Vandals shoot up $4,000 in damage By DAN ENGLAND The Salina Journal : An estimated 35 vehicles in •> the south and central parts of ' Salina were shot with BB guns : between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Fri, day, shattering car windows and • angering their owners. ' "Vandalism makes you angry, ' and you wish you could catch : them, but what can you do?" said ; a Salina man who didn't want to • be identified. "Normally we : parked the cars by the driveway, ; but our daughter just happened ' to park on the street." <•• The shootings caused an estimated $4,000 of damage to the M?ars, said a dispatcher from the ' Salina Police Department. A window also was s"hot out at the Bennington State Bank, 2130 S. Ohio, causing $100 worth of damage. Police have no suspects but think the shootings were done by one person or the same group of people. There were no witnesses. Most of the shootings caused $50 of damage to the windshields, although some caused up to $200. Victims said their insurance probably wouldn't cover the damage. Most of the shootings occurred in the block of E. Ellsworth Street, the area behind the shopping centers in south Salina, such as Otto and Hageman roads, a few in the "Hill" area and some in the 800 block of S. Fifth. Gene Otey of Salina said he didn't even find out about the damage until his son borrowed the truck Saturday morning. "I was surprised," Otey said. "I wish it hadn't of happened, and I'd like to catch the kid that did this. I think a little corrective action might change his view of life. I was surprised because this kind of thing normally dpesn't happen in Salina. I hope they catch the kid." When Otey was asked if he thought the vandals would be caught, he said he didn't know. "I hope they do," he said. "But it's hard to say." KELLY PRESNELL / The Salina Journal Sallnan Sarah Linenberger has to work from her knees because of a broken rake handle Saturday morning as she helps other volunteers spruce up a house on Make A Difference Day. Making a difference Volunteers reap super rewards from hard work By GORDON D. FIEDLER The Salina Journal Battling gusty winds and a thick understory of vegetation, Gifford McCargar coaxed his electric leaf vacuum across the lawns of two houses in the 400 block of South Phillips.. ' "There must, be three years worth of leaves here," said McCargar, one of more than a dozen adults and youth who attacked the thick growth with chain saws, clippers, rakes and hand snips as part of the sixth annual national Make a Difference Day initiated by USA Weekend Magazine. "The pay is terrible," longtime volunteer McCargar said, "but the rewards are super." The residents of the homes are elderly and unable to do yardwork. They read about na- tional'campaign and Ihe need for local projects and called the Salina Area Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers Program, part of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, which coordinated Saturday's effort. RSVP director Nancy Klostermeyer said this project was selected for Make A Difference Day because of its potential to appeal to a wide volunteer audience. "It absorbs the greatest number of volunteers in terms of ages and abilities," Klostermeyer said. "It gets the most variety of people involved." Indeed, the list of scheduled volunteers couldn't have been more varied: RSVP regulars, individuals and families, a church confirmation class, 4-H j members, Cub Scouts and residents from Focus on the Future, an independent living facility in Salina for troubled young adults ages 16 to 21 satisfying their requirement for community service. Supervising the cleanup project was Connie Trawny, a volunteer for the Interfaith Caregivers program whose mission is to allow people to remain independent longer in their own homes. "This was work (the residents) were not capable of any more," she said. "Because they were next door to each other we could use time to its greatest advantage." For Linda Baumberger, this was her second Make A Difference Day contribution. Last year she and others planted trees in selected yards and at Bill Burke Park, where they also painted some picnic tables. "My daughter (Heather) is in 4-H and she's always looking for community service projects," Baumberger said. For her, volunteering isn't a foreign concept. "I'm from a small community and everyone helped out there. I don't know if we called it volunteer activity," she said. Sweat beaded the brow of volunteer Rex Eberly, whose chain saw made a difference to the lower reaches of an unruly cedar in the back yard, and to the numerous weed trees, some wrist-thick at the base, that had sprouted along the fence line. "I read about this in the paper," Eberly said. "I felt like it was a needed (project). I had some time this morning, so...." Great Plains helps out Employees of Great Plains Manufacturing have made a difference for Hawthorne Elementary School students. Company employees donated $1,400, which was presented to the school on Friday, for field trips for the students. The amount raised means Hawthorne's kindergarteners through third-grade will visit the Wichita Zoo. The fourth- through sixth-graders will take a trip to the Kansas Cosmos- phere in Hutchinson. The trips have not yet been scheduled. Mary Kirk, an employee of Great Plains who organized the effort, said she wasn't sure how much money they would be able to raise. "We did a great job," she said. "I was surprised we ended up with as good a response as we did." Individual members of the Civitan Club, which Kirk attends, also donated to the project. Kirk said she hopes to organize a Make a Difference event for the company next year. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — Martha Steinert, Hoisington.
