Nineteen area residents answered "Yes" to this question and will be entering the 12th Leadership Mitchell County class. This September, Leadership Mitchell County will enter its 12th year of developing and enhancing the leadership potential of local residents who want to make a difference in their communities. The civic culture of Kansas towns, cities, and regions can be transformed in ways that support adaptive work through collaborative Civic engagement. Class 12 participants include; 15 from Mitchell Co., two from Jewell Co., and two from Osborne Co. The program is designed to develop and activate people to connect passion with civic purpose. By involving the two surrounding counties, LMC is looking to expand its network of engaged indi- viduals. Holding true to LMC's vision -- North Central Kansas thrives through connected people of passion, purpose, and integrity; strengthening rural Kan- sas values- the program hopes to reach individuals who have great potential, but have yet to activate themselves in a way that makes them more effective. 7 Through a series of programs presented over a six-month period, participants will learn that "leadership is an activ- ity, not a position or authority" as stated by the Kansas Leadership Center. They will enjoy informative presentations by a variety of area and tate leaders, tours, panel discussion and dialogue with community decision makers. Areas of emphasis include: leadership and communication skills; arts, travel and tourism; law enforcement and cor- rections; agribusiness and ag technol- ogy; health care; education; Kansas issues; and state government and eco- nomic development• The 2011-2012 class includes the following people; Amanda Atkisson, Eric Bourbon, Bonnie Cheney, Jessi Cunningham, Sarah Dickman, Brandy Goddard, Barb Grove, Sarah Heinen, Christy Martin, Matt Otte, Bridget Peters, Crystal Pters, Randy Paxon, Jay Rowh, Stephanie Simmons, Sumi Sneath, Linda Stewart, Jenny Stillwell, and Kristin Williams. Organizations and individual who have contributed to the continuing suc- cess of this dynamic program include: AgMark LLC, First National Bank, Farrnway Credit Union, Carrico Imple- ment, Guaranty State Bank, Super 8 Motel, Farmway Coop Inc, City of Beloit, Cunninghams, Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems, Belpit In- dustrial Development, Ringneck Ranch, Subway, Wilson Telephone, NCK Technical College.

Ac- cording to Don Snyder, emergency director, the doors are opened in the event of a tornado warning, and some- times, if the sky is looking especially bad at tornado watch. If you are in a wheel chair, walker, or disabled, use the double doors in the alley. Be sure to puU your car up, so others can get to the door. The southwest front glass door is open to everyone..
