Whatever the situation, if the Kansas National Guard is called to back up local authorities dealing with a civil disturbance, the Guard wants to be ready. That was the purpose of a two- day training session that began Saturday at the Kansas Regional Training Institute, 1844 Jumper Road. Helping local law enforcement deal with civil disturbances always has been one of the Guard's roles, said Lt. Col. Rick Dodson, provost marshal with the 35th Infantry Division of the Kansas Army National Guard at Fort Leavenworth. But it wasn't until the past year that the Guard units received more than perfunctory training in that mission. Maj. Ron Miller, head of the training academy for the Kansas City Police Department, became involved when one of his police officers, who also serves in the Guard, told him about the new push for civil disturbance training. "In 1993, we worked with them side-by-side because of the Wyandotte County flooding," Miller said. "Our officers rode with Guard officers in military vehicles patrolling evacuated areas.This was a natural coming together." The Guard and the Kansas City police department worked for a year putting together the military training project. Eventually, Kansas City police trained nearly two dozen Guard officers as instructors in defensive tactics and violence control. Saturday, those Kansas City and Guard instructors trained more than 100 military police and security police with Guard units across the state. Saturday was spent in the classroom, learning tactics and defen-- sive moves. Today, the classroom moves outside, where Guard members will practice their tactics through several different scenarios. Salina Police Chief Jim Hill and representatives of the Kansas Department of Corrections are expected to be on hand, to watch the Guard members work through the scenarios. Miller said he'd talked with Hill Friday, and will continue to talk with representatives of police departments across the state. Dodson said Guard members also plan to visit all of the state's prisons to learn their layouts and meet representatives so they will be prepared for possible uprisings. Miller and Dodson hope to show police that Guard members are receiving training similar to that received by law enforcement, so officials will feel comfortable calling in the Guard when they've drained local resources. Goodyear, Steelworkers settle contract dispute By The Associated Press CINCINNATI, Ohio — Goodyear and the United Steelworkers union announced a tentative contract agreement Saturday night that may eventually end a strike that has idled 12,000 workers in seven states, including plants in Topeka, Kan., for two weeks. Details were not disclosed. Employees will not go back to work until the proposal is ratified by union members, the union and company said in a statement Those votes will be scheduled soon. The strike began April 20 after negotiations between North America's largest tiremaker and United Steelworkers of America stalled hours before the previous agreement expired.
