Loretta Zimmerman Argentineans take in Kansas siglits Exchange group finds similarities, differences to tiieir Jionneiand By TANA THOMSON The Salina Journal The exhausted group of Argentineans settled back Monday evening, enjoying a glass of wine and the view of the vineyards at the Smoky Hill Vineyard and Winery At last, a bit of rest for the weary who have been traveling from one small Kansas town to another for the past three weeks. Salina is the largest Kansas stop for the five professionals who are here with the Rotary International Group Study Exchange program. The visitors, all from the province of Santa Fe in Argentina, took off their blue blazers, loosened their ties and untucked their shirts for a short rest before moving off to their next engagement at Kansas Wesleyan University. After hearing it was almost 7 p.m. — time to go to dinner — Maria Fernanda Coronati's mouth dropped open. She was surprised how the day had flown by The group arrived Monday morning from Russell and met with Salina coordinators at Wesleyan before breaking up to tour The Land Institute, A Plus Galvanizing, Continental Analytical Laboratories and the Salina School District. They gave short presentations to the Salina Rotary Club at noon, then toured KASA Industrial Controls and the Rolling Hills Refuge and Wildlife Conservation Center before relaxing at the winery Monday was much like the 19 days before. The team has stayed in Russell, Smith Center, McPherson, Lindsborg, Great Bend, Hays, Goodland and other nearby towns.

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is a wise man's rebuke to a listening ear. — Praverbs 25:12 (NIV) ^M ®###Niinieis Learning about Kansas Coronati, 29, is a translator and teaches at a high school and a private school. After seeing the Salina School District and other districts in western Kansas, she said American and Argentina's public schools are "miles apart." T LEGISLATURE "Most important is the exchange of different realities." Maria Vaieria Lara Argentinean visitor to Kansas All public education in Argentina, including public universities, is free. The teaching style also is vastly different: "The students (here) work in a free atmosphere ... and work quietly," she said. It is much different from the structiu-ed classes in Argentina. Coronati said Kansas students have access to more and newer technology She teaches in a school with only three old computers for the 200 students. Leandro Perugini, 27, an agronomical engineer, said the landscape is similar to Santa Fe's, but land is more expensive there and there is enough rain that farmers don't need irrigation. An acre of land in Argentina costs about $8,000; similar land in Kansas might sell for $1,500. Christian Moran, 27, and Maria Valeria Lara, 26, both said they have found industries here to be simUar to those in their field in Argentina. Moran is a chemist and Lara is a biochemist. The group also has soaked up the cultural and societal differences between the two covm- tries. They aren't used to eating dinner or retiring to their homes as early as Kansans. They said Americans don't know as much about foreign countries as Argentineans know about America — geographically politically or culturally "A lot of people don't look at the world like we (Latin Americans) do," said Roberto Garcia, international committee chairman of the Salina Rotary Club. They said they've found that many Americans don't have a fluent second language. All of the Argentinean visitors speak three languages. Lara said she was interested in coming to Kansas to meet the "real American people." Although this is her third time in the United States, this is her first trip to the Midwest. "Most important is the exchange of different realities," Lara said. • Reporter Tana Thomson can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 173, or by e-mail at sjtthomson Budget negotiations breaJc up in Topeka Talks end because some want to look again at schools By The Associated Press TOPEKA — Legislative negotiators broke off talks Tuesday night over the state budget because some senators want to reopen a debate on increasing taxes and spending on public schools. Three senators and three House members have been negotiating for four days, trying to agree on a bill for closing a $206 million gap between expected revenues and spending already approved for the state's 2002 fiscal year, which begins July 1. The negotiators said repeatedly they were making slow progress in sorting through proposals to trim spending and find new revenues without increasing taxes. But as they talked Tuesday other legislators began working on a proposal to increase spending to raise additional money for education. The spending lawmakers already have approved for fiscal 2002 includes an increase of $67 million for public schools, but many lawmakers view that as inadequate. Senate President Dave Kerr said supporters of spending more money on education may even pull gambling into the debate. He said some senators are working on proposals to legalize slot machines at dog and horse tracks or have the Kansas Lottery operate video gambling machines at clubs, taverns and convenience stores. He said under such a plan, part of the money would go to schools and the rest to other budget needs. "We're going to afford them the opportunity for another vote on education, and then we'll see whether or not they're ready to close down the session," said Kerr, R-Hutchinson. Tuesday was the seventh day since legislators returned from their annual spring break and the 92nd calendar day of their legislative session.
