Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - May 3, 1984, Hutchinson, Kansas 'Project Mailbag' goes west where Greeley did Hutchinson News Thurs., May 3, 1984 Page 2 By Linda Mowery-Denning Harris News Service INDUSTRY - In late May of 1859, American journalist Horace Greeley boarded the Leavenworth and Pike's Peak Express stagecoach en route to Denver. One of the stops he made was Station 8 in Industry, a small town on the Clay-Dickinson County line. There, Greeley ate a meal of bacon, greens, applesauce, pie and bread. On Tuesday, that meal, served in a tent so many years ago, was recreated for the 125th anniversary of the L&PP. About 275 people gathered in Industry to greet a stagecoach, provided by Old Abi- lene Town, and an old-time spring wagon. "We wanted to recreate this as closely as we could," said Cindy Is-sitt, business manager of the Dickinson County Historial Society. "It also fulfills one of the articles of our constitution - to teach history to the community." The Industry celebration was part of "Project Mailbag," which was conceived earlier this year by Fred and Marsha Magley, a farm couple from Bird City. The project has since snowballed from Cheyenne County to other parts of Kansas and several counties in Nebraska and Colorado. In the project, a homemade can- vas mailbag containing greetings to Colorado from Kansas officials is being carried through more than two dozen counties by horse, stagecoach, wagon and other modes of transportation. Mail continues to be collected as the project moves along. "So far, she's running on schedule and that's all we can hope," Mrs. Magley said. She said bad weather had been the chief problem since the trek started last Saturday near Leavenworth. Mrs. Magley said the Industry celebration was one of the biggest planned along the 689-mile L&PP route, which also passes through ROLL OUT THE BARREL - Barton County Community College students Brett Lowe, of Great Bend, left, and Jason Schenk, of Abilene, roll their beer kegs for all they're worth at the keg roll relay contest Tuesday on the BCCC campus in Great Bend. The winners of the four-person team contest each got a set By Rick Dunaway of four pilsner beer glasses, while the second-place team members each got a black-and-gold beer mug from the co-sponsor, Kummer Wholesale.

Cloud, Mitchell, Jewell, Smith, Phillips, Norton, Decatur and Rawlins counties before it enters Colorado. The major celebration will be May 11-13 as the project goes through Rawlins County and then back into Kansas and Cheyenne County. Organizers are expecting as many as 1,500 people at a buffalo barbecue on May 13 in St. Francis. The mailbag will be carried into Colorado the following day and on May 18 the journey will end in Denver at the office of the Rocky Mountain News newspaper, which also is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Scott County newspaper delivers first issue By Harris News Service SCOTT CITY - The first issue of the Scott County Times was distributed Wednesday. The editor is Leroy Wilson. The first edition - 16 tabloid pages - featured color photography, a sunset scene and picture at Lake Scott that accompanied a story about planned renovation at the state park. Wilson was editor at the Scott City News Chronicle for two months prior to the beginning of the Times. Stephan to challenge Legislature By Lori Linenberger United Press International TOPEKA - Citing a lack of checks and balances, Attorney General Robert Stephan said Wednesday he is challenging in court the Legislature's method of changing regulations state agencies use to carry out the law. In a news conference, Stephan .said he has asked the Kansas Supreme Court to invalidate all resolutions passed by the Legislature this year and last that change or repeal administrative rules and regulations, which are used by state agencies to carry out the law or exempt people and agencies from it. "I would tell anyone for whom these resolutions apply not to lose Stephan any sleep (waiting for them to take effect) because they are unconstitutional," Stephan said. Stephan said the Legislature's method of revoking, rejecting or changing rules and regulations "is a case of the Legislature overstepping the boundaries separating the three branches of government and ... violating the constitutional requirement that all laws it enacts must be presented to the governor for signature or veto." Currently, the Legislature uses concurrent resolutions to modify rules and regulations. Both the House and Senate must approve the resolution, but it is not presented to the governor. "There are probably a number of special interests that find this the easiest way to get around executive oversight - they go over and lobby to the legislators," Stephan said. Stephan said he informed Gov. John Carlin, House Speaker Mike Hayden, R-Atwood, and Senate President Ross Doyen, R-Con- | The Almanac cordia, of his intent to file the action with the high court. The two legislative leaders sent Stephan a letter Wednesday saying they welcomed the court review to determine whether the Legislature is overstepping its authority. "I certainly don't anticipate that the governor will object to our purpose in filing the action, nor do I believe he would in any way disagree with our conclusion," Stephan said. "It was simply felt necessary that, as chief executive, he be included ... for the purpose of the court issuing an order to ignore the Legislature's invalid resolutions." In February, Stephan issued a legal opinion to the Legislature saying its manner of acting on rules and regulations was unconstitutional and advising of options, including passing regular bills on which the governor could act. An ad hoc committee appointed by legislative leaders to review Stephan's opinion recommended the Legislature continue its practice.

COMMING Soon to Hutchinson Dnnc a ???? a A Real VALU Wesleyan dinner gets results By Harris News Service SALINA - President Marshall Stanton's candid and earnest address to a group of Salinans last week is giving Kansas Wesleyan a glimmer of hope for improving | its short-range financial stability. Stanton said the col-1 e g e ' s trustees have received positive results from follow-up calls to Stanton those attending the April. 24 dinner. Not only are regular con- tributors continuing support, but donors from years past are renewing their commitments, and first-time pledges are being received. At the dinner, Stanton told of the college's serious cash flow problems, loss of credit, meager endowment and enormous debt. "I see candor as a fundamental component of credibility," Stanton said Monday. The follow-up calls have just started, so Stanton is hesitant to make predictions. He did say, however, he was optimistic the college would reach its short-term need of $750,000. Stanton said that amount is needed to meet current expenses and deficits from the two previous years.
