Glenn and Evelyn Jackson 36-16-1p THE JACK Byers family thanks you for all the phone calls, cards of re- membranes, memorials and the many acts of kindness extended to us. 36-16-Ip Lettem To The Editor I The Kansas House of Representa- tives recently amended and passed HB 3008 concerning the operation and maintenance appropriations for a num- Ixr of state agencies including the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. The amendment stripped all state general fund support for Kansas State Parks. This bill and similar measures are now under consideration by the Senate. If passed into law, how would this bill effect Kansas State Parks? Parks managers have been told to consider and prepare for operating our current state park system with a 30 percent reduction in operations and maintenance funds, and a 75 percent reduction in seasonal employee fund- ing. Additionally, park user fees will again have to be increased since the legislature is wanting the department to become self sufficient. To coBsider such a significant im- pact to our state parks and their sur- rounding communities would signifi- cantly undermine the quality of life that has helped keep many people em- ployed across the state. This is unfortu- nate since a 2001 survey conducted by Responsive Management established that 65 percent of all Kansans' utilize their state parks. The survey also re- vealed that the mean average spent by each person visiting a state park was $51 each trip. The estimated visitation to Glen Elder State Park during 2001 was 161,465 people. Considering that 2.7 people per vehicle (60,000 trips) am estimated to visit the park, that results in an economic benefit to the economy of over $2.6 million annu- ally. That is without any multipliers or sales taxes considered. Statewide. the estimated economic impact generated by state parks is estimated at more than $95 million. If you have concerns or comments oncerning the funding proposal, you an= urged to contact your state repre- sentative or senator. Kurt Reed Congratulations Graduate!
