Ron Hanson, agricultural economist with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, will conduct the noon to 8 p.m. session. "Ignoring the human factor can lead to misunderstandings and ill feelings that destroy the effective working relationships and communication necessary for a successful family farming operation," said Jodi Besthorn, Smith County Extension family and consumer sciences agent. "Hanson will share his advice for families farming together and discuss the feelings and conflicts faced by other children not involved in the farming operation." Sponsors of the workshop are extension councils in Graham, Osborne, Rooks, Russell, Smith and Trego counties and the Walnut Creek District (Rush, Ness and Lane counties). Registration is $15 for one family member and $10 for each additional member. Registration forms, available at the offices of sponsoring county extension councils, must be turned in to the Ellis County Extension Office in Hays by Sunday. Additional information is available from Besthorn, 282-6823. Campaign '96 Discussion of education issues on tap at Central A meeting to discuss election issues of importance to education has been scheduled for Tuesday by the Salina School Board. The speaker will be Mark Tallman, legislative liaison for the Kansas Association of School Boards and a member of the Auburn-Washburn School Board. T CRIME Among the issues to be discussed are state funding for school districts, the state's school accreditation program called Quality Performance Accreditation, technology and school boundaries. Also, proposals that would provide parents with vouchers to help pay the cost of private schools will be considered. The meeting will be 7 p.m. Tuesday at Salina Central High School, 650 E. Crawford. The board has sent invitations to parents, supporters of the schools and others, but the public is welcome. KBI probe of tag office theft resumes Lecture Fitzwater to speak at Landon Lecture series MANHATTAN — Former White House press secretary Marlin Fitzwater will return to his alma mater next month to speak in the Kansas State University lecture series named for Alf Landon, the former Kansas FITZWATER governor. Fitzwater, who earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from the university in 1965, will deliver the 108th Landon Lecture at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 21. He will be the first alumnus to speak in the lecture series, now in its 30th year. Fitzwater, a native of Abilene, was deputy press secretary for President Reagan from 1983-85. He then served as spokesman for Vice President George Bush until January 1987, when he was appointed Reagan's press secretary. He retained the job when Bush was elected president in 1988. From Staff Reports By SHARON MONTAGUE The Salina Journal With the deadline for filing charges approaching in April 1997, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation has resumed a probe into the possible theft of money from the Saline County vehicle tag office. No one has said how much money authorities think might be missing. Investigators were said to be checking records of the $1.50 payments lienholders make to the tag office when vehicles are registered. Mike Montoya, county counselor, said the KBI investigation began before an Oklahoma City federal building was bombed in April 1995. After the bombing, the KBI agent assigned to the tag office investigation was reassigned to the bombing case. One of the bombing suspects, Terry Nichols, lived in Herington at the time of the blast, and KBI agents assisted the FBI in searching the Nichols home and gathering investigation. That left Saline County without an investigator for the tag office probe. "There was a period of time that the investigation was not active," Montoya said. But about a month ago, a new investigator was assigned. The delay in the investigation is "not the fault of the county or the KBI," he said. "Some things take precedence, and that happened to be one of them."
