L Limestone legacy by Maggie Gebhardt Gebhardt daily news. Net the Rush county fair kicks off this week with a wide variety of events and entertainment to choose from starting with wednesdays gospel family night. The event will feature concerts at the Rush county Fairgrounds East of la Crosse on Highway 4. Its the first night of the Rush county fair and the churches decided about five years ago since there was no entertainment on that night to have a gospel and family night said Mark Sizemore pastor at first Christian Church la Crosse. The evening of entertainment is packed with performances by red roots a Christian Bluegrass band composed of three Sisters who happen to be red headed triplets and the Williamson a Southern gospel band who began singing As a family group in 1969. The Williamson who Are from Oklahoma were nominated in the top ten for Best new mixed group in the singing news fan awards As Well As for breakthrough artist and favorite group awards at the absolutely gospel fan awards according to Sizemore. Red roots Sisters Are from Mississippi and the group also has been nominated for several awards including country album of the year. I think what makes them unique is that they re triplets Sizemore said of the group. They ave shared the stage with Many Well known artists. Family gospel night is a free open to the Public event made possible through first Christian Church and first lutheran Church both in la Crosse Trinity lutheran Church in Otis and Many sponsors. Jeff vap Rush county insurance owner said hers been sponsoring the event since it first started about five years ago. Its a gospel message and a very Nice evening of music out at the Fairgrounds he said. It adds to All the festivities out there and is no Cost to the Public because the sponsors pay for the concerts. Vap said he supports of All the work Sizemore does for the Community. The positive things Mark was doing around the town was the reason i wanted to help sponsor he said. I believed in the work he was doing especially with the youth. Size mores work which was instrumental in the creation of gospel family night is apparently appreciated by those outside of the Community As Well. Through our efforts the last five years there Are other counties in the area that Are coming up with their own gospel nights Sizemore said. I think its a unique idea and were very dedicated to families coming together for gospel music having fun clapping their hands and stomping their feet. Wednesdays concerts kick off at 6 30 p. M. With an opening performance by the Williamson followed by red roots at 8 p. M. The fair runs through saturday. Rush county fair kicks off with gospel family night by Angela Deines Topeka capital journal morale among Kansas teachers continues to reportedly suffer after a series of actions by the 2015 Kansas legislature. However the states largest teachers Union Hopes a mechanism that protected its members due process rights including Independent dismissal hearings removed during the 2014 legislative session can be restored by the courts soon. Public education in general is going through a death by a thousand cuts said Marcus Baltzell spokesperson for the Kansas National education association or Knea. Its nonstop. Teachers Are constantly under attack. Baltzell said state and National level Nea attorneys still Are in the process of preparing to Appeal a Shawnee county judges dismissal of a Knea lawsuit filed in August of last year. The lawsuit claims the removal of the state mandated due process rights for tenured teachers have been included in h. B. 2506, an appropriations Bill that was approved during the 2014 legislative session. The Knea contends teacher due process and state funding issues Are unrelated and inclusion of the removal of the state mandated due process rights in the appropriations Bill was unconstitutional. This court would need to determine that h. B. 2506 is an appropriations Bill according to the ruling dated june 4 and signed by Shawnee county District court judge Larry Hendricks. This the court cannot do. Earlier this month the Knea gave notice of intent to Appeal judge Hendricks ruling. At this time Baltzell said state and National Nea Legal staff members Are still working on the Appeal before it is formally filed. Its definitely still moving Forward he said last week. Baltzell said teacher rights continue to be a frontline Issue and several school districts Are negotiating some kind of due process language in their 2015 16 teacher contracts. In the meantime since the 2014 session school boards have essentially been left to create their own rules when it comes to dismissing a teacher who is no longer on probationary status Baltzell said.
