Students share
on kindness day

Students from Baldwin Elementary School spread kindness around town on Monday. As part of World Kindness Day, a student representative from each grade visited local businesses with BES assistant principal Deb Ehling-Gwin.

The students handed out a magnets, pencils, cookies and a card wishing a "Happy World Kindness Day."

Sports announcer
to sign book

Tom Hedrick, Baker University football announcer, will be signing his book, "The Art of Sportscasting"" from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at Founder's Bookstore in the Harter Student Union at Baker University.

Hedrick, who is a Baker alum, called sports for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Dallas Cowboys, the University of Kansas Jayhawks, and other teams including three Super Bowls and nine Cotton Bowls.

He teaches sports announcing at the University of Kansas and does the play-by-play for the Wildcats.

"I got my start at Baker," Hedrick said. "It was at Baker that I realized how much I enjoyed announcing."

Hedrick's book, which he considers an interesting text book, is available at the Baker University bookstore.

"I've taught that sports announcing class for all these years and there's never been a textbook," Hedrick said. "So I compiled a list of 13 topics and interviewed 91 different sportscasters."

Children's stories
told after school

Baker University is teaming up with Baldwin Elementary School to give children something to do after school.

Baker forensics students will be reading children's stories at 4 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday. The stories will be broadcast over the radio on KNBU 89.7 FM, or on cable television channel 99.

BES is providing the books, and two stories will be read during a half-hour session.

"We hope to do this the rest of the school year," said Rick Bayha, professor of communication. The radio station does not air in January.

Bayha said the story-time was the idea of BES principal Tom Mundinger.

"He thought it would be a good way to reinforce reading after school," Bayha said.
