Kiowa County / Greensburg April 4 -10, 2010

Public Information Update
Sunday, April 4, – Saturday, April 10, 2010

The Kiowa County Ministerial Alliance would like to invite everyone to a community wide Good Friday service at 7 p.m. at the Wellsford Community Church.

The Lighthouse Worship Center is starting a small group for parents called “Parents First.” It is a study by Dr. Richard D. Dobbins focusing on helping parents become their children’s primary sex educator. Some of the topics include (but are not limited to):

- Teach your kids to respect the sacredness of their bodies.
- Help them make sense out of and embrace the sexual rules and guidelines you give them.
- Instruct your children about sexual abuse and have a plan in place to deal with it.
- Talk to your child before he/she gets into an "unsafe" situation.
- Help your child avoid problems with the Web-based porn industry and sexual predators.
- Manage wisely the most commonly asked questions about delicate issues without stumbling for words.
- Explain good sexual stewardship with them (even if you haven't been an angel).

The group meets weekly on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:25 at LWC beginning Sunday, April 4th.

The 5.4.7 Arts Center will be hosting an Art Auction on Saturday, April 10, 2010. Bid on a wide selection of art from Kansas artists to support 5.4.7 Art Center’s future exhibits and educational opportunities. Doors open at 6 p.m. to view the artwork and enjoy hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer.

Bidding begins at 7 p.m. The live auction will include a variety of artwork including paintings, ceramics, photography, sculpture, mixed media and more!

Many of you will remember that in September of 2008 over 300 volunteers from across the country lead by New York Firefighters came to Greensburg to be part of an “American Barn Raising” at the Kiowa County Fairgrounds. This year the New York Says Thank You Foundation will travel to Mena, Arkansas to help rebuild a community that was devastated by a tornado on April 9, 2009. This 9/11 Anniversary Build will be the largest volunteer project as we prepare to rebuild a community by constructing 5 homes and rebuilding a 4-H Extension Office.

On Saturday, May 29, 2010, a Greensburg "Paying it Forward" Benefit will take place in Greensburg to help raise money for this year’s NYSTY Build. We will have stops at various businesses throughout Greensburg where items will be raffled off or for silent auction. The Benefit is open to anyone whether you are on foot, in a car or on motorcycle. Wristbands will be available and will include the free noon meal at the 4-H Fair Grounds and a t-shirt. If you would like your business to be involved, would like to donate items, donate money or generally help out, contact John Stoltenberg, event coordinator, at 620-255-3283 or Tom Corns at the Greensburg State Bank.

Data recovery from physically damaged hardware involves a variety of techniques. Replacing the damaged components of the hard disk may help in the process of hard drive of it. However, for complete reconstruction, an imaging process is used. This image is then stored and read on another reliable medium. This allows maximum if not complete recovery of lost data.
