MSES experiments with projects
March 13, 2002
Looking at and enjoying the color of leaves isn’t uncommon around Baldwin City, but Marion Springs Elementary School fifth-grader Sharelle Thornton took her examination one step further. For her project for the Douglas County Science Fair, Thornton studied the pigment found in 10 different colored leaves. “I wanted to show people how many other different colors are in leaves,” she said. By rubbing the leaves on filter paper and then soaking the filter paper in acetone, Thornton, with the help of a magnifying glass, was able to view the variety of pigments that made up each leaf’s color. “It sort of turned out like I thought it would,” she said of her science project. “But I thought there would be less colors.” Thornton’s project was just one of about 40 projects that MSES students entered into the Douglas County Science Fair last week.

Thanks for ‘Chili’ golf success
March 13, 2002
To the editor: On Feb. 23, the Baldwin City Branch of Big Brothers/Big Sisters hosted the Second Annual “Chili” Golf Classic. It was a beautiful day and we had over 52 golfers that participated in a day full of fun and all for a good cause! An event like the “Chili” Golf Classic would not have happened without a dedicated Advisory Board made up of Kirby Hayes, Barbara Pressgrove, Monte Lauridsen, Annie Bowersox, Connie Neuenswander, Kelli Farha, Nancy Richard, Pam Colson, Glenda Rockers and the help of Larry Colson. John Thomas again did a great job in spearheading this event and we appreciate his enthusiasm!
