M THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2001 NEWS Wheat / Gluten price falling THE SALINA JOURNAli FROM PAGE A1 But the Russell plant manager said the move was unsuccessful, and the gluten price continued to drop. The European Union found ways around it, he said, by shipping gluten out of the region to Poland and then to the U.S., or going through Canada. He said the EU "wasn't totally cricket" with the rule. "There was always more gluten coming into the U.S. than the market could bear." The price for gluten was 70 cents a pound when Willits joined Heartland Wheat Growers three years ago. Farmland Industries owns 78 percent of the gluten plant in Russell. The rest is owned by Agco of Russell; Midland Marketing, Hays; Ellsworth Co-op, Ellsworth; Wallace County Coop, Sharon Springs; and Minneola Co-op, Minneola. The plant closing will have no immediate financial impact on Agco, said Bill Burton, general manager, but he admitted Wednesday was a depressing day "For the community, we hate to see a loss of jobs and a loss of another market for wheat," Burton said. "That will be our biggest impact." Willits said the owners are unsure about the plant's future. It processed about 4 million bushels of wheat a year, raised within 100 miles of Russell, and sold between 20 million and 23 million pounds of gluten a year. Ken Thomas, president of Heartland Wheat Growers, said in a press release Wendesday that options may include selling the plant, finding a partner or permanent closure. "The plant will continue to take in wheat until the end of the week, but it's not buying any new contracts, Willits said. Production will completely shut down over the next 60 days. T MURRAY STATE Threat closes campus By The Associated Press MURRAY, Ky — Murray State University, acting on anonymous threats Wednesday that a bomb had been planted in every building on cam- pvis, suspended classes and closed buildings until next week. Finals scheduled to begin Saturday were postponed. Classes were to resume Monday at the university of 9,000 students. The university said in a statement that "suspects have been detained and are being questioned. ... The release of further information at this time could jeopardize the investigation." The university appealed to fraternities and sororities as well as churches to help house students who were forced to leave their dormitories and could not go home. Church / Funds, volunteers needed FROM PAGE A1 That amount doesn't include any restoration expenses. Until .more money comes in, the church will sit on blocks behind the museum. Bob Smith Salvage, New Cambria, has donated some of its services in getting the church moved to Salina. "I think this thing is worth it," Smith said. Jack O'Neal said the church could be complete in three to five years if the work is done by volunteers. "If we are lucky enough to raise the funds ... then we are talking about only one year," he said. The church will sit next to a one-room school house that wa& opened to the public this past weekend. It took six years to get the Cox School District building onto a foundation after it was moved to the museum. Branches battered the top of the church a bit as it was escorted down the final stretch to the museum's back yard. As the truck pulled the church next to the spot that would be its final destination and before being swept off for a memorable photo in the cab of the truck that carried the church home, Jack O'Neal was asked how it feels to have the church at the museum. After a moment, he could only shake his head, smile and say, "Great. Great." FfopfoPri iiiiiiiiFiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiTiii^^ m iiiniiTiir •— Sai • (785) 823-2285 •627 E.
