Experimenting with chemistry
Baker professor introduces science to fifth graders
January 21, 2004
It could have easily been a magic show — seemingly clear liquids changing to blue, red and orange, other solutions sparking and fizzing and a balloon exploding in a burst of flames. But Gary Giachino’s visually appealing demonstrations for Baldwin Elementary School Intermediate Center fifth graders were more educational than a magic show; and Giachino didn’t play the part of a magician, but instead a chemist. The four BESIC fifth grade classes got the opportunity last week to sit in on and participate in Giachino’s annual chemistry demonstration.

Mayor gives State of the City address
January 21, 2004
Baldwin City Kansas State of the City Speech Jan. 20, 2004 By Mayor Ken Hayes The previous year saw many changes in the city of Baldwin, all of which were positive in nature. On a national level we saw our nation engaged in another conflict which called away many current and past residents to serve in our armed forces as our country invaded Iraq. Our concern and sympathy extends to those whose relatives and loved ones are serving to protect our country. On a state level we saw our legislature and governor struggle with ballooning deficits which resulted in monies being withheld from municipalities and, even more critical, our schools. In contrast to all of these troubling events that swirled around our nation and state, our community accomplished the goals that were set for itself in late 2002 and took large strides in the improvement of our community.
