves repeated his pledge to veto the House plan or "any other bill resembling it." Budget Director Duane Goossen said the Senate measure was preferable to the House version but added, "There are still some worrisome things." Some senators were harsher "We're doing some voodoo mathematics to make our budget work this year," said Sen. center two weeks ago with pneumonia, she said. Osborne said in a 1995 interview that he did not mind a little publicity but did not think it was important for people to know how much he had donated over the years. "I don't think it's anybody's business, to be quite honest," Osborne said. Janis Lee, D-Kensington. Both chambers' plans make accounting changes, step up the collection of delinquent taxes and tap funds that aren't used normally to pay for general government spending. Both also rewrite the appropriations already approved — the House to save about $81 million; the Senate, about $40 million. A 5.2 percent increase Before they recessed April 6, legislators approved $4.66 billion in spending for fiscal 2002 from the state general fund, which holds most tax revenues and is the largest source of money for Kansas government programs. The increase was about $230 million, or 5.2 percent. The net result of all the Senate changes would be an overall increase in general fund spending of $4 million, or 0.1 percent in fiscal 2002 from this year's level. The House plan would decrease general fund spending by $10 million, or 0.2 percent. The Graves administration also warned that legislative budget proposals would jeopardize projects included in the 10- year, $13.9 billion transportation program enacted in 1999. The 15 projects halted by the Department of Transportation are not part of the program but had been considered top priorities if new money had become available. A letter listing them became public Friday It was from Secretary Dean Carlson to Sen. Jim Barone, D-Frontenac, a member of the Senate Ways and Means Committee. "We will be making additional cuts, in projects that we've included in the program, once we know what the final numbers are," Carlson told reporters.
